Elections Result: APC threatens INEC Commissioners

As Nigerians await the official announcement of the winners of the Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly election, the supporters of the All Progressives Congress, APC, have taken to the social media in violent protest.

The country witnessed its Presidential and National Assembly elections on Saturday, March 28, 2015 with the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and APC being the top contenders.

APC’s faithful supporters on Twitter have begun to threaten fire and brimstone, against INEC commissioners therefore falling foul of the Electoral Act.

A twitter user named Aisha Yesufu who tweets with @AishaYesufu tweeted: “Dear INEC Commissioners Any money u collect to distort d results can only be used for 2 things Paying hospital bills & burial arrangements”

The Electoral Act frowns at any statement that intends to incite violence.

The following are the tweets

Dear INEC Commissioners Any money u collect to distort d results can only be used for 2 things Paying hospital bills & burial arrangements

Despite the latest Peace Accord signed by President Goodluck Jonathan and the candidate for the APC, the supporters and member of the party have ignored the pact, and wreaked violence is various parts of the country.
