The continuous voter registration (CVR) exercise will be spotlighted in the latest edition of #ThursdayTalks, a monthly conversation on national issues.


The virtual conference, powered by BudgIT and EIE Nigeria, is billed to hold via Instagram live on July 27 by 5:30 pm.

“Occupy Your #OfficeOfTheCitizen: Make We Talk Election Mata!” will be the theme for this month’s talk.

In a statement shared with TheCable, EIE Nigeria said the talk would suggest solutions to hindrances encountered during the CVR process while also touching on voters’ participation in the recently concluded LG elections in Lagos and Ogun states.


“This month’s edition will beam a spotlight on the ongoing Continuous Voters Registration (CVR) exercise and the role of citizens in governance,” the statement read.

“It is aimed at sensitising Nigerians on the exercise and proffering solutions to the challenges encountered during the registration process. We will also talk about Saturday’s local government elections in Lagos & Ogun.”

Speakers and panellists for the event include Festus Okoye, national commissioner and the chairman of information and voter education committee at INEC; Tari Taylaur, Youth Party councillorship candidate; Demilade Robert, photographer and active citizen; Munirat Lecky, media personality and INEC youth ambassador.


The panel will be moderated by Tolu Adeleru-Balogun, a journalist and TV host.
