INEC Resumes Voters Registration In Imo Today

INEC Sets Date For 2023 Nigerian Elections Campaign

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has agreed to lift the suspension on Continuous Voter Registration Imo State.

The exercise was halted in the state following an attack by gunmen on staff members of the commission.

In a statement issued by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Oguwike Nwachukwu, he said the governor hinted on Sunday at the end of a church service, that the CVR will commence on Monday (today).

He said, “By Monday, April 25, 2022, the CVR will resume in all the designated centres while the three local governments under ban will carry out the registration at their local government headquarters.

“Those who are deliberately scaring the people away from registering are enemies of the state who want to draw the state back knowing full well that the INEC registration and the population census are yardsticks for Federal Revenue Allocation to states and local governments.

“Therefore, there is every need for every citizen of Imo State, 18 years and above, to go and register and obtain the PVC for the forthcoming election.”

The governor said the move is necessary to allow Imo citizens to register and obtain their Permanent Voter Cards before the next general election.
