INEC Approves Resumption Of CVR In Anambra

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has approved the resumption of Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise in Anambra State beginning from Tuesday, January 25, 2022.

 

The Anambra State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr Nkwachukwu Orji, who made the announcement while addressing the media in Awka, said that the resumption of the exercise which was temporarily suspended prior to the Anambra governorship poll in November, 2021, would offer eligible but unregistered voters opportunity to get registered.

 

Dr Orji said that the exercise would also help already registered voters to transfer and or update their registration, adding that voters would also collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) during the period.

 

Outlining the modalities for the exercise, Dr Orji said that the registration, which could be done online or in-person, would take place at the State and local government area offices of the Commission in Anambra State, between nine o’clock in the morning and three o’clock in the afternoon daily, excluding weekends and public holidays.

 

He further warned against registration by proxy, or multiple registration, stressing that while all registration must be done in public space and observed by accredited observers and made it clear that registration is prerequisite for voting in elections.

 

Dr Orji also announced that the Commission is at the verge of completing election reverse logistics for the November 2021 governorship poll in Anambra State, with sustained progress in the renumeration of adhoc staff that worked during the election.

 

The Anambra INEC boss urged the public, and particularly, those that serve as adhoc staff to see the Commission’s property as national asset, and therefore treat them with due care and responsibility.
