The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Mahmud Yakubu has admitted that the commission learnt some vital lessons from the conduct of the last general election and would capitalise on their success to make improvements in 2023.

He assured Nigerians that the lessons learnt will guide INEC in delivering a better, transparent and more credible election in the future.

The INEC boss stated this at the opening ceremony of the 2019 Post Election Review Meeting of the commission, at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Ikeja Lagos on Thursday where he was a special guest.

Yakubu, while expressing the determination of his commitment to continue to improve on the credibility of elections in the country, also disclosed that eleven meetings have been held by INEC with important stakeholders since the conclusion of the last election.

“After the 2019 general election, we are more determined than ever to improve on the quality of elections in Nigeria.

“We have learnt a lot from the conduct of the last general elections. Vital lessons have been learnt from our interactions with stakeholders on how we can improve our efforts.

“In all facets of our duties as Electoral umpires, we are determined to improve on electoral processes in the country, using the lessons we have learnt from the last general election.

“After each election, plans for the next election should promptly commence. That is what we are doing now as we pursue our determination to improve the electoral processes in future,” he said.

According to INEC’s National Commissioner, Dr. Mustapha Lecky, the reason for the review meeting is to discuss 14 major issues raised from the various meetings held with stakeholders. The participants are also expected to proffer solutions they will like to see in the resolution of the issues raised.

“This is the time to look at what we did well, what we didn’t do well as well as what we didn’t do at all that we need to do. We need to proffer solutions to what was wrongly done in order to improve on the entire process.

“We need to concern ourselves with the need of people with disabilities as regards voting and participating in elections.

“There are several issues raised about this and if we continue to ignore their concerns, they may take us to court and this will affect the next election.
