INEC Who Is Responsible

Gimbiya of PurpleSilver Book Club wrote this and I think we need to make sure someone is hold accountable and responsible.

Some states declared WORK-FREE day yesterday with possible economic losses running into billions (that is if they even bother to put figures to decisions of this nature).

Many Businesses, including BANKS, observed half-day work yesterday thereby sacrificing billions in the process…

Federal, State and Local Governments have deployed human and material resources and logistics (which would now probably have to be pulled back or resettled somehow against the rescheduled dates) at sums that will blow the mind…

Businesses (most especially media organisations) have also deployed resources at great sums that are most definitely unrecoverable…

Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people have, at great personal costs travelled locally and internationally to ensure we carry out this civic obligation…

Transactions, both local and international, were deliberately scheduled, arranged or structured to accommodate the dates earmarked for these elections (you can’t even begin to put numbers to likely cost of ANOTHER rescheduling!)…

At individual relationship level, only God alone knows what would happen to wedding dates (and other important occasions) that were fixed probably after taking into consideration the election dates…hall rentals already paid for, flight tickets booked, leave days approved etc…

And some remorseless and unapologetic people that had 3+years to prepare for a single assignment, just sat there around a table to tell a Nation of over 200million people that elections have been postponed…not weeks before…not even days before…BUT few HOURS before and in the dead of the NIGHT when responsible people have already slept with the rested assurance that the impending new day will offer another opportunity at resetting this Nation!!!

Why are we like this in this Nation? Why do we treat ourselves with no respect? Why are we so insensitive and inconsiderate?

The most painful and bitter reality is that nobody and I mean NOBODY, will be sanctioned for this. We will simply move on, shrug our shoulders and await the next brutal disappointment! Just the way we roll!
