Paschal Emeka, Abuja

The Federal Government has reacted to a viral comment attributed to an official of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, that the 2023 general elections face a serious threat of cancellation as a result of insecurity in various parts of the country.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed stated the position of the Federal Government on Tuesday at the PMB Administration Scorecard Series (2015-2023).

Recall that the Scorecard Series was launched on October, 2022, to massively showcase the achievements of the Buhari Administration.

“The position of the Federal Government remains that the 2023 elections will be held as planned. Nothing has happened to change that position,” Lai Mohammed said.

“We are aware that INEC is working with the security agencies to ensure that the elections are successfully held across the country.

“The security agencies have also continued to assure Nigerians that they are working tirelessly to ensure that the elections are held in a peaceful atmosphere. Therefore, there is no cause for alarm.”
