The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced the commencement of nationwide continuous voters registration exercise.

According to a statement issued by a National Commissioner and Acting Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee, Mrs. Amina Zakari, the exercise will commence on April 27.

Zakari said the exercise will be conducted in all the 774 local government areas of the country on weekdays from Monday to Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

The decision, she said was taken at a special meeting with the Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs), and the Administrative Secretaries from the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The nationwide exercise is to allow those who were unable to register in the last exercise and Nigerians who have turned 18 years the opportunity to register for future elections.

She added that citizens who registered but could not collect their permanent voter card before the 2015 general elections would have the opportunity to collect them.

  1. I never thought I would learn how to trade and make money from it but after coming across Superior Trading System, they have taught me well and I’m proud to say that I am successful in my trades. Google Superior Trading System if you want to learn as well.

  2. It's a step in the right direction. In fact, I keep wondering what INEC staff will be doing on a daily basis now that there's no election. It's a good way of engaging them and preventing the money that might have been wasted in employing adhoc staff.

  3. I hope just hope this year election process go smoothly. No rigging and stealing of ballot box.
