'Hard Luck For The Falcons' – Nigerians Slam VAR Decisions In France Defeat

'Hard Luck For The Falcons' – Nigerians Slam VAR Decisions In France Defeat

'Hard luck for the Falcons' – Nigerians slam VAR decisions in France defeat
Renard was ordered to retake her penalty after a video referral adjudged that keeper Nnadozie had crossed her line before the first kicked was played

The Super Falcons were "robbed" by VAR in their last group game of the 2019 Fifa Women’s World Cup against France, according to Nigerian fans.

Nigeria went into the encounter in dire need of a positive result, but Wendie Renard’s 79th minute penalty condemned Thomas Dennerby’s ladies to their second defeat of the championship.

The game was heading for a 0-0 draw before VAR awarded a penalty kick to the hosts after Ngozi Ebere was penalised for fouling Viviane Asseyi in Nigeria's penalty area.

The initial kick by Renard hit the outside of the post and went wide. However, VAR ordered a replay after goalkeeper Nnadozie moved off her line before the kick. The Olympique Lyon star made no mistakes in converting the retake as Les Bleues made it three wins in three games.

It was a decision that has split opinion, with many feeling the African champions were hard done by the Video Assistant Referee.

2019 Election: PDP Reacts To EU Reports On General Polls

2019 Election: PDP Reacts To EU Reports On General Polls

2019 election: PDP reacts to EU reports on general polls
The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended the European Union (EU) on its final report on the 2019 general elections.

Freshreporters News had reported that the European Union Mission (EU EOM) stressed the need to urgently improve the electoral process in Nigeria.

The EU EOM Chief Observer, Maria Arena said the EU final report contained 30 recommendations to improve future electoral processes in Nigeria, adding that there was need to address systemic failure in the elections.

The Chief Observer said that the mission also observed that there was relatively low level of voter participation which she said showed the need for fundamental electoral reform.

Reacting, the party in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, on Sunday in Abuja lauded the union for stating the facts on the elections.

He said that the fresh revelation in the EU report further vindicated the position of PDP and millions of Nigerians on the elections.

Ologbondiyan noted that the revelations of manipulations as detailed in the EU report further validates queries by majority of Nigerians on the elections.

He said that the world could now see that the PDP had not been crying wolf in insisting that the election was outrightly rigged with the alleged cancellation of millions of PDP votes.

Nigerians are still in shock over the revelations by EU of how about 2.8 million votes were deliberately “cancelled without sufficient accountability” and how several returning officers gave no reason for the cancellations.

He said more shocking was the distortions and “a large discrepancy of 1.66 million more registered voters, as announced by INEC on Jan. 14, compared to those announced by state returning officers during the collation of presidential results.” He said.

Ologbondiyan said that Nigerians witnessed, on national TV, how states returning officers were unable to reconcile result figures due to heavy manipulations.

He said that the EU report further exposed how ballot boxes were compromised, how essential materials were missing, how “voter register was not always ticked as required” and how “manual authentication procedures were not correctly followed”.

The report on result forms did not reconcile hown result forms were not publicly posted, how “result forms and smart card readers were not packed in tamper-evident envelops as required,” he said.

Ologbondiyan said that the report also exposed how security forces were used to intimidate voters as well as aid violence against PDP members.

“Moreover, the report has further reinforced the confidence of millions of Nigerians in our collective expectation of justice in the quest to retrieve our stolen Presidential mandate at the tribunal.

“The PDP condemns such crime against ouur nation, in sabotaging the sanctity of our electoral processes to frustrate the choice of Nigerians in a presidential election, must be brought to book and made to face the wrath of the law.

“Our great party urges Nigerians to remain calm as the truth about the election continues to unfold while justice takes its course on the matter.” He added.

EU Finally Releases Information On Nigeria’s 2019 Elections

EU Finally Releases Information On Nigeria’s 2019 Elections


Eu Finally Releases Information On Nigeria’s 2019 Elections
The European Union Mission (EU EOM) has stressed the need to urgently improve the electoral process in Nigeria.

The EU EOM Chief Observer, Maria Arena said this on Saturday in Abuja at a news conference on the release of the final report of the 2019 General Elections, NAN reports.

Arena, who said the EU final report contained 30 recommendations to improve future electoral processes in Nigeria, said there was need to address systemic failure in the elections.

The Chief Observer said that the mission also observed that there was relatively low level of voter participation which she said showed the need for fundamental electoral reform.

“Such reform needs political leadership that is dedicated to the rights of Nigerian citizens, and an inclusive process of national dialogue involving state institutions, parties, civil society and the media.


“This needs to be urgently undertaken to allow time for debate, legislative changes and implementation in advance of the next elections,” she said.

She, however, noted that the elections were competitive, parties were able to campaign and civil society enhanced accountability.

She said the EU EOM observed that the leading parties were at fault in not preventing acts of violence and intimidation by their supporters.


According to her, out of the 30 recommendations by the mission priorities were given to seven.

This, she said, included call to strengthen Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) procedures for the collation of results to improve integrity and confidence in electoral outcomes.

She noted that the mission also called for the establishment of requirement in law for full results transparency, with data made easily accessible to the public.

According to her, the mission stressed the need for considerable strengthening of lNEC’s organisational and operational capacity, as well as its internal communication.

She added that the EU EOM, called on the inter-agency body responsible for electoral security to work more transparently and inclusively, with regular consultations with political parties and civil society.

Arena said that the mission also recommended the introduction of a legal requirement for political parties to have a minimum representation of women among candidates.

The mission, she said also stressed the need for electoral tribunals to also cover pre-election cases in order to improve access to remedy and to avoid petitions being taken to different courts at the same time.

She said that there was the need to reform the licensing system for the broadcast media to provide for media pluralism and diversity in all of Nigeria’s states.
