Kingsley Wali, a good governance activist, stated at the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) conference that Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, and Kashim Shettima violated electoral law.
According to Wali, the vice presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party (LP), and All Progressives Congress (APC) turned the event into a campaign ground.
Borno Central Senator Shettima represented APC flagbearer Bola Tinubu at the NBA gathering earlier this week in Lagos.

He told reporters that it was shocking to see politicians running for office in Nigeria while the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had yet to lift the ban on electioneering.
The Convener of Unity House Foundation (UHF) stated that a man who is lawless is unlikely to offer quality service to the people.
“If you don’t have regard for the laws, I don’t know how to expect that you are not going to circumvent the law if you become President, Governor or whatever.”
Wali said the ban on campaign will be lifted on September 28 but those who want to get into power “have started very badly by disobeying the laws.”
Wali lamented that it was not done at an inconsequential gathering, but on a platform the international community watched.
