2023 Presidency: Nobody Can Stop The Igbo When The Time Comes — Edwin Clark

Published

on

South-South leader, Chief Edwin Clark, yesterday, took a swipe at the Presidency, saying that when the time comes for the people of the South-East to produce the President of the country, nobody can stop them.

According to the Ijaw leader, giving the people of the South-East region a condition that their presidency in 2023 could only be guaranteed and achieved if they vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 was unnecessary and must be condemned in all its ramifications.

The elder statesman was reacting to a statement by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, that the South-East endorsement of Buhari’s re -election will secure their presidency in 2023.

Clark said that what was required in Nigeria at the moment and years to come was good governance.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja after he paid a condolence visit to Governor Henry Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State over the death of his mother, Ma Goldcoast Dickson, the elder statesman lampooned the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, on the assertion that for the South-East people to have the presidency in 2023, they must vote for Buhari.

Clark said, “That is a very unusual statement. Is it a threat or an appeal? Nigerians will always vote for the candidates they believe in, candidates that will rule Nigeria without any trouble, without religious fanaticism, someone who doesn’t believe in ethnicity, somebody competent enough, healthy enough to rule Nigeria .

“This is the greatest country in Africa; by the way, the Igbo are in the South-East, they are part of this country from the First Republic. No one has put them aside; so when the time comes for the Igbo to be the President of Nigeria, nobody will dispute to it or stop them.”

Earlier, Clark, who noted that he was at the residence of the governor to sympathize with him over the death of his mother, said that Dickson’s mum will be a very happy mother after giving her a befitting burial that had been slated for January next year in Delta State, adding that the mother left behind a very dynamic and progressive son.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha, had, while speaking with journalists after a meeting between Buhari and the South-East governors at the Presidential Villa on Wednesday, urged the Igbo to endorse Buhari’s re- election bid in order to secure the presidency in 2023.

Mustapha had said: “This obviously might not be most appropriate time. You remember there was a programme in the south-east where Mr. President asked me to represent him and I flew the kite by telling the south-eastern states that their quickest and easiest means to presidency is to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term”.

    “He who planted the ear, does He not hear? He who formed the eye, does He not see?(Psalms 94:9)”.

    Like this saying “The wicked does as if the LORD doesn’t see him”.. When people engage in evil activities and perpetrate all manner of mischief, they do all this thinking and believing that the LORD GOD is not seeing them. When the judge on earth pervert justice, kill the innocent, silence the poor, take bribe, free the offender but convict innocent, they think, the Judge(God) of all nations is not seeing them. When the rich oppress the poor, they think God doesn’t see them.

    When people kill for money, power, position, fame, and ritual, they think the LORD who says “Thou shall not kill” doesn’t see them. When you backbite, gossip, curse and speak evil against people, you think the LORD who planted the ear does not hear? Why not repent and forsake all your sins today?

    Where can you run on the TERRIBLE DAY of the LORD? When He will avenge all the evil the people of the world are doing now. Wait a sec! Where can you hide from the Spirit of the LORD, have you forgotten He’s omnipresent, who He’s present everywhere at the same time? Where can you hide from Him when you are doing evil, that He may not see you?

    The Bible says He looks down from heaven and the earth trembles, He touches the mountain and smoke comes out. What a great and mighty God He is! Repent, before nemesis catch up with you! Fornicators, adulterers, thieves, murderers, all who abort, internet fraudsters, gossipers, drunkard, and all who do evil thinking the LORD GOD who planted their ears and formed their eyes can’t hear or see.

    There is a day of reckoning, when you shall give account of all you are doing now. Repent! JESUS IS COMING SOON!

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.

BREAKING: Court Dismisses Suit Against Oshiomhole

Published

on

A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Jabi, Abuja has dismissed a suit filed against the immediate past Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole and three others.

The suit, filed by Comrade Mustapha Salihu and five others, was the one in respect of which the court granted an interim order on March 4 this year, suspending Oshiomhole from further acting as the APC’s National Chairman.

The Court of Appeal, in Abuja in a judgment on June 16, 2020, upheld Oshiomhole’s suspension.

Parties were to return to the High Court of the FCT for determination of the substantive suit, when on Thursday, Plaintiff’s lawyer, Oluwola Afolabi moved a motion to withdraw the case.

Afolabi said the withdrawal was informed by the directive by leaders of the APC that all court cases be discontinued in the interest of peace.

Lawyer to Oshiomhole and one other, Ginika Ezeoke said she was not opposed to the plaintiffs’ desire to withdraw.

Ezeoke then urged the court to dismiss the suit on the grounds that parties have filed pleadings and have be enjoined issues in relation to the subject of the case.

Ruling, Justice Danlami Senchi dismissed the suit and ordered parties to bear their respective costs.
