AREGBESOLA: Lagos LG Boss Wants Election Riggers Tried


A Lagos council chairman and House of Representatives aspirant, has called on the  Federal Government to order the prosecution of all those involved in rigging during  the 2007 general elections.

Akeem Omoyele Sulaimon of Bariga Local Council Development Area, said in a chat with  LG Circuit at the weekend after the judgment of the Appeal Court in Ibadan, which  declared Engr. Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola, the Osun State Action Congress of Nigeria  (ACN) candidate in the 2007 governorship election as winner of that election.

Sulaimon, who is also fondly called Oris by his teeming supporters, noted that  prosecution of all riggers of the 2007 general elections would prove government’s  commitment to credible elections in the future.

According to him, “the prosecution of those who in one way or the other contributed  to subverting the 2007 electoral process will confirm Federal Government’s  commitment to free, fair and transparent election in 2011.”
