He said the body had pledged to involve all stakeholders for the success of the general elections.
According to Ambassador Akeju, the RECs across the federation still “repose an implicit confidence in Professor Jega and the innovations being implemented."
He told journalists in the Oyo State capital during the flag-off of market outreach/road show, presentation of voter education materials in Braille form with people with disabilities and State Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Voter Education and Publicity (NICVEP) meeting.
"Allow me to seize this opportunity to debunk the rumor that Hon. RECs nationwide are poised to invoke a vote of no confidence on the hardworking chairman of the commission, Professor Attahiru Jega. This is a blatant lie”.
On the NICVEP, Ambassador Akeju explained that the establishment of the committee was the resolve of INEC to imbibe and entrench democratic ethos in all classes of Nigerians through sustained voter education and publicity of the principles embedded in the electoral process.
