The commissioner said “the exercise is going on smoothly in all the areas I visited; so far, so good.

“We have however observed some negligible lapses which were not in anyway hampering the smooth conduct of the exercise.

“They include challenges of epileptic power supply which had been taken care of with the provision of stand by generators.

“Other challenges include botched teenage and multiple registrations, among others, which had since been tackled.”

Zakari restated the commitment of the commission to register all eligible voters in the three states, saying nobody would be disenfranchised.

The national commissioner added that CVR would continue up until 60 days to the 2019 general elections.
