the All Progressives Congress, APC, has alleged that some people loyal to Muhammadu Buhari, the president of Nigeria, have focused there energies on “strategies to decimate the Tinubu-led brain trust that brought Buhari to power.”
In a statement published by Daily Post on Wednesday, February 21, 2018, the APC chieftain said Buhari made Bola Tinubu, the former Lagos State governor, a “mockery in all pepper soup joints” after declaring that he is not the national leader of the party.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu means different things to different people. But if dynamic opposition is the life-wire of a democracy, it is very fitting then to name him the saviour of Nigeria’s current democratic journey.”

Progressives Congress, APC, has written a scathing letter to the national chairman of the party, John Odigie-Oyegun, accusing him of sabotage.
Tinubu, who copied the president, vice-president, senate president and speaker of the house of representatives, pointedly accused Odigie-Oyegun of contravening the spirit of the discussions both of them had at the party secretariat when President Muhammadu Buhari gave him the assignment of reconciling aggrieved members.
In the letter, dated February 21, 2018, the former governor of Lagos state said “disappointment greeted me when I discovered that you had swiftly acted in contravention of the spirit of our discussions. Instead of being a bulwark of support as promised, you positioned yourself in active opposition to the goal of resuscitating the progressive and democratic nature of APC”.

CROSS RIVER: 73,000 PVC'S YET TO BE COLLECTED







The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Cross River, Frankland Briyai, has said that 73,195 Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) have yet to be collected by their owners in the state since 2015.
Mr. Briyai said this on Thursday in Calabar, the state capital when he hosted a meeting of heads of Federal Government establishments in Cross River, at the state office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
He urged registered voters to collect their PVCs to enable them to vote in the 2019 elections.

PVC IS NOT ENOUGH, GET INVOLVED








Nigerians’ political consciousness has been on a steady growth since 2010, following the constitutional crises that embroiled the presidency. President Umaru Yar’Adua was bed-ridden, unconscious in a hospital somewhere in Saudi Arabia and his handlers thought he needn’t hand over to his deputy to be Acting President. So, for about three months, Nigeria was just floating directionless; no president, no Acting president, no leadership, no authority. In fact, the 2010 budget bill could not be signed because the president was unconscious and incommunicado in Arabia. The vice president had no constitutional powers to sign the Bill. This led many Nigerians to taking to the streets in protest that Goodluck Jonathan be appointed as the Acting president till Yar’Adua’s return. I was part of this group, not because I believed Goodluck would make a better president but because that was the right thing to do at that time.

CROSS RIVER: APC CRISIS DEEPENS, PARTY CHIEFTAINS TACKLES OYEGUN, ONI


John Odigie-Oyegun



The intra party dispute rocking the Cross River State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) seems to be worsening as the acting state Chairman of the party, Hon. Cletus Obun, accused the APC national leadership of fueling the crisis.
Following some misgivings they had, Obun and some stakeholders of the party from the state yesterday rejected plan by the National Working Committee (NWC) to hold a special congress to elect a substantive chairman.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja, Obun, who is also the state vice chairman from the Central senatorial district, said the crisis in the state chapter has been allowed to fester because the National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie Oyegun, failed to stand firm so that the relevant party rules can operate.

SENATORS INDICT, SACK ADAMU AS NORTHERN SENATORS FORUM CHAIRMAN

The crisis in the Senate over the order of next year’s general elections took a new twist yesterday as the Northern Senators’ Forum announced the removal of its chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu (APC, Nasarawa).
Former Sokoto State governor, Senator Aliu Wammako (Sokoto North), was immediately announced as a replacement.

Last week, Adamu had led nine senators in protest against the chamber’s reversal of the election schedule, which demanded the National Assembly election come first while the presidential hold last.

2019: GOODLUCK BUHARI

Muhammadu Buhari didn’t have to be superlatively wealthy, in a worldly sense, for him to discern the inherent vanity of sheer materialism. He didn’t need the wisdom of the ancient Jewish king to know that all materialism winds up in absolute nothingness. Apparently, the ascetic army general had arrived at this not-so-common knowledge, intuitively. The man overtly abhors materialism; and, by logical reasoning, he loathes all those who wouldn’t scruple to sacrifice their reputation on the altar of materialism – consider the undiminished passion with which he pursues Nigeria’s treasury looters. We have been told that the Nigerian president is constitutionally more powerful than the president of the United States of America. If this reality is juxtaposed with the material wealth which the Nigerian president is at liberty to appropriate or dispense of, Buhari could well pass as a virtuous man; a good man, if you please. There is a consensus on this. The African Union (AU) just-concluded conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, which unanimously recognised Buhari as a credible anti-graft reference point is an affirmation of that consensus.
