Nigerian Official Says Upcoming Election Will Be Credible
The chairman of Nigeria’s Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says the electoral body is prepared and committed to ensuring February’s vote is free, fair, credible and devoid of violence.
Attahiru Jega said Nigerians will see a significant improvement from previous elections.
“We have introduced many additional new things that can add to the integrity of the electoral process. So I feel confident that we are not adequately prepared to [administer] the 2015 elections and to do it much better than the 2011 general election,” said Jega.
