The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is set to open its registration portal on June 28 for online voter registration, a National Commissioner, Mr. Festus Okoye said. Okoye said this while addressing the press in Dutse, Jigawa State, saying that “The INEC Voter Registration Portal will be deployed to enable people register online and thereafter go to their respective state or local government office of the commission to capture their biometrics and facials.”
“Those that want to transfer their registration from one place to another can also make use of the online portal.
“Those that have prior issues of accreditation and with damaged or defaced PVC’s can also use the online portal to rectify the challenge,” the INEC Chairman added.
Okoye further urged stakeholders including civil society groups to carry out voter registration education, adding that the INEC Chairman Prof. Mahmood Yakubu will soon announce the date and time for the commencement of physical voter registration after consultations with stakeholders.
