More than half of Nigerians who registered to vote in the 2023 general elections have been disqualified.
In a statement, INEC Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye explained that the 1.1 million newly registered voters were delisted for failing to meet its business rules.
Specifically, the commission said out of a total of two million, five hundred and twenty-three thousand, four hundred and fifty-eight fresh registrants, only one million, one hundred and twenty-six thousand, three hundred and fifty-nine records were found to be invalid and consequently delisted.
