    “Anyone that tries to change the election results] is looking for Tunisia, Egypt and Yemen combined.”

    The man who said these words is a stooge in the hands of those working towards factionalizing Nigeria to achieve their ill-planned motives. Where are these prophets of doom coming from? There is no sense in reckless speeches and irrational conducts at this hour. Professor Jega is doing his best, and deserves support. You don’t issue threats to cause panic in a country; in as much as we all condemn vote rigging, we should still be mindful of issuing senseless threats. This man should go and found his own republic in his room or kitchen and turn it into Tunisia, Egypt and Yemen. Nigeria’s situation is quite different from those countries with their presidents serving decades (30 – 40 years), without democratic institutions. People should get facts, understand international relations, and media brain-wash before making condemnable comments.
