INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

          The Independent National Electoral Commission-INEC is the body that is charged with the responsibility of conducting the 2011 general election in all the 36 states of the federation capital territory.

          The commission is to ensure that elections are conducted in a free and fair manner and to announce the winners of all the elections throughout the federations. It was established to replace the erstwhile electoral body, The National Electoral Commission of Nigeria (NECON). General Abdulsalami Abudakur’s administration established the current INEC, with Justice Ephraim Akpata as the chairman, justice Akpata oversaw the 1999 elections which death of justice Akpata in January 2000, the administration of president Olusegun Obasanjo appointed Able Guobadia to the position, this was confirmed by the senates of the federal republic of Nigeria, Abel Guobadia was responsible for the 2003 general elections, president Obasanjo was re-elected into power for another 4 year term.

          Abel Guobadia, however, retired in June 2005 and was succeeded by Professor Maurice Iwu. Professor was responsible for the 2007 general elections which brought into power the administration of President Musa Yar Adua.

          Professor Iwu vacated the office of chairman on the 8th of June 2010 by Professor Aattahiru Muhammadu Jega, Professor Jega was charged with the conduct of the 2011 general election.

          On the 18th April, 2011, riot broke out in most of the states in the North West, North central and North Eastern geo-political zones of the country shortly after the result of the presidential election that took place on the 16th April, 2011, were declared. The riot was the culmination of a chain of events which started from January 2011 and reached a crescendo after the presidential election results were declared.

          Consequently a presidential panel to invested gate the violence after the 2011 general election was constituted with the following terms of reference:

1)    To investigate the immediate and remote cause of the tide of unrest following the presidential election and make appropriate recommendations on how to prevent future occurrence

2)    To ascertain the number of persons who lost their lives or sustained injuries during the violence.

5)    To examine any other matter incidental or relevant to the unrest and advice government as appropriate.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

          To the presidency which often gave INEC too title money too lake for it to function properly.

          To bickering between the executive and legislative arms of the central government which delayed the passing of the first electoral law since the 1998/99 election

          The chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said nothing could be more unfair than the public tendency to blame his commission for the crises that have bedeviled Nigeria electoral process like the problem over the registration of new political parties register or constituency delimitation which has sparked internecine communal clashes in places like the Niger Delta region.

          In the middle of January of the year 2003, the INEC chairman held on interactive session with top media executives in Lagos, during which he laid the blame for such crisis outside the body itself “there is” he said the erroneous tendency to blame all short comings in the electoral process at the doorstep of the electoral commission “the responsibility for these shortcomings, he said, can be traced mainly.
