Sowore explains how Nigeria lacks capacity to hold credible polls

THE presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 election, Omoyele Sowore, has said that from the conduct of recent elections in Nigeria, it has become obvious that the country is incapable of holding credible elections in Nigeria.

According a report from SaharaReporters, Sowore on Sunday made the observations following Saturday’s conduct of the off-cycle governorship elections in Imo, Bayelsa and Kogi states.

Sowore said that Nigerian leaders do not have the capacity, will and interest to conduct free, fair and credible elections in the country.

He noted that it does not matter whether the election is off-season, general or a rerun, the leadership will mess it up.

He was reported to have described the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), state electoral commissions and security agencies as electoral saboteurs in Nigeria.

He said that the commissions and the security agencies are programmed to ensure that the votes of Nigerians do not count anymore.

Sowore, the conveyer of #RevolutionNow had posted on his X (formerly Twitter) handle, “Nigeria can’t hold free, fair and credible elections-no capacity, no will, no interest-in getting elections done right.

Nigeria can’t hold free, fair and credible elections-no capacity, no will, no interest- in getting elections done right. It doesn’t matter if it is off-season or general election or even bye-election. 

“It doesn’t matter if it is off-season or general election or even bye-election. @inecnigeria is the worst in sabotaging electoral democracy in nigeria, followed by the state electoral commissions, as well as security agencies who are programmed to ensure votes don’t count anymore…!”

SaharaReporters has reported that despite reports of violence, election malpractice, vote-buying and other irregularities reported in Imo, INEC on Sunday declared the governorship candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and incumbent governor, Hope Uzodimma, the winner of the election.
