NewsNigeriaPoliticsINEC says over 7m online voter applicants failed in process completion

Over seven million Nigerians who carried out their voter pre-registration online did not complete the process at physical centres according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

In June 2021, the commission began the CVR exercise and launched a portal where Nigerians can register by filling in their biodata and required documents, after which they will visit INEC-designated centres to complete the process physically.

Going to a physical centre where biometric capturing would be done was a prerequisite to completing the voter registration process.

According to data released by the commission, 10,487,972 Nigerians carried out their pre-registration online.

But INEC said out of this number, only 3,444,378 Nigerians representing 32.8 percent, completed the process at a physical centre.

This means 7,043,594 persons representing over 67 percent of those who began their registration process online, are not eligible to receive a voter card before the 2023 general election and will therefore not be able to vote.
