The candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 presidential election, Omoyele Sowore, says it has become obvious that there will never be free, fair and credible elections in Nigeria.
Sowore said this on Sunday morning while reacting to the conduct of the off-cycle governorship elections in Imo, Bayelsa and Kogi states on Saturday.
According to him, 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 also described the electoral body, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), as the worst electoral saboteur in Nigeria, followed by state electoral commissions and security agencies.
He said that the commissions and the security agencies are programmed to ensure that the votes of Nigerians do not count anymore, hence, the only option left for Nigeria and Nigerians is a revolution.
Sowore, who is the conveyer of #RevolutionNow 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.
“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. We need #RevolutionNow!”
