4 “There were issues in the said CVR centre but  orderliness was  restored and the exercise continued  smoothly.

5 “We have moved the registration in that centre  to another polling unit in the area,  and our officials have continued with the registration.

6 “People should be patient.

7 We shall register as many  people as possible.

8 If people continue to disrupt the process, the opportunity to register more people before the deadline will be interrupted.

9 “Our commitment is to register as many people as possible and we will try to do so within the limited time,” the INEC spokesperson said.

10 Oriowo, who frowned at the last minute rush by many applicants, said the exercise had been on since June 2021 and many people did not take the advantage but waited till the deadline.

11 “As it is, INEC started this process over a year ago.

12 The surge we are experiencing in the last few weeks is expected, but people should as well be patient.

13 “The commission will do everything possible to register as many people as possible.

14 We will try as much as possible to capture everybody,” she added.

15 Oriowo said that INEC had also been monitoring the CVR processes in the state.

16 NAN recalls  that the CVR which commenced in June 2021 would be concluded on July 31, ahead of the 2023 general elections.
