(1)Democracy in Nigeria has become a sham..I personally have serious doubt about the present INEC’s integrity, impartiality and competence to conduct a fair, free and credible election.
(2) Osun State gubernatorial election was a fraud.. , what was conclusive was declared inconclusive despite all advice to the contrary. That rerun was unnecessary.
(3) Expect from INEC incidences of deliberately contrived, broken or non-working voting machines or card readers, confusion of voters as to their voting stations, inadequate supply of voting materials to designated places, long line to discourage voters… the Commission’s hands will be tied to enable hatchet men .The transmission and collation of results are subject to interference, manipulation and meddling.
(4).Buhari can not conduct free, fair, credible and peaceful elections.He has track record of hollow words, impunity, insensitivity and ‘I-couldn’t-care-less’ .
(5).The derailment of Nigerian democracy under Buhari will be a monumental disaster comparable to the disaster of the Nigerian first military coup.
(6).International community should work out punitive measures against INEC and security officials especially the Police and politicians. Such measures can vary from denial and withdrawal of visas from the people concerned and from their families to other more stringent measures including their accounts being frozen and taking them to International Criminal Court, ICC.
(7)Vice-President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo – a learned man, an enlightened person in all parameters – was seen at various markets in Lagos State and Abuja distributing N10,000 each to market women. What an absurdity!
What an act by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria lawyer, number 2 man in the Executive hierarchy; Osinbajo must have gone for, “if you can’t beat them, join them”.
(8).Amina Zakari has become too controversial a figure to be able to give assurance of free, fair and credible election for INEC. President Buhari and her family have declared that there is no blood relationship but there is relationship through marriage .
(9).President Buhari and his hatchet men in the coming election think that the judiciary must be primed in their favour. Hence, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen, has been harassed and prosecuted for non-declaration of his assets without following the Constitution and the law, just to make him conform or set him aside for a Buhari man to take over or act, as President Buhari and his people believe no stone should be left unturned to rig Buhari in.
(10).Buhari has succeeded in deceiving us the first time and we will be fools to allow ourselves to be deceived the second time. Buba Galadima, who knows Buhari very well as a confidant and National Secretary of Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, describes him as inflexible, insincere, dubious, intolerant, never accepts responsibility when things go wrong and impervious to reason and advice for change. If you cannot change your mind, you cannot change anything is the assertion of George Bernard Shaw.
(11).What is happening under Buhari’s watch can be likened to what we witnessed under Gen. Sani Abacha in many ways. When Abacha decided that he must install himself as Nigerian President by all means and at all costs, he went for broke and surrounded himself with hatchet men. Buhari has started on the same path in mad desperation.
(12). Buhari and his party are recruiting collation officers who are ready to do their will. . It is the sole reason he has blatantly refused to sign the revised Electoral Reform Bill into law.
(13).His henchmen are working round the clock in cahoots with security and election officials to perfect their plan by computing results right from the ward to local government, state and national levels .
(14).His scheme bears eloquent testimony to this road similar to Abacha … It is clear from all indications that Buhari is putting into practice the lessons he learned from Abacha. Buhari has intimidated and harassed the private sector.
(15).Today, another Abacha Era is here.Nigerians must rise up and do what they did in the time of Abacha. Churches and Mosques prayed. International community stood by us Nigerians. God of Nigeria is a living God and a prayer-answering God. Nigerians must cry out to God
.(16) My fervent prayer is that President Buhari may live to see the will and purpose of God for .History will note that he has been there. Nigeria now needs a man with better physical and mental soundness, with an active mind and intellect.Before I conclude, let me assert that Boko Haram has also been empowered by the Nigerian government through payment of ransom of millions of dollars which each administration disingenuously always denies. This administration has reached the end of its wit. Tough times do not last forever, but tough people invariably survive tough times. We shall overcome.
