The Citizens Advocacy for Social & Economic Rights (CASER) has joined well-meaning Nigerians in commending President Muhammadu Buhari led federal government over the successful conduct of the Edo State governorship election recently.
Executive Director, CASER, Barrister Frank Tietie in a press statement said President Buhari did not allow the abuse and misuse of security agents during the election.
According to Barr. Tietie, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has by the adherence to the electoral guidelines it has set, also increased its own integrity rating as a truly independent and impartial electoral umpire.
“The whole exercise in the recent Edo election, marks a turning point and a new page for Nigeria’s erstwhile electoral processes that have been characterized with malpractices and violence.
“With the process and outcome of the Edo gubernatorial election, hope has just raised that Nigeria as a country can one day have a near perfect electoral system,” he said.
