Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has said that the legislature is committed to free, fair and credible elections in 2019.
This, he said, during a meeting of the leadership of both chambers of the National Assembly with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman, Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu.
The Speaker, who acknowledged gains recorded during the last election cycle in 2015, urged the electoral umpire to ensure that standards are improved upon.
“I want to reiterate that we are committed to an electoral process that will better our experiences of our 2015 general elections.
“We’ve already set a standard where the world has avowed our electoral process to be fair to a certain degree and we must not go below that standard.”
He pledged the commitment of the National Assembly to enabling INEC achieve this goal through appropriation.
