A coalition of INEC accredited observer groups has commended the electoral body for the successful conduct of the just concluded rerun election in Adamawa State.
The leader of the group, Dr. Nwambu Gabriel, told reporters in Yola that they were in Adamawa State to provide independent observation of the election which was threatened by a rumoured court order.
The group described the rerun election of Lamurde, Numan and Demsa Federal Constituencies of the state as transparent, free, fair and credible.
They observed that by this election, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has demonstrated a significant improvement in its overall conduct of elections in Nigeria.
The group also noted that the election was keenly contested, stressing that two political parties were dominant in terms of mobilising the electorates.
It recommended the election as a model for other elections in Nigeria, especially the introduction of the simultaneous accreditation and voting which was tested in Southern Ijaw Local Government, Bayelsa State and now Adamawa State.
The Northern Patriotic Front, Centre for Credible Leadership and Citizens Awareness as well as Global Centre for Conscious Living against Corruption made up the coalition.
