  3. Since Edo people have chosen the destiny be fitted of them, no one has any course to complain or pity them...With #2000 and fried Akara, they have put themselves under another round of servitude, slavery, maladministration, hunger and poverty...Well,as events are unfolding...

    1. Yes NANADBOY, this is the change Edo people need. And its a good one. Get it into your head that PDP spells doom for every Ward, Local Government, State,and Nigeria in general. We have had enough and would not want to continue with that party. Enough of these drama from PDP. A party that is presided over by a Boko Haram Leader.

  7. Systematic rigging, INEC under Mahmoud with Amina Zakari will continue to at act the scripts of APC, our electoral system can only but get worst under this present INEC leadership. The method they used in Imo Senatorial election is what they used in Edo State and that is what they plan to use in Rivers State but for the fear of millitants, they placed it on hold. This country is going down every day and will continue untill they allow the will of the masses to prevail.

    1. Anonymous 8:14pm, your comment get as I be. So Na because APC Don win this one, Na im make you dey talk like this? Besides, has there ever been a credible election in this country? Under Goodluck Jonathan, was it better? Please eschew bias from your head, what happened in Edo is far better than all the elections conducted under any PDP government. Its as simple as that. Please be a good sports man.

  9. The Fulanized INEC has once again played their evil hand to deny a man whom the people voted for , his victory. Edo are not stupid and so couldn't have chosen the evil party that has messed up Nigeria to rule over them. When the collation and announcement of results was abruptly postponed, I suspected that a Fulani man has called from Abuja and the result would change. It is time for the people to demand for the authentic result of the election. They cannot allow themselves to be ruled indirectly from the caliphate for another four years.

  13. Is it not too early to cry wolf even when we know they are all the same? Heard someone promised birth bash for someone if he won. If that is true then don't blame the ppl if the result is a true representation if the election.
