Some Nigerians under the aegis of Good Governance Institute have protested in London, alleging that the process was marred by electoral fraud and voters’ suppression.
The group reminded the United Kingdom that it spent £5 million during the Nigerian election, hence it should show interest in ensuring that the right things were done.
Founder of Good Governance Institute (GGI), Marcel Ngogbehei, who led the protest, knocked the Nigerian government for showing less attention to the security of the voters as political thugs harassed and intimidated voters.
Ngogbehei argued that the world would be affected if Nigeria with over 200 million population is faced with crisis.
He said it was time for the international communities to get involved and avoid looming crisis over the outcome of the 2023 presidential election which some said was fraudulent following some irregularities and also the inability of the electoral umpire to pause the result announcement and resolve the irregularities as they did in one of the state elections.
He wondered why the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) flushed the plea of Nigerians in loo by announcing the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed around 4am as the winner.
“Nigeria has over 200 million people, a crisis in Nigeria will affect the entire world. This is the time that the entire world, this is the time for the international community to get involved.
“What we are saying is that the British government must take interest in ensuring that the right of the citizens to choose their leaders is protected. The British government cannot spend £5 million British taxpayers money in Nigeria and turn the other eye while we have a fictitious election.
