The standpoint of the INEC was detailed in a comprehensive 526-page report titled ‘The 2023 General Election Report’.

The commission took note of the challenges faced during the elections, which included the currency swap conducted by the Central Bank of Nigeria, the attacks on INEC facilities, and a few minor issues.

The National Commissioner and Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee, Sam Olumekun, highlighted the election as distinctive due to its adherence to the schedule, incorporation of 80 new provisions in the Electoral Act, and the implementation of new technologies that streamlined the voting process.
