Nigerian Wailers has called on President Muhammadu to prevail on his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, to stop intimidating electorate “Federal Might.”

Nigerian Wailers made the call at a time when some stakeholders frowned at the conduct of the Saturday’s rerun election in Rivers State over irregularities that marred the election.
Recall that the Governor of Rivers, Nyesom Wike had accused security agents of hijacking and attempting to rig the Saturday’s election.
But the body in the statement said, “The Federal Government of Nigeria headed by President Muhammadu should call both the ruling APC and PDP to order.
“He should also stop his party members from intimidating the electorate with what they termed as “Federal Might”, this is one critical problem that must be resolved.
“When the people perceive that the election is being compromised by the federal government via the law enforcement agencies, they are tempted to take laws into their hands to resist oppression and intimidation. This is not part of our tenets of democracy.
“No citizen should be forced to resort to lawlessness and anarchy because the instruments of government and government Agencies are subverting their wishes.
“The Government must carry out its duties and functions by ensuring that the security provided does not infringe on the people’s rights during electioneering process.”
