The Nigeria Civil Society Situation Room has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to comply with provisions of the 2022 electoral act by displaying voters register at the Registration Area/Ward level and on its website for 7 days.

The provision in Section 19(1) of the Electoral Act, 2022 states that the voters’ register “shall be displayed or published for public scrutiny at every registration area and on its official website or any website established by the Commission for that purpose”.

Ene Obi, Situation room Convener, in a statement, Monday in Abuja said the manner in which the electoral body has displayed register of voters for public scrutiny does not fully conform with the provisions of the Electoral Act, 2022.
