VOTERS REGISTRATION TO CONTINUE BEYOND JUNE 30
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has extended the ongoing continuous voter registration (CVR) initially scheduled to end on June 30, 2022.
This was announced by the Chairman of the commission, Professor Mahmood Yakubu during the Youth Vote Count concert at the Old Parade Ground, Abuja, on Saturday.
He disclosed that in the last five days, the center had registered over 14,000 Nigerians at the event place alone. In his words, “We have about 50 voter registration machines. For as long as you people have been trying to register to obtain your PVC, we will continue to register you and we will continue to make sure that you get your PVC.”
He had earlier affirmed that youths wanted to know when the registration will end. He then stated that he was assuring on behalf of the commission that the registration will not end on June 30 since people were still trying to register. He averred, “we will continue to register”
An Abuja Federal High Court, presided over by Justice Mobolaji Olajuwon on Monday had granted an order of interim injunction restraining INEC from implementing its June 30 deadline.
