The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has extended the deadline for the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise by two weeks.

The exercise which was supposed to end on August 17th will now last till August 31st.

The extension is coming a few days after TakeItBack Movement, OurMumuDonDo Movement, as well as the Presidential Aspirants Coming Together (PACT) initiative, and concerned Civil Society Organisations, met with officials of INEC to call for an extension of the deadline to enable more Nigerians participate.

Many Nigerians have expressed frustration in getting registered at designated centres.

Eligible voters waiting to register are already lamenting that the pace was too slow, highlighting that it would be a source of discouragement for persons willing to come out and register.

The slow process has been largely blamed on poor network.
