The Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC), Wednesday, read a riot act to election riggers against the forthcoming 18th March gubernatorial and House of Assembly elections across Nigeria.
Its national president, Comrade Igboayaka O Igboayaka, stated this while interacting with newsmen in Aba.
According to him, “Any INEC official that attempts to subvert the wishes of the people by alteration of result figures should be made to face the full wrath of the law.”
On the alleged rigging in Rivers State during the Feb 25 presidential and National Assembly elections, Igboayaka said, “Anyone who dares that in Rivers will surely face justice. Most importantly, Ndigbo would not take the threats coming from Bola Tinubu/APC agents of darkness for granted.
“We acknowledged the fact and disagreed that Lagos is Not ‘No Man’s Land.’ Yes! Lagos belongs to the Yorubas, nevertheless, Bola Tinubu is not a Lagosian, he’s originally from Osun state and the Igbo tribe have contributed immensely in the building of Lagos to become a viable cosmopolitan city it is today.
“Igbos in Lagos and wherever they are domiciled across the country will continue to enthrone good governance and candidates that have the ability to achieve this. Ndigbo are not hiding their position that His Excellency, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of Labour Party (LP) remains the most credible guber candidate and without regret will enjoy 100% votes of Ndigbo in Lagos State, while Arch. Pastor Tonye Cole of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will enjoy 100% votes of Ndigbo in Rivers State.
“It’s very important to treat any electoral officer caught engaging in criminal activities, be it RECs or POs that have taken money from politicians to upturn results, like a common criminal.”
