2023: Nigerians Not Sure Elections Will Hold On Saturday – Falana Says



A senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falana, has said there’s no guarantee that Nigeria is prepared for the general election.

Falana stated this while appearing on Arise TV programme on Tuesday.

The scarcity of naira notes following the redesign of he N200, N500, and N1000 notes, coupled with the scarcity of petrol, has led to protests in some parts of the country.

There also concerns whether the presidential and governorship elections on February 25 and March 11, will go on as scheduled.

However, Falana says, “by now, Nigerians should be fully prepared for the election.

“But unfortunately, there is no indication, and people are still saying will the election hold or not.

“Even the armed forces and the NSA spoke about the effect of cash scarcity on counter-insurgency campaigns.

“And for the masses, it is only when you have access to your money that you can be happy and ready for the election,” He maintained..
