There has been a last minute rush by eligible voters in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital to register in the continuous voter registration (CVR) which ended on Sunday.
The scramble for the registration which began last week, reached its peak on Sunday afternoon as eligible voters thronged designated registration centres of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to beat the deadline.
The state INEC resident electoral commissioner, Niyi Ijanaye told a Rockcity FM correspondent Busola Adegbite at the INEC state headquarters in Abeokuta, that all those who showed up for either registration or other complaints will be attended to.
According to him, all the designated registration centers in the state, especially Abeokuta, have been visited by a large crowd of eligible voters since the voter registration deadline was shifted to July 31.
Ijanaye says that since last Tuesday, each of the registration centers in Abeokuta, had been receiving an average of about 200 persons daily, but only 150 of them were attended to.
As at 12 pm on Sunday, more than 400 people visited each of the registration centers.
They include who came for registration, polling units transfer, change of information on their Permanent Voter Card (PVC), as well as those who lost their PVC.
