The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has been charged to review its activities in the last general elections in order to be more credible in future elections.
International observer groups including Pan African Women Projects (PAWP), who monitored the just-concluded elections gave the advice at a press conference in Umuahia, Abia State.
Spokesperson of the group, Bontle Matjila, who spoke for the observers, advised
INEC to look into the quality of personnel sent out to the field for election duty as some of them are easily induced by corrupt politicians.
They suggested the use of disciplined religious bodies and organizations with pedigree.
The group also recommended that INEC should increase the duration of training for its ad-hoc staff before every election to enable them gain adequate knowledge in the use of technology for the election.
Pan African Women Projects is an international nongovernmental organization of African women from 54 nations of Africa and the diaspora, with its headquarters in Johannesburg, South Africa.
