According to him, the exercise is holding in the 21 local government areas of the state from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays to Fridays, excluding public holidays at the designated centres.
Nkedife advised community leaders to visit INEC local government offices to find out when its floating centre would visit their wards for registration and mobilise their people.
He urged eligible persons who had not registered and those who had just clocked 18 years to visit INEC centres to get registered.
He further advised those who had their PVCs and those whose cards were defaced or with incorrect spellings to visit INEC offices nearest to them for corrections.

He advised electorate who had not collected their PVCs to visit the various INEC offices and collect their cards.
