Mahmood said that INEC has put in a lot of effort to promote transparency and boost Nigerians’ trust in the handling of election results.
“I can state with certainty that the era of willful manipulation of election outcomes is ended.
2023 Era of election rigging over – INEC. “Yet, we are not resting on our laurels because we are aware that there are many evil individuals out there attempting to undermine the system, and we must always be one step ahead of them. Nevertheless, we stand for electoral fairness.
“We will make sure that Nigerians’ votes are preserved and the only factor in determining who gets to hold office in our democracy,” he said.
He continued by saying that the commission will be using significantly more ad hoc workers than both the police and the military combined for the general election in 2023.
