The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Saturday in Kogi promised to bequeath peaceful, credible, free and fair elections in 2023.

INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner in Kogi, Hale Longpet, made the vow during a visit to the Obano of Kabba, His Royal Highness, Oba Dele Owiniyi-Otitoleke.

This was contained in a statement issued on Saturday by Haruna Sule-Haliru, Head of Voters Education and Publicity Department at the INEC office in Kogi.

“I and my management staff are here in your palace to solicit for your cooperation and support to INEC to ensure that the 2023 elections are devoid of any uncertainty.

“Our hope is that you will help to talk to your subjects to eschew violence, thuggery and any form of conduct that could undermine the desired peaceful, free, fair and credible elections in Kogi,” he said.

He commended the fatherly role the Obano had been playing at piloting the affairs of his people, “which is so visible by the level of development so far recorded in your kingdom”.

Responding, Oba Owiniyi-Otitoleke, thanked the commissioner for the visit and pledged to support INEC towards a peaceful and successful 2023 general elections.
