Cross River State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Barrister Mike Igini has said the story of electoral malpractices and lack of trust in the electoral system will begin to change from Cross River State if critical stakeholders like political parties and politicians can do the right thing.
Addressing political party leaders in his office recently, Igini said the business of conducting free, fair and credible elections does not rest on the INEC’s table alone but on all the major stakeholders.
Igini vowed that under his leadership, no INEC official found wanting for either financial inducement or any unethical behavior will go unpunished.
He said INEC Staff will continue to go on periodic training on how to handle election matters stressing that political parties should organize sensitization workshop to educate their members.
The REC promised that electoral transformation in Nigeria will begin from Cross River State due to its present rating.
“I need your support and cooperation to do the right thing because already Cross River State is rated amongst the best States of the federation and Abuja is in a class of its own.
“The Electoral transformation Nigerians are looking for will start from Cross River State if you all give your support”.
