Did i vote? No

Does my voting matter? It Doesn't

I might be convinced to vote during the presidential elections if my current research gives positive results.

Let me ask, since the first republic wey we do in 1963, how many people have won elections by amasing the percieved greater number of votes? if i can just be pointed to 3 or 4 guys who have won elections based on peoples votes i would have rethink, otherwise, INEC, Obasanjo, FEEDEEFEE, HAICEE, AENFEEFEE and the other parties can continue the rigginr battle. it is a sorry case.

if all of you guys writing here did not vote last saturday, how come you all come to the conclussion that election was rigged? instead of staying at home and concluding that election had been rigged, why not go out on saturday and cast your vote. It could count after all.

vote? the question should be "did i register?" well, i hadn't played soccer in a long time. so, i hi the street with my friends and behold, there were more people willing to play soccer than stand on a queue to cast a vote that wasn't counted. how do you think they came up with the results? census figures!

Yea i voted for Jimi Agbaje, though i kow that he will not win the election, i voted for him because am sure, if will do something great if he was the one that was elected as Govenor. I like him becauseof the quality he possess, he display maturity, he's calm and i just like him as a person, just hope that he will keep trying if this is really is dream.

I did not vote because I always consider my safety where ever I go. And the time it consumes before it gets to my turn really makes me sick.

If it can be improved I would love to. I considered a procedure some years back but when I looked around some of the key countries of the world I noticed that they still stick with papers.

Here is my plan:

To design a software more like the once that was used when we were registering. In this situation after the registration on the day of election each registered personel will go back to the polling station and over there their will be a machine which has been programmed to count and collate each party voted for. And on the machine each button denotes each party and at the same time the button would recognise thumb of each voter.

And as Mr A has voted there will be a form counter back in INEC office and the link will be through a broadband service at the Highest Peak of its speed to deliver.

And if every other rigging would possibly occur that will be in the INEC office.

It will be a Bye to excessive sheets of papers. All they will need at every polling post will be the machine and nothing else.

The only problem I have is I do not have the opportunity to be a programmer. I still hope to achieve that in a later period.

Funny enough technology has actually advanced beyond them not thinking of this kinda procedure.

Hopefully, it will happen some day. I plan to place the project to INEC to see what they think about it.

I'd rather not vote again. What does it profit a man to spend a whole day under the sun and at the end what happened? I voted only to see my effort been destroyed as if I am not suppose to be counted as a citizen. I was embitted because my right is not to be counted. And, just like Dat Nigga Raw will put it: it's simply because I'm not from Aso Rock.

I did not vote, there was no election in almost all part Enugu State. In my polling booth, Umu Adonu Owo Family Hall in Igbo Eze North LGA, election started by 7 pm on saturday and we were forced out of the polling station. Only very few were allowed to go where the ballot box is and vote. Every other person was told to go home and wait for next saturday election and so we left. In most part of Nsukka Zone, there was no election at all. Where it held, it started very later than 6pm.

All the same, i think my vote would have counted if i was allowed to vote.

May God help Nigeria in Jesus Name. Amen

i've voted, but i knw dat it is an exercise in futility because in naija our votes only do a little contribution in determining the person that wins. because most a tyms the leaders are determined b4 election by the some superior powers.i voted to fulfill all righteous.

i did not vote cos it wouldn't have made any difference, i would have voted if from the look of things my vote would have

i was observing a polling booth cos it was right in front of my off house no body voted, up to 20 persons who came there it was not their number, people where just roaming about looking for their number and when they eventually find it their names were not listed therefore they were not allowed to vote.

when i asked a few persons who came to vote and yet did not find their names who they wanted to vote for, they did not even know, they just came out of their house to vote cos in the churches and work places they were adviced to make sure that they voted as patriotic citizens.

but where is patriotism when worst of all people who came to vote does not even know who the aspirants are like one woman said to me yet she came to vote, if she had been able to vote she would have voted just any candidate who could also be a wrong candidate for the sake of patriotism, thereby killing the nation more.

imagine how many Nigerians are in her shoes who voted

JEEZ, i just pray we grow in this country.

make your vote count. It is those that did not vote that their will be used to rig. If all that registered voted, it will not be rigged.

I voted and my candidate (Fashola) won in Lagos. 828,000 votes all to himself, can you beat that?? His closest rival (Koro) got 300, 000 votes which wasn't even up to half of what he won.
