INEC rejects calls for extension of voters registration

Share This

INEC-Attahiru-JegaAs the voters’ registration exercise ended Monday, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has ruled out the possibility of any further extension of the exercise.

Though, the Commission said that it noted with concern the agitation in some quarters for an extension of the second phase of the exercise, it said that a new process of registration of voters would soon commence at the local government levels across the country.

According to a statement, signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Kayode Idowu, “Much as the Commission is eager to ensure that all legitimate persons who are yet to register as voters

have the opportunity to do so, it is logistically impossible to extend this phase of the CVR beyond its scheduled deadline (i.e., Monday, August 25).

“This phase of the exercise, which commenced on Wednesday, August 20th, 2014, involved the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and 11 states, namely: Yobe, Bauchi, Jigawa, Sokoto, Kwara, Anambra, Ebonyi, Ondo, Oyo Delta and Cross River”.
