    PDP has lost the battle. They should just take thier time to pack the load away from the government house.

    • Judeson Harry

      I want to let you know my opinion. I think from what I see Nigeria has changed. I don’t think Nigeria should waste money again doing elections. Nigeria has completely changed. Nigeria is very good. An election can spoil the country. Nigerians should consider cancelling further elections after this one and enjoy their changed country. What do you need election for in a changed country in the first place? Just stay the way you are and be merry. Keep the change. Money for election can go into savings. Nigeria has the best president president the world has ever seen. The country is booming. Trade and investment is at all time high. Production activity is taking place at full strength. Why have elections to spoil Nigeria’s golden age of incredible economic performance? It is a waste of money.

      • Ola Majekodunmi

        Judeson:

        Yes, that’s true! Nigerian journalists have their work cut out. Having been coaxed into this
        assignment they’ll have to force their thorough-going mis-belief on the rest of the populace
        that Nigeria has been in ideal heavens since 29th of May. To achieve that, the journalists must
        reject all dissent. Anyone who wants to publish dissenting opinion will now have to look for space
        in either The Economist newspaper of London or in America’s New York Times. That’s the new truth.
        Because Nigeria has come to the end of its civilization which, to be quite frank, hardly ever got started.

          My own prayer is that APC should win the governorship in all the 36 states
          and win all the seats in the House of Assembly of all the 36 states, and, win
          all the seats in the Senate and the House of Representatives. That is the
          only way Nigeria can develop to be great, like America. All Nigerians who
          want Nigeria to look like America in a hurry must vote for APC everywhere.
          We can all see how APC states like Edo and Imo already look like America.

Is it by force-to impose a candidate on us just as the USA imposed Buhari on Nigerians?—————-The Yorubas and Fulanis cannot plant or clone their regional will on the people of the Niger delta—Cause Ijaws never went to Katsina or Osun state impose their wish on these ethnic groups–Tribalism abi? Yes it was tribalism that made Buhari order Fulanis to stone Jonathan in the North———–It was the same tribalism that led Buhari and IBB refuse to appear befor an Ibo Judge –late Justice Oputa-It was tribalism that made the Fulanis beat Akpos the former NIMASA—–to pulp—The same tribalism that is making mumu Buhari to expose donation made by PDP–to the world—because it concersn an Ijaw-President–But not how much Amaechi donated to him-in APC———It was the same tribalism that made them want to prosecute Tompolo-That led to the seizure of All states Banks ati Crystal bank and Hotel————Let my people go now that a barrel of oil is being sold at 5 cent———-animals

  • IZON Redeemer

    Determined to make the federal government comply with court judgment on elections, the All Progressives Congress yesterday wrote a letter to President Goodluck Jonathan and the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Professor Attahiru Jega asking him to give heed to the judgment barring the involvement of soldiers in elections.

    The letter, dated February 16, 2015 emanated from the Director, Legal Services of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Chukwuma-Machukwu Ume (SAN)

    Though it was addressed to Jega, copies of the letter were also made available to President Jonathan, the National Security Adviser, the Chief of Defence Staff, the Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Naval Staff, Chief of Air Staff and the National Chairmen of the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party.

    APC in the letter called the attention of the federal government to a judgment delivered on January 29, 2015 by Justice R.M. Aikawa of the Federal High Court, Sokoto and another by the Court of Appeal, Abuja, on February 16, 2015 which overruled the use of military in elections. unquote Now nko are the hypocrites in APC not using soldiers to murder Ijaws in the creeks–with a view to justifying the drafting of soldiers of occupation to the Niger deltas again?

    Breaking News Premium Times exposed!

    INEC And APC Removes Original Results Sheets From Polling Units.

    **ready made Re-run election Results being send to local bloggers–and media (Houses such as Sharia Reporters ati Premium Times among others).

    The fraud that recorded in the Southern Ijaw Local Government area in the last governorship election in Bayelsa where that Votes allocated to APC was bigger than the number of registered voters and twice the number of people with PVC, will be a child’s play, as INEC officials have handed the original Form EC8A for the governorship election to the APC officials.—Thus perfecting plans as predicted by Nigerian Pastors for Buhari to rig the elections for SYLVA-

    While some of the 527 Polling units in the state are yet to start accreditation, majority of those that have started have no Result Sheets (Form EC8A), while some have photocopies, as their originals have been taken away by security agencies–know as the”New Buhari Gestapo.

    Southern Ijaw Local Government Area, according to earlier Reports by Hope For Nigeria, has a total of 120, 827 registered voters, 425 polling units and five voting points, while 38,000 voters are coming from polling units from Brass, Ekeremor, Nembe, Sagbama, Yenagoa and Ogbia LGAs.

    This implies that in the rerun election only 23% of the registered voters will be taking part in the election. According to Hope For Nigeria, with Governor Dickson under the watchful eyes of former President Jonathan, have a clear lead of nothing less than 40,000 from the 77% of the voters that have already voted, it is therefore impossible for Chief Sylva to over come this margin. But with the deperation in Buhari to capture Bayelsa state by hook or crook-your guess as good as mine

    As at this morning there were reports of ready made Re-run election Result sheets being sent to local bloggers. They will start posting them immediately the voting starts here on Premium Times——–Hence the haste in confining their thoughts to the re-run in Bayelsa state. What a shame

    • Burbank

      LOLz…try again.

  • #OccupyNigerDelta

    1. There is oil pollution and spillage everywhere in the Niger Delta.
    2. Contaminated water, air and even on the farm land.
    3. Every food grown is contaminated with cancer causing toxins from pollution
    4. Even the minute fish found several kilometers away from the sea shores are contaminated too
    5. Nobody is prosecuting the foreign oil companies and their officials.

    The people of the Niger Delta continue to be neglected. Their ecosystem is contaminated with morbid cancer causing toxins poured into our rivers by Nigeria’s oil exploration.

    The recent Transparency International report states that every Niger Deltan adult is not likely to live beyond 45yrs. Why? Because he will die of one cancer or the other. But the Nigerian govt is doing nothing to clean up the Niger Delta. Our rivers all have black sandy beaches with repulsive and choking smell from toxins. This is war against our people and the Nigerian govt does not care.

    #OccupyNigerDelta
    The time to act is now before it is too late. We (Niger Delta people) MUST take our own destiny into our hands and act. We should begin civil disobedience, #OccupyNigerDelta protests until the oil companies clean up our environment. As of today, almost EVERY household in the Niger Delta has at least one cancer victim and this is unacceptable—–With Buhari budgeting N104m for food and N89m to buy car tyres in 2016 alone while our people who produce the moneys have no clean water to drink, no electricity, no jobs and picknicable beaches, the only response is to REACT!—–Time to react is now. To delay will be dangerous. #OccupyNigerDelta…..NOW!

    • Adufo Addo

      Thank u 4d post. Looking at d pictures from the election report above, it is sad to see how the Niger Delta looks like. Are the inhabitants of these areas aware of how much they are worth? Do they know that their billions built cities like Abuja and lagos. I am not a Nigerian but I have no doubts whatsoever that these fellows deserve far much more. There is no oil rich nation in the world that looks like this. It is eyesore.

      • Burbank

      • .Onoriode Jasper

        -Nobody should blame the Niger delta if they decide to revolt. The neglect is just too much. Nothing to show for their wealth. Imagine Bayelsa that contributes more resources to Nigeria than any other state and more resources than all the 16 Northern states put together, is looking wretched as we see in those pictures while bridges are built every day in Abuja which does not even have a single river. Since 1960 there is only one bridge that has been built in Bayelsa and it was by Dickson. All the other 11 Northern presidents and 2 Presidents from the West did nothing. I support a revolution in the Niger Delta with all my heart. From Forcados to Patani to Olomoro to Bonny and Brass etc etc, it is all ecological disaster everywhere. This has got to stop.

        • a2ajayi_maxwell

          Who’s to blame? What did Mr Ijaw Jonathan do when he was 6 years in government? Why did they not revolt then for his neglect of his backyard. I guess, this the best time for them to do it, right?

        @wahala—-Mumu Ibo–man——–

        BIAFRA: IT’S A PLOT BY IGBO TO COLONISE SOUTH SOUTH – Alhaji Sagir Ringim

        Sir, I want to thank you for your concern about the welfare of the people of the South South by exposing the plans of the Igbos to recolonize the region. But I am worried about the sincerity of these your concerns. Because of these worries, let us dissect and carefully assess your statements of fear and concerns in four (4) segments, so as not to repeat the mistakes of 1964, 1966 and 1967-1970s till date. In your carefully written letter or chat with the Journalists as reported in the national dallies yesterday, you clearly stated that the Igbos want to;

        (1). SEIZE THE ECONOMIC PROSPECTS OF THE MINORITY ETHNIC NATIONALITY OF THE OIL RICH REGION.

        Alhaji Ringim, may I remind you that the economic prospects of the South South is currently being seized and controlled by your people of the Northern protectorate of Nigeria. Does that in anyway mean that you agree that your people have colonized my region? Are you also aware that even the oil wells in Abia State, Imo State and Anambra state and recently Enugu State (Igbo land) is being owned by your people in the Northern Protectorate? Are you aware that we in the oil rich region (South South) do not have control over our wealth, and its fortunes are determined by your people? Are you also aware that after sharing the proceeds of oil between your protégés in Shell, Mobil, Agip and Chevron, the left over is given to 44 local government of your state Kano, and only 8 Local government of Bayelsa? How more criminal could that be?

        Do you know that even when the Natural Gas from my State Akwa Ibom is used to generate power from my state owned Power Station, that the fraud of a constitution you fostered on my people does not allow me to use same electricity in my state or region, but I am forced to load it into the National grid that sends same power to your home in Kano State? Have you seen how the United Nigeria is enslaving me? Are you aware that the fraud of your constitution took away the economic prospects of my region by empowering only the Federal government to build roads that your people from the Northern protectorate never built in my state for over 40 years until the coming of our own Son Goodluck Jonathan, when he allowed state governments to tamper with Federal Roads, yet you were busy building all the so called federal roads in your region.

        That your fraud of a constitution imposed on us by you and your allies in the southwest took away the power from us to develop on the economic prospects of the region thereby taking away our rights to economic progress for over 50 years. And here you are sir getting worried of what the Igbos will do to my people. Sir, have you been ever worried about what your people have done to my people? How many of my people have you killed in your region? Please tell me the number of my people slaughtered by the Igbos in their land that is enough for me to be weary of them. Remember that these are my neighbors that lived peacefully with us for centuries, shared cultures, intermarried and even celebrated common cultural events before you came with your successful propagandas that deceived our fathers?

        (2). COLONISE THE SOUTH SOUTH, CAPTURE THE REGION, COLONISE THE OIL FIELD FOR BETTERMENT OF THE IGBOS.

        Alhaji Sagir Ringim may I remind you that the Igbos are not the colonist as you have insinuated here, but you and your people in the northern protectorate. They have so far not shown the threat to colonize as when compared to your people. It is your people that used the oil from our region to better the livelihood of your people and that of your few allies in the Southwest. It is you that is synonymous with the word “CAPTURE”. It is your people that kill non-indigenes in your region to take-over their property. Alhaji Sagir Ringim, just in case you think this generation is as vulnerable are our grandfathers and fathers you deceived by your propaganda. You were able to make them see the Igbos as their enemies in the 60s. Please note that this is the 21st century of 2016. By Chidinma

    A senior Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has told
    Pointblanknews that a directive from the Presidency this morning
    instructed the electoral body to return Mr. Timipre Sylva of the All
    Progressive Congress, APC, as Governor of Bayelsa State “at all cost.”

    The INEC source said Aniedi Aniekan, the Delta State Residence Electoral
    Commissioner, REC, an in-law to Mrs. Alayingi Sylva, wife of the APC
    Candidate, is the go-between in the planned return of Sylva as Bayelsa
    Governor.

    Sources informed that Aniekan has been dishing information and
    instructions to INEC officials currently in Bayelsa State on how to return
    Sylva as the winner of today’s elections.

    “I can confidently inform you that we have been directed to return Sylva
    by all means and at all cost. That is the instruction we got from Mr.
    Aniekan who is REC in Delta State,” the source told Pointblanknews

    According to the INEC source who would not want to be named, “Aniekan
    informed us the instruction came from the Presidency and that we should
    pass same to all PO’s involved in the election as no excuses will be
    entertained.”

    JONATHAN’S WORDS ON MARBLE:
    “My promise of free and fair election is clear”
    “All governorship elections that have been
    conducted so far, you can agree with me that
    they have been free and fair”
    “I am from the PDP, the ruling party, but I don’t
    use that strength to make sure that PDP must win by
    all means. PDP has lost elections in Edo State, we
    lost in Anambra State, we lost election in Ondo State,
    of course only two days back, we lost in Osun. But
    we know and we are saying that this country must
    change”
    “The kind of election we had in the 1960s that
    led to the crisis in the West that threatened the
    sovereignty of this country, cannot come up again”
    “The kind of elections we had during the Second
    Republic where some people won elections as
    governors and ran away from their states cannot
    come up again”
    “Nigerians must vote and our votes must count”
    “If I was interested in manipulating elections, my
    party would not be losing all these governorship
    elections”
    “All what we want is credible elections.”
    – President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan

      If Buhari wanted to rig the Bayelsa elections, Seriake would have lost massively by now.
      Sai Buhari.

  • GEJ WARN 9JAS B4

    Seriake Dickson, governor of Bayelsa state, was in tears after learning of the death of 14 people during Saturday’s supplementary governorship election, his media aide, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, has said. According to Iworiso-Markson, Dickson condemned in strong terms, the “electoral malpractice and violence which marred the supplementary elections in Brass, Nembe, Ekeremor town and parts of Southern Ijaw local government area”. He quoted Dickson as accusing the All Progressives Congress (APC) of masterminding the killings of innocent Bayelsans in Brass, Ekeremor, Nembe and Sothern Ijaw and wondered why the APC would kill to capture power. “While reiterating his earlier stance that the APC was not ready for one-man one-vote, the governor said the violence has also vindicated him on his earlier position that the security agencies particularly, the Nigeria military, are partisan and not willing to protect the enabling environment for a free and fair election to take place,” read Iworiso-Markson’s statement. “The governor also accused the security agencies of providing cover for the APC to perpetrate violence and rig the elections in the state. To achieve their sinister plot, APC militants hijacked election materials and wrote results in many wards of Southern Ijaw, Brass, Ekeremor town, Brass while elections were disrupted in parts of Yenagoa and in a polling unit in Otokpoti, Ogbia Local Government.

      Did Buhari, Buratai or Arase rigged the Bayelsa election yesterday in favour of the PDP?

  • Isi Agwo

    Everything appears quiet in Apes C’s media wing (Propaganda Times, Sharia Reporters and others), an indication that Bayelsa State has rejected Apes C’s “Change” poison.

      Congrats to PDP for Bayelsa.
