d people are the main stay of participatory governance, they and not the law will do the voting when a run off I called

Nna eh. Wetin person no go see for una hand.
Senator why are you attacking me? I am not the returning officer that declared ihedioha winner. Na opinion I throw.
Since you are sure of a rerun why don't you just sit and laugh at PDP for celebrating an illegality that will be upturned?
While you are at that, let us celebrate an end to iberibeism. Because with rerun or no rerun, rochas is gone for good.
|Re: . by Hairyrapunzel: 1:01pm On Mar 13, 2019|
A run off happens when the top two candidates have equal number of votes.
|Re: . by Bolognese: 1:08pm On Mar 13, 2019|
That's not true. Please read section 179 of the 1999 constitution (as amended) from subsection 1 to 5. Subsection 3, 4 and 5 focuses on runoff elections!
|Re: . by tuborme: 1:30pm On Mar 13, 2019|
There is a big difference in section one and section 2 of this law....the first section stresses each local government when only two people are contesting, but when more than two people are contesting, section two kicks in...each local government won’t be considered in watching the spread.

kelvinginzie:Honestly i dont know.inec never made mention of the total cancelled votes.it was the pdp candidates that were speculating and throwing figures around.therefore,inec were inorder.
|Re: . by senatordave1(m): 2:01pm On Mar 13, 2019|
dokie:Sorry for the attack.you are right by the way.i have been to owerri,the city tight oh.i wonder why rochas is so hated.
|Re: . by senatordave1(m): 2:06pm On Mar 13, 2019|
tuborme:Oga,you are trying to be clever by a quarter.dont misinterpret a clear provision.the law clearly said when two or more persons in emphasis in both sections.by the way,our constitution is tailored to match up with our multi party system.so when it comes to electoral matters,it refers to more than two interested parties.
I even went to look at the constitution.sub section 1 of 179 addresses the issue óf only one candidate contesting.its not applicable in imo.sub section 2 of which you erroneously quoted emphatically said two or more candidates.ihedioha is not recognized by the constitution.
|Re: . by famouscargo4u: 2:11pm On Mar 13, 2019|
slivertongue:. it is not about people's happiness. rather, it's about doing the right which in this case is to declare it inconclusive and order a re-run. The AA guy sure has a genuine case to present in court.
|Re: . by tuborme: 2:54pm On Mar 13, 2019|
senatordave1:I actually missed it up...two-third of ‘each’ is where one person is contesting....but where two or more people are contesting....the word ‘each’ was removed.
The constitution had Rochas in mind for that clause.
|Re: . by DMerciful(m): 3:00pm On Mar 13, 2019|
Are you sure you have the right INEC results for each local govt?
You know even Okorocha senatorial results were fake!
|Re: . by kelvinginzie: 3:11pm On Mar 13, 2019|
senatordave1:Because it is APC.INEC will not mention the cancelled vote
|Re: . by ChristianNorth: 3:30pm On Mar 13, 2019|
senatordave1:Then Appeal Court.
It is a lost case for Rochas.
|Re: . by bedfordking: 3:35pm On Mar 13, 2019|
wait till it goes to tribunal by the time Emeka don enter Douglas house than we can do re -run . all he has to do is have meeting with Ararume and hope to give him okigwe and part of orlu zone . I would like to see how Mr Nwosu won take win election
|Re: . by jumobi1(m): 3:40pm On Mar 13, 2019|
Yea I believe INEC messed up but that law should be scrapped or amended as applied to governorship elections. If 70+ people can run, chances are that the 25% in 2/3rd mark won’t be met.

|Re: . by senatordave1(m): 3:57pm On Mar 13, 2019|
tuborme:As you can see,both sections have 'each' in the criteria.the conditions for a single candidate and two or more candidates are same.the only difference is that where a single is involved and fails to meet the requirements,new nominations are specified.but for two or more candidates,a runoff is required.its very clear.ihedioha in the eyes of the law is not a governor
|Re: . by senatordave1(m): 4:01pm On Mar 13, 2019|
ChristianNorth:You are very funny.if the tribunal takes one month to rule,the appeal and supreme court wont spend up to two weeks.
|Re: . by senatordave1(m): 4:11pm On Mar 13, 2019|
jumobi1:It can be amended later but would still apply for this election cycle.by the way,its a good law.it makes sure the winner has a large level of acceptability within the state.
This is not the first time multiple and very strong contestants are contesting.in anambra polls,over 5 strong contestants usually take part but the winner usually meets all the requirements.same thing in ondo.the only time a candidate almost didnt meet this rule was in 1979.

DMerciful:You have nothing to say
|Re: . by senatordave1(m): 4:16pm On Mar 13, 2019|
bedfordking:A rerun will favor nwosu more.araraume is not that influential in okigwe.moreover nwosu can even offer him a better deal.okigwe votes will always be divided like south west vote,its not decisive.all nwosu needs to do is to inflate votes in ideato,nwangle,njaba while checkmating ihedioha in mbaise.in summary he needs federal might
|Re: . by DMerciful(m): 4:24pm On Mar 13, 2019|
Does it make sense to you that after almost 3 days INEC will declare a result not conforming to the Constitution? Common!
|Re: . by rex444(m): 4:40pm On Mar 13, 2019|
Wait wait, wait ooooh am not just understanding something here.
|Re: . by senatordave1(m): 4:52pm On Mar 13, 2019|
DMerciful:Court not inec.
|Re: . by senatordave1(m): 4:52pm On Mar 13, 2019|
|Re: . by Juliet11111(f): 4:55pm On Mar 13, 2019|
senatordave1:its obvious you are just senseless and myopic. So PDP can’t also inflate votes right? What other better deal can nwosu offer araraume? Even if there’s a rerun uzodinma would definitely work with PDP. You are just a kid who know absolutely nothing about how politics work.
|Re: . by DMerciful(m): 5:04pm On Mar 13, 2019|
Why did INEC declare the result in the first place? Are you a slowpoke or something?
|Re: . by Nasakwa: 5:07pm On Mar 13, 2019|
senatordave1:Oga come to imo state and say all this your rubbish, your body go tell you
|Re: . by rex444(m): 6:14pm On Mar 13, 2019|
senatordave1:is the op from imo state ? Is he an APC member ? I am just wondering why the headache on who won and who lost...let d sleeping dog lie na haba
|Re: . by singa4real: 6:20pm On Mar 13, 2019|
To Anser your question, Inec did not declare ihedioha winner in error with the following explanations.
1. He score the highest number of valid vote cast.
2. To ascertain if he score 25% of total valid vote cast in at least two third of the local government.
This calculation is applied:
Total valid vote = 686,037
One third of valid vote : 686,037÷3 = 228,679
Two third of the valid vote cast : 228,679 × 2 = 457,358
25% of total valid vote cast : 457,358 ÷ 100 x 25 = 114,339.5
Which 25% of 2/3 of local government valid vote is around 76,226
So pdp candidate score : 277,582 which is above 76,226
