Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) have met to review the outcome of the report of the joint committee set up early in the year on electronic transmission and collation of elections results.
Executive Vice-Chairman, NCC, Professor Umar Danbatta after the meeting with the INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, yesyerday, described the forum “as a huge step toward entrenching free, fair and credible elections in the country’’.
He said the joint committee set up seven months ago by the two agencies had worked hard to produce a document on the basis of which elections could be conducted in a manner conducive, credible and transparent.
