A well-known observer group, YIAGA AFRICA Watching The Vote, WTV, recently revealed that the Presidential and National Assembly elections that happened on Saturday was not a better exercise than the one Nigerians partook in 4 years ago.
Disclosing its research done on the conduct of the election at a press conference in Abuja, yesterday, the group concluded that the country missed a massive opportunity to improve on the election that chased GEJ as it was blemished with lots of violence and killings.
“Nigeria missed an opportunity to improve the quality of its elections. These were not the elections Nigerians wanted; they were not the elections Nigerians expected; and,most importantly, they were not the elections Nigerians deserve. Our commission must improve its capacity to deliver credible elections and our political parties must play according to the rules.”
