Mike Igini, the former Akwa Ibom State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), has accused some staff of the commission of registering underage voters.


Igini blamed the collapse of values in society for being responsible for underage registration, berating parents who allowed their underaged children to register as voters.


He disclosed this on Thursday while featuring on the Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme.


He called for the prosecution of the culprits, noting that persons involved in the INEC registration process were all staff of the commission, which makes it possible to trace those involved in the act.


“Those who have done this are staff of INEC, I can tell you. If you register as a registration officer, you register with your personal ID (identity card), all of them can be traced.


“Anyone who undermines the confidence of public institutions must be brought to book,” he said.
