Nigeria is geared towards delivering a free, fair, and credible election in 2023.

This was made known at the presentation of the Nigeria country report by the Nigerian delegation at the ongoing Second Ordinary Session of the ECOWAS Parliament in Abuja.

Presenting the Country report, Hon Lynda Ikpeazu, said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reaffirmed its determination to conduct a technology-driven election, that will prevent any form of human errors, which were seemingly the case in the past.

On the security, the lawmaker said the situation is currently stable as revealed in the third quarter security data which shows a decline in security incidents.

On the Economic Situation, the country report revealed that Nigeria is slowly recovering from the combined impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russian-Ukraine war, insecurity and natural disasters.

Ikpeazu in the report said that the redesign of the higher denomination of the Nigerian currency by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) was a bid to mop-up excess cash in circulation, regulate inflation and curtail counterfeiting.

On the Human Rights Situation, the report revealed that the Federal Government is working assiduously to alleviate the human rights situation posed by nagging security incidents and the flooding.
