INEC reveals how many new voters registered in 2017

Unread postby Wsj » Sat Dec 09, 2017 9:11 am

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said no fewer than 3.63 million new voters have been registered in ongoing Continuous Voter Registration across the country.

The Chairman of the commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, made this known at a retreat for Resident Electoral Commissioners in Uyo on Friday.


Yakubu said that the voter registration would continue until 60 days to the 2019 general elections.

He said that the retreat was organised to acquaint the newly-appointed RECs with the commission’s activities.

According to him, the retreat will fine tune ways of improving the management and conduct of ongoing continuous voter registration.

“For the first time in the history of INEC, citizens who have attained the voting age of 18 years and those who could not register during the previous CVR, now have the opportunity to do so.


“So far, 3, 630, 529 new voters have been registered,’’ Yakubu said.

He noted that one persistent challenge facing the commission had been low level of voter turnout in recent elections.

He said, “We must redesign and develop more effective voter education strategies and platforms while we continue to work with other stakeholders to galvanise voters to come out and vote.”
