The International Republican Institute (IRI) and National Democratic Institute (NDI) Joint Election Observation Mission (IEOM) has said that despite the 2022 electoral reforms, the 2023 election has so far fallen short of citizens’ expectations.
The Joint Election Observation Mission, which was led by the former president of Malawi, Dr Joyce Banda, said logistic challenges and multiple incidents of political violence overshadowed the electoral process.
Banda said despite large crowds in some polling stations and long waits, Nigerian voters demonstrated commitment to participate in the process and a strong desire to have their voices heard.
He also congratulates the people of Nigeria for their resilience and enthusiasm to participate in the process.
