Former Senator and social analyst Senator Shehu Sani has stated that compromised elections are responsible for the collapse of Democracy in Africa.
In a post via his X, formerly Twitter handle, on Wednesday, Sani gave a reason for the rising coup in Africa.
Kemi Filani News recalls that the top military officers on Tuesday declared a coup in Gabon after the third term re-election of President Ali Bongo.
The officers reportedly announced they were annulling the outcome of Saturday’s election, which the opposition had rejected and described as “fraudulent”.
But Sani accused the Bongo family of dominating and destroying Democracy in Gabon.
He wrote, “A BBC correspondent just reported people in Gabon are “genuinely” trooping out to the streets in support of the Coup in Libreville. The Bongo family dominated and destroyed Democracy. Democracy dies in Africa when elections are poisoned.”
