A Nigerian lawyer expressed his opinion that the Federal Government of Nigeria should not be permitting the high degree of military engagement in democratic electoral processes in a story on channels television news. He said that although the Nigerian police should be let to handle the protection of voters on election day, the troops should be kept in the barracks and put on watch.

He said: "The civilian authorities should be left to conduct and carry out fully the electoral processes at all levels. President Buhari should not allow the armed forces in the conduct of the elections.

"Instead of terrorising voters, soldiers should be confined to their barracks and put on the alert. Since the Federal Government has restricted the movement of people throughout the country, the police, and paramilitary forces should be deployed to maintain law and order during the 2023 General Election".
