Reintroduce ‘WAI’, DPC tells Buhari [Daily Trust Newspaper]

The national chairman of the Democratic Peoples Congress (DPC), Reverend Olusegun Peters, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to reintroduce War Against Indiscipline (WAI) in the country.
Buhari popularised the concept of WAI during his days as military head of state, from 1984 to 1985.

The WAI was aimed at enforcing strict adherence to disciplinary behaviours.
‎Speaking, yesterday, at the Konrad Adenauer Shiftung Conference held at Protea Hotel in Abuja, Peters‎ called on the federal government to strictly enforce electoral laws, while appealing to political parties to imbibe issue-based politics devoid of violence.‎
The DPC boss proposed that electoral offenders should be prosecuted to serve as deterrent to others, saying that it was the practice of “do-or-die politics” that led to corruption.
Peters, who said WAI, if reintroduced, should be championed by civil servants, called for monitoring, trial and prosecution of those found guilty of embezzling pension funds.
On practice of conducting inconclusive elections, Reverend Peters said: “The DPC strongly condemns the frequent inconclusive elections across the country and demand a stop to this electoral impasse that has made mockery of our democracy.”
