The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has warned of a fake online registration portal for Continuous Voter Registration (CVR).

Festus Okoye, INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, gave the warning in Abuja on Friday.

Mr Okoye said that INEC’s attention had been drawn to a post, which is currently being circulated on the social media, about a website for INEC voter registration.

He said the fake portal is completely different from the INEC CVR Portal.

“The address of the fake portal is https://register.inec-pvc.online/ with shortened URL as https://bit.ly/INEC-PvcReg2021,” stated Mr Okoye.

“INEC wishes to totally disassociate itself from this website and any activity carried out on it.”

Mr Okoye said that INEC had not accredited any agency or organisation to capture details of intending voters on its behalf.

“The general public is hereby informed that the INEC continuous voter registration online portal remains https://cvr.inecnigeria.org,” said the commissioner.
