INEC Alerts Nigerians Of Fake Online Registration Portal

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has alerted Nigerians of the existence of a fake online site urging Nigerians to enroll for “Voter Card PVC” registration.

This comes barely 24 hours after INEC announced the suspension of voter registration across the country.

The fake online portal claimed that the Federal Government has approved PVC registration online to avoid the unnecessary crowd in the “NIMC”.

INEC warned that the site is not linked to the Commission and the link/portal is spurious and from a dubious source.

INEC’s National Commissioner, Festus Okoye who disclosed that the commission has concluded its Continuous Voter Registration exercise for the 2023 general elections in a statement released on Monday August 1, reiterated that they are solely responsible for organizing, undertaking, and supervising national elections in the country and does not share this responsibility with anybody or organization.
