According to him, the exercise will take place from February 14 to February 18.
Idowu said the list of registered voters would be displayed in all polling units to enable members of the public to register their claims and objections.
He added that the exercise would also be an opportunity for INEC to rectify irregular entries in the register.
“Perhaps you know an underage who registered or somebody who procured double registration or any fraudulent practice; this will be an opportunity to tell the commission.
“Based on such information, we will deal with such cases expeditiously according to the law,” Idowu said.
He pointed out that the exercise, which had not taken place in the immediate past, partly accounted for the problems that characterised the old voter register.
He urged Nigerians to turn out, in their numbers, for the exercise.
