The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will not end the ongoing continuous voter registration (CVR) on June 30, 2022.
Chairman of the Commission, Mahmood Yakubu, disclosed this on Saturday during the Youth Vote Count concert at the old parade ground, Abuja.
Recall that the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise was earlier scheduled to end on June 30, but some organisations filed a suit at the Federal High Court, Abuja, praying the court to compel INEC to extend the deadline, following reports of a surge of voters in registration centres.
Fielding questions from newsmen on Saturday during the vote count concert, Yakubu said the ongoing continuous voter registration will continue to ensure that eligible Nigerians are not deprived of their PVC.
“The second thing is you want to know when will this registration end. Is it going to end on the 30th of June in the next five days?
On behalf of INEC, let me assure you, e no go end for 30th June for as long as we have you people trying to register to obtain your PVC, we will continue to register you and we will continue to make sure that you get your PVC”, Yakubu said.
