The acting Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Air Vice Marshal Ahmed Mu’azu (rtd), has said that the commission plans to resume its Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) in the first quarter of 2021.

Mu’azu said this on Tuesday in Abuja at the commission’s quarterly meeting with political parties where he solicited for their collaboration and support for a successful take-off of the exercise.

According to him, the meeting was also to consult with the political parties on the 15 by-elections in 11 states earlier scheduled for Oct. 31 but later suspended due to the insecurity and other challenges in the country, especially where the elections were scheduled to be held.

Speaking on behalf of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), the National Chairman of African Action Congress (AAC), Mr Leonard Nzenwa, lamented the destruction of the commission’s critical assets during the #EndSARS protest, leading to the postponement of the by-elections.

He commended President Muhammadu Buhari for re-appointing Prof. Mahmood Yakubu as INEC chairman, saying it was for the continuity of innovations and improvement of the country’s electoral system.
