The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has revealed that ninety-five million voters are expected to determine President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor in the 2023 poll.

Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, the INEC Chairman, disclosed this at a function organised by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) in Washington DC, U.S.

Yakubu, in a keynote address titled “Nigeria 2023: ensuring credible, peaceful and inclusive elections”, made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Thursday, described the 2023 general election as significant to Nigeria.

“There are 18 political parties in the race to produce the next President to be elected by 95 million voters. We had over 84 million registered voters in 2019.

“But with last Continuous Voter Registration(CVR), we are going to add at least 10 million Nigerians, and that will take the Register of Voters to 95 million,” Yakubu said.

He said the election was significant as 95 million Nigerians were expected to vote in 176, 846 polling units.
