Many double, multiple and ineligible registration discovered in the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) held between January 1 and July 31 have been delisted from voter register, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), said yesterday.

INEC’s National Commissioner/ Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Mr. Festus Okoye, who made the disclosure in a statement yesterday in Abuja, said the irregularities were discovered during the cleaning up of the voter register with the Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS).

Okoye said: “The ABIS for the period January 15 to July 31, 2022 is almost completed. Several double, multiple and ineligible registrants have also been detected and invalidated.

These include entries that failed to meet the Commission’s business rules. The Commission takes this responsibility seriously because a credible register is at the heart of electoral integrity.

“As soon as the process is concluded, the Commission will provide the public with full information as usual.

“Thereafter, valid registrants will be added to the existing national register of voters before publishing same nationwide for scrutiny, claims and objections as required by the Electoral Act 2022.

“Also, PVC’s for all valid registrants will be available for collection by the end of October and early November as promised.”
