PRESS BRIEFING BY COALITION OF NATIONAL ELECTION OBSERVERS


Gentlemen of the press, we are here before you this evening to brief you about the just concluded local government election which took place yesterday Saturday 5th of February, 2022 in Kebbi State.


Let me start by commending the Kebbi State Independent Electoral Commission (KESIEC) for providing enabling environment for the smooth conduct of local government election which gave equal opportunity to 18 political parties to participate in polls.


Based on our visit to monitor and observe the election process across the state, I wish to seize this opportunity to commend all stakeholders particularly the security agencies as well as political parties for the orderly manner in which they conducted themselves during the election.


It is gratifying to say that, the turnout of eligible voters is quiet impressive as women and youth came out en-mass to exercise their civic responsibility without any hindrance.

RECOMMENDATIONS are as follows:There should be adequate sensitization for all stakeholders on the electioneering process.Adequate training by KESIEC is required on time for ad-hoc staff who will conduct the election.There is need for more civil societies and NGOs engagement in the sensitization of the electorate across the state.


CONCLUSION In conclusion, we the coalition of National Election Observers adjudged the local government election in Kebbi State as free, fair, transparent and credible with high turnout of voters. 
We therefore call on other States to emulate such credible election in Kebbi State.


 Thank you all for your time.God bless Kebbi State and Nigeria so that democracy will be sustained for development.
