As the 2023 general elections draw near, Caritas Nigeria (through her Good Governance program) and in collaboration with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), implemented a one-week continuous voters registration (CVR) exercise in two locations in Abuja aimed at bringing voter registration to the grassroots.
The registration centres were in Durumi at the Medical Laboratory Science of Nigeria Headquarters (MLSC), and Immigration office at Tafawa Balewa road, Garki, Abuja. The exercise began on the 12th of May and ended 18th of May, 2022.
The two CVR centres were created to give eligible Nigerians the opportunity to either: register as first time voters; apply for replacement of damaged voter's card; or to change voting centre from one location to another. Proximity to polling units and the retriction of movement on election days were also put into consideration in approving the registration centre.
