This emerged from a synergy and strategy meeting between the two agencies at the NOA headquarters in Abuja, at the weekend.
Director General of NOA, Mr. Mike Omeri, disclosed at the meeting that the agency was designing an interface to enable it take election messages to the masses in the languages they speak, read and understand.
He further hinted that NOA had perfected plans to train its staff on election information dissemination, stressing that the agency could not afford a misinformation of the electorate or a distorted feedback on election matters.
He said already, NOA staff in Ekiti and Osun were carrying out community engagement and dialogue sessions for voter sensitization ahead of the coming gubernatorial elections in those states.
Assuring Nigerians of the resolve of government to ensure free and fair elections, Omeri said Nigerians should have no doubt about the 2015 elections. President Goodluck Jonathan, he said, has shown commitment to free and fair elections from the 2011 elections.
Speaking earlier, the leader of INEC delegation to the meeting, the chairman, information and publicity committee of the Commission, Dr. Chris Iyimoga, said the synergy was necessary as INEC considered it proper to liaise with NOA, being a key agency of government involved in information dissemination.
This synergy with NOA, he said, would ensure effective election awareness and publicity towards the 2015 elections.
The INEC Commissioner assured Nigerians that election messages will reach all those that need to be reached as no effort would be spared in curbing voter apathy and improving voter education to ensure the 2015 elections is a remarkable improvement on the 2011 elections.
