On to other issues, in the making of the very first handover of power from a civillain government to another civillian government in the history of Nigeria, the gubernatorial and state houses of assembly elections were held this past Saturday. Some results are out, but most are not. A run down of the results are as follows:

State Governor-Elect Party
Abia Theodore Ahamefula Orji PPA
Akwa Ibom Godswill Akpabio PDP
Bayelsa Timipre Sylva PDP
Borno Ali Sheriff ANPP
Delta Emmanuel Uduaghan PDP
Ebonyi Martin Elechi PDP
Edo Osarhemen Osunbor PDP
Ekiti Segun Oni PDP
Gombe Danjuma Goje PDP
Jigawa Sule Lamido PDP
Kaduna Namadi Sambo PDP
Katsina Mohammed Shema PDP
Kogi Idris Ibrahim PDP
Kwara Bukola Saraki PDP
Lagos Babatunde Fashola AC
Nasarawa Aliu Akwe Doma PDP
Niger Babangida Aliyu PDP
Ogun Gbenga Daniel PDP
Ondo Segun Agagu PDP
Osun Olagunsoye Oyinlola PDP
Oyo Adebayo Alao - Akala PDP
Rivers Celestine Omehia PDP
Sokoto Magatakarda Wammako PDP
Yobe Mamman Ali PDP

Contrary to what INEC said as can be viewed here, piece meal results are the order of the day.
Looks that PDP has won most of the states as expected..... For states like Kano, there is so much furor and the results are yet to be announced. For Imo and Enugu States, the results were cancelled due to massive rigging.. hear them... alleged irregularities (yeah right!) In Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola(SAN), won the gubernatorial seat in a landslide defeat. As announced, Mr. Fashola polled 828,484 votes against the PDP candidate Musiliu Obanikoro who polled 389,088 votes. AC also won 27 House of Assembly seats.

In Rivers State, Celestine Omehia polled 1,85,217 out of the 2,038,726 votes cast. There was a lot of violence in the State with the burning down of police stations and the killing of policemen and civillians.
On to the Federal news and the real reason for the last public holiday, judgement is expected today for Atiku Abubakar's appeal to the Supreme Court today against INEC's (read OBJ's)decision to exclude him from the presidential race. His allegations? Corruption. Anyway, lets hear what the Supreme Court has to say.

I'll be back with more updates- hopefully!
