These guys want to rig massively and surgically too. It was tried in Ekiti and

he was the arrowhead. By now, he must have got his act in place with

a'' righteous '' returning officer in place.

We not talking about anyone else. THIS IS PDP

I'm not against him campaigning for Soludo, but heading his Campaign committe? Being a member is bad enough if you ask me, but, he had to head it!

One would think he was too busy running his own affairs as vice president which the citizens elected him to do, than running around heading Soludo's campaign committee. Like I said, it doesen't sound right!

They are all "criminals" indeed, yet being unconvicted,  possess the constitutional right to contest.

Truth be told, 99% of you people are criminals by your implied definition.

@citizenY, Spot on.

People should not underestimate the significance of the Anambra election. It puts this

state in the annals of history. For a long tme to come, Anambra will be a beacon for

democracy in this country. Edo, Ondo and Ekiti will follow in that order.

In the push towards 2011, success in these states will determine the direction of change.

It is very good for the polity. That is why we are looking foward to the elections. It will

show how serious we are with the electoral reforms, how ready INEC is and many

other indicators.

Anambrarians must put their best foot foward.
