The implication is that parties must conclude their primaries ahead of time, at least six months to election for them to remain within the framework. “So, the National Assembly is aware of this, and we are confident as a commission, that whatever issues are involved relating to why the bill has not be passed would be resolved any moment from now. There are so many provisions in the bill that would impact fundamentally on the electoral process,” Okoye said. Addressing participants, Okoye urged them to, as a matter of importance, assist their resident electoral commissioners to engage the media. “Running away from the media will not make them go away. Engage the media within the ambit of your own ability and expertise. You must not be an orator. You must not be charismatic. Your business is communication and you must communicate in knowledge and humility,” he said. In his remarks, the project coordinator, ECES, Hamza Fassi-Fihri expressed the agency’s commitment to ensuring an efficient and seamless communication system in the nation’s electoral process. ADVERTISEMENT The resident electoral commissioner in charge of Delta State, Monday Udo-Tom expressed optimism that the outcome of the workshop would enhance INEC’s communication and perception management strategy, and also enrich the electoral process.
