Why Acts Of Electoral Violence Will Continue Among Nigerian Youths – Falana


Human rights activist, Femi Falana (SAN) has revealed that the high level of unemployment and illiteracy in the nation would ensure that electoral malpractices continue in Nigeria.

Speaking during an interview on ‘Sunrise Daily’ programme on Channels Television, Falana stated that the Nigerian government has failed to alleviate the suffering of the people despite all their lofty promises.

He believed that the youths would continue to engage in acts of electoral violence pending the time government would listen to their cry.

“In a country where almost 20 million children of school age are on the streets, where we have about 40 million illiterates, where the majority of graduates are roaming the streets, in such an environment, you can preach till Jesus returns, but that will not stop people from engaging in acts of electoral violence.”
