INEC Brags About Absence Of Electoral Malpractice, Rigging In 2023 Elections

With the signing of the Electoral Act 2022, the Bimodal Voter Registration System, and other stringent measures implemented ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission bragged on Saturday that it had “murdered” and “buried” rigging and other forms of electoral malpractice in the 2023 election.

The commission also expressed confidence that the general elections next year will be free, fair, credible, and free of corruption.

Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, Chairman of INEC, was represented by Chukwuemeke Ugbaoja, Deputy Director, Voter Education Provider, Election Monitoring and Observation, during a breakfast seminar organised by the Christian Men’s Fellowship, St. James’ Anglican Church in Abuja.

The seminar was tagged, ‘Let’s talk Politics 2.0’, with the theme, ‘2023 and beyond: leadership, politics and citizenship engagement’.

Yakubu said, “With the Electoral Act 2022, we have murdered rigging of elections in this country; we have buried it. I want to tell you with all authority that was the greatest thing that has happened to this country.

“There is no way anybody can vote two times in this country again. It is not possible. The machine is there, you bring your voter card, and they match it to the machine because your name and particulars have been configured into that machine.
