Reactions have been pouring in from political observers and analysts over the release of the 2023 election timetable by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Recall that INEC surprisingly released the timetable on Thursday, October 15.

In a reaction to the released timetable, ex-senator, Shehu Sani, said that the early release of the timetable will have its toll on governance.

In a Twitter post on his page on Thursday, Sani said that INEC’s release of the 2023 elections timetable will distract governance.

He said that the timetable has the potential of distracting the leadership from carrying out its primary function of governance.

Sani also raised concerns that the timetable will kindle the embers of electioneering campaigns.

He tweeted: “The release of the 2023 elections timetable by INEC will distract governance and no amount of warnings will stop early electioneering campaigns.”

Recall that INEC announced that the next presidential election would be held on February 18, 2023. Speaking on Thursday, October 15, the electoral commission’s chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, made this known while addressing pressmen during a media briefing in Abuja.

Yakubu also revealed that the country has 855 days to the next general election.
