INEC rules out extension of voter registration

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has ruled out possibilities of extending the ongoing nationwide continuous voter’s registration (CVR) insisting that it will close on the thirty -first of this month  as scheduled.

Mr Festus Okoye, INEC National Commissioner in charge of Voter Education and Publicity, made this known in Awka, Anambra State.

He noted that CVR would be brought to an end to allow the commission carry out other constitutional responsibilities.

Mr Okoye explained that the commission would make available all PVCs for those who registered or transferred voters between January and June of this year in October.

INEC National Commissioner noted that those who enrolled between first of this month to thirty -first would receive theirs by November this year, at various local government offices of INEC.
