Peter Obi stated this in an effort to prevent millions of Nigerians from becoming disenfranchised ahead of the 2023 general elections, as INEC have failed to extend the deadline for collecting Permanent Voters Cards.

According to reports from across the country, INEC lacks the capacity to register the millions of Nigerians, particularly youths, with complaints that Nigerians have to wait hours to be captured, a development that the Labour Party candidate is unhappy about.

Peter Obi took to his Twitter account to formally request that INEC expedite the registration of Nigerians in order for them to exercise their voting rights.

Information reaching me indicate that voter registration across Nigeria, more so in the South East, is dogged by inertia & bureaucratic bottlenecks. I respectfully call on @inecnigeria to facilitate speedy registration of Nigerians to enable them exercise their voting rights.”

Meanwhile, Peter Obi has urged eligible Nigerians to get their Permanent Voters Cards, or PVCs, before the deadline for registration expires.

The former governor of Anambra advised Nigerians to register with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in order to exercise their right to vote.

The PVC’s online registration period finished on May 30, and the physical registration period is set to elapse by the end of June.
