Written by thereachfm on February 25, 2019
The Nigeria Civil Society Situation Room has called for an independent inquiry into what it termed as poor management of the Presidential and National Assembly elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
The Situation Room which is a coalition of over 70 CSOs working in support of credible and transparent elections in Nigeria, described last Saturday’s election as a step back from the 2015 General Election.
In an interim statement released today, the group said it was disappointed by serious lapses observed with the conduct of the Presidential and National Assembly elections, despite initial postponement of the polls on grounds of logistics challenges.
