Written by on February 20, 2023

The Nigerian Guild of Editors has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to deliver on its promises to conduct successful polls.

This is contained in a communiqué signed by the group President, Mustapha Isah and the General Secretary, Iyobosa Uwugiaren, at the end of a meeting of its Standing Committee in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

The guild also urged the security agencies and other stakeholders to live up to expectations in making sure that the presidential and National Assembly elections scheduled for February 25 and the governorship/states Houses of Assembly elections slated for March 11 turn out successful.

The guild also noted that all eyes would be on the operation of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, BVAS, and urged the electoral body to make sure that the devices are in top shape to perform fully and actualise the intended purpose of their introduction during the polls.

The 2023 presidential election will take place on Saturday.
