Ezeemo Identifies Electoral Malpractice As Bane Of Nigeria’s Democracy by okeychris(m): 11:10am On Jun 14

As Nigeria marks democracy day, a foremost philanthropist, Mr Godwin Ezeemo has identified bad governance and electoral malpractice as among factors militating the country growth.

Ezeemo, who is contesting for the Anambra State 2021 governorship poll under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), regretted that the country was still not where she should be despite been in democracy for 22 years.

“We are celebrating 22 years of democracy but a lot is still left behind when talk about the dividends on ground. If you look at the level of achievements, you will discover that we have failed to live up to expectations. Most, if not all elections are still far from being credible, the security situation is bad, the rate of killings continue to gain momentum, the economy is not buoyant, the roads are bad, poor electricity supply is there unchecked, the rate of poverty and unemployment are on the high side, water is not running and so on, so I would rather say that we still have a long way to go and the way to go is to allow credible elections for people to chose their leaders,” he maintained.

The Umuchu-Agauata LGA born, however, congratulated Nigeria at 22, even as he celebrated erstwhile governor of Peter Obi of Anambra and former President Goodluck Jonathan, describing them as two top leading heroes of democracy in Nigeria since the return of democratic leadership in the country in 1999.

To him, Obi remains hero of democracy especially in the Southeast due to his steering performance as governor, while Jonathan is national having conceded defeat to the Presidential candidate of other political party in the person of Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 election, thereby saving lives and property of many.

He further called for immediate implementation of the Electoral Reform as gazetted by the National Assembly to put irregularities in proper checks and allow the choice of the electorates to prevail, evena as he noted that if allowed to lead Anambra as governor, he deliver the dividends of democracy as Peter Obi did.
