80m voters may be registered by 2019 – INEC

A statement has been issued on Sunday by Mr Rotimi Oyekanmi, who’s the Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman in Abuja, noted that the roundtable was also attended by Civil Society Organisations and other stakeholders.

Yakubu speaking on the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) said that no fewer than 3.2 million Nigerians had been registered in addition to the 70 million registered voters for the 2015 general elections.

He said, every fair election seriously depends on the credibility and authenticity of the voter register. We are now doing it continuously. We have seen some challenges and we are responding to them.

We commenced in the month of April and just last week, over 3.2 million citizens have so far been registered adding to the 70 million registered voters for the 2015 general elections that we had before.

“Our projection is that the Voter Register will probably be over 80 million by 2019,” Yakubu said.

He also revealed that about eight million Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) were yet to be collected by their respective owners.

“We haven’t made much progress in the last two years, but we have made elaborate arrangements with the states to ensure that the cards are collected.”
