The Kwara State Independent Electoral Commission (KWASIEC) yesterday commenced a training programme for 141 facilitators that will participate in the conduct of the November 18 local government election in the state.
The electoral body is organising the three-day training programme in collaboration with the International Foundation for Electoral System (IFES).
The facilitators are made up of academics and people from other fields of human endeavours.
Declaring the training open, the Chairman of KWAlSIEC, Dr. Usman Ajidagba, restated the commitment of the commission to conducting free, fair and credible election.
Ajidagba said the facilitators had experience in various fields of human endeavours and expressed optimism that they would be able to subsequently train the other ad-hoc staff for the poll.
Earlier, the representative of the IFES, Mr Array Jah, said the foundation organised the training programme for the facilitators to ensure successful conduct of the election.
Jah said the foundation has been rendering such support to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other state electoral commissions to enhance the conduct of elections in the country.
