The 2023 presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of sabotaging the nation’s electoral democracy.
Sowore made the accusation while reacting to the off-cycle elections held in Bayelsa, Kogi and Imo States on Saturday, which were marred by violence and vote-buying.
In a post via his X handle on Sunday, the former presidential candidate said it is sad that Nigeria can’t hold free, fair and credible elections, adding that there is no will or interest in getting elections conducted the right way.
He said INEC, state electoral commissions, and security agencies are sabotaging the nation’s electoral process and have been programmed to ensure votes don’t count anymore.
He wrote: “Nigeria can’t hold free, fair and credible elections 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!”
