Stop Appointing INEC Officials - Stakeholders

Stop Appointing INEC Officials - Stakeholders

Stakeholders at a two day constitution review workshop have said that it is important that the president be stripped of the powers to appoint chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission and Resident Electoral Commissioners.

At the South-South geo-political zonal media conference on stakeholders organized by the Democratic Governance for Development Project in collaboration with the Nigerian Union of Journalists, the participants contended that because the constitution saddles the president with the power to appoint chairman of INEC, the commission is not independent of the ruling party.
