The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC says it has implemented many of the 178 recommendations made by accredited domestic and international observers on the 2019 general elections.
INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu said this at the commission’s meeting with the European Union EU Election Observation Follow-up Mission, led by the Head of EU Observation Mission, Maria Arena, in Abuja.
Yakubu said that immediately after the 2019 general election, INEC undertook a comprehensive review of the election observation reports by accredited domestic and international observers.
He said beyond that, INEC conducted its own internal review involving the commission’s regular and ad-hoc officials and subsequently expanded it to include political parties, civil society organisations, security agencies and media organisations.
Earlier in her remarks, Arena, said the purpose of the mission was to assess how recommendations made on the 2019 general elections had been implemented.
