The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday announced that the continuous voters registration CVR will recommence on Monday 28th June 2021.

This was made known by the INEC chairman Professor Mahmood Yakubu, in a press conference held at the press briefing held at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
