Convener of the Save Nigeria Group, SNG, Pastor Tunde Bakare has called for the postponement of the 2015 general elections by six months. To let the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, review the election timetable as well as the imminent disenfranchisement of Nigerians following its inability to distribute the
Permanent Voters’ Cards, PVC.
Bakare spoke in Lagos yesterday in his State of the Nation’s address with the theme, The
Gathering Storm and Avoidable Shipwreck: How to Avoid Catastrophic Euroclydon, at his church, the Latter Rain Assembly.
Warning of impending dangers for the country if the warning signals were ignored, Vanguard reports that Bakare said the only way to avert the storm was to urgently address some fundamental flaws in the polity.
“I must state that the proposal for suspension of elections is not with a view
to giving the president an avenue for undue tenure elongation but for the purpose of
building a coalition that will bring lasting solutions to our problems.
I have clearly painted a picture of where we are, a disaster is ahead of us. If the
northerner emerges as winner, whether he has won that election fair and square or
not, people will allege rigging. If Jonathan wins the election, fair and square, they will
allege that hie used his power of incumbency to rig the election.
