Can’t confirm how authentic this is but its right now trending on twitter. The story says that the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has issued an order that no English. Premier League match should be broadcast on Saturday, 11th April, 2015.
INEC Chairman, Prof Jega issued this directive with respect to the Gubernatorial elections coming up tomorrow saying Nigeria cannot afford to joke with the Gubernatorial elections and having EPL matches being aired on Nigerian TV would mean a lot of the Nigerian youths will not vote.
Jega in his statement said all youths should please go out en masse and exercise their rights to vote so as to void passing blame after the elections which he categorically described as “Medicine after Death”.
The youths of Nigeria however are not happy with this new development and have therefore decided to boycott tomorrow’s election if Jega still stands by his instruction.
