Nigerians have been assured by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), that the issue of underage voters will be addressed in the 2023 general election.
INEC’s director of voter registration and publicity, Victor Aluko, who appeared on a Channels Television program on Sunday, November 20, stated that they have a plan to ensure that underage voters do not participate in 2023 election.
Aluko also promised Nigerians that INEC’s revision officers would work on all other complaints raised after they are collated.
“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.
“If you complain and you do not let us know that complaint, then how do we work on the complaints?.
“That is why I’m saying we take in the register and then we work on the register, and at the end of the day, we have a very clean register as we prepare for the general election.
“And I’m assuring you that no underage person will come to our polling units to come and vote on election day.”
