The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has agreed to extend the ongoing Continuous Voters’ Registration (CVR) exercise by 60 days.
Registration was initially slated to end this month but calls to extend the CVR exercise came from Nigerians who are yet to register.
On Wednesday, June 15, the House of Representatives urged the Independent National Electoral Commission to extend the June 30, 2022, deadline to enable more Nigerians to register.
Briefing lawmakers on Wednesday, June 22, the Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Electoral Matters, Aishatu Jibril Dukku, told her colleagues that the Commission had agreed to extend the CVR to 60 days.
She told members of the House at plenary today:
“The Committee held a meeting with INEC yesterday (Tuesday) and they agreed to extend the CVR, all our resolutions were approved.”
