He said that the commission had no reason to feel that anything would stop the conduct of the election on Feb 23.

The INEC boss said the commission has developed a six-point agenda of what needed to be done to ensure the success of the election

“We believe that as a prayerful nation the act of God has been assuaged and that things will go right, we have no reason to feel that anything will go wrong.

“We have received all the materials, they have been checked, audited people have been informed, party agents have gone there to check,” he said.
