With 100 days to the 2023 general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will start weekly media briefings to inform Nigerians on the progress made by the commission.
In a statement released to reporters today, INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu said the commission will start with bi-weekly briefing and later progress to weekly and daily briefings.
The INEC boss reiterated the commission’s loyalty to Nigerians who want free, fair, credible and verifiable elections supported by technology, which guarantees transparent accreditation and upload of polling unit results for citizens to view in real-time on Election Day.
He also restated that there is no going back on Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) and the INEC Result Viewing Portal (IReV) for the 2023 general elections.
He however appealed to political parties and political leaders to conduct their campaigns peacefully, eschewing divisiveness, rancour and violence.
