INEC advises journalists and election administrators to uphold professional ethics

The Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu, has advised journalists and election administrators from West African countries to undertake their various responsibilities faithfully, ethically and professionally.

Yakubu gave the advice at the opening of a two-day Media workshop on the reporting of elections in the ECOWAS region in Abuja, organised by ECOWAS Network of Electoral Commissions (ECONEC).

Yakubu, represented by INEC Commissioner, Dr Mustapha Lekki, said not doing so could lead to hard consequences too dire to contemplate, while stressing on the need for media practitioners not to repeat the mistakes of the past.
