Meanwhile, INEC says it will give effect to the ruling of the Federal High Court on the Continuous Voter Registration, CVR.

INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman of Information and Voter
Education Committee, Festus Okoye, said this on Monday.

Although he did not specifically state whether or not the electoral
umpire would go ahead with its initial plan to stop the exercise, the
INEC official said the commission would continue to obey the orders of
the court.

Despite the decision to give effect to the order of the court, Okoye
insisted that INEC would convince the court on the adjourned date on
why the exercise should be discontinued for now.

Okoye reiterated that the exercise was meant for only those who have
not registered before and who have attained the again of 18 and above.
