Presidential poll: Buhari sues Jonathan, Jega

Retired Major General Muhamadu Buhari made good his threat to challenge the victory of President Goodluck Jonathan at the April 16 presidential poll yesterday.
There are also indications that forensic experts will also play a major role in the attempt to claim the mandate.
The Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), on which platform he contested the election, has filed an application before the Presidential Election Tribunal sitting at the Court of Appeal, Abuja demanding for some sensitive materials used during the poll from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The defendants are the INEC, its National Chairman (Prof. Attahiru Jega), Jonathan, Vice-President Namadi Sambo, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) for the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
In an ex-parte motion brought pursuant to Sections 77(1) and 151 of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended), Order 26 Rule 8 of the Federal High Court (civil procedure) Rules 2009, the party is praying for an order of the court directing the commission to seal all the Direct Data Capturing machines (DDC machine), ballot papers and ballot boxes used in the election so as to preserve same for forensic test in the course of the petition to be filed shortly.
The applicant also wants an order directing the INEC and Jega to produce for inspection and permit it to take copies of the documents/materials/ballot papers used in the election as shown out in the schedule to the motion.

  1. So if they find the elections were bogus, will this also mean that General Muhamadu Bhuari may also be a suspect on the Bombing of the INEC building? How many people were killed? Perhaps arrest him now so he doesn’t get away with this crap! So much corruption in Nigeria, its hard to say who the good guys are? Too many fraudsters, Scam artist and bullshit from political leaders to government corruption and crime all for what, the power of being morons and idiots? While the people suffers long term bullcrap … this must stop, we need someone strong, smart and for the people of Nigeria and not pay corruption fees to the government and political assholes including those rich people that got richer from scamming businesses and individuals from England, Europe & USA. We need a modern day Robin Hood to steal from the rich and give back to the poor. Take the assets from the rich, make them live just like the poor, that’s their punishment for theft, fraud and scams.

  2. Buhari is already a complete confused man. If BAKARE has prophesizd 2 b d vice pres, he is just a prpht of doom. Wat NIGERIAN want know is dat FGN should arrest and prosecute CPC, BUHARI, BAKARE 4 d pre & post election violence & d slained NIGERIA future leadr.

  3. So what is the meaning of this rubbish?
    Everyone knows that the election was free and was dealt with justice..
    But as for you Mr. Buhari, na your own u dey yan so…
    Even if the election is to be re-conduct, u will lose than what you previously gotten bcos of the lives that had gone due to you not to have accept defeat and embrace the winner…
    But sha, wat i see in you Mr Buhari is that ‘An Animal Will Always Be Animal’…
    You Shameless, Worthless & Unreliable Leader!

  4. But why can’t you advice your so-called Buhari to accept defeat..
    Is he the only one who contested for the presidential seat and unfortunately was not elected?
    Or hadn’t he rulled us before?
    Must he rule us again?
    The God who we serve in Nigeria will purnish you all motherfucker…

  5. Be aware that Buhari is a devil incanate, an inhuman that wants to drain all our blood or can any normal human being after the amount of blood he has sucked be bold to show his face in the public not to talk of coming to challenge the most credible election ever conducted in nigeria, may God deliever you Buhari. We must rise on our feet and say no to Buhari. You must do that even in your own little way.

  6. As far as I’m concerned the just concluded election was fairer than the previous elections I had witnessed in this country before. Whoever that is calling for cancellation of the election is an enemy of progress. If I may ask, why is it that the Buhari supporters remained calm when Yar A’dua won
    the last election? The answer to this question is not not far to answer, it is because the former was from the north and now the latter is from the south so Buhari and his supporters does not want him.
    Buhari, your going to the court does not scare us neither are we scared by your intimidations which your supporters ‘ve demonstrated by killing southern corpers. Go to the court, you did it against Obj and also against Yar a’dua and nothing happened. Same thing await this present one.
    May what you wish others be wished to you.

  7. I thank you all for your comment. But you see,in times like this,there’s no need of reigning abuses on Buhari (Manimal). All we need do is letting God do his will for Naija. But I no his is not Manimal ruling us. Thank you all for your time. B wel

  8. Some people talk without examining the weight of their speech. how you recommend prosecuting somebody without any evidence incriminating him. All allegations against CPC been responsible for pre & post violence was a cooked allegation by some identified PDP leaders in north. we know them with their names & tangible incriminating evidences against them. we are ready to expose them if anybody to prosecute anybody. If you are in the south or eastern part of this country, you need to clarifications from a real source before concluding on what is happening the north.

  10. let us leave vengeance or retaliation to God tro Jesus Christ for He knows our problems and soon all who involve themselves in evil deals shall soon be cut off from the land of the living. The country itself is not for one person but for all. You have ruled the country leave it to others and what do they think they will do now that they didn’t do b4. They should for their own interest leave this country b4 God retaliation fall on them all. To us who have hope for the future leave to God I say leave all to God tro Jesus Christ our Lord amen

  11. Again we shouldn’t put your hope in Goodluck Jonathan bcos so many Nigerian look at the word goodluck and depend on goodluck, that will fail us all. I expected goodluck as a president to remove his eye from fuel in Niger delta and put eye in science and technology. I did course titled engineering in society and was made to understand that the giant tigers of the world like USA, India etc don’t make name bcos of fuel as we look in our country. They are well known for what they had invented, if our president could have sure initiative toward science and technology in this country there will be job for all and engineering student after graduating from school won’t work in a bank. Why, all these is like putting a round peg into a square hole and mean it will not fit in well and that is the problem facing us all in the country. Also expected our president to bring experts from any of these giant tigers of the world to educate us in new science and technology

  12. when head is cut, is too late to cry.some people are stupid by saying that buhari’s supporters killed corpers in north.Stop saying this false allegation just because you are supporting the otherside.As far as am concern,people reacted becase of the result that was announced is the same with the previous ones which you people
    said were not free.Please stop spreading rumours without evidence from reliable source.

  13. I agree with you lts high time we shift our focus to other things that we make Nigeria grow and be classified our the developed country. Nigerians are too one-sided in their thinking and mentality always refusing to take responsibilities for their mistakes and ignorances. Lets pray for favor not only rely on goodluck. Also an advice for my President pls bring back the past glory of the good old days when Agriculture was the chief foreign exchange to the country’s income. we should stop putting all our eggs in the basket of crude oil. May God bless Nigeria and may His peace and love reigns irrespective of wat is happenning in the North. We will not give up on Nigeria cos she is our mother’s land.

  14. buhari and ibb should be arrested 4 their plan 2 smuggle 14 truck of wappons in nigeria 4 post election but thanks god their plans failed.we can be deceived again.enough is enough.they have over ruled us,we have know what they know.remember after jonathans 8 yrs,comes igbos,south then may be then,but 4 now nothlng 4 northerners

  15. presidential election was not free and fair. we all know what happens in bayelsa state. the number of registered voters is much more than the PDP voters in the presidential polls. and many people voted for ACN somes for CPC somes for FRESH and somes for dele momodu. we want know where the extra ballot papers emerges from? the number of eligible regisrered voters has to be the number of ballot papers deployed to the given state.

  16. If goatluck& nonsence samba with stupid jungle do what the think is right cheat d poor ones thinking allah will not capture their socold life and squize them?or a donkey will not stop eating grass&taking heavy load which will take him into hell. may allah be with u and all ur fans BUHARI

Most this stupid goat rule us?To hell with him and all his wicked plans to rule by force.

  18. If u like call him names of all kind, it’s u that will get tired. Goodluck remains our president. Ur quest for always remain as the president is a wild goose chase. Go and hug transformer if u don’t like it.

  19. HI MY FELLOW NIGERIAN,TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR ELECTION THAT IS ABLE TO BE DONE FREE AND FAIR,I THAT THE MERCIFUL WHO HAS DONE IT WILL CONTINUE TO MANIFEST IN OUR CONUTRY NIGERIA IN JESUS NAME AMEN,TO THE SIDE OF MR BUHARI,DON’T ACCEPT THAT YOU ARE A FAILURE UNTIL YOU MAKE YOUR LAST ATENPT DON’T MAKE YOUR LAST ATTENPT UNTIL YOU SUCEED,WHAT SIR BUHARI IS DOING BY CHALLENGING MR PRESIDENT,HE IS JUST TRYING TO PLEASE HIS SUPPORTERS HE HIMSELF KNEW THAT HE HAD FAILED FOR THIS TENURE AND IF HE DID ACT AS HE IS JUST DISTURBING PRESENTLY THEY WILL BE CERTIFIED THAT HE TRIED HIS,NO MATTER HOW BEAUTIFUL A SNAKE WILL BE IT MUST HAVE A TAIL,THE MEANING BEST KNOWN TO ME,ALSO DON’T FORGET THAT THE DOWN FALL OF A MAN IS NOT THE END OF HIS LIFE.
