    The result of this election has shown that Nigeria has gone beyong rudementric system of voting where a winner would be emerged before the election. The era of party particans, ethino politics , ridgging and ballot paper snaching has gone. Kudos to amiable prof of this time Jega who has made it imposible for election riggers to impose unpopular candidate on us. This is the Revolution we have been praying for. indeed, it has come.

    Dr. Goodluck E. Jonathan is the symbol of modern Nigeria. Kudos to him for conducting the freest election in Nigeria.

    It was mass rigging in my ward in Delta State by PDP..i witnessed it i was not told…No election in Nigeria can be tagged free and fair for the next 20 yrs..

    It is very unfortunate that some poor street rats are still talking of protest and fighting for their rights without provocation. In an election somebody must win and the loser must accept the hands of fate. We are not begging anybody not to protest. Ways of managing it is on ground. Many thanks to JEGA.
