It is constitutionally impossible to resume voter registration – INEC

Nov 23, 2022

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reacted to the federal high court judgement which ordered it to resume voter registration.

 

Speaking on a Channels Television’s program on Tuesday, November 22, INEC National Commissioner and Director of Voter Education, Festus Okoye said it would be constitutionally and legally impossible to resume voter registration before the 2023 elections.

 

Okoye who further revealed that INEC is working on improving the voter registration process for future elections, also suggested that voter registration ahead of the 2023 elections was more or less over. 

 

He said;

 

“It would be constitutionally and legally impossible for the Commission to resume the Continuous Voter Registration exercise.”
