Why Nigerians In Diaspora Can’t Vote In 2023 Elections  — INEC Chairman

Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, the National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has explained the main reason Nigerians in the diaspora won’t be participating in the 2023 general elections.

While speaking about the commission’s preparations for the 2023 general elections at Chatham House in London on Tuesday, January 17, 2023, the INEC boss said he wanted Nigerians abroad to participate in the 2023 general election but the commission does not have the power to make diaspora voting possible.

“Voting by those in the diaspora should be a settled issue. I support it but INEC doesn’t have the power to make it happen. They’re citizens and they must enjoy rights,” he said.

He also explained that INEC and some diasporans proposed to the national assembly that Nigerians abroad should be allowed to vote, but their proposal was rejected.
