The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Petroleum (Downstream), Senator Kabiru Garba Marafa (APC, Zamfara) has described ballot box snatching as a civilian coup.

Speaking after paying a congratulatory visit to president Muhammadu Buhari in the Villa, he said there was nothing wrong with the statement of the president on ballot box snatchers.

“If you listen to the comment of Mr. President about ballot box snatching, which a lot of people made so much noise about which I think is unnecessary. Unless if you are one of the ballot box snatchers, I don’t see why you cannot support Mr President in what he said.

“As a politician, I know the problem of ballot box snatching, whatever you think you can take about it, I think it should be a welcome idea. People should be discouraged from snatching ballot boxes because it is equivalent of civilian coup,” he said.

On the rejection of election result by the opposition, he said: “It is an inherent human behavior to always reject failure, so there is nothing new about the opposition’s rejection of President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory.

“The most important thing is that success has been recorded and been accepted by Nigerians and even the international community. We just pray to God almighty to give the president abundant health and the will power to continue to bring to logical conclusion, his fight against corruption because it is a serious problem in Nigeria.”
