Over seven million Nigerians, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), did not finish the registration process at physical centres spread throughout the nation.
Recall that the CVR exercise, which involved continuous voter registration, was completed on Sunday, July 31.
According to information made public by the commission, 10,487,972 Nigerians pre-registered online.
Only 3,444,378 Nigerians (32.8%) out of this total finished the process at a physical centre.
The data also showed that 7,043,594 persons, representing over 67 per cent of those who began their registration process online, are not eligible to receive a voter card before the 2023 general election and will therefore not be able to vote.
Though INEC said a total of 12,298,944 Nigerians completed their voter registration, 8,854,566 of that number are individuals who carried out all their registration process at a physical centre.
