The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it has registered a total of 14 million new voters across the country.

They were registered within 16 months under the continuous voter registration (CVR) exercise.

INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, revealed this at a meeting with the Resident Electoral Commissioners in Abuja on Thursday.

With 14 million more Nigerians registered to vote, Professor Yakubu said the total number of voters registered by the commission now stands at 84 million.

The INEC boss added that the number of those who took part in the CVR exercise represented a 21 percent increase in the total figure of eligible voters in the country.

The CVR exercise ended on Friday last week.
