Insecurity May Affect The Conduction of 2023 General Election Says CD


The Campaign for Democracy and Human Rights Advocacy (CD) has expressed fears that the heightened insecurity in some parts of the state and the country general could hinder the smooth conduct of the 2023 general elections.

The Chairman of Niger State Chapter of the CD, Mr. Abdullahi Jabi, said during an event in Minna to mark this year’s Democracy Day that fears of attacks by insurgents could also lead to voters’ apathy.

Jabi said: “CD wants to say emphatically that in the area of security Nigerians are passing through turbulent times with security challenges, food insecurity, disruptions of goods, socio economic challenges, poverty and hunger

“It is my opinion that insecurity if not properly checked and addressed by the Federal Government of Nigeria may likely affect the conduct of the 2023 general election due to voter apathy and massive migration of people to safer areas to avoid danger and risks to their lives.”

He, however, counseled the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure that it provided peaceful environment and build the confidence of the electorates to participate in the election.

The Chairman, Board of Trustees of North Central Zone of CD, Mr. Murtala Ibrahim Agboola, in an address congratulated all the registered political parties for the peaceful conduct of their  primaries especially the presidential primaries saying that “this shows that our democracy is maturing and on course.”

Agboola appealed to politicians and party members to go about their campaigns and debates with decorum and devoid of character assassination and mudslinging.

Prominent members of the society, including some journalists, were honoured at the event for their contribution to the growth of democracy.
