Festus Okoye

Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed the physical registration of voters earlier scheduled to commence on July 19, 2020.

INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, yesterday, said that the postponement became necessary due to the forthcoming public holiday.

He said the physical registration of voters would now commence on Monday July 26, 2021.


Okoye explained that the exercise might be affected with the declaration of Tuesday 20, and Wednesday 21, July 2021 as public holidays by the Federal Government.

According to him, online registrants who had scheduled appointments from July 19 to July 23, 2021 would have their appointments rescheduled.

“It is important to emphasise that this continuous voter registration will take place over a period of one year. The commission assures all Nigerians that no citizen eligible to register as a voter will be left behind.”
