INEC Dismisses Online Voter Registration Says CVR Exercise Has Ended

Moses Ofodeme

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has dismissed an online site which is currently urging Nigerians to enroll for “VOTER CARD (PVC)” registration.

The site emerged barely 24 hours after the suspension of voter registration,

claiming that the Federal Government has approved individual VOTER CARD (PVC) registration online to avoid unnecessary crowd in the “NIMC” CENTERS.

The Commission states unequivocally that the site is not linked to the Commission and the link/portal is spurious and from a dubious source.

In a statement, INEC, said the Commission is the only body constitutionally and legally mandated to conduct the registration of persons qualified to vote in any election in Nigeria and to update and revise the register when the need arises.

The Commission is solely responsible for organizing, undertaking, and supervising national elections in the country and does not share this responsibility with anybody or organization.

It therefore strongly advised the public not to succumb to the antics of online scammers and should avoid such fake sites.

“The Commission has concluded the Continuous Voter Registration exercise nationwide and does not need to open an additional site or portal for the purposes of registration of voters.” INEC said.
