BLOGGER’S COMMENTS

Who would then win? While I’ve stated here that APC cannot not win the Southwest IN A FREE & FAIR ELECTION despite all the shenanigans and tons of money thrown into the project, and while I do know the elections have to go ahead despite the entreaties by many opinion writers that RESTRUCTURING must precede any election to be meaningful, the urgency and desperation of Buhari and his APC remains the path forced on Nigerians.

My thoughts on the way forward did not really crystallize until I read above PUNCH story.

Informal furthter research I’ve carried out in the last two weeks confirm my belief that Buhari & his APC CANNOT carry the Southeast, either. My unscientific research remains what I’ve stated here from the time BEFORE Buhari teamed with the APC: talk to as many people as possible from each area you want to sample. Although my SW decision was reached by late September after talking to many by phone OR face-to-face in Oyo, Ondo, Lagos & Ekiti States, the SE informal findings were done on my behalf using the same method. I’m not sure what abracadabra could be used to turn the NE or Middle Belt over to the desperate APC but I have no figures to use than info gathered from news.

BUHARI & THE APC HAVE FAILED AND FAILED WOEFULLY. THEY DO NOT DESERVE ANOTHER CHANCE AT RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM, NEPOTISM, WINK-WINKING TO CORRUPTION, FAILED SECURITY, FAILED RESTRUCTING PROMISE.

Result from the first round of election will show hints because we’ve never gone this way before, and by the time we reach governorship elections, everything would be clear. Hopefully, Buhari – or whoever the masterminds before the insanity going on is/are – would throw in the towel.

The elections, especially the presidential – IF TRUE PATRIOTS REJECT BOTH PARTIES – would be INCONCLUSIVE (not like the supposed Osun governorship “inconclusive” result because none – at least of the 2 major parties – would score 25% of votes cast in 2/3 of the states. No mathematics would resolve that.

WE WOULD HAVE REACHED A BRIDGE THAT WE WILL CROSS EITHER:

  • by cancelling everything and going back to effect restructuring, or
  • dissolve the forced union known as Nigeria, hopefully amicably.

As neither of the two majors can win if most Nigerians who are definitely disastisfied with the current situation vote for another party, the election could end up yielding no winner.

Nigeria’s bridge of-no-return would mean a dismissal and return to the bargaining table for RESTRUCTURNING, but as we’ve never been to that point before, the hardliners who are determined to have the APC & Buhari continue to [mis]rule, they may force chaos upon the country.

Only God can foretell what would follow.
