Don't Sell Your Vote To Anybody or Any Political Party in the 2015 Elections

The most desperate political candidates of the two major political parties in Nigeria are already mapping their geographical strategies on how to use political bribery to pay for Permanent Voters' Cards (PVC) of poor voters at locations where they are not the popular choices of the voters. This the method of vote rigging that will replace the outdated misleading or confusing ballot papers, ballot stuffing, misrecording of votes and multiple voting by rented crowds of voters in the 2015 elections in Nigeria.

Vote buying is an electoral fraud. And desperate political contestants have amassed billions of naira to buy as my votes as they can from N1, 000 - N5, 000 per vote. And the highest bidders may end up having more votes than the opposing contestants.

States to watch for Vote Buying are the following:
1. Abia
2. Rivers.
3. Cross River.
4. Lagos.
5. Kwara
6. Kano
7. Niger
8. Jigawa
9. Adamawa
10. Kaduna
11. Borno
12. Plateau
13. Benue
14. Ebonyi
16. Edo
17. Delta

In national elections, successful electoral fraud can have the effect of a coup d'état or corruption of democracy.

Please, pass on this message and share it as many times as you can to all eligible voters in Nigeria.
Your vote can decide your fate and the fate of the entire nation.
Only a free and fair election will give us the best democratic leaders and representatives of our constituencies for the common good of all citizens of Nigeria. So, don't sell your vote.
Your vote is not for sale.

Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York and co-chair of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG)
  1. Bloomberg spent $50 million to create Everytown for Gun Safety, the anti-gun lobbying organization. He helped finance the Initiative 594 gun control campaign in Washington State and he is supporting a similar effort in Nevada. Others on the list are, in alphabetical order: 
  2. Paul Allen – The billionaire co-founder of Microsoft and principle owner of the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers, he dumped a half-million dollars into the I-594 gun control campaign in Washington State. 
  3. Steve Ballmer – Another Microsoft alumni and owner of the L.A. Clippers who added more than $1 million to the I-594 effort to criminalize perfectly legal activities in the Evergreen State.

  8. Nick Hanauer – Another elitist Seattle-area billionaire who launched the I-594 gun control campaign and poured more than $1 million into the effort. His deplorable effort to exploit the Pilchuck High School tragedy by sarcastically suggesting that, "We need more school shootings" was an offensive new low in anti-gun politics.

Nigerians Need to Change the Government from Abia to Abuja

 President Goodluck Jonathan shaking Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State.

 If you visit Abia state and see how the ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP) has messed the state, and yet President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife First Lady -in- Chief Dame Patience Jonathan are commending and applauding the worst governor in the history of the state, Mr. Theodore Orji, then you will know how evil and wicked the PDP is from Abia to Abuja.

Any reasonable person does not need any more proof to know anyone by whatever the person is doing and promoting.
When the head of state of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is promoting and supporting a shamelessly corrupt and incompetent state governor, then you are no longer in doubt that they are partners in crime.

To make matters worse, the President and his First Lady have imposed a governorship candidate on the people of Abia to succeed Theodore Orji against the wishes of even majority of the members of the PDP in Abia state.
The imposition of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu is undemocratic and the only way the PDP can win the gubernatorial election in Abia is by rigging, because the majority of the voters in Abia will not vote for him.

First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan and Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State.

From Abia to neigbhouring Rivers state, the PDP has also imposed former Minister of state for Education, Mr. Nyesom Wike as the gubernatorial candidate and in fact, the dictatorial First Lady of Nigeria has already started introducing him as the next governor of Rivers state even before the election! And she is bullying others all the way with impunity with her husband nodding in approval.
The Prince of Niger Delta politics, Prince Tonye Princewill, governorship candidate of Labour Party in Rivers State has already said the PDP will lose in a free and fair election. But heaven knows that the PDP is not planning for a free and fair election in 2015, but planning and plotting to rig the elections wherever the party is not the popular choice of the voters.
No wonder the largest donations to the presidential campaign of the All Progressives Congress (APC) came from Igbos in the south eastern states, because they are already protesting against the leadership of the PDP.
Lest we forget, the first vice presidential candidates of General Muhammad Buhari (retd) were Igbos; late Dr. Chuba Okadigbo, former President of the Senate of Nigeria in 2003 and late Chief Ume-Ezeoke, former Speaker of the House of Representatives in the 2007 presidential election that was massively rigged by the notorious PDP and in fact the winner, President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua of the PDP admitted before the United Nations Secretary General, Mr. Ban-Ki Moon, "that the process through which he became the president of Nigeria was faulty".
The PDP has never won any presidential election without rigging and anyone expecting a free and fair presidential election in 2015 will be disappointed.

There will be change of political leadership in Abuja either in 2015 or before 2019, because when the ignorant masses of Nigerians know the shocking facts of the PDP mafia, they will know how evil and wicked the ruling party is no matter the pretensions of President Goodluck Jonathan. But the sooner they reject the ruling party the better and safer they will be, because without change, the situation will become worse for majority of Nigerians as corruption and violence will increase.

The widespread violence in the Niger Delta, Middle Belt and northern states of Nigeria is caused by corruption, because a corrupt government cannot guaranty the security and welfare of the majority of the citizens of the country. That is why there are more children out of school in Nigeria than any other country in the world and the World Bank recently reported that 100 million Nigerians live in destitution with 60 percent of Nigerians living in extreme poverty, "when the nation pumps two million barrels of oil per day and that just 10 percent of the money, which the political leaders and their cronies fritter away, will reduce the poverty ratio by as much as 30 percent"

NEW YORK, Dec. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "Join marketing and media's movers and shakers to celebrate the smartest thinkers of the year - the men and women bringing innovative ideas to life like never before and stretching the boundaries of advertising. Be there as the 2014 Ad Age Media Mavens share their secrets of success. They are building the most interesting things in media. They are moving the media business in new directions. They are confronting media's biggest challenges," The Ad Age said.
As 2014 comes to an end, "The Advertisement Age" has granted the title of "2014 Ad Age Media Mavens" to Wei Zhu, the CEO of Miaozhen Systems. Being part of the annual grand occasion for the global media, Wei Zhu is the second Chinese citizen to win the award after Huang Hong. While, for the Chinese media industry as a whole, this is not only a personal level award, but a grand honor for the entire field of China's media industry. This also represents an unprecedented level of interest that the Madison Avenue has ever given to the Chinese media.

Because of such an incredible honor, when Wei Zhu learned that he had won this award, his first reaction was "pride." However, this pride was not for being honored as an individual; it came from the joy caused by the progression of this industry that he has devoted himself to. Being granted this award means that "The Advertisement Age" and the entire Madison Avenue advertising community have been impressed by the rapid development of the Chinese media industry. This award also stands for the highest commendation and recognition towards the self-transcendence of the Chinese media field.

Since Wei Zhu joint the Miaozhen Systems in 2008 as the Chief Executive Officer, he is responsible for the business development strategy and operations management. He is also responsible for managing the company's core technology as well as research and innovation. He actively promoted the prosperity and development of the company's technology in data marketing. Indeed, Wei Zhu acted as a captain of Miaozhen Systems, and took care of the strategic management and business operations. With his novel concept of merging data assets and mass data assets into the overall field of marketing, Miaozhen Systems has become the leading benchmark for digital marketing in China. In the age of mass data marketing, Miaozhen Systems is the first Chinese enterprise that targets mainly on the assessment of digital advertising effectiveness, which helps the company to optimize its digital assets and market value. This is why "The Advertisement Age" has granted Wei Zhu the title of "the most influential social media figure of 2014."
Throughout the campaign history of this "most influential media figure of the year" campaign, which is hosted by "The Advertisement Age," the majority of the awards are aimed at marketing and media strategists. The candidates were all from the global media and the winners were those who had devoted themselves into key areas of this global media market, with the spirit of fostering creative innovation, facing numerous challenges and reinventing business models. Over the years, Huang Hong and Wei Zhu were the only Chinese citizens to receive this award.

According to Wei Zhu, innovation represents the new combination of old elements. And for Miaozhen Systems, the novel development is based on combining the traditional advertising field with the innovative technology industry; by making them come together, a new industrial capacity will be created. Indeed, the attention that Zhu has brought to "The Advertisement Age" represents the major influence that China's media industry and the domestic media market has on the international domain. Thanks to Wei Zhu, and many industrial experts like him who dared to reinvent new media models and promote the development of media in multiple areas, this incredible transcendence could finally be achieved.

Hence, it did not matter whether people were competitors, advertisers or representatives, the industry as a whole was genuinely pleased and proud once they heard of Wei Zhu's achievement. Both the traditional and the new media felt happy for Wei Zhu. The fact that Madison Avenue has already paid close attention to China's media market comes from the result of a rapid growth in China's domestic media industry. When asked about winning this award, Wei Zhu is seen happily talking about the industry's future and development; he says, "there is no doubt that Madison Avenue has already paid close attention to China's media market.

Social Media and the 2015 Elections in Nigeria

Since the popularity of social media in the nomination and election of President Barack Obama, the power of social media has been proved and also effective in the Tunisian revolution. 
See “Tweeting Out a Tyrant:” Social Media and the Tunisian Revolution by Mariam Esseghaier

With over 67 million Nigerians on the internet and more than 127 million users of GSM phones, social media will play an influential part in dictating public opinion on Nigerian politics and politicians and should influence the 2015 elections, because the youths who are the most active users of social media are the largest voting bloc. But with majority of the youths unemployed, they will be willing pawns of the desperate political contestants who are ready to pay for their votes and in fact are already recruiting many jobless youths as "internet warriors" as reported in the international news media on the BBC and CBC.
Letter from Africa: Nigeria's internet warriors
Internet warriors: Fight for political sway in Nigeria goes digital

Some internet warriors of the ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP) are earning as much as N100, 000 - N250, 000 monthly per person to attack and malign Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), the presidential candidate of the opposing All Progressives Congress (APC) on Facebook, Twitter and popular Nigerian newspapers' websites like The Punch and Vanguard.

Social media will also be very effective in tracking voters and polling units and to monitor and report electoral malpractices and security updates at the various locations in Nigeria.

Will the Missing Chibok School Girls Know It's Christmas?

Over 270 Chibok school girls are still captives of the Boko Haram terrorists in north eastern Nigeria since about 300 of them were kidnapped when their school was attacked and razed at midnight on April 14, 2014.
21 of the Chibok school girls who escaped fro‎m their Boko Haram abductors have been awarded scholarships to attend the American University Nigeria Academy, AUN, Yola, sponsored by former Vice President of Nigeria and a presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, who is the founder of AUN. But the Nigerian government has given up hope on saving them and in fact, President Goodluck Jonathan did not remember them in his Christmas message.
Will they know it is Christmas?
