The Independent National Electoral Commission has a big burden on its hands, to tame the antics of politicians and their desperation, especially the dominant political parties, says Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa.
The Lagos based lawyer and a known Rights Activist, Ebu-Olu Adegboruwa, made this statement on Wednesday following the announcement of 2019 General Presidential and House of Assembly elections results by the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC).
According to Adegboruwa, “The crude quest for power across the divide is simply sickening.
“It may be too early to comment on the February 23 elections in view of the pending Governorship and House of Assembly elections slated for March 9. Nonetheless, INEC must rise to the occasion to leverage on this past exercise to improve on the coming ones.
He also said “An must also be made to all concerned to embrace due process of law in all actions connected with the elections. INEC having declared winners for the elections, no matter the merits or otherwise, the options available should be exhausted through due process of law.
“We have no choice than that noble option, in the interest of our dear nation.
“If we can conduct the March 9 elections without shedding the blood of any Nigerian, then we would have fulfilled the lofty expectations of our heroes past.”
