A former minister of Education, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, has lamented the activities of thugs in the ongoing governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections, particularly in Lagos State.
The 2023 Lagos State gubernatorial election was marred by highly level of violence and intimidation and the former minister is concerned this could be a new normal in the administration of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, who was declared president-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
Ezekwesili, who has served Nigeria in different capacities, is concerned that Nigerians may witness more reckless and total disregard of rule of law if Tinubu becomes President.
“The mayhem @officialABAT and his criminal enterprise gang unleashed in Lagos today against innocent citizens is what he wants to assume the Office of President and scale to the rest of Nigeria in the name of ‘controlling the Center?’
“Tufia! The God of Justice forbids.”
