Ballot Box Snatching Statement -Your View

President Buhari made a statement on Monday which a lot of people are reading various meanings into...
Whilst some are saying the statement incites killing/Violence,others feel he was in line with what he said....





Buhari is quoted as saying that “Anybody who decides to snatch boxes or lead thugs to disturb the election, maybe that would be the last unlawful action you would take.
 “I have given the military and police the order to be ruthless. I am going to warn anybody who thinks he would lead a body of thugs in his locality to snatch boxes or to disturb the voting system; he would do it at the expense of his/her own life.”
How do you see this statement?Do you think it was in order or are you among those who want the President to retract this statement to avoid any form of Violence?

    6. Lady bug, I was going to address your comment before I saw the others.
      I believe you used the word bigot because you have heard others use it because if you know the meaning and you understand the question asked by Stella then you'll see that there isn't any correlation between your response and the question asked.

  3. My own is that hope the Soldiers have been oriented on what a ballot box looks like, before they shoot those with lunch box!

    Stella INEC have laws and principles guiding any election...we also have punishment for electoral offenders in the constitution anybody found wanting should be prosecuted as provided by the law. We shouldn't give room for anarchy.

    My take!

    1. I will only ask you a question.

      The people coming to snatch ballot boxes, do you in all honesty think they come there with beer and food?

      These people come there armed to the teeth, and you expect the security officers to treat them with kids gloves, smh😎😎😎😎

      Delete
    2. Lady bug you forget that when they snatch this boxes innocent citizens would be around the polling unit, what happens if it hits one of them? Would we now call that a mistake or say the president ordered it..
      I think the president should also think of the people at the polling units, arrest can be made and the appropriate law or action taken, not shooting that might hit an innocent citizen.

    5. 2015 same APC took Jonathan to court against sending soldiers to the street during election that they are meant to be in barracks. So why are they doing same thing they were against then? Is it in the Constitution? Is it death or jail sentence? Boko Haram terrorist are pardoned, rehabilitated and mixed up again into the society.

      Which offense is more costlier? Born to rule.
      When God says yes, no man, no other god can say no. Let us all try and vote. Make e remain to count.

  5. Foolish statement from a person who has no regard for the Law. For election purposes all the forces are under the command of the INEC chairman and he made a statement regarding this issue yesterday. Anybody that follows that Mumu order will have nobody but himself to blame at the end of the day.

  8. I agree with what he said.

    See, these thugs who usually snatch the ballot boxes don't go there unarmed, they are never polite when snatching these boxes, innocent lives have been lost in the process yet they still cost us good governance. Enough is enough, if they value their lives, they should only go and vote as civilized human beings and if they can't do that, keep off!

    Its all shades of wrong. It will not only deprive the electorates from exercising their franchise,but will also give the security agents a reason to kill innocent citizens.

    If the security agents are present at the polling units doing their job, what will give a thug the nerve to cause mayhem?

    That's my take, please as a president, mind what you say.

  11. The statement coming from a president is bad because people misinterpret it. Remember the last time Buhari made a statement like "if he loose the election, blood will roll" Do you know how many people that died after he lost?. Nigeria force men always look for a tiny reason to kill. The other day we heard of Custom officer shooting someone in Broad day light. They may even kill an innocent person who comes to vote and then throw a ballot box on him/her claiming they snatched ballot box. Nigeria doesn't have CCTV to monitor all these, so many things will go wrong. Innocent people might be killed.

    1. You just quoted a lie. “If he loose the election, blood will roll”. The expression is not only wrong, but the quote is more terrible. No one even says “blood will roll”. In which English? Head will roll or blood will flow? If you want to make a comment, be sincere and honest. Don’t let your emotions drive you into posting lies.
      Now your opening line is just too contradictory. You say the statement is bad because it is liable to misinterpretation or it is bad for what it is?

  12. I stand with Buhari, snatch ballot boxes at the risk of your life!

    Instead of all to give warnings to see planning to snatch ballot boxes they ar busy analysing and dissecting Buhari's statement of fact!

    I dare anybody to come ot with the aim of snatching ballot boxes one Saturday, he or she would be ruthlessly dealt with at the detriment of his or her life!

    Ballot boxes snatchers are enemies of the state and will precisely dealth with as an enemy of the state!😎😎😎😎😎

    Stella we live in the north,far north for that matter,belive me they are just waiting for something to trigger violence and they will start killing,not themselves but before u know it,it will become religions fight,the killing of Christians, that we will have to be running up and down...
    we live in constant fear in this election already,now with what he said,lots of people are already traveling home with their children.
    That statement is too harsh and is encouraging violence....

  14. Are you a 'THUG'? Do you plan on engaging in Ballot box snatching or being unruly during Elections? If Yes, then you should loose sleep over Mr President's statement.

    If you are like the millions of other Nigerians who plan to go to their poll Units, cast their votes and wait for the results to be announced..... then, you have nothing to be afraid of.

  18. Only PDPig supporters and members who are planning to rig the elections will cry over this. They tried rigging the elections with CJN and it didn't work. They tried with already thumb printed ballot papers, it didn't work. They tried bribing Inec staffers with millions of dollars and it didn't work. Buhari has blocked all their chances of rigging. We are watching to see what they'll spring up with on Saturday. All Buhari is saying is let there be free and fair elections just like the one which brought him into power. It doesn't matter who wins. But who ever tries to do mago mago, snatch ballot papers etc, be ready to pay for your life! And we are right behind baba

  19. The President shouldn't be heard uttering such a statement. We already know the security officers don't value life any little thing they have pulled the trigger. Why use live ammunitions instead of rubber bullets knowing fully well that they can aim and kill the innocent ones.

    These APC members are blood thirsty individuals.

  21. i love nigerian.we can talk,quote laws,quote constutution,inclyding amended version to defend wrong doings.none of them will quote laws and constitution asking politicians to give us good roads,increased allowance,good health,affordable loans and etc.
    enough is enough,we are stubborn and most times needs iron hands.1999 cases of ballot..they follwed constitution,even if few arrested.. 2003 same ballot snatchin..it shows that the constitution wasnt favourable because politicians send this guys amd bend the law to favour them when caught.so now,if you go and snatch. you might pay for your life..saving us the stress of wasting precious time on that. and no way politician can bend the rule.my take is..if you love yourself,do what is right.no go near ballot box oh.just vote and jejely stay afar.i support buhari on this.

  26. It is high time we face the reality, if you want the president to be begging people not to snatch ballot boxes, you are on your own. Snatch ballot boxes at the expense of your own life, it is as simple as that.

  27. My own is that we all want a free and fair elections.As he is the chief security officer of the state there are ways for him to deal with ballot boxes being snatched. After all we have the law enforcement officials that should be their jobs to protect lives and also to safe guard the boxes. We don't want anyone losing his or her lives all because of the elections.

  28. Those shouting free and fair election, was 2015 election free and fair? Wasn't it rigged by Buhari and fellow APC members. Didn't we all see how under aged children voted at the North. The earlier Nigerians wake up the better
