The theme of the conference and Induction ceremony is ‘Electoral Risk Management’ being considered timely by speakers and commentators at the event with consideration to the conduct of the forthcoming general election next year.
Inspite of the poll outcome, there is an interconnectivity between the three risks in the poll being responsible for the current situation in the country with one leading to the other or one being the cause of the other.
Though political/election came second, experts have said that it occupies the center and the cause of the others. The submission is that it is the political system and election process that produces leadership. Failure of leadership system or structure is responsible for insecurity in the country.
