Over seven million Nigerians, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), did not finish the registration procedure at physical centers spread around the nation.
Recall that the CVR operation, which involved continuous voter registration, was completed on Sunday, July 31.
Data released by the commission showed that 10,487,972 Nigerians carried out their pre-registration online. Out of this number, only 3,444,378 Nigerians representing 32.8 percent, completed the process at a physical centre.
The data also showed that 7,043,594 persons representing over 67 percent of those who began their registration process online, are not eligible to receive a voter card before the 2023 general election and will therefore not be able to vote.
Though INEC said a total of 12,298,944 Nigerians completed their voter registration, 8,854,566 of that number are individuals who carried out all their registration process at a physical centre.
