Little Mercies ...

As gratitude and joy and faith conspired to overwhelm me with their combined warmth and glow yesterday, I sent this text message to tens of my friends and family yesterday:

"Fellow Nigerian, at this moment in our national life, let us take a moment and thank God for the gift he has given Nigeria in the form of our Supreme Court Justices ... Chude."

We thank God for these small, small mercies. Democracy, somehow somehow, is on course ...

(In case you don't know what I'm talking about - read today's papers on the Supreme Court judgement yesterday on Atiku's candidacy and INEC's powers to disqualify vis a vis the constitution)

I think INEC's role needs to be clarified, because as it stands now, all they do is print the ballots
