Nigeria’s Independent National Electoral Commission plans to resume its Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) in the first quarter of 2021, Acting Chairman, Ahmed Mu’azu said on Tuesday in Abuja.

He made the announcement during the virtual meeting with leadership of political parties at INEC national headquarters in Abuja.

Mu’azu commended the leadership and candidates of political parties for the role they played in ensuring peace during the just-concluded Edo and Ondo governorship elections.

“All efforts including signing and keeping to the letters and the spirit of the peace accord as well as adherence to the commission’s Voters Code of Conduct for elections during the COVID-19 pandemic are fully acknowledged.

On the crisis that ensued over the leadership of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Mua’zu endorsed the Leonard Nzenwa faction, ignoring the observation and protests from the National Chairman of Labour Party (LP), Abdukadir Abdulsalam.
