Myth Of Political Structure Has Been Destroyed–Falana




Femi Falana, has stated that being a money bag is no longer a prerequisite to contest an election in Nigeria.

He also stated that the myth of political structure has been destroyed.

The Human rights lawyer stated this while listing the positives of 2023 elections.

According to Falana, in  spite of the challenges related to the February 25 presidential and National Assembly elections, the myth of political structure has been destroyed.

“There are some positive developments that were recorded. For instance, the myth of these political structures has been destroyed whereby people have shown that we are the structure, and the people are the structure ultimately,” he told Channels Television’s Politics on Monday, March 13.

“Secondly, young people have also shown this time around that we are going to determine the future of our country. Thirdly, you no longer have to be a moneybag to contest elections in Nigeria. Another development is that whereas the Senate chamber has been converted to a resting home for former governors; this time around, many of the governors lost their seats, they lost in the election and so they won’t be able to go back to the national assembly.

“The other development is that sitting governors and sitting president could not win their states for their political parties. So, in spite of the challenges, a number of positive developments have been recorded by our country, and of course, I think the most significant is the use of BVAS for accreditation. It has improved the accreditation of voters,” Falana said.

He lamented the inability of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to upload results to their central server electronically in real-time as they promised ahead of the elections but said that after postponing the governorship and state assembly elections by one week, no excuse will be entertained again by Nigerians.
