Osun Election: Saraki, Dogara, Tambuwal lead PDP protest at INEC headquarters in Abuja Nigeria
Premium Times reports that, Leaders of the main opposition party, PDP, are currently protesting at the headquarters of the electoral commission, INEC.
The protesters are demanding the cancellation of the recent re-run governorship election in Osun State and the declaration of the PDP candidate, Ademola Adeleke, as winner.
Mr Adeleke lost to Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress in the Osun governorship election after a controversial rerun exercise in seven polling units.
The Friday protest is led by Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the Hosue of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal and others, Premium Times reported.
My view: The same party that looted Nigeria dry when they were in power, now parading themselves and seeking for justice, when they snubbed and neglect millions of jobless Nigerians. The Senate president Saraki and his friends alongside former president Goodluck Jonathan inflicted pain and economic injustice on their fellow citzens, with no Income and Housing Support, and now they have the audacity to protest about an election their candidate woefully lost. These selfish and self-centred Nigerian politicians earn over £73,000 (N40million)-a-month while unemployed Nigerians are suffering. Nigeria is Africa’s biggest economy, yet almost half its population lives in extreme poverty.
