The meeting which was held at the state INEC headquarters in Uyo had in attendance representatives of all political parties contesting the elections.

Those present included chairmen and executives of political parties, governorship candidates, House of Assembly candidates and other political stakeholders in the state.

Meanwhile, It will be recalled that Niaja News had reported that former Governor of Akwa Ibom State and serving Senator, Godswill Akpabio, attributed the victory behind the presidential election to the All Progressives Congress (APC) to his defection to the party from the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party( PDP).

Mr. Igini who spoke on the necessity for the gathering said it was necessary to draw the attention of stakeholders to some new innovations put in place by the commission to guarantee credible elections next Saturday.

He also gave the assurance that the commission will work hard to eliminate lapses noticed during the February 23 presidential and National Assembly elections.
