“The commission states unequivocally that the site is not linked to the commission and the link/portal is spurious and from a dubious source,” Mr Okoye said.

Okoye, in his statement, did not mention the name, link or details of the said website but ringed the commission’s exclusive power to register voters and conduct national elections in the country.

He said that the commission had ended the exercise and, therefore, should embrace the reality.

He stressed that the exercise has been concluded nationwide, and the commission does not need to open another website or portal for the voters’ registration exercise.
