Voter Apathy In Jonathan's Bayelsa Gubernatorial Election

By SaharaReporters, New York

Voters in Bayelsa state largely avoided voting centers in the court-ordered gubernatorial elections in the state.

Election observers in the state told Saharareporters that turn out was generally low across the state. President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife are in the state waiting to vote in controversial election in which the handpicked candidate of Mr. Jonathan is expected to win.

An team of observers covering Osekeleke community in Sagbama local government said their materials were forcefully taken from them and thrown into the sea.

Also, in Yenegoa, an observer reported tha police and youth corp members were aiding the People's Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in thumbprinting ballot paper.

Nigerian & PDP

Which planet are you from? When PDP wins everything is wrong. For the past 10 years of PDP, can we boost of electricity, Water, Good road, good health delivery, qualitative education, and most of all security of lives/properties? of course NO.
You definitely need a reality check.

ELECTION FRAUDSTARS

PDP don't usually allow the masses to express/nominate the candidate of their choice during primaries, this explains why they engage in all forms of electoral malpractices to ensure the success of their hand picked candidate. This is not democracy.

IS IT TRUE?

Is it true that the new vehicle plate number that will cost every motorist in Nigeria N38,000 is being produced by a company owned by Mrs. Jonathan. Is it true that a share of the money will be used by Mr Chidoka (the Corps Marshal) to fund his Anambra State Guber campaign?
Is it true that because of the first lady’s involvement FRSC has defied the National Assembly and continued with the project that adds no benefit to the safety of motorists?
Sahara Reporters please investigate

Robbery Made Simple

So far, Nigerian elections can best be described as robbery made simple through the Electoral Commissions. Most of those claiming victory from the elections are worse than armed robbers because their corrupt practices have thrown million Nigerians into hardship of unimaginable proportion.

Adebola you are an Asshole.

Adebola you are an Asshole. Shame on your pathetic soul

@Adebola: Re: Stop murmuring/complaining

@Adebola
U claim " People should be truthful in all things. PDP is still the party to beat in nigeria."

If you truly believe in this statement, not that you were induced with N1k, then there is no hope for you and your generation to come. What a wasted life ! All you need do is look at your life in 1999 compared to now; is there any appreciable improvement? Do you think it can be better. Do u think the wealth of Nigeria justifies what is on ground? Do think it is fair for any govt. to pay anyone N18k as minimum wage ? Compared with 1999, what is the security, road, power, primary health care situation now in the sixht oil producing country in the world?
GOVERNMENT IS FORTUNATE THEY GOVERN OVER PEOPLE WHO CAN'T THINK !

Shame on Jonathan. You are a disgrace

This dumbo is a useless man. As I keep saying, we Deltans are people of integrity. The good people of Bayelsa have decided to stay at home as a protest against the pre-determined outcome of the selection. Our clueless president is so unpopular that if genuine elections were held, his PDP and his hand-picked puppet would lose badly. Where are the corrupt Jega and his rotten INEC now? Dumbo knows only how to rig elections and steal money. This moron lacks legitimacy and the shameful scam happening in Bayelsa now is further proof of that. It's such a pity that only the money-loving Igbos seem to like our brainless dictator. Let them have him. Good riddance to bad rubbish!

Wake up Nigerians- PDP is Cancerous.

Nigerian voters that went on the streets against PDPbad economic policies are the same that voted for PDP in Adamawa and now PDP in Bayelsa. It is a pity that Nigerian voters are not yet ready to redeem Nigeria.

bayelsa election

HOW CAN A MAN WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE IN FAIR PLAY AND RULE OF LAW LEAD A COUNTRY TO HER ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL PROMISED LAND?JONATHAN IS A MAN IN WHOM OBASANJO'S SPIRIT OF POLITICAL FOUL PLAY AND LIES LIVE.I PITY THE MAN,BUT ABOVE ALL POSTERITY WILL JUDGE ALL OUR LEADERS. POSTERITY IS JUDGING MANDELA NOW EVEN BEFORE HIS DEATH.

haaa those observers

haaa those observers interviewed today between 12.00 and 1.30 by nta acknowledged that there was voter apathy

Stop murmuring/complaining

People don't see happenings of ACN. A party so strategically dubious like in Ekiti where Aregbesola, a dubious strategist embarked/ collided with security agents to rig in favour of their party during the senatorial election in Ekiti. Also in lagos where agberos embarrased/threatened PDP members against their wish in all the elections. People should be truthful in all things. PDP is still the party to beat in nigeria.

responce to above

Why are people worry? The way Timi came in the way he left; so also this hand pick man will come same way and soon leave even worse than Timi left. Just be patient. But the effect will come on GEJ when he leave the Presidency. QED

Bayelsa Gov Election

It is high tine Nigerians should stop bothering themselues about voting for any one the PDP haue clearly stated that they are going to rule Nigerians for decade then why bother to contest?

Mr Jonathan if you can not

Mr Jonathan if you can not stabilize, control and check mate your state, how can you lay claim to stabilize, control and check mate the nation? Mr Jonathan you must command and deserve respect and authority from your base, your state, your zone. Mr Jonathan charity they say starts form the home. Nigerians please be the judge and decide if we have not lost an arm and a leg.
