President Muhammadu Buhari has been described as a common enemy of Nigerians by the Peoples Democratic Party and the Social Democratic Party.
The statement was made by the spokespersons of the parties while at the national secretariat of PDP on Wednesday in Abuja.
Princess Goldba Tolofari, the National Publicity Secretary of the SDP, while on a visit to the Peoples Democratic party’s spokesperson, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, made the statement.
Ologbondiyan said, “We have a common enemy; Buhari is the enemy of Nigeria. He’s a common enemy to the SDP and PDP, that is why we are here to rescue the nation.”
Tolofari, while delivering her greetings from Chief Olu Falae, the SDP Chairman, further stated that Buhari was brought into power by Nigerians, thinking that they were bringing a messiah that would rescue the nation.
While describing the story of Nigeria, the SDP spokesperson stated that other Africa countries has lost respect for Nigeria, adding that, “it beat my imagination that under Buhari’s watch, things are deteriorating.”
She added, “They are not democrats, that is why things are deteriorating and we cannot watch and see things going the way they are.
“Buhari is the Minister of Petroleum and the whole place stinks of corruption. Graduates are taxi drivers, there is hunger everywhere and that is why our youths are carrying guns with killings everywhere.”
She commended Ologbondiyan for giving a voice to alternative views which she said that the Federal Government would rather muffle.
Tolofari, however said a joint work with Ologbondiyan would help to unroot the common obstacle holding down national growth and development “for our traumatised people and the nation.”
Ologbondiyan, revealed that a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with the SDP and 37 other parties so as to push out Buhari from power.
He said, “You have said that the problem of Nigeria today is Buhari and we are joining together to push him out. The bloodletting is becoming too much.
“The journey from Abuja to Kaduna, which is less than two hours, has become a nightmare and this government is not doing anything about it. That is why we signed the MoU to rescue this country.”
He stated that the rescue mission is already on, and the result of it is the mass defection of lawmakers from the All Progressives Congress to the PDP at the National Assembly on Tuesday.
Ologbondiyan, pointed out that Nigerians has been failed by Nigerians for been unable to fight Boko Haram, corruption and other vices besieging the nation, stating that the President’s body language supports corruption.
He cited a case of the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, who was accused of certificate forgery, saying, “we don’t expect her to stay a day longer, but because Buhari’s body language encourages corruption that is why she’s still there. Buhari must be voted out.”
But the Presidency has described the claim by the PDP and SDP that Buhari is Nigeria’s common enemy as the most hilarious accusation against the President.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said this in an interview with Punch.
Shehu described Buhari as the noblest person to preside over Nigeria since independence.
The presidential spokesman said, “This is by far the most hilarious accusation against our President.
“President Buhari is the noblest person to lead Nigeria since independence.
“Unlike some of his predecessors handed to the nation by the Peoples Democratic Party, no one calls him a coward, a psychopath or a thief.”
Ndigbo Are Not Anti-APC — Lagos Lawmaker
The belief that Ndigbo are generally opposed to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) lacks a factual basis, the lawmaker representing Oshodi/Isolo Constituency II at the Lagos State House of Assembly, Jude Idimogu, has said.
Idimogu, leader of the Igbo in the APC, said he intended to help change the narrative that Ndigbo did not like APC.
“The problem was that the people were not being carried along but my team and I have decided to effect necessary changes,” he said.
He said the Igbo have benefitted immensely from the APC administration and will gain more.
He urged Ndigbo to support the ruling party and the Buhari administration.
“I believe that the government would also respond. Once you have a positive mind towards the party, you stand a better chance of benefiting from APC government,” he said.
He praised President Muhammadu Buhari for granting financial autonomy to state judiciary and legislature.
He said no other president had the will power to do what President Buhari did.
Idimogu spoke when he visited Eze Greg Ezebuadi Ogboroagha, the supreme traditional head of Ndigbo in Iba Local Council Development Area (LCDA).
It is in continuation of his tour of the Local Government Areas and Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs).
“I believe that before he leaves office, there would be complete local government autonomy. Separation of power is the beauty of democracy.
“Every arm of government operating independently would deliver optimal services, and improve democratic gains,” he said.
2023: Buhari’s Son Picked For Vice President
The National Coordinator of the Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, (CAGG), Barrister Olusegun Bamgbose has declared interest in contesting Nigeria’s presidential seat in 2023.
The lawyer while declaring his interest also expressed optimism that the North would support the emergence of a Southerner as Nigeria’s next president.
He said though zoning is unconstitutional, it is only fair for the North to relinquish power to another region in 2023.
Barrister Bamgbose also hinted on picking Yusuf Buhari, son of President Muhammadu Buhari as his running mate for the 2023 presidential election.
The lawyer who is yet to disclose his political party, however, hinted that it is the time for youths to take over the mantle of leadership in Nigeria.
“The South West will forever remember the North for this political gesture,” he noted.
“Even though some political pundits may argue that the North only compensated the South West for the loss of MKO Abiola, who was acknowledged to have won the elections. Whichever way, the North should be appreciated for such a gesture.
“Olusegun Obasanjo handed over power to Yar’adua in 2007, when he died, Jonathan took over. In 2015, the South joined the North to install Buhari.
“It’s therefore politically justifiable for the North to equally support a Southerner to take over power come 2023.
“Obasanjo never disappointed the North and Nigerians, Olusegun Bamgbose will not disappoint Nigerians. As a matter of fact, I’m considering Yusuf Buhari as my running mate come 2023. It’s high time the youths took over power in Nigeria.
“This consideration of mine might look awkward to many Nigerians but it’s because they can’t see what I’m seeing.
“Yusuf Buhari is a material for leadership. I’m blessed with the gift of seeing beyond the physical. I remembered vividly that I once told Jonathan’s Aide that suicide bombing was coming, he doubted me but we all know what’s happening now.
“In 2015 I told Nigerians that Buhari will defeat Jonathan, many thought I was talking nonsense but it came to pass.
“Earlier this year I told Nigerians that a new Chief of Staff will emerge, that has equally happened. Yusuf Buhari is an asset.
“I see him soaring higher politically, other things being equal, he will be my running mate come 2023. He has some hidden potentials which will soon begin to manifest soon to the delight of many Nigerians.
“Whichever you look at it Buhari’s name will be difficult to erase in the political history of Nigeria.”
Bamgbose also noted that even after Buhari’s tenure ends in 2023, the President’s wife, Aisha would still remain politically relevant.
“Even after the exit of Buhari as President of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari will still be prominent and very useful. There is something I’m seeing in her that many Nigerians are ignorant of.
“She is an asset. Nigerians are yet to know the wealth stored in her… I hope to meet Yusuf Buhari soon for some serious political discussions. In all, the North should concede power to the South come 2023. They won’t regret it.”
Tinubu Is NOT My Man — El-Rufai Declares
Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has publicly admitted to having a personal issue with Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
El-rufai admitted to this while speaking at a webinar in commemoration of the 63rd birthday of the former Governor of Osun State, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, on Saturday,
El-Rufai, who didn’t state the kind of differences disclosed that he’s not Tinubu’s “man.”
El-Rufai said: “I want to congratulate my brother, Ogbeni (Aregbesola), on his birthday. You know I’m your man any day.
“I’m not Asiwaju’s man and you are Asiwaju’s man, but I am your man any day. Asiwaju and I have differences but you and I have no differences.”
