It’s official, you can still register for your Permanent Voter’s Card as INEC finally heeds the call of Nigerians and extends the deadline for registration. Although this extension had been hinted at over the past few days, the commission’s spokesperson, Festus Okoye, finally confirmed the postponement of the deadline today, July 1st.
“The Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) will continue nationwide, and all the Resident Electoral Commissioners and Electoral Officers have been directed to continue with the exercise pending further directives from the Commission.
“The Commission has consistently reiterated its resolve to continue to provide electoral services to the Nigerian people and register all eligible Nigerians that are interested in registering. The Commission has yet again deployed additional machines to areas of pressure and will continue to serve the people of Nigeria,” Okoye said.
