A transparency organisation, Connected Development (CODE) has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to ensure that the many challenges that marred the credibility of the Presidential election are handled ahead of Saturday’s Governorship election in parts of the country.


Hamzat Lawal, the Chief Executive Officer of the group, gave the charge during a press briefing on Thursday.


Hamzat urged INEC to ensure a swift deployment, early opening of polls, professional conduct of security personnel, strict adherence to the use of BVAS for biometric accreditation, and electronic transmission of results from polling unit as stipulated by the Electoral Act 2022 and INEC 2023 Election guidelines for the conduct of the elections.
