You lack understanding of Nigeria – Northern group blasts Peter Obi

“South Africa has a long history of democracy, having gone
through significant political reform and transformation over several decades of
practice. On the other hand, Nigeria only transitioned to democracy in 1999
after years of military rule,” explained Suleiman.

 

According to him, Obi’s attempt to juxtapose the electoral
experiences of the two countries demonstrates a lack of understanding of their
respective political landscapes.

 

“Peter Obi’s attempt to compare the electoral processes of
South Africa and Nigeria is quite ridiculous.

 

“The two countries are at different stages of democratic
development, and it would be more prudent to focus on addressing the specific
challenges facing the Nigerian electoral system rather than drawing unwarranted
comparisons,” he said.

 

The group explained that the Nigerian electoral system is
still in its infancy and that comparing it to South Africa’s more mature
democracy is not only inaccurate but also unfair to the people of Nigeria, who
have been working diligently to build a functioning democracy.
