As the 2023 general election is fast approaching, the Independent National Electoral Commission has

raised concerns about the elections on Wednesday, citing the 20 million Permanent Voters Cards that have yet to be claimed by their owners.



The commission also criticized citizens' low participation in the ongoing continuous voter registration drive.

Mary Nkem, INEC's Deputy Director (Voter Education), stated this in Abuja during the launch of the PVC Bus Drive project, which was organized by the Advocacy for Civic Engagement, a non-governmental organization.

As a result, she urged Nigerians, particularly the youth, to participate actively in the process of electing new leaders.

She believes that votes, not social media, will determine the winners of the 2023 general elections.

Meanwhile, the e deadline for the registration is June 30.
