The Nigerian Bar Association(NBA) has commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on its performance in the governorship and state assembly election held across the country on Saturday.
“INEC officials arrived polling units on time and voting already commenced at 8:30am.
“This appears to be the trend across the nation. NBA equally reported that the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System(BVAS) functioned very well during the election and that voting ended earlier unlike the previous election.”
He said his group’s observers noted pockets of violence in some states including Lagos.
Maikyau commended the conduct of security personnel and party agents during the election, but noted that some polling units were not manned by security agents.
The NBA President assured that his group will continue to update Nigerians as its observers send in reports.
