Presidential election: Oshiomhole speaks on Buhari being desperate for power oshiomhole speaks 300x180

 

The National Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Oshiomhole, has insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari is not a sit-tight President.

NAN reports that Oshiomhole, who spoke at a news conference in Abuja on Wednesday, said the president needed a second term to consolidate on his achievements and to move Nigeria to the next level.

“We are committed to free and fair elections and President Buhari is not a sit-tight President,” the APC national chairman said.

Oshiomhole said what President Buhari was asking for, was a second term in office, which was constitutional, saying his desire was to take Nigerians to the next level of infrastructure and economic development.

“Allowing President Buhari and the APC Government to go for a second term in office, will sustain achievements made so far and take the country to the next level of infrastructure and economic development,” he said.

The APC national chairman, however, said that as Nigerians would go to the polls on Saturday, they should reflect on certain statements made by Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate during his campaigns.

This, he said, included Atiku’s statement on privatisation, corruption, trader money and restructuring.

Oshiomhole recalled that Atiku during one of his campaigns had said that rather than prosecute looters of public treasury, he would pardon them.

He also recalled that Atiku in one of the statements during his campaigns, said he would privatise the country’s national assets.

The APC national chairman said this would not be in the interest of the common man.

He said that the President Buhari-led administration had been able to curtail the Boko Haram menace and other forms of insecurity in some parts of the country.

“The country and the North-East are much safer now, compared to the situation in the past,” Oshiomhole said.

The APC national chairman said that the APC administration even with declining revenue, had devoted much more funds to critical sectors of the country like rail, road and electricity.

Oshiomhole noted that without spending a fraction of what the PDP spent while it was in power for 16 years, the APC had achieved much more in terms of infrastructure development.

He assured Nigerians and the international community that the coming elections would be free, credible and fair, adding that it would reflect the wishes of the people.

He stressed that the APC was opposed to vote buying and would not encourage it in anyway.

The APC national chairman specifically assured foreign observers of their safety, saying that: “they are our friends and guests; they do not have any reason whatsoever, to be afraid, we see them as partners in progress”.

He, however, maintained that Nigeria is an independent and sovereign nation and would, therefore, not tolerate undue interference in its internal affairs by international community.

Oshiomhole urged politicians, the media and the general public to place the nation’s interest above all other interests, before, during and after the elections.

“We should all work had to uphold the integrity and sovereignty of out nation, as politicians and as media practitioners, let us pray that as we go for these elections, it will be a simple exercise,” he said.

He debunked insinuations that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was working in favour of the APC.

The national chairman expressed optimism that the APC would win the elections in a Landslide, adding that the party did not have to rig to win the polls.

HEAVY BLOW! PDP LOOKS IN SHOCK AS ADELEKE GETS FRESH SHOCKER THAT FAVOURS OYETOLA OF APC

The candidate of opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in last year’s governorship election in Osun, Senator Ademola Adeleke has received a heavy blow.
Adeleke is locked in a fierce legal battle with Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the ruling party over the top seat following the outcome of the governorship election held in the state in 2018.
The hard knock on Adeleke came as the Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said that he is unfit to govern the state.

According to Daily Post, the party, in a statement issued by its spokesman, Kunle Oyatomi, said the scandals surrounding Adeleke’s personality and qualifications were embarrassing, which informed the reasons why some PDP members approached the court for clarity over his eligibility to hold such public office.

The APC said, “Adeleke’s personality is problematic and embarrassingly scandalous in regard to his educational qualifications“If the PDP as a political party is not embarrassed by the scandals surrounding Adeleke’s personality and qualifications, some of its members are concerned enough to seek clarity in courtBut for the PDP through its chairman, Hon. Soji Adagunodo, to turn around and accuse the APC of instigating PDP’S members, led by Mr Ajayi Shuaib, to seek clarity in court appears dumb to us.
“Let’s remind the PDP that when Adeleke was rejected by the APC years back for the senatorial election, the PDP adopted him within hours and dumped their best qualified and professional mindsHowever, what they did not factor into their hasty adoption was the potentially obvious down sides of the young man. They did not really think it through,” the APC said.

The APC castigated the PDP for failing to take responsibility for the baggage it invited to their party because it was desperate to win election. “We have no interest in Adeleke. We rejected him long ago. Now that the PDP is discovering why the APC dumped him, it is just reasonable that the PDP carries its cross,” it said.
The APC maintained that, “the PDP is still living in darkness. No matter how hard that party tries, it cannot get Osun people to repeat the tragedy of 2003.”

The legal battle between Adeleke and Governor Oyetola has moved up to the Court of Appeal where the Governor won the case.

The Peoples Democratic Party on Friday gave an interesting submission to buttress its stand that Justice Zainab Bulkachawa who is the president of the Court of Appeal should not be on the team to decide the fate of the Presidential election result as challenged by its candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

In its submission, the party and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar,  on Friday told the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal  in Abuja  that Aliyu Haidar Abubakar, son of the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, campaigned for  President Muhammadu Buhari  ahead of the February 23 presidential poll.

They alleged that Abubakar was  not only a card-carrying member of  the All Progressives Congress, but  also  contested  the party’s governorship primary election  in  Gombe State.

They  informed the tribunal that they had attached the Facebook printout of the wall of the said biological son of Bulkachuwa showing his campaign posts, photographs and posters canvassing votes for himself as a governorship aspirant and Buhari’s re-election bid  to their motion  as an exhibit.

The petitioners  alleged, as previously stated in the letter which the PDP  on May 9 sent to  the judge’s  office, that her husband, Adamu Bulkachuwa, won a senatorial seat  in the National Assembly poll, held alongside the February 23 election,  on the platform of the APC.

They therefore  stated in a motion filed before the five-man tribunal  that Justice  Bulkachuwa’s  close family ties to top  APC members would hinder her from handling the proceedings of the tribunal without bias.

The petitioners  insisted on  Justice Bulkachuwa disqualifying  herself as a member and head of the tribunal.

Demanding  her  replacement  on the panel, they urged her to recuse herself from further participation in the proceedings of the tribunal.

The affidavit deposed to by the Deputy National Secretary of the PDP, Emmanuel Agbo,  filed in support of the motion read in part, “I know that as a spouse of  Adamu Bulkachuwa,  Justice Zainab  Bulkachuwa is so closely related to Adamu Bulkachuwa that she cannot fairly hear and determine the instant petition without eliciting the suspicion and anxiety of all right thinking persons, including myself.

PRESIDENT, JUSTICE AYO SALAMI, AT THE VALEDICTORY COURT SESSION OF THE COURT IN HONOUR OF
JUSTICE SALAMI IN ABUJA ON THURSDAY (31/10/13).

“The Court of Appeal has more than 80 justices who are able and competent to participate in the hearing and determination of the extant petition in the absence of  Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa.

“I also know that her biological son, Aliyu Haidar Abubakar is a card-carrying member of the 3rd respondent (APC) and he contested the governorship  primary election of the 3rd respondent  in Gombe State.

“Attached hereto and marked Exhibit 2 is a printout made today from the Facebook page named Aliyu Haidar Abubakar Volunteer Group containing his campaign posters, photographs and various posts showing his campaign messages for himself and the 2nd respondent, both of whom contested on the platform of the 3rd respondent. I also attach hereto and marked Exhibit 3 a printout of a Daily Post online news publication in which Aliyu  Abubakar was prominently featured as the son of  Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa and who contested the governorship primary  of Gombe State on the platform of the 3rd respondent.”

They added that Bauchi State, which was one of the three senatorial districts Bulkachuwa’s husband would be representing at the Senate when sworn in, “is one of the focal states in which the petitioners/applicants have all alleged that electoral infractions occurred”.

They therefore sought “an order that  Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, President of the Court of Appeal, and the presiding justice of the panel hearing petition numbered CA/PEPC/2019 be recused from further sitting or participating in the proceedings in this petition and be replaced by another justice of this honourable court to sit in her  place to hear and determine the petition”.

Bulkachuwa, who led a five-man panel of the tribunal  during  Wednesday’s proceedings had directed the petitioners to file a formal application that would be heard and ruled upon in the open court.

In a  letter signed by its National Chairman, Uche Secondus, and its National Secretary, Umaru Tsauri, the PDP  complained that Bulkachuwa could have by a comment she made during the inaugural sitting of the tribunal on May 8 prejudged its petition challenging the outcome of the  presidential election.

It stated that Bulkachuwa’s claim in her speech to the effect that there would always be complaints no matter how an election was well-conducted had “rocked” its confidence in the panel led by her.

Secondus and the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, attended  Wednesday’s proceedings.

Bulkachuwa appeared to have initially overlooked the earlier letter sent by the PDP asking her to withdraw from the panel until the petitioners’ lead councel, Dr Livy Uzoukwu (SAN), requested a meeting between the panel members and the representatives of the legal teams of the  parties to the case on Wednesday.

Uzoukwu made the request for the meeting shortly after lawyers announced  their appearances at the beginning of  Wednesday’s proceedings.

The lawyers representing the respondents –  Independent National Electoral Commission, President Muhammadu Buhari and APC – did not oppose the request for the meeting.

Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) led Buhari’s legal team, while Mr Yunus Usman (SAN) led the INEC’s team, and  Lateef Fagbemi (SAN)  APC’s team.

Ten lawyers, with  two representing each of the PDP, Atiku, INEC, Buhari and the APC met with the panel members in chambers.

At the end of the meeting, Bulkachuwa while announcing the decision of the panel following the meeting with the lawyers, said Uzoukwu requested that she should recuse herself from the panel at the meeting.

She said the request by Uzoukwu was based on the reasons cited by the PDP in its letter earlier sent to her on May 9.

She said since the matter was already in the public domain, the panel had decided to have the issue treated openly.

Uzoukwu said  on Wednesday his team would file a formal application to that effect on Thursday.

The respondents’ lawyers said they would need time to respond to the application.

The tribunal then directed the petitioners to file their application and adjourned till May 22 for its hearing.

In compliance with the directive, the motion signed by a member of the petitioners’ legal team, Prof Maxwell Gidado (SAN), was filed on Thursday.

The motion was served on the three respondents on Friday, another member of the petitioners’ legal team, Chief Chris Uche (SAN), confirmed to one of  our correspondents on Friday.

The respondents are expected to file their replies to the motion on  Monday.

The petition jointly filed by Atiku and the PDP is one of the four filed before the tribunal to challenge Buhari’s victory at the poll.
