By now, it should be obvious to Nigerians, that the only option left before Nigerian democracy is totally destroyed, is to stand up and square up to President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The alternative is to remain prisoners in the web currently being spurn by the President and his party to entrap the entire citizenry by ensuring that the era of credible elections is completely dead in the country.

Fayose, who was reacting to the outcome of last Saturday's bye-election in Rivers State for Port Harcourt Constituency III State Assembly seat, said the exercise, had indicated once again another sad reality that votes of Nigerians would no longer count, adding that failure to act now would ensure that Buhari and his party would have a field day in the 2019, election as the elections will be held at gun-point to achieve predetermined results.

Fayose, said, save for those who for partisan reasons have elected not to see anything bad in the destruction of the legacy of free, fair and credible conduct of elections through which the APC government of President Muhammadu Buhari emerged, it should now be obvious that Nigeria was in a state of anarchy.

The solution, according to the governor, in a statement, signed by his spokesman, Lere Olayinka, is for Nigerians and the whole world to stand up and not allow the country to be driven into the pit of catastrophe because of the desperation of a few people to retain power.

Hear him: “It is worrisome that the same way they invaded Ekiti State with over 50,000 armed security personnel last month and laid siege on the State for a whole week was how they invaded Rivers State yesterday with men of the State Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) that aided APC thugs to snatch election materials, including card readers and abduct INEC officials.

“Even INEC could not but point it out in its press statement announcing suspension of the election that miscreants and hoodlums accompanied by heavily armed security personnel in uniform stormed polling units, destroying and carting away electoral materials as well as holding electoral officers hostage.
“We thought that we have gone past this era of manipulated electoral process after the 2015 general elections, which brought the APC and President Buhari to power, the country has been taken back to the Stone Age by merging APC with INEC, police, military and other security agencies.”

He called for the arrest and prosecution of the policemen that took part in the shootings and snatching of election materials in Rivers State yesterday, saying “there are pictorial evidence of the policemen on the social media, the police authority must not sweep this under the carpet as usual.”

Governor Fayose said if election in just 142 polling units was so militarised, with gunshots everywhere, “time has come for Nigerians to rise up to this challenge of making sure that the democracy that they fought for is not destroyed by those whose only interest is to retain power in 2019.”

He said: “I warned Nigerians in 2015 and when this reign of tyranny started, I kept warning. Now, free, fair and credible election is dead in Nigeria and election has become what the ruling party must ‘win’ at gun-point.”

The governor challenged President Buhari to stop pretending as if he knew nothing about the electoral malfeasance going on under his watch, adding that “It is the interest of the President that is being protected and it is a disservice to a man who is close to 80 years to allow his country to be turned to a war zone just because he is seeking re-election.
