As the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC ends the Continuous Voters Registration, CVR on Sunday, July 31, aggrieved Nigerians who were unable to get captured have called on the electoral body to extend the exercise.

 

TORI reports that several registration centers were flooded by anxious Nigerians on Sunday to beat the deadline which was issued by the electoral body on June 25.

Recall that INEC had extended the exercise from June 30 to July 31 2022, to enable eligible Nigerians to apply for the Permanent Voter’s Card ahead of the 2023 general elections.

However, despite the extension of the service to churches and other places in a bid to aid the registration, many Nigerians are yet to get registered.

Whe Dailypost visited some centers in Abuja on Sunday, intending voters were raging in anger, alleging that there are plots to disenfranchise some Nigerians.

One of the angered PVC applicants, Mr Ojo K.T, who spoke in Kubwa CVR centre, said he had been trying to register since Monday.

He said, “I think they just don’t want us to vote. Look at the people that are going to be denied the opportunity to participate in the election. What is wrong in this country?

“If you look around, you will notice that most of us here that have been here since 3am this morning are youths. They are afraid of the revolution that is coming and that is why they are deliberately pushing us away”.

According to him, the only language the President Mummadu Buhari’s government understands is protest, saying “we must hit the street to demand the extension of the exercise. It is our right to vote and nobody should violate that right”.
