In Africa, particularly in Nigeria, election as a means of electing a candidate of choice has become in issue of acrimony often resulting in violence, killing, kidnapping and all sorts of vices. Inability to conduct free and fair election by institutions whose responsibility it is to do so, among other challenges such as corruption, account for failure to establish and sustain a credible electoral system. This paper explores institutions with the responsibility to administer elections in Nigeria and posits that proper management is core to the success of any elections and reduction of vices during and post elections.
