Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has challenged its Public Affairs Officers to be proactive and ensure proper management of information as the Commission aims to constantly communicate its policies, plans and actions with stakeholders.
INEC National Commissioner and Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee, IVEC, Prince Solomon A. Soyebi, handed the charge while declaring open the INEC Communication Policy/Strategy Review Workshop held in Abuja.
Soyebi noted that there was need to revive communication activities, especially in the state offices, which he observed had gone down to the lowest ebb, compared to the recent past where Information Officers had worked in Unison to achieve the Commission’s goals.
He expressed optimism that the workshop which was aimed to review the Commission’s Communication Policy, would impact positively on INEC’s communication activities.
He called on participants who were drawn from the states and the headquarters to equip themselves with the knowledge and skills provided by the workshop and share ideas on how best to improve the Commission’s Communication Policy.
The Workshop was put together with the support of the International Foundation for Electoral Systems, IFES.
