“UK introduced Nigeria to election rigging” – Former INEC REC makes revelation

In a recent revelation, the former Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) for Akwa Ibom State under the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mike Igini, has alleged that the United Kingdom (UK) introduced Nigeria to election rigging.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Igini made this assertion during an appearance on Arise Television’s Morning Show program on Friday, where he fielded questions about the conduct of the recently concluded 2023 general elections.

Expressing his concern over the manipulation of the electoral process by politicians, Igini called on the judiciary to put an end to the political shenanigans.

He emphasised the need for free and fair elections in Nigeria, calling on all stakeholders to play their part in ensuring a credible democratic process.

He said, ”What I want Nigerians to know is that whatever we make of this country, that is what it will become. It is clearly in our hands because, in this country, Nigeria, with all the human and material resources, all that’s required is leadership.

”Today, we are now in Court over the election that has been conducted. It should be noted that the United Kingdom, UK, that today is one of the countries that our people are going to; in short, after Nigeria, they go to the UK. It should be noted that even the UK, which introduced Nigeria to election rigging for a period of 99 years, almost a hundred years, had no post-election adjudication in the United Kingdom.”
