There is no going back on the scheduled 2023 general elections in the country despite the insecurity challenges in the country.
This was disclosed by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC,
Chairman of the electoral body, Mahmood Yakubu, stated this at a public presentation in Abuja on Thursday.
Yakubu also noted that next year’s polls will be governed by the new electoral act.
“Clearly, these are challenging times but we are determined that election must hold in 2023.
“However, this is a shared responsibility. INEC plays a critical role but the commission alone cannot deliver the elections we all desire.
“I, therefore, appeal to all Nigerians to join hands with us in ensuring that we make a success of the process,” Yakubu said.
