The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has again stressed its commitment to sustaining its partnership with University Vice Chancellors and other Academics in the country, saying their inclusion in the electoral process is vital to the sustenance of democracy in the country.

Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Mr Rotimi Oyekanmi, in a statement Tuesday night in Abuja said the commission’s Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, made the commitment at the Post 2019 General Election Review Retreat with Collation and Returning Officers in Lagos.

According to the chairman, “the current partnership between INEC and the Universities must be sustained because it is vital for the conduct of free, fair and credible elections in Nigeria.”

Yakubu observed that the Commission was under obligation to thank the Vice Chancellors that served as State Collation Officers for the Presidential Election and Returning Officers for the Governorship elections for their immense services to the nation.
