The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it will suspend the registration of Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) online pre-registration nationwide on May 30.
According to INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, the online pre-registration and physical registration will continue until the CVR exercise is suspended on June 30.
He said this would give time to those who registered online to complete their registration physically and would allow INEC clean up the registration data and print the Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) ahead of the general elections.
Yakubu further added that the “ commission is required to make Regulations and Guidelines for the implementation of the provisions of the Electoral Act. These Regulations and Guidelines, together with the Constitution and the Electoral Act, constitute the electoral legal framework that govern the conduct of elections.”
Recall that INEC opened the registration portal in January 2022. Meanwhile, The online pre-registration can be accessed on INEC portal.
