Former Minister of Health and member Board of Trustees of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Professor ABC Nwosu, has strongly condemned recent burning down of Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, offices in Abia, Plateau and Tuesday incident in Awka with a call on the security agencies to arrest and deal with the culprits immediately and decisively.

Reacting to the spate of burning of INEC offices in Abia, Plateau and  similar incident in Awka, Anambra State capital on Tuesday, Professor Nwosu who spoke with newsmen after the Enugu Town Hall meeting of the PDP Vice Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, said:  “I look at these heinous crimes with all seriousness not only for the destruction of electoral materials but as indicative of other criminal actions which might take place to disrupt the electoral process on Saturday.”

His words: “INEC must do everything in the three days to the election to ensure that credible elections are held in these areas because Nigerians will not tolerate postponement of elections in any selected states of the country.

“The Police and other security agencies should quickly arrest those responsible for the burning of INEC offices because this is can cast doubt on the entire elections. It is also very intriguing that the three incidents have taken place in states where the voting pattern can be very easily predicted.

“It is therefore critical that the culprits must be brought to book in order to teach those planning TO disrupt the elections a lesson.”

According to Nwosu, “the 2019 elections shall mark a  critical turning point in Nigerian history with regard to whether Nigeria will move forward with restructuring and development or continue with retrogression, bloated federal bureaucracy and power, marginalization of some constituent parts of the country and economic stagnation.  The choice is very clear and precise and everything must done to make sure that Nigerians vote and that their votes must determine who shall rule them.”

In his view, “anybody who rigs the election or acquiesces in the rigging of the election will have the sins visited on them, their children and grandchildren.  For Ndigbo, they must ignore the arson at Abia and Awka INEC offices and come out in very large numbers to vote for their preferred candidates and resist any saboteur of the Igbo will.”
