The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday joined the growing list of governments and entities making the yearly promises to Nigerian workers, promising to implement electoral reforms.
This is coming at a time when a large section of the education sector is on strike.
In a statement signed by its Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, the Commission pledged its commitment to Nigerian workers by ensuring that it implements reforms of the electoral system.
The statement reads in part “It is an established fact that Nigerian workers have contributed immensely and tirelessly to our country’s stability and economic development over the years despite the myriad of challenges.
“The Commission appreciates the support and understanding it has received and continues to receive from workers as it implements reforms of the electoral system, such as the expansion of voter access to polling units, continuous voter registration, deployment of appropriate technology, the conduct of numerous off-cycle elections, bye-elections and the on-going preparations for the 2023 General Election.
“As we collectively reflect on sustainable measures to improve the welfare and professional capacity of Nigerian Workers, the Commission wishes to assure the nation that we will spare no effort in ensuring that elections conducted by us continue to get better, freer, fairer, more credible and more inclusive.
“Happy Workers’ Day.”
