The Chairman of INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, who stated this at the post-election review meeting with electoral officers and transporters in Abuja said interacting with critical electoral officials, particularly on a wide range of issues will enhance preparations for the three off-cycle Governorship elections as they are determined to uphold the commission’s integrity for impactful democracy
The Chairman, Planning, Monitoring and Strategic Committee (PMSC), Professor Rhoda Gumus, had said the decision to organise the meeting became imperative after the successful conduct of the 2023 general elections.

She said the meeting would undertake a comprehensive post-election review to learn critical lessons for future elections and attend to the questions of “how far and how well”.
