A Labor Party presidential candidate has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to extend the voter registration process nationwide as the deadline for registering to sit down to vote.
Obi made the call via his Twitter account on Thursday saying voter registration across the country, especially in the South East, was hampered by obstacles.
Earlier INEC had extended the online registration deadline for new PVCs from 31 May 2022, to June 30, 2022. However, the election referee has set a deadline for all registrations by 30 June.
A former president of the Peoples Democratic Party has called on INEC to speed up the registration of voters so that they can exercise their constitutional rights.
“The information I have received indicates that voter registration throughout Nigeria, especially in the South East, has been fueled by corruption and bureaucratic issues. I respectfully request [INEC] to facilitate the registration of Nigerians so that they can [exercise] their voting rights, ”Obi wrote.
As the 2023 national election approaches, many Nigerians have complained about the difficulty of getting their PVCs within the time provided by INEC.
