The Independent National Electoral Commission, , has reacted to complaints by Nigerians across the country over the non-appearance of ad hoc staff and officials at polling units as at 9 am.

Festus Okoye, Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee of INEC, said most polling units were yet to be set up for the because of vehicular movement of officials and ad hoc staff.

He, however, appealed to Nigerians to exercise patience as the situation is under control and would be resolved immediately from the situation room.

Okoye, speaking on Channels , said: “Most polling units not open is as a result of a vehicular movement which we are sorting out at the Situation Room. The instruction given to the supervisors and monitors is that all ad-hoc staff must be at their post at 7 am but because of the interest in this election, some arrived at 5 am.

“In few places in Lagos where polling units were not set up on time, they had challenges with voters giving way to them to set up. We are not happy about that because INEC made sure this was addressed before time.

“So long as the polling units open eventually, everybody is entitled to .

“We have close to 57000 voting points, definitely there would be hiccups but I assure that we are going to address these challenges soon. I also appeal to our people to please be entitled to their choice. Nobody is permitted to compel anyone to vote at polling units.”

Buhari has failed, cannot solve Nigeria’s problems – Soyinka blows hot

buhari has failed, cannot solve nigeria’s problems – soyinka blows hot Buhari has failed, cannot solve Nigeria’s problems – Soyinka blows hot Wole Soyinka 1024x576 1

Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, has insisted that the Muhammadu Buhari administration has failed.

According to him, the problems confronting were beyond Buhari.

Soyinka stated this while playing host to students who paid him a visit on his 85th birthday.

The literary icon made it clear that while state governments differ in success rates, “central government has failed”.

“The problems of this nation are beyond the solution that can be offered by this government, that’s the first admission; they have to stop thinking in partisan government

“There has always been a major problem with successive governments. It’s easier on the state level to say that a particular state is definitely doing better than another state. But the central government has failed, that’s my view in the main.

“There is a minimal level which any government which has been elected to power must achieve to be considered a true representative of the people.

“Look at what’s happening today with the cattle all over the place, that’s a security issue which should never have reached this level. That singular act has resulted in hundreds of people being killed, farms were taken over; it has wiped away a lot of the positive achievements of the government.

“They need to confront this nation as a habitation of human beings where very serious issues like economy, security, health, even threats of secession come up every day and convoke at the same time, a national conference, what I call an Indaba across all section which we will all meet and debate everything, including the economy of this nation,” Soyinka said.

yoruba group gives miyetti allah 72-hour ultimatum to fish out killers of pa fasoranti’s daughter Yoruba group gives Miyetti Allah 72-hour ultimatum to fish out killers of Pa Fasoranti’s daughter Fasoranti 1024x576

A Southwest group, Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association (YYSA), has expressed shock over the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of Afenifere Chairman, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, by persons suspected to be herdsmen in Ondo State.

In a statement signed by its National , Olalekan Hammed, the group gave the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) a three-day ultimatum to fish out the perpetrators of the nefarious act.

DAILY POST recalls that the murder of the daughter of the Pa Fasoranti‘s daughter was confirmed by Afenifere’s spokesman, Mr. Yinka Odumakin in a statement.

He said 58-year-old Mrs. Olakunrin was killed by persons suspected to be herdsmen while heading to Ore Junction from Akure, Ondo State, where she was attacked and shot by her attackers.

But the Ondo state police command refuted Odumakin’s claim, saying it was an armed robbery attack.

However, the YYSA said it will convene an emergency meeting on Saturday (today) to discuss next line of action after the ultimatum to MACBAN elapses.

The statement reads: “We receive the news of the sudden death of Mrs. Olakunrin with great shock.

“We want the federal government to order immediate investigation on the matter because the culprits should not go unpunished.

“We also give the so-called Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN), Ondo State chapter, three days to fish out the suspected killers of Mrs. Olakunrin.

“We are having an emergency meeting tomorrow (today) in Ibadan to discuss the next line of action.”

Mrs. Olakunrin is the second child of 94-year-old Fasoranti to die, the elder statesman having also lost a daughter, Bunmi, some years ago.
