    The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced a minor re-organisation of its operations and creation of two new departments.

    The announcement was contained in a press statement signed by its National Commissioner and Chairman Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye.

    The commission said the re-organisation and creation of the new departments is part of efforts to strengthen its operation and enhance efficiency as it prepares for major off cycle elections.

    The re-organisation affects its Department of Legal Services, Clearance and Complaints (LSC&CC) and that of Voter Education and Publicity (VEP).

    The Commission has created two (2) departments out of the current Department of Legal Services, Clearance and Complaints (LSC&CC).

    The new arrangement has a Department of Litigation and Prosecution (DL&P) and a Department of Legal Drafting and Clearance (LDCD) created out of the former Department of Legal Services.

    The Commission also approved the de-establishment of the Voter Education, Publicity, Gender and Civil Society Liaison Department (VEP) and in its place established the Voter Education and Publicity Department (VEP), as well as the Gender and Inclusivity Department (GID).

    The changes in the Department of Legal Services, Clearance and Complaints (LSC&CC) are urgent and imperative as the Commission is determined to strengthen its statutory powers of prosecuting electoral offenders.

    The Commission is also determined to proactively communicate its policies and programmes to the Nigerian people and effectively engage and mainstream women’s groups, persons living with disability and other marginalized individuals in the electoral process.
