The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has agreed to prolong the ongoing Continuous Voters’ Registration (CVR) exercise by 60 days.
It was gathered that registration was initially slated to end on June 30, 2022, but calls to extend the CVR exercise came from Nigerians yet to register.
Recall that on Wednesday, June 15, the House of Representatives urged the Independent National Electoral Commission to extend the June 30, 2022, deadline.
