The acting Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Ahmed Mu’azu, on Tuesday in Abuja said the commission was planning to resume its Continuous Voter Registration in the first quarter of 2021.
Mu’azu stated this during the quarterly meeting of INEC with political parties where he solicited the latter’s support for the successful take-off of the exercise.
According to him, the meeting was also to consult with the political parties on the 15 bye-elections in 11 states, which were suspended because of the security situation in the country.
Mu’azu commended the leadership and candidates of political parties for the role they played in ensuring peace during the just-concluded Edo and Ondo governorship elections.
He said, “All efforts, including signing and keeping to the letters and the spirit of the peace accord as well as adherence to the commission’s Voters Code of Conduct for elections during the COVID-19 pandemic, are fully acknowledged.
