2023 Election Status Update:

The Lead So Far

The presidential and legislative elections that were held in Nigeria on February 25th, 2023 have been creating buzz and excitement on social media, with individuals going to various platforms to share information and comments. These elections were held on February 25th. The Labour Party, which is being led by Pat Utomi, appears to be making progress, since there have been reports of victory in a number of polling units and collation centers.

Reports show that Peter Obi is in the lead in 17 of Nigeria’s 36 states, including the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, according to the live results compiled by the Labour Party Situation Room. The Labour Party was victorious at the polling unit run by Tinubu on Bourdillon street in Okoyi. The announcement has been met with excitement by followers of the party, who have been encouraging citizens of Nigeria to vote for the party.

Disenfranchisement and Anomalies

There have also been complaints of voter disenfranchisement and anomalies. A group of young people in Yenagoa staged a demonstration in response to what they claim was voter disenfranchisement in yesterday’s elections for the presidency, the senate, and the house of assembly. Young people pleaded with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to act responsibly to forestall an impending crisis.

In spite of these claims, a number of individuals have been praised for the level of commitment they have shown in the electoral process. There have been stories of individuals waiting for hours in the rain to cast their ballots, and a BBN sensation named Tacha has been bringing people together to vote and defend their votes. On social media, users have expressed their admiration for and taken part in celebrations of the people’s unwavering commitment.

On the other side, several contentious characters, such as MC Oluomo and Yahaya Bello have also been referenced in the tweets, which has caused Nigerians to respond in a variety of different ways. Some people have voiced concern about these data’s impact on the electoral process, while others have said such worries are pointless and unwarranted.

On top of that, the hashtag #VisaBanOnWike has been trending on social media, and people are using it to ask for a visa restriction to be placed on Governor Wike as a result of allegations of electoral malpractice. The request for a visa restriction has been received with a range of responses in Nigeria, with some Nigerians maintaining that such a ban would be useless and others expressing their support for the measure.

The presidential and legislative elections in Nigeria have generally resulted in a lot of activity on social media, with residents sharing their ideas, opinions, and experiences with one another. The results of the election are still trickling in, and Nigerians are waiting with bated breath to find out who will emerge victorious.
