The Independent National Electoral Commission,INEC says it will embark on aggressive constitutional and electoral reforms to enhance the integrity of the electoral process.
The commission also promised to consider the duality of electronic and manual collation and transmission of results to prevent noticeable lapses.
A National Commissioner of INEC, Festus Okoye made this known on Wednesday in Enugu during the presentation of Certificates of Return to elected members of state assembly, governor and deputy governor-elect in the March 9 elections.
Okoye, who is the commissioner in charge of Information and Voter Education, said that the commission could no longer afford to plan in an uncertain environment.
He said that a section of the political class had refused to imbibe the democratic spirit that puts obedience and respect to constitutional dictates at the centre.
He said that INEC would take steps that would prevent political thugs from storming collation centres in search of results.
The commissioner charged the beneficiaries of the certificates to live up to the expectations of their people.
