By SaharaReporters, New York

SaharaReporters has learnt that electoral materials are late in arriving to most parts Imo state where supplementary elections were ordered by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Reports from various citizen reporters in Imo state shows that most of the polling units in the four local governments are yet to receive election materials as 11:30 AM Nigerian time when voters accreditation ought to have ended.

INEC ordered   "Supplementary Elections" in the state after it declared the governorship elections in the state inconclusive on April 26 2011.
 

12: 00 PM-At Umuagwo village in Ohaji-Egbema local government area, the traditional ruler sent out the town crier threatening those not voting for Ikedi Ohakim, the PDP candidate not to venture out of their houses.

-Election materials arrives to some parts of Egbema local government area. Oguta is worst hit with logistical snag as INEC is yet to deliver election materials there.

12: 30 PM -No materials or INEC officials seen in any polling units in Ejemewuru in Awa ward up to the boundary of Rivers state in Oguta LGA. Matewrials were reportedly diverted to the home a house of representative member elected two weeks ago. Massive thumbprinting of ballot papers in progress.

1:30 PM- Report from  Ngor Okpala:
  1. Ward 11....no result sheets for guber, no stamps and no ballot papers for assembly in booths 6 and 9. Earlier two armed men were arrested with arms.  apga agents have been beaten and chased out of boots. People are being barred frm voting in the guber  by a large number of armed thugs. Voting in homes of key players speculated.   

2. Ward 5..our 7 apga agents were pulled out of there boots and taken away by tne police for no reason on the instruction of former chairman of local government Emma Nworgu leaving the boots unprotected. This is one of the areas to watch.

3. Ward 4. The LGA Chairman for Ngor Okpala Enyinnia Onuegbu was caught thumbprinting in  his house and going round to intimidate voters with armed policemen.

4. Ward 6 booth 004 result sheets in  many of these booths are photocopies. Ballot papers are incomplete. The APGA and ACN agents were beaten up and pushed out of boot at gun point by Okenze Obinna working for the PDP.

Bye-bye, Ikedi Ohakim, the Saduana of Sokoto.....

Bye-bye, Ikedi Ohakim, go back to Sokoto and tell your Hausa/Fulani Lords that groom S-East politicians before selecting them governors/ senators and imposing them on the Igbos, that the Igbo youths are awake from many years of deep political slumbering. They have taken their rights to choose and elect their leaders.After all your Hausa/Fulani masters have rewarded you with a highst Sokoto Chieftaincy title for helping them bridge the gaps between the North and the East by retarding Igbo educational- indurtial- and economic progress as much as necessary. You are free to relocate to Sokoto or to South Africa where you kept Imo treasury. bye-bye.

IMO AND HISTORY.

History would be fair to Imo people if by the the recently rescheduled election,Rochas becomes the governor of Imo state and this is not because Rochas alone can solve the problem of Imo people but because the people will support him to surmount challenges facing Imo.

Rochas is the best

ROMANUS DIKE you said he give and denor come from where? are you out of your sense? how many did you give to? how many did your father give to? how many did your stupid governor give to? useless guy shot up if you dont no what to say. ROCHAS is the man uppppp Rochas

Dats gud of you you rigged

Dats gud of you you rigged for gej wot goes around will come around I dey laugh o

Jega do it.

Mr President Jonathan and Ohakim or Ohakiya, what are u people doing there, Can't u see Mr Jega is not doing his job properly, What is the matter, why not pay him more money for him to rigg it again.

Good view point Nkemjika

Good view point Nkemjika

Ikedi Ohaki ya

SORRY MY DEAR GOVERNOR IKEDI, YOU SEE, U'RE NOT GOD UPON ALL U DID, THE IMO PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEMN

IMO SUPPLEMENTARY ELECTIONS

ROCHAS has succeeded in turning Imo youths into thugs through the use of illiterate Keke riders who cannot know the difference between truth and lies. Just tell them of free education and they will fall into Rochas trap. They cant ask where the funds will come from. They will tell you he is already giving schorlaships but to how many and how much comes from foreign donors poor thugs

It's shameful

D actn of Imo pple is very uncivilized. if u know that there is a bad egg for ur progress, why the sycophancy?

Jonathan/Ohakim Instructs Jega To Rig Poll!

It's no news as PDP-Jonathan's paid/instructed INEC-Professor Jega to ensure Ohakim-Jonathan's closest long time friend is rigged into office for another term as Ohakim is very important to Jonathan and they came a long way hence, Jega who's been bought over is doing all things possible to ensure Ohakim is rigged and manipulated into office as winner of Imo State governorship.Because Okorocha has already won the people's mandate but Jonathan/Ohakim compelled Jega not to release the winner of first poll,which led to current re-run in few L/G councils where PDP-Jonathan/Ohakim believe Ohakim got the chance to make fresh move to manipulate the final results of the poll.but Imolites are desperately unease and will get their choice to avoid chaos and instability.PDP-Jonathan's very undemocratic and Nigeria wont move no where by 2015,mark my words. Dr Pat Kolawole Awosan,Canada.

...Everything about Ohakim is

...Everything about Ohakim is simply fraudulent, including those innocent Imo people he sent abroad under one promise or another who are now begging our embassies for money to buy their return tickets backs to Nigeria. Does Bruno know Ohakim is building one of the best hotels ever in South Africa when unemployment is forcing our youths into kidnapping business? Shame to you Bruno! I hope people like you will stop abusing the intellect of Imo people worldwide again!

...Planting flowers around

...Planting flowers around Owerri, building new busstops, forcing landlords to paint their houses along major roads in Owerri, hiring thugs to impound cars considered parked along major roads in Owerri (even without any visible public car parks) where his envisaged tourists and people of Imo could park for a few hours for a pay . Dualising few kilometres of federal Roads does not count to his positive achievements. How much has Ohakim succeeded in removing hunger from the table of Imo people by providing them jobs via industrialisation?...

...For the 4 years of

...For the 4 years of Ohakim's regime, could Bruno sincerely discuss the achievements of Ohakim on this website for the world to read. I remember late Gov Sam Onunaka Mbakwe who gave each of the then 19 LGAs of Imo State one viable industry, eg Owerri a shoe industry, Aboh-Mbaise - Paint and Resin, Etiti - Poultry, Aba - Glass, Umuahia - Brewery, Mbaitoli - Aluminium/Extrusion just to name a few. Mbakwe built the IMSU, Imo Airport and started the largest market project (along Egbu Rd.)till today left uncompleted by succeeding regimes...

...and by extension other

...and by extension other innocent people of Imo State who did not profit in any way from the few Naira Bruno was purchased with. I do not personally know Ohakim nor Rochas. I'm not elegible to vote abroad for the good people of Imo State. But they often say, "when America sneezes, the rest of the world catches cold". The more the artificial hardship hanged on the neck of people of Imo by people like Bruno and Ohakim bites, the more those of us abroad feel the pressure through phone calls for help from all who happen to come across your telephone numbers...

...It does not make sense for

...It does not make sense for Bruno to laugh over a few Naira with which he has been purchased, which he may no longer use in the next one year to pay for his children's school fees and candidly may not even reach the doorsteps of Ohakim again to complain to him about the hardship his administration has caused him or his family members because Bruno has already purchased the hardship for himself and other family members ...

Shame to you Bruno!!

Usually, I dont use the F-Words to anybody but I'm provoked by Bruno. One will quickly ask, what's my own interest in Imo politics? I'm from Imo State and some of us abroad feel like committing suicide when we look back,see our beloved ones,friends and family members suffer abject poverty amidst of plenty. I don't know, how much Bruno was paid by the powers that be to propagate falsehood via SR with his poor intellectual gift...

Bruno

You are a crack head. You have nothing to say but to wallow in Ohakim's stupidity. Have you asked your boss why he is struggling to win the election?If you do not know the answer, I will help you. It is simple. All Ohakim needed to do is to provide simple things like good roads, functional water system, good schools and efficent administration. Is it too much to ask.

Foooooooooooool! how come u

Foooooooooooool! how come u ve virtually been everywhere? CURSED BRUNO. OPURU ICHE, NKEN DICHE is a bad name

Bruno ur parents and fore

Bruno ur parents and fore fathers must be ashamed of u. where did u borrow dis from. God will surely send his anger on u and ur family for the ppls voice is dat of God. U have left Vanguard and covetously moved to sahara u rogue and blood sucker. maybe u are the one whom actually wiped the Rev. Father cos i can see u can go to any length to please ur ikiri man. Shame unto ur generation.

Ohakim has WON and nothing will happen!!!

When Buhari got 147 votes (how is that possible?) in Akwa Ibom and GEJ got over a million votes, we said INEC did a good job..

Today, INEC has done a good job again by rigging OHAKIM in. Thank God....Nigerians will reap what they sow...You cannot rig for GEJ and not rig for Ohakim. We have already rigged for Uduaghan and Akpabio...One good rigging turn deserves another rigging turn....Me, I dey laff out loud oh....

Very shameful

Very shameful for Imo state and Nigeria in general.

what a shame

why ii pdp so desperate 2 win imo state its obvious that d people re tired of pdp government why steal thier mandate in the open?

BRuno and his one man

BRuno and his one man campaign. U did not succeed on Nairaland, now u hav com here. Stop detroying ur children's future.

Bruno, Just take a simple

Bruno, Just take a simple tally of responses here and from that gleen how popular you and your smelly rotten product called Ohakim are. Better go find something to do with your frustrated life for there is no way Ohakim will return as Imo governor, even with the monumental and desperate fraud you people are committing.

@ Bruno: It seems the fellow

@ Bruno: It seems the fellow that goes by the name of Bruno in this forum is eager to award the election to Ohakim. The election was held on the 26th and Ohakim lost woefully. He employed all known vices including hiring the presidency to force a run off where the loss this time is far more bigger than in the first election and here we have a Bruno, who might even be the loathed criminal Ohakim himself, doing a one man celebration here. Imo people are waiting and ready and they know that Rochas remains their freely elected governor. We are only waiting for the delayed confirmation.

OHAKIM...SHAME ON YOU!!!

Ohakim and Imo leaders are simply mad...Emma Nworgu is only killing his political career..the next time he enters FUTO OR NEKEDE..I WILL RAISE ALUTARISED STUDENTS AGAINST HIM

What is happening in IMO is a

What is happening in IMO is a case of 'PDP at work'. When other people were crying of PDP/GEJ electoral manipulations we said they are liars, now nkwa?.. what goes around comes around.

Don't they have families.

Let them rig and win and send al-qaida on them. I mean no matter what you do Ohakim will win and You can go to court. Unleash terrorists on them i know you have the money. Tell the REC they can Rig but can't HIDE. Kill the whole of their family and keep them for rigging. Things won't change it's sad.

ALL THE BALLOT BOXES IN THE POLLING BOOTHS IN UMUAHIAGU WARD IN NGOR OKPALA LGA HAVE BEEN ALL CARRIED AWAY. SIR, INEC SHOULD DO SOMETHING AND CANCEL NGOR OKPALA ELECTION NOW OR WE START GOING TO TV AND RADIO.
