2023: We won’t lower electoral bar, says INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Friday said it would punish political parties found to be violating electoral timelines as well as provisions of the new Electoral Act 2022 (as amended), especially during the 2023 elections.

The commission also maintained its ground not to jettison electronic transmission of results and revert to manual process and would not lower the bar in next year’s election.

INEC National Commissioner and Chairman of its Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, clarified a post-election roundtable and public presentation of the final report on the observation of the 2022 Ekiti and Osun Governorship Election, organized by a human rights organization, Yiaga Africa.

While seeking the cooperation of Nigerians, Okoye advised civil society organizations and other critical stakeholders to study the Electoral Act 2022 to gain needed knowledge of its provisions.
