INEC Says Youth Population Constitute Majority of Registered Voters


Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says the youth population constitutes the greatest number of registered voters for the 2023 general elections in Nigeria.

National Commissioner, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, who stated this in Awka explained that analysis of registered voters from June 28, 2021, to July 31, 2022, by INEC, indicates dominance of young voters.

Okoye who stressed that the youth have numerical potentials to drive the electoral process to decide election contests noted that of more than 9.5 million Nigerians, who completed their registration process, 76 per cent of new registrants, who are within 18 to 34 years of age, are young people.

Okoye noted that politically engaged and conscious youths must assist others with negligent disposition to national issues to become more focused.
