IIndependent National Electoral Commission is set to embark on reforms, including the electoral legal framework, aimed at ensuring that elections in the country are credible.
INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, confirmed this when the Chief Observer of the European Union Election Observation Mission, Mariah Arena, presented the EU report on the 2019 general elections to him in his office in Abuja.
Yakubu said as part of the reform process, the Commission would be engaging the leadership of the National Assembly on areas that require legislation.
While that is going on, he said INEC would be implementing other aspects of the reform within its powers, in consultation with critical stakeholders.
Yakubu assured that the internal review of the 2019 general elections being carried out by the Commission would be concluded in the next two months.
