Postponement of Elections Will Have Dire Consequences for Nigeria – Gov. Fashola

Published

Governor Babatunde Fashola - February 2014 - BellaNaija 01

Gov. Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State on Sunday, expressed disappointment at the rescheduling of the general elections from Feb. 14 to March 28 and April 11, 2015 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

He told journalists after collecting his Permanent Voter Card (PVC) at his ward in Surulere Local Government Area, that the change in date for the elections lacked merit.

Fashola said the claim by the security agencies that they could not guarantee security for the elections as initially scheduled, illustrated the lack of preparedness for the polls on the part of the election management body.

While describing the rescheduling as “a low point in governance,” the governor said the shift was capable of undermining the nation’s democracy and investment.

“I think Nigerians must be disappointed by the postponement of the polls from February to March because it seems as if INEC was ambushed to take that decision.

The shift will have consequences for us as a nation; the credibility of our governance is regrettably diminished. I do not know of any serious democracy that has set election dates then change them.

I think when a country sets a process in motion like this,it ought to know that there would be political and economic consequences.

Investors watch what is going on. It is really disappointing and when you hear the Federal Government saying they cannot guarantee security, it is more disappointing.

Security is the primary responsibility of the government and whether the nation holds election or not it is the duty of government to provide security.

If countries like Afghanistan and Syria where there is war and internal conflicts still had elections, I do not see why we can’t.

Again, we had elections in 2011 and some of these terror acts had started in 2010.So where was the ability to guarantee security then ? ” he said.

Fashola, however, appealed to Nigerians to remain calm over the development, stressing the need for them to shun anything that could breach the peace.

He noted that the postponement of the polls from Febuary to March is only a matter of time, saying that eligible voters will eventually exercise their franchise.

The governor however said that he was glad to collect his PVC at last and enjoined residents who had not collected theirs to do so.

He appealed to INEC to extend the PVC collection deadline to enable more Nigerians pick up their voter cards.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the governor had earlier addressed a crowd of Arewa APC supporters at the Tafawa Balewa Square,where he urged them to eschew violence.

He said no matter how much they were provoked by supporters of the other political parties, they should stay out of trouble.

Fashola urged members to step up campaigns to ensure victory for the party.

NAN reports that the state’s APC governorship aspirant, Akinwunmi Ambode, and the Iyaloja General of Nigeria, Shade Tinubu-Ojo were among the dignitaries that attended the rally.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

      I agree! I feel completely disturbed that a useless, greedy, unintelligent man like tinubu is in charge of Apc, it really saddens me. But I feel confident knowing that this same political party produced the likes of fashola, a man am very confident in his abilities. I hope this really makes a difference. However, we have two choice either Jonathan or buhari. Pdp has produced filth over the years, Apc has produced honourable people. Although the fact that tinubu is in control disgust me way more than GEJ. I think that’s why Apc has hardly shown who their chairman is as they know he’s a bad wretch and of much irrelevance. Fashola is probably the only reason am paying respect to the political party. In short I think what we need to do is vote for neither one of the parties, and vote for the woman because honestly both parties are full of shit

      You just copy-pasted the PDP propaganda that is currently circulating. While I don’t denounce that he may own or have shares in all that you have listed, I think it’s sometimes worth-while for us to verify the things that PDP/APC campaign managers (or persons) choose to circulate.

      …and if Tinubu is as corrupt as you listed, why cant GEJ try him? If he really did steal all those things from the government, shouldn’t there be away for him to be called out and persecuted for his corruption?

      Why didn’t Obasanjo try him? Why didn’t Fashola try him? It’s interesting how pro APC folks easily wave away the wrongdoings of their party stalwarts yet they blame GEJ for everything! These people are dirty, APC and PDP, but to constantly try to rewrite history and feed us the change mantra is bs. Buhari is no saint, a man with his hands stained with innocent blood is now a hero. I hate to choose between these 2 but I have little choice ; I’d just go with who I perceive to be the lesser evil!

And as for prosecuting, forget about it he has got the money to employ the services of the very best Lawyers. May God help Nigeria Amen.

      You need to travel round Nigeria bro. Fashola talked 70% more than he did. Most of which we are being taxed and billed at toll gates for. Governors in the east worked eh ( except Abia sha). Rochas from APC just dey make noise. Rotimi won under the PDP platform and worked well but in abt 2 years of being in APC, everyone is using him as a credible example of APC producing good people. Nigerians love propaganda sha but so long as God loves this country, Buhari WILL LOOSE. When they are ready for change, they will arrest themselves for corruption and bring a credible candidate.

      Dear Mabel, you can hate him all you want. We really don’t care and it don’t mean squat either. After all its easy to hide behind the anonymity of the Internet to spew bile. Babatunde Raji Fashola is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and a two term governor. Do you know what the first part means? It means the “ode” is a highly cerebral and intelligent fellow who has attained the highest level in the law profession which you could never achieve in whatever it is you do for a living. So go ahead and hate, it is allowed. It is in a human’s nature afterall, to hate what he can’t understand.

    There are rarely saints in politics. Politics by its nature taints even the best. Sometimes you have no choice but to dine with the devil or do things that you may not be proud of (Obama is a good example).
    We have to value the “better” ones. Even Donald Duke that everyone raves about is not clean. However, he is cleaner than most and did “something”.

    • Missy J

      February 9, 2015 at 1:02 am

      Donald Gini???!!! they rave about his cuteness and not his accomplishments. D. Duke channeled the whole state money into Obudu Cattle ranch and Calabar Carnival and did absolutely nothing for the state. Liyel Imoke in my opinion did way better than Donald Duke. 98% of the roads in Obudu abandoned by Donald Duke were tarred by Liyel Imoke. Imagine!! After making the ranch in Obudu a world class resort he left the people if Obudu with nothing.
      But the guy cute sha oh.

    • Hugo

      February 9, 2015 at 9:05 am

      Please don’t talk sh*t. I lived in Calabar when Duke was governor and he remains the best governor Cross River has seen by a long mile. For you to have mentioned Imoke in the same breadth with him shows you don’t really have a clue as to what governance is about. We Nigerians have a penchant for mudslinging individuals while relegating performance to the back burner. A case in point is Rivers State. Folks call Amaechi all sorts of names but the fact remains that in terms of performance, he easily belongs in the best three amongst the thieving lot called state governors.

    February 8, 2015 at 11:39 pm

    Why I will never support APC.

    1. APC is a regional party
    2 APC is not just. Regional, un democratic but a private party owned by Tinubu.
    3. Tinubus policies is anti people
    4. APC in lagos do get away with a lot because Lagos has over 70% non indigenes as a result they don’t. Ask government. Questions.
    5. Mention any protest against Lagos government that was given a fair consideration? Protesters at the toll gates were tear gassed!
    Yes the chairman of a whole Lekki phase one was taken away in black maria!
    He was detained by fashola. It beats my imagination how people say GEJ tear gassed them at Ojota. The tear gas at Ojota was for people who still gathered after fuel saga was resolved.
    6. Lagos state exploit non indigenous, any place you see bad roads and few development are where non indigenes reside. Eg lekki,Ojo,only the expressway was done by Lagos state the rest streets where individual and corporate efforts.
    7. No other fellow has APC but Tinubu,he determines who go to house of assembly,senate,Vice President and President!
    Yes he choose Buhari and Buhari had NO HAND in the choice of osinbajo! He said it clearly“my party will decide”What an authoritarian.
    Tinubus Lagos established of manner of money making agencies ranging from LASTMA, LASAA, KAI, CBD, Area boys, NURTW etc to daily exploit and intimidate people. Market women are made to pay N1,500- 2000 on a daily basis for a portion of land to display their goods. Yes a crayfish,banana,yam,potato sellers. Please do your research. These monies are daily given to the area boys assigned to that environment and the poor artisans watch these area boys spend these monies under their very nose.
    They claim it is a tax but a fat lie, it is for the servicing of Tinubus area boys! For political thuggery.
    8. Lagos is run like a cultist organisation, no matter how bad you are as long as you are in APC you are painted as white as snow,the moment you don’t belong to them they call you names! FKK
    9. Lagos state running is shrewded. FOI bill is not practicable in Lagos. Today we know so much about the federal government that we all call them corrupt because they told us every thing,food, number of plane,news paper budget etc in Lagos if you ask too much they will eliminate you.
    10. APC members do not love nigeria as they claim,the only thing holding the evil men together is to wrestle power of Jonathan and PDP.
    11.APC is a disjointed party pretending to be united only when it is about wrestling power off PDP.
    12. Its an elitist party where a few hold the wealth and breed area boys, alamajiri as it’s foot soldiers.
    APC is worst than PDP but have proud grounded criminals. PDP criminals are rather ashamed and thus silent.
    13. Tinubus APC appoints and depose his political leader, he sigle handedly appointed Fashola,and now Ambode- abike Dabiri has been told to step down for some one else. He ordered Olorunnibe Mamora to step down for his wife,Remi.
    14. Tinubu is a greedy half human,his greed has given him 50% of Lagos! Yes he owns the choicest and his Alpha beta commision is more than some states allocation.
    15. Lagos is so business unfriendly, I am tired of watching CBD harrass business people. Land use charge, cost of C of O is in million.

    On the other hand on why I am not happy with GEJ 100%?

    1. I was not impressed with the fight on corruption. Agreed that he impressed on it electronically, mandating Govt agencies and parastatals to pay electronically, using an application to controll military salaries, GAPS from GTBank,NIBBS etc, weeding over 60,000 ghost civil servant, civil servants now receive monies via their banks, he did not quite attack some obvious once personaly.
    2. Jonathan did not mention the people he thinks where behind Boko haram who gave his government no rest.

    Aside these faults Jonathan has achieved what no leader had the courage to do.
    1. Electoral reform that he instituted even a reform that is a threat to his re-election! This is the firts in Africa.
    2. Privatised Electricity. Every one including the opposition agreed that it’s is a step in the right direction and promised that if APC is voted for every thing power will be over in three years. And I ask? Why do we not give the brave GEJ same three years. Remeber in 1999 Bola ige said that in year 2000 Nigerians will not import generators. He was killed misteriosly.
    3. Diversifation to agriculture- you know the story
    4.Road constructions- haven’t you observed that even opposition do not promise road construction as GEJ has touched incredible roads in almost all states felt one form of road rehabilitation and construction. Lagos Ibadan, Kogi Lokoja, Ore Benin roads.
    5. Freedom of information bill. This I am particularly happy with that I have freedom before and after speech. As a matter of fact it is easier and safer to insult Jonathan than insult the Local government chairman.not to talk of the governors.
    6. GEJ is highly democratic. We have protested in N5000 billhe cancelled it, we protested for MAULAG he allwed us be. GEJ is very patient and outstandingly humble.
    7. GEJ rehabilitated rail
    8. GEJ has spent this four years laying foundation for several thing I can’t mention, standardisation of export, agric,iron ore production,
    9. Nigeria became investment destination
    10. Capital market revitalization

    Dr Jonathan gentle strides has set the country for greater hights.

    I will support GEJ who is more people oriented. Where basic human right is first respected. Where your tribe does not determine your success politicaly. GEJ is willing to make changes. GEJ has learnt bitterly that he practical cries for his mistakes and is willing to changes. I happen to know a friend who knows him. He cries he want to redeem his name and be happy again. This is evidenced by his running to God. I will give GEJ another chance. I beg on his behalf to please forgive. Please join me in re electing GEJ

    God bless Nigeria
    Thank you.

    It seems like this is lose-lose for GEJ. If the elections hold and there is uncontrollable chaos, you will blame him Sir. As we now know, erring on the side of caution has also earned him boos. He cannot win because he is an incumbent. Nevertheless, we should ask ourselves – if GEJ is so lame, whether the vote takes place in February or March wont matter because he will still look lame, right? So why is APC so worried? You forget that Nigerians have prayed for the will of God to be done. We dont know if that means APC or PDP. We just know his will will be done. If that election was supposed to happen on Saturday, even an earthquake would not have postponed it. So let us all relax and continue with the campaign. Consider this extra time to gain the confidence of voters. that is all we the citizens ask. Use this time to tell us more about your strategies. And I am speaking to both parties.

    I still wonder, we have more than 13 presidential/vp candidates, yet, the whole election is hinging on 2 parties. Why? What happened to the other candidates? We’ve not done any research on them to be intimated, yet we are all about APC n PDP and still complaining. Must we choose between only these 2 parties? Or is this just a case of ‘the devil you know is better than the angel you don’t know?’
    I’m seriously wondering….

      Is this a case of we have not done any research yet or they have not put themselves out there enough? If you check for some of these parties online, no manifesto. Nothing! Some of them you have to rely on Facebook link to even get a glimpse of them. Well, kowa has tried but I cant even blame them because it is a lot of funds to campaign and if you don’t have that it sells you short. If you watched a debate last week where they were present, I don’t even think anyone would even want to consider them apart from one woman who I can’t remember Her name right now. It was like a gathering for unserious candidates to come and play.

      Plus, Ever heard of a two-party system? Yes? That is what Nigeria is. But apparently we are meant to be a multi-party system! The third parties are there and really, it is there for people to vote them BUT they are third and independent parties. With our electoral system (First-past-the-post aka simple majority voting or plurality voting). These parties would hardly have any major influence in the election. Okay let me rephrase,they can have an influence because indecisive votes and unpleased voters would vote for them instead of the major parties but to win an election based on the electoral system is almost impossible. I mean the incumbent and its opposition would have to be TOTALLY WORST. More so these third parties are too much and so aside from the major parties,the vote for third parties would be too widespread that none of them would get a substantial percentage of the vote.

      But to avoid voter apathy, I say people who don’t like APC or PDP should vote for them because it would definetely pass a message to the ruling party.

      From your first comment – “which is our first president in NIGERIA that is AWOLOWO because of his own selfishness to rule a large empire if not for that we are of 3 different types of tribes in NIGERIA we will be united.”

      Were you ill, asleep or in the toilet when Social Studies lessons took place in Primary school? You need to go back to read on the past Presidents.

      “if not for that we are of 3 different types of tribes in NIGERIA we will be united.”
      “if we are of one language we woll not be facing this problems of yoruba hausa and igbo fighting for post at the same time.”
      “All because of one person. AWOLOWO.”

      We are of three different tribes? Again, you skipped your Social Studies lessons. You are the type who will say Adesua, Okon and Tonye are Igbo people.

      Three different tribes, one language, Awolowo? Such simplistic and incorrect views.

    Dear Governor, you rightly quoted that some of the security challenges had started before the 2011 elections, yet elections held. Why did you not also mention that elections were postponed by two weeks in the 2011 elections. In fact at some polling booths, they had deployed electoral materials and had started accreditation before the postponement was announced. Why wasn’t there an up roar then? Do you honestly agree that the current 66.6% rate (approx) of PVC collection is fair enough? You aren’t even sure how the pendulum will swing.
    Point is this, let us not over politicize this issue. Elections is still set to hold within the time-frame provided by the law which shouldn’t be 150 days earlier or 30 days later than the hand over date being the 29th May.

    “Shut up” / “STFU” in so many comments these days, can Nigerians ever have civil disagreements?! Must you tell someone to shut up simply because they have a different point of view.. Aggression everywhere, na wa.

    The real problems of Nigeria are not the greedy politicians, not the dubious and accidental political office holders nor the slave-master rulers wrongly referred to as leaders; the real problems of Nigeria are the electorates whose power of sound judgement and analytical acumen has been lost to shallow sentiments, ridiculous prejudices, unreasonably fixed biases and masked selfishness. They are the real enemies of the new Nigeria so much craved by every right-thinking and truly well-meaning Nigerian.

    I smell a rat here. Bruno and Nene appear to be supporting PDP! You both need to publicly declare your assets and show us your account balances for the last six months. Something in me says you may just have received an “alert” of late…

    The problem with the African mind is that 90% of the time it gets clouded by emotions. If we can learn to separate emotions from facts and act in manner consistent with achieving the focused goal, then we could become the super power we are meant to be.

    Lol @ Andilzo. Wao alert? Truthful No. This I can also tell God because I do not have any alert what so ever. Trust me.

    I am an investment analyst, that is why I am privy to the salient,silent reforms that have taken place under GEJ..

    I can not count how many SMEs and new businesses I have had to consult for.

    No cash transferred, nada. Its against my personal belief.

    Love you all

    Nene I am proud of you! It’s people like you our society needs to arrive it’s destination. Looking at the society not only with a bias and blinded view as most Nigerians are but with a critical and factual view. I live In Nigeria but am from Rwanda. And if only many other African countries had the president Nigeria has Africa would be a better place. My fellow Nigerians please give GEJ a second chance and vote for him! Thanks
