Clark, Okurounmu, Ezeife others demand Jega’s sack, arrest

INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega

Some Southern Nigerian elders, under the aegis of Southern Nigerian Peoples Assembly, SNPA, have called for the sack and arrest of the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Attahiru Jega.

The group also canvassed the postponement of this month’s general election scheduled for 14 and 28.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, the SNPA alleged that Mr. Jega directed the release of the Permanent Voter Cards, PVCs, to emirs, district heads and some unnamed top politicians in the North.

At the conference were a former Federal Commissioner for Information, Edwin Clark, former governor of Anambra State, Chukwuemeka Ezeife; a member of the pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Femi Okunrounmu; and a former Information Minister, Walter Ofonagoro and several others.

The group, which is rooting for the re-election of President Goodluck Jonathan, said the directive of the INEC chairman was the reason about 100 per cent distribution of the PVCs had been achieved in the North while only 50 per cent was achieved so far in the South.

“We authoritatively gathered with unassailable and incontrovertible evidence that the INEC Chairman, who was away in Lagos for an official engagement, through one of his National Commissioners that represented him, met with select leaders of the Northern Elders Forum, led by Prof. Ango Abdullahi, on the 20th August 2014, where strategies and modalities for enthroning a President of Northern extraction through vote rigging were discussed and agreed upon, Mr. Okurounmu said.

“The meeting was sequel to an earlier meeting of Northern Elders Forum held on 16th August, 2014 at Arewa House, Kaduna, under the chairmanship of Ambassador Yusuf Maitama Sule where it was resolved that all avenues must be explored towards enthroning a President of Northern extraction in the forthcoming 2015 elections.

He stated further, “In addition, Jega reportedly directed the release of PVCs in their catchment states to Emirs, District Heads and top politicians and not necessarily to the voters themselves, a situation that culminated in some voters being in possession of two to three PVCs.

“Despite Jega’s public admission that the Commission has all funds it requires to conduct the 2015 elections, the group was aware that the Northern Elders Forum obtained and distributed 150 pieces of laptops to INEC for each of the Northern states.

“This accounted for nearly 100 per cent PVC collection rate, especially in the North West states, as compared with less than 50 per cent collection rate in the Southern states. This is the reason why Lagos State, with a sophisticated population of over 5.2 million, has not been distributed more than 2.5 million PVCs.”

The group called for the re-constitution and repositioning of INEC and that the postponement of the elections would allow the Commission conduct credible and acceptable elections.

It also threatened to mobilize southerners to ensure elections are not held in that part of the country if the Federal Government fails to act on its demand.

When contacted by PREMIUM TIMES, the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Kayode Idowu, simply said, “no comment”.

    Who be the southerner they want to mobilised? Certainly not people from the south west. Also, I hope yoruba leaders deir especially. Okunronmu knows that he is speaking for himself and his family not me or any of my extended family cos on FeBuhari 14 I stand.

    • nosky

      They are shameless .Who make them leaders of southern Nigeria.Let see how many they will mobilise from Edo state.

      Mr/Mrs/Miss truth. Except you are Buhari or a member of his family, I would honestly advise you to work out your own salvation. Those of you who are about to witness Nigerian Drama, like I witnessed in 1993 should temper your expectations. Nothing good can or will come out of Nigeria as presently constituted. There are some people, Babangida, Obasanjo, Buhari, Danjuma, Gusau, who are determined to keep Nigeria the way it is. It appears they want to dump Jonathan but they don’t know about Buhari. They do not care about you. Just watch.

    GEJ really has a major problem if what has been asserted coming from “elders” of South South is true, then I believe we have also lost the wisdoms of Elders here. Are the district heads, emirs etc, are they not Nigerians? Come on Ezeife, Clark and who next. Is aging now correlated with lost of decency? Thank God the decency of Yorubas surpassed these mediocrely thinking. Whether you like it or not, CHANGE! YES WE CAN.

  • Nuga A

    When you are total confused and all your plan has failed you,you are now seeing the hand writing on the wall that the election is not going to favor you,all you have to do now is to find a way to scuffle the election by any means available and create chaos in the country by trying to instigate ethnic hatred with this utterance and action.God almighty will not allow you people to create violence in this country,everything will go on fine and the election will hold peacefully.

    • Lanre

      Many are lost, Nuga. Many have also not read their history to know that Nigeria has built on a foundation of injustice.This is the reason why some of us have been asking for Nigeria to go confederate, at the minimum. Whether the elections hold on February 14 or not is immaterial. Whether Jonathan wins a third term (by default) is immaterial. The fact is Nigeria is unworkable. Many believe that by sweeping the rot under the rug, the issues will be forgotten. No. It can never be. When the Germans were defeated in the Second World War, the World rose up and dealt with the Nazis. In Nigeria, those who committed open crimes are celebrated. Abacha & Babangida, two individuals who (Like Hitler, Goebbels and Goehring) should have their memories and those of their associates wiped off, continue to strut the landscape. Their associates are today top government officials. My fellow commentators, Nigeria will know no peace until justice is done. Justice is recognizing we are different and allowing the various ethnic groups self-determination.

The Council of States shot down the attempt of these friends and supporters of President Goodluck Jonathan under the aegis of Southern Nigeria Peoples Assembly (SNPA) to make Jonathan a life president.

    “Igbos Hate Me Because of Biafra War” – Buhari In BBC Hausa.

    Maj Gen Muhammadu Buhari has dropped the bombshell, on the reason he has been losing election in Igboland and parts of Nigeria where Igbos are residing, stating that it is because he was involved in the Nigerian civil war.

    The former dictator speaking today on BBC Hausa services monitored in kaduna, said with regrets that, “the igbos hate him for what happened during the Biafran war”. “I don’t have any regret, and at such do not owe any apology to them, infact if there is a repeat of the civil war again, I will kill more Igbos to save the country”.

    The APC presidential candidate, added that this was the reason they never bothered to vote for him anywhere in Nigeria.

    It is shame, that a man that is aspiring to rule the whole country, not part of it, will talk in this manner.

    BEWARE, THIS MAN HAS NEVER TALKED ABOUT PEACE, BUT BLOODBATH AND PAIN.

    from Michael Faraday Michael, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos.

    “Just now, while I was waiting for INEC to come and give my PVC at my polling station here in Amuwo Odofin, an APC agent called me with this number 012900125 telling me that if I’m ready to vote for APC I should go to Shomolu Local Government Chairman’s Office to collect my PVC.
    My questions are how did APC know about the whereabouts of my PVC.
    What is my PVC doing in Shomolu Local Government Chairman’s office.
    Is INEC now a branch of APC?

  • Concerned

    They are lying! How could 100% PVC’s be delivered in the North – when the North East is on fire and there are so many IDP’s!

    How can the South have less than 50% when Akwa. Ibom and other SS. & SE states have publicly declared distribution rates of 80%.

    In fact the lowest rates of distribution are inthe APC strongholds of Lagos and Kano

  • Mosaku 147

    SNPA rings a bell. o’hell,that is Raymond Dokpesi’s creation. So after AIT failed in their media campaign against The Change Himself,he has now enlisted the support of expired so called elders. Is it okunronmumu that does not have a PVC or the drunk called ofonagoro or Clark the senile old moron or Eseife the pauper? Shameless Clark had better go to help his wife in ogun state before she ‘falls’ for drug kingpin kashamu.

To these and their fellow maggots, tens of trillions of Naira has been stolen and they want to continue unhindered. That us why they are trying desperately to retain this evil regime of crooks vampires and armed robbers by frustrating the determination of Nigerians to throw this shameless government to the dustbin. They should be held responsible for any breakdown of law and order resulting from the kind of desperate dirty talks they have made their daily business since they see the source of their illicit aggrandizement collapsing.

  • Okey

    It is incontrovertible that Jega and APC only want to precipitate crisis and a state of anarchy in the country. INEC used two years to distribute 45 million PVCs, they now have developed a magical wand to distribute 23 million PVCs in two (2) days ! That is a guarantee from Professional Liars.

    It is obvious that APC is least interested in a free, fair and credible election. Otherwise, since May 29 hand-over date is sacrosanct, election held 30 days before May 29 which will accommodate registered voters in all states should not be so distasteful to any honest political party.

    I have always maintained that all politicians who insist that election must hold February 14, must recall all their children from abroad to Nigeria and show them on national television as a precondition and sign of their readiness to be wholly affected by any consequence therefrom.

  • Bye bye GEJ!

    It’s now clear more than ever before the Jona is going back to oteke town! Jega has suddenly became enemy for the crime he has not committed. Jonathan got the power without sweat and that’s why he didn’t know the value of that office until now when it’s eminent that he will lose election. He looked down on the man who single handedly brought out of oteke town and made him ( after God) the Vice President. Let’s see who calls the shot between those and you Jonathan! You broke the promise and renegade on all the terms you signed and as nemesis caught with you now every thing and every one is against you.

They do not matter any more. Edwin Clark was federal commissioner for information a thousand years ago and he still finds a way to parley it into something he uses to extort money from government to government, reinventing himself in associations like this whenever an election comes around. In 2002, it began as Bendel Elders Association, reincarnated as Bendel Consultative Council, later it was renamed South South Peoples Assembly. Now it is Southern Nigeria Peoples Assembly. Haba, stop heating up the system and get a life.

  • tyson

    The allegations are too scary for comfort–and if true–then we are in trouble–no wonder APC has never troubled her soul to campaign for elections waiting for Jega to rig the election for a certificate forger like–Buhari and tinubu

    • tyson

      Practically everything about the atrocities of Mohammadu Buhari is in the public domain and one is not going to regurgitate them. But one is presently concerned about his soullessness and wickedness. Any human being who professed disdain for “the Truth” as Buhari did in 1984 is a soulless person. Buhari told Nigerian journalists in 1984 that it did not matter if they wrote and printed “true” stories, if he Buhari or his administration did not like it, they would be jailed. Soulless Buhari went ahead, after jailing Tunde Thompson and Nduka Irabor, to promulgate pro-active laws to murder three innocent Nigerians – Lawal Ojuolape, Bernard Ogedegbe and Bartholomew Owoh. He has never shown any remorse and he has never apologized.

      It was under the Buhari administration that Nigerians first queued for what was then known and called “essential commodities” such as milk, sugar and beverages. Buhari never showed mercy. Rather he gloated, intimidated, threatened and persecuted. He was really mean and cruel to Nigerians. Worse of all, he has not changed a bit. Those who are postulating that he could not do that under a democratic set up are being naïve and uncritical in their thinking. Such people are oblivious of the power of the Nigerian presidency which is imperial in nature and dictatorial in character. The fact that Jonathan is a weakling as a President is irrelevant.

      He allowed Umaru Dikko and Ubah Ahmed (who was actually arrested and detained) to escape to London after the coup of 1983. But because Umaru Dikko would always run his mouth and he was criticizing Buhari’s administration in London, Buhari decided to crate him like a merchandize and have him imported to Nigeria. If not for the vigilance of the always culpable British government, the Nigerian Customs were getting ready to clear Dikko as an expensive luggage. It would be a travesty and a tragedy rolled into one, to have Buhari as the President of Nigeria. Buhari is a dangerous being not fit for any decent society. To install an iniquitous person like him as the President of Nigeria is a disaster waiting to happen.

      “The grounds on which General Buhari is being promoted as the alternative choice are not only shaky, but pitifully naive. History matters. Records are not kept simply to assist the weakness of memory, but to operate as guides to the future.
      Prof. Wole Soyinka

  • hummm

    I guess this is GEJ plan C since he cannt stop the election from happening. This level of desperation is so obvious and sad to see people act so pathetic and desperate just to save their skin.

  • True Nigerian

    Apparently, these cheap old liars did not know this information; and if they knew it, they didn’t tell us until after we received many reports that a plan was being hatched to secure a postponement of the election. Utter nonsense! I am not a kid. And I expect Ohaneze to quickly refute this cheap article that calls himself Ezeife. I know Yoruba leaders will stamp their feet on the ground against these lazy cheap and silly liars. So I am calling on Ohaneze to quickly disgrace Ezeife by distancing us (Igbos) from the narrow self-centred traitors called Ezeife and Edwin Clark.

    As Igbos, if we believe that a failed Ijaw Presidency like Jonathan is now worth dying for, let us start the love affair by returning all the Igbo properties that were illegally appropriated by Niger Deltans after they were falsely labelled “abandoned Properties”. This is the sixth year of the Jonathan presidency – that is more than enough time to return those properties to their Igbo owners.

    Apparently, these gratified empty noisemakers were waiting to see if INEC will be cowered into submission to postpone the election. That was plan A, which obviously failed woefully. And then, the plan B was that the Council of State would be used to postpone the election. That one failed too. And I guess this is the next stage of their suicidal plans – to cause ethnic and regional conflict. It will fail too.

    Ezeife is not more Igbo than the rest of us. Let him mobilise his own Southerners and let us mobilise ours. And we will see who has the clout to command the boycott of election by Southerners! Empty vessels!

    Clark, Okurounmu, Ezeife and others are all enemies of the country. They are political contractors and jobbers par excellence. Any Government in Power (AGIP) is their motto. They are Shameless old hypocrites and sycophants. They’ve all stolen the wealth of other people’s children and grand children. They are now struggling to equally steal the wealth of other people’s great grand children and great great grand children. They are callous, mean and conscienceless. They are slaves to money and power. They are Godless, ritualistic and amoral. At this stage of their lives, they dwell on rumors, half truths and blatant lies. The choice of going to their graves in peace and not in pieces is solely theirs now. Truth must prevail. Change must come to Nigeria, with or without them.

    Personally, I will like to see the break up of Nigeria. The black race and indeed Africa must look else where for redemption. Meanwhile, the elections should be postponed for now. God bless the black race and may God destroy anything that will set our race back and if Nigeria represent such, please God split the country Nigeria.

    • May God destroy the attempt to postpone the elections because it will be a set back for the black race.

      • IAMAFRICAN

        Nigeria represents everything that is wrong with Africa. I do not see success for a country built on false foundations.
        The only thing that will set the race back is ethnic blood spilling in the country because of its size and the elections must be postponed to save our lives and not Nigeria.

  • Shuaibu Bola Victor

    I dont know while Jega has become tribalised to the extent that his sense of justice and fairness has failed him. We can recall vividly that about 3months ago, Jega had schemed to create additional 30,000 polling units in the North without any consideration given to the Southern part of the country because he came from North and is supporting the candidate from the North; Buhari.
    It was during that period that Nigerians began to question Jega’s integrity. Now that it has been proven beyond doubts that Jega is biased, will it not amount to injustice if Federal government of Nigeria continue to retain him as the INEC chairman?

    The most honourable thing for Jega to do at this moment is for him to resign and allow another in his stead.He has shown Nigerians that he has lost his integrity, he has been bribed by the All Progressive Congress(APC) to rig elections in their favour.
    Please, let Attahiru Jega resign or else, Jega will rig the election as he has already started the manipulations in earnest.

    ATTAHIRU JEGA MUST RESIGN, JEGA SHOULD TELL NIGERIANS HOW MUCH HE HAS COLLECTED FROM THE APC, JEGA IS ALREADY BIASED, THEREFORE HE MUST RESIGN HONORABLY AND IMMEDIATELY.

And, if Clark proves too old to waka pass ihm balcony, ugly He-Goat, Ezeife and Ofornagoro should carry him on their shoulders with the help of others… better still, this group should recruit those noisy drunks calling themselves militants to go distribute cards because their clown will get dumped if elections are held today.

    These old mean bastard men are totally useless and I am ashamed that they are still alive. It is one allegation or the other, one negative plan or the other from jonathan and pdp camp. The most painful thing for me is that these are old men that should be teaching their grand and great grandchildren the right things of life but that is not the case. As for clark especially, he knows his monthly subventions from jonathan will stop after May 29th, 2015, for ezeife, okunronmu and ofonagoro are men of low characters throughout their lives. When they said that they have incontrovertible evidence that means they have it either on tape or written why then can’t they publish it with their so called piece? These are men who have been suppressing the growth of Nigeria for more than 50 years and are bent to continue their evil ways. How can they sleep well at night peacefully when their main objective is to derail anything good about Nigeria? It is the same Jega that conducted the last election when jonathan swept the polls without favoring anybody but now the momentum have changed, they are branding him as a bad man. I am sorry for this country because we now know those people who have been stunting Nigeria’s growth. JEGA, I AM FROM SW AND GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOUR LEARDERSHIP AT INEC.

    It baffles me to see these APC unruly e-rats staying awake all through nights scheming to sweep truth under the carpet even when the truth is quite monumental. More surprising is the fact that these APC e-rats cannot even allow the JEGA who perpetrated the wrong acts to speak before they would start defending him.
    This has simply shown that Jega is working in synergy with them. They have now become the mouth piece of the INEC and the mouth piece of JEGA himself. Wonders shall never end.
    But we, Nigerians cannot be deterred from speaking the truth. Truth speaks louder than lies. No matter how many times that lies are told, truth must resurface eventually. Nigerians are for GEJ. GEJ is popular both in the SOUTHERN PART OF NIGERIA and NORTHERN PART OF NIGERIA.
    NOBODY will stop him, unlike BUHARI who is a religious fundamentalist supported by a few in the North. APC is poised to rig the coming elections and as such had bought over INEC chairman, Attahiru Jega.
    We Nigerians must resist APC and BUHARI with the last drop of our blood on the election day.

Jega has made a decision long before now to ensure that the elections hold as slated on FeBuhari 14, 2015. Jega will not yield to Jonathan and his associates.

    INEC Manipulating PVCs to Favour Buhari, Says Balarabe Musa

    05 Feb 2015

    Font Size: a / A

    Former Kaduna state Governor, Alhaji Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa

    * Group alleges move to disenfranchise 26m voters

    By Onyebuchi Ezigbo( This Day News)

    A political interest organization, Credible Alternative Alliance (CAA) led by former Kaduna state Governor, Alhaji Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa has alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is tilting the distribution of Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to favour areas believed to be strongholds of All Progressives Congress’ candidate, General Muhammed Buhari.

    The group presented a statistical analysis of the distribution of PVCs which showed the number of registered voters yet to collect their PVCs in various zones.

    According to CAA, South-East has (3,287, 530) , South West (7,411,205), South-South (3,844,370) , North-East (2,429,763), North West (4,835,556), North Central (3,907,849) and FCT(421,559).

    On the distribution of PVCs, CAA said it has observed “a criminal gross disparity of voter spread designed to tilt the election to a pre-determined outcome.

    The group insists that all the 68.8 million registered voters must be given unfettered access to freely collect their PVCs and cast their vote as provided for in the constitution, adding that it would be forced to take INEC to court if that condition was not met.

    “Let us call a spade, a spade. There are two main contenders for the Presidency in this election. The analyzed data above depicts a worrying trend. Voters in the zones that tend to support President Goodluck Jonathan are massively disenfranchised by the application of the so-called PVCs debacle, 40% to 50% of voters in the these regions who are lawfully and duly registered to vote will be denied their right to vote by INEC.
    “That is nearly half of the support base of the President, simply nullified by administrative (failure) prior to the election. By comparison, the zones that tend to support Buhari are handed a massive voter advantage, nearly 80% of his support base will be allowed to cast their votes by INEC.

    In an election, which many say will be won or lost by a slim margin, to now disenfranchise 26million voters through a questionable and unlawful rule by INEC is not acceptable by any measure.

    ” CAA condemns in its entirety. This attempt by INEC to undermine our nescient democracy through this criminal enterprise to determine the outcome of this electioneer before the ballot is cast.

    While speaking on the controversy raging over the coming election, Balarabe Musa said there is no way INEC can be able to distribute the outstanding PVCs within the remaining two weeks.

    “INEC cannot meet up with the issuance voters card to all registered voters, even the PVCs is not being realistic because of the past failures in the past. For example, INEC is talking about distributing permanent voters cards. Let us assume that sufficient PVCs have been produced the commission, how is the PVC is still being distributed.

    ” We have credible information that in some places in the rural areas, INEC staff take the PVCs for distribution and because of the disappointments of the past refuse to come out for collection of PVC. The commission staff then leave the PVCs to community leaders to distribute. I believe that should not be the responsibility of the village heads to do that but INEC.

    “Again, how can we realistically expect INEC to make PVCs available to every registered voter within two weeks, something they failed to do in many years.”

    This is the reason why some of us have been asking for Nigeria to go confederate, at the minimum. Whether the elections hold on February 14 or not is immaterial. Whether Jonathan wins a third term (by default) is immaterial. The fact is Nigeria is unworkable. Many believe that by sweeping the rot under the rug, the issues will be forgotten. No. It can never be. When the Germans were defeated in the Second World War, the World rose up and dealt with the Nazis. In Nigeria, those who committed open crimes are celebrated. Abacha & Babangida, two individuals who (Like Hitler, Goebbels and Goehring) their memories and those of their associates should be wiped off, continue to strut the landscape. Their associates are today top government officials. My fellow commentators, Nigeria will know no peace until justice is done. Justice is recognizing we are different and allowing the various ethnic groups self-determination.

How dare these old idiots claim to speak for the whole Southern People? Elections must happen as planned and we will not heed the call to boycott. These idiots are not representing me under any capacity. The Nigerian people have Totally rejected Jonathan for good. The elections will hold on Deb 14th and Jonsthan will loose massively and the people will rejoice. As fir Ckark and co, they can go drink Ogogoro and take a swim in the River Niger.

  • Dr. Williams

    Editor Premium Times,

    Nigerians can be supercilious. Just imagine someone sitting in his chair
    and dictating that it’s okay to deprive 20 million people of a right to vote.
    Imagine that arrogance! Who has the right to dis-enfranchise anyone?

    Not to talk of 20 million citizens. The question these badly educated fellows
    can’t or don’t ponder is: “What is in Professor Jega’s pedigree to suggest
    he can deliver 20 million plus machine-readable voter cards in just one week,
    after he’s already disproved it by not being able to do so in three years?”

    • My learned Dr., hear the word of the wise. Do you wait at home for your Driver’s license to be brought to you or you go collect it? Do you wait at home for your PVC to be brought to you or you go collect it? Hurry up it will be too late next weekend.

    THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE LONG AGO

    I had expected that Prof Jega should have been kicked out at the time he registered APC despite matters pending in Court.

    At that time I alerted that Jega is a card carrying member of APC based on information, documentary evidence and facts I had been privileged to receive from a very reliable and dependable source operating right inside Jega’s world.

    To make matters worse nobody called for Jega’s removal when he went ahead to ensure the complete Northernisation and domination of INEC by the Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani

    Overall, Jega cannot stop PDP from winning the 2015 Presidentail election …… at best Jega may have succeeded in reducing the margin of victory by PDP.

    Notwithstanding, Jega must go now and nothing less will do.

      Sometimes when I read comments of some people I just laugh. The questions one should ask himself is that why is it that everything is about Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani. is it a crime for any muslim or some body from north to occupy any position in this country without being labelled Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani. Must our comments should always be based on ethnicity and religious lines. should Jega be removed and a Southern Christian be put there in order to satisfy you. Must we view/see this based on performance, capacity, experience or sentiments. Don’t you think that some Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani will still vote for GEJ and what do think they will say about your comment when they see it. All these comments cannot help GEJ to win this election reason being that as of today, north is more than south in terms of population. and so far we are still one Nation they have the edge except you want to divide this country during this election which I believe GEJ WILL NOT DARE DO THAT even though some of his Kinsmen have been doing verbally including you. I implore you to go through your own comment and see how divisive you are all in the name of this coming election. PLEASE I DONT HAVE ANY OTHER PLACE TO GO THAN THIS COUNTRY IF YOU ARE NURSING BIAFRA NATION

    PDP WILL SURELY WIN THE 2015 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS AS REPRESENTED BY VERIFIABLE FACTS ON GROUND.

    Propaganda does not win elections; votes win elections and the PDP have the votes …… reason they are not spending an arm and a leg on false propaganda as the APC (All Propaganda Congress) is doing.

    The All Propaganda Congress (APC0 knows that they are surely loosing the elections ….. reason they are investing heavily on false propaganda and media thinking that Nigerians will buy into their deceptions.

    Propaganda is more in the realm of psychologocal warfare which PDP is strong and prepared to defeat. PDP must not waiver in the face of the massive false propaganda machine of the APC better known as the ALL PROPAGANDA CONGRESS.

    The facts reveal that PDP will surely win the 2015 elections but their victory may not be with as much a wide margin as in the previous elections.

    PVCs are available for collection everywhere. You can’t force ppl to go and collect if they don’t want to. And of course the statement that 100% distribution has been achieved in the north is a complete lie. Only 70% have been claimed in the north west and the north east, while around 65% have been claimed in the south-south and the south east.
    Northerners trooped out to collect their PVCs because they are more frustrated with the current government than all other parts of the country. If there are explosions and suicide bombings everyday in the south and the gov is not doing anything about it, I am sure the ppl will go and collect their PVCs. Also, unfortunately for Jonathan, most northerners believe he is complicit in the whole BH saga, therefore, they are determined to vote him out.

    • The Nationalst

      Na you talk true pass.

    • You are very objective on the reason the affected North collected more PVCs than the unaffected South. It is not too late, they can catch up before February 14, 2015.

    So how many laptops has Mr Clark bought for INEC in Delta state to facilitate distribution of cards? Jobless, idle elders. Majority have collected cards, huge numbers of cards are awaiting collection and people are not going. Many cannot even sacrifice single day for Nigeria so is that Jega’s fault?

A situation where my Northern neighbor and his family registered with me at the same center, he is a Director of Protocol in a Federal Ministry, he collected his and his family and mine and my family and other neighbors can not be seen till now. l made so many efforts, saw all our names and photos but no PVC, how about that? l have filled their form and left my numbers till now, NO CALL!!!!. We still have our temporary PVC till now and kept on calling INEC bloke in their office that gave us the form to fill.

    Before we comment one way or the other on this matter, the question that arises herefrom should be: is this story true? Having read the load of accusations and allegations in this story, there must be a serious investigation on the story. All these hurries to stage an election might backfire even on supporters of APC because if Lagos, for example, is shortchanged in the distribution of the PVCs where would the vote for Buhari come from? Are they going to vote with their teeth? Let’s adopt a sense of maturity here otherwise we could be shooting ourselves in the foot.

    • DecodeDaRiddle

      I will respond to you today because you have taken a neutral and reasonable approach to the topic. However, there is a need for you to realize the following:
      1- The group already has a clear candidate they support which makes them partisan
      2- The members of the group were all present at the just concluded National Conference
      3- The fact that Lagos, Ogun, Edo, Osun, Oyo, Rivers all form a huge chunk of APC’s stronghold, the argument of the group is baseless.
      4- The fact that they launched this press conference while the council of state was ongoing is indicative, they had a script before and got advanced alert that it was not in their favor. Ask yourself, if the council had said elections be postponed, will this press conference be valid?
      5- The INEC chairman defended his earlier statements that the institution is ready for elections.
      6- The north always sensitize better than the south anyday. It is why GMB will hit a town and without English or flyers, the place is packed.
      7- Fashola the governor of Lagos is yet to get his PVC, so why would INEC deliberately bypass a sitting governor who has a key stake. Fashola has rather staed that he will be the last man to collect after everyone must have picked their cards in Lagos.
      8- Greed and avarice are the trademark of the group.
      9- If leaders in their old age, state that they will lead people to protest, they dont mean well for the country.
      10 Where were these guys when Aba Moro unwittingly killed job seekers, where were they when Dizeani was junketing around the world with a bill of 10B Naira, where were they when Stella was indicted for purchase of cars that were not approved? They were silent because they didnt want to rock the boat of their benefactor, now, if they rock the boat of the elections, they will see the wrath of the youth of this country that have decided enough is enough of the enemies of the state.

        its like u need some APC to help stabilize your brain—is Balarabe Musa is also member of PDP or an Ijaw man from the Niger delta—? If u can use yr janjaweed head to insult Clark and the rest of the team—who are more patriotic in thought than Buhari who assisted a candidate from Niger Republic to defeat an Ibo man at the OAU—all we ask for is for Buhari to tell us how he joined the army period–with which qualification–?

        • DecodeDaRiddle

          This forum is for learning. The seeds of discord you try to sow willnot work.
          I never said anyone is from the ND because clearly you have SW,SE and SS represented. The fact that Musa is there does it take away the fact that he is partisan? Until you can disprove all i have enumerated here…dont fly off on any tanget of AU or Certificate. deal with the issue at hand and “Educate the forum” if you can devoid of abuses or name calling.

      • Abu Bilaal Abdulrazaq bn Bello

        You have spoken well.

      • tsunami1earthquake

        My dear, thank you for identifying me as neutral. To be candid I have chosen to be neutral in these ongoing events(that is the elections) because of the hackneyed saying, ‘once beaten, twice shy’. You must have been a witness to the events that happened up to the 2011 elections when majority of Nigerians stood solidly behind Jonathan who furthermore spurred our ‘sympathy’ and enthusiasm by telling us of his humble beginnings in life and the hardships he had endured as a child; many Nigerians identified with him. Even the ACN at the time put its own interest aside and voted him instead of Nuhu Ribadu. And all the results we got from Jonathan are partly adumbrated in your listing above.

        Since then I’ve lost interest in the Nigerian-style democracy with the accompanying electoral events. As of now I only say, ‘may the “best” party win’. And, subsequently, we watch the new occupant of Aso Rock six months later to see how the nation is going. Maybe a ‘miracle’ might happen this time around to send Nigeria a leader who would clear the Augean Stable of filth we have in this country. I watch and see. Since the election is only a constitutional requirement that happens at stipulated periods in the nation’s history, I have no objection to it. Mine is just to comment objectively on how the contestants perform on the campaigns. Unsurprisingly this had sometimes earned me names from party supporters on both sides of the political divide and I rationalize such reactions, most of the time, as typical Nigerian mentality where we use insults as the oil with which we lubricate our speeches. If you doubt this inbuilt culture of insults pop in just two DVDs of Nollywood products on your player and you’d begin to realize what I’m talking about.

        So your points above are well taken; they all contain elements of incontrovertible facts. Meanwhile I sit back and watch how things develop.

        • DecodeDaRiddle

          Fair enough. Some of us are nationalists and believe in the power of this country that has suffered from ineptitude to conspiracy, from sympathy to mind blowing corruption, from a nation that the US congress stood to applaud Sir Balewa to where militants dictate our oneness.
          I am in no doubt that the current trend of suspicion, name calling and avarice is ingrained in alot of us. We need to have a nation before we are citizens. A nation where we see Chinese, Indians Europeans come, prosper and even Americans refuse to leave, on the contrary, our citizens are in dire poverty. A pity, we are busy with infighting rather than development. We need a president that will proffer a solution for the 36 states and not ethnic persuasions. Electricity, economy, jobs, security, education….are some of the things we need not appeasing every section with Almajiri schools to amnesty stipends.
          The capacity is what we should elevate in or consciousness and until then, Nigeria will be a grown baby in diapers and that who refuses to crawl talkless of walk or even run.

      There are two main contenders for the Presidency in this election. The analyzed data above depicts a worrying trend. Voters in the zones that tend to support President Goodluck Jonathan are massively disenfranchised by the application of the so-called PVCs debacle, 40% to 50% of voters in the these regions who are lawfully and duly registered to vote will be denied their right to vote by INEC.
      “That is nearly half of the support base of the President, simply nullified by administrative (failure) prior to the election. By comparison, the zones that tend to support Buhari are handed a massive voter advantage, nearly 80% of his support base will be allowed to cast their votes by INEC.

      Those with “calcified memory” who are turning History on its head by revising it and painting a villain like Buhari in glowing terms are destroying the future of Nigeria and its peoples. They are essentially saying that it does not matter how crooked and criminally tendentious you are in your trajectory you could still be rewarded with leadership position. It means an Ibrahim Babangida, if young and healthy enough, able to buy the press and engineer an effective propaganda to spread falsehood, could come back and rule Nigeria tomorrow. It means that a Sanni Abacha, if he was alive and well, and able to do the same, could come back and rule Nigeria. It means that all the things we teach our children – the difference between evil and good – mean nothing. It then portends that very soon, we will be grabbing armed robbers and assassins from the streets to rule over us!

      “To deprive a people of volition in their own political direction is to turn a nation into a colony of slaves. Buhari enslaved the nation. He gloated and gloried in a master-slave relation to the millions of its inhabitants. It is astonishing to find that the same former slaves, now free of their chains, should clamour to be ruled by one who not only turned their nation into a slave plantation, but forbade them any discussion of their condition.” what a shame

    A political interest organization, Credible Alternative Alliance (CAA) led by former Kaduna state Governor, Alhaji Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa has alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is tilting the distribution of Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to favour areas believed to be strongholds of All Progressives Congress’ candidate, General Muhammed Buhari.

    The group presented a statistical analysis of the distribution of PVCs which showed the number of registered voters yet to collect their PVCs in various zones.

    According to CAA, South-East has (3,287, 530) , South West (7,411,205), South-South (3,844,370) , North-East (2,429,763), North West (4,835,556), North Central (3,907,849) and FCT(421,559).

    On the distribution of PVCs, CAA said it has observed “a criminal gross disparity of voter spread designed to tilt the election to a pre-determined outcome.

    The group insists that all the 68.8 million registered voters must be given unfettered access to freely collect their PVCs and cast their vote as provided for in the constitution, adding that it would be forced to take INEC to court if that condition was not met.

    “Let us call a spade, a spade. There are two main contenders for the Presidency in this election. The analyzed data above depicts a worrying trend. Voters in the zones that tend to support President Goodluck Jonathan are massively disenfranchised by the application of the so-called PVCs debacle, 40% to 50% of voters in the these regions who are lawfully and duly registered to vote will be denied their right to vote by INEC.

    In an election, which many say will be won or lost by a slim margin, to now disenfranchise 26million voters through a questionable and unlawful rule by INEC is not acceptable by any measure.

    ” CAA condemns in its entirety. This attempt by INEC to undermine our nescient democracy through this criminal enterprise to determine the outcome of this electioneer before the ballot is cast.

    While speaking on the controversy raging over the coming election, Balarabe Musa said there is no way INEC can be able to distribute the outstanding PVCs within the remaining two weeks.

    “INEC cannot meet up with the issuance voters card to all registered voters, even the PVCs is not being realistic because of the past failures in the past. For example, INEC is talking about distributing permanent voters cards. Let us assume that sufficient PVCs have been produced the commission, how is the PVC is still being distributed.

    ” We have credible information that in some places in the rural areas, INEC staff take the PVCs for distribution and because of the disappointments of the past refuse to come out for collection of PVC. The commission staff then leave the PVCs to community leaders to distribute. I believe that should not be the responsibility of the village heads to do that but INEC.

    “Again, how can we realistically expect INEC to make PVCs available to every registered voter within two weeks, something they failed to do in many years

  • August January

    The problem with the PVC is similar to that of registration. What do I mean? It’s the problem of Nigerians, not INEC. When people refuse to create time and queue to collect his/her PVC, would INEC take it to him/her in his/her home or office, or farm or shop? For example, at the time of registration, most people of voting age in Ekiti State didn’t go out to register and thus the state produced a very low registered voters. Was that the fault of INEC? Please, people should stop blaming INEC.

    My questions are how did APC knows about the whereabouts of my PVC——-WHAT ABOUT THIS PERSON—-? U THINK U CAN LIES YOUR WAY THROUGH NIGERIANS THE SAME WAY U TRIED TO BURY THE BUHARI CERTIFICATE SCANDAL ABI

    A REAL man, the kind of man a Nigerians wants to give her life to, is one who will respect her dignity, who will honor her like the valuable treasure she is. A REAL man will not attempt to rip her precious pearl from its protective shell,
    or persuade her with charm to give away her treasure prematurely, but he will wait patiently until she willingly gives him the prize of her heart. A REAL man will cherish and care for that prize forever. Not election must hold at all cost man. A real man delivers his messages without treat or cohesion. Don’t go looking for trouble APC.

    These are cash and carry old men who do not have any political or electoral value. They are afraid of the money they have been stealing under incompetent GEJ who is susceptible to their selfish schemings. With GMB they will lose their stolen resources, so they are doing all dirty things to distract. They have failed and very soon the game will be up for them. See the old man Okonrumu who was used by GEJ for the selfish national conference running from pillar to post to keep the billions he collected in bribe. Is he not the one who advocated that NIgerians should vote for someone who will implement his report or that election should not be held till conference report is implemented. What a jaundiced thinking. No one is listening to these selfish old men as all Southern Nigerians are very ready to cast their vote for a person of their choice, and GMB will be elected in landslide. Right thinking people of the south will surely vote for GMB who has been chosen to tackle the menace of unbriddled corruption by wicked GEJ and PDP. God bless Nigeria.

    BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS!! BREAKING NEWS!!!

    Nigerian Masses and Nigerians in diaspora who voted against ex-military
    president, BUHARI, in 2003, 2007 and 2011 presidential elections have already
    adduced the following reasons behind their votes against BUHARI. They have
    insisted that nothing has changed in the life of Ex-Military Dictator( Buhari)
    and as such have resolutely decided to go into election on Feb., 14
    Presidential Election to demonstrate their views and to send Buhari to a
    perceptual political retirement.

    They spoken in harsh tones to our correspondent denouncing Buhari in all
    ramifications . According to them, “below are the reasons we voted against
    Buhari in the past elections and why we are prepared to VOTE against him
    again this Feb., 14 Nigerian Presidential elections”. Reasons:

    No1.

    NIGERIAN STUDENTS. Remember the person who abolished feeding in

    tertiary institutions in 1984?. Buhari as a military Dictator then had

    no agenda for Nigerian Students, neither does he and his rag tag

    coalition this time.

    Vote to protect our Students.

    SAY NO TO BUHARI, SAY NO TO APC

    Nigeria First Project

    No2

    NIGERIAN WOMEN. How many Women were in Buhari’s Cabinet as Military

    Head of State? NONE. Buhari has no respect for the dignity of women and

    regards them as insignificant in national development. That is why he

    recklessly said recently that he will abolish the office of the First

    Lady if he is elected. Women, who today are at the commanding heights of

    Nigeria’s political economy will have no rallying point in a Buhari

    Government.

    Vote to protect our Women.

    No3

    THE NIGERIAN PRESS. Do we want to risk the freedom of Expression we

    currently enjoy?. Hear Gen Buhari’s vow in 1984 when asked about press

    freedom ” I will tamper with that”. To match words with Action (after

    all, Buhari claims to be a man of his words) he enacted Decree 20 and

    jailed Journalists Nduka Irabor and Tunde Thompson. Many Nigerians were

    detained without trial under his draconian Decree No 2. Can we afford

    to go back to the dark ages?

    No. 4

    The NIGERIAN POLITICAL CLASS. If you think that the current attempt to

    whitewash General Buhari and give him a human face will make him abandon

    his old habits, we will be in for a rude shock. To him, every

    politician is a thief except himself. This kind of messianic delusion

    has no place in contemporary Nigeria. Buhari looks at everyone with

    contempt and prejudice. His iron fisted misrule lead to the premature

    deaths of political leaders across the country. Let us save our emerging

    leaders and protect them from a rampaging despot.

    CIVIL SOCIETY. Buhari’s Government enacted laws with retroactive

    effects. Nigerians were given punishments that were nonexistent in

    previous laws at the time the offences were committed! How else can we

    define gross violation of human rights? Buhari enacted and recklessly

    applied Decree 2 otherwise known as Detention of Persons without trial

    Decree.

    He never condones dialogue.

    CATTLE REARERS. To some Nigerians, General Buhari is a proud Fulani man

    who will protect them when he gets to power! How wrong! Under General

    Buhari, the obnoxious Jangali Tax system was introduced and this brought

    untold hardships to Fulani Cattle Rearers and frustrated most of them

    out of business. A good friend they say is better than a wicked brother.

    The current effort to create grazing reserves for cattle Rearers must

    be supported. Buhari will bring back Jangali.

    INVESTORS/ BUSINESS COMMUNITY. General Buhari does not believe in the

    principle of a private sector driven economy. He is still ensconced in

    the worn out and obsolete practices of a state monopoly control of the

    economy. All the gains of the current reforms which have made Nigeria

    the biggest investment destination in Africa will be reversed.

    undermined the revered and world famous Stools of the Emirate of Kano

    and the Ooni of Ife when he unilaterally suspended the Great Alhaji Ado

    Bayero and Oba Okunade Sijuwade from office for embarking on private

    violated no laws. Let’s us preserve the dignity of our heritage.

    THE LEGISLATURE AND THE JUDICIARY. General Buhari does not believe in

    the concept of Separation of Powers. Being from a dictatorial

    background, he lacks the temperament to engage in dialogue and tolerate

    opposing views. That is how he influenced the dispensation of justice in

    his regime. From his pronouncements and carriage, he has learnt nothing

    and will attempt to weaken the other arms of government. SAY NO TO

    No. 10

    THE

    NIGERIAN PEOPLE. General Buhari seems disconnected with the norms of

    politics in his actions and his words. His immensely divisive persona is

    manifest in his recent pronouncements. In an interview he granted to

    weekly Trust recently, he referred to Former Presidents Olusegun

    Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida as his “Enemies”. Nigerians deserve a

    Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it. No past leader in Nigeria did half of what GEJ has done for this country. Ignorance is the night of the mind, but a night without moon and star. To be able under all circumstances to practice five things constitutes perfect virtue; these five things are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness and kindness, GEJ is a leader guided by this. I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

    GEJ as the superior man, when resting in safety, does not forget that danger may come. When in a state of security he does not forget the possibility of ruin. When all is orderly, he does not forget that disorder may come.
    Thus his person is not endangered, and his States and all their clans are preserved.

    APC, when anger rises, think of the consequences. Nigerians, when we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and tell them that any man that uses his teeth to cut shaki from pepper-soup with his eyes wide open is not afraid of anything, PDP is that man. He who says nothing last forever has never tried Hausa perfume. If APC wants war so be it.

    • Lemmuel Odjay

      Stop threatening us, my brother. It won’t work. Face the ISSUES instead. In 2011, when we queued under the sun to vote for brother Goodluck Jonathan, why did his opponents not wage war on us? And now that we who voted for him then are determined to vote against him, why must Jonathan and your PDP declare war on us? Is that position his inheritance? Is there anything in the books which stipulates that your PDP must win this and every other election? Some people do not understand the rudiments of governance under a democracy, and are too wired to care about how it is done in developed societies from whom we borrowed the system. This is a simple contract between a group of people. They come together, form alliances and proceed to vote for those who they believe could serve them better and on the understanding that certain laid down guidelines must be followed in pursuit of the general good of all during a fixed period of time. At the end of term, the people come together to take stock. Have the people (NOT JUST THOSE IN THE RULING PARTY ONLY), fared better during the period in question? If the answer is mostly in the negative (the verdict is always there in the street for all to see), the same people would then proceed to vote out that set of unproductive servants in preference to another. It is as simple as ABC. So why are we receiving threats from the PDP and its followers for expressing an opinion about whom to vote for? Abroad, it is a sign that an incumbent and their party has failed to fulfil the contract agreement. There is nothing shameful about it, and it is not a do or die affair when you know there is always another opportunity. What they do under such circumstances is accept the people’s verdict, step down and go into hibernation where they then reinvent themselves and prepare for another try. God willing, I hope to see a New PDP in, say, 8 years from now; a New PDP that would be selfless, better focused, whose cardinal policy would be zero tolerance to corruption and ineptitude. Turning it into a make or mar affair is undemocratic and could only injure our future and those of our children. Go back and do a self appraisal. Listen to what reasons those who voted for you in 2011 are giving for not wanting to vote in your favour this time around. Do your home work and then return humbled and more prepared to SERVE and not to be served, which is your mental attitude at present. The country belongs to us all and it is our duty to ensure that we remain united and live in peace at all times, not only when PDP is in government. Only “bush” people would like to win at all costs or destroy everything if they cannot win. It is not about education, as some educated Nigerians display attitude worse than “bush” people when it comes to issues of politics. There is always another day for the better prepared mind. Goodbye my brother…

      • onenigerian2014

        Twerp, you and yours are the ones threatening Nigerians by trying to foster a criminal on us. Let me tell you a true story cause l fell you are a boy!! There was this story in the University of an Indian Surgeon who was recruited by the Kwara State government then to work in the state hospital. This surgeon was so good in performing surgery that virtually all the surgeries he had performed were successful. Unfortunately as fate would have it, the government of the then governor Alhaji Adamu Attah decided to take a nominal roll of all the Kwara State government employees and their qualifications to flush out ghost workers and those with fake certificate. It was then discovered that the super surgeon Indian doctor did not go to any medical school in India. He was actually a theatre attendant for 25 years in a teaching hospital in India. There was the craze by Northern Nigerian states to recruit Indian doctors, teachers and sundry in the late 1970s and 1980s, the super surgeon capitalized on that and was recruited as a “doctor/surgeon” by Kwara State government.

        His numerous patients on whom he performed successful surgery appealed to the government to allow him continue on the job. Unfortunately the law had to take its course. The super surgeon was dismissed and repatriated back to India

        The same pattern played out in Buhari’s admittance into the Nigerian military as we can now see. We do not doubt the fact that Major General Muhammadu Buhari rose through the rank and became a Major General in the Nigeria Army. He had held prominent positions of authority including being Military Head of State. General Buhari had contested the presidential elections three times in the past ostensibly unsuccessful under different rules. The 2010 Electoral Act as amended seems to have upped the cut off marks for the 2015 presidential election beyond the General’s previous qualifications that he used in 2003, 2007 and even 2011. The
        law seems a bad law for him and his APC. But you see, the law is the law and most be applied,

        It is really a great thing of interest to Nigerians and the international
        community to witness General Buhari who is campaigning on the mantra of fighting corruption to start on false footing of forging his certificates and qualifications. In his affidavit submitted to INEC, General said his documents were with the Military Secretary Board. While the Nigerian Military has since came out to say they are never in position of General Buhari’s certificates.

        In his second defense in his well publicized press conference, General Buhari had this to say: – “I have always assumed that my credentials were with the military but now we are being told that they do not have my documents in their custody.” Haba our General, thirty years after you left the service of the Nigerian Army, you still left your certificates with the Army? Even the original certificates at that? What documents did you use to apply for the PTF job then? The “General” then said that his former secondary school will release his certificate on his behalf. True to type, Ministry of Education Katsina State through one government college Katsina released a statement of result for one “Mohamed Buhari” ostensibly on behalf of General Mohammadu Buhari as his certificate. Surely the name Mohamed can never be the same with Mohammadu.
        Something is wrong somewhere and must be corrected.

        Finally in his third defense, General Buhari said his certificates are with INEC. From the above scenario, Buhari’s certificate scandal is becoming messier by the day. Now tell me who is threating Nigerians? You see how Tinubu respected himself and kept out quietly our of the raze because of his Toronto certificate. But, Mr. Born to Rule, will there Nigerians okayoo.

        That the vote should be delayed have been percolating. It doesn’t
        cost us anything will it?, is still within the law and it is safer for all of us so why the desperations? Guess what ‘MY BROADA’ APC does not want the law to catch-up with Buhari before the election that’s why!!!

        • Peter

          Which one here do you feel is better and safer for the embattled General Buhari: to forget the presidential ambition and drop out of sight or risk some years behind in jail for certificate forgery, impersonation and perjury. If I were in his shoes, I will drop the ambition and dock out of sight.

      • Gaskiya

        Thank you very much our brother. You have said an unbiased facts about what is going on in heads of PDP men and women. I wish they can read these points you raised with an element of neutrality and then ponder for a while before re-reading it as PDP members. If they do this they will definitely reason and know that it was Nigerians from both North and South that voted for Jonathan in 2011. As you rightly mentioned above, they should keep themselves busy dissecting what they told and convinced Nigerians to have voted for PDP and Jonathan previously.
        PDP have not realised that the more they treat Nigerians with disregard the more they loose support. This is largely because the world and Nigeria has turned into a small village where information sharing has become very sophisticated and fast. PDP and Jonathan men are completely unaware that each time they voiced out anything wrong, it spread to all nook and cranny of Nigeria like a virus reaching the great majority of Nigerians within a short time. This is was has led to down fall of PDP.

      • Peter

        You must be one of those Hausa/Fulani slaves. People like you don’t understand easily. This may be due to your age or that you are being used to talk the type of nonsense. When the leaders from your zone are talking, please don’t contradict their vision and wisdom. The Hausa man is not wiser than your people, except that they know they can capitalise on simpletons like you. Gullibility is the end product of loose and incoherent thinking, and unfortunately it fits those of you that think from the anus. The Fulanis ruined Nigeria for close to 40 years, using the military. These so called northern leaders did see not anything wrong with that because it was benefitting them. They started shouting the ‘cluelessness’ in President Goodluck Jonathan even before he was sworn to complete the remaining tenure of late President Yar’Ardua. You can see that the northerners rejected Jonathan even before he was sworn in. That is hatefulness and since we all believe that that there is no place for haters in the Kingdom of God, the haters of President Jonathan will be doomed, in Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

  • Chief Edwin Clarke said last year that he is now living to right the evils he had done to Nigeria. I pray he does not forget to live every moment with that purpose, since he, at 88, does not know when the door will close.

  • Gaskiya

    These guys, Clark, Okurounmu, Ezeife and others are making noise with
    any substance. You should be busy campaigning for Jonathan now. You can
    now understand that it was not your votes that made Jonathan president,
    rather the collective votes of all Nigerians. After 2011 victory you and
    Jonathan became so much obsessed with looting National treasury and
    neglecting Nigerians. Unfortunately for him and his hooligans, Nigerians are fast maturing
    and can no longer accept or vote leaders like Jonathan to lead
    them. The story is as simple as that. Any Nigerian leader who wants to
    lead us must be a good person in every aspect of his life.
    You are talking about Jonathan that has been despised even by all the civilised and developed
    world. Jonathan as a person is PERSONA-NON-GRATA to many countries
    because of his role in the most highly corrupt practices of the 21st
    century.

    If these fools are clamouring for Jega to be sacked, then they must first execute Jonathan for his series of failures for the past 6 years! It is funny how these fools think.
