He said that the registrants may also observe other anomalies like registering of foreign nationals, underaged children, or inclusion of the names of deceased persons in the register.

Also, INEC, Lagos State will as from Tuesday 21st September, 2021 suspend the online pre-registration of voters that started on 28th June, 2021 and in-person registration that commenced on the 26th July 2021 and thereafter embark on display of voter register for claims and objections.
