News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that they identified some flaws in the exercise and asked the Independent National Electoral Commission to modify its processes for an acceptable outcome of the March 11 governorship and House of Assembly polls across states.

The executive director of JPDC, Raymond Aniwafe, said the group deployed 272 observers to the February 25 election. He mentioned that before the election, the body monitored the distribution of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) from December 12, 2022, to February 5, 2023.

The director said the turnout of voters at the polling booths was huge and an improvement on the previous elections. He commended civil society groups and the media for good voter education before the election.

“Most of the flaws of the election were human-induced ones that could be prevented if the regulatory body recruited the right persons and trained them well for the project.
