"We Don't Need American Ambassadors To Tell Us That We Had Flawed Elections" - Rufai Oseni

As controversies continue to trail the outcome of the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections, United States diplomats, who reportedly monitored the elections, said that the electoral process was flawed and it fell short of reasonable expectations. While reacting to this, Rufai Oseni said that Nigerians don't need ambassadors to tell them that the elections were flawed. He said that Nigerians knew what happened, adding that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) also made it clear that they had technical glitches.

Speaking further, he said that INEC is yet to explain the nature of the problems they had during the elections. He added that aside from the reminder that the election was flawed, the real issue should be how to put measures in place to ensure that the same problems don't happen again.

"With due respect, we don't need American former ambassadors to tell us that we had flawed elections. It is just like petting people on the back if they have to remind us. We knew what happened and even INEC came out to say they had glitches. So if we are just waking up because they came to tell us that our elections were flawed, then we know that they are just petting us on the back. The question is what are we going to do to ensure a change?"
