“Please accept my assurances of the highest regards.”

Former president Obasanjo has openly opposed the re-election bid of Buhari, stating that he has shielded corrupt persons around him and supports some parts of the country against the other.

He had in January released a strong-worded statement where he advised the president to forget about another term.

THE LETTER IN FULL

A CLARION CALL TO ALL NIGERIAN YOUTH TO SUPPORT THE SECOND TERM BID OF PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI IN 2019

All over the world the youth have a significant and instrumentative role in shaping society. They are the future leaders who possess great energy, talent and abilities to positively transform the socio-economic and political future of our nation. The younger generation should not be on the sidelines, leadership will not be handed over to them on a platter of gold. It is important to be involved in activities and decisions that will steer Nigeria forward and we must learn from the mistakes of the past.

Our elders and leaders also must willingly prepare and mentor us the youth to take on more crucial roles and become responsible leaders in various spheres of the country. Critical understanding of issues and constructive criticisms would be a positive step, not misinformation, poor reporting, lies or propaganda to undermine the achievements and efforts of the current administration.

The Bill and Melinda gates foundation predicted that by 2050 Nigeria and Congo will have of the world’s poorest people. These findings were not concluded within three years but have gathered data from the past 58years of our great nation. We are at a critical juncture where the current administration, in order to prevent the predictions coming to pass, have had to go back to the drawing board. The current administration has begun the process of laying a solid foundation for future generations. They have deliberated and contemplated extensively on our myriad of issues and complexity as a nation to proffer deeply rooted plans and policies to tackle and establish a strong base on which to build and consolidate upon.

It is also important to note that this process is not without pains but we should consider where we were, where we are and where we are going, The current administration has given hope to the common man; it is the dawn of a new age. I would humbly and strongly appeal that we all embrace and support Buhari’s government in his aggressive, relentless pursuit of equitable distribution of wealth and resources to the masses to aid the growth and development of our nation. He is seriously improving and empowering local farmers, indu strialists, the women, the SME and businessmen.

The government is serious about development and has given new life to the steel industry and the Buhari Administration is determined to industrialize our Nation and to make us a producing nation and the revival of the Ajaokuta steel complex and completion of the Baro and Lokoja ports are examples, The current administration has sought to address our importation of petroleum products through the relocation of refineries. These are few examples, a whole book is needed to put the achievement and successes of the current administration into details. The current administration has invested more in education, health, agriculture, security, road infrastructural development to aid the growth of the economy despite receiving less revenue.

The ingenuity of the current administration in proffering solutions is highly commendable. No human is perfect, no government is perfect, only the Creator of heaven and earth embodies perfection. We are on the right path and should not deviate. The youths of our great nation •should join hands and support the progress and giant strides of President Buhari, he is working commendably to free us from past bondage and captivity. We are on the right path but we must not go back into bondage again. The Lord has provided a safe route for us through the Red Sea now, we must continue safely in this journey and not relent.

I am calling on the youths of our nation to let us work together to return President Buhari to power in 2019. Thanks and God bless Nigeria and protect all of us

I remain a sincere, committed servant of the people

    Is that as issue? Who knows him in Nigeria. What are his political antecedents? Is he relevant in Nigerian polity. That is his personal opinion. He is a man and has his right to choose what he wants. This is not a news.

2023: North Has Learnt Its Lessons With Buhari — Sheikh Gumi

Published

on

Ahmad Gumi

Islamic scholars, Sheikh Ahmed Gumi, has described Nigerians as very sentimental people who do not learn lessons.

In an interview with Sunday Sun, the Islamic scholar spoke about the 2023 elections, President Muhammadu Buhari and what is going on in the country.

Speaking on the coming 2023 elections, Gumi said stability is what is important now and not regional politics.

He explained that Nigeria is not about who leads from which region. He said what Nigeria needs is a crop of smart and intelligent Nigerians and it has nothing to do with whether the person is from the north, south, east or west.

According to him, the north has learnt its lessons with President Buhari. He said: “The north has learnt its lessons. Now, north is worse hit with Buhari. Jonathan was building 150 Almajiri schools, nine universities in the north. He was doing things. This Kaduna-Abuja rail, although the late President Umar Yar’Adua started it. So, let’s have somebody who can do it.”

Listing the qualities of the kind of leader Nigeria needs, he said such a person must be alert, intelligent, not take revenge, be forgiving, rehabilitate and not kill or imprison.

He added that the person’s mind should not be about catching people, but correcting them.

Asked if he has noticed any difference in the country since its return to democratic rule in 1999, he said there is development in the world as technology has made things better. He, however, said there is retrogression in government.

“Things are supposed to improve because science and technology have brought development close to the people. Government is retrogressing simply because we don’t have the right people in the right place and at the right time. Nigeria’s situation now is worse,” he added.

We Won’t Declare Kalu’s Seat Vacant — Senate

Published

on

orji uzor kalu

The Senate on Friday ruled out the possibility of declaring vacant, the seat of its Chief Whip, Senator Orji Kalu, following his conviction by a Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday.

Kalu, a former governor of Abia State, was sentenced to 12 years’ imprisonment over a N7.65bn fraud charges against him since 2007 by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

The judgment was delivered by Justice Mohammed Idris, 12 years after the EFCC filed the suit against him.

Kalu was convicted alongside his firm, Slok Nigeria Limited, and Jones Udeogu, who served under him as the director of finance and account at the Abia State Government House in Umuahia.

Reacting to the calls on the leadership of the Senate to declare his seat vacant, the Spokesperson for the red chamber, Senator Godiya Akwashiki, said it was not possible.

He said such a request would only be considered after the embattled senator had explored all the legal options available to him without success.

Akwashiki argued that the constitution of Nigeria does not mandate the Senate President to unilaterally declare the seat of any senator facing prosecution or convicted by a lower court, vacant.

He said, “The Senate has no reason to declare his seat vacant. This is not the first time that such a thing would happen.

“There is no provision in the constitution that says the seat of any senator facing prosecution or convicted at a lower court should be declared vacant.

“He still has the opportunity to appeal the case.

“Even the tenure of a former governor Joshua Dariye, who has been in prison for some time now, ran its course until the end of the 8th National Assembly. Nobody declared his seat vacant.

“The Senate President cannot declare the seat of Kalu vacant. It is against the law.

“Tell those who are canvassing such things that there is nothing like that, it is a non-issue,” the Senate spokesperson added.

On whether Kalu will continue to receive salaries while in prison, Akwashiki said the National Assembly bureaucracy determines the payment of senators based on the template from the Revenue Mobilisation and Fiscal Allocation Commission.
