Buhari promised not to change during the All Progressives (APC) presidential campaign at the Aper Aku Stadium in Makurdi, Benue State. He pledged to remain steadfast and focused. Listing his administration’s achievements in the past three and half years, the President said: “I assure you, I am not going to change. I am going to be consistent. I will remain steadfast. Anybody who abuses trust will be exposed and will be dispossessed.
 
“I am convinced that you believe in what we are doing and that you stand to support us even further. When I came for your vote in 2015, I promised three fundamental issues based on our party manifesto –  security, economy and fighting corruptionWe will do roads, rail lines and provide electricity with monies recovered from looters,” he added
 
He noted that the food security attained by the government under his watch had drastically reduced food importationThe President noted that many of those seeking white-collar jobs had embraced farming without regrets. He urged others to do the same.
 
The President also urged the Benue people to vote for APC candidates.
 
APC National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole said that governors have the responsibility to ensure peace and security in their states, noting that security is not on the exclusive list. He also pointed out that peace and unity cannot be achieved from the barrel of guns. Oshiomhole said that a community is in danger if the leader is dishonest or lies, adding, “but with President Buhari, Nigeria is safe.”
According to him, the APC candidate in the state, Emmanuel Jime, will do well to follow the footsteps of Plateau State Simon Lalong in handling herders and farmers crisis, when elected.
 
“We don’t want leaders that will blame others for their failures,” he said
 
Stressing that President Buhari has done well by giving out bailouts to state governments, he said some governors diverted the money and refused to pay salaries and turned round to whip up sentiments.
 
The former Edo State governor said: “I have come with a message of hope that with Jime as governor, salaries will be paid in Benue State as at when due.”
 
He said that Nigeria had stopped importing rice, and the billions saved in importing expired rice from India and Malaysia, are now in the hands of local rice farmers.
 
Oshiomhole pointed out that anybody supporting importation of food is anti-Benue since the state is “the food basket of the nation”. He also urged the people to reject any leader who will sell the nation’s assets.
 
According to him, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will use the economy to favour his friends.

To this end, he said Nigeria could not return to second hand.
 
He said nobody had the right to bear firearms apart from the authorised security agencies.
 
According to him, governors should also not be allowed to misuse police personnel in their states.
 
The APC National Campaign Council Vice Chairman (North), Senator George Akume, recalled that President Buhari on assumption of in 2015 made a covenant with the people to tackle three things, economy, security and corruption – which he has done very well.
 
Many Nigerians, he noted, are now running away from lodging their money in banks because of the fear of Buhari.
 
Said Akume: “Buhari is one of the few Nigerians not used to flamboyant lifestyle, pointing out that he had no oil well and personal aircraft.
 
He said there was a governor in one of the North central states who is 100 times richer than President Buhari with wealth gathered within three and half years in government.
 
Stressing that Buhari has managed the economy very well, Akume said that Buhari’s landmark project is impacting positively on the lives of the people.
 
He said: “Mr President, you promised to provide infrastructure, that is why we call you Mr. Infrastructure, and it’s all over the country for people to see. You are a doer and not a talker. Your projects are measurable.”
Confirming the people’s love for the President, Akume said that the Benue people had no problem with herdsmen while he was at the helm of affairs for eight years.
 
He, therefore, urged the leaders not to hide their incompetence behind the crisis.
 
Giving a verdict of how the voting will go in the state during the presidential election, Akume said that 70 per cent will go to President Buhari while Atiku will get 30 percent.
 
He also urged the President to ignore any publication because they know how they were procuredMaintaining that there are local despots who do not respect court orders in the state, the former governor said that President Buhari respects the rule of law, especially by not interfering in the INEC and court judgement on APC governorship candidate in Zamfara State.
 
Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong said his state initially was faced the type of crisis Benue was going through until he brought everyone together for dialogue.

“We must learn to work with everybody in the state irrespective of their tribe because everyone matters in building a political party.
“Before the last general election, we assured our members in the state that we will organise free, fair and credible primaries for all aspirants.
“At the end of all the primaries, our party members realised that we meant business when we said we will organise credible primaries for aspirants because some aspirants close to me lost while some that are not close to me also won.”

Kwara by-election: Tribunal sacks APC lawmaker, declares PDP winner

Published

The Kwara State of Assembly Rerun Petition Tribunal , on Monday , nullified the victory of Adam Rufai of the All Progressives in the by - for Patigi Constituency .
The tribunal subsequently declared Salihu Mohammed Gada of the Peoples Democratic Party winner of the by -election held on March 14 , 2020 .
However, the Kwara State chapter of APC rejected the judgment of the tribunal which declared the candidate of PDP the winner of the recent Patigi by -election .
The seat became vacant when Rufai ’s brother , Saidu Ahmed , died in December 2019 after a brief illness .
It explained that the judgment was based on the difference between ‘ Adam ’ and ‘Adama ’ on the certificate of the candidate of the APC .
Kwara APC made the complaint in a press statement by its Publicity Secretary , Folaranmi Aro , on Monday .
The statement was titled , ‘ APC rejects , to appeal Tribunal ’ s judgment on Patigi … Says judgment a judicial subversion of people ’s mandate’.
Aro complained that PDP never called any witness from the examination body to substantiate its claim that APC candidate was not the owner of the certificate he tendered for his election .Part of the statement read, “ The tribunal did not deny that we won the election overwhelmingly . It instead hid under a feeble excuse that the names of our candidate on the two certificates he presented to the electoral body are slightly different from each other to award our mandate to the opposition .
“ It is a sad day for democracy as the judgment is a slap on thousands of the electorate who stood in the sun to make their choices .
“ This judgment is a violent attack on the position of the Supreme Court in many established cases where an alphabet was either omitted or added to a candidate ’ s name. We are definitely going to appeal the judgment because it signals danger for our democracy and amounted to stealing the mandate of the people . The judgment is a judicial subversion of the mandate of the people . ”
Meanwhile, a former senate president , Bukola Saraki , has congratulated Yahaya over the judgment .
The former Kwara State tweeted , “ A big congrats to the candidate of our party @OfficialPDPNig for the State Assembly by -election held in Patigi , Kwara State on 14 th March, 2020 . Hon . Salihu Muhammad Yahaya has just been declared the winner by a tribunal. I also congratulate all our stakeholders for their steadfastness .
