The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will not hesitate to prosecute anyone who tries to hack its website in the cause of the online Continuous Voter Registration (CVR).
Dr Emmanuel Hart, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Cross River said this on Tuesday in Calabar while speaking to newsmen after day one of the CVR exercise.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the CVR started on Monday nationwide.
He said that the commission would apply all relevant aspects of the Law to ensure the prosecution of any registration offender.
“INEC will not hesitate to prosecute anyone who tries to hack its website during this Online registration exercise.
“We have the Cybercrime Law 2015 and the Electoral Act 2010 section 117 (as amended).
“This will further apply to other registration offences including double registration, underage registration and other related offences,” he said.
According to him, while the INEC Online Pre-Registration kicked off Monday, the In-Person (physical) registration will start on July 19, nationwide.
