As the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ended yesterday, after an earlier extension to enable more eligible voters partake in the exercise, the electoral body has insisted that there would be no further shift in the deadline of the process.
The Commission, however, said the exercise would continue after next year’s general elections.
Although, the collection of PVCs continues until one week to next year’s general elections, registered voters who are yet to collect their PVCs should not wait until the deadline draws close, as experienced during the CVR, before they do so, the earlier, the better.
INEC is intensifying efforts to sensitise Nigerians on the need for those who have registered, but yet to collect their PVCs to do so, working in partnership with major stakeholders, including civil society organisations, religious bodies and leadersand the traditional rulers, all registration centres were also making PVCs available for collection.
Nigerians can also check their status on INEC website via http://voterreg.inecnigeria.org and follow the instructions.
