The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, states that the off-cycle governorship elections in Bayelsa, Imo, and Kogi states, scheduled for this Saturday, come after the electoral body learned valuable lessons from the recently conducted elections.
“As with every election, lessons have been learnt from recent elections,” Yakubu disclosed on Thursday in a statement addressed to stakeholders.
Describing elections as a multi-stakeholder responsibility, he added, “We will continue to ensure free, fair, and credible and inclusive elections but INEC cannot do it alone.”
He mentioned that the commission has received assurances from security agencies, ensuring a secure environment for electoral activities. This includes the safety of all participants such as voters, electoral officials, accredited observers, the media, and polling/collation agents.
