The All Progressive Congress (APC) takes a wide lead in the polls in Lagos, Edo, Ogun, Oyo and Osun States. There are reported problems in Rivers States where Governor Rotimi Amaechi‘s movements from poll to poll was restricted by the military using barricades. There was a heated exchange between the Governor and the Brigade Commander.
If the operative word in INEC is “Independent” why then is the Commission taking orders from the President legitimized by past Heads of State to postpone the scheduled election date of February 14, 2015. Well the Independent National Electoral Commission gave into President Goodluck Jonathan‘s order by moving the elections 6 weeks to March 28. The President wants 6 weeks to fend off Boko Haram from their strongholds so everyone in the affected areas can vote.
The people already gave the President 6 years to fend off Boko Haram which he absolutely squandered by ignoring them for those 6 years. The President lied to the people of Nigeria 6 months after more than 200 school girls were kidnapped by Boko Haram that a ceasefire agreement had been reached with Boko Haram and the Chibok school girls will be freed, effectively using the girls for political gain. The President just last month attended a solidarity march in Paris for the 17 people killed at Charlie Hebdo while 2000 people were massacred in Baga Nigeria. No matter though the people of Nigeria are still marching on in March for Buhari.
Mr. President you are dealing with 6s the area code to the Devil. Sweet Bishop Oyedepo proclaims to have the keys to the gates of hell and hipped you to the digits. Then you have Buhari drawing 7s the number of completion from February 14 to March 28 all with the factor of 7. The people of Baga Borno Nigeria got relief from the killings on the 7th of January. – Ogbeni Ayotunde
