The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it had concluded arrangements to resume Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) on Monday, June 28.
Prof. Mahmood Yakubu the commission’s chairman, made this known this at their meeting with the Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) for the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Abuja.
Yakubu explained the commission was working tirelessly to update its registration software to accommodate the newly established polling units to enable expected voters to register.
“However, more work still lies ahead. Apart from the CVR excersise, we shall continue our preparations for two bye-elections scheduled for June 19 in Sabon Gari State Constituency in Kaduna State and Gwaram Federal Constituency in Jigawa State,”
He added that the commission was waiting for the official declaration of vacancies by the House of Representatives for the Jos North/Bassa Federal Constituency in Plateau and Lere Federal Constituency in Kaduna State.
Yakubu said INEC had successfully concluded stakeholder engagements on the expansion of voter access to pulling units.
Yakubu said the commission would soon meet to conclude the compilation and coding of polling units and would thereafter make the necessary information public.
