The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday maintained that the 2023 general election will hold, despite the security challenges bedeviling Nigeria.
INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, stated this in Abuja at a public presentation of the 2022 to 2026 strategic plan and the 2023 elections project plan.
Professor Yakubu explained that the documents presented were the third in the series of strategic election plans since the commencement of deliberate planning of elections in 2012.
According to him, the 2023 polls will be governed by the new Electoral Act, which contains provisions that will enhance the capacity and ability of the Commission to better manage the electoral process.
While promising to ensure the safety of electoral personnel and materials, accredited observers, media practitioners, and voters, Professor Yakubu called for the support of all Nigerians to effectively conduct the elections.
