NGE urges INEC to address electoral lapses - ITREALMS

The Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to address the lapses observed during the elections to ensure a better exercise in future, reports ITREALMS.

NGE in a communique issued at the end of the first quarterly meeting of the standing committee of the Nigerian Guild last Friday in Lagos and signed by the due of NGE president, Funke Egbemode and Victoria Ibanga and made available to ITREALMS.

”There is a compelling and urgent need to take steps to address the lapses observed during the elections to ensure a better exercise in future, particularly the coming Gubernatorial and State Assembly elections,” NGE said.
They were particular about the Presidential and National Assembly elections held on February 23, 2019.

They also condemned the violence that characterised the elections in many parts of the country, which led to loss of lives and burning of several electoral materials.

Government, security agencies, INEC and politicians, NGE said, must live above board and avoid every action that could lead to a breakdown of law and order in future elections.

The Guild equally implored aggrieved parties to follow due process in seeking redress for any perceived injustice arising from the polls.

Maintaining that to ensure better organised elections in future, the new administration should, as a matter of urgency, set up machinery to carry out electoral reforms, stressing that this will guarantee a more credible and acceptable process.
