The nearest gubernatorial election in Osun state, which is probably like a year from now might have been the tenable reason for the state to have been leading widely in the ongoing voter registration across the country, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said it received 542,576 online applications in the first two weeks of the resumption of its Continuous Voter Registration (CVR), which commenced on June 28, 2020.



INEC chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, made the announcement at a meeting with Resident Electoral Commissioners (REC), yesterday, in Abuja.

According to Yakubu, 456,909 were fresh registrants while 85,667 applied for voter transfer, replacement of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), update of voter information record, among others.
