2019: INEC Closes First Quarter Voters’ Registration
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Tuesday said the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) for the first quarter in 2018, which began on January 8, has successfully come to an end.
Mrs. Ndidi Okarfor, Head, Voter Education and Publicity of INEC in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) told newsmen in Abuja that the exercise ended for the quarter on March 22.
According to Okafor, the registration was programmed quarterly.
“What the commission is set to do now is the display of preliminary voter register so that people can check their information and note the possible mistakes for correction.
“During this period, people who registered in the first quarter are required to check if their names are spelt correctly and their dates of birth and other information are properly captured.
“This is also the time to identify other irregularities borne out of double registration, capturing of non-Nigerians, among other things,’’ she said.
Okafor also disclosed that the registration would resume immediately after the Easter break, on April 3.
