Obasanjo Is The Major Problem Of Nigeria Today — Akiolu

Published

Akiolu and Obasanjo

Rilwan Akiolu, the oba of Lagos, has accused ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo of being the major problem of Nigeria.

In an interview with Vanguard, the monarch said the former president was “running after” Lagos when in government, instead of focusing on the country’s investments.

“The major problem of Nigeria today is former President Olusegun Obasanjo. When he was in government, he was running after Lagos while someone was cornering all the blue-chip companies that belong to the country,” he said.

“He cannot win election in his ward in Abeokuta. He ignored all Supreme Court judgements which were in favour of Lagos state.”

Speaking about the 2019 elections, Akiolu advised Nigerians to vote for candidates based on their manifestoes and not for money.

“It is unfortunate, many Nigerians are deceiving themselves. The kind of politics we play here is ‘money politics.’ Politicians should bring their manifestoes and their followers should make sure they deliver on their promises,” he said.

“But for some people to line-up somewhere and be collecting $20,000, $25,000 to pick a presidential candidate is wrong.

“If the person gets there, he will first recoup his money. I pray those people should not get there.”

While praising President Muhammadu Buhari for not being “materialistic”, he labelled other politicians as thieves, adding that if they came to visit him he would tell them to their faces.

“It’s unfortunate that Buhari did not stay long as Head of State in 1984, Nigeria would have been better. Buhari is one of the few, politicians who are not materialistic,” he said.

“Majority of them are ‘grab –grab’ politicians. Let me use this medium to tell all those politicians moving about because election is coming, that if they are not ready to hear the truth, they should not come to my palace.

“I will tell them that they are thieves, Nigerians know them, and youths should not allow politicians to use them.”

    You’re right your majesty, #Abacha told us before that for #Nigeria to move forward #Obasanjo should be caged permanently he will soon meet his Waterloo. He always wanted to be in control of any #Nigerian leader on selfish ground once he cannot achieve that he will result to blackmail for crying out loud this is the man who cannot win his polling unit, is he the only former leader we had? Gen. Gowon and the host of others don’t do that.

S/Court Judgement: Mysterious Owl Attacks Gov Ortom Inside Church

Published

on

Shortly after the Supreme Court of Nigeria affirmed the election of Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, he was unexpectedly attacked at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Makurdi, by a mysterious owl.

According to Daily Post, Ortom was in the church for a special thanksgiving service, when the strange bird attacked.

An eyewitness, Prince Tordue Abe, narrated how the bird, on Tuesday night, found its way into the Church, the exact time the Governor was giving his testimonies and went straight to the altar where Ortom was kneeling down for his testimonies.

But for the prompt efforts of some youths, the night bird, which is superstitiously believed to be a witchcraft bird, would have landed on the Governor’s head.

“It happened few minutes ago while the Governor was on his kneels praying at the Redeemed Christian Church Makurdi.

“An Owl flew in and headed right towards the direction of the Governor. On sighting the Governor the owl bowed before the Governor and together we rushed and killed it.

“Whatever it was they planned against the Governor, the Holy Spirit brought it to a halt.

“Indeed Governor Ortom is not just a man of God but a powerful man of God,” Abe said.

The apex court had on Tuesday delivered judgement in an appeal brought before it by Barr. Emmanuel Jime of the All Progressive Congress (APC), challenging the decision of the Court of Appeal to have upheld the election of Ortom, who contested under the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 9, 2019 guber election in Benue.

In a 30-second judgement delivered by Justice Sylvester Ngwuata, the Supreme Court reaffirmed the victory of Governor Ortom, saying, “The judgement of the Tribunal and Court of Appeal need not to be disturbed”.

Supreme Court Verdict On Imo: Jonathan, Wike Challenged For Keeping Mum

Published

on

A group, PDP Renaissance, has challenged former President Goodluck Jonathan as well as the Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike, to speak up against the recent Supreme Court’s judgment that sacked the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Emeka Ihedioha as the governor of Imo state, declaring Hope Uzodinma of the ruling All Progressive Congress Governor of Imo state.

The group, in a statement on Wednesday, said the continued silence of the two party leaders is unacceptable.

According to the group, the two party leaders must speak up against injustice meted on a fellow party member as silence would pass for patting the unjust doer on the back.

According to the statement, “Our attention has been drawn to the grave silence from former President Goodluck Jonathan and Rivers Governor Barr. Nyesom Wike on the controversial Supreme Court ruling that sacked the Imo state Governor, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha for the All Progressives Congress’ candidate, Hope Uzodinma.

As leaders of political thought, we had expected former president Goodluck Jonathan and governor Nyesom Wike to condemn the judicial usurper that took place in Imo state that made our great party to lose a governor.

Loading...

It is worthy of note that former President Jonathan has often been described as the true reflection of democracy in Nigeria and as such, we expected him to voice out his opinion on matters, such as this, which make mockery of our judiciary system.

Governor Nyesom Wike, we understand, is a supposed friend of the ousted governor Emeka Ihedioha.

Wike and Former President Jonathan’s silence in condemning this anti-democratic move by the APC through a well-orchestrated judicial manipulation to gift the APC candidate, Hope Uzodinma, votes that were never cast for him is not a welcome development.

It was Martin Luther King who once said: In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.

This is no time to play political correctness when we are faced with people that are determined to destroy our very sacred institution.

The Judiciary plays a very important role in every democratic society. The Judiciary ought to provide impartial adjudications of disputes between the state and individuals, between individuals, and between different levels of government within the state. If the Judiciary which serves as a foundation for the rule of law and democracy is destroyed and men of good conscience stay silent, then there is trouble.
