BREAKING: Nigeria’s 2019 Presidential Election Was ‘Rigged’ — European Union

On June 15, 2019 5 Comments

Nigeria’s 2019 general elections won by President Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress weren’t transparent and were marred by violence and harassment of voters, the European Union observer mission said.

“The elections became increasingly marred by violence and intimidation, with the role of the security agencies becoming more contentious as the process progressed, ” the EU observers said Saturday in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, in their final report on the Feb. 23 and March 2 votes. “This damaged the integrity of the electoral process and may deter future participation.”

The elections gave Buhari, 76, a second four-year term with 56% of the vote, while Atiku Abubakar, a former Vice President and candidate of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, came second with 41%. The ruling party also won a majority of parliamentary seats.

    Buhari is worst corrupt president now, yet he claimed that he is fighting corruption. Very wicked soul. He should step down, because Nigerian people didn’t vote for him.
