ANOTHER USELESS ELECTION

Adeola Aderounmu

You would have thought the season of madness was over. But alas! It has become an established trait-Nigeria will NEVER be able to conduct a free and fair election. In Ekiti state Western Nigeria, the shame of a nation has been brought to fore once again.

We are back to what we discussed in-toto in 2007 when Mr. Yar Adua was forced on Nigerians because that was the wish of those who have taken our nation into custody. Nigerians are still living in custody 49 years after the country became independent.

The election results in Ekiti have now been fully doctored to meet the taste of the evil ruling party. Elections in Nigeria remain a political nightmare. It is still one thing that Nigerians are not good at. It remains a do-or-die affair as Obasanjo mentioned in 2007. It has always been like that before he confirmed it-that politicians are out there to win at all cost!

The underlying factor here is corruption. A politician in Nigeria can steal and loot as much as he or she wants and get away with it. This is why everyone wants to get into political offices. This is why violence, mayhem and absurdity have come to characterize Nigerian Politics. Politics is the easiest way to wealth in Nigeria. Politicians are mainly thieves who want to satisfy their evil desires. There are few exceptional, dedicated politicians in Nigeria-you can count them on your finger tips.

So, the shame of this nation continues. This country Nigeria cannot conduct a single credible election after 49 years of independence. The only election that seemed credible which was conducted in 1993 was cancelled by the military gangsters headed by Babangida. Nigeria is yet to recover from that rude shock and it seems the country is jinxed for eternity.

In Ekiti we have just seen the demonstration of another abuse of the word-democracy. The so called giant of Africa is behaving like a dwarf among intelligent nations. This country needs help!

  1. If you want to know what 419 really means, all you have to do is look at how Nigerians are being fooled by politicians in the name of democracy while looting the National coffers .
    These rogues masquerading as politicians have
    conned the entire nation by imposing a constitution on Nigerians which gives the President and his henchmen most of the powers of checks and balances. Hence, their abilities to
    steal and rig elections with impunity. Now, is the time for every Nigerian to stand up to these crooks and demand a constitutional reform that will decentralise power from the President and his henchmen in favor of those who truly govern the ordinary Nigerians namely,the States Governors and Local Governments.

  3. Another very useless election…another way to divert Nigerian money illegally when the results were going to be same…what do you call someone who does the same thing and expect a different result? Well you said it and maybe they are: madly power-drunk!
