Blame politicians for inconclusive elections –Kazeem
From Jimoh Ahmed, Ore
Achieftain of All Progressives Congress, Alhaji Olanrewaju Kazeem have blamed politicians’ desperation for inconclusive elections in the country.
He posited that if politicians would allow the process to run its process freely, all elections would have been a huge success.
“Inconclusive election is not the making of INEC. It is the fault of the stakeholders. If on election day, materials were provided and people lined up to cast their votes there would be no inconclusive election. But when people disrupt the process there would be inconclusive or unfinished election”.
“When you snatch ballot boxes, when you stuff ballot boxes, there would be inconclusiveness of elections. It is the fault of the players; it is a result of do or die politics”.
Suggesting a way out of the problems, Kazeem called for the streamlining of political parties to a maximum of three.
According to him, this will curb electoral offences. The legal luminary called for attitudinal change on the part of the people.
“Our people should change. They should have the fear of God at heart. Whoever will be will be. Man proposes but God disposes”.
INEC has done well. The fund given to the electoral umpire was well spent. The problem is not with INEC. It is we the people. We have to change our ways and attitudes, unless we change our attitudes things will not change “.
