On Thursday, he issued the warning at an event in Ibadan honoring the late former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi.

Insecurity, according to the former INEC boss, poses a serious threat to the conduct of the general elections in 2023.

He insisted that adequate security was essential for a successful election.

“Unless elections are held in a peaceful and secure environment, the integrity and even legitimacy of the election’s outcome will be called into question,” Jega says.

“As we look forward to the general elections in 2023, there is growing concern that the country’s pervasive insecurity will present a formidable obstacle, if not an obstruction, to those elections.”
