Nigeria's democracy still at it's infancy says Waziri Gobir

Date: 2019-02-17

The Waziri Hausa and Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State, Alhaji Yakubu Gobir says the sudden postponement of Saturday's Presidential and National Assembly elections by INEC has glaringly shown that Nigeria's democracy is still at its infancy.

Waziri Gobir stated this while reacting to the postponement of the elections.

According to him , the democratic proces in the country is not only inefficient but too expensive.

The APC chieftain added that with the present democratic system, there is an over reliance on cheating in the form of rigging and acts of violence to win elections.

Waziri Gobir however, noted that though , most Nigerians are disappointed by INEC's last minute postponement, but said it could be a blessing in disguise.

The APC chieftain suggested to INEC to completely change the ballot papers and introduce security features so as to avoid any form of rigging adding that the commission would had made use of NSPMC instead of local suppliers in the printing of the ballot papers and other election materials.

Waziri Gobir alledged that some political parties had spent billions of Naira in the run up of Saturday's elections to sway voters which according to him, is difficult again to come by before the new date fixed for another round of elections.

He reminded INEC that all eyes are on the commission as history would judge Professor Mahmoud Yakubu and his team as the political situation in the country unfolds.
