You Were Not Elected Just To Obtain Loans

Governor Nyesom Wike has called out President Muhammadu Buhari.

 

According to the Rivers State Governor, Buhari was not only elected to borrow money.

 

He accused Buhari of not being effective in securing the lives and property of Nigerians.

 

Commenting on the widespread insecurity in the country, Wike accused Buhari of attempting to shift his constitutional powers of securing lives and property to governors.

 

The governor spoke at the commissioning of the 21-kilometre Odufor-Akpoku-Umuoye Road in Etche Local Government Area of the State on Tuesday.

 

Wike said the All Progressives Congress-led federal government has no idea of how to tackle the troubling security issues and make the country safe for Nigerians.

 

He enjoined the federal government to admit that it can no longer fulfil the promises it made to Nigerians, adding that admitting weakness publicly when there is failure makes a leader respectable.

 

“Mr President, you are the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. You appoint Inspector-General of Police, you appoint the Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Naval Staff, the Commissioner of Police, Director of Department of State Service, and other heads of security.

“Which one do we appoint? How can people appointed by Mr President be under me?

“It is not only to borrow money for Nigeria that you’re in charge. You must also be in charge of other things including security. Who signed order 10? Is it the governors?

“Mr. President was short of calling names of those governors who run to Aso Rock when they are supposed to stay in their states to see the needs of their states and people. Mr. President should have come out openly and said, my APC governors, stop worrying me. Go back to your states and do your work. On that, I support him.

“Thank God, Mr. President knows that I am not one of those that go to visit him over one problem or the other. I, as the governor of Rivers under PDP, you’ll never find me there.”

 

Critics of the Federal Government have lamented over the level of borrowing by the current administration but the Buhari government has defended its action.

The new order was given by the Court of Appeal in Calabar, according to a report by TheNation.

 

The court by so doing, removed Senator Steven Odey from the position of representing the people from the region.

 

It declared him the lawful candidate of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) in the December 5, 2020 By-election for the seat.

 

The three-man Appeal Tribunal headed by Hon. Justice Chioma I. Nwosu also invalidated the certificate of return earlier issued to Steven Odey by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC and directed it should be withdrawn.

Pastor Tunde Bakare’s Nigeria-for-Nigeria Movement Is Not Of God

Nigerians have been warned to avoid joining Pastor Tunde Bakare’s Nigeria-for-Nigeria movement because it is not of God.

 

Pastor Tunde Bakare is the leading pastor in charge of the Citadel Global Community Church.

 

Primate Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church gave the warning on Friday.

 

Primate Ayodele warned that the movement by Pastor Bakare is not of God, because a major disaster awaits Nigerians if they join the movement.

 

Speaking with DAILY POST, the clergyman stressed that the movement was aimed at putting Nigerians in further bondage.

 

Bakare had a few days ago launched the “Nigeria-for-Nigeria” group.

 

Addressing his members, Bakare had said the new group would be greater than the “Save Nigeria Group”, a pressure group which he convened in 2010.

 

“I am going to champion it and it will go like wildfire across this nation. Nigeria-for-Nigeria will be bigger than Save Nigeria Group,” the fiery pastor had said.

 

However, Primate Ayodele cautioned Nigerians against joining the group.

 

He noted that Bakare created the group to further his political ambition and not because it’s God’s agenda.

 

According to Primate Ayodele: “Tunde Bakare’s Nigeria for Nigeria movement is not divine, it is another means to put Nigerians in bondage again. Nigerians should not join this movement or else, another disaster awaits us.

 

“I am not talking as a politician but as God’s mouthpiece, Tunde Bakare’s Nigeria for Nigeria movement is another agenda for his political ambition and not God’s agenda.

 

“God is angry with the present government, those who have corrupted the system, Nigeria is stagnant, let’s stop deceiving ourselves, though a messiah will still come to our rescue.”

Resign Now Before Implicating APC – Kekemeke Tells Buni


Buni

Governor Mai Mala Buni

Isaac Kekemeke, the former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state has appealed to Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State to resign as the party’s Caretaker Committee Chairman.

According to Kekemeke, the Caretaker Committee Chairman should throw in the towel to prevent the party from walking on a landmine.

During the Wednesday judgment, where the election of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu was upheld after a four-to-three judgment, the seven justices of the Supreme Court agreed the party was in violation of the Nigerian constitution and the party’s constitution.

Speaking in Akure, the Ondo State capital, Kekemeke stated that the verdict of the apex court implied that APC is lawless which he said was a dangerous signal for the party.

While calling for the immediate convocation of a committee for conduct of the party’s forthcoming congresses and national convention, Kekemeke maintained that with Buni in the saddle, he might implicate the party.

“In saner climes, Governor Buni and all those serving in executive positions and are in the APC Caretaker Committee should have stepped down for an ad hoc committee or some emergency committee to start immediately the process of a convention with a view to electing officials who will have to adopt or approve decisions taken so that opposition parties or aggrieved members do not wait for us,” he said.
