Some unfortunate that some animals don't know the meaning of boycott.

When has boycott become stopping an election from taking place ?
Boycott is not the best answer..
That was even the second lesson I learnt.
...
The election was boycotted quite alright, but the INEC officials helped in the rigging.. The numbers you saw were not really the true representation of the turnout..
But even at that, boycott is not the best answer.

If you going to go back in history, go further back to when Ojukwu fought for the presidency.

The number of votes Ojukwu got for APGA in Anambra alone is twice what all the 37 parties in the just concluded elections got. More than a million Anambarians came out to vote. Personally, I dont think up to 100,000 people came out to vote in the last elections, the rest were just 'monetised politics'

The boycott was a big success and low voter turnout is the main proof, not the result sheet. Anyone can manipulate result sheets but the near empty polling boots we all saw do not lie. The Anambra elections is a good start.

Im all for a total boycott of elections in the SS/SE 2019. Something has to change in this country and it wont change by voting.

Boycotting of election is not the best option..
It is suicidal..
In the 2011 election, Anambra state gave Jonathan more that 1m votes.
In 2015, it was far less than 400 thousand votes.. And Buhari won, and that was just that.
Now, you want a repeat of 2015.??
Or you were thinking the Igbos really voted in the presidential election in 2015.??
It was boycotted.. They opened their shops and minded their businesses,, after-all, the candidates were all clueless..
And here we are.. We are all suffering it now..
And you guys are here talking about another boycott.??

I am so sure that Buhari will not get up to 10000 votes in the East in 2019.

Nigeria does not work as a nation, no matter who is power. Even if the president or Governor is from your village, you will still be in a Nigeria where nothing works and there is no progress. How the Hausa see Nigeria is not how the Igbo man sees the country nor how the Yoruba man sees it. We are all too different and all we have done since 1960 is to fight each other. We have had 57 years to test-drive Nigeria and it has been a disaster. Others we started off with such as indonasia, Singapore and Malaysia have all leaped far ahead of us, we are still at the stage of looking for who will give us water, light, good road and federal appointments.

The only thing keeping Nigeria together is Oil. If it were not for it, this country would have broken up long ago.

All the voting our parents and Grandparents did, where did it get them? Where is getting the present generation? No point.


So anyone who wants to have control over their destiny and better their situation has to opt out of Nigeria and one way to emphasize that is to stop participating in the electoral process of Nigeria.

Personally, I think that Igbos can do a far better job of managing and developing Igbo land if they get their own separate country. Nothing in Nigeria ever progresses

yes the boycott rate was high, but I don't see the gain to we igbos if it happens come 2019.After all, it was low voters turnout in the SE that enabled buhari to win
Low voters turn out due to disenfranchisement! A lot of people did not have voters card! Inec made sure they made life difficult for those coming to collect their voters card! Unlike in the northern parts where the same cards were bundled by inec to the palaces of the emirs for onward distribution to their people which could make every tom, dick, harry, camel and cow vote in those places!

With regards to the card reader of a thing. I think u are wrong.

I worked under polling unit 011. And in the same venue with 010. Some people whose card read 010 came to me from time to time to know where they fall in. And in some cases, once I put the card under the card reader, it will reject it and indicate that it is a wrong polling unit.

we re talking of 4 years ago ooo, u re still on almost d same figure. Smh

With how much "IPOB is Igbo and Igbo is IPOB" to find that we are still almost on the same figure must be really disheartening to you.

You threatened them. Told them if they vote you will boycott their businesses. If they vote your IPOB international members will stop sending them money. You even threatened their lives and put juju on polling centers. AND THE PEOPLE STILL CAME OUT TO.VOTE.

I keep asking again and again..
Will the practice of "not participating in the electoral process of Nigeria" opt the Igbos out of Nigeria.??
Are there no better ways of passing this message across.??

I want to know if the best way of passing a message across to someone who is oppressing you, is by staying indoors and waiting on him to notice you like as if he ever cared.

You know..
I consider things before doing..
Likewise some other people that saw no gain in the boycott and actually went out to vote..
IPOB should find another method of protest, and if it passes the message of the Igbo people to the wicked oppressors without giving these same oppressors more powers over them,, you will see an absolute 100% compliance..
..
When they announced that they wanted to arrest IPOB members, I laughed..
You know why.??
I laughed because I said to myself, "How would they know the IPOB people.?? Or are they going to arrest all the Igbo people".

So Shocking!!! See what happen after the burial of the 26 Nigeria girls who dies at the mediterranean sea

After keeping silence for a long time, many Nigerian get angry and explode on social medias concerning the death of the 26 Nigerians girls who dies at the mediterranean sea, the Federal Government over the weekend reportedly set up a committee to probe the death of 26 Nigerian teenage girls whose bodies a Spanish ship took from the Mediterranean Sea to Salerno in Southern Italy for mass burial.

in 2013 it waS clear that Willie was going to win far before the election , in 2017, as at Friday 19 most political analyst were not sure of what the outcome of the election will be, the dynamics and narratives changed entirely. more candidates were presented, we had the very best from all works of life, men with the necessary business acumen to move anambra state forward, men with the intellectual sagacity, men who have proven themselves worthy in all works of life. we had a Willie that do not owe salary, an obaze with international diplomacy who proved his worth in the debate, an osita that excelled as FRCS commander and a Nwoye with the courage and determination, one will expect more voters than In 2013. but yet we had just 20% voters, the joke is on all of you who expected more voters than what was gotten, rather than coming in terms with the reality on ground you have all of a sudden begin to compare and contrast results of past election to console yourself .

You dey mind those clowns, just 4% is making them feel like champions even if the total number of people this time was more than last election. Anyways, IPOB said only 10,000 people voted meaning 99.9% boycotted.
