Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been stopped by the Federal High court from ending the voter registration on June 30 2022.

This is coming after SERAP and 185 other concerned Nigerians had filed a lawsuit – FHC/L/CS/1034/2022 at the Federal High Court, Lagos and transferred to Abuja against INEC.

The suit followed the inability of INEC to extend the online pre-registration deadline, which ended May 30, 2022, and the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) ending June 30 2022.

Justice Mobolaji Olajuwon granted an order of interim injunction following the hearing of an argument on a motion exparte by Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP).
