The court rules that INEC must make sufficient arrangements for the election in conformity with Nigerian law as required by the constitution.

The Independent National Electoral Commission must immediately restart the Continuous Voters Registration program until 90 days before the 2023 elections, according to an Abuja-based Federal High Court.
On Tuesday, November 22, 2022, Justice Inyang Ekwo read the decision and gave the electoral commission instructions to make sure that eligible Nigerians are given the chance to get voter identification cards.
According to the judgment, INEC has a constitutional obligation to make sufficient arrangements for the election in conformity with Nigerian law.
“The case of the plaintiffs succeeds on merit,” the judge said.
According to reports, Anajat Salmat and three other individuals sued INEC after the registration period for voters was closed in July.
According to the plaintiffs, the electoral commission’s decision to call off the election was against the constitution’s predetermined provisions.
They pleaded with the court to compel INEC to carry out the mandate in conformity with the law of the land.
A general election in 2023 is only three months away.
The next election is set to start on Saturday, February 25, 2022, with the presidential race being the first.
