Abdullahi Ganduje who is the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has revealed that politicians are the biggest problem in Nigeria’s electoral system. He made this known while receiving the director of election and party monitoring for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Hawa Habibu.
The former Kano state governor went further saying that while insecurity is a huge problem in conducting elections politicians also contribute to the problems affecting the electoral process.
“It is important for INEC to undertake the exercise so that they can obtain the viability of political parties for the sake of planning and records and in conformity with the law.
“I know one of the biggest problems of INEC in conducting elections is insecurity. Everyone will say INEC, but it is the politicians.
“So to understand the rules and regulations of elections to understand what is required to be a civilized politician, our institutions will be educating our people from time to time so that they can abide by the rules, and it will be digital.
“We have also directed that in all our party offices, ranging from wards to local government, zones, and states, basically the officers must be available.”
