The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to urgently allow Nigerians to complete voter registration.

SERAP said INEC should allow seven million Nigerians to complete their registration.

The body noted that Nigerians need to complete the process to partake in the 2023 general elections.

INEC had said over seven million Nigerians failed to complete their online voter pre-registration at physical centres.

The continuous voter registration exercise (CVR), which began in June 2021, ended on Sunday, July 31, 2022.

INEC had launched a portal where Nigerians could register by filing in their biodata and required documents, after which they were expected to visit INEC designated centres to complete the process physically.

Reacting, SERAP, in a tweet, wrote: “BREAKING: INEC must urgently allow the over seven million Nigerians who reportedly carried out their voter pre-registration online but could not complete the process at physical centres, to complete their registration so that they can vote in the 2023 elections.”
