Atiku,Supreme Court, Utomi
This race is only getting more intersting. I am sure you all have heard and read the news by now of the Supreme court's judgment that Vice President Atiku Abubakar can run in the presidential election. Here is an article in the Washington Post. Wow!! I am surprised by this outcome and it seems to be applauded by everyone. I wish it was a different person entirely though so that votes can swing but the VP is no saint so his presence in the race now doesn't really make a difference.
Meanwhile the one candidate that I had hope in, Pat Utomi(even though we all know he doesn't have a chance) has dropped outof the race. See full article.
Speaking of presidential candidates, I was supposed to be in Katsina today interviewing Yar'adua but trust Nigerian politicians, their PA's and the press officers to dribble and change and cancel. Anyways I am sure that all my calling and bugging will irritate someone soon and things will happen. I can't wait for elections t be over so that I can do other things.
VA TECH SHOOTING
For those of you in Yanks watching the coverage n the shootings at VA tech, what is the deal. It's such a sad incident that was just so unneccessary. Unfortunately for us in Nigeria this will cause a lot of distraction from the elections in Nigeria. We really need the eyeballs of the world on this election and transition. Orwhat do you guys think?
