The special assistant on electronic media to Rivers State Governor, Simeon Nwakandu stated that IGP, Buhari And The Reckless Use Of Security For Rigging are regrettable and shameful.
I have waited till a few hours to the Governorship election in Osun State to hear if the Inspector General of Police would withdraw the security details of Aregbesola. Nothing of the sort has happened.
Simeon Nwakandu, stated that he have waited for all the security personnel posted to Government House, Osogbo to be withdrawn, but that news is yet to be broadcast. Aregbesola and Osun State Government House have the full compliment of security details.
But in Ekiti State, the IGP and the Presidency masterminded the withdrawal of security details from Governor Fayose and denied the Government House, Ado Ekiti, the presence of security details. They gave all manner of irresponsible reasons.
Now, the ball is in Osun, an APC STATE and the Transmission Transmitter has lost his capacity to withdraw the security details of Aregbesola. I believe more security details would be at the disposal of the non-performing governor.
Simeon also noted that The ugly politicization of the Police by the failed APC Federal Government is regrettable and shameful. They have made it clear that the Police is Pro-APC. They don’t even disguise their acts of impunity .
Election after election, the Police under the control of the Federal Government continues to act below reasonable standards. They continue to shift the goal post in the middle of the match. The Police continue to work for the APC like hired thugs.
It is important that we continue to remind IGP Idris and President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigerians are watching as they display their anti-democratic credentials. The Police is now an enemy of the right of the people to choose their leaders.
The free hand given to failed outgoing Osun State Governor to use the police anyhow he deems fit is a sad commentary. Two governorship elections and two different operational tactics.
