“INEC should extend the registration period for voters. Those who embellish the story to make it appear that the mass registration represents a complete uprising against the ruling party are in fantasy land.

The main opposition, the ruling party, and the others would compete for the new voters, he predicted.

Remember that on Wednesday, INEC informed the House of Representatives that it might use more equipment and ad hoc staff in response to the House of Representatives’ request to extend the voter registration deadline?
