Cleanup ongoing, voter register not compromised, says INEC

Ahead of the 2023 general elections, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has debunked claims that the nation’s voter register was comprised by external elements.

Ahead of the 2023 general elections, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has debunked claims that the nation’s voter register was comprised by external elements.

It said cleanup of registration data for the recently concluded Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise is ongoing. The commission was reacting to allegation by Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) that some forces have begun adulterating the voter register.

CUPP had also alleged that a court case was initiated to force INEC to stop use of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) in the 2023 elections.

CUPP spokesperson, Ikenga Ugochinyere, at a press conference in Abuja, presented a copy of the suit filed at the Owerri Federal High Court on August 24 and copies of voter register with questionable names.

But responding, INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, (Information and Voter Education Committee), Festus Okoye, in a statement, said no new registrant has yet been added to the register of voters for the general elections.

He noted that the commission recognises and respects the right of citizens, either as individuals and groups, to demand explanation from public agencies, including INEC, and to hold them accountable.
