After a strategic meeting in the APC’s new secretariat in Wuse 2, the Federal Capital Territory, which lasted about three hours, the party leaders took to the streets and embarked on a procession to INEC’s office in Maitama District.

    I think this protest should not b about APC loosing and protesting and wining and not protesting or about the people who are at the for front of the protest. The truth is that the election was mared with irregularities and the INEC boss attested to that. Also that the people figthing this injustice are the old men of this country who have but few year to leave. Where are our youths? the so called leaders of tomorrow. I want to state categorically that one of the major reforms Nigeria need today is to allow the people to choose who will govern them. Once that is done, u know that we are headed for a glorious feature

    I weep for Nigeria. I am Nigerian with my constitutional right to belong to any association(s)but honestly what we have presently is aa aggregation of dangerous cabals who are bent on sucking the country dry. I a country where politics is practised with honour, Jega should have honourably resigned to keep his name and hard earned integrity. Unfortunately he is himself a willing apostle of impunity and administrative recklessness. I am seriously praying for a return to Regioonalism come 2015 when Nigeria finally brake up. I weep for Nigeria.

    APC ur days are numbered in south west, the LG election in Ogun, Lagos, Edo etc… are worst than anambra election, If APC won Inec is good if not Jega must resign, Rubish people. Take note Labour party is going to take over from APC in south west come 2015.

    If any body should protest it certainly shouldn’t Tinubu( Agbero) who claim to have Lagos on his palm. As the God I serve lives this Boko leaders will never rule this country. PDP is still far better than these crop of embeciles who are bent to take over power by any means

    Mr. goddie, if tinubu is an agbero den we need more of an agbero in d Nigerian politics. frankly speaking, do u support an election dt has been proved to be flawed immensely by an inec official? it is time we shy away from sentiments and face realities to move Nigeria forward.

    Why the protest in the first place? I hate this level of impunity that is been chaired by these said Progressives with destructive actions. Where are they taking us to with such negative ideology vested on the masses to disintegrate this Nation. We have to rise up and fight such fellows away from our political scene before it gets late.

    Honestly, I do not disagree wit d request dt d election be re-conducted but the sacking of d chairman is wat I do not see to be necessary and this is simply bcos if dat man shld be removed, it may be difficult to find another suitable and honest one who will err and still come out to accept it like him as those in office are jst too tribalistic to be trusted. The next thng we’ll see is one of their ‘boys’ being appointed which will only make things worse. Hence, my advice to APC is not to throw the baby out with the bath water. I thnk they shld only request for a rerun to correct the mistake.
