Nigeria’s electoral commission says it has added more than 10 million new voters to its register.
In the latest numbers released on Monday, most of the newly registered voters were young people.
The year-long voter registration exercise ended on Sunday.
Next February, Nigerians will elect a new president to succeed Muhammadu Buhari - who has served the two terms allowed by the constitution.
Voters will also elect state governors and legislators
In the last election in 2019, there were 84 million registered voters, according to the electoral commission.
Analysts say the youth vote could be a deciding factor in the coming general election.
