It is constitutionally impossible to resume voter registration – INEC
Independent National Electoral Commission has reacted against the Federal High Court judgement that ordered it to resume voter registration.
Festus Okoye, INEC National Commissioner, and Director of Voter education, said during a Channels TV program that it would be constitutionally and legally impossible to resume voter registration before the 2023 elections.
Okoye revealed that INEC is working to improve voter registration process for future elections. He also suggested that voter registration before the 2023 elections was more or less over.
“It would be constitutionally and legally impossible for the Commission to resume the Continuous Voter Registration exercise.”
