Nigerians don’t appreciate our efforts, INEC laments

The Independent National Electoral Commission says it is unfortunate that Nigerians do not appreciate the efforts of the commission.

The INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, said this while briefing stakeholders on the reason for the postponement of the general elections which had drawn the ire of Nigerians.

He said between 2015 November when he took over INEC and now, the commission had been able to undertake 195 off-season elections which were successful.

Yakubu said ahead of the postponed elections, the electoral umpire was able to register 14 million new voters, print 421.7 million of ballot papers and 14.28 million Permanent Voter Cards in record time as well as mobilise over one million ad hoc workers which would undertake the elections.
