Presidential Election: NBA Gives INEC “Excellence” Mark

The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), has said that the Independent National Electoral Commission has “delivered and performed well” during the Presidential and National Assembly Elections held across Nigeria last Saturday, February 25..

The President of the Association, Yakubu Maikyau (SAN), on Channels TV programme today, March 5, insisted that the elections went well with people coming out to express their franchise.

“I will say that the elections went well. Those who came out were happy to express their franchise.

“There were challenges, definitely. There were some infractions, some of them actually constituted electoral offences but on the whole, I will score INEC as having performed maybe about 78, 80 percent in the delivery of these elections.

“That will be an A for every exam. Notwithstanding, all the things that happened we are not ignoring.”

The NBA President advised the electoral body to identify the lapses in the elections to avoid a recurring experience in the March 11 state governorship State Houses of Assembly elections.

“That is why we are admonishing and advising INEC and recommending to INEC that in those areas where we saw lapses in the election held on the 25th February 2023, deliberate efforts must be taken to make sure that those lapses did not occur again in the elections that are coming up on the 11th March.

“Because when these lapses happened, it impacted on the confidence of the public in the process.”
