The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has assured Nigerians that no underage person will be allowed to vote in the forthcoming 2023 General Elections. This was disclosed by the Commission’s Director of Voter Registration and Publicity, Victor Aluko during an interview on Channels Television.
Aluko said, “I assure you that the register will be cleaned up completely and no underage voter will vote in 2023. After we finish with the claims and objections on Friday, we will be taking in again for further claims based on the complaints of the people.
“That is why it is important that persons who noticed any issue at all with the register should complain through the right channels where they can be documented”.
He stated that after the collation of complaints, revision officers of INEC at various levels would resolve such complaints.
INEC made this assurance following the release of the voters register on the Commission’s website where Nigerians noticed discrepancies and filed complaints such as underage voters, falsified dates of birth, multiple registrations, amongst other issues.
