It was a wonderful experience yesterday at Terra Kulture in Lagos. When we all discussed about the forthcoming Presidential election.
The fact remain, we are practising another brand of Democracy in Nigeria. Our own definition of Democracy is "government of the people, by some people for some people" . The advantages of a normal democracy doesn't go round in Nigeria. The mind set of our "leaders" is to go there and enrich themselves.
Another problem facing this election is insecurity, somebody was saying that won't be a problem. He said minorities will be affected by the insecurity at NE part of the country. "Minorities" in three states is enough to form a majority that can determine the outcome of a poll.
We were also ask what will become the fate of our country in the next 10yrs! That's not far fetch! "Leaders" in power about 30yrs ago are still here dictating the state of the Nation.
But wait! Is INEC ready? My answer is no, if we want to conduct a free and fair election! I will be frank here. Insufficient voting materials and late arrival of many will thrives during the election. And this may not go down well with some people.
Should the election be postponed? No! INEC must perform Magic to carry out a free and fair election! +BBC
