INEC Chairman To Begin Second Tenure After Taking Oath

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu is set to continue in his role for another tenure. 

This came after he took an oath of office for his second tenure as INEC chairman. 

He took the oath before President Muhammadu Buhari at the commencement of the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Speaking to State House correspondents after the ceremony, Prof. Yakubu said plans for the 2023 general elections are already in motion. 

According to him,  "We have clearly demonstrated in recent elections that elections are getting better and they will continue to get better.

"The National Assembly is holding a public hearing on the amendment of the electoral legal framework. This is important and this time around, working with the National Assembly, we will ensure a speedy passage of the amendment bill and once it is assented to, it will help us enormously in confronting the challenges ahead.

"Without our regulations and guidelines, we cannot conclude work on the manual for the training of ad-hoc staff for the elections," he added.
