This was contained in a statement issued by the president of NLC, Ayuba Wabba which also criticized the deployment of military personnel across the country.

Wabba said, “In the spirit of the peace accord signed by the major political parties prior to the 2019 general election, we urge all persons aggrieved by the conduct of the elections to refrain from self-help.

“Those with genuine grievances should resort to the legal process for the redress of all wrongs.

“As patriots who are committed to nation-building, we have no other option but to collectively work towards the sustenance, improvement and deepening of our democracy. There is no option to democracy.”

The statement added, “Despite the fears expressed by Nigerians with respect to the deployment of the military during elections, soldiers were deployed presumably to preempt ballot box snatching, destruction of voting materials and arrest any drift to widespread violence.
