President Goodluck Jonathan is trying to set a legal precedent by firing his ministers days before the end of his administration (May 28, 2015). Depending on how the new administration takes it, a public indictment or a hit list either way Jonathan has just called Buhari’s bluff.
Everyone living in Nigeria today know our digital network is at best unreliable and can be as horrible and frustrating as the electricity supply. These network providers who rely on electricity to power their network infrastructure have learnt to deliver third world digital service to their Nigerian subscribers. They power their tens of thousands of cell towers with diesel fuel generators. These greedy corporations like MTN, Airtel, Glo, Globalcom, Etisalat and company would rather burn the planet with fossil fuels than invest in solar or wind energy to power their cell towers.
Then comes the brilliant minds in INEC who have millions of young uncorrupt minds from the National Youth Service Corps at their disposal to hand count reliable paper ballots, instead they bought digital readers a technology that can easily be hacked on a dime. It goes without saying that no tests or simulations were ever performed on this product nor an audit of the acquisition process. Just so am not stating the obvious the Good Fellas at INEC went with mission impossible for the billions of dollars they stand to rip off. – @OgbeniAyotunde
