The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof Attahiru Jega has today publicly declared that the electoral body is fully ready to conduct the general elections which is meant for next week Saturday March 28th. All procedures are prepared for, and we should have a credible election.
At a meeting with some Civil Societal bodies in Abuja today, Prof Jega said the time provided as a result of the postponement has really helped the commission articulate its plan for the conduct of a successful election.
"We believe very strongly that the period of the extension has been put to good use and it has added value and obviously we would be able to do a much better election and it also enforced our belief that the elections for 2015 will be remarkably better than the 2011 elections and in fact we believe it will be the best election in Nigeria's history" he said.
He however raised concerns over the security of INEC staffs and NYSC members who would be working during the election days
"Clearly security remains an issue of concern particularly securing the staff of INEC as they are being deployed or as they are conducting the elections and also protecting the election environment" he said.Enjoy loads of other recent stories from this blog.. do visit our HOME page!
