2023: “There are no candidates we like” – INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which has no favorite candidates, promised Nigerians yesterday that it will be impartial in the run-up to the general elections in 2023.

At the fourth Prof. Abubakar Momoh Memorial Lecture in Abuja, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman of INEC, provided the assurance.

The lecture’s goal was to inform and sensitize political parties to the new provisions in the Act and the derived subsidiary legislation of the Commission. Its title was “Electoral Act 2022: Imperatives for Political Parties and the 2023 General Election.”

“Let me draw your attention to the fact that the use of electronic devices, including the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System (BVAS), INEC Voter Enrolment Device (IVED), INEC Results in Viewing Portal IRev, and other technological devices, is now legally permissible in the accreditation process for voters, the collation of results, and in the general conduct of elections,” he said.

Please rest assured that these innovations are designed to strengthen the electoral process in our nation, and their successful implementation in the just-concluded governorship elections in the states of Ekiti and Osun is persuasive evidence of their electoral value. We’ll just take additional steps to strengthen their participation in our election.

“Once more, let me reassure you that INEC does not favor any particular party or candidate. We will only make sure that all valid votes are counted and that the only people who determine the winners are the voters.

“I will only remind you that these requirements set forth in the Electoral Act are prerequisites for party development, electoral rule stabilization, and democratic consolidation,” the INEC chair concluded. These are significant national development milestones that Prof. Abubakar campaigned for throughout his life.
