The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) told Nigerians that it will emulate the success of the Osun and Ekiti gubernatorial elections next month.
The promise was delivered at the Amber Zone Implementers Workshop for the 2023 General Elections, which was organized by INEC in conjunction with Development Alternatives Incorporated (DAI) and European Union Support for Democratic Governance in Nigeria (EUSDGN).
Olusegun Agbaje, Lagos State Resident Electoral Commissioner, highlighted in his remarks that the EMSC remained a proactive approach to reducing issues during elections.
He explained that, notwithstanding INEC’s constitutional mandate and obligation to conduct free, fair, credible, and error-free elections, the commission must demonstrate its ingenuity, capability, dedication, and resolve to carry out a credible exercise next year.
Prof. Mohammed Kuna, Special Adviser to INEC Chairman, recognized that while training is critical to the overall health of the election process, preparations have begun in earnest.
He emphasized the importance of conducting readiness assessments state by state and council by council.
