INEC to begin review of 2023 elections in July




The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will begin the review of the 2023 general election in July.

The INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, disclosed this in a statement after the commission’s regular meeting on Thursday in Abuja.

He said the decision was in line with the commission’s practice over the years.

The review, according to Okoye, will focus on all aspects of the electoral activities before, during, and after the elections.

He said the exercise would involve the INEC officials at national and state levels as well as stakeholders with a view to learning lessons and charting the way forward.
