ENUGU—THE Independent National Electoral commission, INEC, Wednesday, embarked on a roadshow along Enugu streets to shore up the very last voters as the Continuous Voters Registration, CVR, ends.
INEC staff carried banners encouraging prospective voters to scamper for the last minute voters registration before February 2019 elections.
Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Mr. Emeka Ononamadu said the dying minutes sensitisation was important because some people may not appreciate of the seriousness of voters registration.
“So we are still taking the message back to them. Those who have not registered should come out and do that now before the 2019 elections.
“We are equally educating them that double registration is an offence and they should not commit it because some people see it as an identity card that they can acquire another anytime they lose the other but it shouldn’t be so.
“There is no ward we will not touch before the end of the registration. We have gone round each of the 260 wards of Enugu state four times and having gone that round, people knew we are serious,” Ononamadu said.
The REC stated that INEC was ending the Continuous Voters Registration to enable it process the PVCs already registered that will be used for the 2019 elections.
He stressed that collection of the Permanent Voters Cards, PVCs, will continue at different INEC offices till February next year and advised all registrants to collect their cards for the all-important elections.
