The ongoing continuous voter registration (CVR) exercise was initially slated to end at the end of June 2022.
Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Electoral Matters, Hon. Aishatu Jibril Dukku disclosed this while briefing fellow lawmakers on the committee’s efforts to ensure the implementation of a House resolution reached last week.
