2023 General Elections May Not Hold – Jega
The former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Attahiru Jega, has warned that the 2023 general elections may not hold.
Jega gave this warning while lamenting the state of insecurity in Nigeria, adding that election may not hold if insecurity is not tackled.
The former INEC Chairman stated this at an event in honour of the late former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, in Ibadan on Thursday.
Jega further stated that adequate security across the country is key to an acceptable electoral process.
He said, “Unless elections are conducted in an environment that is peaceful and secure, its integrity and even the legitimacy of the outcome of that election will be questioned.
“As we look forward to the 2023 general elections, there is increasing apprehension that the pervasive insecurity situation in the country may present a formidable obstacle if not an obstruction to that election.
