As the Independent National Electoral Commission had fixed the first quarter of this year for the resumption of the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise.



However, speaking at a validation workshop for INEC voter education manual in Lokoja, Kogi State, yesterday, the commission’s spokesman, Festus Okoye, said the electoral body would not “impose or accept the imposition of extraneous registration requirements not in tandem with the constitution and the law.”

According to him, the electoral body would resume the continuous voter’s registration exercise as soon as the expansion of access to polling units is completed.

He noted that based on the new arrangement, new and some old registrants would have new, accessible and closer polling units, adding that all polling units would have a lower threshold of 750 voters and an upper threshold of 1000.

“It is pertinent to explain here that no voting point will be moved from one local government to another. It is also important to underscore the fact that the expansion of polling units will not confer any advantage on any state other than decongesting existing polling units, degrading overcrowding, aiding increase of voter turnout and improving the quality of legal services rendered by the commission. The primary objective of this is to make voting experience more pleasant and less tedious for Nigerians”, he stated.
