The Occupy Nigeria Movement has described the just concluded presidential election as “worst form of election robbery meted on the Nigerian people” and that it will protest against it.

A statement signed by the spokesperson of the group, Muhammad Bash, stated that votes were merely allotted in many parts of the Northwest and Northeast.

The statement further noted that “It is an insult to the Nigerian people that INEC would allow an election in which voters were intimidated, maimed and even killed to stand.”

The group also condemned alleged use of thugs to intimidate legitimate citizens from exercising their civic rights.

“Some thugs constituted themselves into a government in a society governed by laws, and prevented legitimate citizens from exercising their franchise, makes a mockery of the entire law enforcement system and to rub it in the government and its agencies have turned a blind eye to this situation.

“That INEC chose to go ahead with the show of shame at the International Conference Center (ICC) in Abuja is a public rape on the sensibilities of the people of Nigeria, even when it had failed to provide credible explanations on what had actually transpired in the polling centers where ballot papers were snatched or burnt.”

The group called on all well-meaning Nigerians to join in a peaceful protest on Monday 4th March, 2019 by 9:00am at the Unity Fountain, Abuja.

The statement explained that the protest was aimed for “Nigeria to make a clear statement to those who think they can trample on the will of Nigerians.”
