The best selling author in several tweets wrote :

"I read on my TL many Nigerians who say they traveled to vote and were frustrated by the postponement and cant afford to travel again. God willing, I‘ll provide buses to and fro 4 of the geopolitical zones for such people IRRESPECTIVE of how you intend to vote #BusesForDemocracy

"It is the intention of President @MBuhari, in instigating the postponement, to frustrate voters and cause a low voter turnout. We must not allow that to happen. I call on other wealthy Nigerians to help facilitate a high turnout by providing #BusesForDemocracy to ALL Nigerians

"God willing, I‘ll provide modalities/logistics for the buses. I wish I was rich enough to provide buses to and from all the geopolitical zones, but for now my pocket can only afford 4 zones. But if you can help, please do something. Frustrate the frustraters #BusesForDemocracy"

INEC Will Be Made To Explain The Real Reasons For Its Incompetence - Buhari Blows Hot

Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has suggested that the Independent National Electoral Commission would be made to explain the “real reasons” behind its “incompetence” after all the scheduled elections must have been concluded, Punch Metro reports.

Speaking at the national caucus meeting of the All Progressives Congress held at the party’s national headquarters in Abuja on Monday, the President insisted that the electoral body had no reason to postpone the elections, considering the kind of support it had received from government.

Buhari said, “Definitely, the reason why such incompetence manifested has to be explained to the nation. After the elections, we have to know exactly what happened and who is responsible.

“Otherwise, our efforts to make sure that this system is acceptable would have been eroded.

“The Constitution and the law protected INEC. But they must not take us for granted.

“If, for example, the National Assembly refused to approve what they wanted, INEC would have had moral reasons why they couldn’t perform.

“If the time of four years of election was not constitutionally obeyed by the government, INEC would have a case.

“But we don’t understand the reason for this inefficiency and we have to go into details after the election to find out who is responsible.”

Sick And Dying Baba Suwe Abandoned By His Colleagues

Baba Suwe

Veteran actor, Baba Suwe is said to be dying.

Inside sources say since his celebrated arrest and humiliation for alleged drug smuggling by the NDLEA, Babatunde Omidina a.k.a. Baba Suwe, has never remained his lively self again.

According to The Status, sources told them he is down with an unknown sickness.

Recall three years ago, Yomi Fabiyi brought the story to limelight, but many of his colleagues failed to help.

A Lagos based seasoned radio broadcaster (who pleaded anonymity) to The Status, informed The Status that no one among Baba Suwe’s friends and professional colleagues was willing to help solve his challenge.

Prodded to expatiate, the radio man who claimed he had personally called out such big names like Oga Bello, Jide Kosoko, Dele Odule, Mr. Latin and others on the comedian’s present sorry state, stated that he felt they were running away from Baba Suwe not because he was not good to them but because they are selfish in nature.

“Baba Suwe is a good man. None of his people can say he is bad. And they are not helping him not because he behaved badly to them. They are not helping him because they care only about their family.

That’s the nature of our actors, there is no exception. Imagine the caliber of people I told you I had spoken to about Baba Suwe’s case, yet none looks his way yet.

But if, God forbid, he dies from the problem, they would be all over the place eulogising his qualities which they helped killed by their lack of empathy,” the broadcaster notes.

Police Arrest Three INEC Officials With 10,000 PVCs In Abia State

Three INEC officials have been reportedly busted by the police with as many as 10,000 PVCs in Abia state. Police operatives in Abia State have arrested three officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission for allegedly being in possession of over 10,000 Permanent Voter Cards.

It was gathered that one of the suspects, simply identified as Stella, was arrested at a checkpoint at INEC head office in Umuahia, the state capital. Stella was said to have stuffed the PVCs in the booth of her Honda Accord saloon car with Registration No.AKD 953 FN.

It was gathered that the suspect was arrested while trying to move the PVCs illegally to a location where they were to be used to rig elections in favor of some politicians in the last Saturday’s postponed presidential and National Assembly elections.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Prof. Joseph Iroh confirmed that the suspects were employees of INEC.

He said they were on an official assignment in Ikwuano Local Government Area before they were arrested.

Iroh added that the INEC office in the state was not contacted to properly clear them before they were taken to the police station to make statement.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr Geoffrey Ogbonna, also confirmed that the suspects were arrested by the police.

He said one of the suspects claimed that she was reportedly returning the uncollected PVCs to the INEC head office before she was arrested by the police.

"I Can Swear With The Holy Quran That INEC Told PDP Before Postponing the Election"– Adams Oshiomole

The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), has instructed all its members nationwide to reduce fuel pump price from N145 per liter to N140.

In a statement signed by the National President, Elder Chinedu Okoronkwo, the reduction was effected as a result of Saturday’s last-minute postponement of presidential and National Assembly elections by INEC, Daily Post reports.

According to him, Nigerians traveled to different places across the country to cast their votes, but to their dismay, the election was shifted to Feb. 23.

“IPMAN was prompted to slash N5 from the N145 per liter official Petroleum pump price in a bid to motivate Nigerians to return to vote again on Feb. 23.“We urge all our members across Nigeria to immediately reduce the fuel pump price from N145 per litre to N140 per litre.

“This is because of the political situation that hit the country after INEC suddenly announced the postponement of presidential and National Assembly elections after Nigerians were fully prepared.

“We are all aware how Nigerians travelled to different parts of the country in order to exercise their civic duty; unfortunately, they heard a sad news of postponement of the polls,” Okworonkwo said.
