As the 2023 general elections draw near and with less than seven months to the end of the tenure of the Buhari-led APC Government, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said with the signing of the Electoral Act, 2022, and the Bimodal Voter Registration System (BVAS) coupled with other strict measures launched by the commission, rigging has been completely murdered ahead of the 2023 general elections.
As reported by Vanguard, the National Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu who was represented by the Deputy Director of voters, Voter Education Provider, and Election Monitoring/Observation, Chukwuemeke Ugbaoja said this at a breakfast seminar, organized by Christian Men’s Fellowship, St. James’ Anglican Church, Asokoro, in Abuja. He said with the Electoral Act 2022, we have murdered the rigging of elections in Nigeria, and we have buried it. I want to tell you with all ears of authority, that this was the greatest thing that has happened to this country. He, therefore, warned political parties and all other stakeholders with ulterior motives during the elections to desist as any suspicious move may attract severe consequences.
Meanwhile, as reported earlier, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has warned that political parties in Nigeria are not allowed to receive campaign and electioneering donations from abroad
