The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says the August 17 deadline for the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) will not be extended.
The Commission said the exercise would resume after the 2019 General Elections scheduled from Feb. 26 and March 2.
Public Affairs Officer of INEC in Gombe, Mr Mohorret Bigun said, on Wednesday, that the exercise would henceforth include weekends and public holidays to allow for more people to register beginning from August 1.
He said INEC was not planning to extend the exercise beyond August 17 as being anticipated in some quarters.
“ There will be no extension of ongoing registration beyond the August 17 deadline. Those who are anticipating extension should go and register.
“From August 1, we are going to operate from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Sunday. This is to give room for those who are yet to turn up for the exercise.
