#NigeriaDecides: Sensing defeat, PDP moves to frustrate announcement of presidential results

Officials of Nigeria’s ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Tuesday moved to frustrate the further announcement of presidential results.

The electoral agency, INEC, in Abuja had Monday released the results of 19 states which showed the candidate of the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, leading by over 2 million votes. Results that have also been announced by state INEC officials in other states, yet to be announced in Abuja, also show the opposition candidate set to emerge as the elected president.

However, as the announcement of results was to continue at the International Conference Centre in Abuja on Tuesday, PDP officials stampeded the process accusing Mr. Jega of bias. For several minutes, they prevented the further announcement of results alleging among others, that Attahiru Jega, the INEC boss, refused to collect a petition they sent about the elections; and that he also gave unverified results to the APC.

“Jega is not supposed to be bias. Jega is not suppose to be tribal,” former minister Godsday Orubebe who was among the protesters shouted.

He said the Mr. Jega commissioned a fact finding team on reports of malpractices from Rivers State but has not acted on the Peoples Democratic Party complaints on results from Kano, Katsina, Kaduna and Gombe, which were won by the opposition.
He was unyielding as Mr. Jega and other INEC officials appealed to him to allow the collation to go on.

He said the collation would not continue except Mr. Jega leaves the venue for his office to “address PDP complaints.”

    The result of this election must be announced! This no be June 12 ….. bloody rogues !

    • redeeem

      Yes APC people were not sore losers when they protested against the victory of buruji–in ogun state

      • Okikiola Beckley

        They protested like civilized human beings.

      • tundemash

        You don chnage from burning-spear …. once President-Elect Buhari is announced today, we will start the repatriation of your drug boss Busuriji to United States May 30th.

    • Rildwan Ibrahim

      yes o GOD HIS control

  • Kelechi

    Shameless PDPig criminals. They are troubled because their criminal reign is over. This is the idiotic kick of a dying horse and won’t prevent the death of these criminals. Orubebe is a criminal that stole the money for Niger Delta Ministry. He is here protesting that the reign of thieves where he flowered is about to be brought to an end. Shame of you PDPigs!

  • Mr Igbo Sanity

    Ahhh Pdp opposition should go to court like Buhari did 4 times since 2000

  • fanfinc

    PDP you people are opposition now what ever case is better you people should go to court because Nigerians have been waiting for this long ago i reserve my comment

  • redeeem

    yes he is right–jega was quick to set up a panel to investigate that of rivers state but refused to do same for his tribes men in the fulani north who used under aged kids to vote for buhari—why did jega not tell amaechi to go to court—-?

    • ceecee

      I hope to see you and Jonathan on the street protesting the announced results just like Chimaroke yesterday. Nigeria of your dream is not what the majority wants. Can you understand that?

    • motsa jiki

      Jonathan got votes from the Fulani north .You people only know how to insult others

  • Dan Arewa

    This reminds me of Admiral Murtala Nyako’s ‘LAST KICK OF A DYING HORSE’ comment.

  • Dan Arewa

    I am just waiting for the final whistle.

  • Olutola

    Orubebe is a thug!

    • Tunsj

      Master thug indeed.

    • bib

      Well an almajiri tamed him.

  • Layo

    Orubebe is a disgrace to himself and his generation, he should protest in a civilized manner, not the thuggery and market woman display he just portrayed. Sad.

    • band olu

      Jega handled d situation very well, he put d thug in his place in a very mature way… shame on PDP…

  • Okey

    No, that is wrong, absolutely wrong. Even though I consider Jega’s refusal yesterday to accept the Rivers State vote, Orubebe’s manifestation before the INEC Chairman today is totally objectionable. And I denounce it.

  • Ahmad

    Typical of an average Niger Deltan. Crops of GEJ’s cabal

  • Chris1408

    Why was this untamed thug not arrested?

  • excel

    Another National Disgrace from jonathan and is cohort, a show of shame. This shows that pdp has lose this. Sai Buhari

  • bib

    What do you expect from a people that are losing a hen that is laying the golden egg? It was during Orubebe’s time at NDDC that it’s headquarters was fumigated with N1billion in one year.

  • band olu

    APC protested & complained about d election in rivers state before & during d election & before d results were released….PDP complained about d election in kano state after d result was released…for PDP not to complain before & during d election in kano shows that d election in kano was peaceful & credible….

  • Esther Vikthur

    I suspect that Orubebe has finished spending his loot from the ministry of Niger delta, probably took a huge loan from a bank and promised to pay back after may 29th e yaaahhhh, pls tell him to develop high blood pressure and die so that the bank will not disturb him again because GEJ is not ready to share his loot with any body – it is now to your tent oh Isreal

    • Guguru

      LOL.

  • Esther Vikthur

    When GEJ won election in 2011, Jega was a good man with integrity and credibility, now that Nigerians have decided otherwise, Jega sudden lost all the integrity and credibility he had for four years – pls go back to Tunde Bakare’s prophecy of 2003, even Obasanjo fought that prophecy

    • burning spear

      HAS BUHARI GOT THE NATIONAL SPREAD–YET—–THE 25 PERCENT IN ALL THE STATES

      • Philex

        Sorry.

    • donkesson

      this to tell the pastors we have prophecy come true. not like those self acclaimed pastor and prophet who worship money. fake prophet shld be advice gej than decivein him

  • Sanmi Falae

    So these animals hold entire Nigeria, Africa, and the world to ransom for and in the name of Jonathan Goodluck?

  • rawdah

    Wot a disgrace. My God, for a former minister to hv behaved in such a manner, though why am I
    suprised? Is a reflection of GEJ’ s govt. Good riddance to bad rubbish, in sha Allah.

  • burning spear

    GOD BLESS ORUBEBE–FOR HIM JEGA WOULD NEVER HAVE ACCEPTED THAT OF RIVERS STATE———————HIS WAS TO MANIPULATE THE ELECTIONS FOR BUHARI ATI———–TINUBU

    • yahayaomaye

      Burning in fire, Im surprised you still have not seen the handwriting on the wall. Orubebe is disgrace to his children. His action was like animal – cow refusing to be controlled. Prof Jega really educated him on how to behave and no right thinking human being would support animal orubebe’s action.

      • Guguru

        LOL. I love that name—burning in fire.

    • donkesson

      this guy lack sence of reasoning he is always backward .

  • Philex

    For people like Orubebe, it must be real hard to contemplate life outside the corridor of power where you do as you please with our money; where you have a puppet president who allows you to rule by proxy; where you do as you wish and do not give a damn because you have a president who does not give a damn. It must be tough imagining a different kind of life from this one, and so we must a sympathise with the young man. How else can one explain this lunacy? All I can say to the ‘elder’ is to please accept our sympathy.

  • Chibuzor

    Orubebe is a common thief with his wife. The stole huge amount of money from Niger Delta ministry and Niger Delta Commission. He spent so much to become PDP Guber candidate for Delta state but God failed him. He once boasted to be the closest person to GEJ and God relegated him to the last position.

  • SAM .A

    Orubebe is having a melt down a kind of mental break down, where was he when the same Jega declared Jonathan the winner in 2011. He has benefited immensely from Jega’s unbiased & non tribal but professional act.
    Orubebe go home and leak ur wound, arrange to get to Aro Abeokuta for mental help.
    Time to mourn, weep as much as u can gnash your teeth from now .
    You can’t resort to tantrum,& disgrace yourselves in the open.fqwqx

  • absam777

    Orubebe forgot the advice of his godfather Edwin Clark. Now he is a tribal disgrace to the SS people, since he shouted tribalist against Jega. He will leave to regret this day. – CNN, YOUTUBE, BBC etc. – all over the world, people watched him behave like a mad man.

    • donkesson

      a really madman if not why will interupt our Democratic process .anyway what abt madam she is not even sayin anything.

  • ola

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm the man surprise me ooooooooo,a minister for that matter

  • Red Lion

    I DID NOT EXPECT ANYTHING GOOD FROM SUCH CRIMINAL RESPONSIBLE FOR 1ST OCT BOMB BLAST

  • Trueism

    “Orubebeism”: to display completely idiotic behaviour unbecoming of statesman and be reduced to a human fraction on a public and global stage

  • sammyctu ode

    Please if any Nigerian go to warri, go and see the road leading to orubebe’s house. The road is so bad that it can sink a car yet this is the man who wants to be governor of delta state. Delta state has been ruled by criminal and corrupt leaders like orubebe who are thugs, illiterates and criminals who became prominent under jonathan and have stolen us blind. I am not surprised orubebe behaved like this in front of a global audience because a thug and criminal can never change his ways.
