Speaking on the issues and challenges that may arise in the forthcoming elections, Ortom said it was important for the Independent National Electoral Commission to remain unbiased and professional.

He maintained citing examples in the just concluded Ekiti and Osun states’ elections, justifying the processes while charging the commission to stick to the rules of engagement in the 2023 general election.

“So long as INEC is as professional and neutral as it was in Osun and Ekiti states, I don’t see the APC winning the elections,” he said.

Ortom said his over 40 years of experience in grassroots politics and even at the state and national levels had shown that the APC cannot win the 2023 polls.
