SERAP Asks INEC To Probe Officials Who Collected Bribe For PVC Registration




August 6, (THEWILL) – The Socio-economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to probe its officials who allegedly took bribe from Nigerians during the just concluded Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise.

The CVR exercise which commenced on June 28, 2021, ended on July 30, 2022.

YIAGA Africa, had in a report on June 11, observed bribery of INEC officials as one of the concerns of the voter registration exercise.


“The main challenges observed by Yiaga Africa include malfunctioning of the Voter Enrollment Device (IVED), inadequate registration devices, capacity deficits on the part of INEC registration officials, inconsistencies in the decentralisation of the CVR in some states, low public awareness of the schedule and locations for the rotational CVR and lastly, extortion and bribery of registration officials”, YIAGA stated on its website.

But SERAP in a tweet on Saturday, said report of such development should be investigated and prosecuted if any official is found wanting.

“BREAKING: Voter registration: INEC must promptly and transparently probe reports that its officials took bribes before PVC registration in several centres across the country. Those involved must be named, and brought to justice without delay”, it tweeted.
