P19, Laws of the Federation, 2004 and secondly, the recent commendable outing in the just concluded Edo governorship election. They called for sustainability and improvement on the Police culture in managing elections, as was evident in Edo State.
” The meeting availed the Police leadership ample opportunity to carry out post-election analysis and general overview of the just concluded Edo State governorship poll, in addition to getting feedback, especially from the Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and Human Rights Community on necessary gains to advance and observe lapses to correct in subsequent elections.
” The IGP, while appreciating the CSOs for their commendable roles in the electioneering processes and their invaluable contributions toward the passage of the Nigeria Police Act, 2020, reassured that the Force will continue to partner the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other stakeholders in election management towards ensuring free, fair, peaceful and credible elections, not only in the Ondo election but also in subsequent elections.”
