The lives of Nigerians or the upcoming four years, according to Rufai, are at stake, so it is important to act morally and carefully.

Rufai asserted that the lives of Nigerians for the next four years are at stake hence it is important to act morally and carefully.

He was astounded by how the INEC had promised to transmit all of the elections, but had only done so for the senatorial election, leaving out the presidential and national assembly votes.

Nigerians, according to Rufai, also expect that their leaders be held accountable for their acts.

He said: “Our determination of an election that every promise was made to bring about a level of inclusion when INEC said they were going to do something and all of a sudden, the senatorial election was trasmitted that day and only the presidential was not transmitted on time as at real time.

“I think it is very demeaning and disrespectful with all due respect, to liken this very petitent national issue to the case of Oscar Pistorious, Reeva Steenkamp and OJ Simpson and his wife. What Nigerians demand is a level of accountability”
