The NSA who was reacting to reports of state governors implementing policies that prevent the presence of opposition campaign materials in their states, blamed the action on what he called inferiority complex.

Again he cautioned the governors to restrain their thugs in what be describes as a ‘Cabo regime’, reminding that the President Muhammadu Buhari had given clear directives that the 2023 election must be free, fair and credible.

On the persistent attacks on INEC offices particularly after he had promised to deal decisively with the attackers, he reiterates the threat, with an assurance that ‘they will get there’.
