Nigerian actor and politician, Kenneth Okonkwo criticized the All Progressives Congress following the appearance of Tajudeen Abbas as Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Recall that we reported that Abbas was elected by members of the House of Representatives in a “publicly declared” voting system on Tuesday.
He polled a total of 353 votes to beat fellow candidates, Ahmed Wase and Sani Jaji, who each voted three votes.
Reacting to the development through a series of posts on his Twitter account, Okonkwo condemned the public vote voting system that chose Abbas as a speaker.
The hardline Labor Party has criticized the ruling All Radical Congress for excluding the central north from all constituencies in the Union, Executive and Legislature.
I wrote “APC has demonstrated the spirit of marginalization by excluding North Central from every election seat in the Federal Executive and Legislature of this great country in the 2023 elections by the time North Central not head the Ministry of Justice. This goes against the spirit of fairness and equity, and most importantly, this badly advised composition of the constituencies has violated Nigeria’s Federal Character Principles.
“The most unacceptable sight is the humiliating treatment of the only candidate from North Central Vietnam for the post of President of HOR and the ambush set forth for him through the application of the system Widespread voting scares off members. vote in a particular way. This can be described as a pre-calculated procedural manipulation of the election.
“Nigeria can be better than this. We will not yield until this APC scourge is removed from Nigeria’s political welfare structure. Once again, the APC has unleashed a new hopelessness in harnessing the beauty of our diversity by including all of the Geopolitical Regions in the map of everything in Nigeria.”
