APC Supporters In Rivers Throng The streets, Protesting The Election

Hundreds of APC supporters stormed the streets of Port Harcourt in Rivers State this afternoon, protesting the conduct of yesterday's election in the state. 

According to Channels TV reporter Emmanuel Ereyi, the 50,000 protesters were drawn from across the state were led by APC governorship candidate, Dakuku Peterside. 

The protesters who claimed that there was no election in Rivers State yesterday, were said to have marched through major roads leading to INEC office in the state capital, amid the heavy presence of unarmed security operatives. However, the protesters were barred from gaining entrance into the premises of INEC's office by soldiers and policemen.

Show Of Shame: Actors Fight Over Dame Jonathans’ N3m

The recent visit of First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan to Enugu has left a big scar on Nollywood. This is because the police in Enugu are currently looking for ways to settle the bitter feud that engulfed the artistes’ community in the state over how an alleged First Lady’s largesse would be shared among top actors who at­tended her rally.
This feud has seemingly put one group known as Nollywood Apostles against other stakeholders in Enugu State led by Patience Ozo­kwor popularly known as Mama G, making it very difficult for the center to hold.
As at last Thursday, some of Nollywood’s big wigs involved were still angry and had refused to show up at the Police Area Com­mand, Abakpa Nike, Enugu where the case was domiciled. The Area Commander had arranged for them to settle the matter amicably.
Checks reveal that Nollywood Apostles comprising some of the best faces in the movie industry including Steve Ajebo Eboh, Charles Awurum, Emeka Enyiocha, Bene­dict Johnson, Chinwe Owoh, and Ngozi Ezeonu among others had been featuring at several PDP campaign rallies including the one that brought Dame Jonathan to Enugu.
According to a source, trouble started after the departure of the First Lady when facilitators of the rally, Patience Ozokwor and Chinyere Wilfred were on stage giving the vote of thanks. An aide to Dame Jona­than had allegedly dropped a parcel contain­ing N3 million into the hands of one of the actors, which he quickly cornered with the con­nivance of his fellow ‘Apos­tles’. But the cookies crumbled when the aide called Mama G aside and intimated her of the monetary gift and to whom it was handed.
“The real drama started when the actor who collected the parcel was about to zoom out of the venue in his car. Mama G re-enacted her screen roles for real. In her view, the money was meant for all the stakehold­ers who graced the rally and not only for the Nollywood Apostles. Mama G stood in the way of the car, yelling and ask­ing to be crushed just as she sent someone to call the police. She didn’t mind being called witch, ashawo and all sorts of unprint­able names. She blocked the car until the police came and took all the parties to the station,” a source says.
However, Steve Eboh has denied ever being involved in such a show of shame. He told Entertain­er: “I never had anything to do with any money or anything like that. Don’t mind them, my brother. As I speak with you now, I am on my way to see Father Ede in Elele, Rivers State.”
For Charles Awurum, who later returned this reporter’s call after several phone calls made to him, it was denial all the way. Hear him: “I don’t know about any issues concerning Dame Jonathan’s money. I am in Port Harcourt now, please.”
On her part, Patience Ozokwor confirmed the story but she wouldn’t want to elaborate further, until after the elections. “The police have invited everyone to the station for settlement,” she volunteered.

Oshiomhole Accuses Dokpesi Of Using Soldiers To Disrupt Elections, Beat Edo People, As Dokpesi Denies Involvement

Here’s how Premium Times reports the incident.

The Edo State government and the owner of Daar Communications, Raymond Dokpesi, on Sunday exchanged words over allegations of sponsoring attacks on voters in Edo.

A spokesperson for Governor Adams Oshiomhole in a message sent to Premium Times accused Mr. Dokpesi of using soldiers to attack voters in the state.


The spokesperson, Peter Okhiria, quoted Mr. Oshiomhole as making the accusations while speaking to journalists in the state after casting his vote at Unit 1, Ward 10, Iyamho.

“To my surprise, the man that I respect so much, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi who I regard as a brother brought troops to Auchi, attacked women, beat up elderly people, attacked the electorate and disrupted elections at Auchi once they saw that the result being announced so far favoured APC and favoured Buhari,” Mr. Oshiomhole said.

The governor was quoted as saying he found it confusing that the media owner had access to soldiers for personal task.

“Dokpesi brought Army from nowhere. I don’t know when Dokpesi became commander in chief of the Army to have such rights,” he said.

However, Mr. Dokpesi denied the allegations and expressed surprise it was coming from the governor.

“My brother Comrade Adams could never have made the spurious allegations you claim he made against me. We come a very long way,” he said in a text message to Premium Times.

Mr. Dokpesi said he was the person attacked by some APC leaders while he was leaving the Edo State.
“I am to formally inform you that on my way to Abuja this evening I went to see Hajia Hadizat Inu Umoru at Aibotse/Igbe primary school off Igbe Road in Auchi.

“One Magaji Usman -APC state vice chairman and Agbor attacked me at the location.

“They shot and threw stones at my vehicle. In order to avoid unnecessary bloodbath I pleaded with my armed escorts not to touch anyone,” the owner of Nigeria’s first private radio and television stations said.


“I have since reported to the Auchi Area Command,” he said.

APC Posting Fake Results- PDP Alerts

Press statement from the PDP...
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has charged Nigerians to totally disregard misleading figures being circulated by the APC in the social media as results of the Presidential and National Assembly elections in some polling booths.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Sunday said the figures were “fake and do not represented the true results which are currently being collated by INEC, the only body authorized to release and announce results”.

“The APC in its desperation for power has resorted to posting fake results in the social media in a bid to ambush the electoral commission, mislead the unsuspecting public to believe it is winning, all in furtherance of its grand plot to cause confusion and set the stage for violence when the authentic results are finally released.

“We therefore alert Nigerians to be on their guard and close ranks in resisting the APC’s plot to plunge the nation into chaos and anarchy.  Our democracy has come to stay and the will of the people must prevail over and above the parochial ambition of a selfish few.

“Finally, we strongly caution the APC against its acts of desperation and use of dishonest methods including physical attacks against our members and supporters as these pose great threat to our democracy, the unity and stability of our dear nation.

Olisa Metuh
National Publicity Secretary

‘PDP Shared Money At My Polling Unit’- Akinwunmi Ambode

The All Progressives Congress governorship candidate in Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, says President Goodluck Jonathan was able to get 71 votes at his (Ambode’s) polling unit at Ward A5, polling unit 03, Epe, because members of the Peoples Democratic Party distributed cash.
He, however, expressed pleasure in the fact that the APC presidential candidate, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), got 97 votes.
He said, “Some PDP people distributed cash at my polling unit, but they still failed. Hopefully, subsequent elections will be different as people become more enlightened.”
Ambode said the process of accreditation
went smoothly in his area.
The PDP Lagos Chairman, Capt. Tunji Shelle, however, said Ambode was making a baseless accusation because he was afraid of losing the April 11 governorship election.
He said, “Who are the people who shared the money? Ambode knows that he will lose in the governorship poll. He should come forward with proofs.”
