The video seemed like that of a local age grade election. Noisy and disorganised, you would never suspect that the men before you are 35 of the most powerful men in the land.
However, some things was clear from the video taken by Gov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun: There was an election. 35 governors present participated. They were no complaints there as they all took part in a rowdy but free election. And one more thing – Despite Jonah Jang’s early lead, Rotimi Amaechi, the governor of Rivers state clearly won.
Despite Gov. Emmanuel Uduaghan’s denial, it was clear that he served as returning officer, staying close and observing all that happened. The fact that he can boldly deny it now shows the character of the men who lead this country.
Watch, the NGF election that produced Rotimi Amaechi (courtesy of Sahara Reporters). We are yet to see the one which produced Jonah Jang.
