Keep watch over INEC – Utomi charges Nigerians

Pat Utomi, professor of political economy, says Civil Society Organisations, CSOs, and individuals must keep an eye on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to have credible, free and fair elections in 2023.

“This is not about being satisfied or not satisfied. It is a matter of us working together to ensure that that happens. If you look away, something can happen. You blink, something can go wrong. So, it is calling on us, citizens, INEC, and everybody, to keep their eyes on the ball,” he said.

Many Nigerians continue to question INEC’s preparedness to conduct free and fair elections in 2023. Only yesterday Friday, Yakubu Mahmoud, INEC Chairman said that lack of trust in the electoral process is the reason behind the high cost of elections in Nigeria.
