Following the ongoing election process in Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi States, a political group under the auspices of Co Federation of All Progressives Congress Support Groups (CASG), on Saturday, November 11, called on Nigerians to remain calm and follow due process.
CASG advised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to be professional and transparent as Nigerians await the results of the election in the concerned states.
The Director General of the group, Dr. Kailani Muhammad while briefing reporters in Abuja on the state of the nation cautioned against any action that will truncate the electoral process.
He said: “Nigerians should shun violence especially those in the three states the election is ongoing. We should all ensure a peaceful process and not the other way around.
“We hope in the near future INEC will buy a generator where there is no light or install a solar system to function better. They should be transparent and monitor proceedings. We pray that APC wins in all the three states without crisis.”
He described the development as unpatriotic and bad.
The group expressed sadness that despite its pleading to NLC to shelve its planned strike and shun any act capable of disturbing the peace of the country, the leadership of the unions still ordered the strike.
The group advised the NLC president to engage the government instead of causing more trouble for Nigerians.
Muhammad said: “We are not happy over the disruption of flights by the NLC protest over the recent assault on its National President, Comrade Joe Ajaero in Imo state.
“We condemned NLC’s action. NLC should engage the government and endure a roundtable discussion instead of causing more trouble.
“NLC cannot be more powerful than government. We as groups will not take this action again. Nigeria belongs to all of us. We should always ensure and seek peace.”
