Nigerian Military Chiefs pledged support for elections days before prompting shift — APC

John Oyegun

Nigerian military chiefs gave a clear commitment to provide security for elections earlier billed for February 14 and 28, just three days before issuing a warning to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to shift the polls or risk losing security cover, the chairman of the main opposition party, All Progressives Congress, APC, said Monday.

The APC accused the military of insincerity and bias in its decision to instigate INEC to postpone the elections on claim of insecurity.

The APC National Chairman, John Oyegun, who addressed a press conference at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, said the top leadership of Nigeria’s armed forces had assured political parties of their readiness to provide security for the general elections on their original dates.

The military hierarchy made the pledge at a meeting with the political parties just three days before writing to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to warn that they cannot guarantee security if polls go ahead as planned, Mr. Oyegun said.

“At the occasion, the Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh, an Air Chief Marshal, gave assurances of the Armed Forces’ preparedness for the elections. According to him “even though we are busy in the North East, we also have capabilities across the nation.”

Mr. Oyegun said Mr. Badeh also admitted that the role of the military is merely to support the police in providing security during elections.

Mr. Oyegun quoted the Chief of Army Staff, Kenneth Minimah, a Major General, as saying “we are aware of the need for security, before, during and after the elections. We will deploy across the states of the federation in areas we discover that have capacity for violence. We are prepared to ensure we have peaceful elections.”

The APC leader also quoted the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Adesola Amosun as saying “we have commenced the air lift of the materials needed for the elections, starting from Abuja. We will continue with the elections.”

While announcing the shift of the elections last Saturday, INEC chairman, Attahiru Jega, said the commission was forced to reschedule the election after receiving correspondence from the office of the National Security Adviser and the same military chiefs that they cannot guarantee security at the original dates.

Mr. Oyegun asked why security information changed 72 hours after the Service Chiefs announced readiness to provide security for the elections on February 2.

“However, only 3 days later on Friday February 6, these same Service Chiefs wrote to INEC, in a letter, which by all practical purposes could be described as blackmail, saying that they would no longer be able to provide security for the elections? What happened in those 72 hours that brought about this complete volte-face?” he asked.

Military in alliance with PDP

Mr. Oyegun recalled that at the National Council of States meeting last Thursday, INEC reaffirmed its readiness and commitment to hold the elections as scheduled.

He added that although the Service Chiefs briefed the Council that they had security concerns, the consensus of opinion at the meeting was that elections should go ahead nationwide except in the 14 local government areas identified as problematic by the security chiefs.

“After all, it was recalled that in 1999, elections were not held in Bayelsa State because of the activities of militants at the time, but it held all over the country.

“The activities of Boko Haram were clearly limited to 14 Local Governments in three States out of 774 Local Governments in 36 States and FCT. How would this then warrant the blanket postponement of elections in the entire country?

“Considering all factors building up to this postponement, it is difficult not to come to the obvious conclusion that the Military High Command is in an unholy and dangerous alliance with the ruling party, the PDP, to subvert the democratic will of the people.

“We have no doubts that the letter sent to the INEC, warning it not to proceed with the elections, emanated from the Service Chiefs’ hands of Esau and President Jonathan’s voice of Jacob,” Mr. Oyegun said.

He also wondered why only the PDP and its supporters are celebrating the postponement.

Mr. Oyegun said at the Council of State meeting, all the former Heads of State in attendance spoke against the postponement except in the 14 LGAs and all the former Chief Justices’ also concurred.

He added that every non-PDP Governor present in the meeting spoke against postponement.

The APC Chairman said the greatest threat to Nigeria’s democracy at present is the way the ruling party has compromised the leadership of the Nigerian military to serve the personal agenda of Mr. Jonathan.

“This is a dangerous game,” he said.

He also recalled a recent court judgment in Sokoto, which ruled that the military had no role in the electoral process.

“What happened with this postponement is that Service Chiefs simply vetoed a democratic process on the directive of President Jonathan. We know what politicization is doing to our once proud military institution.

“We are aware that the Presidency has forwarded a secret memo to all commanders of divisions and battalions of Nigerian Army for a 3-day strategy meeting in Kaduna from today on how to use the military to intimidate voters in APC States to rig election in favour of President Jonathan,” he said.

Mr. Oyegun also said recent revelations about the role of the military in Ekiti elections is demonstrable proof of how far the President Goodluck Jonathan’s government will go to compromise the military as an institution.

Postponement, a booby trap

The National Chairman of the APC said the Service Chiefs’ letter to INEC demanding a postponement for “at least” six weeks is a “booby trap”. He said embedded in that phrase “at least” is a window to push for another postponement.

“It is clear however, that any further postponement can only lead to a constitutional crisis. The constitution demands at least 30 days before the handover date of May 29th.

“We have strong suspicions but hope this postponement is not part of an agenda to create a constitutional crisis in the country. We are just recently recovering from the crisis precipitated by the political crisis of 1993. We cannot afford another,” he said.

Mr. Oyegun said that beyond the postponement and intimidation of INEC, the government is planning other schemes.
“We are aware of plans for worse intimidation in the days ahead. We are aware of plans to intimidate and orchestrate arrest of our leaders across the country on frivolous grounds.

“We are now aware of how PDP used intimidation and arrest to rig the last Governorship election in Ekiti State. We are aware that this is the plan of the PDP.

“But we have no doubt that Nigerians will stand up to this. We have no doubt that the international community is watching,” he said.

    Totally baseless and unfounded allegation. Do not politicize the military so as to allow them remain focused on the task before them.
    How will the army benefit from this alleged collusion? I don’t see it at all. Stop peddling useless rumours designed to incite uprising.
    Should that happen then I assure you that you will definitely be the first victim.

      Moron. Another brain washed ignoramus. Everything is unfounded until it becomes open to everyone. It was unfounded when APC said this incompetent govt was trying to postpone the election. Everything is unfounded allegation yet they are all proven to be facts at the end of the day.

      A one-time Maj. Sambo Dasuki was the junior army officer coup plotter IBB, sent to arrest a one-time Head of State, Gen. Buhari. Dasuki later became ADC to IBB and is currently married to the daughter of another member of their criminal gang, Gen. Aliyu Gusau (ret) who happens to be the current Defense Minister. Needless to ask you to connect the dots. Goes like this… A Buhari presidency will trample on a lot of leprous toes, find our missing billoja at the NNPC, unravel the roles of Ali Modu Sheriff ati Gen.

    Jega is the saboteur here. There is no proof that Badeh or Minimah wrote him any letter. Sambo Dasuki that wrote that letter has no authority to do so and should have been disregarded by Jega. It is a clever legally sound move by Badeh and the service chiefs. Dasuki and Jega will be jailed for a long time, if the case is pursued.

    Attitude to Terrorists elsewhere
    ====================
    In France the terrorists who attacked Carlie Hebdo were hunted down and taken out.
    In Belgium, the police only learnt of a plan. They went straight into action and shot all dead.
    In America, almost ALL terrorists who aided 9/11 in one way or the other have been shot dead. The few remaining are being hunted day & night with only one mission – to kill them

    In Syria & Iraq, practically all Europe & America are fighting and killing the terrorists, with airplanes, drones etc
    In Jordan, few days ago shot dead terrorists who were awaiting trial, including a woman suicide bomber
    In Israel,… I need not tell you how they handle terrorists

    …But one common denominator in all countries above is: Whole citizenry (including the opposition) unite to fight the Islamic terrorists —-The Presidents from F. Hollande to N. Benjamin, are given moral support.

    How Terrorists are treated in Nigeria
    ========================
    1. A current Presidential aspirant says they should be treated fairly and granted amnesty like the Niger Deltan Revolutionary fighters fighting for resources control
    2. A serving Northern governor called the fight against Boko haram a genocide against the North
    3. Another Northern politician said it is a ploy to reduce Northern population
    4. Mostly Northern Soldiers refuse to fight but drop their weapons and flee at the sight of Boko haram leaving their weapons & tanks
    5. The citizenry is divided (The opposition refuses to support the incumbent govt, instead says it will stop terror which it, the opposition, comes to power )—– The President is to blame.

    Are we really a country?—aren’t we better off separated in peace than seemingly united in pieces? Does oil and/or gas money cause glaucoma? All Nigerians should rise up and engage in a mother of all protests so that we can RESTRUCTURE Nigeria or break up…So that elections will become issue based in those countries or new Republics—We can’t continue to listen to this kind of useless comments by an Oyegun who does not know his left from right.

      RUBBISH———–VERY SENSELESS—WAY OF THINKING–NO WONDER U SUPPORT BUHARI————–In France, those who went after the Jihadist had no tribal Marks-In France and Belguim did not not have a quota system general to say thus——–Muhammadu Buhari has asked the Federal Government to stop the clampdown of Boko Haram insurgents, saying Niger Delta Militants were never killed or properties belonging to them destroyed.

      Buhari who spoke on Sunday on a Liberty Radio programme, Guest of the Week monitored said accused the government of killing and destroying houses belonging to Boko Haram members while the Niger Delta militants get special treatment.

      The former dictator said that unlike the special treatment given to the Niger Delta militants by the federal government, the Boko Haram members were being killed and their houses demolished by government.

      While accusing President Jonathan of failing from the beginning to address the security situation in the country, Buhari said he has never been in support of the state of emergency in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa state.

      According to Buhari “what is responsible for the security situation in the country is caused by the activities of Niger Delta militants. Every Nigerian that is familiar with what is happening knows this. The Niger Delta militants started it all.

      “What happened is that the governors of the Niger Delta region at that time wanted to win their elections. So they recruited the youths and gave them guns and bullets and used them against their opponents to win elections by force.

      You’re a freaking baztard and a career liar.

Mordafcuker! How I wish I can just wrap my hands around your neck right now, punk.

      Your argument is seriously flawed

      Your first paragraph refers to a single incident. France had a track record of paying of terrorists to secure the release of its citizens.

      Your second paragraph is not factual – not even America can truly ascertain all those involved in 9/11

      If all Europe and America were truly engaged as you say the insurgencies would have been ended – given the amount of fur power Europe and America command

      Your fourth paragraph is inaccurate – hundreds of European citizens have gone to join IS and other terrorists groups and thousands more support them tacitly

    These current service chiefs have become part of Nigeria problems rather than solution, they have lost the professionalism which is the life wire of any army .
    How do you trust a head( Badeh) who said last year within 4 months BH will be defeated or become a thin of past.
    BH under him ,became emboldened and captured his house in Vintrin in Adamawa.
    He went before Council of State, formal head of states and retired Chief Justice and told them that,they were ready security wise for election, only to Sambo to make him swallow his words and did a political somersault What is happening here?
    Nigerians should ask in loud voice, if they are unable to finish BH by March 21 what is going to happen on 28th.
    Nigeria should use police , Army has no direct role in Election . Election is a civil process. Which needs a civil police.
    Soldiers are called upon in crisis spots
    Let have Barde commit himself that election on March 28 is sacrosanct, just like his Boss has committed himself to May 29th before the whole World. Peace be unto a united Nigeria.

    My Read:
    Based on the boisterous claim by one Ogbeni Adeyanju, an aide to Dr. Doyin Okupe, a Snr. Vuvuzela to Dr. Dumbo…
    After consulting my oracle and careful reflections, I suspect Dumbo is plotting a “civilian coup” to overthrow his own government. The gathering of goons in Kaduna is to fine-tune his handover to any of the corrupt Tombo Generals who also stand indicted on graft charges which is one of the reasons the US refused/blocks arms sells to Nigeria, they insist on investigation of our military hierarchy for swallowing billions of dollars meant to equip our bootlegs. That’s probably why Gen. Buhari tried to appease them by saying he will not investigate the military. Obviously, the Army is not buying his bait because an inevitable investigation of the Ministry of Defense under corrupt Koro, is tantamount to investigating the military. Conclusively, the sound bites emanating from Dumbo are nothing to run to the bank with, he says May 29th (not March 28th) is “sacrosanct” for handover. Believe that and you might as well believe that I am, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe!

    The Nigeria Police is the force unit traditionally burdened with supervision of elections. In fact, they were ready to supervise the cancelled February 14, 2015 elections as shown by this directive from IGP Suleiman Abba as of February
    3, 2015. So they must have been forced by some exterior element, could it be President Jonathan, to say they could not provide security for the cancelled elections because of Boko Haram. Read on.

    “Police To Provide Special Security For INEC And Officials During And After Election

    Published: 03 Feb, 2015

    *As IGP allays the fears of members of the public

    The Inspector General of Police, IGP Suleiman Abba CFR, NPOM, NPM, mni has directed Special Forces in the Police, which include officers and men of Special Protection Unit (SPU) and Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU) to provide special security for INEC materials and officials as well as its Ad-hoc staff during and after February, 2015 general elections.

    The IGP stated this while appraising the preparations for general elections during a briefing with senior officers in Abuja. This directive further demonstrates the readiness and the resolve of Nigeria Police Force to protect our nascent democracy and to ensure hitch free and credible general elections.

    It was equally restated by the Police High Command that some of the strategies put in place to ensure free and fair Polls in February 2015 by Nigeria Police Force are already being implemented. It also allays the fears of the members of the Public before, during and after the general elections as they are enjoined to fully collaborate with the Police and report any suspicious movement in their areas to the nearest Police station.

        Still he had achieved a lot better than ur entire zone! Speaking of zone, ur pidgy English contribute nothing to ur sad life! Not to talk about how deluded u are. Stealing is a natural thing for ur people! Alcohol is like a tap water to ur people. U feed on corruption! And u are too blinded to see that u are nothing less than a baby chimpanzee to us!

  • thusspokez

    Badeh (cough!) remember him telling a crowd that he knew where the Chibok girls are, but he could’t launch a rescue because he doesn’t want any of the girls to die in the rescue process. I wonder how many of them have died or been killed since those words. Also, his sit-down-and-wait for the boko haram attack strategy is not working and yet he wouldn’t change it.

    “At the occasion, the Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh, an Air Chief Marshal, gave assurances of the Armed Forces’ preparedness for the elections. According to him “even though we are busy in the North East, we also have capabilities across the nation.”

    Gosh, Is this Generala Nigerian? He speaks with so much sense and logic. What a contrast to Badeh. I thing GEJ should replace Badeh with this Minimah guy. He sound more capable that Badeh.

    Sources close to INEC, has thrown more light into why APC Kicked Against Election Postponement. – from Olusoji Zion Oseni, Lagos comes the Report that, INEC has not given the go-ahead for contractors to print ballot papers, although they have been designed- and placed on stand-by

    But some unscrupulous INEC officails leaked the samples to APC through Amaechi and Tinubu who are sponsoring Buhari’s campaign.

    The supposedly smart APC backers of Buhari went ahead to print its own fake ballot papers and costing them millions of UK Pounds sterling. In readiness for their February 14 date, Already they are alleged to have started the process of thumbprinting the cloned Ballot papers.

    So good people Nigerian security intelligence got wind of this development and to ensure that this planned was destroyed quickly moved into action.
    Today new ballot papers are going to be designed, but the process must be teleguided to avoid the leakage by paid APC agents working in INEC.

    A sad news to APC leaders and their supporters, the New ballot papers will only be designed, approved and printed just few days to election.

    So it will be too late for APC to print its own janjaweed ballot papers

    So the fake ballot papers already printed by Apc are now useless.

    No wonderrrrr——-they cry blood, tears and sorrows for APC camp

    APC, wake up and be smart. Invite CNN, BBC and other international news media for your briefing. That is the only language Jonathan understands. With Nigerian news media, he does not give a damn. Just look back at the Chibok girls affair. What did the President do until the international news media weighed in on the case? His wife went on NTA to tongue-lash everyone. But when the international news media took up the matter, the dynamics changed.
    This is a free advice for APC. If Jonathan can get someone to write an op-ed piece in the Washington Post for him, APC should find a way to get what is going on in Nigeria into the influential international media news media like New York Times, Wall Street Journal apart from the TV networks.

Personally I hate the way Nigerians generally depends on oil, the money of which is always being squandered and looted instead of being utilised for National development. In fact, the oil money is even more squandered and looted in the oil producing states. So Otile and co have a lot of homework to do to ensure the leaders of oil producing states are accountable to their people.

Every year crowds of zealous muslims gather and circle round the black stone in a superstitious ceremony where they claim to be throwing rocks at the devil. What do they gain from that? Do they believers ever succeed in stoning him to death?

            Why should they use our oil money to sponsor a fruitless jamboree of that magnitude? Think about it. The Qu-ran or Hadith may demand it but do you think it is real? The Saudis are the ones making a windfall for the jamboree.

I expect you to intelligent, educated and consistent in your arguments. Your results to attacking Muslims is the result of your attempt to defence GEJ at every slight opportunity despite the fact that this man’s performance is a total failure by every standard.

    MILITARY NO WAY TO RIG PRESDENTIAL ELECTION, NIGERIA NO BE EKITI… #MILITARYorPROSTITUTES

  • Sword of Damocles

    i will urgently advise INEC to publish on its web site the alleged letter from the military urging the postponement of the elections for 6 weeks. There are now rumors that the military is surprised by Prof Jega’s words on saturday indicating that he was “blackmailed” into postponement. It appears that GEJ’s treasonous government is aware that the whole world now knows that the worthless market thief from Otuoke was behind the events of saturday, and that his “junta” is feeling the heat of a civilian-military putsch in 21st century Nigeria. i cannot see a peaceful end for Jonathan, THINKING carefully apparently is not his strong suit. For him to embarrass Nigeria the way a “mugabe” would embarrass Zimbabwe is an unforgivable slight on the people and honor of Nigeria. By the way NASS, we are watching you while all this wuru-wuru is going on, neither body has spoken on the postponement, Ekiti-gate, or the $20billion audit(yes they will reconvene on 2/17/15). Are you with the people & Nigeria, or are you with the traitors, the betrayers of trust? You cannot hide on this one,

    • Dominic Price

      SOLODO is Talking about $469 Billion, In fact you are left behind my friend!

  • evi

    Apc is trying to divert attention from the fact that their evil plan with Jega has been exposed, they planned to disenfranchise and reduce the voting strength of southern voters, that is why you have 80% pvc collection rate in the north and barely 30% pvc collection in the south, even children, chadians and nigeriens have collected pvc in the north

    • Gaskiya

      Na lie u dey talk.

    • Etomi

      God bless you!!!!!!
      That is it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Jega was hell-bent on rigging the election for APC’s Buhari…
      1. Buhari is known not to be qualified to contest in this election going by strict provisions of law; yet Jega was willing to bend the rule for him; Buhari did not complete his filling of INEC form; yet Jega, who ought to be an impartial and forthright umpire, did nothing to approach him to do the needful, as required by the Electoral Act…
      2. Jega made sure that whereas there as nearly 100% PVC distribution in the north; in the south, the PVC distribution was barely 50%….and was hell-bent under the wanton discrepancy to hold election on Feb. 14…
      What else is rigging!?!?!
      If you think rigging only consist in ballot stuffing and snatching, then you are mistaken…
      Jega was hands-in-glove with northern elders and the APC to upstage GEJ through rigging…
      APC’s rigging machine primed and zeroed on INEC to do the dirty job, and no serious government would watch idly as the malfeasance is hatched to its own destruction!!!!!!!
      Good riddance to bad rubbish…

      • Ibraheem Aruna

        Mr Etomi, at your level you ought to be apolitical. I am amazed at your comments.

  • warry

    APC ideology is lies,manipulations,propaganda,and more lies. They have employed international liars to manage their lies to deceive Nigerians. The same Buhari that said Boko Haram has over run the entire North East and we must make him president so that he can ask Boko Haram to stop in 2 weeks, is now saying Boko Haram has not done much. Let Inec just give everybody their PVC and let’s vote.

  • excel

    Pdp are serial failure,the mouth of Jega, the words of jonathan. CHANGE is a must…. March4GMB

    • Etomi

      Those who say they are voting for CHANGE are only voting for empty sloganeering….
      The current 1999 Constitution can never allow for any positive change to take place in Nigeria…
      NEVER!!!!
      Nigeria has been existing as an independent nation since 1960 with a prime minister, presidents, heads of state coming and going yet Nigeria remains Peter Pan—ZERO PROGRESS!!!!
      Suddenly, it is ILLITERATE BUHARI that would effect the change which past Nigerian leaders could not bring about in 55 years…
      You are being manipulated like deft advertisers do; but obviously you don’t know it….
      “CHANGE” is a powerful campaign slogan…
      Read Robert Greens’ “48 Laws of Power,” and understand how it works like a narcotic or powerful campaign weapon…
      At best the CHANGE sloganeering of APC would only make you vote for their presidential candidate, ILLITERATE BUHARI…
      In the final analysis, however, it would mean and count for nothing if or when he gets into office, as it is CEREBRAL leadership, not campaign slogan that would be put to task when the difficult issues of governance stares him in the face…
      I believe radically that Nigeria is safer with GEJ than with ILLITERATE BUHARI!!!!!!!

      • Dominic Price

        ILLITERATE where ??? All I See is giant PIG with FAKE PhD.

        • Etomi

          Never knew time would come in our nation when we would have to cry dry for a man seeking to preside over the affairs of our country to show proof that he has the barest formal education…
          It is totally disconcerting!!!!!!!!!!!
          What value would a Buhari presidency promote, other than, “You don’t need to go to school in order to occupy the highest office in the land…”

    This commentary is coming to you live from the main bowl of Nigeria’s national political arena.

    The cloud is gathering!

    What a deft move by the easily underrated team – it has thrown the self-appointed unbeatables into disarray – into uncontrollable screaming and ranting.

    I am not sure they know what hit them.

    The score board reads: Accursed Propaganda Conmen 0 – 1 to The so called “Clueless One.” It is a vital away goal.

    Does the “Clueless One” have a few more surprises before the second leg on March 28? What can I say?

    Till then, I am returning you to the main studio in Propaganda Times (PT) where our colleagues who support the losing team 100% are as stunned as the Accursed Propaganda Conmen players.

    From me, and the production team of the outside broadcast, it’s goodbye but watch. The so called “Clueless One” may not be without some Maradona skills as we were erroneously informed.

    • Etomi

      Agreed!!!!
      The cloud that is gathering is that Oduduwa Republic is about to be born!!!!
      And the Niger Delta (SS/SE) can’t wait to get back their land…
      And the Islamic Republic of northern Nigeria is set to burst forth!!!!!!

    NIGERIA MUST NOT BREAK BUT MUST BOIL NOW!!!

    Nigerians! Nigerians!! Nigerians!!! The time to boil is NOW, not later. The ruling cabal elites have just totally aborted Nigeria’s pregnancy of change by postponing the elections. Nigerians hear me well: FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS WILL NOT HOLD IN 6 WEEKS AS PROMISED. Any Nigerian that believes free and fair elections will hold is merely indulging in a pipe dream. It is an egregious lie by the ruling elites cabal. If elections ever hold, it will be a caricature, a compromised, phony and sham arrangement designed by the elite ruling cabal to suit their purpose. The elites will never allow free and fair elections that will end their reign of plunder and expose them to prison terms by an incoming administration. Postponing the elections is merely a prelude to a far more sinister and far reaching plot by a corrupt few to hijack and supplant the will of the entire nation for change. So Nigerians gear up for and begin this non violent struggle now.The long suffering long oppressed Nigerian electorate must fight back, viciously! This is not a fight to be fought with violence because the elites have calculated their options and are prepared to waste precious Nigerian lives to sustain their grip on the jugular of Nigeria. When AIG Mbu and other military commanders were redeployed recently, it was to prepare the ground for the unleashing of governmental instruments of violence on unarmed Nigerian masses. The elites have already calculated and prepared for these unfolding events. So Nigerians, this is a fight that must be fought by slow, protracted and sustained strangulation of the elites by overwhelming massive indefinite sit at home strikes by govt workers, internal insurrection within the security agencies by patriotic soldiers, patriotic policemen and security agents, coordinated massive demonstrations at ALL Nigeria’s embassies abroad, unrelenting mass media excoriation and condemnation of the elites and so forth. Nigerians hear me and hear me well: The problem of Nigeria is not ethnic separatism, religious or regional separatism. The problem of Nigeria is CORRUPT ELITES!!! The problem of Nigeria is the problem of class war being waged by corrupt elite class against the Nigerian masses using Boko Haram, ethnic, religious, lying propaganda, blackmail, bribery and violence weapons. The political, economic, religious and military elites in the North, South, East and West of Nigeria are only interested in the perpetuation of the class status quo that oppresses and plunders the common man in the North, South, East and West of Nigeria and they are deploying lies, smear campaigns, Boko Haram, regionalism and ethnic fears to divide and confuse the masses. Nigerians must resist the temptation to clamor for breaking up Nigeria into splinter units. It is not the panacea. For example, let us look at states creation. State government structures are a microcosm of regionalism. In short, state government structures are regional governments on a smaller scale. States creation represents Nigeria’s recurrent attempt at catering to ethnic self determination within the federal complex. But this has not solved Nigeria’s problems. Rather it has only exacerbated it by creating new classes of plundering, looting oppressive elites in those created states. Same failures obtains in carved out local governments. The institution of local govts is supposed to bring national resources and government even closer to the grassroots to cater to the common man’s social development needs. But what has emerged in the Nigerian case is that new elites have merely emerged within all those localized government structures to plunder and oppress the common man even the more. This shows that breaking up Nigeria into South-South, South-East and so forth will not address the fundamental question plaguing the Nigerian entity. The fundamental problem tormenting the Nigerian nation is the allocation of resources between the competing needs and interests of the elites vis a vis the interests and needs of the masses. The common man wants the wealth of Nigeria to be evenly distributed among all Nigerians. The elites of Nigeria want the wealth of Nigeria to be exclusively shared only among the elites. The solution? Get rid of the corrupt elites. Stamp out corruption and misappropriation of public resources. Then deploy the wealth of Nigeria towards the betterment of the ordinary Nigerian. Nigeria’s problem will be solved! Nigerians every where in the North, South, East and West are loving, peaceful, hardworking people. Solve their common problems of poverty, unemployment, infrastructure development, power and water supply, good roads, housing, healthcare, security, education and civil rights and there will no longer be need to resort to regional or ethnic agitations. The United States govt knew what the evil Nigerian elites were up to all along. That was why President Obama dispatched Secretary Kerry on short notice to Nigeria a few weeks ago. That was why America my Fatherland refused to sell arms to Nigeria my Motherland. The weapons will only be used to massacre and suppress the suffering Nigerian masses. The United States itself is the world’s largest and most diverse federal system democracy. Yet the federal structure functions so well it has made the US the world’s strongest and wealthiest nation in the world because the tenets of transparency, accountability, rule of law, fairness and equity are rigorously upheld! These tenets are what Nigeria is sorely lacking. Sectarian sentiments arise when corruption, inequality and lopsidedness at the central level characterize the allocation of resources, rights and opportunities among the nation’s component units and peoples. Once equity is deployed in solving the common problems common to all Nigerians in all regions, Nigeria’s problem is solved. Nigeria will thrive. Nigeria’s collective strength is better than her fractured strength. Nigeria is better together and stronger together as a unified entity, properly led and dynamically ruled by an altruistic minded champion of the common man. Not misled and mis-ruled by a clueless, corrupt, treacherous and callous simpleton who does not give a damn about the common Nigerian masses and had the temerity to bluntly tell them so to their faces! What an insult!

    GOODLUCK JONATHAN IS AN INSANELY EVIL, SNEAKY, DEVIOUS, DANGEROUS AND RUTHLESS SNAKE. NIGERIA AND NIGERIANS BETTER WAKE UP FROM THEIR SLUMBER AND RECOGNIZE THAT THAY ARE DEALING WITH A SMILING DESPOT, DUBIOUS DEVIL, CALCULATING CRIMINAL AND BLOODTHIRSTY BAHSTARD. WHOMSOEVER TAKES GOODLUCK JONATHAN AT FACE VALUE DOES SO AT THEIR OWN PERIL!!!

    Thus this should be the collective message of ordinary Nigerians to the ruling cabal……”Listen up you parasitic elites, you constitute only 1% of the total population. But you have held us 169 million Nigerians in bondage and squalor for too long. Your time is up. You can no longer succeed in manipulating, confusing and dividing us masses with your lies, divisiveness and distractions of inane, inconsequential and irrelevant issues of paper qualification, religious sentiments and ethnic divisiveness. Be wise while you have the chance to peacefully exit the corridors of power to go enjoy the stupendous wealth you have stolen from us the oppressed common Nigerians. Nigeria and we Nigerians can and will heal from the horrific wounds you have inflicted on us if you exit and a champion of the common Nigerian takes office. He will stamp out corruption. The elections must not be postponed, aborted nor cancelled. The elections must hold and the will of the common Nigerian must prevail. But you elites must exit or be consumed by the wrath of the masses.
    A word is enough for the wise”

  • Mr. Abdin

    change has come and nothing will stop that by the grace of God.

  • Afo

    Well said and Nigerians are together on this. NASS must pass a resolution banning the military from arresting anyone before, during and after election unless approved by INEC and getting to polling areas. They must take directives from INEC chairman on election matters, if their services are required. Any attempt to scuttle election or our democracy must be successfully resisted by simply asking everybody to stay at home and close down the country, and for a few days the people will win the battle. Let God Almighty deal with GEJ and all his supports the way they are dealing with Nigerians, and may the blood of the innocent Nigerians killed by boko haram be upon their heads and the heads of their family members. May God give us leaders who are embodiment of peace, righteousness, Justice and fairness. Amen.

    Since the return to civil rule in 1999,the Nigerian Military especially the army has been aiding PDP in rigging every election. Go to rural areas and see how soldiers pack electoral materials to the house of a PDP chietain. You dare not get close to such a location, else you will be shot and killed. They will go ahead and cook up an allegation that you wanted to hijack election materials. But for open partisan role of the Nigerian army over the years,the PDP would long have been in opposition and struggling to come back to power. The PDP sees most rural aareas especially in the South East and South South parts of the country as places they can harvest votes using soldiers. With the help of technology, this time,they should be in for a surprise as they will be recorded live in this act and posted for the world to see their new role in subverting the will of the people. In other climes, election is pure civil duty, security for which is provided by Boys’ scouts and in very extreme cases of disturbances, the police are invited. In the second Republic, this ignoble role of aiding the ruling party to cart away election materials was performed by the Mobile Unit of Nigeria Police. Nigeria is a country where corrupt rulers make the military perform general duties, from mounting road blocks to arrest and detention of couples who are have marital issues. In this election, Soldiers who will escort election materials to the house of politicians, should start now to prepare how they will deny when the video of their act will go virile on the internet before they settle down to thumbprint

    “The mosques and Orthodox churches freely complied but the pentecostal churches….” The only way out for us is to stop giving to these churches, give to the poor, needy and sick, that’s what Jesus taught us, as for tithes, if you feel compelled by your faith, then appropriate to causes that’ll help humanity or better still invest in children who can’t afford to go to school, pay their school fees and you shall be truly blessed of the Lord…but giving to these hardened criminals called pastor is tantamount to aiding and abetting corruption…a contradiction to the teachings of Christ but Nigerians would never learn because in their minds they can bribe God…pastors, make una dey enjoy…

  • The truth will set you free

    oga stop wasting your time. an average Nigeria doesn’t care
    why do you think Politicians can get away with anything in Nigeria and most people don’t care
