      I honestly would have loved pdp to win too, but the credibility of the election cant be really determined by the number of protests. The winning margin was very slim, so suffice it to say that there wld have been protests if even pdp won.
      Also you have to understand that pdp bastardized that state in ages past, and the major reason reason am guessing why they even garnered as much votes is cos the APC change mantra hasnt really delivered the economy out of the woods… Yes the wilderness is horrible, but going back to Egypt dikwa risky..

    pdp equally won in real life but it was RIGGED the people of oredo and other LGAs are screaming falsification but the corpse and the monkey’s people are bent on lying to themselves. just think am, why would edo turn out en masse to vote for oshiomhole’s candidate when he’s used his power to run edo down to level zero just like igbinedion,still owing workers up till today months of unpaid salaries as a matter of fact few died out of frustration and hunger while protesting on the streets. is it his party? or is it the well loved and efficient marks his party member is making in the federal level? wetin go convince you say dem dey talk true! predictable bunch of hypocrites PS rochas better be ready to fight his people and the entire igbo race and ddie cos WE THE PEOPLE will NOT and can NEVER Stand this apc fuckery
