Mediation as a Tool for Resolving Pre and Post Election Disputes only

As the Nigerian elections come to a close, the Institute of Chartered Mediators and Conciliators (ICMC) urges aggrieved candidates and Nigerians to utilize Mediation, Conciliation and other Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms to resolve post election disputes.

According to the President of the Institute, Chief Emeka J.P. Obegolu, FICMC, FCIArb (UK), Mediation and other mechanisms within the Alternative Dispute Resolution spectrum should be given the opportunity to resolve violence and disputes arising from electoral activities.

Such opportunities are available within the Institute of Chartered Mediators and Conciliators and the Electoral Alternative Dispute Resolution Directorate of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

However, Emeka Obegolu, on behalf of the Institute, emphasizes that while Mediation is suitable for resolving pre and post election crises, once a winner has been declared by INEC, ONLY an election tribunal can reverse such a declaration.
