The House of Representatives has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC) to extend the June 30, 2022 deadline for voter registration so as to enable more eligible Nigerians to register, get their Permanent Voter Cards and participate in the 2023 general elections.

The House mandated its Committee on Electoral Matters to engage with INEC to “examine and proffer solutions to the shortage of registration machines and manpower.”

The engagement is to also see to the deployment of additional 30 voter registration machines in each of the 774 local government areas, train and deploy ad hoc staff to improve the shortage of manpower at registration centres and provide security for ad hoc staff members.

A member of the House, Benjamin Kalu, had at the plenary on Wednesday moved a motion titled, ‘Need for INEC to extend the deadline of continuous voters’ registration, deploy additional staff and voters registration machines across the country.’
