IT goes without saying that a national process such as the just ended elections we had cannot go without challenges. Admittedly, some teething problems were observed at the start of the polling process especially on the early and late stages of the Elections. We particularly experienced challenges with regards to Aspirant’s concerns on issues such sucuirity, voters register which resulted in delays in the Voting Process. Some Aspirant’s also sought to breach the process by making unscrupulous demands and dictates at the Electoral Commission but in all We stood Firm and Fair in all our Dealings.
It is the undertaking of the Electoral Commission that we have learned the lessons and will meticulously workout strategies to address these in future electoral processes.
