The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has mentioned the continued nationwide Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) can be quickly suspended 60 days to the graduation of the 2019 common elections.
The fee in an announcement issued on Wednesday in Abuja by Solomon Soyebi, National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, mentioned the train can be suspended to because of a change in electoral legislation.
Soyebi disclosed that to this point over 4 million Nigerians had been registered throughout the nation, within the train that started on April 27, 2017.
“The nationwide CVR is to afford all eligible Nigerians, 18 years and above, who didn’t register within the earlier train, a possibility to take action.
“So far over 4 million have registered throughout the nation.
“The fee needs to guarantee all eligible Nigerians that the CVR train is designed to proceed indefinitely as envisaged by the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended).
“However, as offered for in Section 9 (5) of the Electoral Act (as amended), the CVR will probably be quickly suspended 60 days to the graduation of the subsequent General Elections scheduled for February 2019.
“The train will resume after the conclusion of the elections.
”The Commission encourages all eligible Nigerians to register at our places of work in all native authorities headquarters and different formally designated areas throughout the nation between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.”
Soyebi mentioned that full details about the train might be obtained at INEC state places of work.(NAN)
