The Electoral Commission (EC) has announced that it will not undertake the voters registration exercise on Friday, July 31, 2020.

The EC, however, indicated in a press statement that the voters registration exercise wil resume on Saturday, August 1.

“The public is hereby informed that the Commission will not undertake the Voters Registration Exercise on Friday the 31st of July, 2020.”

“The Voters Registration Exercise will resume on Saturday the 1st of August to Thursday the 6th of August, 2020. The Commission apologises for any inconvenience caused by its earlier release,” the statement read.

Reports indicate that the EC took this decision due to the fact that Muslims in the country will be observing the Eid-al-Adha celebration on July 31, which has already been declared a public holiday by the government.

The EC also informed that the final phase of the voters registration exercise will take place from August 1-6, 2020.
