The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will resume the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) in Zamfara State on March 8.

The state’s Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Prof. Sa’idu Ahmad, stated this at a stakeholders’ meeting organised by the commission on Thursday in Gusau, the state capital.

He said the resumption of the exercise followed the restoration of law and order in most parts of the state.

The REC said: “INEC headquarters has approved our plans to resume the exercise in all local government area (LGA) offices of the state on March 8.

“We are to rotate the ward/Residential Areas (RAs) at the LGAs, to give opportunity for intending registrants and to reduce crowd.

“We are glad that stakeholders, such as Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC), NGOs, traditional and religious leaders as well as the Media, are sensitizing residents to register and obtain their PVCs ahead of the 2023 polls.”

He said the CVR was for citizens who turned 18 years after the last exercise and those who for one reason or the other could not register at the previous exercises.
