Ex-Senate President warns Tinubu against running for President in 2023

ex-senate president warns tinubu against running for president in 2023 Ex-Senate President warns Tinubu against running for President in 2023 tinubu 1024x555

Former Senate President, Dr Iyorchia Ayu has warned the national leader of the All Progressives , APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, against running for president in 2023.

According to him, Tinubu’s quest to takeover power from President Muhammadu Buhari will erode the political gains he made so far.

He urged the APC national leader to rather support vice president Yemi Osinbajo to succeed President Buhari.

Aye, who also served in three different portfolios as minister in the cabinet of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, also expressed worry that Tinubu has aligned himself with the ‘most backward forces’ in Nigeria’s political history.

He said the political group which he has aligned himself with, will soon turn against him.

“Bola Tinubu is my brother, an excellent man, politically clever and hardworking. He has been very successful in his private life.

“But I think like I said in one of my earlier interviews, he has aligned himself with the most backward forces in Nigeria’s political history.

“Rather than liberal and progressive wing of the north, this right wing group he is working with will soon turn against him and destroy him.

“His (Tinubu’s) ambition which is becoming blind will contribute to that self-destruction. He will lose most of what he has gained as a political leader.

“If he has my opinion, I will advise him to continue to play the role of a political leader, but not aspiring to be a government leader.

“He should promote and support the candidature of Yemi Osinbajo, who is obviously an intelligent and competent person,” the ex- Senate President told Nigerian Tribune.

Osun Guber!!! Aregbesola talks about Adeleke’s victory over Oyetola

Osun Guber!!! Aregbesola talks about Adeleke’s victory over Oyetola Governor Rauf Aregbesola

Former Osun State , Rauf Aregbesola says the judgment of the Petition Tribunal last Friday, which nullified the of Gboyega Oyetola will not stand.

The tribunal had declared Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as winner.

Aregbesola, in a statement Wednesday night by his Media Adviser, Mr. Sola Fasure, said the report was a rude shock.

He said the majority judgment, as delivered by their Lordship, did not support the cause of electoral justice and might constitute the death knell for properly conducted elections.

Aregbesola said the people rejected the majority judgment and believe that it would not stand scrutiny at the appellate court.

The statement noted that the majority judgment, which held that the rerun election conducted in seven polling units on the September 27, 2018, was illegal, null and void, was equally shocking and amounts to a travesty of justice.

He said the government would appeal the judgment, adding that the verdict would be upturned.

The former governor wondered why elections in 17 polling units would be annulled when there was no evidence of any act known to render them null and void in an election petition, such as over-voting, non-accreditation, ballot box stuffing among others.

Aregbesola contended that concern for substantive justice should have dictated that since the results from the 17 units were duly signed and adjudged by to be authentic, there should not have been any controversy over there validity.

He lamented that the tribunal has effectively disenfranchised the legitimate voters in the 17 polling units and rendered the election undemocratic.

The statement said: “In nullifying the elections in the 17 polling units, the majority judgment predicated it on what is regarded as ‘substantial non-compliance’ with the provisions of the Electoral Act 2010. The said non-compliance, according to the judgment, borders on the failure of INEC’s appointed presiding officers to record accreditation and ballot accounting on the result forms in the 17 polling units.

“There was no evidence of any act known to render election null and void in an election petition such as over voting, non-accreditation, ballot box stuffing etc.

“This much was highlighted in the dissenting judgment of the Chairman of the Tribunal in disagreeing with the majority decision.

“It must be noted that APC and its candidate were not accused of any electoral malfeasance in the 17 polling units. Rather, INEC, a common agent of PDP and APC (and indeed, all the political parties), which neither of the parties has control over was merely accused of not complying with its manual for the election, when the presiding officers appointed for the election failed to make the entries.

“Therefore, the most relevant question one would pose here is: should the tribunal allow APC to suffer as a result of the mistakes or omissions occasioned by the INEC staff? Certainly, no!”

“Equally shocking are the reasons advanced by the two justices. They advanced the proposition that elections in the seven polling units were cancelled by the state collation officer. This was not the case. There were no elections in the seven polling units, and if there was any, the onus was on the petitioners. This onus was not discharged in anyway as no results was tendered.

“The state collation officer in compliance with the margin of lead principle rightly reasoned that the outcomes of the elections could not be determined without conducting polls in the affected elections. Hence the commission’s decision to conduct supplementary elections in line with these principles.”
