Political monopoly and the dastardly treachery of IBB's June 12, lead to the hastily adoptation of the pedestrian and profoundly shallow zoning formula to pacify the South-West for the political perfidy of IBB's annulment of the only model election yet in Nigeria's history.     The zoning formula so adopted was a PDP contraption that would only work smoothly in an environment of massive electoral scam. The reprobate political Avatars who were at the helms of affair in the vote-thieving, vote-looting, vote-appropriating and vote-allocating syndicate advocated and glorified this anachronistic contraption because it assured them of their fascist and feudal overlord of the beleaguered people of Nigeria.     At its face value, the unorthodox zoning contraption seemed to be a practical panacea in the redistribution of power among suspicious ethno-centric jingoists who were the feudal lords of the various dominant ethnic serfdoms. Zoning had nothing to do with political morality, altruism or nobility of purpose. It was strictly and solely a function of preternatural lust for power among the ethno-centric political samurais.     Zoning, till date, remains a truce with mediocrity, incompetency, idiocy and the inanities of false cum spurious stability which functions under the absurd principle of infinite instability as a form of infinitesimal or hiatus stability. And this charade is achieved at the expense of true nation-building.     The Jonathan's presidential ascendancy is an act of God: a product of divine and biological intervention and irruption that made nonsense of the zoning formula and provides Nigeria with one last opportunity at fence mending and true nation building.     To this end, Nigerians must raise up with a deluge of legion voices in one united cacophony asking Mr. President Jonathan and his Vice president Sambo to continue the remedy of God by contesting the 2011 presidential election on a joint ticket. We cannot and must not allow political grandees and asinine political Hottentots cum Neanderthals stymie the divine progression of God as regard His intervention to save Nigeria from the precipice of political oblivion and perdition via the Jonathan's presidential ascendancy which He engineered to rescue His beloved people: the politically and economically abolished Nigerian electorate.     The reality of Jonathan's presidency is solely an act of God. Power belongs to God, and He distributes it as it pleases Him and in conformity with His grand designs. God loves Nigeria and has finally, in his infinite mercies and wisdom, demystified the arcane and satanically prejudiced opinion cum view of certain enemies of Nigeria that a minority man can't rule Nigeria and take her to the desired height of development and achievement.     Power belongs to God, and to Him alone, and so, though I may be base and vile; though I may be following the devil, I beg to only kiss the hem of the veil my God is shrouded in because I am His son, and I love him, and today, I experience His joy in Nigeria, a joy without which the world would not stand today.     Jonathan, God placed you on that throne so that you will be a blessing and good luck upon the enslaved people of Nigeria. Please fulfill God's plan of emancipating the abolished Nigerian electorate by contesting and conducting a free and fair elections come 2011. It happens in other climes, it can happen here.By Okah Ewah Edede 08063172003 (Executive Assistant to the President, South-South Youths Assembly)
