Prof. Mahmood Yakubu has said INEC has 74 million voters in its register by the second week of January.
He said the figure was expected to reach between 80 and 85 million by 2019 because of the on-going nationwide Continuous Voter Registration (CVR).
He assured Nigerians that only their votes would determine the 2019 general elections and beyond.
Yakubu noted that there had been a lot of improvement in the electoral process since the current commission came on board.
He said the commission was not unmindful of the enormous responsibility of conducting elections in a democracy.
He also stressed the commission’s resolve to adhere strictly to the timelines provided in the recently released Timetable and Schedule of Activities for the 2019 general elections.
