According to him, Nigeria had made gains in its democratic growth this year, adding that further progress would be made in the coming years.
"I think that 2015 will go down in Nigeria political history as a
glorious year. Nigerians have deliberately understood what multi-party
democracy is. But we thank God for technology, for the PVC and the card
reader. If not this luck we had with technology and the insistence of
constituencies to make sure they were used (we would not have won).In
two political zones where they were subverted, the people wanted to
vote, but they were not allowed to vote.
"They continued with what they used to do in their party offices or
their sitting rooms: write the results, go to radio house and television
house and announce the result and say whoever does not want the result
should go to court. How many people can go to court when they are
struggling to get the next day's meal? Where will they get the millions
to give to those Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs).
"We have made a big stride this year and I assure you, God willing, if
we survive the next four years, Nigerians will be in a position to
confidently raise their head and elect their own representatives and
leaders. They will choose those they want as their representatives at
the local governments, states and the centre.
"I will fight for free, fair and credible election because that is why I remained in politics," he said.
