    Reps urge INEC to extend voter registration by 60 days

    The House of Representatives has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC), to extend the voter registration by 60 days.The Nrws Agency of Nigeria reports that the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise is scheduled to end on June 30.This followed the adoption of a motion by Rep. Benjamin Kalu, (APC-Abia), during plenary on Wednesday in Abuja.The House urged INEC to extend the voters registration deadline by an extra 60 days from June 30, 2022, to enable as many Nigerians as possible to register.Kalu noted that the ongoing Continuous Voters Registration, (CVR), by INEC was scheduled to end on June 30th ahead of the 2023 General Elections.He said that the decision to suspend the voters’ registration was in line with the provisions of the Electoral Act, 2022, which required INEC to suspend voters’ registration at least 60 days before an election.He said that in April, INEC declared that about 42 per cent of the voter registrations recorded since the commencement of CVR on 28 June, 2021, were invalid with about 20 million unclaimed Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs)Kalu also said that the large number of unregistered eligible voters, willing to be registered as evidenced by crowd seen at various registration centres, had resulted in congestion.He expressed concern due to reports of shortages of voter registration machines, inadequate manpower and personnel at registration centres.According to him, this may lead to frustration among prospective registrants, and in some cases, unrest at some registration centres.He said that the right to vote was critically important to the health and legitimacy of the country’s democracy, as well as electoral integrity.Kalu stated that if nothing was done to improve the shortage of voter registration equipment, and extend the deadline for voters registration, millions of Nigerians would be disenfranchised, which would jeopardise the integrity of the 2023 general elections.The house, therefore mandated the Committee on Electoral Matters to engage INEC in order to examine and proffer solutions to the shortage of registration machines and manpower.He added that INEC should also deploy an additional 30 voters registration machines in each local government area, train and deploy ad-hoc staff to improve the shortage of manpower at registration centres.He added that security should also be provided for the ad hoc staff and report back within two weeks.

    Group charges INEC to extend June 30 deadline for voter registration

    A group, the Joint Action for Good Governance, on Tuesday in Lagos called on INEC to extend the on-going nationwide Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) beyond the stipulated June 30.

    It also asked INEC to ensure ease of registration preparatory to the 2023 general elections and beyond.

    The National Vice-President of the group, Mr Abdulwaheed Odunuga, made the appeals in a statement.

    He noted that voter registration across “has been impeded by bureaucratic bottlenecks, inadequate manpower and equipment in INEC offices’’.

    Odunuga, the candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in Kosofe Federal Constituency in Lagos State noted also that the challenges were impediments to seamless voter registration.

    “They have led to delays and restiveness in citizens waiting to register in long queues.

    “Many Nigerians will be discouraged and disenfranchised if the exercise proceeds in a complicated manner.

    “In addition, INEC is yet to cover many of the rural communities in this process thereby disenfranchising citizens who may be far away from the INEC offices,’’ he stated.

    INEC ‘s Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, said in Lagos on Saturday that it would soon make its stand known on calls for the extension of the June 30 deadline.

    He made the declaration when he addressed youths in Lagos State at a musical concert on “Youth Votes Count’’.

    The concert was organised by INEC in collaboration with some partners to awaken youths’ consciousness at participating in politics and in governance.

    Yakubu said INEC had deployed more voter enrolment machines to register potential voters all over Lagos State.
