The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday announce that it is difficult to extend the Contentious Voters Registration, CVR, which was suspended on Sunday.
Recall that few concerned Nigerians had requested that the CVR be extended to enable eligible would-be voters to register to take part in the coming elections.
But the Akwa Ibom State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mike Igini, who talked on a Channels TV program on Friday, said the commission expected to suspend the activity to enable it to start different cycles to remove every one of multiple registrants.
He said, “Now that we have officially suspended the CVR process, we have to consolidate; aggregate the data and thereafter run the biometric accreditation system to weed out all multiple registrants.
“Thereafter, Section 19 [Electoral Act 2022] says we must do a one-week display of the voter register for the commission to accept claims; objections as it relates to either omitted names or names of individuals that ought not to be on that register as identified by people in the area.”
