DSK while condemning the killings in the state said Nigeria at this stage of democracy should not be experiencing such dysfunctionality during elections. It is unfortunate that we lost our loved ones and many other Tarabans at post elections due to electoral violence. This is so unfortunate for us as a state and even for our democracy. We must move away from this primitive African psyche that demonizes loosing election as an act of failure instead of an opportunity for re-strategizing and re-inventing paths for progress. This dysfunctional mental construct will never help the development of our hard earned Democracy," he said.
He said: “The 2019 presidential/ National Assembly and Governorship/Assembly elections have come and gone. They were keenly contested and were largely free and fair. I believe strongly that in the modern school of democracy, there is no victor and vanquished in political outcomes. Victory belongs only to democracy and the people who are direct beneficiaries of democratic processes."said DSK.
