Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has delisted (removed) more than one million newly registered voters.

BBC Pidgin reported that the electoral body delisted the affected voters following its verification process and ‘’clean up’’ of the voter register.

The electoral body, in a statement on Monday, September 12, said the affected persons are people that registered between June 2021 and January 2022.

The commission added that during the period in review, 2,523,458 people registered to get the permanent voters card. However, it was discovered from the record that 1,126,259 registered voters are “invalid and so delisted”.

This means that nearly half of the registrations during the period under review are invalid. The electoral umpire revealed that its technology experts detect “double, multiple and ineligible registrants.”
