These, according to him, include ever rising cost of voter registration and the compilation of a credible voters’ register, recruitment, training of electoral officials and provision of electoral logistics, as well as election security, civic and voter education, procurement of sensitive and non-sensitive materials, deployment of electoral technology, undertaking regular engagement with stakeholders and handling of pre-election and post-election litigation.

“The objective is for Election Management Bodies in our sub-region to share experience, expertise and even pool resources with a view to ensuring best practice through peer review.
It is also in order to reduce the cost of conducting elections among our member-States.”

Yakubu commended ECOWAS for the support to ECONEC and for championing the idea of pooling electoral resources together in support of the electoral process in the region.
