Victory predictions for Buhari in 2019 election false – U.S. Institute

The United States Institute of Peace has denied predicting victory for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 General Election in Nigeria.

The Institute in a statement on its website on Tuesday captioned: “Correcting a Media Error: USIP Makes No Prediction on Nigerian Election”, stressed that the report by many Nigerian media that the Institute’s 20-page report on risk to a peaceful election in Nigeria, predicted victory for Buhari was false.

USIP therefore stressed that the reports were erroneous adding that the Institute was non-partosan and its only interest in elections was that of preventing violence not on the outcome.

“A few Nigerian newspapers reported erroneously this week that the U.S. Institute of Peace has made a prediction about the possible outcome of Nigeria’s 2019 presidential election.

“USIP never makes predictions about election outcomes and has not done so in this case. The Institute’s work on elections is confined to helping nations avoid electoral violence.

“The erroneous news accounts misrepresent USIP’s recent 20-page report on the risks to a peaceful 2019 election in Nigeria.
“This study is based on interviews across the country with more than 200 Nigerian respondents—election administrators, political party representatives, security officials, civil society and youth groups, the media, traditional and religious leaders, prominent community figures, business people, academics and others.

“The USIP report noted that, in the interviews, “some respondents” discussed their own views of Nigerian public perceptions about an election outcome.

“A Nigerian news account mis-reported this passage as a USIP prediction of the outcome, and other Nigerian news organizations repeated the error.

As USIP is a strictly nonpartisan institution, its work on elections focuses entirely on preventing violence. For more information on USIP’s work on peaceful elections and in Nigeria.

This clarification is very important because some people in Nigeria are hellbent on rigging that election and that is a recipe for violence.
We don't want violence after the results are announced.
Anyone who loses should "jejely" pack and go home so that Nigerians can pick up the pieces of their lives...
whatever is left of it.

Hehehehe...  :))

You know why I like this clarification?

It's damn annoying to read newspapers where anything and everything that have to do with facts are turned upside down just to support the stance of the writer or for monetary gain. Many news outlets have derailed from actually serving us undiluted facts, they print poison and cast blindfolds on the naive Nigerians.

Worse is the fact that many Nigerians don't "dig" for the truth, they hear something; they transmit it to others ASAP.

USIP, good move there.
