      A sensible person with his right senses active will not need to be told that that fraud in rivers called election is rubbish,and you can still be writing nonsense like this!no problem,tribunal will soon start work.

    • Nne

      April 13, 2015 at 1:16 pm

      Wike cannot receive a call from Amaechi conceding defeat, because Amaechi wasn’t defeated. He has done 2 terms and it’s now over.

    • Blah blah

      April 13, 2015 at 3:20 pm

      What’s the meaning of kikikiki? I see it around a lot.

      Blah Blah – false laughter, quiet laughter, giggles…

    • Beeeee

      April 13, 2015 at 2:13 pm

      Abeg, where did I say Amaechi should call to concede defeat? I am sure its Peterside’s name that i put there.

      Its only Rivers State that the election was a fraud….kikikikiki…..When the election goes APC’s way, it was free and fair….when PDP wins “elections did not hold”

      Repost from Facebook:

      Even if Amaechi conducts the election by himself with Buhari as the Returning Officer and Dakuku as the REC, Wike will still win with a wide margin. No controversy, you know why? Because It was a revenge and protest election!

      @Beeeee pls tell them, Rivers people have spoken, its called PROTEST VOTE!!!, Bring on a thousand elections Wike will still win, note because he is loved, Ameachi worked against himself PERIOD., sorry Dakuku, ur were loved but the odds were against you.

      April 13, 2015 at 5:09 pm

      @Beeee, WORD! Amaechi could hv written his name in the sands of time wrt ND politics. BeCos, in all honesty, he started well. After two yrs in office, greed and ambition took the better of him. Like u rightly noted if Buhari + Amaechi + Tinubu man the polling booths Wike will win hands down. Amaechi is a joke in Rivers state. He whom the gods want to kill they first make mad. To think l stood in d sun in 2011 to vote for Amaechi. We all believed in him. You needed to hear even exparts talk about him back then. He was a breath of fresh air after the Odilli debacle. I am glad l stood in the sun again to vote his ass out. Dakuku + Amaechi = one and ten pence. Bloody dictator. He wanted to rehash the Tinubu rubbish in Rivers. Whosai!. Rivers people are not docile and we don’t tolerate bullshit. Let him go and be Seke to the Fed’ Govt’ and be dictating to them in Abuja. Bloody twat!

    • Hmmmm

      April 13, 2015 at 5:05 pm

      It was obviously all bribe by Jonathan. And the president/wife and Amaechi are enemies, and patience was seen campaigning in port harcourt not in bayelsa voting. It speaks volume. Dishing out dollars like no man’s business. Anyway, APC still won in most states.

    • chinny

      April 14, 2015 at 12:02 pm

      Like what states;sokoto,ogun,bauchi.dey can win in dose places.pdp won in all the oil producing states and dat is d real deal…..ok .bye

    • Hmmmm

      April 13, 2015 at 5:13 pm

      What about bella naija show all these PDP thugs when Buhari puts them in hot seat? We will see how far all these celebration will go.

    So WIKE, the thuggish and un-indicted criminal, won.
    Rivers State, its economy and is its people, are DEAD MEAT. The state is now a den of miscreants and thieves. Not a supporter of Amaechi but I feel sorry for you all for what’s to come next. Mark this day.
    Dumb fools.

    Amaechi did not act with wisdom. Wisdom is profitable to direct. He knew his candidate is Ijaw, yet he was all out calling for the cancellation of presidential election results in rivers state . Trying to create disaffection between the Ijaws in Rivers and their brothers in Bayelsa. Dakkuku sef follow. He didn’t know that that act will haunt him during governorship election. Or Amechi is it Wike’s people that will leave their son and vote Dakkuku when the Ijaw’s sef have been calling him a betrayer? The margin is crazyyyy. Even if them rig am, how do we explain this? This is indeed #RiversHasSpoken

    Amaechi, will cover his face in shame. Buhari needs to be careful with him as well, the man turns against anyone.

    That is the reason the soon to be ex first lady relocated to Rivers in the first place, i have lost at federal level and my stooge cannot now loose too. The reason she dissapeared in the first place from the scene so as to perfect the rigging tactics. At least she is now sure that the water from Rivers will also sail to Otuoke and touch her. Madam peepee, the wind of change will soon touch you. Watch out

    With the rate at which PDP is going down they will soon discover crude oil.

    Have no fear Wike will calm down, just the thought of who his current president is will bring out the best in him. (One of the reasons we voted Buhari)

  15. Royal Rhimes

    April 13, 2015 at 6:16 pm

    we are expecting APC to call for the cancellation of RIVERS election because they lose there.
    their usual slogan.

    April 13, 2015 at 7:04 pm

    When people say Rivers was rigged I just laugh.

    People who don’t know where Rivers is on Nigeria map?

    Let the pole be done in Pentagon White House Wike will win.

    Ameachi well, he is entitled to freedom of association but Rivers can’t join him in betraying Jonathan.

    If PDP looses all states certainly not Rivers and Bayelsa.

    Congrats all.

    I think the elections in River_ was fair eniugh. When will the soon to become ruling party concede defeat. PDP/APC are same difference to me. I am more than glad that GMB Won the presido eletns. Becos the dude will not spare even his mother when it comes to corrupt practices. Joe boy was abi is too sluggish and was never ready for d showdown on corruption. APC will be totally tnsformed with Buhari as pre_ident. Bye bye to dictstorship from Tinubu and Amaechi to rivers. The bottomline is that Nwike actually won peterside not becos of he is loved but just to spite Amaechi the don.

    Apc can win in every state but as long as they lost niger delta den dey’ve lost it because that is the Nigeria.before Jonathan we were talking about resource control for every state,I think we will continue it now.Godbless our nyesom.we are ready to give them heat….they should better start looking for a way to export their groundnut and cocoa.
