The Independent National Electoral Commission says it is extending the on-going voter registration across the 36 states of the federation.

A Federal High Court in Abuja had earlier stopped INEC from ending voter registration on June 30, 2022.

Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Electoral Matters, Aishatu Dukku, on Wednesday, said, “The Committee held a meeting with INEC yesterday (Tuesday) and they agreed to extend the CVR, all our resolutions were approved,” she told members of the House at plenary on Wednesday.”

The House of Representatives had last Wednesday urged INEC to extend the deadline for the continuous voter registration by an extra 60 days to enable more Nigerians to register to vote in next year’s election.
