EKITI VOTE BUYING: It’s not our job to arrest suspects, but we can prosecute —INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Tuesday registered 23 additional political parties.

This brings the total number of parties in the country to 91.

In a notice on Tuesday, the commission invited chairmen and secretaries of the parties to collect their certificates at its headquarters in Abuja on Thursday.

In a related development, INEC also extended the ongoing continuous voter registration (CVR) exercise by two weeks, reversing its earlier decision to suspend the exercise on August 17 until after the 2019 general election.
