E No Make Sense

Someone please help me to make sense of this.

When a patient dies, the Doctor could be liable for the death if she was found to be negligent in performance of her duties. The Doctor could go to jail and lose her license/practice.

A Teacher can lose his job when his students fail in their exams and he is found to be negligent. Even for an offence like groping a student or even selling handouts.

A Lawyer can be disbarred and lose his practice for conducts adjudged to be unprofessional.

Managers get fired everyday for performing below par or failing to meet agreed objectives.

Even sports people lose their places in the team or their positions and rankings due to a drop in performance. Clubs get relegated. Champions have their belts withdrawn.

But what happens when INEC messes up the elections in a whole state?

Simple.

Give Iwu another 3 Billion Naira to organize 'fresh' elections!

Who is responsible for elections in Nigeria?

You mean you can decide to waste billions of Naira in organizing an election, run the elections like no man business and if anybody complains, tell them to go to court. If the courts nullify the elections and order a rerun, you simply present a fresh bill of quantities to the Treasury. Just like that.

I think there should be a law that if the results of an election is canceled even in an LG Ward, whoever was in charge should be summarily dismissed from whatever service without benefits. (Most INEC officials are career public servants on secondment.)And should be tried for sabotage.

Maybe the position of INEC Chairman should be rotated among the states, with each state guaranteeing its candidate to do a good job. In event of failure, the state will pay back to the nation the total amount expended on the election or the part considered flawed. Since the money is from deductions, each state has the option to sue the INEC Chairman.

From the Polling Station Officer to the INEC Chairman, each of them is liable for what happens in his area of jurisdiction/authority. Enough jail terms, without options of fines should be prescribed.

Maybe they will take elections more seriously. Maybe they will take the lives of Nigerians more seriously.

Maybe we should even privatize elections organization in Nigeria. Let companies bid for it and hold them according to agreed objectives and with specific milestones/performance indices. Failing which they dont get paid.

What happened in Kogi state this past weekend and will repeat itself in Adamawa and most likely Edo state too is a travesty of justice. The people just went to the polls again and elected Idris again. But who removed Audu's name from the ballot in the first place? Why? The buck must stop at someone's table. He must at least tell the nation why he did what he did.

Who is responsible? Why was nobody punished?

Well, somebody was punished, the people of Kogi state. Nigerians all.

Today's ranting said...

Naija sha with this election thingy ehn.election tribunal today, election nulification tomorrow and election re-run the next day. Haba isn't it so pathetic that we are still talking about elections after how many months ago a national election took place? Well i can't forsee a re- run in edo state cause Oshiomole won outright.

I totali feel ur frustration...Itz really bloody annoying the way INEC handled this whole election.. in fact.. d way the government handled it!!
Loved the way u dropped the INEC bomb tho! Lolz!

Nine said...

Don't blame INEC.That's sorta like kicking a dog because it was peeing in your yard:it's what they do.Blame the people who contracted them to repeat the same election.

Insanity:Repeating the same action in the same circumstance expecting to get a different result.Which does sum up this topic.

Nine said...

Harsh?Maybe.True?You judge.

oh God. I just dont want to think of it at all again. INEC?

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

It is suspicious that Iwu was not discharged from his position and some sort of reorganization did not happen at INEC given the obvious failures of last year's election. But, are we really surprised?

I know I'm not. Nice post NIMMO. Glad to know I am not the only blogger questioning the madness openly.

How ya pikin?

NIGERIAN CURIOSITY

NikkiSab said...

Bros make i send u panadol or ala bu kun? Na prayer nigeria de n hope for d best. First time here, will cruise by always.

Afrobabe said...

Things are just messed up...I for one wish we can have a president who concentrates on only one thing...

Maybe they should do it that way...during ur tenure concentrate on electricity till it is fully solved then the next president concentrates on monitoring that the electricity remains at that level or above while his main objective is roads.....

Imagine what we would achieve in 20 yrs

N.I.M.M.O said...

@Uzi: Abi?
@Solomonsydelle: Iwu not being arrested and jailed is what dont make sense in this whole saga. We are doing well. Many thanx.
@Nikki: We never pray enough? *Bell-o-blessing* for being your first time here. Many thanx for stopping by.
@Afro: I agree that a lack of focus is one of our problems here. maybe Afro's Formula would help o. If only they will try it. Many thanx.

guerreiranigeriana said...

N.I.M.M.O said...

@GNaija: Really, I've never seen you write like this before. With so many f-words and such. This must really irk you and rightly so too. Come 2011, I will take you up on your offer to dance Ngolo at the campaigns o. LOL. Many thanx.
