Those of you following on the drama now know 2 commissioners have now resigned from the electoral body. One did so a few days after the full ruling and yesterday Dr. Akombe quit. This has reduced the commission from 9 to 7. The present composition doesn’t meet the gender requirement as required by law and is in that way unconstitutional.
Yesterday we were treated to a non speech by the commission chair where he said they are ready for election but can’t guarantee that it will be free, fair and credible. He says he has been outvoted by commissioners serving political interests. What this translates to is going to a match where the referee and assistant referees are working with your opponent.
I am here waiting for him to resign. We have plans to picket on 26th October while the chief clown’s party goes to the polls. It will be interesting. If the revolution will not be televised, it will be tweeted and retweeted.
