In advance of the 2023 election, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied tampering with the voter list.
The Continuous Voter Registration (CVR), which started in January, was finished by the electoral umpire on July 31.
Festus Okoye, the INEC’s Director of Information and Voter Education, reported on Thursday that no new registrants had been added.
The commissioner stated that such action would only be taken following the conclusion of additional activities required by law.
Following a press conference by the Coalition of United Political Parties, INEC responded (CUPP).
“No new registrant has yet been added to the Register of Voters for the 2023 General Election”, Okoye stressed.
The commission is cleaning up the Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) by carefully reviewing each record, the spokesman revealed.
According to Section 10 of the Electoral Act of 2022, any record that does not match all the requirements for inclusion would be discarded.
Okoye stated that attendees must show up at the registration location with identification that includes proof of their age, nationality, fingerprints, and identity.
“It is only after the claims and objections have been completed that the final register will be published”, the official added.
Okoye gave the assurance that INEC would keep the public informed of the developments in the proceedings.
