The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Bode George is very angry and has bared his mind on the March 18th Governorship and House of Assemby elections in Lagos State.
The elder statesman, said; “The crimes against peaceful people trying to exercise their rights is no different from war crimes and should be tried by the International Criminal Court (ICC)”.
“I am shattered and heartbroken that democracy is in shambles in a state known for civility, humility, harmony and respect for the rule of law.”
“Never in my life have I seen such a despicable and dishonourable way of not allowing people to express their right to elect whoever they want.”
“Lagos became a den of lunatics, the forefathers who founded Lagos – the Aworis and others – will be angry in their graves.”
“Power-hungry fellows turned everything upside down in their quest to retain power, with ‘Oro’ worshippers invoking spiritual insults on other Nigerians in broad daylight.”
“Soldiers were deployed during the presidential and national assembly election, who ordered that the soldiers should be withdrawn during the governorship and House of Assembly elections?”
“Due to threats from hoodlums, many potential voters returned home angrily without voting.”
“There were snatching of ballot boxes/papers by APC thugs, they were burning of election materials and the free use of dangerous weapons at polling units.”
“APC is fuelling ethnic division, its followers disenfranchised people because they are Igbo or look like Igbo.”
“Some voters were macheted and shot. This is not the Lagos we used to be proud of. This election is a total disgrace to APC and Nigeria.”
