INEC Extends Voters Registration By 60 Days

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has extended the ongoing Continuous Voters' Registration (CVR) exercise by 60 days.

AllNews Nigeria reports that the exercise was initially slated to end this month, June 2022, but due to the recent increase in registrants across the South-East states and Lagos most especially, the electoral body was forced to extend the deadline.

Also, the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had stopped the electoral body from ending the exercise.

Briefing lawmakers on Wednesday, Aishatu Jibril Dukku, the Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Electoral Matters, told her colleagues that INEC had agreed to extend the CVR to 60 days.

“The Committee held a meeting with INEC yesterday (Tuesday) and they agreed to extend the CVR, all our resolutions were approved,” Dukku said.
