The Inspector-General of police, Suleman Abba has warned individuals and groups not to declare election results different from that of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the forthcoming elections.
He said today in Abuja that the warning became necessary following threats by certain category of politicians to declare their own result if what INEC announced was not favorable to their party.
“We have heard some people are threatening to declare election result, we hope it is not true” he said.
He spoke at the National briefing of Accredited Observers for the 2015 general elections held yesterday in Abuja.
Abba said “If you don’t accept the declared result by INEC, the best way is to proceed to the tribunal, doing otherwise, telling the electorates to remain and protect their vote and if does not favour you take the law into your hands.”In civilized society they don’t take the law into their hand but resort to tribunal” Abba said.
He therefore harped on sensitization of the political class insisting that “the refusal to accept the result and resort to extra judicial activities is a threat to the electoral process”.
He told the affected politicians that “you are causing apprehension.But where they don’t heed the appeal, the police will act within the law to protect the electoral process.”
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
