Port Harcourt Residents Lament Inability To Register To Vote

With just a few days to go, some residents in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, south-south, Nigeria, have lamented their inability to register and obtain their permanent voters cards, PVC, at the various Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, offices across the  city.

They are however, calling on the commission to provide more machines to facilitate the process as well as a further extension of the closing date of the exercise to accommodate eligible Nigerians.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had with a view to allowing more eligible Nigerians to participate in the continuous voters registration exercise, granted the request of various groups that called for the extension of the exercise by two weeks, from 17th to 31st or august 2018.

With just a few days before the deadline, most Nigerians have besieged INEC offices to register but not without excuses and challenges.

They called on INEC to avail them the opportunity to register to enable them participate in the forthcoming general elections.

In the same vein, some others urged Nigerians to learn to obey rules and regulations.

If the crowd at the various INEC registration centres is anything to go by and going by their complaints, then many eligible Nigerians might not vote in the 2019 general elections if nothing is done to hasten the processes of registration.
