Lagos residents  especially the non-indigenes, have joined other Nigerians to make their views kniown about the outcome of the March 28 presidential election.

To many of them, the outcome reflects God’s will for Nigeria, while others say it portrays the ethnic differences in the country.

While airing his views, human rights activists, Happy Ose Enegho, said that the just-concluded presidential election was free and fair.
According to him, if the election was rigged, the President would not have accepted the results, or lost power to the opposition because in the same way Nigerians came en masse to vote him in is how they voted him out, because he did not do well during his tenure.

To businessman, Uchenna Ojo, Jonathan had no reason to lose the election because, to him, he is the best President Nigeria has ever had.

“Everybody in Nigeria knows that it wasn’t a free and fair election; APC is not worth voting for seeing the high taxation they impose on people, especially to non-indigenes, but let’s allow the sleeping dog lie,” he said.
