THE DUMO LULU BRIGGS GOVERNORSHIP CAMPAIGN ORGANISATION
Saturday February 16th, 2019
The Governorship candidate of the Accord Party in Rivers State, Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs has reacted to the sudden rescheduling of the General Elections only a few hours before the processes commenced. Chief Lulu-Briggs expressed concern that the suddenness of the decision must have caught all stakeholders by surprise but encouraged Nigerians and the international community to maintain faith in the process.
According to Lulu-Briggs, INEC is managed by eminent Nigerians who should take decisions in the interest of the nation. We should therefore give them the benefit of the doubt and patiently wait for the next scheduled date. It is better to do it later and get it right than rush into an election that may have credibility issues. We must as a people bear the sacrifices that would help us get things better.
In his statement Chief Lulu Briggs, said “Yes, the rescheduling has cost us enormous economic, social and psychological resources as a nation, political parties, politicians and even citizens. However, no price should be too much for us to pay for quality outcomes and for the general good of our dear country. Let us therefore exercise more patience and go out to perform our civic duty on the new date for the good of Rivers State and Nigeria.”
God bless Rivers State and Nigeria.
