Ondo election: We will not register new voters- INEC

By on July 1, 2020 10 13443 Views

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it has suspended the Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) ahead of the Oct. 10 governorship election in Ondo State.

Mr Rufus Akeju the state Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Resident Electoral Commissioner disclosed this at a news conference in Akure on Wednesday.

Akeju said that INEC has also suspended the issuance of Permanent Voter’s Card (PVCs) until after the poll.

“It is extremely important for me to inform you that the Commission has suspended the CVR.

“And the implication is that the window of opportunity for new registrants to register, distribution of PVCs, transfer of registration and replacement of lost or defaced PVCs has been shut for the meantime owing to the ravaging pandemic.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Section 78(7) of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended) empowers INEC to de-register political parties in carrying our this constitutional responsibility.

“The commission has de-registered Seventy-four (74) political parties and now left with Eighteen (18) subsisting political parties in the political space of the country.

“In accordance with the election timetable released by INEC for the conduct of the gubernatorial election in Ondo State, the conduct of the political party primaries shall take place between July 2 and July 25.

“Pursuant to the above, and also as political activities begin to gather momentum in the state, I hereby admonish the political actors and gladiators to live up to expectations.

“Play the game according to the dictate of the extant laws, regulations and guidelines of their political parties to promote democratic values,” he said.

Akeju revealed that the number of registered voters was 1,822,346, while the number of PVCs collected was 1,478,460, while 372, 888 PVCs were uncollected.

He also revealed that in compliance with Section 30(1) and in conformity with the scheduled time table, the electoral body had posted the notice of election on July 1 as required by law.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on various websites for about a year and
    am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer
    all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
