This registration is another fraud of our

We at the NigerianNews
have endeavoured to stay out of the political fray in
this coming April election, and we hope pointing out an obvious lie
cannot be ascribed to politics. These are what are known:
Jega said at the end of the registration process that
60+ were registered
Jega said there were fraud even involving highly
placed men registering multiply
That if a centralized vetting software were used the
figure anywhere in the world always go down becuase of double,
Niger State with a population of
3,950,249 registered above 1,580,100 knowing that
people below 60% of our 2006 population cannot register!
One political leader asked us to beware of what is happening in North
Africa, but we are bold to say, as the rest of us watch the world
laughing at us for not able to get our mathematics right and count in
a non-fraudulent way, Nigeria's revolution when it comes will not be
With no prejudice to Niger State, we know that 60% of Nigerians are
below the age of voters registration, adjusting for the growth
since 2006, we would have not expected the total voters registration
to be above 2,000,000, but it did.
We have chosen Niger State because it was one of those States that
submitted their results after the close of voters' registration. Niger
pre-vetted count was less than 1million. The
rest of the States, either they submit late or not should have been vetted
We opine that the use of AFIS software on regional/state basis lent
itself to fraud. AFIS software should have been a centralized event in
which vetting is state-blind.
Periscoping from abroad, no amount of re-branding can stop all other
nations from laughing at us, knowing in Nigeria, 419 is a daily weapon by
both individual and government. Nigerians' words are not worth a
If you want to send money to Nigeria, neither Western Union nor
Monegram will allow us to do it online, although some of the countries
in ECOWAS can freely send money to their countries online. Nigerians
both at home and abroad are considered fraudulent any way you go. One
wonders whether our leaders ponder about this.
Our leaders' thinking may defy statistical processes, however, our
voters' registration is now added as our accumulating frauds by
others, and the whole of the Atlantic ocean may not ever be able to
wash us clean!
Having said as much as we have, and the fact that Jega is known as a man
of impeccable integrity, how can this integrity be sustained with
the whole world laughing at us when the registration jumped from 60+
to 73+ millions?.
Professor Jega has lost part of his integrity which he must now start
immediately to rebuild. The starting point must be a centralized
vetting system that is able to see the evil of the registration perpetrated
from all registering branches. This figure ought to be NO more than
60+million or a little less. The 800,000 multiple count figure
threw out by INEC is a voodoo and bogus concoction lazed in Azenic,
and prepares us for toxic possibility of violence when everyone has
If Jega fails to re-appraise and remedy this malady, he will forever
