Speaking at a one day workshop on electoral peportage, Risqua said the electoral offences commission would go a long way in checking  electoral  irregularities, including violence and snatching of ballot boxes.

He explained that INEC is usually too involved with ensuring the successful conduct of the elections to undertake additional assignments such as the arrest and prosecution of violators of electoral laws of the land.

He appealed to the media to exercise restrain in the discharge of  their constitutional functions as well as assist in recording evidences of electoral violations and breaches saying the authorities were very determined to check these excesses during the 2023 general elections.
