A civil rights organisation under the aegis of Connected Development has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to review its voting hours to avoid disenfranchisement of more than 30 million eligible registered voters in the 2023 elections.

The organisation said the demand became necessary after its observations of the just concluded Kenya general election.

The Director (Democracy and Governance) in CODE, Emmanuel Njoku, made the recommendation during the official launch of its annual report detailing various interventions and efforts to institutionalise governance accountability and transparency in Nigeria and Africa.

According to him, an INEC review of voting hours was recommended because if not done, more than 30 million eligible registered voters could be disenfranchised in the 2023 elections.
