While we all pray for the repose of the souls of those who have died in the after-election violence and continue to ask for restraint and calm , I am working on my own comments of the “free and fair elections” which I thought would be ready by this morning.  It should be before the day runs out.

While it is true that this was an improvement on past elections, statistics in the presidential elections beggar belief.  Two examples: of the 14 million+ who supposedly registered in Yorubaland, only about 4.5 million turned out to vote, which represents under 33 percent of which an astounding 2.7 million voted for the much-hated within the region the ruling PDP.

Meanwhile, over in the Southeast, 7.5 million citizens supposedly registered out of which a little over 5 million voted, representing a bewildering 68.9 percent but the abracadabra does not stop there.  Of the 5.075 million “voters”,  4.985 million cast their lot with the PDP while about 90,000 “voters” in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo States said ‘no’ to the PDP.

    I am quite sure jega would carry out a very honest and detailed postmortem of the supposedly free and fair elections and address the sore points.my prayer is that we do not regret this very ‘free and fair’ elections in the next 4 years.
