    2023 elections belong to young people – INEC 

    Published By:

    Professor Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), says the 2023 elections belong to the young people.

    Mahmood Yakubu stated this at Chatham House, United Kingdom on Tuesday while giving a breakdown of the voter registration and collection of Permanent Voter Cards in Nigeria.

    “We have 93.4 million registered voters of which 37 million, that is 39.5 percent, are young people between the ages of 18 and 34. Then, there are closely followed by 33.4 million or 36.75 percent middle age voters between 35 and 49.

    The INEC boss said, “Put together, these two categories constitute 75.39 per cent of registered voters in Nigeria. So, actually the 2023 election is the election of the young people, because they have the numbers. Even the majority of the PVCs collected are collected by young people.

    “So, out of the 93.4 million, 70.4 million registered voters are between the ages of 18 and 49,” Yakubu stated
