Former Military Administrator of Delta State, Retired Air Commodore Luke Ochulor, has said that the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof Mahmood Yakubu had ignored the concerns of Nigerians because he was afraid for himself.

He also said that the steps taken by those who are aggrieved by seeking remedy at the court is commendable.

The retired General pointed out that the controversy surrounding the conduct of the Presidential and National elections on February 25 is a clear indication that Nigeria is not making progress democratically.

Ochulor noted that since the return of democratic rule in 1999, the conduct of general elections has continued to get worse rather than improve.

He said: “I believe that the way we are going we are not making any progress. Those who thought they have won the presidential election are trying to justify it, saying that we can improve on what happened on 25 February. Now, this has been the same logic since 1999 that we will get it right. But it is getting worse. The question is: a student who entered the university since 1999 and has not graduated till now, what type of a student is that?

The Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate in Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti, has declared the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state dead, boasting that it will be buried on March 11, 2023

He hinged his confidence about the victory of his party in the coming governorship election on the poor outing of the PDP in the Presidential and National Assembly elections held in the state.

Speaking at a reception organized in his honour by the CY Nwankwo Foundation ahead of the March 11 governorship election in Abia, Otti berated the PDP for launching evil propaganda against him.

They have gone ahead to reappoint some miscreants they had sacked earlier as local government Transition Committee chairmen. I think they’re just reacting like a man that is drowning. But they’re already drowned and we are going to bury them on the 11th of March,” he declared.

Local farmers in the country on Saturday congratulated the President-elect, Asíwájú Bola Tinubu, on his victory at the just concluded presidential election.

They also used the opportunity to express their readiness for the revolution the former Lagos State governor promised farmers in his ‘Renewed Hope’ manifesto.

Tinubu had polled 8,794,726 votes to defeat his closest rivals, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Labour Party’s Peter Obi, who polled 6,984,520 and 6,101,533 votes respectively.

Addressing journalists at the town hall in Abuja on Saturday, the Zonal Coordinator (North-West) of Agro Commodities Directorate of the APC presidential campaign council, Bello Abubakar, explained that the President-elect’s focus on agriculture during his campaign was the motivating factor that spurred farmers in their millions to vote massively for him.
