“A New Us Is Possible In Nigeria”, saying until we fashion out a lawful way or lawful ways of addressing legion of electoral matters before the stipulated date of 29 May of any electoral year.
“All those inaugurated on the day and their elections are subsequently nullified by the court, up to the Supreme Court, such people must refund their salaries and other emoluments within the period they held forth illegally.
