Nigeria: Election petition against president dismissed

Nigerian Times writes about the results of presidential election petition in Nigeria: “The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja, Tuesday, dismissed the petition of former military ruler, Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari, because he could not prove his case against the election of “President” Umaru Yar'Adua in the April 2007 presidential poll in Nigeria.”

    I just want to complain about the wickedness of Power Holding Corporation Nigeria in Bolorunpelu Town Ikotun Lagos.
    For over six months there has not being any electricity in that Town

    The transformer there is dead, and PHCN refuse to do anything about it

    They refuse to help us

    We are suffering , we dont deserve this

    We have complained to them several times, up to their manager

    Still they refuse to fix the problem

    People are getting sick and an old man died because of exhaustion.

    Some people were recently burnt by generator

    Businesses are closing because of no electricity

    Criminals and area boys are now in control, because of the darkness

    Girls are being raped everyday, and people are being robbed

    Please help us

    Kind Regards

    Chukwu Nnana

    Bolorunpelu Town, Ikotun, Lagos, Nigeria
