Bayelsa State governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson came onboard on the 14th day of February, 2012. His Swearing in ceremony was a package of economic plans and policies aimed at bettering the lot of the people of the state for the present generation and for future generations. At every stage of his administration, it was his mantra to creat jobs for the masses; especially the youths who were visibly roaming the streets of the flegling state capital, Yenagoa. Besides providing employment for the increasing graduated youth population, the Restoration government was also proactive towards industrialization, education etc. The media announcements and advertizements gave high hopes and great expectation in the government on service delivery. When a whoophing sum of#10bn was announced as a take-off amount for only opening of offices in London and South Africa, just to "woo investors", every thoughtful Bayelsa reasoned that the project was a write-off. Hon. Dickson brought together some of the egg heads of his Ijaw fathers to adminster the funds. The irony of it all, is that, the state government is yet to notify Bayelsans what benifit had accrued to the state in the #10bn deal is a billion naira begging for answers.

It is not just to be alive and to seat at a quiet corner in the society and remain ambevalent or unconcerned about whatever happen in the family, this is the obvious reason that caught the attention of many Nigerians who love this country coming out and airing their views on the electoral confussion that becloud Nigeria in what we have as election controversy today.
The leader of the INEC, Attahiru Jega has failed on his calculations to use an elctronic voting system with PVC cards and card readers that were faulted by the National Assembly as not prctically workable.
Beside this, a demonstration of the same in states and local government area including President Jonathan's home state, Baylsa has nothing tangible to show INEC prepatedness for the 2015 elections.
Between Jonathan and Buhari, observers have said that Prof. Attahiru Jega's North has been more favoured in the distribution of PVC'S. There are strong indications that there is another likelihood for the election to .face another postponement. Should that hapen, the INEC, boss is in a tight corner
