Endy Edeson Online News can we call the ones in Sokoto, Bauchi, Benue free and fair? Even the ones in Benue is supposed to be cancelled because a returning officer was killed. We should be a little objective and shun partisan politics. Why do we only ascribe free and fair election to where PDP won? When tribunal favours PDP we call it fair but when otherwise, we call it presidential power

This is robbery, now won with that margin. Imagine one of the ward result I saw, APC nine hundred and something and PDP 04. Haba, imagine let APC and Inec fear God na...
