2023 Election: INEC Reveals Why Voters Registration CAN’T Be Extended

The Continuous Voters Registration, or CVR, which was halted on Sunday, is essentially difficult to reinstate, according to a statement made by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday.

Recall that a number of worried Nigerians had urged the CVR’s extension so that eligible people could register to vote in the upcoming elections.

However, Mike Igini, the Akwa Ibom State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), stated that the commission needed to halt the activity so that it could start additional procedures to weed out all multiple registrants on a Channels TV program on Friday.

He said, “Now that we have officially suspended the CVR process, we have to consolidate; aggregate the data and thereafter run the biometric accreditation system to weed out all multiple registrants.

“Thereafter, Section 19 [Electoral Act 2022] says we must do a one-week display of the voter register for the commission to accept claims; objections as it relates to either omitted names or names of individuals that ought not to be on that register as identified by people in the area.”
