Ex Secretary-General of the Nigeria Union of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, Chief Frank Kokori has come out to say that insecurity should not be allowed to delay 2023 elections.

He recently revealed this in an interview with the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, Nigeria is currently experiencing its worst security situations ever, and things could easily escalate during election period.

He, however, added that the elections will have to go on because boycotting them will only be a waste of time.

His words, “As for the elections, the process will have to go on. There is no question as to whether the election will go on or not. If you boycott elections in Nigeria, you are just wasting your time because your opponents will go to the polls and they will win.”

“If you boycott elections, you boycott yourself. It has no effect on your opponents. Your opponents will even be very happy. They will just be there unopposed. So, nobody will boycott elections in Nigeria. They all want power.”

“If they want to go to the Senate, will they boycott elections when they know they want to be senators? Or you want to be governor, or go to the House of Assembly, will you boycott elections? No! The elections will be held. Security or no security, the elections will go on.”

“These are heartless people. How can you kidnap small children and students? Now, it has got a level where they kidnap children of four and five years and the government (officials are) sitting down there, saying they are running a government. It’s a shame!”

“People who are destroying the country in terms of security are not human beings. These are animals! The armed Fulani herdsmen from Mali, Burkina Faso and Senegal are not the normal herdsmen we have. These are terrorists from the Sahel. They can’t speak your language.”

“These are animals, they are the people giving us problems in this country. Fulani from Nigeria are different from those Fulani. There are many Nigerians who have joined them as bandits in the South. You need a strong government to wipe it out and we don’t have that type of government.”
