John Momoh is a likable guy but he has made a grievous
mistake with this one and should retreat/backtrack. Channels is being embarrassed here and it can get worse. No empire is big enough such as cannot crumble… sometimes over the most innocuous things. my people in ANRP dont know how to do Aluta. we only know how to blow grammar. I was the first (perhaps) only excluded candidate who has written officially on this matter. I wrote to the ES/DG of BON. I copied the Chairman of INEC and Channels too. This evening, INEC met and the fed me back that the Chairman will call John Momoh to discuss the grievances of the excluded candidates. I am happy. I am not a noisemaker. All I have is my brain… and my God. I dont bow to any man or any group. Anyway, here you have it. These boys can keep going back daily and they can disrupt Channels’ business. If they get violent and one of them is shot by overenthusiastic police, Channels could be shut down. Men should be careful, especially when they are at the top. Nothing has started that cannot be ended. What a pity. In truth, NEDG should be shut down. We dont need their debate again. There are many debates coming up in many places which we shall attend
Also, I see that the whole of Nigeria is relying on my screen grabs. I had the presence of mind to screen grab the citizenspoll.co.uk and nigeriavotes.com polls while they were on. I see that the citizenspoll screen grab is being passed off as the NEDG poll. That is wrong. NEDG’s poll was opaque. Totally dark. They did it in secret because they are old school. They think they can ride roughshod over nigerians the way they have always done. Times have however changed. And with 70 odd candidates in the race for Nigeria’s leadership, I assure you something has changed and something more will change. The more reason why we didn’t come together. If we came together every other person will go back to sleep. We will not see this kind of eye-opening situation. Someone like Sowore or myself may have been chucked out much earlier if we ‘came together’. and It is tough knowing who to trust in politics.
(NB- In spite of being the one to OFFICIALLY write a researched article, I thank other ‘lucky’ candidates who were ‘selected’ initially, for not asking that I be ‘allowed’. I dont want to be ‘allowed’ to debate’. it’s a right.)
