Peter Obi seeks extension of voter registration
The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to extend the voter registration.
Obi made the call on his Twitter handle on Thursday, pointing out that voter registration across the country, especially in the South East, had been impeded by bureaucratic bottlenecks.
INEC had earlier extended the deadline for online registration for new PVCs from May 31, 2022, to June 30, 2022. .
Obi said, “Information reaching me indicate that voter registration across Nigeria, more so in the South East, is dogged by inertia & bureaucratic bottlenecks. I respectfully call on [INEC] to facilitate speedy registration of Nigerians to enable them [to] exercise their voting rights.”
