SOCIAL GROUPS WARNED AGAINST UNDERMINING NIGERIA’S DEMOCRACY

Written by on March 11, 2019

An elections observer group, Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth and Advancement (YIAGA Africa) and Watching The Vote Group have been warned against comments and moves that could undermine Nigeria’s democracy.

YIAGA and WVG who were part of electoral observers in the just-concluded general elections in the country had during the weekend called on President Muhammadu Buhari to call the military to order in the course of their assignment during the Governorship and State Assembly Elections.

However, the National Democratic Front (NDF) while describing the demand as irresponsible, said it was a shameful affirmation of partisanship that should not come from any self-respecting group that ascribes neutrality to itself.

Secretary General of the group, Bolaji Abdulkadir, gave this warning in a statement forwarded to newsmen yesterday adding that YIAGA is apparently playing a mind game whereby President Buhari would be perceived as reversing himself, after earlier giving an order to the military .
