VIDEO: Why 2023 Election Is The Worst In Nigeria's History �

The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has called the 2023 election the worst in the nation's history.

During an appearance on Channels TV's 'Sunrise Daily' on Thursday, the former governor cited reasons to back his stance, emphasizing that the Electoral Act of 2022 was ignored.

According to Obi, the law gave so much hope to Nigerians when it was passed as it addressed the loopholes and difficulties plaguing Nigerian elections.

He stated the investment in technology to make the process seamless was another factor that encouraged a lot of citizens.

Obi further stated that everyone harped on the new law and the technology backing it, with the INEC Chairman pledging that the process would be made available for the world to watch.

He added that after all the promises, Mahmood Yakubu and the electoral body failed to meet the minimum requirements.

"Yes, it is the worst because like I said, because of the law; the 2022 law that gave so much hope when it was passed.

"Because all those loopholes and difficulties we used to have were taken care of.

"And then again, we invested in technology, which was supposed to make it seamless...

"Go and look at the speech of the INEC Chairman in Chatham House. Everybody paid so much emphasis on the law and the technology...

"And the chairman of INEC said it will be there for the world to watch, that they can watch it from there...

"When you promise so much and you didn't even meet the minimum requirement...", Obi stated.
