NIGERIA GETS NEW PRESIDENT

BREAKING NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

Nigerians now have a new president in the person of Umar Musa Yar’ Adua. He garnered over 24 million votes in the April 21st presidential election. Mohammed Buhari came in second with 6 million votes, while Atiku Abubakar got over 2.6 million votes. Others in the race like Emeka Ojukwu got over 150 thousand votes, Chris Okotie received about 84,000 votes while Pat Utomi got about 50,000 votes. YAR’ADUA secured the highest votes in Rivers, Edo, Delta, Ebonyi, Nasarawa, Osun, Enugu and six other states. BUHARI however won in Kano, Borno and the FCT while ATIKU emerged victorious in Lagos. The final results of the presidential poll were announced by INEC Chairman, Professor MAURICE IWU who is also the Chief Returning Officer. Yar'adua and his vice Goodluck Jonathan will be sworn in on May 29, 2007. Let's hope they bring change to the country with this mandate considering the fact that they are off the academic breed and should know BETTER!!! (We'll see about that sha.. all I know is that I want constant power supply, better roads and NO TRAFFIC)

======================
ELECTIONS

Meanwhile, the ANPP and A.C. presidential candidates, ATIKU ABUBAKAR and MUHAMMADU BUHARI have vowed not to accept the results of Saturday’s poll. The duo said the ruling PDP rigged the elections in several states. Speaking with newsmen in Yola, ATIKU alleged that the elections were marred by widespread irregularities.
According to him, seventy percent of Nigerians were disenfranchised because of late arrival of election materials in many states.


===========================

ELECTIONS

In a related development, opposition parties are to meet today to review the outcome of the general elections. The parties are also to fashion out an appropriate response to the current political situation in the country.

=======================

The Bauchi state governor, ADAMU MUAZU of the PDP has lost his bid to win a senatorial seat. He was defeated by the ANPP candidate.
However, Governors SAMINU TURAKI, of Jigawa, ADAMU ALIERO of Kebbi, CHIMAROKE NNAMANI of Enugu and GEORGE AKUME of Benue succeeded in wining the senatorial election in their respective states.
==============================
DABIRI

Despite being given another mandate to represent the Ikorodu Lagos constituency at the Federal House of Representatives, Honorable ABIKE DABIRI has condemned the spate of violence and inadequacies in Saturday’s elections. DABIRI who looked forward to an improved representation at the federal house told our correspondent RAYMOND AKPARHUERE that her life was threatened by one of her opponents.

==============================
RESULTS

More results of the National Assembly elections have been declared.
In Enugu state, PDP won all the three senatorial seats and the seven House of Representatives seats declared so far. PDP also won the two senatorial seats declared so far in Gombe state. The PDP also cleared all the three senatorial seats in Imo state. One of those elected into the Senate from Imo state is CHRIS ANYANWU, a veteran broadcast journalist.
=============================

============================

INEC has also announced the results of the National Assembly elections held in Lagos state. Senator OLORUNIMBE MAMORA of the AC was re-elected while AC was also cleared all the seventeen House of Representatives seats. How ever, the PDP won all the three senatorial seats in Oyo state. The son of the controversial Ibadan politician, LAMIDI ADEDIBU, KAMARUDIN, was declared winner in Oyo south senatorial district. PDP won eight of the nine federal constituencies while AC secured one.
EKITI
All the senate seats in Osun, Akwa Ibom, Ebonyi and Ekiti states were won by the PDP. In Nasarawa state, PDP won two senatorial seats while ANPP secured one. In the FCT, ANPP secured the only senatorial seat and one House of Representatives seat. The other one went to the PDP. The ANPP presidential flag bearer, MUHAMMADU BUHARI secured majority votes in the FCT.
BUHARI polled ninety one thousand, two hundred and seventeen votes, the PDP scored seventy four thousand, eight hundred and eighty two while the AC had sixteen thousand, seven hundred and ninety six votes. The results were announced by INEC’s Commissioner for Information and Publicity, PHILIP UMEADI JUNIOR.
===========================
NAVAL OFFICERS

The Nigerian Navy has described as a national tragedy the death of three of its officers in the helicopter crash in Imo state, while conveying election materials. The deceased officers are THOMPSON ADEKOYA, YUSUF ISHAKA and PIUS MENE who died last Friday.
The incident happened at Logara, a community in Ngor-Okpala local government area. Speaking while receiving the remains of two of the victims at the local wing of the Lagos Airport, the Flag Officer commanding Western Naval Command, ISHAYA IBRAHIM said their untimely departure would be greatly felt. Families of the victims have already demanded for the corpse for burial.
======================
IWU

INEC Chairman, Professor MAURICE IWU has assured that adequate mechanism has been put in place to authenticate the results of the presidential and national assembly election across the country. Professor IWU who applauded the election exercise said Nigeria was now set to break the jinx of civilian to civilian transition with the outcome of the general elections. Addressing a live news conference monitored in Lagos, the INEC boss said the elections were eighty percent successful.
==============================
ELECTIONS

Local and international observers have picked holes in last Saturday’s elections. The largest local observer group, Transition Monitoring Group in its report called for fresh elections in the country.
Chairman of TMG, INNOCENT CHUKWUMA said the elections were so flawed that a winner could not be announced on the basis of the results. The International Republican Institute, IRI in its report said the elections lacked credibility. President of IRI, LORNE GRAINER who presented the report in Abuja said lack of preparation, massive rigging and confusion of voting centres marred the exercise.
GRAINER called on the Nigerian electorate to explore democratic means to resolve disputes arising from the election.
============================
ANAMBRA`

The Conference of Nigerian Political Parties, CNPP has called for fresh elections in the state. Rising from a meeting in Awka, the parties alleged that the presidential, governorship, national assembly and house of assembly elections did not take place in the state.

The meeting was attended by representatives of the PPA, APGA, ADC and vice presidential candidates of ANPP and AC, Chief EDWIN UME-EZEOKE and BEN OBI. Our man reports that elections were conducted in some local government areas in Anambra yesterday when people were attending church services.
==================================
COMMONWEALTH

Another international election monitoring group, the Commonwealth Observer Group says last Saturday’s election witnessed significant shortcomings. Head of the mission, Justice JOSEPH WARIOBA said massive irregularities were noticed in several states such as Katsina and Edo. The Commonwealth however said there were visible improvements in the presidential election as against the governorship and house of assembly elections.

Adaure-thanks for the update. Very interesting times. Not suprised with the Presidential win. At this point, waiting to see where he takes the country. Hopefully, there will come a time in Nigeria where eletions does not equal casualties.

Folu said...

wow, you're back!!! Thanks for the update, I figured you'd have information about the elections. It's really no suprise that Yar'adua won though. I really hope the transition goes well and we see some REAL changes. Your "no traffic" wish is never going to happen though loll. I mean, we in some cities in the US go through this and some of these cities have subway transportation, not to mentioned Lagos that has none of that.

I saw you doing your thing on the news last night on Silverbird as a reporter. I do think you will be quite successful. However I have a question - what is with the faux accent??? You are Nigerian, raised here (according to another entry of urs i read), finished secondary school here no? So why the accent? do you think it makes you appear more polished? awayian? It doesnt you just sound fake and nasal. Please be natural!

Well, this was just another case of "selections" instead of "elections" but I hope for the best. Maybe Yar'Adua will be used to bring Nigeria to greatness. Lets all be optimistic. Thanks Adaure for the updates.
