Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, said it is working with the National Assembly to review the Electoral Act, for improved electoral processes.
Acting Chairman of INEC, Amina Zakari, while receiving some Foreign Defence Attaches with the Defence Intelligence Agency at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja, yesterday, said in the course of carrying out its assignment, INEC had noticed some lapses in the Electoral Act which needs to be reviewed.
She said while INEC has recommended certain reviews to the National Assembly, it also reminded them of the need to review those clauses to improve the electoral process.
“We will continuously try to improve the electoral process through legal reviews. Election laws are not static; they are dynamic. You have to improve on them, especially when something comes up like the issue of Diaspora and electronic voting. These are issues that require review and we will keep recommending them to the National Assembly.”
Chief of Defence Intelligence Agency, Monday Morgan, said the foreign attachés were at the commission in recognition of its role in national development, especially in the promotion of democracy.
Morgan, represented by Everest Okoro, leader of the delegation, said the visit of the foreign attaché was due to the accolades that followed the 2015 general election.
