INEC To Publish Comprehensive Registered Voters’ List Says Yakubu

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will soon publish the comprehensive list of registered voters, integrating fresh voters registered under the last Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) to the existing register of over 84 million voters.

INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, disclosed this on Tuesday in Abuja at the Stakeholders Validation meeting for the 2022 Revised Framework and Regulations for Voting by Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

According to him, it has become necessary to make the important clarification in respect of a statement attributed to a section of the Civil Society Organizations.

He assured Nigerians that the Commission will display the comprehensive register in all the 8,809 Wards and 774 Local Government Areas/Area Councils nationwide as envisaged in Section 19(1) of the Electoral Act 2022.

The date will be announced as soon the Commission completes the ongoing Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) to weed out all double/multiple as well as ineligible registrants.
