2023 Election: INEC announces date to resume continuous voter Registration

2023 Election: INEC announces date to resume continuous voter Registration (Updated: 1 year ago)


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced a date for the resumption of nationwide Continuous Voter Registration

INEC’s Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, on Thursday during a briefing in Abuja said the registration will commence on June 28 across Nigeria’s 774 Local Government Areas ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Yakubu disclosed that the registration exercise would be carried out continuously for over a year until the third quarter of 2022.

He said: “The CVR could not recommence in 2020, due largely to the COVID-19 pandemic. In line with the general advice by health officials regarding events involving large groups of people, we considered it inauspicious to restart the CVR at the height of the pandemic. In the light of the pandemic, the commission promised the nation that it would recommend the CVR in the first quarter of 2021.

“The first quarter of 2021 ended yesterday (Wednesday) and obviously the commission was unable to restart the CVR exercise. In consideration of these challenges and the measures we have taken to overcome them, the commission is now in a position to announce Monday, June 28 2022 as the date for the recommencement of the CVR exercise nationwide.”
