  2. In any case stated and executed, Nigerians went to the polls on March 28, to elect their subsequent President and Commander –In-Chief, in addition to members of the Nationwide Meeting. And the election went easily in most components of the nation save in Rivers State the place violence took centre stage. Aside from the violence that characterized the train in Rivers State, there have been doubts as to whether or not voting really came about as the 2 main events have completely different positions on the problem. Whereas the ruling occasion on the centre, the Peoples Democratic Occasion (PDP) desires the world to imagine that elections happened in Rivers State on March 28, the All Progressives Congress, the occasion in energy within the state insists that no voting occurred. The election umpire, the Impartial Nationwide Electoral Fee (INEC) has nonetheless gone forward to declare the PDP winner amidst the dispute, suggesting that the physique was happy that voting really occurred. However time will inform whether or not this INEC choice will stand. Other than Rivers State, the election was additionally disputed in Akwa Ibom State the place the APC can be crying foul. Not a couple of Nigerians are anxious as to the credibility of the March 28 election contemplating the requires cancellation of the train in these two states. Rivers and Akwa Ibom states are historically the stronghold of the PDP within the south/south area the place the social gathering normally will get hundreds of thousands of votes, all the time giant sufficient to tilt the steadiness of victory in its favour. However with the caliber of individuals main the opposition APC in the 2 states, the PDP is just not anticipated to have a clear sweep as traditional. So, if the PDP is claiming close to ninety nine per cent victory in these two states, then one thing should be improper someplace, particularly towards the backdrop of the opposition’s insistence that there have been large irregularities within the course of the train. I don’t intend to dwell a lot on the Rivers and Akwa Ibom points for now as I don’t need what occurred or didn’t occur there to take away from the truth that Nigerians final Saturday proved the doubters flawed about our means to conduct ourselves in an orderly and peaceful method in the case of basic elections. In a replay of what occurred throughout the nation in the course of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, Nigerians, final Saturday trooped out of their hundreds of thousands to the assorted polling models to solid their votes for the candidate of their selection. In most locations, there have been no police males or every other safety personnel round and but the gang of electorate comported themselves very nicely. The place I voted, it was a pleasant environment all through as voters supporting completely different events/candidates blended freely and mentioned as associates, even sharing drinks whereas awaiting the train to begin. This was a far cry from what was anticipated judging by what was within the media and what the politicians had been saying throughout their campaigns within the run as much as the elections. The hate campaigns being churned out by politicians earlier than the election had been sufficient to trigger concern and gasoline the concern of violence on elections day. However Nigerians put the politicians to disgrace by their largely peaceful conduct on the polls and this requires commendation. By their conduct final Saturday Nigerians have confirmed to the world, particularly our politicians that left alone, we are able to set up ourselves with out their meddlesomeness. I’ve usually mentioned it that a lot authorities interference in our lives is the reason for most of the issues plaguing us as a nation. With out authorities interference or instigation by politicians, Nigerians usually relate effectively with one another, however when these folks come between them after which the difficulty of ethnicity and religion come to the fore. Within the run up to those elections, President Goodluck Jonathan will go down on report as one chief who used religion and ethnicity to divide Nigerians simply to achieve benefit over his opponent. Within the South west, particularly in Lagos, he used ethnicity to rally the non-indigenes, particularly the Igbos to his facet. This little question has sown mistrust within the minds of the indigenes in opposition to the non-indigenes, and the one harvest that might come out of that is additional polarization, which won’t augur nicely for peaceful co-existence between these two nice ethnic teams. Throughout his campaigns, Jonathan introduced himself as a candidate of the Christians virtually to the entire exclusion of the Muslims amongst his supporters. He additionally promoted himself as a candidate of the south combating towards the north. These are harmful paths to tread and I’m wondering how he intends to rectify the injury his campaigns have precipitated to our fragile unity if he scales the hurdle and returns as president and commander in chief. Did I hear you say Amen or God forbid? If Jonathan returns, it could be a herculean process for him to restore this harm. It can be higher for him and the nation to not return in order that we are able to begin on a really clear slate. The economic system is in dangerous form; our unity is shaking, and confidence in authorities badly eroded. We’d like one other chief to revive these items. These are simply my ideas and issues might find yourself that approach or the established order stays and Jonathan returns. This presidential election is so dicey that the end result might go both means, however whichever means it goes, kudos should go to the Nigerian electorate who defied all the percentages to solid their votes final Saturday. We’re steadily coming of age. How nice it could be if we are able to chase a sitting authorities out of energy by way of our votes; that can be historical past on this nation and a proper sign to the remainder of Africa that energy resides with the folks. However will the ability that be enable that to occur right here? I doubt. However can it’s achieved? Sure. No matter who comes out high on this presidential contest, the subsequent president of Nigeria come Could 29 has his work already minimize out. How he goes about it could be a perform of his understanding of the scenario. If he is available in as an ethnic champion, then we’re doomed. What’s required of our subsequent president is to suppose as a Nigeria and do all the pieces in one of the best curiosity of Nigeria and Nigerians. And his selection of women and men to affix his cabinet will inform us so much concerning the route he intends to take us. The way in which the Senate handles the screening of his ministerial nominees would additionally inform us the sort of Nationwide Meeting to anticipate in the following 4 years, put up Might 29, 2015.

    More Backlinks = Higher Rankings If you’re a regular reader of my blog then you’ll know that I’m a huge proponent of link building. As the data shows, this is one of the biggest factors associated with earning higher rankings in Google, and this is definitely what I’ve seen to be the case from my experience in running successful SEO campaigns. The chart quite clearly shows a gradual increase in the number of backlinks that a webpage has as you move higher up page 1 of Google. One of the traps that I often see people fall into is falling for the “create great content and you’ll rank” line that gets thrown about all too often. Great content isn’t enough. The long and short of it is: if you don’t have backlinks, you’re not going to rank.
