Save Delta State

Even though we work through the shadow of death and oppression, we shall fear no evil ,for thy rod and thy staff dey comfort us.God prepare a table b4 us in the present of the riggers and oppressors.

They do not love this country so they did not love Delta State , they came to trade with the right and justice of the people, they sold our state to criminals and we will fight in the court legally to restore victory to the state.
we shall present all facts we have to the reporters so Jega could see what he call free and fair election.
God bless true Deltans

Nigeria A a Country

we need true leaders in Nigeria, Jega has failed Deltans and we are looking up to what the court will decide because i know this is not going to end that way for the dying Delta State .. Jonathan should clean up the mess in the state.. is is that every body that has access to the internet does not like Uduaghan? no but it is because Deltans did not want him and INEC impose him one us

BE FAIR AND NUETRAL IN YOUR REPORTING

This saharereporters or whatever they call theirselves should be a bit positive in thier reporting instead of inciting the general public.the picture above showed nothing about bailot box snatching,neither the videoclip shown.We know that the system is bad but,this type of junk journalisn makes it worst.

Which Way for One Man One Vote?

The actions here are quite clear, no stiff opposition was expected at this polling center by the thugs and security personnel, so no need for much force. But from the persistent voice of a young man in the background, no counting was obviously done, as he seeks to know where that will be done. So how do the voters know of the outcome of the election in this unit?. God bless Delta State and God bless Nigeria.

1 See, a king will reign in

1 See, a king will reign in righteousness
and rulers will rule with justice.
2 Each man will be like a shelter from the wind
and a refuge from the storm,
like streams of water in the desert
and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land.
3 Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed,
and the ears of those who hear will listen.
4 The mind of the rash will know and understand,
and the stammering tongue will be fluent and clear.
5 No longer will the fool be called noble
nor the scoundrel be highly respected.
6 For the fool speaks folly,
his mind is busy with evil:
He practices ungodliness
and spreads error concerning the Lord;
the hungry he leaves empty
and from the thirsty he withholds water.
7 The scoundrel's methods are wicked,
he makes up evil schemes
to destroy the poor with lies,
even when the plea of the needy is just.
8 But the noble man makes noble plans,
and by noble deeds he stands.

I wonder how anyone can call

I wonder how anyone can call this ballot snatching...if you don't can't people just keep quite. I tire for una!!!

This is not ballot snatching,

Everywhere was peaceful, all the INEC officails and party representatives even the militay persoannel in the unit went in the bus, no one shout, no treat and violence and even the vocals was talking about going to the town hall to count............... trust me............ if it is ballot snatching this guy/lady won't be there to tape or video this. 

Cheers

Hi

You are right... i happen to work with Shell and i Visited my friend in that Ward... Its a Shame. because that is just the true story

THIS IS A LIE

Those are not ballot boxes thieves, they are workers who are showing the ballot boxes to voters as they came to the polling center. Jesus SAHARA REPORTERS. This is not journalism at all but disturtion of facts.

I know the location where this video was shot

the place you see in the video showing how ballot boxes where stolen is in warri, to be precise it is in the compound of court 4 off airport road warri, the court is only a few meters away from the private residence of the governor and it is even closer to the fire for fire mopol base which is at the juction of the street.

The rigging begins in Lagos?

There was mild drama today at OLA-OLU PRIMARY SCHOOL located at AGUNBIADE STREET (very close to the somolu LG secretariat), somolu, Lagos.
In responce to the advert put up by INEC for the recruitment of Ad-hoc staff for the up-coming voter registration excercise, hundreds of corps members, ex corps members and staffs of federal establishments between grade levels 6 - 8 and students of federal institutions applied for the job. After days of screening at the Somolu office of the commission, names of successful applicants were released with information that training was slated to commence on Friday 7th January 2011.
All concerned parties as expected showed up for the excercise on the scheduled date. But drama started on the second day of training when in a sudden fashion, the INEC officials at the venue of the training announced to the ex corps members and staffs of federal establishments between grade levels 6 - 8 and students of federal institutions that their services were no longer required in the local government area for the up-coming excercise. An announcement which sparked up protests by the affected people. During the protest period, calls were allegedly made to some people in INEC at Abuja and the responce was that Abuja was not aware of such development.
According to one of the corps members at the scene of the event, corps members from Eti-Osa LG have been moved to join those at Somolu LG for the excercise.
This development many claimed is the begining of a planned programme which will help politicians to successfully rigg the general elections.
Men of the Nigeria Police Force were however deployed to the scene to silence and scare the protesters. The questions on the minds of many people are what gave rise to the sudden shift? what happened between yesterday evening when the affected applicants left the venue of the training ant this morning? why is Abuja not aware of such a twist? who are those responsible for the twist?

after selling ur soules what next

After spending the whole money my sister, the suffering will continue. look at the hunger on the face of the lady stealing the ballot box.
BBC Big blind country, the world is watching. Nigeria the mumu of African.

Rigging Part II

they rigged the first one and now they are rigging the second time. this vote is yeye voting. shame on us

What do u expect?

People think Jega will be a saviour, in fact I feel sorry for the man who faces uphill battle and he will end up rubbishing his good name in the mud. Nigerians are too far gone in embezzlement, corruption, power hungry,orderlessness, rigging as most of our people say in Nigeria "even if Jesus comes to Nigeria we won't let him do good things.
These are tastes of are imminent come 2011.

Nigeria, good people, great nation!!!

I CRY FOR DELTANS,SUFFERING AND SMILING....

I'm happy God is not a man To deceive...we all know now that the man we want as a president is not the right person,we all have been deceived by this sole called PDP{papa deceive pikin} members,i blame Jega and Jonathan...Jonathan has been pretending to be a good leader but i know he's doing nothing to help this Nation..the Re run election in Delta went on with rigging..thugs,police men,political leaders,youth chairman and more...i want you to know that the money you collected for the rigging is not enough to feed your families....

My story begins..on that day of the election in my area,they never allow members to vote for Ogboru,a friend had to take a taxi to another location to vote for DPP,the PDP thugs we having a machine used to shock ppl,a member of DPP was shocked when not happy with what he's seeing in the voting center,they also shocked a woman working for the Inec too,she was very angry and said will be reporting about what she saw,they had to beg her and promise to give her good sum of money,billot boxes were stolen,people were scared not to vote for Ogburu that they will be shocked with that machine and they will loose their focus,they brought money and started sharing and announcing to everyone that if you vote for PDP they will give their head #100 and some places #1000...they used their members to thumb print and sill all the boxes with PDP..imagine KOKO wnere the river is far bigger than the land and houses more than humans,they got all their votes from there...lol

Advice to Great Ogboru.....we all know if this election is help 50times u re still the winner,you won Ibori not to talk of Uduaghan,they re all kids...you need to get on that old suit,this country need war,we need to kill all the bad leaders and have the good and able leaders in place....try to cause war in the state and have what belongs to you,we re waiting for someone who is ready to sponsor and we re fully ready to work without payment,you have always been a man people want Ogboru,we have always need you without seeing your face or postal....we love u more!!!

For this people,time will come for you soon....Jonathan,Uduaghan,Utuama,Ese Olugbo,Ayiri Emami and i guess you know ur followers like Vicent Okudolor{Man with Guns n bloods} and others,i will wait until ur ass get down....for you Vincent,you can keep troubling the people of your village,i know they re growing stronger youths and soon will have someone to give them the spirit to fight and defeat you and you so call members,you have been ruling that community for over 18yrs now and still no development,keep buying flashy cars and keep the people of your community is pains,their tears and blood will worry you till the end of your life..Amen

Just can't wait till the day you can sit up right or breath,will be the happiest man on earth...

Ogboru try to fight against those that rigged your election,do what the people will fear about you,let them know you've done something that makes this country recognize you...fight them with fire and thunder...be strong my Great Ogboru,you re truly a man of the people,your aim to save Deltans is known to all but some still want same want to die in a bad government..Jonathan your plan will fail and you will have no where to hide and for your information Uduaghan is not with you in this presidential Election...fight 4 yourself..nie be OYO STATE..ON YOUR OWN..HAHAHHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHHAH LEAVING THIS COUNTRY SOON.....

I agree With You.

@ Isimeme: I agree with you on your suggestions and comment. You captured the inner workings of some Nigerians correctly. Many of us cannot think outside of the self-imposed box that many have put themselves in, which is tribalism. If all of us can have a bigger picture of an egalitarian Nigeria where everybody will be equally respected with equal rights and privilidges, then Nigeria will be a sweet place to live.

Looking at the situation of things in Nigeria and the attitude of the elected and appointed leaders, it makes your suggestion for a STRONG leader who should not be a democratically elected leader but a leader whose job is to cleanse the system and whip us into line with force when necessary. We need a styrong leader that will really put hot pepper in the eyes of all past & present corrupt leaders and say a big NO to lawlessness, wrecklessness, corruption, misrule, indiscipline, violent crimes, selfish tribalism, nepotism, hollowness and executive indolence etc, etc.

There is something seriously

There is something seriously wrong with an electoral system that rewards an election fraudster (a confirmed election rigger - see the Court of Appeal judgment against Emmanuel Uduaghan) by allowing him to contest in a re-election for the office he had taken illegally. There is no higher crime against Nigerians than the mindless election rigging perpetrated on the citizens by the likes of Uduaghan and his cousing James Ibori. This crime allows these goons and blood suckers to continue plundering and raping our country without being made to answer to Nigerians. Uduaghan, as an example, had no business re-contesting for the governorship he had previously highjacked through all manner of fraud.

Why are our leaders so shortsighted and evil?

Wuru Wuru Jaga Jaga

From Iwu wuruwuru to Jega jagajaga!!!! Naija na wa!!

Nigeria wuru wuru jaga jaga!! everything scater scater!!!

ABUBAKAR ATIKU'S- ASSHOLE EXPOSED !!!!!
