Ongoing ….Hon. Chairman INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu and Commission’s member today continued with its comprehensive review of the 2023 General Election with a meeting with the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee On Election Security (ICCES) at Commission’s Conference Hall Abuja. 

As we review the conduct of the last general election, we also need to focus our attention on the forthcoming bye-elections and the three off-cycle Governorship elections in Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi States. Campaigns in public in the three States commenced on 14th July 2023 and will continue until Thursday 9th November 2023 i.e. 24 hours to the opening of polls on Saturday 11th November 2023. 

Already, there are ominous signs in the form of violent clashes between opposing political parties and candidates. 

While maintaining strict neutrality, security agencies should take decisive action against purveyors of violence and other undemocratic activities such as vote buying, attacks on election officials and disruption of the electoral process.
