Nigerians on Friday expressed their disappointing on social media over alleged underaged registered voters ahead of the 2023 general elections.

There were suspicions that there were several registered voters who were alleged to be under the constitutional voting age in Nigeria.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in response said that it would address all issues raised concerning the national register of voters.

INEC, in line with its timetable and schedule of activities for the 2023 general elections, recently published the preliminary national register of voters in the 8,809 Registration Areas (Wards) nationwide.

Many took to social media to lament the anomaly while others suggested using AI to recognize underaged registered voters.
