  3. No one has congratulated the President for not rigging the election in favor of the ruling party unlike what was obtainable some few years ago. We are making progress in politics at least.

    1. Like in Osun, Edo and this same Anambra?. Idiot. GEJ's administration conducted elections in these states and the different parties won. GEJ did not rig elections for PDP

      Delete
    2. If GEJ did not rig elections, then Ekiti state where some serving governors were denied entrance a day or two from the election day is called what?
      Olodo, you can't rewrite history.

    3. What business do serving governors from other states have with govership election in another state?

  4. I am apolitical when it comes to Party Politics. I am happy to congratulate APGA for a stunning victory. I am happy that tha last toehold of Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu's legacy still remains loyal. Let APC not rejoice by beating PDP to third place. If APGA is removed all the votes will go to PDP. The party iOS nonexistent in the south east . We still remain 5 percenters.
