INEC begins CVR despite call for cancellation


By Ozioruva Aliu

BENIN CITY—DESPITE call by the All Progressives Congress, APC, for its cancellation, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, yesterday, commenced the Continuous Voter Registration, CVR, exercise in Edo State.

The exercise is meant to capture would-be voters who are to yet register or those who want to transfer their votes ahead of the September 21 governorship election.

Edo State APC Chairman, Emperor Tenebe, had, in a statement, urged the INEC to cancel the exercise, due to the damage to its secretariat, materials and equipment meant for the registration.

The exercise, monitored in Oredo, Egor and Ikpoba-Okha local governments, showed that PVC collection was also on-going side by side with the continuous voter registration exercise.
