The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) warned Nigerians not to fall victims to fake websites advertising voter registration.
In a statement signed by National Commissioner, Festus Okoye, INEC said it has concluded its Continuous Voter Registration exercise for the 2023 general elections.
According to INEC, the Commission has concluded the Continuous Voter Registration exercise nationwide and does not need to open an additional site or portal for the purposes of registration of voters.
The statement said that barely 24 hours after the suspension of voter registration, the attention of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was drawn to an online site urging Nigerians to enroll for ‘VOTER CARD (PVC)’ registration claiming that the Federal Government has approved individual VOTER CARD (PVC) registration online to avoid unnecessary crowd in the ‘NIMC’ CENTERS.
The Independent National Electoral Commission said it is the only body constitutionally and legally mandated to conduct the registration of persons qualified to vote in any election in Nigeria and to update and revise the register when the need arises.
