The Spiritual Director of the Cananland Adoration Counselling Centre, Nigeria, the Rev Fr Dr Magnus EBERE, SDV has called for the outright cancellation of the Presidential election held last Saturday, February 25. The Rev Fr Ebere said the call became necessary because of unprecedented flaws and irregularities that made the election fall short of expectations of not only Nigerians but international communities that monitored the elections.
The Rev Fr Magnus Ebere of E-Dey Work Adoration Centre who made the call in one of his daily morning devotions warned that the irregularities and non compliance of the Electoral Acts/Laws may make or mar the Country called Nigeria.
The outspoken Catholic Priest who said that he loves Nigeria adviced the Chairman of the INEC and his team not to do anything that will destroy the Country or plunge the nation into unprecedented chaos by their actions and inactions.
Fr Ebere noted that the Federal Government spent over three hundred billion Naira to prepare INEC for the procurement of the BVAS machines and other electoral electronic equipment needed for the transmission of Election results electronically and wondered why INEC chose to transmit the results manually even contrary to the election guidelines.
The Catholic Priest called on INEC to reschedule the Presidential Election on the 11th of March being the day for the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections adding before this date, all loopholes would have been plugged.
He appealed for calm maintaining that it’s not over until it is over.
