The European Union Election Observation Mission to Nigeria on Tuesday recommended that Nigeria’s electoral Commission ensure real time publication of and access to results in future elections.
The Chief Observer, Barry Andrews made this recommendation when he presented the Observation Mission’s final report on Nigeria’s 2023 General Election.
The media presentation comes just a day after the report was presented to the Chairman of the Commission Professor Mahmood Yakubu.
The report which was presented to the media on Tuesday said the election exposed enduring systemic weaknesses and therefore signal a need for further legal and operational reforms to enhance transparency, inclusiveness and accountability.
Mr. Andrews further recommended that ambiguities in the law must be removed.
He also recommended the establishment of a publicly accountable selection process for INEC members and the punishment of electoral offences.
