The leadership of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has expressed dismay over the shoddy handling of the 2023 presidential election materials, saying those involved in the manipulation process must be brought to book.
He said, ‘’Unfortunately, the situation rather than getting better got worse as the day went on with heart wrenching reports from across the nation of vile activities of individuals associated with some parties and utter collusion of INEC officials and security agencies to compromise the election and subvert the will of the people.
“We demand that INEC investigates the activities of one of its officials in the ICT department who may have been responsible for technically jamming the airwaves making it difficult for BVAS results to be transmitted to the Servers. He was a former Commissioner in Lagos State and his name is Femi Odubuyi. It is important to restate that the beauty of democracy is in its participatory transparency which builds a belief amongst the people thus deepens the trust and confidence of the citizenry in its outcomes.’’
“The case of the now dishonourable member of the House of Representatives from Rivers State captured on tape calling for the killing of certain people is not only abhorrent but is a recipe for further violence in our Polity. The threats as captured of Mc Oluomo of the Parks and Gardens in Lagos state warning certain voters to stay away from the Polling centres across the state violates decency and negates the principle of democratic engagement.”
