Chairman of the Kogi Non-Governmental Organisations Network (KONGONET), Victor Adejoh, on Wednesday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to use his second tenure to reorganise and unbundle the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Adejoh, who congratulated the President on his re-election, urged him to revisit and implement the Justice Mohammed Uwais Report on the reform of INEC with a view to implementing it.
The chairman, while addressing newsmen in Lokoja said that the call was necessary against the backdrop of multi-tasking structure of the commission resulting in periodic logistic lapses at election periods.
He further said there was need for establishment of other commissions to perform those different tasks in such manner that they would ensure effectiveness and efficiency, leaving INEC to function optimally with fewer tasks.
