Muhammad Maigari, Minister of Police Affairs, has promised Nigerians that free, fair and credible elections will be held throughout the country..

He states that the activities of criminal elements will not impede the government’s efforts to maintain law and order in the country.

The pledge was given by the Minister while describing his ministry’s achievements in President Muhammadu Buhari’s ongoing media series in Abuja.

Recent attacks on several INEC facilities resulting in the deaths and injuries of some of its officials have raised new questions about the possibility of holding credible elections and the safety of voters in 2023.

The Independent National Electoral Commission and other relevant stakeholders have continued to reassure Nigerians that despite these setbacks, everything is under control.

In the 15th edition of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Scorecard Series, the Minister of Police Affairs conveys the efforts made thus far to ensure the safety of life and property for all Nigerians.

He says the recent attacks by criminal elements across the country will not stop his efforts to enforce law and order before, during and after the 2023 election.

Nigeria’s Information Minister Lai Mohammed also cautions Nigerians to be objective when choosing new leaders and not to empower those who seek to reverse the country’s historic successes.

The Minister of Police Affairs also insisted that calculated attacks by some criminal elements on the facilities of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in some parts of the country would not allow elections.

The minister assured that despite the violence covered up by criminals, the elections scheduled for February 2023 will take place throughout the country as planned.
