Most Nigerians might not turn up for the guber election because they’ve lost faith in INEC- Opunabo

Opunabo Inko-Tariah, a political analyst and former aide to Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said that the widespread irregularities which marred the February 25th presidential election might affect the the turn out for the March 11 governorship election.

Speaking in an interview on News Central TV, Opunabo said most Nigerians might not turn up because they’ve lost faith in the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

His words, "to be honest with you, there is bewildering frustration and bitterness in the land. I believe that a lot of persons are going to be daunted because of the rigging that took place in the presidential election. I’m not even bothered about whoever won that election, I’m bothered about the process. And so before the election, Prof Mahmoud Yakubu made all kinds of promises that rekindles hope of Nigerians that the election was going to be free, fair, credible and transparent. Only for Nigerians to realise that those are just high blood pressure, deceptive rhetorics and anomaly of concrete performance.

My dear brother I must tell you, most Nigerians might not turn up for the forthcoming guber election because they’ve lost faith in INEC. Rigging is a cancer that must be expunged from our politics if our democratic rights must be realised.”
