The Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) has continued to maintain that 2023 general elections will be free and fair.
The Commission reiterated this again on Saturday at the breakfast organised by the Christian Men’s Fellowship, St. James’ Anglican Church in Abuja.
The breakfast event was titled ‘2023 and beyond: leadership, politics and citizenship engagement.’
According to the Commission’s Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, the new Electoral Act 2022, the Bimodal Voter Registration System and other measures put in place will ensure hitch-free elections.
Represented by the Deputy Director, Voter Education Provider, Election Monitoring and Observation, Chukwuemeke Ugbaoja, Mahmood 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.
