2023: Even Masquerades Voted, Shame On INEC – Reuben Abati Laments




Former presidential aide and popular broadcaster, Reuben Abati, has berated the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the conduct of the governorship and State houses of Assembly elections.

The former aide to President Goodluck Jonathan, insisted that the Saturday, March 18, 2023 conduct was a burlesque and not elections.

He noted that thugs and touts replaced the electoral body and took over the conduct of the election in many places.

Naija News reports that there were various videos on social media of some voters being intimidated and warned against voting for the party of their choice.


Sharing his displeasure over the situation via Twitter, Abati wrote, “What just happened in Nigeria? An election or a burlesque?

“Even masquerades voted. Touts and thugs replaced the Electoral Commission and took charge. Shame on INEC and the security agencies for turning our country into a comedy station of the world.”
