The National Commissioner Festus Okoye, while speaking on Channel Television’s Politics today said, “INEC is disposed towards extending voter registration. An extension is inevitable. But not up to the period that some people are canvassing.”

“But we are convinced, given the enthusiasm of Nigerians, given the new resolve of Nigerians to register, that an extension is inevitable.”
