    THE NIGERIAN FEDERAL ELECTIONS. THE LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION UNITED PROGRESSIVE GRAND ALLIANCE FLEW INTO LAGOS YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) TO DISCUSS NEW MOVES TO SOLVE THE CURRENT STALEMATE. DR OKPARA, WHO IS ALSO PREMIER OF THE EASTERN REGION, HAD TALKS WITH LOCAL GRAND ALLIANCE OFFICIALS. HE FLEW IN FORM ENUGU, THE REGIONAL CAPITAL.

    IT WAS DR OKPARA'S PARTY WHICH DEMANDED A BOYCOTT OF THE CONTROVERSIAL ELECTIONS. HE ALLEGED IRREGULARITIES, AND SAYS HIS PARTY WILL NOT ACCEPT ANDY GOVERNMENT BASED ON THE RESULT OF THE ELECTION.

    THE RULING NIGERIAN NATIONAL ALLIANCE WAS SWEPT BACK TO POWER WITH A CLEAR MAJORITY, BUT SO FAR NO MOVE HAS BEEN MADE TO FORM A NEW GOVERNMENT. MEANWHILE, NATIONAL ALLIANCE LEADERS ARE HOLDING THEIR OWN SEPARATE TALKS IN A BID TO REACH A COMPROMISE.
