INEC seeks collaboration among ECOWAS electoral bodies

The Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, has called for collaboration among West African states on election management.

Yakubu stated this at an event to commemorate the Liberia’s National Election Commission’s workspace for its staff.

On November 14 2023, Liberians voted in the run-off to elect their president for the next six years. After the election, Joseph Boakai became Liberia’s new leader after his rival and sitting President George Weah conceded to mark a peaceful transfer of power in a region that has recently seen many military coups.

Yakubu, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Rotimi Oyekanmi, on Saturday, expressed heartfelt appreciation to NEC-Liberia for the esteemed honour bestowed upon INEC Nigeria in dedicating the workspace to staff.

“Professor Yakubu underscored the complexity of election management and urged prioritising peer support amid limited resources and escalating election costs,” the statement noted.

The chairperson of NEC Liberia, Davidetta Lansanah, acknowledged the pivotal technical support rendered by INEC Nigeria and Yakubu in establishing the workspace and bolstering the electoral process in Liberia.
