Saraki knows he must step down as Senate President – Omo-Agege

According to Vanguard news, SENATOR Ovie Omo-Agege, weekend, insisted that the All Progressives Congress, APC still commanded majority seats in the Senate, saying Dr. Bukola Saraki knows he must step down as Senate President since he could not continue to lead the Senate when he belonged to a minority party.

He also said those that defected from the APC to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, returned to their natural habitat, noting that “These are people who never supported President Muhammadu Buhari especially in the Senate, so we are glad that they are gone.

“Those who are left now are those who will champion the President’s course. We have no regret that they (the defectors) are gone.”

Fielding questions from newsmen at a function in Emevor community, Isoko North Local Government Area, Delta State, Omo-Agege said the wave of defection from the APC would not affect the fortunes of the party in the 2019 general election.

“I can tell you it will all even out. As we are leaving, we also have people in PDP who are coming especially in a state like Kwara where those in APC left to PDP while those in PDP left to APC,” he said.

On the leadership of the Senate, the Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial district at the National Assembly, said: “APC has 53 Senators in the Senate while PDP has 49. ADC has two, APGA has two and there are two vacancies. Those two vacancies will be filled on the 11th and these elections will be held in our stronghold, Kastina and Bauchi. Even without these two seats, we command the majority in the Senate.

“The Senate President knows or ought to know that the right thing to do is to step down because there is no way he can continue to lead the Senate when he belongs to the minority party and he knows that.”

I will Never Support Atiku — Former President Obasanjo

vanguardnews-1533473770473

The former President and his former vice are clearly coming out to wash their dirty linen in public and we are here for it. The former Vice President who has declared his intention to run for President in 2019 presidential  election has received mixed reactions from the world. The former Vice president has engaged in public boot licking ever since he declared his intention, as he has engaged in bashing the current president and criticizing everything he has done so far.

Even before he gets a possible PDP nomination for 2019 presidential race, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar’s bid has already hit some heavy bumps and storms.

His former boss, Olusegun Obasanjo said Atiku should never count on him to support his latest bid to actualise his life-long ambition of being elected the president of Nigeria.

The Nigerian Way: Adeosun elected Chairperson of AFREXIM BANK, amid NYSC certificate scandal.

instablog9ja-1531639723151

Following the suspicion and investigation  surrounding the authentication of NYSC certificate of Kemi Adeosun, The Nigerian Finance minister, Kemi Adeosun, was elected during the annual general meeting of the African Export-Import Bank in Abuja.

She will be succeeding the outgoing chairman of the Bank and Minister of Finance of the Republic of Rwanda, Ndagijimana Uzziel. The position has a one-year tenure.

Mrs Adeosun’s election is coming amid a certificate forgery scandal she has been enmeshed in for seven days now.

MY OPINION:

How come they didn’t wait until the issue was resolved? This is  typical of Nigerian investigations. What clarification was given for this to be cleared? It is the reason people don’t trust anyone of you leaders. You don’t  really care for the feelings and involvement of the masses.

African leaders’ plague: 85 year old Cameroonian President to run for the 7th time.

newsroomdaily-1531631537406

In what  seems like a norm for African leaders, Cameroon’s 85-year-old President, Paul Biya, has announced on Friday that he plans to run for a seventh consecutive term in office in the October elections.

“I will be your candidate in the next presidential election,” Biya, who has been head of state in the West African country for 36 years, wrote on his Twitter account.

Biya, who came to power in 1982 when his predecessor retired, is seeking a seventh term in office that could see the 85-year-old rule well into his 90s and probably till he kicks that bucket. Is this an African thing or a black man’s thing? You are not doing anything incredible because you are all warn out, but you refuse to leave because of greed? The election which is to hold on October 7th, will either go peacefully, or just rebellious along with blood shed,  like  others in the continent.

P.s If no one is saying it, then Dear Sir, you need to retire period.

The election happening today  in Ekiti is going to be a serious one from the look of things. Right from the governor apparently breaking his neck after a teargas was fired by the police, down to him dramatically crying to the media while apparently with a very broken neck. Dear Fayose that cracked people up, instead of the getting their sympathy. I guess that plan went the wrong way. Well, the day has finally come  for the people to make their choice.  Stories reaching us says,  people have been owed in that state, and they still want their man back.

Breaking: Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun allegedly skipped NYSC with a forged exemption certificate.

pulsenigeria247-1530976798744

According to pulse Nigeria, the allegation making headlines is that Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, skipped the compulsory one-year National  Youth Service with a forged exemption certification. While many Nigerians  are harboring one educational secret or  the other, they all just head to a public office with it forgetting their secrets.

But today, Premium Times has reported  that Adeosun failed to participate in the mandatory service scheme  held in Nigeria, and for Nigerian graduates after completion of her university education in London.

Accorsig to source, She allegedly forged an exemption certificate many years after her graduation from the University of East London, reports Premium Times.

It was also reported that Adeosun’s official credentials show that she parades a purported NYSC exemption certificate, which was issued in September 2009, granting her exemption from the mandatory service on account of age. But even though the age limit for a Nigerian graduate to participate in NYSC is 30, but I have seen people with grey hair in that scheme. How come the Aunty didn’t do her own kwanu?  Well that is the matter at hand now, and we will monitor it till as long as it lasts.

Amidst excessive killings Nigerians dig out the promises President Buhari made during his 2015 campaign.

diaryofanaijagirl-1530180330192

The fact that this is shocking some people, is beyond my comprehension . This is the behaviour of a typical politician. They are quick to say anything sad everything to get your votes, and afterwards they are not going to be held responsible for not achieving those things they swore to do. Don’t be deceived once again next year. But how can we do that when we can’t predict the future. If we are not to trust any politician, then who should  we vote for? Who can we put out trust in? Who can take a different route from the previous? Should we still trust the one ego we already know and is seated there, one who has shown us his capabilities? Or should we bring in a different person who has no idea what is being done there, and is just coming in for the sake of it? This is a tough decision to make, but for what it’s worth,  think we’ll before making a move in 2019.

Awkward video: APC delegates mistakenly cheer PDP during their convention.

no thumb

This is the joke of the day. While these men claim to have nothing in common with their former party PDP, they seem to be unrealistic with the truth. Despite having left the party girl a reasonable length of time time, they are still mistakenly yelling PDP at the convention. It is suppose to be funny, but it is not funny even though it us awkward for the man and his  people who had to correct him. I hope they know that Nigerians pay more attenton to issues of the Nation  than they use to back in the days.  Don’t ever think they can’t see you and witness your public show of Shame. Some form of seriousness should be accrued to things concerning the leadership of a country this big. Stop playing with us.

Nigerians tag President Buhari “weak” for signing the 2018 budget.

-1528749607875

The issues surrounding the 2018 budget which was just signed on the sixth month of the the year 2018, has given birth to more reasons why we Nigerian youths were right when we said that the country was built on corruption. While the President signed the budget before exposing the fact that he had passed the budget since 7th November 2017 to the House of representatives, and “they took more than six months to sign it, after adding more money in billions and adding 6000 projects to the budget, making it difficult for to be implemented. ” said the President. The House of Representatives has boldly added an outrageous number of projects to the submitted budget, making it even more visible that something is very wrong with the action from their end. They have successfully added the whooping sum (in billions) to the budget before suspiciously giving it back to the president to sign, which he did. These projects were mostly construction of bridges and roads, which Environemntalist Nigerians are saying that they didn’t conduct any Environemental Impact accessment  on the sites of projects, and even if they want to claim that they did an EIA for the entire 6000 added project, then the time they claim to have used is too short for them to hav adequately completed it. Which  proves the claim that  I have always been making, these men sit in their offices and simply added this large number of project to the bill, padding money left right and center to it for personal rather than national reasons. These projects will not be implemented, they were just inserted so the money can be shared. But thank God  for a  president that is bringing political theives to books. They will definitely go to jail in future if found guilty for this act. The president said that the budget was passed to the house on the 7th of November 2017  to prevent delay, and for them to sign it latest on the second month of the new year 2018, but that obviously didn’t happen as the bill is only just being signed in JUNE of the same year.

For this reason, Nigerians have cried out to the President if the country, calling him “weak.”  After he turned the other side to the obvious criminal act from the house of reps, and went ahead to sign the budget despite knowing what had been done to it. He has been accused of encouraging the corruption he claimed to be fighting, not stopping the act right at that spot, to prevent it even going further.

But the president has equally come out to defend his actions, saying that he signed the budget to prevent any further delay in the budget implementation which will thereby worsen the ecomonic hardship of the crying Nigerians. But Nigerians are saying that if they have waited this long, they can as well wait for this criminal act to be resolved by the president.

The spokeman for he House of Representatives has said that the time frame the president gave to them was unrealistic for them to have signed the Budget. Saying that it took atleast 90 days for the budget to be reviewed by the house.

But even if it took 90 days to be reviewed, June is still too late for this excuse from the house. If you are to count how many months interval there are from the date of submission to the date of signing, it is over 7 months.  Nigerians are therefore saying that it took that long because the house members wanted to get everyone in, and bought over in the padding business that they all will benefit from. That was why they all took time out to Speak in one voice.  This is the reason why the president is now being blamed for signing it in the first place.  Everyone gave their reasons, and now we all are realizing that the padding that was done has made it almost impossible to implement the budget.

So then I ask, what then was the aim of signing an error budget? He should have investigated and slashed that budget right there  in the first place instead of signing it  to be implemented fast, only for us to hear that it can’t be implemented after all due to its weight. This is a ridiculous circle of unfruitfulness. It is now an aimless act they all did, and now Nigerians are very much aware of the thieves, but are blaming the president for encouraging this joke of a budget to come into a false existence.

Ekiti Assembly PDP member defects to APC

unnamed

A member of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, and Deputy Leader, Mr. Ebenezer Alagbada, has defected to the All Progressives Congress from the Peoples Democratic Party.

He joined another member, Gboyega Aribisogan, who had earlier defected to the APC after he was suspended for 180 legislative days for alleged anti-party activities.

Alagbada who announced his defection on Tuesday at a press briefing in Ado Ekiti said that he took the decision after consulting his constituents.

The lawmaker who hails from Ise-Ekiti with a former spokesperson of the PDP National Caretaker Committee, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, said he defected because Governor Ayodele Fayose allegedly reneged on his promise to give his constituency the governorship slot.

“We were therefore very hopeful when two of our illustrious sons, Prince Dayo Adeyeye and Barrister Owoseeni Ajayi came out to show interests to contest the PDP gubernatorial post.

“My constituency was therefore shocked and surprised when none of the two aspirants from my constituency was found worthy of support by the governor.

“Not only did he disdain them but worked ruthlessly to ensure they are manipulated out as the candidate of the PDP in preference for the Deputy Governor, Prof Kokapo Olusola, who was nowhere when we risked everything to ensure the victory of the governor both at the primary and main election.”

Alagbada said he had no difficulty following in the steps of Adeyeye and Ajayi, who had earlier left the PDP.

“People of my constituency who elected me into the House of Assembly are also aggrieved and have directed me to follow suit with my leaders.

“Consequently, in accordance with the directive of the good people of Ise/Orun constituency of Ekiti State House of Assembly, I hereby resign as the Deputy Majority Leader of Ekiti State House of Assembly and my membership of the PDP due to irreconcilable breaking into factions of the PDP in Ekiti state following the rancorous governorship primary. “I also use this opportunity to announce my defection to the All Progressives Congress forthwith.”

Sanusi calls out Nigerian ministers in Washington for shunning meeting with investors.

images (1)

Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the emir of Kano, has expressed displeasure at the absence of government officials at a meeting with investors in Washington DC, Thecable reports.

Speaking to journalists on Saturday at an investment program organised by the Nigerian embassy, Sanusi said Nigeria might lose investors because of tardiness and lackadaisical attitude. .

Audu Ogbeh, Ogbonnaya Onu, Lai Mohammed, Babatunde Fashola, Ibe Kachikwu, Kemi Adeosun, and Kayode Fayemi, who all had sessions at the event, were absent. .

Godwin Emefiele, governor of the CBN, Yewande Sadiku, executive secretary of Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission, VP Yemi Osinbajo and the expected governors were also absent. .

“For the person sitting in London and who has a billion dollars to invest, hes got Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda, Kenya, South Africa, you may be the biggest economy, but he may decide that rather than go through the hassle of investing $500m in nigeria, why not put $100m in Ghana, $100 in Rwanda, $100m in Cote d’Ivore, just to have diversification benefit and the benefit of reaching out,” he said. .

“We had a meeting today with investors, we were supposed to start by 9am we started at 10. When I came in they took me to the ambassador’s office to sit down, when investors were waiting down there. .

You invite top investors, your ministers are in Washington and they do not come to talk to the investors about Nigeria. That is not how you attract investors.”

Sometimes it is about how we market ourselves, how we package ourselves.
There is no reason why we should start one hour late, and there is no reason why the public address system should not work. .

Because at the end of the day, this is the first point of the country, he hasn’t even come to Nigeria so what will be his experience in Abuja and he is saying if I am having this experience in Washington, what will happen when I go to Abuja, when I go to Kano, how do I get to see the governor will it take me 10 hours?”
