President of Civil Congress of Nigeria, Comrade Shehu Sani has warned that any attempt to rig the 2015 general elections may result in a revolution.
He said this was because more Nigerians were getting enlightened about the need for good leadership.
Speaking on Wednesday at a lecture to mark the Niger State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), press week at the IBB Pen House Minna, Sani cautioned that religious and ethnic affiliations should not be the basis for electing leaders.
“Those running the affairs of the country must ensure that 2015 election is free and fair or risk revolution, citizens are getting enlightened and are prepared to fight for their right”, he said.
The ordinary citizens across the country, he said, were not concerned about the origin of their leaders but the capabilities of such persons.
He lamented that President Goodluck Jonathan’s impact was not being felt even in his Niger Delta region save for few privileged individuals.
The activist likened the situation to when the northerners occupied the top leadership position, saying the low-class never enjoyed quality representation.
“Those who benefited when Northerners occupied the position of authority are the bourgeoisie”, he decried. Culled
