Buhari

Former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Pastor Reno Omokri has insisted that president Muhammadu Buhari lied during his 2019 budget presentation to the joint session of the national assembly on Wednesday.

During the budget presentation, President Buhari was booed by some lawmakers, while some others shouted “lies!”and “No!” whenever he mentioned some projects he said his government has done in the country.

Meanwhile, Omokri who had released a report yesterday titled, “Debunking The Lies in Buhari’s Budget,” has also backed his stand with a video clip wherein he maintains that the president lied on some projects he claimed his administration has completed.

Pastor Omokri, in the recent video shared on his twitter handle, claimed President Buhari lied about completing the Ogwashi-Ukwu Dam in Delta State.

In the video, the area shown as the site for the claimed dam still remains clearly arid, with no sign of a completed project.

According to Omokri, “WATCH and RETWEET: On December 19, 2018, President @MBuhari presented the 2019 Budget. In his speech at the National Assembly he claimed his government had completed and commissioned the Ogwashi-Ukwu Dam in Delta State. Here is video evidence Buhari LIED #Buhari2019BudgetLies.”

    Your hatred cannot stop Jubril of Sudan from winning 2019 election. He became the President in 2015 without your vote and he can still win without your wish. He doesn’t need your support and vote before becoming the President. If you like, like him, if you like don’t like him Na your own PALAVA. Up Jubril of Sudan, we like you.

    A President that openly lies must
    be booed even to the heavens.
    All rationally minded Nigerians should
    commend the National
    Assembly members for telling
    the president to his face that you are lying.
    That is courage and convictions
    . Hypocrisy kills a society,
    like Nigeria is gradually been killed
    now by the most clueless leaders
    and their unpatriotic supporters.

2023 Presidency: I Won’t Contest, Says El-Rufai

Published

el-rufai - Kaduna State Governor

The Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasiru Ahmad El-Rufai, has said that he will not contest for the 2023 presidency.

In an interview with Hausa Service of the BBC, El-Rufai suggested that the 2023 presidency be zoned to the southern part of the country after the expiration of the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said: “Many have been saying that I want to contest for president since I was a Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

“This does not make sense.

“I do not want [to contest the Nigerian presidency].

“It’s God that gives power, whether you like it or not.

“If He [God] wants, He [God] will give it to you, but I have never intended to contest for the presidency of Nigeria and nobody can say I did,” El-Rufai added.

El-Rufai also said that there is a standing agreement that if the north rules for eight years, the presidency should be zoned to the south, stressing that although the agreement was not enshrined in the constitution, politicians are aware of it.

The governor, who is in his second tenure, said: “That is why I came out and said that after President Buhari’s eight years, no northerner should contest for the office.

“Let the southerners also have eight years.”

President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, Mallam Mamman Daura, had said on Tuesday 27 July, 2020, that there was no need for zoning of presidential ticket to any part of the country.

Daura said competence should be given priority in the choice of presidential candidate in 2023.

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), the main opposition party; Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as well as many socio-political groups in the country have since kicked against Daura’s position over zoning of position of the president.

The Presidency also distanced itself from Daura’s comment.

However, while insisting on zoning, El-Rufai wants competency to be considered as well.

El-Rufai stated that he had always prioritized merit in his appointments over regionality.

“If you look at the way I run my affairs, I don’t consider regionality of appointees.

“I rather consider their merit and commitment to public trust.”

Your Woeful Leadership Of Edo Will Hopefully Be Brought To An End Soon — Tinubu Tells Obaseki

Published

on

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, has accused the Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki, of being behind the political crisis rocking the state House of Assembly, adding that the governor’s woeful leadership in the state will hopefully come to an end soon.

In a statement released on Friday August 7, Tinubu accused Governor Obaseki of ”making a mockery of Nigeria’s constitution by blocking the timely inauguration of two-thirds of the elected members of the Edo State House of Assembly, and now resorting to the strong-arm tactics of dictators.”

His statement reads;

”IN DEFENCE OF CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY

The recent actions of the Governor of Edo State represent the gravest possible assault on constitutional democracy and the rule of law and escalation of violence and tension in the state he purports to govern.

Not satisfied with making a mockery of our constitution by blocking the timely inauguration of two-thirds of the elected members of the Edo State House of Assembly, Governor Obaseki has now resorted to the strong-arm tactics of dictators.

First, he sponsors hoodlums to deface, indeed destroy, parts of the House of Assembly Building in Benin, feigning the building is undergoing renovation. Then, he imports sand and gravels to prevent access to the assembly complex.

In effect, the man has spent state funds to thwart the very apparatus of the state government he was sworn to uphold. He has squandered public money to defeat the very will of the public. This is tragic beyond words.

As a pretext for his refusal to allow the Edo House of Assembly to function, Governor Obaseki’s actions are perverse. This is a cowardly act and a move to thwart representative democracy in Edo.

No renovation has been planned for the state house building. No appropriation was made in the state’s budget. The only reason any renovation could be deemed necessary is the destruction wrought by his own goons.

Governor Obaseki’s governance of Edo State recalls the worst excesses of our military past and represents a direct threat to the democratic order by his refusal to permit duly elected members of the Edo State House of Assembly to perform their constitutional duties.

Governor Obaseki betrayed contempt for the people of his state and, unfortunately, his ignorance of Nigeria’s constitutional order. As a Governor he ought to know better than to obstruct the functioning of his own legislature, but perhaps he is in need of a quick lesson.

Indeed, it is no coincidence that of the three arms of government, the powers of the legislature are enumerated first, in our Constitution.The legislature is the authority imbued with the power to make laws for the peace, order and good governance of the federation and states

Indeed, the Constitution makes clear that a Governor’s role primarily extends to the maintenance and implementation of the laws set down for him by his state’s legislature.

Although Governor Obaseki’s conduct in the past year is undoubtedly impeachable, these legislators have made no threat to impeach the Governor. Their only desire is to peacefully perform the duties asked of them by the constituents who elected them.

The rule of law and preservation of democracy is too important to sacrifice at the altar of any one man’s ambition. Governor Obaseki’s woeful leadership of Edo State will hopefully be brought to an end soon by the very people whose rights he has so carelessly trampled upon.

One can only hope that the damage he is doing to the most important of the state’s democratic institutions can just as easily be repaired.”
