    Kudo to Dr. Saraki APC led senate. The senate should be applauded for signing the electronic voting process into law.
    This should send a clear message to Delta State PDP and their fraudulent lawyers,Election tribunal judges, corrupt INEC staffers and those corrupt returning officers that short change Deltans in their electoral process that it is not a business as usual. Let see how Ibori and cohorts will hold on to Osadebe House without their rigging machinery for which they have always boasted that Delta state is PDP. My advice to the APC, they should work together to field Chief Great Ogboru come 2019 election as their flag bearer since he is only one for now that break the PDP jinx.
