The Nigeria Civil Society Situation room has asked the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission Mahmood Yakubu , to apologize to Nigerians for the technical hitches experienced during the 2023 General Elections.
But while there were flaws recorded not all activists believe that elections should be totally condemned.
These positions were recorded in Abuja at the public presentation of a report on Nigeria’s 2023 General Election by the Nigeria Civil society situation room
Nigeria’s 2023 GENERAL Election is already a past event, but the issues raised about its conduct have not entirely disappeared.
The Nigeria Civil society situation room, a civil society organisation which extensively observed the conduct of the election across the country has come out with a report on the performance of the Electoral Umpire, and the entire Electoral process.
It asked the Chairman of INEC to apologise to Nigerians for the hitches that affected a full deployment of technology in the collation of results.
All the same, some activists insist that identified glitches in the conduct of the polls should not lead to a total condemnation of the credibility of the polls
INEC says it has also started a comprehensive review of the 2023 General Election,
However it urges the situation room to not be too quick in writing off the whole process without taking into account the hurdles and challenges it faced during the process .
The Situation room urges the Electoral Commission to identify its area of challenges and put in place measures that will prevent a reoccurrence in future elections.
