Nigeria’s National Security Adviser Wants Elections Postponed

Nigeria’s national security adviser, Col. Sambo Dansuki today during a question and answer session at a conference in London suggested next month’s presidential and parliamentary elections should be postponed because not all voter cards had been distributed. Dansuki said this has been his advice to INEC, but the chairman keeps insisting everyone will have one before elections, but he doubts if that can be so. Hear him;

“We said (to the Independent National Electoral Commission), look, there is a problem… We still have about 30 million… (voter) cards to distribute.

“Look at the possibility of shifting this thing and doing it when everybody has a card because it doesn’t cost you anything, it is still within the law and it is safer for all of us.


“So, that is what we are encouraging. They (INEC) keep assuring us that everybody will have his card but I doubt it,” he said.

  6. GEJ and PDP are playing with fire.
    Trying to destroy a whole nation because of personal greed.
    Most greedy and incompetent African leaders are always trying to force themselves on the people by all means.
    Men like them thrive and survive in chaotic societies where they can misuse their office, trample on the rules of law and advance agendas based only on personal greed.
    Democratic Republic of Congo going through the same thing right now.
