For her contribution at a policy dialogue organised by the West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI), a participant, Mrs Eunice Akweley-Roberts, suggested that public education on elections should be handled by the Electoral Commission (EC) itself and not by the National Commission on Civil Education (NCCE).

"Some argue that it should be the responsibility of the NCCE, but the EC knows its work better and so it is in a better position to educate the masses on it,” she said.  

Mrs Akweley-Roberts contended that considering the ongoing education on the district-level elections, “I think that there is more that can be done,” to inform the electorate about the district assembly and unit committee polls.
