The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) convoked a meeting of the 37 State Collation Officers that participated in the 2023 Presidential Election on Friday.

The meeting with the SCOPEs followed a series of concerns raised by Nigerians over the commission's result management.

The INEC chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, noted that many of the concerns are presently subjects of litigation and could not be broadly discussed.

He, however, stressed that the meeting was called to review and share experiences on the 2023 elections and ways to improve on future polls.

For his part, the chairman of INEC's Planning, Monitoring and Strategic Committee INEC, Professor Rhoda Gumus, said the meeting will identify better ways of election planning and conduct. 

A similar post-election review meeting was held last Wednesday for electoral officers and transport unions. 

INEC has also fixed a review meeting with the media on Wednesday, 26 July.
