Nd’Igbo Not Interested In Presidency, Want Freedom – Ekweremadu Tells FG

Published

on

Ekweremadu

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has asked the Federal Government to respect the rights of Nigerians, so that the rule of law, equity and justice will prevail.

Ekweremadu stated this on Saturday while speaking to journalists in Enugu.

“Let me use the opportunity to advise the government to ensure that human rights are respected, that there is justice to all, fairness, and equal opportunity to everybody in Nigeria”, he said.

Ekweremadu wants an environment whereby Nigerians especially the Igbos can strive.

He stated, “If you do that, Nigerians will not care where you come from either the north or South, anybody can be the President of f Nigeria forever.

“All they want is an atmosphere for them to grow, they are not interested in Presidency or anything”.

His comment comes after security operatives last Tuesday stormed his residence and that of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki in Abuja.

He called for the restructuring of the country where Nigerians will have rights to freedom, democracy and live as one from different parts of the country.

“We need to come back to the rights of freedom, democracy and fundamental rights which our forefathers agreed should be the guiding principles of democracy in Nigeria”, he further added.

    Kudus to the current Igbo leaders, for opting out, shunning, rejecting the offer of presenting the next STOOGE, for that is what the presidency of Nigeria has now become in the hands of the Northern CABALS.
    Tell them to Restructure or organise a Referendum for all objecting parts of this sinking nation.

    Sometimes I look at the Igbo nation and I can’t help but express some level of pity. This is a highly populated area with very educated, industrious and versatile people and all these are positive factors that make a society and a people first class. Unfortunately that does not seem to be the current case with the Igbo. Increasingly, they are suffering relegation and gradually it is growing into abandonment and that is very unfortunate for a people that should be courted and embraced. I don’t know the why a first class nation has suddenly become the boot of all. Some say civil war took its toll; that is a fact. It is also a fact that the war ended more than four and a half decades ago and if past examples are anything to go by, given their known resourcefulness they ought to have regained balance and taken their position.

    You have been in the National Assembly for many years but you didn’t know that Ndi Igbo needed freedom except now that you have corruption cases awaiting for you. In the first place tell the people whose sentiments you are trying to exploit, your achievements for them for all the years you stayed in the national assembly, and whether you have ever submitted any bill seeking for their freedom, independence and emancipation. Ndi Igbos do not be fooled by the people who have been part of your problems, only when they are in trouble they remember you to fight for them through your processions and protests. BE WISE.

    Sooner or later all of those that sport the fulani kalifaith reson right. Because all Nigeria do is use and kill or dump u, with one voice, one Word,and one spirite we united. That is referéndum. Okorocha, nnia nwodo and all there soporters will soon aply thier proper initietives and understand that as long as there is islam in Nigeria. The killings will naver stop. Why dont we stop the killings of our peopel by voten for referéndum. Freedum is the only solution that BIAFRA need and not president. Because we have seen what Nigeria did to yacobu jarck gowon and T Y danjuma. They used them against the BIAFRA from 1967 to 1970 to wipe all the BIAFRANS. But today they came after them as well to wipe them too. Because some midel belt are also part of BIAFRA but Nigeria dont whant them to accknowlage thier history. That was why murutala Mohamed divided the state and call midel belt and also called some Níger delta. To bring confution among the biafra so that they can naver unite. And Nigeria will be abel to dominate them and wipe at the end they whant our land for thier caws. Because the land of the rising sun BIAFRA our land is milk and horney.BIAFRA REFERENDUM HALELUYA GRATE IS OUR LIVING GOD

Ndigbo Are Not Anti-APC — Lagos Lawmaker

Published

on

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

Published

on

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.”
