I’m Not Afraid Of Buhari – Amosun

Published

Amosun

Governor of Ogun state, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has said that he does not fear President Muhammadu Buhari but God only.

The governor spoke at the 2018 edition of the state Christmas carol and service of nine lessons said this in response to a media report quoting him to have said that ‘he fears no one except Buhari and God’.

Amosun had addressed leaders and members of All Progressives Congress during a stakeholders meeting held on Friday at the party Secretariat in Abeokuta .

But in his clarification Amosun said, “You know this is our time as politician, a time when politicians will call black, blue. Yesterday I held a meeting with our people, and I said, I was brought up to fear God but only for me to see in the paper this morning that ‘Amosun says he fears God and Buhari’. No , it is only God I fear, the one that is alive, the only one that will say ‘Kufayakun’ and no one can change the fact I fear only God .

“Of course, I respect President Buhari, I love him and he loves me too but I know him he fears God because he is from God. He doesn’t beg for respect he commands and earns it. So it is only God that I fear.”

While delivering his Christmas message, the Secretary-General, Anglican communion worldwide, Anglican communion office and consultative council, London, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon explained that Nigeria’s problem is as a result of scanty knowledge of both the Holy bible and the Quran.

The cleric also noted that politicians are negatively using religion to divide the country but enjoined citizens to refuse any of such act.

His words, “Our major problem in this country today is that, so many people has scanty knowledge and understanding of the holy Quran and the holy Bible and they tend to propagate that little understanding of the word of God and anyone who does not agree with them, will be seen as an enemy.

“For the Christians, the real problem is sin because it was sin that caused the reincarnation and that is why Jesus came as sacrifice and as ransom for men.

“Jesus is a word that came in human flesh and as a result, he is a messenger and his mission is to save the people from their sins.

“Meanwhile God expect us all to humble ourselves but our politicians are negatively using religion to divide us in this country and the time has come for all us to say no to them.”

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.

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.
