He said, “I think that if INEC is guilty of anything in this particular election, it was guilty of over-promising. The Electoral Act gives INEC the power to decide the conduct of the election.
The spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Hakeem Baba-Ahmed has said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) failed to meet up with some expectations of Nigerians.
“INEC came close to saying it was going to conduct an election that’s completely electronic. And that was wrong. They came close to saying they were going to conduct electronic transmission of votes.
“These were not just words. It meant that what a voter decided in a remote village in Yobe would go directly to one place in Abuja. And it seemed like it didn’t happen that way.”
Baba-Ahmed also said that to address electoral malpractice in the country, politicians and INEC must change their ways.
