    I see nothing special in this because we all know that definitely, obiano would retain the sole contestant for his party, power of incumbency will work

    These people will vote for Obiano as usual and he’ll fail them this time. Second term isn’t always good for Nigerian politicians, especially those who did well in their first tenure

      You never can tell whether they will vote for him or not or whether he will fail them or not when he get some votes into power. It is too early to speculate
