I will voice my own opinion on Amadi's

BACKGROUND: In 2003 the SSS stormed my BA flight leaving MMA Airport for the UK. Came to my seat and removed me on the directive of Lateef Kayode Are a retired Nigerian Army Colonel who was Director General of the Nigerian secret police. I was taken to Abuja by road that night.
On getting to Abuja I was kept in one of the SSS HQ I was blindfolded and then driven to one of the many SSS detention centre in the middle of no where. Kept incommunicado. 15 days into my detention I met with Kayode Are who wanted some sort of 'Agreement' as instructed by OBJ

As we approach the landmark 2019 election which will confirm if the new power elite in Govt will be willing to surrender power again, the role of @inecnigeria must henceforth be under continuous scrutiny and this righteous task is one on which patriots shouldn’t be deterred.
Democrats take it for granted that politicians are desperate in their quest to fulfil ambition by taking power, hence, the importance of an imperial arbiter.

If politicians in Nigeria are devious or desperate, why would Democracy need @inecnigeria?
The #OsunRerun and #OsunDecides elections have continued to haunt @inecnigeria, so much so that up till this moment as I tweet, INEC is still embarrassed to tweet the official results of the election as it always did in the past.

Yet we should believe they mean well for Nigeria?

There was cheery news that regulators had seen the error of their ways regarding indiscriminate use of iron fist tactics.

This step forward was blunted by events such as leap backwards in Osun, a problematic strike action, and a return to bad old habits by a bus company.
On 25 September, @cenbank governor, Godwin Emefiele, said that he was optimistic the regulator would resolve the dispute in a way that will ensure that “everybody will be happy.”

We think this is a belated attempt at reassuring waning investor sentiment towards the country.
A day earlier, @SBGroup, one of four banks @cenbank alleged helped @MTNNG illegally repatriate $8.1 billion, said the regulator may review a decision to penalise its West African unit.

Thought to do a quick video for everyone who followed the process on #OsunDecides2018 and #OsunRerun and whatever other contraption INEC decides to come up with again after this.

It is important that our heads remain held high - we did not lose to APC only but a combined might.
“There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere and many of us will have to walk through the valley of the shadow of death again and again until we get to the mountaintop of our dreams.”

- Nelson Mandela.

#OsunDecided but INEC decided to do #OsunRerun and it is ANOTHER CHALLENGE!
(Couldn’t post this concluding part before now due to network issues.)

It’s a big “Thank You” from ALL OF US to ALL OF YOU - we did what we had to do, you did what you did not have to do, but you did it all the same.

It is Power to the People - and you are ‘The People’.
