Terrorists Could Stop 2023 Elections From Holding – Falae

One time finance minister during Ibrahim Babangida’s military regime Olu Falae expressed fears that the 2023 general elections may not stand because of worsening bandits and Boko Haram attacks.

“I pray that terrorists will allow the election (2023) to take place. Some few days ago, they burnt down the INEC office somewhere in the South-East. They have been doing that for a long time, so we hope the election will even be possible,” he told journalists in Akure.

Mr Falae explained that if the election eventually holds, the outcome may not be credible and acceptable to Nigerians.

He feared worsening insecurity nationwide could prevent the 2023 general elections from being held.

“If during voting, shooting takes place and there are riots, the outcome will not be credible. I am hoping that we will be able to have an election next year,” the ex-minister said.

“We need a president who shows, genuinely, that he is for all Nigerians. He does not just say it. He acts it in all his decision and shows that he cares for all Nigerians,” explained Mr Falae.

“That is what Nigerians want; a fear-minded person. It does not matter where he comes from. After all, whoever is Nigeria’s president must come from one particular family, one particular tribe, and one particular town,” Mr Falae explained. jamb results

He noted: “It is stupid to be sectional as president.”

The Yoruba leader pointed out that a true Nigerian should “know that apart from his people, there are also other tribes that have equal claim to the Nigerian patrimony. If he acts accordingly, Nigerians will hail him.”

“Unfortunately,” said the politician, “most politicians we have now are tribalistic, and they are not exposed at all to still be thinking that they are from Kanuri, Ibo, Fulani, or Yoruba. But if we have a Nigerian who sees all as Nigerians, that is the way out of our problem.”
