You see this is exactly what ticks me off in the Nigerian electoral system. When it doesn’t lean towards the candidate of the Ruling party, INEC comes up with all sorts of measures to rig the election in their favour.
This highlighted statement below was issued by Mr.Kayode Idowu, chief press secretary to INEC chairman:
“In view of the difficulties experienced with the April 26, 2011 governorship and state assembly election in Imo State, which made the Returning Officer to declare the election inconclusive, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has consulted with its lawyers for advice on the next line of action”.
“The Commission is scheduled to meet tomorrow, Friday, April 29, 2011 to take a final decision”.
“INEC hereby urges everyone concerned to be patient and await further directives, which will be communicated as soon as a decision is taken. The Commission also urges everyone to be peaceful and avoid taking the laws into their hands”.
From the what we’ve just read, I don’t think anyone needs a sooth-sayer to tell us exactly what INEC means by asking us to exercise patience when we know that what they are really asking for is time to work out a “scientific” way to defend the “figures” they come up with. Oh and by the way, what was Gov. Ikedi Ohakim spotted doing at the INEC office in Abuja yesterday?
Anyway, like I stated in one of the previous posts, “SIDON LOOK MODE” has been ACTIVATED. Keeping our fingers crossed, let’s watch and see the what our highly esteemed Independent National Electoral Commission has up their sleeves for us.
