Jonathan, PDP embark on election extension campaign, bribe TV stations, newspapers houses to support plan Jonathan and the PDP have perfected plans to shift the February polls for another three months. The Monitors gathered from a reliable source that due to daily security reports received by President Jonathan that he will lose the forthcoming election woefully, the only option left is to shift the elections for three months in the first instance and for another three months in the second instance.
Destruction of 2015 election
The security reports which are not favourable to Jonathan are daily getting worse for the President as the Buhari tsunami rages daily. With what is on ground now, it is clear that Jonathan will lose to Buhari with a wide margin! This is why the PDP hawks came up with series of plans to stop the election and push for an interim government. The first of the plans is to hide under insurgency and the fact that Nigeria is at war to shift the elections but INEC did not agree with this position as it told Nigerians about its readiness to conduct the elections.
According to INEC, both sensitive and non - sensitive materials are ready. Also about 70% of voters have collected their PVCs. The second plan is the DSS unwarranted invasion of the APC Data centre with the allegation that APC has hacked into INEC database but later told Nigerians that APC was trying to clone Permanent Voters Cards (PVC cards) without evidence to back up the accusation. The actual plan of the DSS which failed was to accuse APC of hacking into INEC database and that this had destroyed the database as a result of which elections shall be postponed. This option also failed as INEC did not complain that its database was hacked into by the APC or any other organisation!

The third option is to start aggressive campaign about the "Buhari's no certificate issue". The PDP started shouting on the rooftops that Buhari has no certificate but INEC did not agree with them. When the PDP would not stop pestering INEC over the certificate issue, PDP was advised to go to court but up till today, the PDP has not gone to court! Meanwhile, the Military institution which Buhari attended in tthe USA (United States War College) confirmed in writing that the certificate Buhari obtained from them is equivalent to Masters Degree. That put paid to the "Buhari no certificate campaign".
So the third plan also failed. Fourthly, they moved to the fake health record and false report of Buhari's ill health. PDP and its handlers circulated a forged health report that Buhari has prostrate cancer and that he has been flown out to the USA for an undisclosed ailment. Buhari himself debunked this report and continued with his campaign in two states that he was scheduled to visit on that day.
The fifth and the latest plot to shift the elections is by using certain TV Houses to invite speakers to their stations to start arguing in favour of election postponement. In this plot, AIT owned by PDP chieftain Dokpesi), NTA, Silverbird and (STV, owned by Ben Bruce, PDP Senatorial Candidate in Bayelsa State) got N1billion each for this purpose. The Monitors got this information two days ago and it was confirmed on AIT Kakaaki this morning when four guests were invited to the station to start arguing in favour of election postponement. The guests were, former Labour Party Chairman, Dan Anyanwu, Tanko Yinusa from Kaduna State, Alhaj. Shehu Musa former Chief of Staff to Bauchi Governor and Mr. Yinka Odumakin.
They argued in favour of election postponement as predicted. This is a frightening scenario that constitutes clear and present danger. This is a serious threat to the 2015 elections. We call on all Nigerians of goodwill, civil society coalitions, pressure groups and the International Community to rise up and ask Jonathan to start telling Nigerians how he will hand over power.
From the look of things, Jonathan is not ready to relinquish power even if he loses in February. He needs to be given the Burkina Faso treatment!
