A former presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress, Kingsley Moghalu, has criticised the Independent National Electoral Commission, over its conduct of the February 25 presidential election.
Moghalu made this statement via his Twitter handle on Friday, insisting that INEC needs a complete overhaul.
The former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank also questioned the 28% turnout recorded for the election, insisting that it must be interrogated to know why it happened when about 87 million voters collected their Permanent Voters Cards.
He tweeted, “Without prejudice to whoever would have won, @inecnigeria ‘s performance was woeful. The institution and election management in Nigeria need a complete overhaul. Elections must be made logistically efficient and transparent.
“The 28% turnout, being even lower than the 34% of the 2019 election, is deeply disappointing. This phenomenon needs a separate interrogation to understand why it happened when 87 million voters collected their PVCs. Such voter turnout levels undermine the meaning of democracy.”
