OPC Caution Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB to carry out the threat to attack Yorubas Nnamdi Kanu

A faction of the Oodua People’s , known as New Era, has described leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, as a ‘loquacious coward’ who after fleeing now wants to bring mayhem into the country.

The group said this in reaction to the threat by the IPOB leader to attack Southwesterner if Igbos living in their region were killed in any post- violence.

However, Comrade Adesina Akinpelu, National Public Relations Officer (PRO) of New Era OPC, in a press release made available to journalists in Ibadan yesterday, said: “Nnamdi Kanu is nothing but a ‘loquacious coward’ who wants to take advantage of every situation to advance his narrow-minded interest.

“If not for the purpose of setting the record straight; OPC would not have descended so low to react to Kanu’s careless postulations.

“This is a guy who brainwashed many young Igbo youths into joining IPOB and left them to be killed by soldiers. This coward who fled the country like a thief in the night is now threatening to attack land.

“We urge him to carry out the threat. What soldiers did to him and his brainwashed members will be a ‘child play’ compare to what we would do to them.”

Notwithstanding his reaction to Kanu’s threat, Akinpelu said his group noted the reported attacks on people of Igbo tribe living in Lagos State during the and National Assembly elections.

He called for the immediate arrest of those who perpetrated the attacks.

He said: “We members of Oodua People’s Congress, New Era, condemn in its totality the recent attack on Igbo people in Lagos State over their decision to cast their votes to those they want.

“How can any sensible person attack fellow human being just because he or she has a preferred candidate to for? Every Nigerian has the right to for any candidate he or she wants. Those miscreants who attacked and prevented law abiding Igbo people from voting in Lagos State and their sponsors must be fished out and made to pay for their crimes.”

Akinpelu added that the former OPC members who took part in the attack have deviated from what OPC stands for and so they must be made to pay for their crimes as they are bad eggs.

“These are the bad eggs who are no longer members of the OPC. These are the miscreants that we are talking about. We organised an election stakeholders meeting before the election in Ibadan and we raised the alarm that some former OPC members were trying compromise the integrity of the Congress by becoming attack dogs to a high profile politician in Lagos State,” he explained.

Abass Sulaiman Adegoke, well known as Adegoke is a student of Federal Polytechnic Ede studying Civil Engineering, He is a media enthusiast, loves traveling, and has a special interest in personal development.

Buhari told the Presidential Election Tribunal that, by the result announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, he (Buhari) and his party, were victorious in the last election.

The APC candidate also told the Tribunal that the claim by Atiku and the PDP that the tradermoni policy of the government was a -buying measure was not true.

According to Buhari, the policy formed one of the many social intervention policies his government had put in place, directed at alleviating the suffering of the masses.

Buhari asked the Tribunal to ignore the claim by the petitioners that they won by results they obtained from a purported INEC server because it lacked legal basis.

Buhari further challenged Atiku and PDP to show evidence that their votes were depleted and manipulated.

This was contained in a preliminary objection filed by his group of lawyers in response to Atiku’s petition.

President Buhari also faulted the petitioners’ allegations of vote manipulation made against some security personnel, some named private individuals and organisations, without making them parties to the petition.

Buhari asked the Tribunal to throw aside Atiku, PDP’s petition on the grounds that the reliefs sought by the petitioners were frivolous.

He added that “The entire reliefs are not justifiable, as the petitioners, who claim to have scored majority of lawful votes insubstantial number of states, are also questioning their own return in those states.

“The petitioners cannot act as petitioners and respondents in the same petition.

“The alternative relief sought is self-defeating, apart from being frivolous.

“The election to the of President on 23rd F February, 2019, was conducted in substantial compliance with the provision of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended),” he said.

Buhari, challenged the petitioners to produce “specifics of website: www.factsdontlien .com, including its domain owner, proprietor, lessee, lessor; etc., pleaded in paragraph 29 of the petition.

“Details of the electronic data on the servers of the 1st respondent (INEC), including the time, the details were downloaded, the person who downloaded them and the means of downloading (paragraph 29 of the petition).

“The documents from the 1st respondent, publishing the registered voters in , as 84, 004, 084 and the number of PVCs collected as 72,775,502 (paragraph 30 of the petition).

“Details and documents, showing a breakdown of the electronically collated votes of 664, 659, allegedly cast for the petitioners in Abia State (paragraph 34 of the petition).

“Documents showing the published registered voters in Bauchi State, as pleaded in paragraph 41 of the petition.

“Details of the electronically collated 332,618 votes in Bayelsa State (paragraph 42).

“Documents showing how petitioners’ votes were depleted by 173,153, in Benue State (paragraph 44).

“Details of how petitioners’ votes were depleted by 210,109 in Bomo State (paragraph 46 of the petition).”

congress PDP tells Buhari to Submit his WAEC certificate to tribunal, as Keyamo speaks on qualification buhari worried

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to claim by the spokesman for the All Progressives , APC, campaign Council, Festus Keyamo that one does not need a WAEC certificate to become of .

Keyamo said this while appearing on Channels Tv on Sunday night when asked about the eligibility of President Muhammadu Buhari to contest the .

According to him, if you have occupied the public for a reasonable length of time, you do not need a WAEC certificate to become president of Nigeria.

However, reacting, PDP in a statement on Monday by its spokesman Kola Ologbondiyan called on President Muhammadu Buhari to tender his West African Examination Certificate (WAEC) to the presidential election petition’s tribunal.

The main opposition party also called on Nigerians to note that by claiming that an aspirant does not need WAEC certificate, but the ability to speak English, to contest for the office of the President, the Buhari Presidency, through Festus Keyamo, had finally admitted that President Buhari does not have a WAEC certificate as he claimed in his INEC documentation.

The PDP, therefore warmed APC campaign spokesperson, Festus Keyamo, to stop “insulting” the sensibility of Nigerians .

The statement read in part “An attempt to deceive the public using a defective reading and skewed interpretation of a section of the constitution cannot exonerate President Buhari.

“Moreover, Section 295 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) is very clear on issues of interpretations and reference to questions of law.

“The PDP, therefore, maintains that the onus is on President Buhari, as ‘Mr. Integrity’ to tender the certificate he claims to possess before the tribunal instead of this lame diversion from Presidential aides

“It’s completely inexcusable for President Buhari to swear to an affidavit to claim an educational qualification he did not possess.”
