Election violence: Stick to your sanction resolve, Situation Room beckons U.S, U.K

The Nigeria Civil Society Situation Room has urged the United States and the United Kingdom to follow through on their earlier statement that they would sanction individuals whose actions undermine election or have led to the death of citizens. 

The Executive Director of Policy Legacl and Advocacy Centre and Convener of Situation Room Clement Nwankwo further appealed to the international community to continually lend their voices in defence of the integrity of the result. 

“We ask that such officers be held personally accountable for infringing on the rights of citizens in the exercise of their franchise”

“Politicians should commit to respecting the rules of the election and under the current circumstance ensure that their followers do not act outside of the law with respect to election returns,” he said.
