Nigerian rapper, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz has expressed concerns over the conduct of the presidential elections stating that the INEC Boss was ill-prepared to supervise the nation’s polls.
While speaking on News Central’s Breakfast Central, Falz shared his harrowing experience while trying to vote during the presidential elections.
He added that unless security agencies allay fears of violence and deploy appropriately to flashpoints across the country, many young voters may stay away from voting in the gubernatorial election slated for March 11, 2023.
Falz said the election “was extremely shambolic, it was terrible, it was a mess…and the INEC Chairman displayed the most embarrassing supervision of election. Having promised the proper use of the BVAS but couldn’t deliver. That was most the most shocking thing for me…this would have been the best possible system for voters in Nigerians, considering it is a hybrid system”
Responding to the INEC chairman’s excuse of poor training and glitches of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS), Falz rejected such as bland saying, “It is incredibly difficult to agree with the INEC Boss…We have a huge population of tech-savvy young Nigerians who could have helped when the electoral body experienced cyber-attacks. Not to mention the over N300 Billion budget set aside for the elections”
He added that the reason for amending the electoral act was to ease the process, giving the chairman of INEC more guidelines and regulations to make the process smooth. Mahmood Yakubu made the rules himself and contradicted himself by not announcing the results in real-time. Watch
