Inec Creates 1,235 New Polling Units In Imo

According to the Resident Electoral Commissioner Prof. Francis Chukwuemeka Ezeonu, Imo now boasts of 4,758 polling units in the state.

An additional l 1,235 polling units have been created by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Imo state in preparation for 2023 elections.

According to the Resident Electoral Commissioner Prof. Francis Chukwuemeka Ezeonu, Imo now boasts of 4, 758 polling units in the state.

Speaking to newsmen in Owerri on Wednesday, Ezeonu said the polling units were created with threshold of 500 to 750 registered voters in each polling unit.

Under the new arrangement, Owerri municipality has 122 new polling unit, followed by Owerri West with 117 polling units.

Owerri North and Ikeduru local government areas came third and fourth with 91 and 80 polling units respectively while Aboh Mbaise has 79 new polling units.

The resident electoral commissioner said the commission took painstaking efforts to ensure equity was used in determining the new polling units, adding the exercise was undertaken to expand voter access to polling units in line with expectations of the law.

The law, according to him, allowed the commission to “Convert existing voting point settlements into full polling units and where necessary relocate new or existing ones to places where they are closer to and/or more accessible to voters and unserved areas.

“Decongest existing polling units by reducing the number of voters per polling units, continue to improve the quality of access to electoral services provided to all Nigerian voters by the commission, including better access at polling units for persons with disabilities (PWDs).

“Improve health and safety conditions at polling units during elections in order to comply with COVID-19 protocols and address declining voter turnout at elections due to lack of access to polling units.”


Ezeonu said the commission would try to ensure that polling units are located in public places, preferably centrally located and accessible, non-partisan, non-sectarian locations such as schools and town halls.

He said also that provision was made for spacious facilities to cater for adequately sitting election officers, political party agents, election observers and voters if necessary.

Ezeonu maintained under no conditions would polling units be located in private compounds, royal places, residents of government officials, political party buildings, worship centres or anywhere that could deny voters access and disputed buildings or facilities.
