Following the Senate’s clearance of reappointed Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, the ruling All Progressives Congress APC has set an agenda for the chief electoral umpire, urging him to be unbiased and apolitical.

APC in a statement by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena on Tuesday in Abuja, noted that though Nigeria’s election processes are far from perfect, there are however marked improvements recorded in series of recent elections conducted.

“The task before Prof. Mahmood Yakubu and the election management body he leads is to strive further in being unbiased and apolitical”, APC stated.

The party noted that technological innovations recently introduced and deployed by INEC have greatly improved the credibility and efficiency of the election processes, saying that “we must continue to support and invest in these innovations”.
