2023: Panic as INEC reveals 45% of PVCs invalid

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said 45 percent of the total number of registered voters have been found to be invalid as of January 14, 2022.

This revelation comes with about a year to the 2023 general elections in the country.

INEC however noted that at least 1,390,519 Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) are valid.

While describing the situation as challenging, the commission said it would continue to clean up the voters’ register.

The Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, disclosed this on Wednesday during a press conference in Abuja.

Yakubu said, “Presently, nearly 45% of completed registrations nationwide are invalid, rising to as high as 60% or more in some states.

This infraction happened in all states of the federation. No state is immune from it. These invalid registrations will not be included in the register of voters.

This development is worrisome because of the time and resources expended in handling these cases.”
