2023: Popular presidential candidate calls for postponement of election

A factional presidential candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), Ebiti Ndok-Jegede has called for the postponement of the presidential election scheduled to hold on Saturday, February 25, 2023.

She called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), citing the scarcity of new naira notes and fuel in the country as reasons.

She made this appeal in Abuja, the nation’s capital, stressing that the people of the country would be denied the chance to cast their votes due to the challenges.

She further revealed that the scarcity of money would make it easy for voters to e induced with money on election day.

Ndok-Jegede said, “We need to create a level playing field for all concerned men, women and youth to participate in this election.

“Scarcity of Naira notes will disenfranchise women from being a major league player in this election.

“The election umpire that is the Independent National Electoral Commission has not made it easy either.

“At this juncture, we are calling on patriotic Nigerians who are ready and willing to contribute their own culture to the true development of this beautiful nation to step forward and let us jointly move Nigeria to greatness without rancour both in peace and unity.

“It is time for us to stand in brotherhood and support the call for a shift in the date of the elections to a better time before May 29.

“People cannot travel to vote without no money. So, I say this what is going on as a subtle way to rig elections if people don’t go out what’s going to be the outcome of the election? They just give us any figure. Is that what we’re waiting for? Is that what Nigeria is looking for? No.

“We are looking for something credible and a better election this time around will strengthen our democracy and you will agree with me. Nigeria must not fall. Nigeria must not fail.

“I also want to seize this opportunity to appeal to His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari to assess the prevailing circumstances involving the candidates, the prevailing environment and circumstances.

“Now we are looking for credible candidates. We are looking for an enabling environment to make the environment conducive for this election.

“Nigeria must stand strong among the comity of nations. And we can jointly do it together. It is time. Now is the time. We must not miss it. Now is the time. We need to get together.

“All hands on deck. Conscientious and concerned citizens of this nation need to come together and jointly decide which way forward.”
