Sylva To Challenge Result Of Bayelsa Governorship Election

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the just concluded governorship election in Bayelsa State, Timipre Sylva, on Monday said he would challenge the result of the election in court.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had on Sunday declared the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, and incumbent governor of the state, Seriake Dickson, winner of the election.

Addressing journalists on Monday, Mr. Sylva alleged that INEC and the PDP worked in concert to rig the election in favour of the PDP.

He said he had officially complained, prior to the election, that the present structure of INEC in the state would not conduct a credible election.

According to him, the INEC officials were assembled by the immediate-past administration to deliver the state to PDP in last general elections.

“I said in the beginning that I do not have confidence in the REC and the Administrative Secretary, that I do not expect a fair treatment if these people were to preside over the election.

“I said so over and over and over again. I even reduced it to writing, and we sent the petition. Usually before elections of this nature, INEC officials are switched.

“But this time, they chose to keep this team that was already in place set up by the PDP as rigging machine.

“This was the same team that returned almost 100 percent of all votes in Bayelsa to the former president.

“And we felt that these people could not have given us a free and fair treatment. But unfortunately, our cries fell on deaf ears. Yesterday, they proved themselves true to type,” he noted.

Davido Produces Result Of Sophia’s Cannabis Test

Embattled artiste, David Adeleke, aka Davido, has released medical papers indicating that his lover, Sophia Momodu, allegedly tested positive for cannabis.

He also released a photo of his seven-month-old child, Imade, having a “breathing exercise”, which he claimed was administered every night to help her lungs “due to exposure to second-hand smoke and cannabis-infected breast milk. Davido threatened to hold Sophia responsible if anything bad happened to Imade.

Sophia had petitioned the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons and other related offences, alleging that her daughter was abducted.

The petition, which was signed by her lawyer, Gbolaga Ajayi, of S. O. AJAYI & Co, alleged that the Adeleke family was planning to take Imade from her mother to the United States.

Davido had, however, faulted the claim, saying he was only taking his daughter for medical treatment in Dubai.


He claimed that Sophia infected Imade with cannabis during breastfeeding, adding that the baby’s life was at risk.

The artiste on Sunday released a pathology report from the Clina-Lancet Laboratories, a medical facility on the Victoria Island area of Lagos State.

The report, dated July 12, 2015, indicated that Sophia tested positive for cannabis.

Davido accused her of neglecting their daughter, saying it was the reason the child was taken from her.

He said, “Imade was in her custody for two months, unchallenged and uninterrupted, until the baby took ill in July. Imade cried ceaselessly for 48 hours. She was rushed to the hospital where her condition confounded medical experts. Several tests were conducted on her and later on the mother.

“Medical reports proved that Sophia’s blood was polluted with cannabis and she had, during the process of breastfeeding, infected her child with complicated medical conditions associated with the use of alcohol and cannabis. The trouble spot for Imade was her lungs. She had difficulty breathing largely because of the contaminated breast milk and the severity of the “second-hand smoke” of marijuana inhaled by the poor child.

“The medical experts at the hospital were enraged and declared the mother unfit for nursing the baby. The team determined that they would hand over the baby to the Lagos State Government. My family pleaded with the hospital management. Sophia too was sober and contrite. We pleaded that the baby would be kept from the mother and that we would take over responsibilities for Imade’s welfare.”

LEAKED: Foiled Plan To Kidnap Jega & Ruin Result Declaration- Report

As Muhammadu Buhari closed in on Nigeria’s presidency, an aide to election commission chairman Attahiru Jega sent a text message to an independent voting monitor, warning of an imminent threat to the electoral process.

The aide had unearthed a plot by supporters of President Goodluck Jonathan to disrupt the public announcement of the national election results and kidnap Jega in a bid to wreck the count, according to pro-democracy advocates and a Nigeria-based diplomat.

Central to the plan, they said, were Jega’s security detail and Godsday Orubebe, a former cabinet minister from Jonathan’s Niger Delta, an area whose leaders feared a change of power would mean an end to the perks it enjoyed under Jonathan’s presidency.

Orubebe’s role was to cause a disturbance at the headquarters of the commission as cover for the abduction of Jega. Orubebe did not respond to requests for comment on the details of the plot.

The commission, called INEC, also declined to comment and turned down requests for an interview with Jega, whom Reuters was unable to reach independently. Reuters found no evidence to suggest that Jonathan, who conceded defeat in the election, was involved. His spokesman and his party, the PDP, did not respond to requests for comment.

While the plot would likely not have changed the result, it could have unleashed fury among Buhari supporters in the north, where 800 people were killed in rioting after his last election defeat in 2011.

But the plot’s failure enabled Africa’s most populous country to complete its first credible vote since independence in 1960.
