President of the NBA Okey Wali (SAN) stated this in his opening remarks at the just concluded NBA NEC meeting which took place in Ado- Ekiti State.
He said insecurity was the greatest challenge facing the nation now
The NBA boss called on INEC to expedite action in putting the necessary structures and plans in place in preparations for the 2015 elections.
According to him, voters’ education must be taken very seriously saying voter apathy is one way of getting the wrong set of persons into public offices.
Okey Wali said the NBA will be collaborating with INEC and National Orientation Agency, in series of enlightenment campaigns.
The citizenry, according to Okey Wali, must be aware of the power of the ballot box, and that they can make all the difference with their votes.
“We must stop the attitude of sitting in the comfort of our homes on election days, only to complain later. This is the time to enter judgment on the activities and actions of politicians,” he said.
He said in a constitutional democracy as ours, “we can no longer continue to witness and condone manipulation of the electoral process by some politicians who do not wish to be bound by the mandate of the people.
“As a country, it has become imperative to get our electoral process right. Failure to conduct free and fair elections not only leads to bad governance, it also creates problems of legitimacy. A leader cannot be properly so called if he lacks legitimacy.”
