Nigeria: No Country Has Perfect Elections - INEC to the U.S

In a response to the reports the U.S on the 2019 general elections, INEC has said that there is no country in the world that has a perfect election. This response was given by Rotimi Oyekanmi, Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman.

It will be recalled that the U.S and other international observers had made some observations that scored the last elections quite low.

The U.S embassy had earlier released a statement where it made its views on the 2019 general elections known. It had said “As long-time friends of Nigeria, we continue to follow closely the ongoing elections. We do not have a preferred party or candidate.

“As noted by many observer groups in their preliminary reports, we too were disappointed by the low voter turnout as well as credible reports of voter intimidation, vote-buying, interference by security forces, and violence in some locations.

“We are saddened by those acts of violence and extend our deepest sympathy to the families of those who lost their lives, including those who worked for the Independent National Electoral Commission and the security services.”

It was while responding to this release that Rotimi Oyekanmi said “As one of our important partners, the Independent National Electoral Commission appreciates the United States’ interest and support for Nigeria’s electoral process.

“However, there is no country in the world where general elections are perfect from the beginning to the end. In our reckoning, coupled with various reports released by local and international observers so far, the 2019 general elections were a success, but by no means perfect.

 “There are lessons to be learnt and there is room for improvement. The commission will continue to do its best to deliver credible elections with the hope that the major players will appreciate the importance of playing by the rules and ultimately accept that no political office is worth the precious life of any human being. All is vanity.”
