I’ll Restructure Nigeria If Elected President – Makarfi

Published

makarfi

A People Democratic Party (PDP) presidential hopeful, Alhaji Ahmed Markarfi, has said if elected as president of the country, the first thing he would do is to restructure the country.

Makarfi made this known, on Friday, in Lokoja, the Kogoi State capital, when he visited the PDP Secretariat in the state on a familiarisation tour.

The presidential hopeful who said there is so much hunger and starvation in the land, said Nigerians needed a trusted leader who will carry out restructuring that will be beneficial to every Nigerian.

He stressed that he would first commence on institutional restructuring saying the current situation where government agencies like EFCC, police and others are made answerable to the government of the day would not be so as they would be made to be answerable and accountable to Nigerians.

Markarfi said he has adequate knowledge of every part of Nigeria and their teething problems , saying if given the chance , he knows best on how to fix those problems.

While appealing to PDP faithful to remain united and focused, he said he brought back the party to where it is today when some people were bent on destroying it.

He urged members not to allow some people who are found of jumping from one party to the other to hijack the party saying he has been a loyal PDP member right from the scratch adding ” we should not create the impression that loyalty does not pay”.

Markarfi, who said in 2007 when the tenure of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was coming to an end, the then party chairman, Ahmadu Ali, called on all the governors to appoint somebody among them to succeed Obasanjo, and he was appointed, only for some people to scuttle it.

He said he did not leave the party for that purpose like some are fond of doing, but that he believed power comes from God.

    The insincerity of the hausas has really made Nigeria look like a child’s play, disintegration is the best solution to this setback the country is passing through because of these ungrateful scavengers called hausas which am sure even God who created them is regretting doing that.

      The sincerity of the wailers was so evident when their clueless representative declared 16 was greater than 19 & that stealing was not corruption! No wonder, even as incumbent President, their representative lost! Now, they are telling us even God makes mistakes!! Their’s must be a “shrine God” to regret, which Hausas don’t worship or believe in. No wonder, “their God” failed them in 2015, while the true God gave success to the Hausas!

    We are your fools right?, just look at your donkey head, why not the North accept restructuring Nigeria now, or is it that if Buhari restructure Nigerian the pillars of Nigeria will crumble & the house collapse on the North, but when you become president the pillars of Nigeria will be spiritually reinforced to carry the restructuring?

“Igbo People Are Happy With Buhari, Will Continue To Support Him” — Arthur Eze

Published

on

Billionaire oil magnate, Arthur Eze says Igbo people are happy with President Muhammadu Buhari and will continue to support his administration.

The notable philanthropist stated this on Wednesday at the inauguration of Zone 13 Nigeria Police Headquarters at Ukpo, in Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra State.

A visibly-elated Eze expressed delight that his hometown was chosen as the site for the police zonal headquarters, thanking the president and the police authorities.

“He is currently rehabilitating the Enugu-Onitsha highway, constructing the 2nd Niger Bridge and has approved this new police zone 13 for our people,” said Mr Eze, an indigene of Ukpo.

“We cannot thank him enough, and as a leader from the zone, I must say that we the Igbo people are happy with President Buhari and will continue to support his people-oriented programmes,’’ Eze said.

He later handed over the key of the complex to a representative of the Inspector-General of Police, saying that policemen deployed to the zone would have a fruitful working experience.

The newly-established Zone 13 is expected to cover three South-Eastern states – Ebonyi, Enugu and Anambra.

While Ebonyi was previously under Zone 6 headquartered in Calabar, Enugu and Anambra were under Zone 9 with headquarters in Umuahia.

BREAKING: Ekweremadu To Run For Governorship In Enugu Under APC

Published

on

Former Deputy Senate President and Senator representing Enugu West Senatorial district, Mr Ike Ekweremadu has reportedly concluded plans to dump his political party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of 2023 Enugu governorship tussle.

THE NIGERIA DAILY quoted a source close to the former deputy Senate President to have said that Ekweremadu has renewed his high-level negotiations with the top echelon of the APC from the South East.

The source told THE NIGERIA DAILY that Ekweremadu’s defection to the APC has nothing to do with disagreement with his own party, the PDP, but solely on his desire to pursue his governorship ambition in 2023.

It will be recalled that Ekweremadu is one of the longest-serving senators in the national assembly having represented his senatorial zone for 16 years and still counting.

During his re-election in 2019, Ekweremadu has promised his constituents he would not be seeking another term in the Senate come 2023.

He was first elected to the senate in 2003. In 2015 he attempted to run for Governor but the then Governor, Sullivan Chime denied him the ticket insisting it was the turn of another zone. This prompted Ekweremadu to renegotiate his way back to the Senate.

THE NIGERIA DAILY reports that Enugu PDP has insisted on following the zoning arrangements of 1999. Enugu East produced Governor between 1999-2007, followed by Enugu West (2007-2015) and now Enugu North (2015-date ) The tenure of Enugu North is expected to elapse by 2023.

But Ekweremadu’s close aide told THE NIGERIA DAILY that since all zones have benefited from the zoning arrangements, it doesn’t matter which zone produces the next governor.

Meanwhile, Enugu East which has former governors Chimaraoke Nnamani and Jim Nwobodo have made it clear that they are leaving no stone unturned in producing the next governor and the incumbent governor, Rt. Hon Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi is strongly in support of Enugu East, this Newspaper still learnt.

With Ekweremadu leaving no stone unturned on his interest to occupy the Lion Building (Enugu State Government House) and without the support of the incumbent governor, his alternate vehicle to achieve his long time dream is through the APC.

This online Newspaper confirmed that Ekweremadu has activated all his governorship structures and is on the verge of concluding all necessary measures before he finally announces his defection to the APC.

Edo Guber Poll: You Are No Match For Wike, PDP Replies Ganduje

Published

on

Wike and Ganduje

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Monday, described the chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, national campaign council for the Edo governorship election, and governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, as a “barefaced treasury looter who has no moral rectitude to speak on corruption.”

The party stated this while reacting to comments credited to the Kano governor over the manner the APC would take Edo, specifically saying that his counterpart and governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike would be “isolated” until the conduct of the poll in Edo on September 19 this year.

In a statement issued by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP described as a huge irony that Governor Ganduje, “who has become a butt of national shame after being seen on viral video stuffing his robe with gratification in foreign currency,” would accuse the PDP of corruption intentions in the Edo state governorship election.

The statement read: “It is a paradox that an individual who has earned himself the disgraceful public sobriquet of “gandollar”, after being caught collecting gratification, would attempt to accuse others of having intention of looting the treasury of a state.

“The PDP points out that it is only in a party like the APC, under a Buhari Presidency, that such a tarnished individual can be selected to speak in public, let alone lead a governorship election campaign.

“Apparently, Governor Ganduje and other APC leaders are so used to looting public treasuries that such is his first mental direction after his inauguration to lead the Edo governorship campaign.

“Governor Ganduje has further confirmed the real intention of the APC, which is to use their morally embattled candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu for their desperate effort to regain access to Edo state treasury, after Governor Godwin Obaseki liberated the state from the stranglehold of APC treasury-looting godfathers.

“Our party invites Governor Ganduje to note that there is no free dollars for him and other APC leaders to loot in Edo state. Under the PDP, the resources of Edo state, and indeed other PDP states, belong to the people and not to any political cabal and their godfathers.

“Of course, this is why the people of Edo state are solidly behind Governor Obaseki for firmly resisting APC looters.”

“Moreover, Governor Ganduje, with his infamous “gandollar” video, is no match to the Chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo election, Governor Nyesom Wike.

“Whereas Governor Wike is a highly respected, upright, honest, transparent, people-based and development-driven leader, who is firmly in touch with the people of Edo state and enjoys their confidence and trust, Governor Ganduje, on the other hand, represent a leadership that is fraught with dishonesty, corruption, non-performance and public shame.”
