The European Union Election Observation Mission has presented its final report on this year’s general elections to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
INEC said via it Twitter handle on Monday that the EU Mission was received by its Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, and the National Commissioners of the electoral body.
The tweet read: “The European Union Election Observation Mission, today, presented its final report on the 2023 general elections to the commission.
“INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, and National Commissioners were on hand to receive the visitors”.
Last 27th February, the EU had revealed in its report that lack of transparency in the conduct of the 2023 general elections deflated public trust in INEC.
It also noted that public confidence in INEC’s independence, professionalism and voter information efforts decreased even before 25th February.
While the EU acknowledged that the election took place as planned, it said operational failures, which challenged the right to vote, contributed to the reduced trust in the process.
