Top Nigerian journalist, Babajide Kolade-Otitoju has taken to social media to share his frustrations over the disturbing reports he received from different polling units at the Kano supplementary election.
The TVC top journalist described politicians involved in disrupting election with thugs as shameless, adding that their actions frustrate the efforts made by the authorities to ensure a peaceful election.
Former Senate President David Mark had earlier condemned the notion of inconclusive elections, describing it as unhealthy for Nigeria’s democracy. He said politicians will capitalize on this to disrupt elections if their party is losing.
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) also called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to cancel the Kano supplementary election.
I have been sent at least 12 videos of the supplementary poll in Kano. Some of the scenes would make you think the videos were shot in Rivers State. We can't draft AIGs, DIGs and others to secure an election only for thugs to run riot. Shame, big shame on these politicians.
