The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), says no fewer than two million Nigerians have registered for the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise.
INEC made this known in a statement issued by its National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Mr Festus Okoye in Abuja on Monday.
Okoye who disclosed that the number of “new registrants has hit 2,215, 832, as at 7 a.m. of Monday, Aug. 23,” added that the number of Nigerians who had completed their registration in four weeks stood at 430,363.
He advised all eligible citizens who had not registered before to seize the opportunity to do so, stating that those who had already registered as voters need not register again.
“However, those who wish to transfer to another place where they wish to vote in future elections or who have issues with their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) may apply online or in-person for resolution,” he added.
