Punishment For Snatching Ballot Boxes In America Is Death - Tony Momoh by nairavsdollars(f): 7:37pm On Feb 20, 2019
Temidayo Akinsuyi, Lagos

Prince Tony Momoh, a former Minister of Information on Wednesday said President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive to security agencies to deal ruthlessly with ballot box snatchers ahead of the 2019 general election is in order.

Speaking in a chat with Daily Independent, Momoh, one of the national leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) said Nigerians do not expect the President to give national honours to those who committed crime by declaring war on due process and free, fair elections.

He said “What is snatching of ballot box? Snatching a box is a crime. It is declaration of war on due process and free, fair election. Anyone who declares war on due process is committing treason against due process.

“Those condemning Buhari, are they suggesting that anybody who snatches a box on Election Day should be given a national honour?

“I don’t know what Nigerians are talking about. In America, if you attempt to subvert due process, you can pay for it with your life.”

Hmmm.

That is the irony in the life of a typical pig.

Pigs will not stop making reference to how US is light-years ahead of Nigeria.

Tell them to behave like the Americans, they insult you down to your forefathers.

They will tell you US is a sane country, yet some of them who stepped foot in that US end up in jail for being more stupid than goats.

Now, the punishment for ballot snatching in US is death, but in Nigeria, pigs call it tyrany.

According to pigs, a ballot box snatcher is entitled to all expenses paid trip vacation anywhere in the universe.

American govt won’t kill anybody for anything like that. It’s a lie. The death penalty is strictly for extreme murder cases.
Even if anything like that would happen (which it won’t), it’ll be after a fair trial

This was the words of the party chair whose president gave the military the go-ahead to kill ballot box snatchers.

"President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday..revealed that APC was able to win the state’s governorship election held months back with the aid of remove control.

Buhari, who failed to provide details of what he meant by remote control, said: “I know how much trouble we had in the last election here. I know by remote control through so many sources how we managed to maintain the party (APC) in power in this state.”

But a ballot box snatchers or criminal can totally shoot you down in what is jungle justice?


I was watching a movie yesterday, named "Death Wish". Crime rate increased. People are shut and killed almost daily. Many of those cases are unsolved by the police (more than 80%). Suddenly, a man on the hood appears, a vigilante. He kills people who kills people; Murderers, drug dealers, rapist are scared.

Police comes into the scene and are interested in apprehending the killer of killers. They want to bring him to justice. To them, it more important to bring the vigilante to justice than solve their unsolved cases. That crime rate was reducing, that streets were becoming safe again was not as important as bring the vigilante. Some call it a slippery slope.

What is wrong with this picture?

Why are our politicians always comparing us with America?? Yet they fly straight to America at the slightest opportunity.. grin

Comparing yourself with america’s System is an insult to humanity. America’s President is not a cow rearer! America has value for human life, America has basic amenities for human sustenance, America has laws/regulations for every citizen, America has a database for everyone, america’s Borders are not porous! Nigeria does not have any of those things mentioned!

It's a lie joor. USA does not kill like that. Even extreme baddest cases, they don't kill. Show us USA constitution where it's written and we will all give buhari a round of applause for trying to make Nigeria be like USA. Aside, shey buhari has started doing USA law course that you are using USA law to justify buhari statement. Ohhh! I see, all those medical trips na lie. Buhari dey go USA go study USA constitution course. It's getting clearer now.

Does America use ballot boxes /ballot papers? The voting I'm aware of in the US is electronic and transparent - except when hacked. America has a reliable database of all it's citizens and everyone can be tracked. Nigeria FG doesn't want to do that because of their currupt plans that kept everyone aback.

Even in Ondo State, the penalty was death by firing squad, that's why Erujeje was gunned down in Akungba and Temimowei in Ile tuntun in 2003 because they both snatched ballot boxes.

What some folks here don't know is that Buhari’s order will be used to avert penalty for the massacre coming on on Saturday.


All civilians massacred on Saturday =accidental discharge = ballot box snatching.
