Prepare to go, PDP tells Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party has told President Muhammadu Buhari not to waste his energy on any “ cosmetic campaign ” for collection of Permanent Voter Card , alleging that the “ failure ” of his administration has provided enough stimuli for Nigerians to fully participate in the 2019 election .

The party said President Buhari, by now , ought to have known that such “ theatrics, ” allegedly simulated by his “ handlers , ” cannot help his “ self – destroyed public image ” or reverse the determination of Nigerians to vote him out in 2019.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr . Kola Ologbondiyan, said in a statement in Abuja on Sunday , that Buhari declared his interest to run again some months back without engaging in voter education .

He wondered what had made the President to suddenly realise the importance of PVCs .

Ologbondiyan said , “ This is a leader who declared interest to contest, months ago , without talking about PVCs or engaging in any form of voter education , only for him to suddenly wake up to the reality of the mass wave of PVC collection by Nigerians, which signposts the inevitable electoral humiliation that awaits him and his party in 2019.

“ The sad issue is that President Buhari has refused to come to terms with the fact that Nigerians have since moved ahead of him . He does not need to urge them to get their PVCs .

“ They have had enough of his administration with its associated economic hardship , nepotism, bloodletting , violence and killings , and are therefore eagerly collecting the cards with the singular aim of voting him out of office .

“ In fact , it appears that Mr . President just started hearing the drumbeat by Nigerians , expressing their dissatisfaction. ”

He said that the shock that awaits the President in 2019 would be unprecedented in the nation ’ s political history .

He called on the President to get prepared to accept defeat and quit office for a new President in 2019.

Obasanjo hiring tired players for ‘third term’ –Oshiomhole

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, on Friday made a veiled reference to former President Olusegun Obasanjo , who he said had suddenly become an “ organising secretary ” busy hiring “ tired players” to continue with his third term agenda.

He however said Nigerians had already rejected the former President because they were not ready to return to the era of the Peoples Democratic Party, during which government ’ s funds were shared to party faithful.

This, he said , was the reason the coalition being formed by the PDP and other political parties ahead of the 2019 general elections would fail .

Oshiomhole said this in an interview with State House correspondents shortly after a meeting he had with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa , Abuja .

He said contrary to opinions , it was the PDP that was being affected daily by mass defection, and not the APC.

He said if the ruling party could win the 2019 presidential election when the PDP was still united , it would not be difficult to win again as the opposition party had split , saying the party’ s founding fathers like Prof. Jerry Gana had since left it to form another party.
The former Edo State governor said it was funny that the same people who left the PDP to form other parties were coming together to form a coalition .
Oshiomhole said , “ Just few months back , you know that after their convention , a good number of people like Prof. Tunde Adeniran and Prof. Jerry Gana, who are said to be founding fathers of the party, left to form what is called the Social Democratic Party.

“ So , they broke out and when it dawned on them that even together we defeated them just four years ago . Now that they are further factionalised, what can they do?
“ They just want to capture power for the sake of power . And they said ‘ Okay , even though we have already broken the house into pieces, for the purpose of capturing power , let us come together. ’ Does it make sense ?

“ In the morning , you broke away from the PDP to SDP and to the ADC ( African Democratic Congress) . Then in the evening , you say you are coming together…
“ There is no better proof than that old man who is going round as an organising secretary , recruiting people , looking for tired players to continue with his third term agenda which Nigerians have rejected.

“ By whatever form they come in, Nigerians have spoken and they are not about to return to the era when the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and the Central Bank and security money was shared to people based on the philosophy of PDP, which is, ‘ Share the money. ’

“ They won ’ t do that . It is very easy for robbers to forget the robbery they have carried out , but the victims of robbery hardly forget . ”
The APC chairman described the party’ s victory in the Ekiti State governorship election as a good outing for him , having emerged as the party chairman just last month.

He said the challenge now was for the governor – elect , Dr . Kayode Fayemi, to ensure that the people of the state recover from the lost ground arising from the alleged poor governance that was provided by the current PDP government .

However, reacting to Oshiomhole’ s veiled reference to Obasanjo , the Chairman of the ADC, Chief Okey Nwosu , said the APC chairman was a factional chairman of the party and therefore deserved no response.
Nwosu alleged that it was laughable that the ruling party, which was pretending to fight corruption, could spend billions of naira buying votes in Ekiti State .

He said the APC had failed to deliver on its promises and had therefore resorted to propaganda in a bid to distract Nigerians.

He said , “ Oshiomhole is a factional chairman . We in the ADC are focused and organised and don’ t have time to be debating with a factional chairman . The propaganda and lies are no longer working and we are on a mission to rescue Nigeria .

“ Nigerians are now aware of the propaganda and lies of the APC. Nigerians have seen how the election in Ekiti happened . The Ekiti election was not a victory but a mere exercise of sharing N 15bn .

Presidency says Northern elders, others selfish, shedding crocodile tears

The Presidency on Friday came down hard on some leaders who recently faulted the way President Muhamamdu Buhari is handling the nation ’ s security challenges , describing them as selfish leaders .

Leaders of some socio -cultural organisations led by the Northern Elders Forum , had issued a communique accusing Buhari’ s administration of incompetence in handling the security situation in the country.

But the Presidency, in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity , Garba Shehu, said it considered the communique “ as the shedding of crocodile tears by selfish leaders . ”
Shehu claimed that the leaders felt alienated after a transparent and accountable system “ halted their disproportionate survival on resources of the state.

He , therefore , urged Nigerians to ignore what he described as the unholy alliance by the groups.

He said the groups were only stepping up their assault on the All Progressives Congress administration as it expands its national dominance and moves closer to securing an outright victory in the elections next year.

He said , “ The Presidency notes with dismay that the refrain about President Buhari not doing anything about security in the country had turned into the number one fake news item being peddled in the media .

“ The Presidency refers all the purveyors of falsehood to a State House press release published a few days ago and signed by the Special Adviser to President , Femi Adesina , which clearly outlined the government ’ s major achievements and initiatives in tackling security challenges from January to July , 2018.

“ The press release which was titled: ‘ Combating Insecurity in the Country: Lest We Forget – Presidency’ listed out ongoing security operations : ( 1) Nigerian Army ’ s Exercise Ayem Akpatuma covering Benue , Taraba , Kogi , Nasarawa , Kaduna and Niger States launched in February to tackle cases of kidnappings , herdsmen /farmers ’ clashes , among others ; ( 2) Nigerian Air Force establishment of three new Quick Response Wings ( QRW ) in Taraba , Nasarawa and Benue States respectively , and deployment of Special Forces personnel.

“ The press release also noted President Buhari ’ s approval for the establishment of a new Battalion of the Nigerian Army , as well as a new Police Area Command, in Birnin Gwari Local Council in Kaduna State , as part of measures to scale up security in response to the banditry affecting the area .

“ We advise Nigerians to read Adesina’ s statement if they haven’ t yet, or re -read it for better understanding of the efforts to ensure peace in the country.
“ It is sad and misleading for anyone to say that President Buhari had not responded to the security challenges in the country.

“ No one can honestly say that President Buhari is doing nothing about security . It’ s just a fake news item being peddled by selfish politicians with vested interests in keeping Nigerians incensed , and it risks being entrenched as reality if we don ’ t educate ourselves with the truth . ”

Tension as APC elects Osun gov candidate today

Dipo apc

Dipo

The atmosphere at the secretariat of the Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress was tensed on Thursday evening as the Osun State Governorship Electoral Panel from Abuja held a meeting with all the governorship aspirants of the party ahead of the primary election slated to hold on Friday.

The Chairman of the Electoral Panel, Abdulazeez Yari, who is the Governor of Zamfara State , was absent and Senator Ovie Omo -Agege announced to the gathering that he was representing the chairman .

The security arrangement at the secretariat was beefed up as police deployed two armoured personnel carriers with scores of heavily armed policemen on the venue .

Supporters of each of the aspirants engaged each other in shouting a competition as their principals took turns to introduce themselves.

Some of the aspirants are the Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives , Lasun Yusuff ; Speaker, Osun State House of Assembly, Dr Najeem Salam ; Senator Babajide Omoworare; Secretary to Osun State Government , Alhaji Moshood Adeoti ; Chief of Staff to Osun State Governor , Gboyega Oyetola ; Ezekiel Oyemomi ; Saka Layonu ( SAN); Abdulgafar Amere and Kunle Adegoke ( K . Rad) and others .

Yusuff said the primary would be very tough stressing that the Chief of Staff , Oyetola , whose supporters shouted and booed other aspirants , could not win the main election without the support of others .

Lasun said , “ The Chief of Staff cannot win the election alone and nobody can win without the support of others . ”
As he said this , supporters of Oyetola , who had been booing him , increased the tempo and started chanting R -APC , R -APC , Saraki boy, before normalcy was restored.

Adekoge , who was the first to ask a question, said it was surprising that there was no guideline to be used for the direct primary and there was no verifiable register of members .

But as he was speaking , supporters of Oyetola started booing him but he remained unperturbed.

The acting Chairman of the Electoral Panel, Omo – Agege, had earlier in his address told the gathering that the panel would ensure that the exercise was credible and transparent .

Omo -Agege said , “ We have a single term of reference and it is to conduct a free , fair and credible primary . This is not my word . We are very neutral . We are not here to favour any aspirant; we are not here to impose anybody. ”
