Kate Henshaw calls out INEC for disenfranchising her and 20 others
Kemi Filani recalls that actress, Kate Henshaw called out INEC for disenfranchising her and twenty others in her polling unit during the 2023 presidential election held on 25th February.
The veteran lamented that she has not been able to cast her vote because the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) (an electronic device designed to read Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) and authenticate voters) says she is not registered.
Henshaw further disclosed that she found her name on the register on the wall and on INEC register however, she can’t vote. She called on the person in charge of INEC in Lagos to find a quick solution to the problem.
While noting that she won’t take things easy with INEC because they are playing with her destiny, she called on international media bodies like Cable Network News (CNN), and British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) to take note of what is happening.
She said: “You people are playing with my destiny. INEC eh! I registered, I transferred my card, i picked up my PVC now you BVAS is saying I’m not registered. But I have seen my name on the register on the wall and in your website. What are you guys doing? Its like you people want problem with me.
