March 18 Guber Election: FG talks tough on plans to disrupt polls


Ahead of the March 18 Governorship and House of Assembly elections, the Federal Government has warned politicians and political parties to stop all attempts aimed at disrupting the polls on Saturday.


The Government made the position following heightened tension over heated politicking ongoing in States where the poll is under hot contest.


Maj-Gen. Babagana Monguno, the National Security Adviser (NSA), disclosed this on Tuesday in Abuja at the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security meeting.


According to him, security agencies must work against the possibility of “a terrible or apocalyptic” situation in the next few days, before and during the elections.


“What we don’t want to happen is for anybody to take the law into his or her own hands. We will give the maximum support to all entities involved in this process. And we are also calling on political parties to call their people to order,” he said.
