Politics Africa : If you have evidence of bribery or vote-buying, approach law enforcement agencies and not act like militant



If you have evidence of bribery or vote-buying, approach law enforcement agencies and not act like militant

President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, has taken a swipe at the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying that there is no need acting like a militant group when they could easily approach law enforcement agencies to register their displeasures.
Shehu noted that democratic tenets encourage civil activities on national issues, and that the action of the opposition party was best described as militancy.

The Presidential spokesperson, made this known while addressing newsmen in Abuja, noting also that the victory recorded by the All Progressives Congress (APC), at the National Assembly bye-elections in Katsina, Bauchi and Kogi States at the weekend was an indication of Buhari’s acceptance by Nigerians, which will be replicated in 2019.
He said, “One is to say that bribery of voters or vote-buying is an offence in this country, I think that citizens who have evidence regarding this, have a duty to report to the law enforcement agencies, this is the way to help the country.

“Secondly I think that it is not the right attitude for a political party, a so-called opposition leader to conduct their affairs like a militant organization, a political party cannot be run like a militant organization, if you have disagreement on the outcome of an election, they know the process and they know it because they abused it before, you can see this is the clear difference of the kind of democracy the APC administration is trying to put in place from what they are used to.

“(Governor) Willie Obiano of Anambra, same afternoon he won election, president Buhari said congratulations and weldone, we were happy we came second in the elections, that is the way it is.
“We lost a Senate seat in Osun, we didn’t try to bring down the roof, and this that has happened in Cross River (bye election for state assembly), did you hear Adams Oshiomhole saying he wants to shoot people, I think this is the difference we need.
“We are happy that we have won and on behalf of the president and the acting president, we like to say thank you to Nigerians who continue to repose their confidence in the leadership of the APC administration.”
