Falana Gives Reasons Why 2023 Elections May Not Hold, See Why
The Human Rights and a constitutional lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) has dropped a piece of shocking information concerning the 2023 elections.
The 2023 elections are in jeopardy; this is according to Femi Falana, who explained that there is a chance the elections may not hold.
Falana based his prediction on the insecurity in the country, saying some parts of the country are experiencing what he described as the civil war.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) said this on Thursday while speaking at the southwest constitution review public hearing in Lagos.
Falana added that Nigeria is on the brink of collapse and asked the ruling class to advise President Muhammadu Buhari on what he must do to “quickly reclaim this country”.
Indeed, Nigeria has been battling a spike in violence in recent months.
In the north, residents remain at the mercy of Boko Haram insurgents and bandits while security agencies and government facilities are increasingly becoming targets of attacks by gunmen in the south.
The offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) have not been spared — seven of them have so far been razed this year.
Falana said there must be peace and stability in the country for the ongoing constitutional amendment to be meaningful.
“Time is not on the side of the ruling class, as we are gathered here, in some parts of the country — south-east, north-east, north-west — a civil war is going on. In fact, in some parts of the country, the 2023 elections are already in jeopardy,” he said.
“INEC offices are being burnt, police stations are being burnt. In that kind of atmosphere, we cannot pretend that there is political stability in our country.
“I, therefore, plead with you when you return to Abuja, invite the president and ask him what we can do very quickly to reclaim this country, which currently is on the verge of collapse.
