#BREAKING: #BNNNigeria Reports.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) @inecnigeria in Nigeria has stated that it does not have the authority to force universities to close for the general elections,
...despite pleas from stakeholders for schools to declare holidays for students to collect their Permanent Voter Cards and vote.

The chairman's media aide, Rotimi Oyekanmi, emphasized that each university has a governing council that makes decisions on how the school is run
...and it is not within INEC's power to dictate to universities on when to go on holidays or operate.

He added that private and state universities, which are not funded by the Federal Government,

JUST IN: #BNNNigeria Reports.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied allegations that local leaders, also known as "Baale", are storing Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) and assisting in their distribution. Image
INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Lagos, Mr. Olusegun Agbaje, described the allegations as "obnoxious" and aimed at distracting the commission ahead of the elections.
He stated that he was not aware of any such activity and that journalists should help investigate information to make the system work effectively.

3/14 Sin una perspectiva histórica, sociológica, antropológica y religiosa es difícil entender e intentar solucionar el problema de la #corrupción. No es tema de leyes. Image

10 puntos para entender la #ReformaElectoral propuesta por el Ejecutivo Federal:

1) No desaparece el @INEMexico, solo cambia de nombre a #INEC (Instituto Nacional Electoral y de Consultas) y seguirá siendo un órgano autónomo.
2) Reducir el número de diputados, de 500 a 300.
3) Reducir el número de senadores, de 128 a 96.
4) Los consejeros del #INEC y magistrados del #TEPJF serán propuestos por los tres Poderes de la Unión y elegidos por medio de voto popular en elecciones abiertas.
5) Reducir de 11 a siete el número de consejeros del #INEC.

When we say @inecnigeria seems committed to rigging #NigeriaDecides2023 to order, some party political ppl raise hackles. So, let me try & show what is happening in Imo State, using #SupremeCourtGovernor, @HopeUzodinma's Oru East LGA. Pls stay with me…
Oru East LGA has 10 wards. @inecnigeria created 59 PUs in Oru East. 27 are in 9 wards. 32 new PUs are in the Omuma Ward alone. Guess where @Govhopeuzodinma comes from? Omuma Ward of course
Awo Omama is the biggest community in Oru East. It has 4 wards. @inecnigeria created only 13 new PUs in all of Awo Omamma's 4 wards

I've seen many people try to downplay the likelihood of Obi winning the election in 2023. Their justifications are frequently centered on the fact that "voters" aren't on social media. I did some digging and I here's what I discovered


(This is my personal take)
First, let’s break down the 2019 elections.
Total number of registered voters: 82,344,107
Number of total votes: 28,614,190
The winner (APC) had 15,191,847. (Less than 20% of total). Despite the billions spent on their campaign, the party's "popularity" and
the ever-mentioned "Jagaban" influence.

Many of the voters are presumably "northerners, offline crowds, etc," accounting for less than a quarter of all registered voters.

The majority of non-voters are presumably "uninterested youths" who have

Zamfara in the last 7 days recorded less bloodshed compared to the previous week, but the rate of abductions of persons remains the same. There's however, something to worry about: an emerging evidence of the presence of Ansaru in #Zamfara,
operating across the states in North West #Nigeria right into the border with Niger Republic. #Ansaru is a sect, a breakaway faction of #BokoHaram in 2012. The were responsible for the prison break in Abuja in 2012.
So far, several armed bandits and cattle rustlers are being proselytized into the fold of the Jihadis while erring armed bandits are systematically being taken out by the #Ansaru elements. The Northwest may likely be the new jihadi battle ground in #Nigeria like the Northeast.
