The Electoral Commission (EC) will for the second time reopen the voters’ registration exercise on Thursday, October 1, 2020.
It comes amid criticisms about the initial exercise which ended last month as it currently undertakes the exhibition of the electoral album.
The EC on Thursday held talks with political parties after the opposition National Democratic Congress questioned the credibility of the new electoral roll following the detection of a number of anomalies.
According to a statement released by the Commission, the one-day event will “give the opportunity to those who have attained the age of Eighteen (18) and Citizens who for one reason or the other were not able to register in the just ended Registration Exercise.”
The EC provisionally registered about 16 million people at the end of the biometric voters’ registration exercise which ended on August 9, 2020.
The registration will take place in the district offices of the Electoral Commission across the country from 7 am to 6pm.
