Postponement of elections avoidable – NSE

The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) yesterday said the postponement of the general elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was avoidable.

In a statement by its president, Adekunle Mokuolu, the NSE said it offered to give technical advice and render other ancillary services for free in a letter to INEC in December 27, 2018, but that the letter was not acknowledged.

“In our view, such collaborations, coming from a non-partisan and non-governmental professional organisation like NSE, would have sufficed to eliminate any incidences of logistics and operational plans failure. Logistics infrastructure can only be delivered by engineering. Unfortunately, that letter was never acknowledged.

“Assuming that the reasons of failure of logistics and operational plans adduced by the INEC Chairman are genuine, it is the view of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) that the rescheduling of elections is sad, avoidable, embarrassing and has occasioned an enormous waste of financial resources and monumental depletion of our National economy,” he said.

Mokuolu said a nation that “continues to neglect its domestic capabilities leaves itself open to all manners of interference such as the ones in the guise of expatriate advice from foreign election monitors.

“In moving forward therefore, we implore governments at all levels to take advantage of the expertise of Nigerian Engineers, and indeed, other indigenous professionals in the governance of our nation, to avoid the kind of embarrassment and wastages seen in the recent postponement of the February 16, 2019 election.”
