A socio-cultural-economic group from the ancient city of Benin has claimed responsibility for the postponement of the forthcoming elections earlier stated to hold on the 14th of February 2015.
According to the spokesperson of the Association in a press briefing earlier today, it was highly necessary to ensure their sacred annual Valentine’s day was not traded for anything else, not even Nigeria Presidential and National Assembly elections.
FNN gathered the communique issued at the end of their meeting on the 2nd of February, highlighted that since it wasn’t possible for the Valentine’s day to be shifted and they were not willing to lose all the cash, gifts and other Valentine related benefits, it was imperative for them to use every means at their disposal to push for postponment of the elections.
Although for some reasons she didn’t categorically state how this was achieved, she clearly hinted that some of their adequately informed “foot soldiers” visited Abuja to spend the weekend with some top politicians, public office holders and INEC officials to ensure their demands were met.
It is also worthy of note that in as much as the advance team to Abuja did a very good job, those of them at their Headquarters In Benin in the usual Benin girls manner had series of All night flights, meetings and incantations to ensure the Elections were shifted from Valentine’s day with enough room for late Valentine gifts to arrive due to the impromptu preparations of some of their business partners and customers.
In a related news the National association of Nigerian Boyfriends and Husbands have commended the Military for making us aware the Nation is not yet safe for us to go out to vote on the 14th, but needs six weeks to curb security issues in the Country, hence it is also not safe enough for us to go outing on Valentine’s day.
