Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom state has reconstituted the board of Akwa Ibom Independent Electoral Commission (AKISIEC) for the November 11 local council elections.
Inaugurating the seven-member board on Wednesday in Uyo, the governor said the AKISIEC board is made up of people of proven integrity and experience in public service.
He noted that the AKISIEC chairman, Aniedi Ikoiwak, has had over 10 years of experience in the conduct of elections, having been a Resident Electoral Commissioner in many states.
The governor urged members of the commission to take their assignment seriously as the state was planning to conduct local government council election in November, 2017.
”Much is expected from AKISIEC in respect of the forthcoming local government council election in the state,” Emmanuel said.
