Nigeria ElectionsPoliticsINEC To Resume Nationwide Voter Registration On June 28

ABUJA — Deputy Director of Voter Education Division of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Mary Nkem has declared the readiness of the commission to resume the nationwide Continuous Voter Registration scheduled for June 28.

Mary Nkem who made this known on Thursday at a roadshow on the CVR organised by the commission in Abuja said the exercise would be taking place from 9 am to 3 pm from Monday to Friday, excluding weekends.

She said the roadshow was to create awareness and to mobilise eligible voters in Abuja for the resumption of the exercise.

Nkem also said that the commission would come up with the guidelines for the collection of permanent voters’ cards.

“It will involve two processes, that is, online pre-registration and physical registration.

“So, people can sit in the comfort of their homes and login details for registration.

“Then go to any of our local government or state office to capture their biometrics and photographs, or you appear physically at any designated register,” she said.

“It is also to let FCT residents know those who are being targeted in the exercise; those who have turned 18 after the last registration exercise, or those who are more than 18 years but have never registered.

“This exercise is also for those who have issues with their accreditation during the past elections, those who have issues with their Permanent Voter Cards or their biometric details,” Nkem said.

At the roadshow were INEC staff members from the voter education and publicity department, members of the National Youth Service Corps, among others.
