The Head of Presidential Anti-corruption Committee, Itse Sagay, has stated that the rulings that declared winners without elections in Rivers and Akwa Ibom state in spite of extensive evidences of irregularities, set a dangerous precedent in the history of elections. Sagay disclosed this at the Olu Palace, Warri on Saturday.
“The judgements are very perverse, particularly relating to Akwa Ibom and Rivers. Everybody knows that there were no elections in those two states. “Everybody knows that people like Wike climbed into the .....
governorship seat over dead bodies and over bloods of human beings. There were no elections, they wrote the results; the evidence is there,” he said.
He expressed that the Supreme court has set the clock of electoral excellence and fairness and credibility back by, “I do not want to say a thousand years, but certainly it is taking us back to where we were before Jega came in and sanitize the system.”
“We are going to have primitive and barbaric electoral culture; ‘kill as much as you can, destroy as much as you can, create as much catastrophe, but if you can find yourself on that seat, you are confirmed, regardless of the means by which you got there’.
“That is a very major setback to democracy and the rule of law.
