Abuja Lawyers Lauds Nigeria's Elections and the Security


Lawyers in Abuja have lauded the conduct of the March 28 general elections in the country by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the security agencies.
Speaking with Daily Trust yesterday president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Austin Alegeh (SAN) said the election is a sign that Nigeria could become a better country. He also gave a pass mark to the security agencies, saying they have performed satisfactorily.
"For us they have all worked very well but nobody is perfect. For example the security agencies arrived at venues before INEC. In all we are satisfied that the elections are basically free and fair.
"No doubt there have been incidents of violence, and card reader failure was a major challenge. But INEC rose up to the challenge and took steps to address the issues. We believe what have been done could have been done better, but it is better than what it used to be," he said.
Also speaking, Chris Uche (SAN) described the election as an improvement on past exercises.
"We thank God there have not been violence as expected. Apart from the initial hitches, things are moving okay. And I think it was good for INEC to have extended the voting to the next day," he said.
On the performance of security agencies, he said though he has not gone round the country, but from what he had observed, they have performed "creditably well." Continue HERE

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.
