Just when we thought we had seen it all during this presidential election, a new rabbit is pulled out of the proverbial hat. With my mouth agape, I watched as Godsday Orubebe, the former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs in Nigeria and an alleged Man of God, made a pitiful mockery of himself on live television.
I guess he could sense that the votes were not swinging in his party's favour so he took it upon himself to hold the result collation process hostage for almost twenty minutes on live television. He held on to the microphone and screamed about how Professor Jega, the INEC Chairman has shown himself to be partial and tribalistic. This same Jega has been in charge of the two previous electoral processes when it favoured PDP but of course he wasn't tribalistic then, it is only now that the APC are in the lead that he has taken up tribalism and partiality as a hobby.
One thing I took away from that toe-curling show of shame is that indeed patience is a virtue because the INEC Chairman allowed this so called Elder Statesman rant and rave to his fill before schooling him as you would do a recalcitrant child hell bent on bullying the weaker children on the playground. Professor Jega also revealed the amount of pressure he must be under at this time because he ousted another PDP agent, Dr. Fadele for breaching protocols by lying to his (Jega's) personal assistant just yesterday and trying to pass some documents illegally across to Professor Jega.
It goes to show the level of rot and stench stemming from corruption in our country. I hope that truly Buhari will make a huge and positive difference if he is declared the winner and takes over the affairs of Nigeria.
