Gov-Rotimi-Amaechi

A video which was apparently recorded by one of the governors during the Nigeria Governors Forum election apparently reveals that Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi is the true winner.

SaharaReporters released the video which was evidence that the election occurred in Abuja on Friday. The video showed Governor of Delta State, Emmanuel Uduaghan as an agent in the counting of the votes while Director General of the NGF, Asishana Okauru, worked as the Returning Officer for the election.

Okauru recorded 19 votes for Amaechi and 16 votes for the Returning Officer then proceeded to count the votes of his rival, who is also the Governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang, who recorded 16 votes.

However, Jang supporters have already gone on to announce plans to build the secretariat of the faction of the Forum led by Jang. The secretariat is located at Alvan Ikoku Street, Maitama, Abuja.

According to reports, the administrator designate of the factional secretariat, Mr. Osaro Onaiwu, confirmed the story in a telephone interview with our correspondent on Tuesday.

He said, “We are inviting the leaders of all the political parties like the Peoples Democratic Party, Action Congress of Nigeria, All Nigeria Peoples Party, All Progressive Grand Alliance, Labour Party and Congress for Progressive Change for the event.

“We are also inviting all the governors, including the Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi.”

The Punch reports:

The governor had admitted being the agent for the two governors, who ran for the office of the chairman.

After the voting, Okauru first counted the number of ballot papers, which tallied with the number of voters (governors) present on the occasion.

After the counting, some governors shouted “correct” while others also clapped.

The result of the counting showed that there were 35 ballot papers, which indicated that one of the governors was absent.

Saturday PUNCH had reported that when some of the supporters of Jang realised that he had lost the election, they hurriedly left the venue of the election, saying there was no election.

  1. What else do we crave for. Our leaders wont even accept an election thats that free and fair.
    What examples are they leaving for the youth and aspiring young leaders
    What Legacy are they leaving for the generation unborn.
    My heart weeps

  2. Jang and his men are disgrace.

  3. If an election held among the so-called equals could be a subject of callous denials by some of the participants, then one begins to wonder what will happen to the Nigeria electoral processes and the 2015 election itself, where these kind of dubious and shameless characters hold sway.

  4. Gov. Amaechi must learn to give respect and honour to master, boss and Elders. he should remember where he is coming from and also known he is a governor of a state. He musyt lead by example.

    1. Engr Adeniran sunday are one of dos who enjoy corruption bcos he is sayin the truth he is not obeying the leaders, any way u are one of dem that benefit frm the inflation of contract

  5. Ladies and gentlemen, please watch this video and draw your conclusions about those who shall be in control of the states where you hope to cast your votes in 2015…and those who are in power at the federal level and the way they have taken the aftermath of an election that is CLEARLY FREE AND FAIR !!! WILL VOTES COUNT UNDER THE PDP ADMINISTRATION IN NIGERIA ?
