Which one is ready made club, he loves challenges na, you shouldn't be angry about that and i respect him for that . He is a big player , so . ... its normal big clubs want him
So, playing in 3 big clubs that have won innumerable titles before he went there is your definition of challenge? Do you know what a challenge is?

Was he told not to play inside the box,
Was Ronaldo told to be jumping from one already made clubs to another to prove he is Mr new challenge?

Meaning Muller is better than Ronaldo. Dani Alves is also better than Ronaldo. Let's go by trophies.

Rape case is a serious issue my friend. Anyone that has the courage to come out and speak like this means is a genuine case. For a woman to come and say someone slept with her is not ordinary. Its very rare for woman to lie about sex.
Just like the women who had the courage to accuse Ronaldo and Neymar of rape which later turned out to be false.

so you need lawyer to believe what your bible tell you.
No. Accusations are different from the Bible.

We are not waving of the story as specious. We are only saying grave allegations like this require clear, credible and compelling evidence/proof.

Think about the Ronaldo and Neymar's rape allegations.

One day someone would accused you of something as terrible as this online, then you will appreciate why it's never too intelligent to draw conclusion from a single story. Let's hear from both parties.

INEC HAS THE POWER TO DECLARE AN ELECTION INCONCLUSIVE.

Will make this as brief as I can while ensuring facts are not traded in exchange.


What's the actual position of the law?

Pursuant to pages 22 – 23, Paragraph 4, Section N 2015 INEC Guidelines issued pursuant to Section 153 of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended), INEC is empowered to declare election inconclusive where the margin of victory is less than the number of registered voters in cancelled Polling Units.

This power of INEC to declare an election inconclusive under the above provision has been upheld by the Supreme court in the case of Hon James Abiodun Faleke v Independent National Electoral Commission & Anor with the appeal no: SC. 648/2016 delivered in September 2016.

One of the issues for determination was whether the court below was right when it held that the 1st respondent acted correctly in applying the guidelines in the Manual for Electoral Officers (updated version) to resolve the conundrum that had arisen on the 21st of November 2015 and in holding that the announcement of the election as inconclusive is not contrary to Sections 179(2) and 181(1) of the 1999 Constitution.

The supreme held to wit:

“The Constitution in Section 153(1)(f) & (i) provides for the establishment of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which, pursuant to paragraph 15 of Part 1 of the Third Schedule thereto, has power inter alia to “(a) organize, undertake and supervise all elections to the offices of the President and Vice President, the Governor and Deputy Governor of a State and the membership of the Senate, the House of Representatives and the House- of Assembly of each State of the Federation; and(i) to carry out such other functions as be conferred upon it by an Act of the National Assembly.” Pursuant to Section 160(1) of the Constitution, INEC has the power, by rules or otherwise to regulate its own procedure or confer powers and impose duties on any officer or authority for the purpose of discharging its function.” PER K. M.O.KEKERE-EKUN, J.S.C

Flowing from the above decision of the supreme court, it is very crystal clear INEC is empowered to declare an election inconclusive pursuant to the relevant provisions of the INEC guidelines. The exercise of this power was seen in both Kogi Gubernatorial election and that of Imo State gubernatorial election where INEC declared the elections inconclusive. Note that APC in both states were winning and had infact won before INEC declared it inconclusive for the same margin reasons. Imo election was conducted during the administration of PDP(Good luck Jonathan) while Kogi was conducted after APC won the presidential election and had taken over lower.

For Saraki, a seasoned law maker, Senate president and presidential aspirant to have said INEC had no such power leaves much to be desired and it tells a lot about the dubious and ignorant nature of Saraki.

Broo, what did the constitution say about election??.. Is the electoral law now higher than the constitution If it was apc that won, would they have said it is Inconclusive U r funny I swear.. All of you are really funny!!! Osun people has chosen adeleke.. Tell ur apc to allow Ince let the will stand and pls why was d inec oga in d state picking calls during collation and declaration of results??.. Una end don near

Your sense of reasoning is quite poor. I just gave you an example of Kogi election that was conducted under the watch of Buhari after APC took over Aso rock.

APC won but yet INEC under the same Buhari(APC) declared it inconclusive because of the same margin reasons.


In April 2015, INEC under PDP (Jonathan was the President then) declared imo gubernatorial election inconclusive after APC won it for the same reasons.



If this is not an evidence that APC had not done anything wrong, then you need deliverance from gullibility.

Really? Tell us about the battle of Kogi election and how it is different.

While you are at that, tell us about the battle of Imo election in April 2015 where INEC under PDP declared APC victory inconclusive.


Stop calling me names. That's what fools and unintelligible folks resort to when they can no longer make sense.

Do u really think that not all politicians are thieves? is anyone of them not guilty of embezzlement or misappropriation of funds? there are no saints in 9ja politics? the fish in the river can never deny water
You sound like an uneducated girl saying all men are the same.

Bros, we have some good politicians. Your expectation of them is just too low.

why should u guys argue about irrelevant issues? the only difference between APC and PDP is the letters involved. APC is PDP in disguise, all of them are thieves


Not all politicians are bunch of bastards and thieves. Some have got good intentions but have had their efforts stifled by the very many selfish ones and discouraged by some of us who keep painting politics dirty. So, when you think or say all politicians are criminals, you would expect nothing from them but criminality. In the end, you might just get what you want to see. The very notion that all politicians are thieves and dishonest is highly misconceived even though there are many of them who fall within that category. There are well and a good number of good ones in it.

We should raise our expectations, expect better from our leaders and we would see the good that would come out of it.

Kogi Gubernatorial election in 2015.

The 2015 Kogi Gubernatorial election was held on 21 November 2015 to determine the Governor for Kogi State. The gubernatorial election is to elect the governor of Kogi state; the official at the head of the executive branch of a state. The last Kogi state gubernatorial election was held in 2011. The incumbent Governor, Captain Idris Wada, ran for re-election against the former Governor, Prince Audu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress.


Inconclusiveness Of The Election

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared governorship election in Kogi stateinconclusive. According to results declared by the Returning Officer, Emmanuel Kucha, Abubakar Audu of the All Progressives Congress scored 240,867 while Idris Wada of the Peoples Democratic Party scored 199,514 votes. Mr. Kucha said the margin of votes between Abubakar Audu and Idris Wada is 41,353. And thereby making the election inconclusive because the total number of registered voters in 91 polling units, in 18 local government areas, where election was cancelled is 49,953.


Supplementary Election

The Supplementary Election was conducted on 5 December 2015 in 91 polling units across 18 local government areas in Kogi state. According to the results declared by Mr. Kucha, the APC had 6,885 votes in the supplementary election, bringing the total votes it received to 247,752, having polled 240,857 in the November 21 election. The second runner up, the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate, Captain Idris Wada, the incumbent governor, scored 5,363 in the supplementary election. Thus, PDP polled a total of 204, 877 votes, having had 199,514 at the November 21 election.

Now, my question is why is PDP crying now but didn't cry when an election that was conducted under Buhari declared an election APC won inconclusive?

When they lost and INEC declared it inconclusive, they kept mum and happily praised Buhari. Now that APC lost and same precedence has been followed, why are they crying and calling APC names?

Jaynaira:
Is this the first time elections are declared inconclusive? Even elections APC was leading was also declared inconclusive. Its there in the electoral act. Saraki who should know better as the very arm of govt that gave life to the act should not come here n play politics. The act says if the margin between the top two is less than cancelled votes,its inconclusive. Any of the parties stand a chance of winning if the cancelled votes are recast. The aim of the act is to make sure politicians don't go and commit electoral offences in their opponent strongholds just in order to invalidate votes there and claim victory. Fair to all to me. Stop whining and go prepare for the rerun.
where in the act please? And which act? I really need to know.

jayyem:
It's no longer news that the gubernatorial election in the state of Osun has come and gone but what excites me more is the peaceful conduct and strong participation of eligible voters coming out to vote for their preferred candidates without fear of any intimidations.
Security agencies and inec staffs must also be commended.
My take is if we can get this level right, it's high time the so called learned and educated people get involved in the affairs of candidates being pushed forward by political parties for various positions as this I noticed is where we do get it wrong as a people, we have left the selection process to hyenas and jackals, that's why when they push their candidates forward sometimes, we have no option than to just make do with them even when we know they've got nothing to offer.
In my own opinion, I think it is high time we all take keen interest in all this political parties selection process at least at the ward level, this will open so many people eyes as to how those that are been chosen to lead us are been selected and it is because majority are not even interested in who becomes an ordinary councillor in his/her area not to talk of chairman and the rest and they will be quick to blame failure of government.
Let's imagine a scenario whereby two political parties and both decided to fielded mumu as their Candidates... well... image the rest.
Please endeavour to visit a political party meeting nearest to you today, then you will understand better what I am trying to say...shalom!

It is so disturbing to me that with all this money and power, this man will die and be buried one day like all those killed in Benue. The mode of burial might be different but bury is bury.
