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)
“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.

Abiy Ahmed wins the 2019 Nobel Peace Award
Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.
Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.
“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”
It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”
The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
