Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has tasked Media across the country on fair and objective reportage ahead of the general elections in 2019.
Edo State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Dr. Alex Hart, said this during the public presentation of 50 units of plastic chairs and a public address system to the State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) on Tuesday in Benin City.
The gesture was in fulfillment of pledge earlier made by the electoral umpire to the union.
“I am soliciting for cooperation on balance reporting from the media. Let’s work hard together towards the success of the elections coming on. Help us to report sincerely and correctly according to what you see”, he said.
Responding, the Chairman of NUJ, Comrade Osakue, assured the resident Electoral Commission of cordial relationship ahead of the forthcoming polls.
