  • Drama-King

    The gap will open when results from strong holds of apc are announced. It was a keenly contested election election but the ruling party will remain in power.

      Please name the strongholds of APC… Your typr bragged that APC will defeat PDP by 75% and yet, the result so far released is showing that APC is struggling to match their boast to reality. Nigeria we hail thee

        Seriously? so, you are truly a PDP member? Ok!

      • Drama-King

        Now that the entire results have been released, can you still repeat what you wrote earlier?

  • realist

    Very interesting, that PDP is still as popular. When incumbent struggle as it is, indication that naturally without Nigeria factor and normal incumbent fraud, they must have lost. Sure remaining local governments now would definitely be in trouble of manipulation from the INEC that would surely want to please his financier and who put the chairman in position- APC.

    I will be a rare miracle for PDP, to win because the stealing tendencies of APC, are not hidden. If PDP, looses the election, they lost gallantly, while the thief winner APC won by fraud. The postponement was for APC to perfect their intention to rig. Even Satan stands in aware at the level of corruption by those who claim to be angels.
