Cancel The March, 28 Presidential Election - Moseindi
A non governmental organization in the Niger Delta, "MOVEMENT FOR THE SURVIVAL OF NIGER DELTA INDIGENES" (MOSEINDI) has called for total cancellation of the March, 28 presidential election in the country for alleged massive riggings in all the geo-political zones of the nation.
Similarly, they have also called for the suspension of the April 11 governorship and state Assembly elections.
In a statement in Port Harcourt, the spokesman of the organization, Mr. Godgift Edigbe said after a thorough observation of the presidential polls, it was glaring that there was massive riggings in all parts of the country.
Mr. Edigbe noted that in some parts of the north, there were underaged votings which were not incidented by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the failure of card reading machines at the various polling units called card readers. He expressed surprise that despite these major lapses, the international community, some politicians and president Jonathan accepted the results.
Mr Edigbe expressed shock and surprise that despite the riggings, Mr. President accepted the results and therefore mortgaging the future of our democracy and the people of Nigeria and the Niger Delta as a whole and that this was totally unacceptable.
He opined that there cannot be true democracy in the country and that the election of retired General Muhammadu Buhari cannot be said to be the true choice of Nigerians.
The spokesman warned that unless these anomalies were corrected, there was the likelihood of the April 11 governorship and state Assembly elections being rigged.
He declared, "Should that happen, Nigeria would be sitting on top a keg laddened with a bomb".
Mr. Edigbe has therefore called on all true democrats in Nigeria to reject the results and opt for a property conducted election laced with credibility.
