The lawmaker representing Kaduna Central at the upper chambers of the National Assembly, Senator Shehu Sani, has given reasons the 2019 general election cannot be free and fair.
Senator Sani pointed out that a government that cannot obey the rule of law cannot boast of organising a free and fair election.
The President Muhammadu Buhari administration has been consistently accused of disobeying the rule of law mainly by the opposition.
Although the government machinery have in more than one occasion debunked the allegation, Senator Sani believes that “rule of law is the horse and free elections is the cart.”
In a tweet on Monday, Sani said, “When a Government habitually disobeys court orders and factually violates fundamental rights, there’s enough material evidence to denounce its attitude to rule of law and doubts its commitment to free and transparent elections.
“Rule of law is the horse and free elections is the cart.”
