Mr Festus Okoye, the National Commissioner for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says the electoral body will begin online voter registration on June 28.
The Commissioner made the disclosure while briefing newsmen on the preparations for the Gwaram bye-election in Dutse on Friday.
He said the registration will be conducted via the INEC registration portal.
According to him, “the INEC Voter Registration Portal will be deployed to enable people register online and thereafter go to their respective state or local government office of the commission to capture their biometrics and facials.
“Those that want to transfer their registration from one place to another can also make use of the online portal.
“Those that have prior issues of accreditation and with damaged or defaced PVC’s can also use the online portal to rectify the challenge.”
Okoye also said that the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, would announce the time for the commencement of the physical registration at the end of the consultation with critical stakeholders.
The electoral boss charged civil society groups and the media to assist in educating Nigerians on the import of online voter registration.
