Furtherance to its preparation for the council polls of December 12, the Kogi State Independent Electoral Commission (KOSIEC) on Wednesday 18 November, organised a sensitisation programme for its electoral members to further broaden their knowledge on the conduct of successful local government election.
In his lecture, the Director of Planning and Research at the Benue State Independent Electoral Commission, Mr. Ikye Dodo Terlumum exposed the members to the various ways of identifying and curbing security and logistics challenges during election.
He advised the Commission on early release of materials to forestall any delay in the electoral process, noting that the riverine terrain and long distance of some LGAs from the state headquarters should be considered.
He also counseled the Commission members on dialoguing more with political party stakeholders, Electoral Officers and Returning Officers, whom he described as foot soldiers of council elections, to emerge successful.
