The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday said it had extended the on-going continuous voters’ registration exercise to weekends and public holidays in Anambra.
Mr Leo Kedife, Head of INEC office in Anambra, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka that the extension was to enable more eligible voters to register.
“INEC has from Aug. 1 to Aug. 17, 2018 extended the registration exercise to Saturday and Sunday and public holidays, if any, and the time will now be from 9.a.m to 5. p.m daily,’’ he said.
