2019 Election: INEC ends voters’ registration Aug 17

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said on Friday that it would suspend the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) on August 17 until after the 2019 general elections.
The commission disclosed this in a statement issued by Prince Solomon Soyebi, National Commissioner and Chairman, information and Voter Education Committee, in Abuja.

Soyebi, however, said that the collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) would continue until a week to the commencement of general elections, February 16, 2019.

The decision, according to him, was taken following consultative meetings the commission had with major stakeholders in the electoral process.

INEC had within the week met with leaders of Political Parties, the media, Civil Society Organisations and Security Agencies.

He said that the stakeholders stressed the need to comply with statutory timelines and unanimously agreed that sufficient time be given between the capture of data, its processing and the production of the PVCs.

“Given the activities necessary for this, the commission, acting on the recommendation of the stakeholders has decided to suspend the ongoing CVR at 3p.m on Friday, August 17, until after the general elections.

“The collection of PVCs will, however, continue until a week to the commencement of general elections on February 16, 2019,” he added.

He said that the Commission would overhaul and intensify its publicity initiatives to ensure that all qualified Nigerians who wish to register were able to do so and collect their PVCs before the general elections.
