INEC unveils portal for voters e-registration

Ahead of the resumption of its Continuous Voter Education next week, the Independent National Electoral Commission has introduced an online portal for registration.

The INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, in an statement released on Tuesday titled “Continuous Voter Registration: Media professionals, INEC agree to sensitise citizens,” said that the online registration will help to reduce the burden of long queues during CVR.

He said, “In the next one week, Monday 28th June 2021, the Commission will resume the Continuous Voter Registration nationwide.

“In doing so, the Commission is introducing a portal to enable eligible Nigerians to commence registration as voters online before completing the exercise physically at designated centres nationwide”.

“This is the first time a major exercise of this nature is handled partially online, consistent with the Commission’s commitment to continue to deepen the use of technology in the electoral process in Nigeria

“Just like the expansion of voter access to Polling Units, the Commission appeals to the media for support so that this novel idea will also be successful.”

While speaking on the duration of the CVR, Yakubu stated that the exercise will last “for at least one year.”

“The success of the exercise depends, to a considerable extent, on citizens’ awareness through voter education. There will be new registrants, requests for intra-state and inter-state transfers as well as the replacement of voters’ cards as provided by law,” he said.

Movie Review: Adedimeji Lateef deserves multiple awards for his role in Ayinla

Ayinla is the last movie project of veteran filmmaker, Tunde Kelani which hit the cinemas few days ago. Produced by Jadesola Osiberu.

As usual, Kemi Filani was amongst the first set of movie lovers to catch a glimpse of Ayinla in order to bring back reports to you guys.

Although, quite a great indigenous movie, Ayinla wouldn't have been this great without the excellent performance of the lead character, Adedimeji Lateef.

Adedimeji Lateef did an excellent job with the character of Ayinla Omowura. He buried his true self and became a new born Ayinla, the hot-headed, promiscuous enigma.

His role in Ayinla would definitely get him an award sooner or later.
