2023: Election will hold as planned, says REC Kwara

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has assured Nigerians that the 2023 general elections will hold as planned.

Mallam Attahiru Madami , the Kwara State resident Electoral Commisioner, said this in Ilorin, the state capital at an annual lecture of the National League of Veteran Journalists (NALVEJ), Kwara state council.

He charged Nigerians to be responsible and avoid violence to ensure peaceful polls, while assuring that the commission is fully prepared to sustain peaceful conduct of elections in the state, adding that the state had been recognized for achieving peaceful conduct of elections over the years, especially in 2019.

He assured political parties of unbiased process in the elections in the State.

Madami said that one of the reasons for violence during any election was bias by the umpire.

He also identified presence of adequate security; involving all law enforcement agencies, as measures to achieve peaceful conduct of the elections.

“Let’s sustain the peace in the state.

“Elections can be violent when the umpire is biased. Adequate security should be provided and be civil.”

“INEC has assured that election will hold despite the doubts by some Nigerians. Youths should be admonished to shun violence. Women should do that, especially mothers. We should all preach unity. Violence will take us no where,” he added.
