Why I criticised choice of Peter Obi as Atiku’s running mate –Gov Umahi

Governor-David-Umahi-of-Ebonyi-State

Notice: Array to string conversion in /home/obyoriji/public_html/wp-content/plugins/insert-post-ads/apis/vi/api.php on line 419

Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, says his social media critics over his position on Atiku Abubakar’s nomination of Mr. Peter Obi as a running mate are ‘uninformed.’

Umahi made the assertion on Tuesday in Abakaliki while addressing newsmen after signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations Development Programme on socio-economic development.

The governor, who is the Chairman of the South East Governors’ Forum, condemned the critics.

He said, “Nobody is against Peter Obi, because he is my friend, competent and you must have seen our pictures together on the social media.”

Umahi explained that  South-East leaders were not consulted in making the decision on Obi’s nomination, while no one from Ebonyi and Imo states made the list of the running mate nominees.

“We must take decisions against the marginalisation of Ebonyi people because if we have to vote, we must be treated with equity.

“Two names of the nominees came from Anambra, two from Abia and one from Enugu, but none came from Ebonyi and Imo.

“What is wrong with somebody from Ebonyi and Imo? If you must know, one of the reasons an Ebonyi man is against regions in the country is the fear of further marginalisation,” he added.

Umahi maintained that southeast leaders must sit with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party and that, if all must work together, the leaders must be part of the decision making.

“I am talking about the southeast people and if six people can come from other regions and take decisions, there must be somebody from the southeast zone.

“There is nothing like the southeast governor’s stand on the matter; but we are only saying that when decisions are taken and people from other regions are invited, those from the southeast must be invited.

“The southeast leaders never issued any statement on the matter and anybody from the zone who says that our stand is not good, is not a human being,” he said.

The governor remarked that if Atiku just picked his running mate without people from other regions seeing the list and making choices, there could have been no complaints.

“Nobody chooses the vice president for anybody; it is just like a wife issue; but if other people were on the list, people from Ebonyi should be there.

“Even if we would not make the list — as the choice is for Abubakar to make — we should know what disqualifies us from being picked,” he argued further.

“I cannot endorse Obi alone and I’m confident that in further decisions, the Igbo man must be consulted.

“If the position I had was my sin, I cannot repent from it,” he said.

The governor, however, urged the UNDP team to ensure the implementation of the MoU to sustain the gains of the Sustainable Development Goals in the state.

Dr. Samuel Bwalya, the UNDP Country Representative in Nigeria, explained that SDG dwelt on 17 goals with 169 targets aimed at eradicating poverty in UNDP-benefiting states and countries.

“UNDP focuses on governance, peace and conflict resolution, inclusive growth, job creation, environmental management and strategic support for the next five years of its intervention in Ebonyi.

Fayemi sworn in, says Fayose’s govt was an error

Fayemi

 

The Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress, has said the arrival of his government marks the end of the past administration which he described as an “error”.

The state Chief Judge, Ayodeji Daramola, administered the Oath of Allegiance and Oath of Office on Fayemi at about 12:20 pm. Fayemi’s deputy, Chief Bisi Egbeyemi, had earlier taken his oath at about 12:07 pm.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Fayemi as the winner of the July 14 governorship election.

The results indicated that Fayemi polled 197,459 votes while his closest rival and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, got 178,121 votes.

Fayemi noted that his government would review the financial status of the state with a rising debt, which he put at N170bn under the PDP-led government of Governor Ayodele Fayose.

Fayose had repeatedly denied borrowing money claiming the state’s debt was incurred by the previous government of Fayemi during his first term.

The governor said, “As much as today marks the beginning of a new phase in our history as a people, it also signals the end of an era, or more appropriately, the end of an error. Without a doubt, Ekiti has been through a terrible wilderness experience within the last four years,” he said.

“Our reputation as a people has been soiled and we have become the pot of jokes due to the ineptitude, loquacious ignorance and ravenous corruption masquerading as governance in our state during the last administration.

“As we assume office, it is our duty, and we will live up to it, to ensure we thoroughly review,  document, and widely disseminate the present state of affairs so that all and sundry can know what has become of our commonwealth.

“Independently verifiable preliminary findings indicate that we have been plunged into a debt abyss of over N170bn, with commitments to innumerable white elephants, an average of eight months’ salaries owed across government entities, and many state assets unaccounted for.”

“We will ensure that within 100 days from today, Ekiti Kete will know the true position of things, in keeping with our ethos of transparency and accountability in governance. We are not interested in trials by media, witch hunt or playing to the gallery. We will seek out the truth and lay it before our people.”

The former Minister stated that Ekiti under him won’t degenerate to the level of allowing schoolchildren to pay various taxes in their quests to receive a formal education.

He promised that his government would reinstate the N5,000 social security to the elderly and make tremendous positive impacts in the areas of agriculture, social investment and economy.

My Opinion

Talk is always cheap, and criticising the previous regime is even cheaper,  but we can only watch and see.

2019 presidency: I did not endorse Atiku — OYEDEPO

oyedepo

Contrary to the believe that was  created by the presidential to the general public, Living Faith Church or  Winners Chapel, head Bishop David Oyedepo, yesterday denied endorsing the very bold Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar,  for the 2019 presidential election.

In His words: “The recent killings in Plateau State is a moral assault on our nation. Nobody is qualified to be morally right, if he does not have feelings for loss of lives. I know how many times I cried over the killings in Nigeria. Some people claimed responsibility and nothing happened to them.

“The effect of the 30 months civil war is still with us. We won’t see war again in Nigeria. Those who want to see it, will be cut down.”

My Opinion:

Why is the presidential candidate so kin on giving the impression that everyone is on the same side with him? If you pay people a visit and they have no option than to honour it, it is not called endorsement,  it is called respect for you.  Don’t go concluding and interpreting things to suit you. A lot of Nigerians, whether significant or ordinary, have endorsed you. So don’t bother forcing others to do the same for you.  Everyone one must have a preference, which they sometimes will never speak of, or publicly admit. You making these sort of statements will for them to deny you even if they low key would have wanted to give you a chance. Let the rule of law take its time.

Atiku ‘ll not do better than Buhari—Balarebe Musa

images

Musa said: “Nigerians risk having a fascist government under Atiku because of his open alignment with former heads of state and retired generals, who have some questions to answer.

Ignore election noise, Buhari tells ministers

“That is why I am highly disappointed at the illusion by some Nigerians that Atiku is better than Buhari. There is absolutely no comparison between Buhari and Atiku.

“Former heads of state, retired generals and PDP are afraid of  Buhari’s second term bid. These people and the PDP are mortally afraid that if Buhari returned, he would probe the criminal annulment of June 12 and wage a more ruthless war against corruption.

“They are clearly ganging up against Buhari not because they don’t know that Atiku is no match to him but because they are aware that Atiku will not revisit their past misdeeds.

“Atiku should ask himself whether Obasanjo can easily forgive him and mobilise his part of the country for his victory in 2019.’’

My take:
Why are these retired generals after frosting a constitution on us also believe it is their rights to choose who leads us. I guess they met their match in Buhari. As for your so called *men of God* dabbling into politics, we know that *”Tithes are tight”*, patronage low and the private jets and luxurious lifestyles needs maintenance ditto the the traditional rulers. Isn’t it time the masses see through the charade? I believe Buhari is their nemesis after which a New Nigeria will emerge.

Atiku pays a visit to the Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace Justin Welby.

aatiku-1539550972814

Just when you think that the Presidential candidate can not go any deeper with his desperation,  he goes ahead and manages to do something higher.

Why should he be paying the ArchBishop a visit when he is not a Christian? What on earth was he disussing with the man, when he is not a Nigerian? Is this still part of his campaign? Suddenly you love the Igbos and the Christians? What then happens to this same people after you have won? They are thrown aside and tagged the problem of the Nation, deprived of social amenities and made to protest the injustice thrown at them? Will this be the same case we suffered last four years, when the president openly backed up his impartial ruling with the excuse that the Northerners voted for him., or the case where the  President protects his own people who have stolen outrageous amounts of money, while bringing to book their counterparts who are from the South East and PDP. Another election period has come and they are going about dressing in various tribal attires, giving the impression that they are for everybody and for no one. Well, while all of these are going on,  Nigerians need to be vigilante. After posting the photos with the Archbishop,  he caption it..

From @aatiku – I had the pleasure of meeting with the Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace Justin Welby. We had very positive deliberations.
#LetsGetNigeriaWorkingAgain

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Gives a candid speech at UN Summit at Mauritania about President Muhammadu Buhari.

IMG-20181013-WA0001

2019 presidential election is fast approaching, the enemies of this nation are uniting, they are planning to come back to power and hold this country unto ransom once again.

The media are angry. why? There is no more free money from the government.
The Ex- generals are murmuring . Why? There is no sign President Buhari will renew there oil nock contract. Social cultural groups are grumbling. Why? No more Ghana must go bags to support Buhari. The Royal Fathers are shouting.why? Buhari did not pay homage with cars and cash gifts. The legislators are not cooperating. Why? No more budget padding and bribes before passing of the budgets. Corrupt religious leaders are lamenting. Why? No ore shady arms contracts.

Corrupt civil servants are not supportive. Why? No more corrupt practices. BVN and TSA have exposed their sharp practices. The spoilt kids are bitter. Why? PMB has made people to understand that their parents are not that rich. Having realised the set of people that want to set this country ablaze because of their controversial ways of living. I pray that the Almighty God should help President Muhammadu Buhari overcome all these obstacles and take Nigeria to the promised land saviour. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN WE STAND WITH A MAN OF HONOUR, CHARACTER AND INTEGRITY.

My Opinion

I have always known that since I don’t interact with president Buhari on a one on one level, and since he has been dealing with the corrupt menace nd women of this nation, we are bound to only hear of the evil he is said to have done, because his voice compared to that of the countless evil men and women of this country,  will always seem silent and weak. Imagine Atiku coming to us with the ability to create jobs.  How many private businesses does Atiku have, and how many people has he given jobs to on his small level?  It is no longer enough for you to just say all your mouth  can  make out to us. This is not a generation of retards and cowards, and no longer game as usual. If a leader who says he is about to change the situation of the country, is already starting his process by giving out $5k to delegates who are a small number, juSt of get the primaries, them.we are literally taking our Country back to the very depth of corruption we all dread, and resent  with all of our might. I have flagged off the very first red flag against Atiku. It is not that era no more. You are doing too much already, and that doesn’t speak well of you. I loved the he picked an igbo, but what is his plan for the igbos?  For the yourubas,  for the country and it’s Children children?  Don’t play the tribe card like you know. Buhari is not doing a good job with development, but with corruption,  he is doing something significant.

NYSC: Buhari expecting communications minister’s resignation – Source

punchnewspapers-1539423867248

President Muhammadu Buhari is expecting the resignation of the Minister of Communications, Alhaji Adebayo Shittu, over his failure to participate in the mandatory one-year National Youth Service Corps scheme, Saturday PUNCH has learnt.

The minister had failed to participate in the scheme after his graduation from the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University), Osun State.

He had in an interview said he believed having been elected a lawmaker shortly after his graduation, he needed not to participate in the national service because his membership of the state assembly was itself a “service.”

But the leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress had recently disqualified him from contesting for the party’s governorship ticket in Oyo State based on the issue.

Meanwhile, top sources in the government told our correspondent on Friday that President Muhammadu Buhari had also asked the embattled minister to do the “needful.”

One of the sources said Buhari had made it clear that the minister did not have to wait for him (the President) to act before doing the proper thing in this instance.

He said, “The truth is that the President has made his position known to the minister and there are witnesses.

“What the President said was that people should not be waiting for him to act the way he did in the case of a former Minister of Finance (Mrs Kemi Adeosun) before they do what is needful.

“I am sure he is very clear on the matter the way he addressed the issue, and the minister understands this.”

The presidential spokesmen, Garba Shehu and Femi Adesina, could not be reached on the telephone for comment as of the time of filing this report on Friday.

When contacted on the telephone on Friday, the minister told our correspondent that he would speak with our correspondent next week.

When asked if the President had asked him to do the needful on the matter, Shittu said, “I am hearing that from you.”

My Opinion; 

The drama never ends in this part of the world, and this is the same thing happening here

The dreaded trend is back as Man treks from Zaria to Abuja for Atiku.

punchnewspapers-1539119856819

A young man, Kamaludden Bashir, has commenced trekking from Zaria to Abuja to show his support for the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Bashir, on Tuesday, told newsmen that he plans to reach Abuja within five days

“I am really happy with the victory, that is why I am trekking to Abuja to show him that I am with him 100 per cent.

“Along the way, I will sensitize thousands of youth to join me in the campaign to make Nigeria great under Atiku as president.

“I believe that only him can overcome the problems of unemployment, poverty, insecurity, communal and ethno-religious crisis disturbing the peace and stability of the country.

According to him, he left Kwarbai area of Zaria at 6:30am on Monday after his parents prayed for him.

Bashir believed that Abubakar’s structures all over the country were strong enough to push for his election in February.

“I believe in Atiku, that is why I am trekking in solidarity and praying for him to win the 2019 presidential election.

“I believe he is the best man that can fight corruption and take Nigerian youths to the promised land.”

According to him, he was robbed of his money, food and water along the way, but said the experience would not deter him from continuing with the journey. .
Bashir urged Nigerian youths to support the former vice president during the general elections so as to put Nigeria in a better direction.

My Opinion

Who would have thought that after the state of insufficiency incompetency and deep poverty,  and World wide object of mockery that Nigerians have been placed in, by these same circle of ever power hungry old men, that someone in their right frame of mind would actually get up and start this stupid trek trend. The reason why these politicians have the power they have to confidently do all the corruption enabling activities and still come out in public to get worshipped by their victims.. such a sad circle of fortunate men. They are just lucky to be in Africa, where corruption is the everything. . #simple.

Nigerians’ll choose between lifeless candidate and job provider in 2019 – Atiku

punchnewspapers-1539077303766

The Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate in the February 14, 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, has said his emergence has brought confusion to the camp of his All Progressives Congress counterpart, President Muhammadu Buhari.

The statement said, “We are not surprised that there is confusion in the President’s camp. We expected that they would be thrown into a catatonic state knowing that Atiku Abubabakr’s emergence automatically means the coming to an end of their ignominious reign.
. “That much was admitted by the President’s former running mate, Pastor Tunde Bakare, when he praised the emergence of Atiku as an ‘eagle’ and ‘a cosmopolitan wazobia’ politician.
. “Obviously, Pastor Tunde Bakare has foreseen that the era of 97 per cent versus five per cent has come to an end with the emergence of the pan-Nigerian Atiku Abubakar.”

“We ask, how can the Buhari Campaign Organisation disparage the PDP primary that produced Atiku, when even the President’s own wife, Aisha Buhari, has condemned the APC’s primary?
. “Not only did Mrs Buhari condemn the APC’s primaries, she described them as ‘unfair’ and lacking in integrity. Who can know President Buhari better than his wife?”

Ambode did well in office, but he isn’t a good party man –Tinubu

punchnewspapers-1538501731266

The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, said on Tuesday that though Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has done well in office, he has not been a good party man.
.
Tinubu spoke with journalists at Ward C, Ikeja Local Government Area, after the conclusion of voting in the Lagos APC governorship primary.
.
Asked why he withdrew his support for Ambode, Tinubu said, “Who did I support in 2014? Ambode. Life is dynamic. It’s those who made me the leader of the structure in Lagos who said it was what they want. It’s only if you have followers that you’re a leader in democracy.
.
“If I look back and I don’t find them again; if I don’t respond to them, if I fail to accede to their request, I would have failed the leadership test.
.
“This is not personal; it is beyond me as a person. Every democratic constitution is preceded by ‘We, the people’. So, I had to submit myself to the wishes and the yearnings of our party.
.
“This is an elixir for the general election. Ambode Akin, he’s doing well, yes; he hasn’t been a good party man; not only the glamour, not only about brick and mortal. A talent is determined by character. For you to become an influential person, you have to respond to the yearnings of the people. This is politics; democracy, one man, one vote.”
.
Tinubu dismissed the suggestion that the development in Lagos State could negatively affect the fortune of the party at the national level in 2019.
.
He also described the direct primary as the best, saying it had helped to eliminate intra-party corruption.
