The 2019 Presidential elections has come and gone living in it’s trails , electoral violence, ballot box snatching and burning, shooting and eventually death of some military personnel, youth corps member who are ad hoc staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC and some innocent and patriotic Nigerians.

Rivers state and Lagos State to my own rating witnessed the highest forms of electoral violence during this 2019 general elections in the country.

Rating INEC’s performance in this 2019 General elections so far, I must say that comparatively they have done well. Though there were few hitches here and there as regards arrival of their officials and materials at some polling units and the issue of smart card reader malfunctions.

eye witness report reaching our desk has it that in some areas where INEC officials arrived late, they rose to the occasion and accreditation /voting was very swift. INEC I doff my cap for you on this. but don’t pride yourself yet. you need to improve more on your service delivery to avoid the incident of people coming to the polling units with mats, pillows, torchlight just in case you people arrive in the night and food. Who knows some people might even build a house at the polling units in a bid to demonstrate their patriotism. Wow it’s really commendable ‘shaa’ especially since it is coming from an elderly woman and her aged mother. As for me i can’t be more patriotic than patriotism itself.

Well back to the main stay of this post. we have more than 72 political parties all eyeing a particular position thereby giving INEC more work than they desire. Consequently, election results came in their trickles, crawling like a snail on its journey to eternity.

Alas the results are finally here, putting APC in the lead with PDP trailing behind disappointedly and challenging the outcome of the results. Anyways, they reserve the right to do so, legally though.

President Buhari crossed the 15 million mark in votes scored in 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory. He polled 15,191,847 votes, winning in 19 of the states. His main contender Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party scored 10,782, 007 votes and won 17 states and Abuja. Buhari also satisfied the constitutional requirement of making 25 per cent in 34 states and the FCT. Buhari scored 15, 424,921 v
