On Nasir el-Rufai’s outburst
The defence of the presidency issued by Garba Shehu, the presidential spokesman concerning the outburst of the governor of Kaduna State over his threat to the international community not to interfere in the nation’s general elections should be discountenanced.
The coming elections are a watershed as to the continuation of democracy in this country. Anything short of credible elections would spell doom for the country in the eyes of the international community.
There are so many pointers that the 2019 elections will not be credible yet It is imperative for the ruling party to conduct very credible elections.
Those in power now are the ones to show good leadership examples for others to follow. They should not give space for truncation of the country’s democracy.
