The Independent National Electoral Commission says the August 17 deadline for the Continuous Voter Registration  will not be extended.

The commission said the exercise would resume after the 2019 General Elections scheduled from February 26 and March 2.



Mr Mohorret Bigun, Public Affairs Officer of INEC in Gombe told the News Agency of Nigeria  on Wednesday that the exercise
would henceforth include weekends and public holidays to allow for more people to register beginning from August 1.

“From August 1, we are going to operate from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Sunday. This is to give room for those who are yet to turn up
for the exercise.

“We have been directed to suspend the registration of voters until the 2019 general elections are concluded,’’ Bigun said.

He said the commission decided to suspend the exercise till next year to enable it to produce the Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs)
for distribution.

“The commission would not want to deny anyone the right to vote; hence the need to suspend the exercise temporarily to prepare
for the general elections in 2019.’’

According to him, 141,345 persons, comprising 55,407 (39 per cent) females and 85,947 (61 per cent) males have so far registered
as at July 30.

He appealed to those who were yet to register to take advantage of the adjustment in the timetable.
