Sowore slams INEC over ‘poor’ conduct of elections



The African Action Congress (AAC) presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, has described Nigeria as a country without the capacity to conduct free and fair elections.

The AAC candidate’s remark might not be unconnected with the reports of violence in some parts of the country, especially in Lagos.

Nigerians had earlier on Saturday slammed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the late arrival of election materials and officials to polling units across the country.

Sowore, who spoke on the development in a tweet on Saturday, said Nigeria lacks the capacity to do anything right.

He wrote: “The Nigerian state lacks the capacity to do anything right – no capacity to conduct elections, no capacity to run an economy, no capacity to run educational institutions, no capacity to do anything right. Now you know!”
