ELECTION VIOLENCE AND MISCONDUCT IS DELIBERATE – ROTIMI SANKORE

LOGIC AND CRITICAL THINKING SHOULD BE TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS.
Despite the deployment of very senior security officers to the various local government areas during the just concluded general elections, the violence and intimidation that characterized the entire process was unprecedented. According to Rotimi Sankore, the violence that mare the election was orchestrated by elements in charge of the security apparatus.
“The violence was a deliberate strategy by the political parties to out-rig one another. The more violent a group are, the more the pendulum of victory may swing your way. It leaves a sour taste in the mouth, and it is a degradation of humanity and civilization” .
Sankore, who is a journalist and policy development expert spoke on an early morning programme on Nigeria Info 99.3.FM. According to him, ” even if the opposition party had won, it does not change the entire scenario, the narrative would still be the same”.
He advised that logic and critical thinking should be taught in schools and colleges in order to inculcate in the people as well as in the security forces, the right sense of conduct.
