Some youth, backed by the Free Nigerian Movement, have called on the US and UK governments to urgently ban visas for violent people in elections that have just ended.

 

The youth also called for “the governments of the United Kingdom and the United States to strip the civil rights” of those who sponsored thugs to intimidate and disrupt the electoral process during the presidential election.

They called during protests at the British High Commission and the US Embassy in Abuja on Monday.

 

The protesters expressed their dissatisfaction with the outcome of the presidential election and called for sanctions against the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC’s National Chairman Professor Yakubu Mahmood, the State Election Commissions and other INEC officials.

 

The 2023 election has taken place. Group organizer Moses Ogidi-Paul addressed journalists during the protest, calling on the Nigerian government to seek reparations for all victims of electoral violence and voter suppression during the 2023 General Elections.

 

He said: “On February 25, 2023, Nigerians were tasked with marching into polling stations, casting votes and electing their next leaders.

“Never before has our democracy been so abused by citizens, both public and private. Professor Yakubu Mahmood has set the benchmark for impunity, but fixing will come at the expense of our country’s many years of excellent electoral results.

“This was not the electronic transmission he promised Nigerians and the world at Chatham House. Professor Yakubu Mahmood lied to Nigerians and abused our voting rights. Pass a vote and call for his immediate release and prosecution.

 

“Therefore, we urge President Muhammadu Buhari, whose commitment to free and fair elections is enshrined in the legacy of the 2022 Electoral Law, to initiate the processes and procedures to bring Nigeria under the control of the Caretaker Government.

I ask the “whereabouts of the February 25th presidential election.”
