The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has warned Nigerians registering for the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) about a fake website used by scammers, which may also be used to steal the personal information of unsuspecting Nigerians.
This was disclosed by Mr Festus Okoye, INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, in a statement on Friday in Abuja, warning Nigerians about a fake website circulating online for voter registration.
“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,” he said.
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,” he said..
INEC disclosed earlier this week that its Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) had hit 1.6 million signups, adding that 195,591 Nigerians had already completed their CVR registration.
