The Independence National Electoral Commission, INEC, has extended the continuous voter registration exercise until further notice.

National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye Esq, said it is imperative to extend the CVR because “the Commission has consistently reiterated its resolve to continue to provide electoral services to the Nigerian people and register all eligible Nigerians that are interested in registering,” adding that “the Commission has yet again deployed additional machines to areas of pressure and will continue to serve the people of Nigeria.”

A High Court had ordered the electoral umpire in the country to extend the registration. The case at the Federal High Court relating to the terminal date of the CVR came up yesterday Wednesday 29th June 2022, and based on the request of the Commission, the court granted an accelerated hearing and adjourned the matter to Monday 4th July 2022 for hearing of the substantive matter. The Commission will give an update after the court hearing next week.”

Meanwhile, the Commission has given political parties a deadline to submit the personal particulars of the candidates they want to sponsor.

Parties are also directed to “upload the list and personal particulars of their nominated candidates between 1 and 15th July 2022. We urge political parties to scrutinize the list and personal particulars of the candidates they propose to sponsor at the election to avoid any mix-up and duplication of names.

“Political parties are advised not to wait until the last day before uploading the list and personal particulars of their candidates. The candidates nomination portal will shut down at 6 pm on 15th July 2022,” Okoye stated.
