The INEC Chairman noted that, shortly after the signing into law of the electoral act, the Commission released the Timetable and Schedule of Activities for the 2023 General Election which contains 14 activities out of which two have already been implemented

The leader of the delegation and European Union Chief Election Observer, Maria Arena, had earlier in a speech, assured of the Union’s support to deepening Nigeria’s Electoral process while the European Union ambassador to Nigeria Samuela Isopa encouraged INEC to expedite action to implement the signed Electoral law.
