2023 elections plagued by fraud, irregularities – Peter Obi

The 2023 Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, on Saturday, said the last general election was plagued with fraud and widespread irregularities.

Obi said the election was marred by glitches despite the enormous money spent to conduct the exercise.

In a series of X posts, Obi wrote: “Nigeria’s 2023 election, with less than 30% of Voter turnout, over 60% of the polling stations starting late, and no diaspora voting, the elections were plagued by allegations of fraud and widespread irregularities, all forms of glitches, despite an enormous expenditure to the tune of about a billion dollars (direct allocation of =N=313 Billion and donor agencies support).

“With about 60% voter turnout, over 90% of polling open on time, allowing diaspora voting, the results and updates were real-time without any form of technical glitches during the election.”

The former Anambra State governor said the controversy trailing Nigeria’s electoral process is a painful reminder of the country’s ongoing struggles with democratic governance.

Obi came third behind his counterpart from the Peoples Democratic Party Atiku Abubakar and President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
