The hotline will allow voters and members of the public across Nigeria, are to report any issue that may affect them, or others, during the elections on Saturday, February 25, 2023.
The NCC has also reiterated that this move is not only to support the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) but also to show the importance attached to the upcoming Presidential Election.

“In view of the importance attached to the upcoming presidential election, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has dedicated its Consumer toll-free Number 622, to serve as the 2023 presidential election Incident Hotline to enable voters and members of the public across Nigeria to report any issues that may affect them, or others, during the elections on Saturday, February 25, 2023,” Danbatta said.
“The toll-free Number 622 is the second-level complaints centre through which consumers of telecommunications services are allowed to make calls directly to the commission, to resolve issues concerning their telecommunications services which the service providers are unable to do.
“This is with a view to resolving such issues by contacting and conveying such issues to relevant agencies, authorities, or organisations for timely resolution.
