INEC Alerts Nigerians Of Fake Online Registration Portal
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has raised alarm about the existence of a fake online site urging Nigerians to enrol for “voter card PVC” registration for the 2023 general elections.
This comes barely 24 hours after INEC announced the suspension of voter registration across the country.
The fake online portal claimed that the Federal Government has approved PVC registration online to avoid the unnecessary crowd in the “NIMC”.
INEC warned that the site is not linked to the Commission and the link/portal is spurious and from a dubious source.
The Commission said INEC is the only body constitutionally and legally mandated to conduct the registration of persons qualified to vote in any election in Nigeria and to update and revise the register when the need arises.
It reiterated that the Commission is solely responsible for organizing, undertaking, and supervising national elections in the country and does not share this responsibility with anybody or organization.
The Commission said it has concluded the Continuous Voter Registration exercise nationwide and does not need to open an additional site or portal for the purposes of registration of voters.
