He urged them to rededicate themselves to genuine service and help Nigeria become a democratically stable and economically viable state.

Former Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has strongly criticized the 2023 general elections in Nigeria, labeling it a “show of shame” marred by fraud allegations and irregularities.

 

In a series of posts, Obi contrasted Nigeria’s election with South Africa’s recent transparent and efficient democratic process.

Obi called for urgent comprehensive electoral reforms to restore faith in Nigeria’s democracy and ensure free, fair, and credible elections.

 

He emphasized the need for Nigeria to learn from South Africa’s example and strive for a better democratic system.
