Published

on

The National Security Adviser Major General Babagana Monguno (rtd) has said that the ‘growing uncertainty’ over party primaries ahead of the 2023 general elections, has culminated in intense power play “capable of heightening unnecessary political tension across the country”. In his speech at the quarterly meeting of the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) at the INEC Headquarters in Abuja, the NSA stressed the need for security agencies to monitor and profile political actors who are bent on subverting the electoral process. Monguno who was represented by Sanusi Galadima, added that the unguarded utterances of some highly respected individuals and groups has also amplified divisive narratives to the detriment of national security and stability. He said;   “The NSA has noted with utmost concern, the growing uncertainty heralding the conduct of party primaries for 2023 elections.“This is in addition to the unabated spate of violence that threatened the upcoming off cycle gubernatorial elections in Ekiti and Osun States, arising from internal party wranglings, increasing acrimony and bickering amongst political actors as well as the inability of various contending political blocs to amicably resolves differences in line with democratic tenants.“Consequently, the above disturbing development has already culminated in intense power play capable of heightening unnecessary political tension across the country. More worrisome is the unguarded utterances of some highly respected individuals and groups which more often than not amplifies divisive narratives to the detriment of national security and stability.“Accordingly, heads of security and law enforcement agencies have been task to step up close monitoring and profiling of political actors no matter highly placed who exhibit tendencies to subvert the electoral process, even as thugs and their sponsors would equally be trailed for possible arrest and prosecution.“Finally, the NSA, emphasises the need for INEC to enjoin political parties to consistently abide by prescribed rules as outlined in their respective manifestoes. This is to significantly reduce areas of conflict and ensure a peaceful atmosphere for a hitch free off-cycle and general election”.The post Growing uncertainty about 2023 election is disturbing NSA appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
