2023 Election Faces Cancellation Threat Due To Insecurity — INEC

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Independent National Electoral Commission has raised alarm concerning the increase of insecurity across the country and its effect on the 2023 general elections.

The INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, while speaking during the validation of election security training resources held in Abuja on Monday stated that the forthcoming election faces a serious threat of cancellation should the insecurity across the country fail to improve.

Yakubu who was represented by the Chairman of the Board of Electoral Institute, Abdullahi Zuru, explained that “if the insecurity is not monitored and dealt with decisively, it could ultimately culminate in the cancellation and/or postponement of elections in sufficient constituencies to hinder declaration of election results and precipitate a constitutional crisis”.

The commission, however, pledged that it would do everything necessary to make sure that intensive and extensive security is provided for election personnel, materials and processes.2.5KSo This Happened

Mahmood said: “We all appreciate the fact that election security is vital to democratic consolidation through the provision of enabling environment for the conduct of free, fair, credible and inclusive elections and thus strengthening the electoral process.

“Consequently, in preparations for the 2023 general elections, the commission is not leaving anything to chance in ensuring that intensive and extensive security are provided for election personnel, materials and processes.

“This is particularly significant to the commission given the current insecurity challenges in various parts of the country and the fact that the National Youth Service Corps members constitute the core of the polling unit election officials.

“This must not be allowed to happen and shall not be allowed to happen.

“Therefore, security personnel in particular and all election officials, in general, must be security conscious and alert to unusual activities in their environment and must be fully equipped to deal with any challenge at all times.”
