The African Democratic Party (ADC) has expressed concern over plans by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to create additional polling units ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the commission had earlier said that expanding voters’ access to polling units was crucial to voters’ turnout in elections.
However, Nwosu wondered why INEC would create more polling stations in addition to the existing 120,000, in spite of the nation’s economic challenges.
“Is it because INEC is spending from government coffers?” he asked.
“How do we justify this with INEC’s call for additional polling units? he said.
The national chairman said that rather than create additional polling units, the commission should be creative about spending public money.
He said that the quality of elected persons in the country was decreasing “due to a corrupt system”, and urged members of the National Assembly to rise and challenge the occasion.
“Our elections and democracy should not continue to drain the country,” he said.
