INEC declares Imo governorship election inconclusive

The Independent National Electoral Commission has declared the governorship election in Imo state inconclusive.


okorocha_new


Due to the number of cancelled votes (144,715) in relation to the margin of win (79,529) by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Rochas Okorocha, the Returning Officer, Professor Ibidapo Obe, declared the election inconclusive.


He said a new date would be announced for a rerun election in the cancelled wards spread across several local government areas.


Mr. Okorocha was initially thought to have won the election after he garnered 385,671 votes compared to the 306,142 votes scored by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Emeka Ihedioha.


The APC candidate is ahead of Mr. Ihedioha by 79,529 votes, which is by far lower than the 144,715 votes cancelled by INEC as a result of irregularities in some wards.


INEC’s verdict on the Imo election is a repeat of what happened in 2011.


The commission had at the time declared the result inconclusive after cancelling results in some wards following irregularities detected in some wards.


Mr. Okorocha, who ran then on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, went on to win a rerun.


If Mr. Okorocha eventually wins the rerun, the APC would have succeeded in holding on to the only state it controls in Nigeria’s South-East geo-political zone.


Three of the remaining states (Enugu, Abia and Ebonyi) in the region are controlled by the PDP while one (Anambra) has remained firmly in the grip of the All Progressives Grand Alliance for more than nine years.

President-Elect Buhari Speaks, Slams Iweala And Will Force Ministers to Declare Assets

President-Elect Buhari firmly stated that “all those that were governors, ministers, permanent secretaries, head of foreign staff and all those with political appointments will have to declare their assets on the assumption of their appointment and definitely with the courts.

And once they leave they have to re-declare their assets.” He said this would ensure greater accountability among public servants.


President-Elect Buhari spoke exclusively with SaharaTV on how he plans to deal with corruption, the government’s finances, Boko Haram, and Nigeria’s economy. Most notably he blamed Minister Iweala for the financial situation in Nigeria, and that he will make his Ministerial appointees declare their assets to the public.


When asked about statements from Minister of Finance Iweala on the fiscal conditions and government spending in Nigeria, President-Elect Buhari told SaharaTV that “I’m afraid the Finance Minister has no cause to complain because the governors cannot force the central government to act outside the Constitution.”


President-Elect Buhari firmly stated that “all those that were governors, ministers, permanent secretaries, head of foreign staff and all those with political appointments will have to declare their assets on the assumption of their appointment and definitely with the courts. And once they leave they have to re-declare their assets.” He said this would ensure greater accountability among public servants.


However, he did tell SaharaTV that he does not plan to interfere with the judiciary and whatever action it may take pursuing corrupt public officials. He stated that his administration would not “become embroiled in investigation every ministry, then the government will not have time to move forward.”


On the contentious issue of Oil Block ownership in Nigeria, and an equitable distribution of the country’s wealth, he suggested that partisan politics in Nigeria is the cause of inequitability in the oil sector. President-Elect Buhari claimed that he wanted to professionalize the oil sector in Nigeria. He said that the “proliferation of oil fields to people who don’t even know what it is, is one of the messes partisan politics has brought.” Within the equitable distribution of wealth and job creation for youth, the President-Elect pointed to the APC manifesto calling for greater emphasis on mining and agriculture development.


When pressed on rumors that former president Obasanjo was exercising inordinate influence on Buhari’s administration he said, “I think that people have to accept the realities of Nigeria’s political development. General Olusegun Obasanjo is the only living Nigerian that led Nigeria for more than 11 years, so for anybody to think that General Obasanjo is irrelevant or he was trying to push his influence over issues, I think is being uncharitable and not being fair to Nigeria’s political development.”


President-Elect Buhari is now confronted with the challenge of appointing a ministerial and cabinet team, and he has stated publicly that PDP defectors should not expect to receive Minister appointments.

Akinwunmi Ambode wins Lagos gov poll, PDP rejects results

The Independent National Electoral Commission has announced the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate in Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, as the winner of the April 11 election while the Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, came second.


jimi_ambode2


However, the PDP has rejected the result on the ground of what it called “the controversial” circumstances within which the election was conducted.


Out of the 20 local government areas of Lagos, Ambode won 15 while Agbaje won five.


Figures by INEC showed that Ambode polled 811,994 votes while Agbaje got 659,788 votes, a difference of 152, 206 votes.


However, the Lagos State chapter of the PDP, in a statement by its Legal Adviser, Mr. Adeleke Adefala, on Sunday, said in areas where the APC won, card readers were manipulated.


The statement, which was addressed to the Resident Electoral Commissioner, read, “I, on behalf of our governorship candidate, the state assembly candidates and the Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State, write to bring to your attention the following issues for your immediate attention and resolution.


“Our candidates have brought to our attention that contrary to electoral rules and guidelines, the newly introduced card readers were not used in the following local governments: Epe, Babagry, Mushin, Ikorodu Eti Osa, Alimosho, Ikeja, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos Island and some parts of other local governments.


“This amounted to no proper accreditation of voters and a denouncement of the sanctity of the voting process. There were numerous complaints of front and uploading of the card readers with fictitious names before commencement of accreditation in areas where card readers were used such as Lagos Island, Ikorodu, Kosofe, Lagos Mainland and Badagry.


“We hereby demand the suspension of the collation and release of the results pending investigation into our complaints.”

3 feared killed as violence erupts in Ife

Three persons were reportedly killed in Ile Ife during a fight between supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress.

osun


Our correspondent gathered on Sunday that one person was killed in the fight, which erupted in the town on Saturday night after the collation of election results.


The fight, which reportedly raged through the night, was said to have continued on Sunday with gun booming in some areas in the town before security personnel could restore peace to the troubled areas.


A resident of the town, Adewale Idowu, told our correspondent that the hoodlums, loyal to the two parties, clashed in Gbodo, Ayetoro and Ita Akogun.


He stated that some unspecified number of persons were injured during the fight, which also left some houses and vehicles vandalised.


Idowu said, “I saw a corpse on the road after the fight had subsided. Everybody ran inside to avoid being caught in the cross fire. I hope the number of casualties is not more than that.”


Another resident, who pleaded not to be named, said that two persons were killed in Gbodo, adding that the two victims in the area were siblings but he could not give their identities.


An 80-year-old member of the PDP,  Pa Taiwo Ogundele, was killed in the Gbodo area during the continuous voter registration, which held in the state in 2014.


 The octogenarian was said to have been dragged out of his house at around 10.30pm at  night and his attackers killed him and dumped his body on a tomb at the back of his house.


Commissioner of Police in charge of election in Osun State, Mr. Valentine Ntomchukwu, could not be reached on his telephone as calls put across to him indicated he had either switched off the phone or out of coverage area.


Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in the state, Mr. Babawale Afolabi, when contacted, confirmed that one person was killed on Saturday night.

Adamawa PDP candidate, Nuhu Ribadu, concedes defeat, releases concession statement

With final result in the Adamawa state governorship election yet to be declared, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the election has conceded defeat.  Below is his concession address to the people of Adamawa state.
mallam_nuhu_ribadu


Mr. Ribadu, a globally respected anti-corruption activist, ran a difficult race with leading members of his own party covertly and openly sabotaging his effort to be governor.


Some of them, including ex-Senator Jonathan Zwingina, with whom he travelled round the state canvassing votes, abandoned him and defected to the All Progressives Congress few days to the election.


Mr. Ribadu was the presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria in the 2011 presidential election. He was the pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.


Read the speech below.


“My dear people of Adamawa State,


“I greet you in the best form of greetings.


“I had dreamt of coming back home to lead our dear state to greater strides after years of underdevelopment. I started this journey in August last year and successfully got the mandate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) to fly its flag for the April 11 gubernatorial election. I came into this race knowing fully well that political contests are two-way traffics – one either wins or loses. As a man of faith, I was also aware that leadership responsibility is a product of God’s anointment.


“In the course of this journey, I have seen genuine support and encouragement from the people of Adamawa state. Several individuals from Adamawa and beyond contributed generously to keep the campaign going and many others devoted their time, energy and intellect to see to the success of this project. I sincerely appreciate this belief in my person and my ambition.


“The support I got from my party’s leadership and individual members from President Goodluck Jonathan down to the party agents in our polling units was overwhelming and gratifying. The party leader in the state, Barrister Bala James Nggilari and the state party chairman, Chief Joel Madaki led their lieutenants in making this journey memorable.


“I came into this race with lofty dreams and clear vision for our dear state, but the voice of the majority has not given me this chance. I take this in good faith.


“I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the winner and pray that at the end of it all our dear state will witness the needed progress and development it so much desires.


“God bless Adamawa State


“God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria


“Nuhu Ribadu,


Yola”

INEC releases statement on State Elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission conducted Governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections across the country on Saturday, April 11, 2015.
inec

Governorship elections were held in 29 States of the Federation, while State Assembly elections were held in 36 states. No election took place in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).  A general assessment shows that the elections went very well across the country.

According to preliminary reports, 88.9 % of polling units opened for accreditation between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. across the country. Only 5.2 % were yet to open as of 1 pm. Also, 73 % of the polling units had commenced voting by 2.30 p.m.


The process of accreditation with Smart Card Readers was also successful in a majority of the polling units. Initial challenges were recorded in Edo and Abia states, but the technical teams deployed to support the states were able to resolve the issues in a timely manner.


Overall, many parts of the country remained relatively peaceful during the elections. Some states, however, recorded a significant number of violent incidents, the most affected being Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Ebonyi and Ondo States. INEC’s records show that there were 66 reports of violent incidents targeted at polling units, the Commission’s officials, voters and election materials. These were in Rivers State (16 incidents), Ondo (8), Cross River and Ebonyi (6 each), Akwa Ibom (5) Bayelsa (4), Lagos and Kaduna (3 each), Jigawa, Enugu, Ekiti and Osun (2 each), Katsina, Plateau, Kogi, Abia, Imo, Kano and Ogun (1 each). The Commission is investigating these incidents and will do everything within in its powers to bring culprits to justice.


INEC commends Nigerians for once again demonstrating their resolve and commitment to participate in the electoral process and by doing so, contributing to deepening democracy in our country.


The Commission calls on every citizen to maintain the peace as the results of the Governorship and State Assembly elections are being processed, and to accept the official outcomes. It would like to emphasize that winners can only emerge after collation of the official results and on the basis of the requirements prescribed by the legal framework. Any aggrieved persons or groups are encouraged to seek redress at the Tribunals.


INEC would also like to remind all stakeholders that the process is not yet completed and urges restraint in their comments, as we strive to bring this process to an orderly, peaceful and credible conclusion.


Signed:

The Independent National Electoral Commission

Results - as declared by INEC - from most local governments from 11 states.

Mass Beaching of Whales Triggers 'Unscientific' Earthquake Fears in Japan!

The mass beaching of more than 150 melon-headed whales on Japan’s shores has triggered fear of a repeat devastating earthquake that killed 19,000 people in 2011 in Japan.
whales


Despite a lack of scientific evidence linking the two events, a burst of online commentators have pointed to the appearance of around 50 melon-headed whales on Japan’s beaches six days before the monster quake, which released a towering tsunami and triggered a nuclear disaster.


To add to the fear, it was noted that more than 100 pilot whales died in a mass beaching on a remote New Zealand beach on February 20, 2011, two days before a large quake hit the country’s second-largest city Christchurch.


Japanese officials have however tried to calm fears, and have insisted there is no scientific data to prove the link.

"I have no fears of PDP defectors" - Buhari

Tending to newsmen in the wake of making his choice at his polling unit in Daura Katsina state yesterday April 11th, President-elect Gen Buhari is cited as saying by Tribune that PDP defectors ought not expect automatic appointment as ministers in his legislature.
buhari


“I have no fears of PDP defectors. The people who are defecting will only have influence in their constituencies. Since their constituencies are now controlled by the APC, their influence is, therefore, limited. I hope the people that are defecting will accept the fact that they are joining the people who succeeded. So, I don’t think they will just come and say they want to be ministers next month, simply because they were ministers before.” he said

China Ruins US Plans to Bring Venezuela to Its Knees

China is counterbalancing the US’ efforts to bring Venezuela to its knees: Beijing will lend Caracas around $10 billion while the country teeters on the brink of bankruptcy.
vene


While the United States is waging an “economic war” against Venezuela and its President Nicolas Maduro, China is likely to obliterate Washington’s plans to bring the Latin American nation to its knees; Beijing will lend Caracas around $10 billion in order to support the country’s economy.


On March 9, 2015, US President Obama issued an Executive Order declaring Venezuela “an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.”


The Venezuelan government has also come under pressure from its opposition, as protest rallies have been taking place in Caracas since last year.


Venezuela is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy, facing the threat of sovereign default. The fall in oil prices is adding fuel to the fire.



According to the Venezuelan president, Washington could be behind the slide in oil prices, claiming that the US is waging an economic war against Russia and Venezuela.Meanwhile Beijing considers the Latin American country exceptionally lucrative for its investment interests. China has already provided Venezuela with $45 billion in exchange for oil and fuel and it will lend Caracas two five-billion-dollar loans in coming months.


A half of the $10 billion will be provided as a part of a bilateral financial deal, and another $5 billion for the development of oil fields.


Venezuela and Cuba have not missed a chance to criticize US foreign policy toward Latin America during the 7th Summit of Americas on Friday.


Venezuela came to the summit with a petition signed by over 10 million people urging Washington to lift the latest sanctions imposed on the country’s government officials. The petition also calls upon the White House to revoke its Executive Order denouncing the Latin American country as a “national security threat”.





“President Obama has made the worst mistake of his six-year presidency in foreign policy towards Latin America,” Nicolas Maduro said in an official speech Thursday, claiming that Venezuela “isn’t [Washington’s] backyard anymore.”
