The coalition of civil society organizations on gender equality, leadership and good governance through their president, Elizabeth Oziri in a statement released on Thursday has told INEC to conduct credible governorship and state assembly elections.
“Although the exercise was devoid of any hitches and chaos in some wards and polling units, it was not so in most others. Issues like operational irregularities, logistics challenges, intimidation, violence, suspected compromise and poor network needed to transmit collated results from the BVAS machines to the INEC Result Viewing (IReV) portal affected the exercise,” the statement reads.
“Nigeria is the only country we have. We must defend our land as we still believe in the promises she holds,” it added.
The coalition decried the spate of violence that characterized the February 25 presidential and National Assembly elections in parts of the country.
