The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has suspended the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise in Bauchi State.
This is contained in a statement issued on Monday in Bauchi by INEC’s Head of Voter Education and Publicity in the state, Adamu Gujungu.
Mr Gujungu said the temporary suspension of the exercise would take effect from September 21 to facilitate the display of the preliminary voters’ register.
He said the preliminary voters’ register would be displayed at its headquarters and offices across the 20 local government areas in the state.
“INEC wishes to inform the general public that the display exercise for claims and objections will commence from Friday, Sept. 24 to Thursday, Sept. 30, 2021,” Mr Gujungu said.
According to him, the exercise will enable the registrants to inspect and ensure no mistakes, omissions or additions in their names.
He said this would enable them to make claims for the necessary corrections.
He said registrants can observe other anomalies like registering of foreign nationals, underaged children or inclusion of the names of deceased persons in the register.
