24 Hours before Nigeria’s Parliamentary Elections Jega came out to tell the world that all is set and ready.
The Elections schedule for April 2 2011 has now been cancelled. Jega said that it will now hold on Monday the 4th.
Jega is now singing a new tune that Election materials did not arrive. The same song that Maurice Iwu sang in 2007. We have now gone from wuruwuru to jagajaga. But why didn’t he say that the day before? Why did he wait until Nigerians have trooped out to election centers and some voters have even been accredited and were waiting to cast their votes?
In 2007 election materials did not arrive from South Africa. The Natural disaster in Japan has now been blamed for the man-made disaster in Nigeria. Japanese will be shocked and probably angry to know that the natural disaster that put them in mourning is the song on the lips of INEC and Jega.
One of my friends said he is investigating the real cause of the postponement. I am sure this postponement is connected to fraudulent activities. With time the bigger picture will emerge.
I argued in august 2010 that Nigeria does not need any elections in 2011. I stand firmly by my opinions in that article that we still don’t need any election in 2011. Anyone who wants to know what we need should read the article.
By the way, how foolish are the Nigerian government and INEC? Why can’t Election papers be printed in Nigeria?
That is just one question out of the thousands of questions that we are now asking.
