Power derived from rigged elections not from God – Shehu Sani

Senator Shehu Sani, a former federal lawmaker has countered those with the insinuation that all winners of the just concluded general elections had the backing of God.

Some politicians, particularly those of the ruling party, had called on Nigerians to accept the outcome of the polls, stating that it is the will of God.

However, those of the position party, including the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi had insisted that the outcome of the polls was not the will of God, asking Nigerians not to accept the results.

Speaking on Arise TV, Obi had said, “The problem of Nigeria is accepting what is unacceptable. That’s not God’s wish. God’s wish is when you do the right thing”.

In a similar vein, Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker, said, “power derived from rigged election is not from God”.

In a post on his verified Facebook page, Senator Sani said, “after they buy votes, falsified figures and rigged elections, they will bring in religion to launder and legitimise their evil; and want you to believe that power is from God”.
