Independent National Electoral Commission commences training of its Resident Electoral Commissioners


Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Monday, began training of its Resident Electoral Commissioners and other senior officials across the five states in the South-South hinging its focus on its Election Monitoring and Support Centre (EMSC).

The two day workshop is being held in Benin City, Edo state.

The Acting Director, Planning and Monitoring of INEC, Jude Okwuonu said the EMSC is an integral part of the Commission’s preparation for the 2019 election.

He said the training is to sensitize participants on their roles in the management of the EMSC structure at the state levels.

In its goodwill message, the European Centre for Electoral Support (ECES) through its Project Coordinator, Rudolf Elbling said the training with support from the European Union would be held in all the geo-political zones across the country.
