Former Political Adviser and Country Representative to Uganda, Professor Joel Mudaiwa Abel, on Saturday raised alarm that the coming 2023 general elections is far from being realistic because of all manner of evils committed by Nigerians.
Abel lamented that going by the trend on ground, terrorists and bandits may take over some States, making it difficult for the poor masses to exercise their voting rights.
Professor Joel. a former lecturer in the Department of Political Science, noted that there is no how a country with everyday banditry attacks, killings, stealing of billions of Naira, abduction of human beings and inflation will conduct free and fair elections.
He said the country was a bit better in 2015, as bandits were not too pronounced, yet a sitting president failed the election.
He said already, many Nigerians, especially, the poor masses are tired of politics in Nigeria and are confused as to whom to vote to liberate them from incessant attacks and hunger.
He equally stated that even if there will be elections, they will be hijacked by the ruling class, using all the powers within their reach, to install their preferred candidate.
