I’ll Restructure Nigeria If Elected President – Makarfi

Published

on

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?

2023: PDP Will Zone Presidency To North — Ex-Benue Gov Suswam

Published

on

Former Governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam has explained why the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would allegedly be zoning its 2023 presidential ticket to the North.

He gave the explanation in an interview published by Sunday Sun.

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Power noted that the party zoned the presidency to the north in 2019 and the PDP candidate did not emerge president.

Based on this, he said, the former arrangement remains until the north is able to produce the president on the party’s ticket.

Asked if the PDP would zone the presidency to the north in 2023, Suswam said, “Of course, the PDP will maintain zoning. We have not realised it, so the zoning still remains in the North in the PDP. In PDP, we zoned the Presidency to the North and have we realised it? No. So, the zoning still remains in the North for 2023. Presidency is not micro-zoned. Once you say North, every person in the North is entitled to contest and the best person wins.”

Suswam also dismissed insinuations that the Ahmed Lawan-led Ninth Senate is a rubber-stamp to the Executive arm.

He said, “Well, I wouldn’t say that the current Senate is rubber stamp. The leadership of the National Assembly decided that unlike what happened previously, we are all elected whether on the executive side or legislative side, with a common objective which is to serve Nigerians. And the only way that can be feasible is for us to cooperate among ourselves even though the doctrine of separation of power exists.

“That doctrine of separation of power in principle presumes that there will be inter-independence. It’s not that you can take actions that are totally opposed to the other.

“We have to collaborate for us to move forward. And so I think what the Senate has done, given the experience of Nigerians in the previous Senate when nothing was working – budget was not passed and even if it was passed, it was passed mid-year. So, it was impossible for any activity of government to continue. So, we said let us depart from that. That doesn’t make us rubber stamp. We just feel that we should cooperate.”

There Is No Crisis In APC, Tinubu Says

Published

on

Tinubu - APC

The APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Thursday night declared that there was no differences to be sorted out in the party.

Tinubu, also said, “there is no crisis in the party, hence, no fight to reconcile.”

He made the declaration shortly after a closed door meeting with Gov. Mai Mala Buni, Chairman of the APC Caretaker Committee and other members at his Bourdillon Residence in Ikoyi, Lagos.

Buni, also Governor of Yobe, led other members of the APC National Caretaker Committee to the Lagos meeting with Tinubu.

”We have no differences to be sorted out in the APC; we just had consultation and it is how our party, the APC, would continue to be a progressive party,” he said.

According to him, the committee is a consultation and not reconciliation committee since nobody is fighting anybody.

”There are instances when you disagree, but it doesn’t mean that you cannot discuss it over and be a good example in leadership and politics,” Tinubu said.

The former Lagos State governor also said that politics without seeming media crisis would be less interesting.

”But the question is, are we committed to building this party and Nigeria? That is what we are all about.

”We are steering the ship of our nation and our party in the right direction,” Tinubu said.

He said that the party leadership had trust and respect for the chairman of the caretaker committee and would support him to succeed for the party to continue in its progressive governance of the country.

The committee chairman, who led other members to the meeting, said that the meeting was part of the consultation the committee was making.

”You know the task before us is daunting, and we need guidance, experience and prayers from our leaders,” Buni said.

The host Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, expressed his pleasure to have his colleagues in the state.

”It’s been a very fruitful discussion we have had here this evening,” Sanwo-Olu said.

Other members of the committee in attendance included the Chairman of Progressive Governor’s Forum, Gov. Abubakar Atiku Bagudu; Secretary of Caretaker Committee, APC, Sen. James Akpan Udo-Edehe and Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Bello.

Why Supreme Court May Disqualify Obaseki — Erhahon

Published

on

A former Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress in Edo State, Godwin Erhahon, has said the Supreme Court may eventually disqualify Governor Godwin Obaseki, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the forthcoming governorship election in Edo State on the grounds that he contested in the primaries of two different political parties.

Erhahon, who spoke to Daily Post in Benin-City, said what happened to Uche Nwosu, the governorship candidate of the Action Alliance, would also happen to him since, like Nwosu, he contested primaries in two different political parties, the APC and PDP.

Erhahon also said Obaseki and his deputy, Philip Shaibu, are wasting their time because they have failed to learn from history, adding that what happened to Nwosu should have served as a lesson to them.

According to him a Supreme Court judgment that sacked Nwosu as the governorship candidate of the AA in the 2019 election should have guided the governor’s decision to participate in the Peoples Democratic Party’s primary after undergoing screening in APC.

“The apex court crafted the judgment so explicitly as if it was meant for the duo of the governor and his deputy to understand what fate awaits them in the state.

“The Supreme court nullified Uche Nwosu nomination in AA on the account that he had contested for nomination under APC.

“As if to explain itself further to the outgoing Governor, the Supreme Court elaborated on how the relevant law nullifies the PDP candidacy for their understanding when it elaborated thus:

“The spirit of the law forbids anyone to contest for nomination under two or more parties in the same election or even start the process of being nominated by procuring the nomination form. How does Governor Obaseki hope to escape the last clause?” Erhahon maintained.

Erhahon also said the governor currently possesses a counterfeit PDP governorship ticket, since he obtained the APC nomination form, filled it and returned same, and even attended the party’s screening and was disqualified.

He said based on that clause, the apex Court seems to have told Obaseki to stop wasting his time and resources.

“So also does it sound a warning to Obaseki’s supporters that they are about burying themselves along with a dead body because they are blinded by temporary pecuniary sentiments.

“Whoever is being deceived by his neighbour may survive but whoever deceives himself is on a suicide mission. Let’s watch and see where desperation, cantankerousness and sadism are leading Governor Obaseki to. Like the Benin elders would say, ‘Hasty wrestling and fatal fall go together’,” he averred.
