The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), revealed that over 7 million Nigerians who carried out their voter pre-registration online didn’t complete the process.

According to a report released by the commission, 10,487,972 Nigerians carried out their pre-registration online. But only 3,444,378 Nigerians representing 32.8 per cent, completed the process at a physical centre.

Meanwhile, the 7,043,594 persons accounted for over 67per cent of those who began their registration process online, but could not collect a voter card, which implied that they will not be able to vote in the 2023 general elections.

This is coming after the INEC confirmed that the continuous voter registration exercise (CVR) ended on Sunday, 31 July 2022, as earlier fixed as the deadline.

This is the current standing of the continuous voters registration (CVR) per Geo-political zone:

  • North-West – 22.67 million
  •  South-West – 18.3 million
  •  South-South – 15.2 million
  •  North-Central – 14.2 million
