The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has dismissed the rumors circulating that the deadline for the voters registration will be on the January 31, 2018.

The commission, in a tweet, described the information as false and misleading.

The tweet read, "Rumours have been going round on different platforms that the Commission will be ending the CVR on 31/01/18. This information is false & misleading.

"The exercise is ongoing and will continue until the Commission announces a suspension much later in the year in accordance to the law."
