More men have registered in the ongoing Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC’s) Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise, it was learnt.


According to INEC update, of the over 12 million new registrants, 6,856.558 million are male while 5,832,234 are female. 

There are still over seven million PVCs awaiting collection. 

Besides, INEC update also revealed that 998,993 applied for replacement of voter cards, while 640,796 requested for transfer of vote.

The exercise which was to be suspended on the 17th August, 2018 has been extended till the last day of the month.

INEC had argued that the exercise which has been on for the past 16 months was extended due to pleas by Nigerians.

It stated, “However, many Nigerians have appealed to the Commission to extend the exercise. Consequently, the Commission has decided to extend the CVR to 31st August 2018. The exercise will continue in all the designated registration centres every day, including weekends, but excluding public holidays, between 9am and 5pm.”

The commission also informed the general public that the ongoing collection exercise will be on until very close to the general elections.

“The Commission wishes to inform the public that the ongoing collection of PVCs will not end with the CVR exercise. Collection of PVCs will continue until close to the general elections,” it stated. (The Nation)
