The leader of the leading Yoruba socio-cultural group Afenifere, Reuben Fasoranti has criticised the Federal High court judgement sitting in Lagos barring the military from the elections. He said the military should not be barred from the elections.
According to the Afenifere leader, Nigeria has not developed to the extent that we should conduct elections without the presence of the military.
He said past elections had shown that the hijacking of ballot boxes and the disruption of elections were possible because the security at elections were not adequate.
He also said that the hoodlums and politicians, mainly those who are certain will not win elections will take advantage of this judgement to cause confusion during and after the elections. He said unpopular politicians will want to cause confusion at the polls.
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
