APC chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has stated that he stands with the directive given by President Buhari against ballot box snatchers.
Recall that President Buhari gave the directive while speaking at an APC caucus meeting where he said he’d given the military an order against ballot box snatchers.
Reacting to the president’s directive, Tinubu while speaking at an APC stakeholders meeting in Lagos yesterday, said he’s in support of it.
“We all heard what PMB directive on political thuggery, ballot boxes snatching, violence to the security personnel. He is the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, I’m not. Women, please warn your children, brothers not cause any form of trouble on election day as the security will be ruthless against such act. It will do everyone good to obey than to disobey. I stand with President Muhammadu Buhari on his statement on ballot box snatching.
Ballot box snatching is similar to robbery, and even worse, hence, it must be condemned in all its entirety by everybody. We must not allow it. Anybody caught snatching ballot boxes must ruthlessly be dealt with. It’s done in our best interest to protect our Nation’s democracy from being truncated by enemies of progress.
Let your Permanent Voter’s Card be your army, we must go out and elect Buhari and our other candidates on Saturday, February 23 and subsequently, governorship candidates and state House of Assembly. “If you (members) have any problem at all go and see the leaders of the party in your council and wards.”
