Breaking: Voters Registration won’t end June 30, INEC Assures Nigerians
The Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission, Mahmood Yakubu had assured Nigerians that the ongoing continuous voter registration would close to a close on June 30 as earlier announced.
Yakubu disclosed this on Saturday during the Youth Vote Count Mega Concert 2.0 organised by the commission in partnership with Yiaga Africa and funded by the European Union at the old parade ground, Abuja.
Yakubu, who was silent on the duration of the extension, said the commission would decide on the timeframe and communicate the outcome to Nigerians.
He said, “The second thing is you want to know when will this registration end? Is it going to end on the 30th of June in the next five days?
On behalf of INEC, let me assure you, e no go end for 30th June for as long as we have you people trying to register to obtain your Permanent Voter Card, we will continue to register you and we will continue to make sure that you get your PVC.”
Mahmood assured that the commission would deploy more machines to register Nigerians.
“We will not stop the registration until we are satisfied that those who wish to register are given the opportunity to do so.”
While responding to chants of no rigging from the crowd, the INEC chairman said, “For those of you who registered on the INEC Result Viewing Portal, you were seeing the results from the polling units on election day in Ekiti State.
“The Ekiti governorship election was good. Osun is going to be better and 2023 general elections will be the best.
