Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo stormed the rally of Oladipupo Adebutu, one of the governorship aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun state, on Monday

The presence of the elder statesman energised the people at the rally which held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, Ogun state capital.

When the microphone was handed over to him, Obasanjo wished the party and Adebutu success in the aspiration.

Obasanjo, who was dressed in white kaftan, said he came to the event “to say hello”.

“I am just passing by and decided to say hello and wish you well… whether it is a joke or a real game, they will know. I saw you here and I came to play with you,” Obasanjo told Adebutu before heading for his convoy.

Obasanjo, who served under PDP during his two terms as president, has since left the opposition party.

The former president tore his membership card of the PDP in the buildup to the 2015 election and said he had left partisan politics.

This followed a disagreement with ex-President Goodluck Jonathan whose reelection he bid he opposed.

Jonathan eventually lost the election.

At the moment, Obasanjo is also opposed to the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Adebutu, a serving member of the house of representatives, is an in-law to Obasanjo.

Buhari Is Nigeria’s Most Democratic President – Gov. Bello

Published

on

Buhari - Yahaya Bello

Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, on Thursday described President Muhammadu Buhari as the most democratic leader the country has ever produced.

Bello also faulted the position of the National Security Adviser (NSA), Major- Gen. Babagana Monguno retd), who reportedly scored low the November 16 governorship elections in Bayelsa and Kogi States.

Speaking with State House correspondents after meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the governor said President Buhari had “democratized governance.”

Bello was reacting to the Wednesday editorial of the Punch Newspapers which described the President as a dictator without respect for human rights and rule of law.

The governor said: “Mr. President is the most democratic President I have ever seen. This is the first time we are seeing a former military head of state that is so democratic to the extent of allowing things happening in his home front to be democratized not to talk of things happening in the country.

“Whoever is tagging him to be a dictator; I think that person wished to be a dictator himself, not Mr. President.”

On the political crisis that has brought division among different ethnic groups in the state, he said that he was making frantic efforts to reconcile everyone.

“Kogi State as you know was slightly divided before now but upon assumption of office and until the last general elections, I have been making every effort to ensure that there is reconciliation and bringing everybody on board.

“That was what resulted in our massive victory in the last general election. Leaders and stakeholders of the state have been called upon to join in the new direction administration, so we are moving on perfectly.”

On the statement credited to the NSA on the governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa, he said Monguno was quoted out of context.

Bello said: “I think Mr. NSA, Gen. Monguno must have been quoted out of context. I can say that because the last general elections reflected the wishes of the people.”

Fani-Kayode Reacts To Buhari’s ‘No Visa Policy’

Published

on

Femi Fani-Kayode

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Thursday, reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s announcement of visa on arrival for citizens of African countries.

Buhari spoke on Wednesday at the opening session of the ongoing Aswan Forum for Sustainable Peace and Development in Africa in Egypt.

He said: “We in Nigeria have already taken the strategic decision to bring down barriers that have hindered the free movement of our people within the continent by introducing the issuance of a visa at the point of entry into Nigeria to all persons holding passports of African countries with effect from January 2020.”

But Fani-Kayode in a statement said the Fulanis of North and West Africa have finally been given what they wanted all along.

“They will flood Nigeria in their millions and within 5 years our demographics will change forever”, the former presidential aide noted. Simply put, visa-free policy for Africans to come into Nigeria is a shameless and subtle attempt to alter the racial and religious demographics of our country and open our front door for mass Fulani, Berber, Taureg and Arab migration into our shores.

“By the time they come here from all over north and west Africa and settle down, we the indigenous people of Nigeria will be a tiny minority. The next thing they will do is to implement RUGA to the letter and take our land and insist on sharia law being implemented all over the country. It is a dangerous, self-serving and self-seeking policy that will ultimately result in great conflict, carnage, racial and religious strife, and total catastrophe.

“In an attempt to implement an ancient agenda of Fulani hegemony and turn us into a conquered and enslaved people Buhari, his born to rule co-travellers and their vast legion of slavish sympathisers and supporters are likely to set Nigeria on fire.

“You will not believe me now just as you did not believe me when I warned about the true nature of Buhari in 2015 and the grave consequences of electing him as President. Yet my words have proved to be prophetic and just as I have been vindicated on Buhari I shall be vindicated on this matter of the grave and dangerous consequences of visa-free mass migration by vagrant, stateless and nomadic Africans into our shores.

“With this irresponsible, unpatriotic, dangerous and self-serving policy, I repeat, we are playing with fire and sitting on a keg of gunpowder which will eventually explode. It will be the final nail in the coffin of a united Nigeria. May God deliver us from the coming evil.”

Fani-Kayode Cautions Buhari Over Alleged Plot To Remove Oyo Governor, Makinde

Published

on

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Femi Fani-Kayode, has told President Muhammadu Buhari not to meddle with the affairs of Oyo State.

According to the former minister of aviation, the biggest mistake President Buhari will make is to either bribe or coerce the Supreme Court into nullifying the election that brought Governor Seyi Makinde to power.

This statement came after the PDP in South West raised allegations that the president was planning to upturn the victory of Governor Makinde at the Supreme Court.

This was said in a meeting, which was attended by top PDP members like the Deputy National Chairman, Yemi Akinwonmi; the Vice Chairman, North West, Senator Ibrahim Kazaure; National Vice Chairman, South West, Dr. Eddy Olafeso; and Dr. Doyin Okupe.In a tweet yesterday, the former minister advised the president not to tread that dangerous path, as it would result in nothing but calamity, chaos and disaster.
