    I don’t understand the “math” of this election. If we have 36 elected Governors and 2 were absent for the election and yet the result says 19 to 16 (35 in total). Question is, did one of the absentee vote in absential or what? Or should I assume that your reporting is/was wrong?

    This shows that Oga Presido is loosing ground of his numerous misdeeds and indecision. For a President too be fighting a Governor; where are they doing that in this present state of the world if not that the clueless president have an hidden agenda. Let see maybe he will use his power to turn the result that already been announced and concluded. Shameless people with blood thirsty minds. Nigerians are waiting for you people to do rubbish come 2015 not only Amaechi but the whole country will boo your government out of the govt. House.

    Akpabio n ‘his cohort should b ashamed that they ar fighting their party member.PDP has failed this country. The President planned 2 bring in Jonah Jang which is a weakling like him to prevent rival for his 2015 ambition. President Jonathan has failed in this. It’s time 4 an opposition come 2015. There is really need for an opposition if there must b change Nigeria using “Edo state as a case study”.

      We must learn to respect those who God has placed over us in positions of authority it is not for we to sit down at the comforts of our home, using the internet as a means of airing all the unscreened thoughts that comes to our minds, abusing those in authority is like abusing he (GOD) that has allowed them to be there, Goodluck is there b’cos God has ordained it to be so and is doing well if not the likes of those who think they could run him down. Becareful
