|Politics / Re: Fact File; Obj Vs Buhari (2003), 25% Is Compulsory In FCT. by stev120(m): 7:20am On May 06|
The true sense and how it suppose to be is that Abuja is not more important than other states, it shouldn't be compulsory to get 25% in Abuja. What if a candidate gets 25% only in Abuja has he won the elections? No!
Let me now be honest, those who wrote that section of the constitution made a mistake by saying a Presidential candidate must get "25% in 24 states 'AND' Abuja". Talk to me intelligent people this statement is clear and can not be twisted.
Instead, it should be a Presidential candidate must get 25% in 24 states AND Abuja CAN 'make-up' the 24 states". Simple.
The "can" as a probability has settled the issues of the conjunction 'and'.
Over the years how has the conjunction "and" been used in the constitution?
I believe the Judges will not plea that it was a mistake from the Lawmakers that didn't properly state the constitution.
Also, the Judges can not claim to know the mind of the lawmakers better than what the Constitution states.
May God help our Judges not to disgrace the Judiciary.

The Shock of our Life
I have always thought of making mama great despite how much bad life has been treating me, It's 3 years now, a first class graduates haven't gotten a job but some say it is not about the certificate but the artificate, the engine (think-tank) on the inside of you that matters. The good news is that I was called for an interview this morning well, being called for an interview isn't a new thing to me. As usual I packed my file, this will be the 12th interview in 3 weeks (as in, I done taya) I quickly drank a cup of garri and set out joylessly, and honestly I was angry just because I didn't use sugar for that garri its not that I didn't have the money I will be using the last 700 naira with me for transport and lunch. That's my life, I don't care much about break fast but lunch is nonnegotiable I got to move for the 8:30am interview.
Soon I stepped out with my white shirt, black tie, black trouser and my only shoes. I love black colors, I would have love red because my name is Valentine and red represents love, whatever. I live in Abuja, and you see, Abuja is a town that one can live economically if you want to, but the cost of transportation annually can start the foundation of 1 bed room flat, very expensive.
Before long, I took a bus from Bwari junction to Beggar, I was careful holding my pocket before I lose my last naira, (you know all this pick pocket guys nah) Not too long the bus stopped at the next junction and a lady showed up looking foiled, her Lexus jeep has frustrated her, she looks like she got to meet up an appointment and her car just broke down along the road, as the bus stopped, the following conversation took place.
Lady: conductor I want to pay for the whole seat (pointing at the second roll and I'm the only one sitting there)
Me: conductor where I go seat down?
Conductor: Oga abeg you go come down
Me: you say? (angry though still calm)
Conductor: Oga do come down, you know say passengers done scarce now, see madam where wan buy one 4 seat.
Me: Four seat just to relax (straighting my four fingers above my head)
I started getting angry, I looked at my watch 14 minutes to go, if I get down I will miss this interview
Me: madam manage this space naw
Lady: please hurry, I need to meet up with something,
(So na me come need to miss interview I said in my thoughts, this annoyed me more)
Me: I am not arguing, I just want you to understand that we all have target to meet up with, please manage this other space, I really need to meet up with something very important
Lady: do you know who I am, beside I have paid for the seats
Me: how will I know you, we are just meeting for the first time
Driver: Oga no waste our time come down
Me: I no dey come down if she no fit sit down here make she dey go, I said in pigin English
Soon other passengers join the conversation and supported me
One of the passenger: you dey do fine girl for public transport
Everybody: laughed out loud.
This hit her hard and she succumbed, coming inside she gave a very bad look, (eye me)
Lady: If not for my car that f***ked up non of you will see me here
Me: I no send..oo! las las I no commot for the bus
I got to Beggar and trekked to the location following the address on the job notifications. I arrived at the company, Crown Water Limited it was written well on the sign board but before I would make my way I saw a circular informing applicants that; "the supposed interview by 8:30am has been postponed to 10:00am Chai! I said with anger killing the ant on the circular as if it was its fault. I was angry because I invested alot of hope to come deliver, I have studied for this interview, l studied like one who has not prayed, and I prayed like I haven't studied just to get this job. Any way, let me manage. I hanged around.
I was running with my necktie flipping left and write, no time straight to the interview spot, I quickly joined the cue as the last person that just arrived, already I have started revising the responds I planned for certain questions if asked, not too long, it was my turn. I took a confident step into the office and guess who I saw, the shock of my life, the ajebo lady at the bus, in my 27 years of living I have never been this shocked. I exhaled knowing that I am doomed. All my confidence melted.
Lady: you..! (Pointing at me and making a face in a manner that makes me uncomfortable)
I was speechless standing with an assurance that I have loss this job.
Although, she was looking more adorable in the office, brown skin, her long hair, I guess she is in her 25.
Lady: hey! What are you thinking are you not here for the interview?
Me: emmh emmh

|Politics / Re: Lets Analyse Tinubus Remaining Chance Of Winning... by stev120(m): 8:06am On Feb 27|
According to the law, the winner needs to meet up with 2 criteria not one.
1. Majority vote
2. 25%. for 24 states and FCT.
Meeting up with 1 of the criteria does not makes a person winner. A candidate must meet up with the 2 criteria. If non meets up with the 2 criteria run off will be taken from 2 parties closer to wining majority or 25% spread.

|Politics / NIGERIA DECIDES: My Analysis On The Voting Pattern by stev120(m): 6:50pm On Feb 24|
This is my projection and analysis coupled with commentaries that are backed by personal observations and recent opinion polls.
If you're relying on previous elections to judge this one you will definitely be shocked on tomorrow. You must consider religion even over ethnicity.You must consider BVAS machine that will exposé the previous surplus figures in some region.
Also, since electoral structure have been changed, that is, the new electoral Act; blocking any possibility of rigging, the last card is violence and vote buying (which is a little bit weak).
To win the Presidential election the candidate must win 25% of 24 states and FCT.
So having majority vote is not enough to win. That is why a run off is obvious.
If a free and fair election takes place, this is how it would look like
*Highlight of Major Situations*
In the North. There is an amount of persons that are tired of APC and some tired of PDP this set of people have fall to Kwankwaso but I can't tell the degree of the population but I am certain that it is a significant number.
In the South, particularly southeast and south south, a huge number of persons are tired of APC and PDP and these persons have falled to Labour party. NNPP and LP will alter the historic patterns of voting in Nigerian.
Atiku has lost southeast and south south. Northwest is shared with Kwankwaso and northeast between Atiku and Tinubu's vice Shettima, even, Kwankwaso is present there.
To me, who wins more states in north central MIGHT become the president, however, if north central is shared a rerun is possible.
Borno APC, LP, NNPP
Gombe: APC, PDP, NNPP, LP
Adamawa: PDP, APC, LP, NNPP
Yobe: PDP, APC, NNPP, LP
Bauchi: PDP/APC, NNPP
Taraba: LP/PDP, APC, NNPP
Northeast is shared between Atiku and Shettima, of cause, we know Shettima can only beat Kanuri part of Borno and Yobe. Atiku have a better part of Northeast, but you see Taraba Obi will partake in the division. NNPP will do better in Bauchi but not better than APC.
Jigawa: APC/NNPP, PDP...
Kaduna: APC/LP, PDP
Kano: NNPP--APC, PDP, LP
Katsina: APC--PDP, NNPP
Kebbi: APC, PDP, NNPP,
Sokoto: PDP, APC, NNPP, LP
LP is almost not appearing in most Northwest states this is where APC intend to take the lion share but was cut short by Kwankwaso, PDP is relieved with the emergency of Kwanwaso. We see Kwankwaso shaking Kano and Jigawa, this might be as a result of the high populations of Hausas who might play the ethnic card to support their brother, Kwankwaso. APC and PDP underate him at their peril. Don't be shock if Kwankwaso wins Kano he remains the second force in Jigawa or almost draw with PDP. One thing is certain for Jigawa APC will not win with a bigger margin.
Meanehile, Kaduna is out as Labour party is taking southern Kaduna and making road into the northern Kaduna through Datti. If Elrufia works harder Kaduna can be a battle ground and PDP is not insignificant here. The remaining Northwest is scattering among Tinubu, Atiku and Kwankwaso.
Benue: LP, PDP, APC
Kogi APC, PDP, LP
Kwara: APC, PDP, LP
Nasarawa: APC, PDP, LP, NNPP
Niger: APC, PDP, LP, NNPP
Plateau: LP-PDP, APC
Federal Capital Territory: LP, PDP, LP
Here, religion is the card, we see Obi shaking Benue and Abuja as he drills a little through Plateau, particularly, Christian areas of Plateau. Also, Obi has taken the Christian areas of Nassarawa and Niger. Kogi is APC very non-negotiable. APC and LP will share north central, surprise right? PDP remains third here. Infact, I predict that PDP might not win any state in north central at most Plateau, but they could maintain second in some states.
Without sentiment, notice, for the first time northern Christians will be testing their voting strength. I can tell that Obi will get more Christian votes in the north than in the southwest. Meanwhile, APC remains strong in north central facing stubborn LP. PDP is no longer the main opposition here.
Lagos: (maybe, LP) APC, LP, PDP
Osun: PDP- APC, LP
Oyo: APC, PDP, LP
Ekiti: APC, PDP/LP
Ogun: APC, LP/PDP
Ondo: APC, PDP/LP
For southwest, Tinubu would have win hands down but religion has given Obi an advantage as many pastors are making body languages to suggest Obi.
In Southwest, APC will do well but not as expected, if you think that Nigerians are not sentimental in regards to religion then you have not been following Nigeria politics. PDP have 2 states in Southwest, APC have 4. both PDP, APC and LP will share Southwest but APC shall take the bigger potion.
Atiku will do less in southwest compared to 2019, maybe, for the obvious reasons, it is because, a Fulani just finished 8 years and another is coming.
Lagos is war scatter (like sharing) but Tinubu will win Lagos except miracle happens for LP.
PDP will win Osun because of Adeleke but this is now shaking following court decision questioning Adeleke's victory.
Although, in southwest part of the surprises is that, LP *might* beat 25% in one or two states there. This prediction is based on religious card be played.
Ebonyi: LP, PDP, APC
Abia: LP, PDP, APC
Anambra: LP, PDP...
Imo, LP, PDP, APC
Here APC has no appearance in Anambra state, that's an opinion based on observation, PDP are coming second with almost insignificant figures.
Delta: LP, PDP,
Edo: LP, PDP, APC
Akwa Ibom: LP, PDP, APC
Bayelsa: PDP/LP, APC
Cross River: LP, PDP, APC
Rivers: PDP/LP, APC
Since 1999 both southeast and southsouth have been voting for PDP, LP changed the narrative and this is a big blow for PDP. Regardless of Okowa being Atiku's vice, I predict Labour party winning Delta because of ethnicity influence. Maybe there are more Igbos in Delta, remember, I said maybe.
LP will win Edo with a fight, while PDP will become second because of it's a PDP state, structure will work here. While through Adams Oshimhole's influence APC will get significant number though remain third.
AkwaIbom is LP, Bayelsa is battle ground between PDP and LP. PDP has always win Bayelsa, Jonathan former PDP Presidential flag bearer is silent and the silence is a disadvantage for PDP.
Rivers, a G5 state, particularly Wike state, he has been the black sheep in the PDP fold. His moves remains unknown, but for me he is confuse and I think Rivers is LP, this is debatable but it won't go easily PDP will fight politically to win Rivers but to no avail.
I can predict that there is no block vote from any region except southeast and partially south south. Also, I can categorically tell that, if there be run off it would be between Tinubu and Obi except Atiku makes surprise victory in northwest.
But if it is between APC and LP then Obi need miracle to win.
Finally, surprises are possible, because of the economic situation of the country and APC Muslim - Muslim ticket; there might be high voters participation from individuals particularly Christian areas in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa giving LP one time escape victory. I repeat surprises that can give ESCAPE victory is possible. As many sees Obi as the Messiah.
This is my opinion say yours

|Politics / Re: If A Presidential Candidate Wins The Majority Of The Votes But Doesn't Have 25% by stev120(m): 12:22pm On Feb 24|
If a region is more populated than another and one wins the highly populated region losing 3 or 4 other region. It will be unjust to declare such person winner. President of all not one.
So if a person gets 28 million votes in10 state another 22 million by having 25% across 24 States and FCT. The 22 million guy wins.

Are you aware that in recent time, non party members that identified themselves as obidient where cumbing the northeast and northcentral, most of them didn't ask for shi shi.
Recently, some northwest LP leaders decamped, you behave like one.
But e go shock una, the people has decided to hell with those against the people's decision.

I know the north practice polygamy but I am struggling to put it into logic.
All over the world, swampy and riverine area are more populated than desert or near-desert areas. It is only in Nigeria that it is different.
Look some figures
Niger population is 26,516,733 as of Tuesday, February 21, 2023, based on Worldometer elaboration of the latest United Nations data.
While, the current population of the Republic of Chad is 17,667,893 as of Tuesday, February 21, 2023, based on Worldometer
What is the population of the north again?

If Datti can deliver southern Kaduna we are fine.
Election no be do or die.
Na APC government make Nigerians ment. Abeg avoid some kind persons:

If you're relying on previous elections to judge this one you will definitely be shocked on Saturday. You must consider APC failure as confirmed by all political parties, including APC presidential flag bearer Tinubu.
You must consider religion even over ethnicity.
You must consider BVAS machine that will exposé the previous surplus figures up north.
Northeast is shared between Atiku and Shettima of cause we know Shettima can only beat Kanuri part of Borno and Yobe. Atiku have a better part of Northeast, but you see Taraba Obi will partake in the division.
North west, we see Kwankwaso shaking Kano and Jigawa, underate him at your peril. Kaduna is out as Labour party is taking southern Kaduna and making road into the northern Kaduna through Datti. If Elrufia work harder Kaduna can be a battle ground and PDP is not insignificant here.
The remaining Northwest is scattering among Tinubu, Atiku and Kwankwaso.
North Central, we see Obi shaking Benue and Abuja as he drills a little through Plateau, particularly, Christian areas of Platuea. Also, Obi has taken the Christian areas of Nassarawa and Niger. Kogi is APC.
Notice for the first time northern Christians will be testing their voting strength. I can tell that Obi will get more Christian votes in the north than in the southwest.
Lagos is war scatter (like sharing) but Tinubu will win Lagos.
Lets leave southeast and south south Obi got the two region. Any other claim is self deceit.
For southwest, Tinubu would have win hands down but religion has given Obi an advantage as many psstors are making body langauge. Atiku have nothing really significant in southwest maybe it is because a Fulani just finished 8 years and another is coming.
I can predict that there is no block vote from any region except southeast and south south.
I can categorically tell that if there be run off it is between Obi and any of this two: Tinubu or Atiku.
But if it is between Obi and Tinubu then Obi need miracle to win.
This is my opinion say yours

You won't believe until it happens, I am certain that 2023 election is not for the Goliath.
I am among those that believe that 2023 is Mass movement vs the present structure.
I also believe that with the current INEC strategies 2023 election will reveal the robberies we have experience in past elections.
