Ahead of the general election in 2023, a socio-political organization in the Southeast claimed it had lost faith in Nigeria’s democratic process.

The President-General of the group, Uzodinma Nwala, made this known in a statement signed and issued to journalists during a reception organized in honour of the former presidential aspirant, Sam Ohuabunwa, who contested for President on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP).

The Alaigbo Development Foundation, ADF, stated that it was open about its concerns with the nation’s present electoral system, which is highly monetized.

Nwala criticized the most recent PDP primary election, which took place in May 2022, for being undemocratic and heavily commercialized adding that the group had no hand in what happened at the National Stadium.

He said: “This is a special moment for us, members of the Alaigbo Development Foundation, as we welcome one of our most remarkable leaders, Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa, who has just returned to us after a brutal encounter with the undemocratic mode of selection of candidates for the presidency of the Federation of Nigeria.

“Right from the beginning of the current electoral process, even before and in fact till tomorrow, the ADF never hid her lack of faith in the highly monetised and corrupt electoral system in Nigeria.

“What Ohuabnunwa has undergone is a brutal experience with the Nigerian electoral system, which ADF has consistently referred to as the game only vampires can play.

“ADF is of the view that Ohuabunwa lost in the undemocratic delegates mode of selection in the Nigerian electoral system and that the masses of Nigeria had no hand in what happened at the National Stadium on May 28 and 29, 2022.”
