MUST READ: INEC Releases the Timetable for the 2015 General Elections

Published

on

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) released the timetable for the 2015 general elections in the night of January 24, 2014, Friday.

The Commission also announced the timetable for the conduct of the governorship election in both Ekiti and Osun States. Both states have early elections.

In a three-paragraph statement INEC revealed that the presidential and National Assembly elections would come first.

Nigerians will elect the President, as well as the members of the national legislature, on February 14, 2015.

Elections for governors, as well as members of the 36 state houses of assembly, are scheduled for February 28, 2015.

The Ekiti State governorship election is to hold on June 21, 2014 while that of Osun State will hold on August 9, 2014.

It would be noted that INEC faces a major test and unprecedented challenge in conducting next year’s general elections.

The recent upheavals in the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, as well as a dramatic rise in the rhetoric of supporters and opponents of President Goodluck Jonathan, have provoked speculations that a rigged election could precipitate a level of post-poll violence that has not been witnessed in Nigeria in a long time.

Tinubu finally speaks on Lekki shooting, tells Buhari to find culprits

Former Governor of Lagos state and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has commented on the Lekki toll gate shooting that left many dead and several others injured.

The Lagos politician who was interviewed via telephone by a Channels TV reporter, Olu Philips, shared his shock over the shooting and also revealed that he is ready to complain to the highest authorities.

Contrary to people’s predictions, Tinubu however denied ordering the shooting and also stated that he can only control his security guard. He again reiterated that he will never be part of any group that uses live ammunition against protesters.

Insisting that he has always been an activist, the APC Chieftain expressed sympathy for the victims of the incident and advised the federal government to “fish out whoever gave the order (for the shooting) and put them on trial”.

He then recalled how he was falsely accused of being behind #EndSARS protests. Tinubu who noted that he doesn’t believe that Buhari ordered the shooting, appealed for calm over the incident. He also denied having a stake in the Lekki toll gate or suffering a loss due to the continous blockage of the area by #EndSARS protesters.

He said,

“It is early hours of the morning, there’s no way I can talk to the authorities or wake them up now. I have tried to reach the NSA, I have tried to reach the head of the army.

“You don’t call the president at this hour, but I strongly condemn the act. There are other means of settling or dispersing protest. Why would they use live bullets? There are rubber bullets.

“I am not even sure yet they are Nigerian army, I am not sure how well the uniforms of the army are controlled. But that is not as critical as the bloodshed that has occurred.

“We have lost our sleep, we have lost our peace of mind, (and) we just have to deal with it.”
