No Other Party Will Rule In Lagos Except APC – Akiolu

Published

on

The Oba of Lagos Oba Akiolu 1 has said that God will not allow any other party apart from All Progressives Congress (APC) to take over the State in the forthcoming general election in 2019.

He made this remark yesterday in Lagos at the 11th Annual Hijrah Lecture and Commissioning of the new House of Assembly Mosque.

He said the new Mosque was unique especially as it was built inside the Assembly complex where Bills are passed into law. Oba Akiolu also argued that it was not enough to build Mosque but that the custodians of the Mosque should be properly taken care of.

He also advised the custodians not to be involved in anything that would tarnish image of the religion.

Speaker of Lagos State of Assembly Mr. Mudashiru Obasa commended the congregation for donating fund for the rebuilding of the Mosque.

He described a Mosque as a Holy place to Worship Allah and supplicate to Him, adding that the custodians should do everything to ensure that it serves purpose for which it was built.

Governor Ambode was represented by the Commissioner for Home Affairs, Dr. AbdulHakeem Abdulateef who is the Chief Imam of the House of Assembly Mosque.

In his speech, the Chairman of the Muslim Community of the Assembly, Mr. Sikiru Osinowo thanked God Almighty for the completion of the mosque.

“We started the mosque project so that we could fulfil the purpose of our coming here. We have been Muslim Speakers, and God made it possible for us to build the new mosque during the time of the current Speaker, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa,” he said.

    The so called Oba of Lagos is right bcos he knows that the so called “Enlightened Yorubas” are suffering from a permanent mental slavery induced by Thief Tinubu and his Northern slave masters. Ironically, these group of Yorubas are proud slaves who are so comfortable with their slave status. They’ve resisted and will continue to resist any attempt that will deprive them not to remain enslaved by world renowned criminals like Thief Tinubu and his Northern slave masters..Ride on Oba bcos some Yorubas are sophisticated morons in love with their permanent slave status. My sympathy goes to those few Yorubas who have the courage to strive to free themselves from the humiliating bondage of Thief Tinubu and his Northern slave masters.

    I think that this man should stop being the oba of Lagos and join a political party. How can a supposed king with so many diverse subjects with diverse interests say such a thing. He is not the father that he is supposed to be.

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.
