    There is no way Jonathan can win in Ogun state, despite all the monetary inducements offered our people to vote for Jonathan and other candidates. In my town of Ijebu-Ode, PDP agents bribed hundreds of votes N5000 each, and in the 3 local councils in Remo, I learnt that as much as N7,000 was being offered to each voter, ready to vote for the umbrella. We thought we had passed this stage and that voters would be allowed to make their choices freely

  • That is how it’s always started e.g in America Romney vote was quickly announce by New Yorkers’ and on the final collation Obama had the highest vote and popular. Therefore, keep your finger cross the O’s states, ‘couse this is Nigeria and we will continue to pray God for peaceful election and God give us a good leaders not an agenda….
