Yesterday, Yerima Shetimma, President of Arewa Consultative Youth Forum, has expressed displeasure over the outcome of 2019 general elections even as he accused the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC of playing the All Progressives Congress script.
Shetimma has made this known during a geo-political Mega rally in Lagos tagged, “#SaveOurDemocracy”.
He said the kind of democracy playing out in the country was not what was envisaged, “we thought by now we would have gotten to another level, but from all indications, we are going backward as a country as far as election is concerned.
“2019 elections was characterized with mass rigging and that is abuse on the sensitivity of Nigerians. It will go down in history as the worst as it clearly shows a rape on democracy. If you look very well, people came out en masse and voted for what they wanted. But from all indications, you can see that the second election recorded poor turnout which is a clear indication that Nigerians were not happy.
“In term of integrity, you can see that no integrity because serious flop was recorded during the election. We are happy that the flag bearer of People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar has gone to court.
“We won’t sit down and allow Nigerians to be run as if we are in the Banana Republic. INEC declared elections inconclusive in states where PDP is leading but very enthusiastic to declare states where APC won. We are not going to encourage one party system in Nigeria because their plan is to kill the opposition”.
