The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is set to scrutinise the preliminary voter register for revalidation
The goal, according to sources close to the electoral agency, is to clean up the register, detect and eliminate double registration.
However, the source, who is silent on the penalty for those who had registered more than once, said only the second registration will be voided; the first will be sustained.
The source said the commission attached great importance to a valid and non-controversial voter register as part of its preparations for next year’s polls.
No fewer than 93,303,016 eligible voters are now on the voter register. The registration ended last Sunday.
