HUMAN rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), has identified other reasons for the recent postponement of the general elections other than insecurity and poor preparations on the part of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

According to him, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP-led Federal Government connived with the military and other security forces to pressure the INEC Chairman, Professor Attahiru Jega, to postpone the election when they discovered that the Ekiti governorship election rigging tape had exposed their antics because they planned to use the Ekiti State rigging style for the entire country.
Falana spoke on a day Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State asked his immediate predecessor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, to proceed to court and tender the audio clip where it was alleged that soldiers were used to rig the June 21, 2014 governorship election in the state. Fayemi had said that soldiers were ready to testify.

Why PDP, Jonathan pressed for polls shift—Falana
Speaking at the maiden edition of a “Sit Out,” described as service of warning notice to anti-democratic forces in Nigeria, held at the Gani Fawehinmi Park, Ojota, Lagos, weekend, Falana said the election postponement was to enable the Presidency and PDP return to the drawing table and re-strategise.
He, however, warned the National Security Adviser to remember that he was not national security adviser to the chairman of INEC but to the President and so he and the security chiefs should keep off electoral matters and allow Jega do his job as constitutionally specified.
Falana also warned the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, AIG, Zone 2, Mr. Joseph Mbu, over a recent comment credited to him that he would kill six persons if one policeman was killed.
“No one wants any policeman to be killed but we must let Mbu know that he is not a judge. When you have a case of murder, you should arrest the suspected murderer and take him before a judge in the court for his case to be decided. So, you do not have any right in law to kill anybody,” he warned the AIG.

Audio clip is not authentic – Fayose
While dismissing the authenticity of the audio clip, Fayose said it was amazing that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has such a weighty evidence and yet refused to tender it at the election petition tribunal.
Speaking with newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, Fayose, who was apparently reacting to Fayemi’s interview aired on an Akure, Ondo State-based radio station last Thursday, declared that he was ready for the soldiers Fayemi is bringing to the court,
Fayose said it would be good and in the interest of justice for the APC to invite the soldiers who were allegedly used to rig the election
He said: “By inviting the soldiers,they would be able to explain and produce evidence of how and where they committed the electoral fraud in a court of competent jurisdiction. The soldiers should come to give evidence and explain where and how they were instructed to rig the election, whether they were instructed to thumb print ballot papers, or they were instructed to snatch ballot boxes.

ABEG  I AM NOT A PDP SUPPORTER, ALL I WANT IS PROGRESS IN NIGERIA, TALKING OF THIS MAN CALLED FAYEMI IS A WASTE OF TIME, GO TO EKITI AND SEE FOR YOURSELF, THIS MAN DID NOTHING WITH FOUR YEARS IN OFFICE AND HE WANT PEOPLE TO VOTE FOR HIM AGAIN. WHERE ARE WE GOING IN NIGERIA SELF....
A MAN WHO FAILED WOEFULLY SEEKING JUSTICE... ALL I CAN SEE IN FAYOSE IS THAT HE BECOMES BIGGER WHEN HE GET TO OFFICE. GO TO EKITI STATE TODAY, ALL THE GOOD ROAD THERE ARE STILL THE ONES FAYOSE DID BEFORE HE WAS CHASE OUT OF OFFICE... IF FAYOSE IS RUNNING FOR ANY OFFICE, I AM SURE APC WILL LOSE WOEFULLY... ANAMBRA HAD THE SAME ELECTION AND NOBODY IS COMPLAINING, NGIGE DID WELL, BUT HE IS IN A WRONG PARTY IN ANAMBRA. THIS IS THE REASON HE FAIL TO WIN THE GUBERNATORIAL ELECTION, IN EDO MOST PEOPLE WANT OSHIOMOLE IN OFFICE.... BUT IN EKITI, 65% OF THE POPULATION WANT FAYOSE IN OFFICE. LET FAYEMI GO TO ANY PANEL AND LET THEM HAVE THE ELECTION AGAIN, HE CAN NEVER DEFEAT FAYOSE IN EKITI... FAYOSE IS A GOD FATHER IN EKITI BECAUSE OF THE GOD WORK HE DID WHEN HE WAS IN OFFICE..
