INEC promises to reduce cost of elections in Nigeria

Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has said it would seek ways to reduce the cost of elections in the country.

According to the commission, the increasing cost of elections in the country is partly due to security and logistical reasons.

At a validation workshop on the study of the cost of elections in West Africa organized by ECOWAS Network of Electoral Commissions, ECONEC, in Abuja, ECONEC, INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, said the study was part of ECONEC’s two-year Work Plan borne out of the serious concern of all electoral commissions in the sub-region about the spiraling cost of conducting elections.
