President Muhammadu Buhari’s constituency is the army of the poor. We are building a country where those who work will be able to eat, not those who use telephones to make billions without working for it.

APC National chairman, Adams Oshiomhole has made allegations on former President Olusegun Obasanjo, saying he is plotting to rule over Nigeria by proxy. He added that the Constituency of the ruling president, President Buhari is the army of the poor.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has pledged his support to Atiku Abubakar during the forthcoming general election in Nigeria. Obasanjo reassured Nigerians that Atiku will not fail them during the turbaning of Atiku  as the 7th Wazirin Adamawa, by the Lamido of Adamawa, Dr. Mustapha Barkindo.

This may be reason behind Oshiomhole’s statement. Oshiomhole made the statement while addressing former PDP (People’s Democratic Party) members and Kwankwasiyya Movement members who defected to the APC (All Progressive Congress) at the Sani Abacha Stadium. Oshiomhole said

Obasanjo’s dream to rule Nigeria by proxy will not succeed. It is a wonderful day that all the progressives have come together to reinforce power to sustain our democracy. Never again should this country be governed by opportunists. “President Muhammadu Buhari’s constituency is the army of the poor. We are building a country where those who work will be able to eat, not those who use telephones to make billions without working for it. “We are waiting for the message and shall respond appropriately to their message. This country must move forward. It does not belong to those who have a history of taking so much out of the system even as they cannot show what they have put into the system.

However, President Buhari has revealed plans despite long delay in the passage of the 2018 budget, and in the approval of the budget’s Borrowing Plan. He said that the presidency will focus on infrastructure development. In his exact words, he said.

In spite of the long delay in the passage of the 2018 budget, and in the approval of the budget’s Borrowing Plan, we will continue to demonstrate our commitment to infrastructure development. Developing infrastructure is one of the best things any Government can do for Nigerians.

PDP presidential candidate for 2019 general election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has made comments to the shifting of general election which was supposed to hold today.

We like to recap that INEC shifted the General Election to 23rd February while gubernatorial elections hold on 9th March.

Atiku Abubakar via his social media handle dropped his thoughts on the postponed general election. He attributed the postponement as fraud, when he likened it to “the case of the hand of Esau but the voice of Jacob”.

Atiku Abubakar reacts to postponed 2019 general election

Atiku Abubakar writes.

Dear citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,

As you know, the Independent National Electoral Commission has announced a postponement of the elections until 23 February and 9 March respectively. The Buhari administration has had more than enough time and money to prepare for these elections and the Nigerian people were poised and ready to perform their civic responsibility by voting in the elections earlier scheduled for Saturday, 16 February, 2019. This postponement is obviously a case of the hand of Esau but the voice of Jacob. By instigating this postponement, the Buhari administration hopes to disenfranchise the Nigerian electorate in order to ensure that turn out is low on the rescheduled date. Nigerians must frustrate their plans by coming out in even greater numbers on Saturday, 23 February and Saturday, 9 March respectively. Knowing that the Nigerian people are determined to reject them, they are desperate and will do anything in their power to avoid their rejection by the Nigerian people. Their plan is to provoke the public, hoping for a negative reaction, and then use that as an excuse for further anti-democratic acts. As such, I call on all Nigerians to be patient. We have tolerated the maladministration of this government for four years. We can extend our tolerance a few more days and give them our verdict via our votes. Maintain the peace and be law abiding. Do not react to this provocation with anger, violence or any action that might be exploited by those who do not want this election to hold.
Remain calm. We will overcome this. You can postpone an election, but you cannot postpone destiny.

Please come out to vote on Saturday, 23 February and Saturday, 9 March respectively. Frustrate those who do not want this election to hold by coming out in very large numbers. That is the best antidote to their plans. May God bless you and may God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Dr. Chima Amadi unravels possible truth behind postponed 2019 General Election

Published

Dr Chima unravels what may look like a good reason why INEC postponed the 2019 General Election. INEC has not really been in complete control over the election and electoral materials, hence the burning, diverting and disappearance of materials.

Read what Dr. Chima Amadi wrote.

You think the postponement was ordinary? You sit down in your living room gulping down cheep beer and shouting “this incompetence must not be tolerated” but know absolutely nothing about how your country is being ran! When you had the CBN deliberately muddling the delivery of Sensitive materials, you think that’s ordinary? When the government was putting pressure on the Commission to go ahead with elections even when they knew that deployments had been hampered, you think that’s ordinary? When flights conveying sensitive materials Scheduled to land in some airports were diverted to other states that were so far away from their initial destinations, you think that’s ordinary? When Buharists were rejoicing that elections would be staggered, you think that’s ordinary? When unwholesome pressure was being Mounted on the Commission to still proceed with the elections when it was obvious that some states would not be participating, you think that’s ordinary? When the govt deliberately delayed the release of already budgeted funds till very late in the day thereby delaying The mobilization of vendors,you think that’s ordinary?When mysterious fires kept destroying INEC facilities and sensitive materials,you think that’s ordinary?You think it’s ordinary that Pilots conveying sensitive materials from the Nigerian Airforce were asked to return to base?
This postponement was the culmination of several clandestine actions to achieve a staggered election but the INEC stood Its ground. The Commission at a point wanted just one day to surmount the challenges but the “unseen forces” had apparently penetrated NURTW, the Union INEC contracted to move 429,000,000 ballot papers & frustrated that move. Then the issue of Card Readers. INEC needed a minimum of five days to configure the replacement Card Readers that were deployed to Anambra, Plateau and Abia. The INEC Chairman stood by Nigeria. In resisting the concerted attempt to get him to stagger the elections and foist an Osun strategy on Nigerians, it is time for Nigerians to stand by him. It is better to postpone than go ahead and risk a major national disaster.
