The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) made the comment saying that despite the humungous amount budgeted for the election, the exercise did not yield to expectations.
“We have seen probably what I consider the worst election in our recent history because of the Electoral law [Act] of 2022 which gave so much hope and the huge expenditure we put into technology,” the former Anambra State governor said.
Obi, who berated the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over its failure to transmit results of the presidential election in real-time via its portal, said the conduct of the 2023 exercise has downgraded the country.
“Whenever there is an election announced globally, what it does is that it uplifts the ratings of that society,” Obi said during the show.
He says the conduct of the presidential election has further dampened the morale of youths who had so much hope in the process.
The LP candidate, who has challenged the declaration of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the exercise, is, however optimistic about getting justice.
Obi said he is on course to getting justice.
