INEC Delists 1.1m Newly Registered Voters

The Independent National Electoral Commission says it has delisted 1,126,359 people out of the 2, 523,458 fresh registrants that registered between June 28, 2021, and January 14, 2022.

The Commission said it did that because it discovered several double, multiple, and ineligible registrants.

National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, who made this disclosure, said cleaning up of the register of voters using the Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) was ongoing since the suspension of the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) on 31st July 2022.

“The ABIS for the period – 15th January to 31st July 2022 is almost completed. Several double, multiple, and ineligible registrants have also been detected and invalidated. These include entries that fail to meet the Commission’s business rules.

“The commission takes this responsibility seriously because a credible register is at the heart of electoral integrity.

“As soon as the process is concluded, the commission will provide the public with full information as usual,”he said.
