Continuous Voter Registration Commences in 25 More Centres Within Lagos

The National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in charge of Ogun, Ondo and Lagos State, Adekunle Ogunmola, on Monday flagged-off operations in the 25 additional centres approved for Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) in Lagos State.

He stated that the creation of the operational centres is an indication that the commission is responsible.

While adding that the additional centres were created in response to the request made by stakeholders that the CVR should be decentralised, the INEC Commissioner who inspected three of the centres at Oke-Meta Primary School in Somolu, Ijero Girls’ Junior High School, Lagos Mainland and Akanji Primary School, Surulere, insisted that he was satisfied with the facilities presently put in place.

According to him, “We are trying to ascertain the level of our preparedness in our newly created centres in Lagos. In Lagos state, we have been given 25 additional centres.

“We want to know whether people are sensitised enough and we saw that people have started registering at the new centres already.

“Eligible voters should come out and register to be able to fulfil their civic responsibility.

“The exercise is a continuous thing, unlike the previous one that would run for few weeks and end.

“This exercise will run until third quarter of 2018. People have about one and half years to register.

“The commission will do everything humanly possible to deliver on its mandate to Nigerians without letting the nation down.”
