    Mumu man , I wonder how you sleep at night knowing that you had to spill the blood of the innocent to achieve your ambition. Why won’t INEC allocate results to you; voting took place in your compound .
    Nigeria is a joke.. INEC keep falling your hand since APC government …
    Politicians behaving like they own the air they breathe.

    APC= thug party. So the goal is to completely get rid of PDP, forcefully convert any other existing political party to joint their gang. So, they have more power, upper hand in the next election. This is foolishness and selfishness at it’s best.

    C-O-R-R-U-P-T-I-O-N is what the ruling party has inflicted on Rivers state and her people. All the good works of Jonathan on free and fair election are lost. A president presiding over this nonsense in Rivers state cannot but be the worst face of corruption. The buck stops on his table. Indeed it cannot but be so seeing he made sure his ‘sister’ is INEC Chair. Shame!!!!
