One hundred and eighty-seven candidates from 12 political parties are jostling for the 25 Cross River House of Assembly seats in the 2023 general elections.
Those who registered between January and June, would get their cards in October, while November is for those who registered from July 1 to July 31.
INEC commissioner Sam Olumekun said that priority was being given to the elderly, pregnant women and those who are physically challenged.
Mr Allawa said another major challenge the commission faced was poor networks, which had slowed the process during capturing.
All CVR activities except the collection of already printed PVCs would be suspended on Sunday, July 31.
The residents lamented that the exercise was marred by delay in capturing, slow process and other technical hitches.
INEC said it deployed more than 50 registration machines and 150 personnel for the exercise.
Mr Ibrahim said the organisation was creating awareness on the importance of voter registration and mobilising participation in the exercise.
INEC said the additional centres became necessary due to an upsurge of registrants wishing to obtain their Permanent Voter Card (PVC).
