Women love a man in uniform! It’s a well known fact. There’s just something about a man in uniform women think is sexy, especially military men and firemen.

I don’t think Nigerian policemen or LASTMA would be considered as sexy men in uniform though! But I’ve seen military men in their full garb especially at ceremonial occasions and they look hot!

Yesterday (Feb. 26) the head of state Goodluck Jonathan donned military uniform as he visited Mubi & Baga, Northeastern towns that had recently been recovered from Boko Haram by the Nigerian Army.

After being criticized for many year for doing little to nothing about the Boko Haram menace, with a month to the elections GEJ is all of a sudden tackling the issue head on and asserting his role as commander-in-chief of the Nigerian armed forces.

I don’t think anyone is surprised by the news that the Nigerian elections MAY not hold on the rescheduled dates of March 28 (Presidential) and April 11 (Governorship).

According to the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Attahiru Jega, who appeared before Nigerian Senators yesterday (Feb. 18) to review the decision to postpone the Feb. 14 elections, he could not commit himself to the “sanctity” of the rescheduled dates.

The initial postponement was for security reasons…Boko Haram wahala in the North East. But it’s also interesting to note that under the Nigerian law, a further six-week extension of the elections is possible.

I believe him having his card torn was an indication he didn’t want to be a member of the party any more!
