CVR: INEC better positioned using techs – Yakubu

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that new technology introduced into the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) has positioned the commission to better deliver on its mandate.

INEC’s Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, said this Friday in Abuja, when he led a delegation of the National Elections Commission of Liberia to the CVR physical registration centre at FCT headquarters of INEC.

According to him, compared to experiences from previous CVR exercises, the commission had been able to eliminate the crowd at CVR centres with the new technology.

“As you can see, the queue has disappeared and we are able to serve Nigerians better for that reason,” Yakubu said.

He assured that INEC would continue to do this until the end of the exercise on June 30, 2022, when it would suspend the process to enable the commission compile the voters’ register ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The Chairperson of National Elections Commission of Liberia (NEC), Davidetta Lansanah, commended the leadership of INEC for sharing Nigeria’s experience with them.

She said that the experience learned during the study tour would help Liberia in adopting the CVR in their country.
