Bukola: Kwara Bye-Election is Between PDP and APC Plus Thugs and Security Agents

The President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki laments over the atmosphere of the Kwara House of Representatives Bye-Election held in four local government of the state today.

He alleges that the APC had invited thugs and security agents to lay siege and intimidate the people which amount to undermining our democracy. He said:

“We thank the people of Ekiti/Oke Ero/Isin/Irepodun who came out to vote today — defying the heavy intimidation and the siege laid by the security agents and thugs invited into the 4 LGAs by the APC. #KwaraByElection

The public should note that today’s #KwaraByElection was simply between PDP and security agents plus APC. This was due to the heavy deployment of police, soldiers and other security agents who gathered to support APC and harass PDP leaders and supoorters.

This is the first time that elections in Kwara State will be held under such charged, tensed and militarised conditions. We had INEC officials complaining about their own safety — and PDP supporters were brazenly intimidated, which resulted in low turn out of voters.

It is important to reiterate that ahead of the 2019 elections, such open displays of intimidation are sending wrong signals. Our democracy is being undermined with this misuse of our nation’s security apparatus. #KwaraByElection
