INEC ends first quarter CVR


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Tuesday said ongoing Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) for the first quarter in 2018, which began on January 8 had ended.

Mrs Ndidi Okarfor, Head, Voter Education and Publicity at INEC in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that the exercise ended for the quarter on March 22.

According to Okafor, the registration is programme 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 disclosed that the registration would resume immediately after the Easter break, on April 3.
