The Independent National Electoral Commission said it has deleted about 2.7 million double registrations.
INEC stated this on Tuesday as it noted that new Permanent Voter Cards will be made available by November.
INEC Chairman Prof Mahmoud Yakubu said this at a National Endowment for Democracy event in Washington DC in the United States.
Yakubu said 2.7 million double registrations were weeded out of the last Continuous Voters Registration exercise conducted by the commission.
According to him, about 50% of the new PVCs are ready but yet to be distributed to collection centres.
