Aside the visa ban, this will encourage Kogites in future participation in any elections in Kogi state, as the last experience had discouraged many Nigerians, that votes will not count from Kogi experience.

Abdul says this is the only way to also encourage the tenets of democracy and democratic practice as being propagated by the US, EU, UAE and other developed countries.

He urged the super powers to urgently consider this suggestions and declare the light day day victims of Kogi elections as ‘Heroes of Nigeria Democracy’

The group commends the UN for listening to the plights of ordinary Nigerians, and quest to install peoples choice, not minding the ugly development in the last Kogi election.
