CVR: INEC yanks off 1,126,359 invalid registrants
Out of the 2,523,458 new registrants who signed up between June 28, 2021, and January 14, 2022, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced yesterday that 1,126,359 of them had been delisted.

Festus Okoye, National Commissioner and INEC's Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee, made this statement on Monday night in Abuja.

He claims that after the suspension of Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) on July 31, 2022, work has been ongoing to update the voter list utilising the Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS).

“Earlier, the commission informed Nigerians that out of the 2,523,458 fresh registrants that registered between 28th June 2021 and 14th January 2022, 1,126,359 records were found to be invalid and consequently delisted,” Okoye said.

Prime 9ja Online reports that this means that only 1,397,099 of the fresh registration are valid and would be added to the existing voter register.
