The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has cautioned Nigerians over a fake Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) portal in circulation.
INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee (IVEC), Festus Okoye, gave the warning on Friday in Abuja.
TheFact Nigeria recalled that the electoral body commenced online registration exercise on 28 June 2021.
He said the fake portal was not from the commission as it did not accredit any agency organization to capture details of intending voters on its behalf.
According to Okoye, ”The attention of the commission has been drawn to a post, which is currently being circulated on the social media, about a website for INEC voter registration which is different from the INEC CVR Portal.
He said that the INEC CVR online portal remains https://cvr.inecnigeria.org.
“The address of the fake portal is https://register.inec-pvc.online/ with shortened URL as https://bit.ly/INEC-PvcReg2021.
“INEC wishes to totally disassociate itself from this website and any activity carried out on it.
“The Commission states that it has not accredited any agency or organization to capture details of intending voters on its behalf”, he said.
