Election is an integral part of democracy.Elections are held to justify and acknowledge the will of the people as to who should represent, govern, and occupy an elective position. Credible election does not only legitimize the powers of the elected office holders but also make the sovereign power of the citizens known. However, election in Nigeria is trapped in transitiondue to electoral malpractices and lack of genuine voters register. Thus, election marked by irregularities and malpractices impedes democratic growth.This paper argues that genuine voter’sregister and credible election is sine qua non for strengthening democracy in Nigeria
