Ganduje asserts that Nigeria’s electoral system is primarily plagued by politicians, identifying them as the major challenge.


The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Umar Ganduje, emphasized that politicians pose the most significant challenge to the conduct of elections in Nigeria. Speaking on Wednesday during a meeting with Hawa Habibu, the director of election and party monitoring for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Ganduje acknowledged the pressing issue of insecurity in electoral processes but underscored the role of politicians as a major concern.

Ganduje stressed the importance of INEC’s efforts to assess the viability of political parties for planning and record-keeping in accordance with the law.
