During the event Obasanjo assured that Atiku disappoint Nigerians. In his exact words he said,

No matter the issues today, I know you will not disappoint. When we were in Abuja dealing with national and international issues, you did not take lightly the cultural heritage of your people.

“I am sure you will bring honour to this position and I want to thank you, Waziri for doing all of us proud,”

Atiku was honored as the seventh Wazirin Adamawa, by the Lamido of Adamawa, Dr. Mustapha Barkindo.

This clarifies the person whom Olusegun is in support of for president 2019.

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.
