The House of Representatives, Benjamin Kalu has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to extend the deadline for continuous voter registration (CVR) by 60 days.

This recommendation was raised during the plenary session on Wednesday, after the lawmaker from Abia state, adopted the motion.

Recall that the electoral umpire had fixed the deadline for the suspension of CVR across the country ahead of the 2023 general election for June 30.

Moving his motion, the lawmaker said the extension of the voter registration will enable many eligible Nigerians to get registered.
