Nigeria’s position on postponing elections...
One man cannot continue to destroy and delay the destiny of
170 million people. Nigeria is bigger than Jonathan and will outlive him.
Enough has certainly been enough. From the banning of the Super Eagles through
the fuel subsidy removal New Year’s gift to this! If the last straw has not yet
broken the camel’s back, the failure of this government if elucidated by a true

poverty expanding, job-seeker humiliating, terrorist fire ceasing, money
laundering, opposition slandering, commonwealth usurping, ‘prinspal’
humiliating, abducted girls denying, massacre ignoring, cabal indulging, shame
stabbing government that will not conduct a simple election for us as and at
All calls for election postponement go hand in hand with the
immediate and unreserved resignation of President Goodluck Jonathan and all his
appointed officers, civilian and military. This is the Nigerian position.
