This was disclosed by Hon. Aishatu Jibril Dukku, Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Electoral Matters during plenary on Wednesday.
She said this was part of the committee’s efforts to ensure that the information reached by the house last week was implemented.
“The Committee held a meeting with INEC yesterday (Tuesday) and they agreed to extend the CVR, all our resolutions were approved,” she said.
Recall that INEC had been urged by the House of Representatives to extend the deadline for the continuous voter registration by an extra 60 days from June 30, 2022, to enable more Nigerians to register.
The national voting body was also advised by the house to deploy additional staff and voter registration machines across the country to meet the objective.
