We Have nothing to hide – INEC chairman

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu stated this at the Post Election Review of the 2023 General Elections with Media Stakeholders in Lagos.

Yakubu said there were many positive things that came out of the 2023 elections despite the many challenges.

The chairman admitted that despite the challenges during the last elections, there would be continuous improvement by the commission in conducting elections nationwide.

“This is an opportunity for the media executives in their various organisations to tell us what they have seen and how we can continue to improve the electoral process in the future.

” The commission has nothing to hide and it is this type of interaction that we continuously improve on the process for future elections”.

Yakubu said INEC invited media executives that operate at the state, local governments and community levels that had covered the elections and interacted with Nigerians in their local languages.

He said the commission, in addition to what it did in Abuja in the previous week, would also listen to the executives on what came out of reporters about the elections at local and community levels.

According to him, it is through these interactions and discussions with the media that the commission can widen the scope of consultations on the elections.

Yakubu stated that as part of the review it was undertaking, the commission would like to know what constraints the media experienced right from the process of accreditation, to access to locations of polling units and collation centres during the elections.

He said it would also want to get appraisals on the security arrangements and advise for improvement, going forward.

Yakubu said that the commission may approach the National Assembly to amend the law to accommodate Nigerians that were unable to vote, because of the nature of their jobs.
