2019 elections: How international community can election riggers- Obasanjo

Elder statesman and ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo has suggested to international community that it could compel Nigeria to conduct free, fair and credible elections in 2019 by stipulating possible punishment for top-ranking public officials who are complicit in election malpractice.

Obasanjo said this in a statement titled, Points for concern and action, released on Sunday.The former president said, “While Nigerians must not allow such a disaster to happen nor take such an affront lying low, the international community who played an admirable role in warning INEC, of course, to no avail on the Osun State gubernatorial election and who have been warning all political parties, must, on this occasion, give more serious warning, send more people to the field to observe and work out punitive measures against INEC and security officials especially the Police and politicians who stand to gain from INEC’s misconduct, which is obviously encouraged by the Executive Arm of Government and who must be held responsible for the violence that will follow.

“Such measures can vary from denial and withdrawal of visas from the people concerned and from their families, to other more stringent measures, including their accounts being frozen and taking them to International Criminal Court if violence emanates from their action or inaction.

“Nigeria must not be allowed to slip off the democratic path nor go into anarchy and ruin.“No individual or group has monopoly of violence or gangsterism. And we must not forget that in human interaction, reactions are normally greater than action, though opposite.”

  1. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform
    you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
