ENUGU—A Professor of Criminology, Femi Odekunle, has warned that the country may face widespread public disorder, chaos or a semblance of undeclared civil war if the forthcoming general election in the country lacks credibility and acceptability among Nigerians.
Odekunle, who was a guest lecturer at the ‘2014 Feast of Barracuda’ of the National Association of Seadogs (Pirates Confraternity) Enugu Zone, weekend took a critical look at the possible scenarios of the 2015 election from the most optimistic to the most pessimistic position.
He identified the major threats to the 2015 elections as lack of leadership ethos by the irresponsible political class, corruption before, during and after elections, partisanship of operatives of the electoral body among others, saying he envisaged a situation where elections do not hold at all.
He would not also rule out a situation where elections hold with minimal violence and/or rigging and qualifies as ‘relatively/grudgingly’ credible/acceptable election.
There is also a possibility where elections hold but excludes the North Eastern states and therefore considered inconclusive but situation saved by some contraption designed by the so called elder statesmen,” he said.
According to the don, the most critical situation would be where elections hold but are actually or allegedly massively rigged resulting in post election violence on a scale that makes the 2011 violence a child’s play and/or resulting in blockage or sabotage of oil and gas facilities leading to widespread disorder or even a semblance of war.
Odekunle, who spoke on the topic ‘Security and Political Temperature of Nigeria: Implications for 2015 General Elections called for a committed presidential leadership with the political will to do what is right and for deliberate re-education of the political class, INEC, the police and other security agents on the importance of free, fair and credible elections to the survival of the polity.

The man is saying the truth. Nigerians love it when they're lied 2. Most ppl in this country see what's goin on but still choose 2 believe all is well. The truth is that this electn whether rigged or not will spark chaos everywhere. I don't pray Jonathan or the stupid mallams come back 2 power. I pray a credible person who knows what he's doing take the seat. Instead of Jonathan or mallams,let the entity calld "nigeria" break! But meanwhile,ppl shd plan 4 any eventuality.

I have loads of Igbo friends and brothers scattered all over the world and whenever they speak,act or write I always admire their level of intelligence and brilliance. But as for you? You're a disgrace to all well manner and cultured Igbo people. I don't blame u,I'm just disappointed in ur prostitute mother who couldn't spare a little time to give u a good and proper upbringing.

Very good question,here's ur answer: From a yoruba man you expect sound education,proper way of addressing people,respect to all etc. I'll never castigate Igbo,Hausa or any other tribe for that matter becos I know they are millions of  intelligent,respectful and well mannered Igbos and Hausas in Nigeria. People like you are the reason diminishing return keep applying to our country Nigeria because (quote me) U don't see or care about the truth in what one says all you care about is which part of the country he's/she's from. Pathetic,unfortunate vagabond.
