INEC the Deadline for voters registration remains June 30, online reports claimed that the deadline had been extended prompting celebration in some quarters.

Contrary to conjecture that the deadline for the ongoing registration of voters card has been extended to August 31, 2022, the deadline remains June 30.

The following clamour for an extension of the deadline due to an increase in the number of potential registrants and the attendant logistics hitches, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), last week, said an extension might be considered.

On Monday, June 13, 2022, online reports claimed the deadline had been extended prompting celebration in some quarters. Asked if was true the deadline has been extended to August 31, 2022,  Mr Rotimi Oyekanmi, Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, said: “No. It is not true. The deadline for the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) is still 30th June. The online pre-registration service closed since 30th May.

“What the Commission has done to respond to the increase in numbers of those who want to register, is to deploy more INEC Voter Enrollment Devices (IVEDs) to areas where the pressure is highest.”
