To the surprise of many Nigerians, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday, October 15, released the timetable for 2023 general elections.
This move by the electoral agency has sparked a lot of heated reactions and comments by political observers and analysts.
One of those who have aired their views as well as misgiving to this is Shehu Sani, a former federal lawmaker who represented Kaduna Central.
On his Twitter page on Thursday, Sani opined that the early release of the timetable will have its toll on governance
In fact, the former senator claimed that this has the potential of distracting the leadership from carrying out its primary function: governance.
Moreover, he raised concerns that the timetable will kindle the embers of electioneering campaigns.
“The release of the 2023 elections timetable by INEC will distract governance and no amount of warnings will stop early electioneering campaigns.”
