The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has condemned Muhammadu ’s Democracy Day speech.

PDP said Buhari showed disregard for the tenets of democracy and lack of “commitments or assurances on fundamental issues of constitutionality, rule of law, separation of power, justice, fairness, free speech and rights of citizens, which are the hallmarks of
democracy.”

In a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the opposition party stressed that Buhari showed no remorse over the alleged manipulations, infractions and

violence that characterized the general elections, under his watch.
The statement reads: “We invite Nigerians to note how President Buhari’s address clearly shows a disregard for the tenets of democracy as he (Mr. President) had
no clear commitments or assurances on fundamental issues of constitutionality, rule of law, separation of power, justice, fairness, free speech and rights of citizens, which are the hallmarks of democracy.

“Mr. President also had no regrets for the manipulations, infractions and violence that characterized the 2019 general elections, under his watch, for which the nation now has an unprecedented 766 petitions,
including the highly manipulated election.

“President Buhari did not express any form of remorse for the barefaced constitutional violations, assault on institutions of democracy, particularly the legislature and the judiciary; human rights violations, assault on the media and the general siege mentality in the polity under
his watch.

“It is sad that on a day like this, Mr. President dwelt on false performance claims and had no soothing word for millions of compatriots that have been subjected to the worst form of economic misery, that they are now resorting to suicide and slavery mission abroad.

“He also had no words of hope for the victims of escalated insurgency, kidnapping, banditry and bloodletting in various parts of our nation.

“How can this administration superintend over a Democracy Day celebration when it has questions of constitutional violations, electoral manipulations, media clampdown, victimization of opposition, emasculation of free speech, brutalization, arbitrary arrests and illegal detention, as already detailed in various reports, including those by the United States Department of State.

“It is disheartening that the same electoral manipulation, violations and injustices for which the icon of June 12 Democracy Day, Chief MKO Abiola died, have brazenly taken center stage under the APC misrule.

“Today, just like on June 12, 1993, our citizens are despondent, particularly over the rigging of the February 23, 2019 Presidential election as their quest for a people-oriented and inherently democratic leadership to move our nation forward was frustrated, consequent upon
which our party and our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, are seeking justice.”

PDP, however, urged Nigerians not to despair but continue in their aspiration for the retrieval of its stolen presidential mandate at the tribunal “so that the nation will have a truly democratic and purposeful leadership for the good of all.”

[object object] BREAKING: Otedola confirms sale of Forte Oil otedola 1024x822 1

Billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, has announced the sale of Forte Oil Plc.

Otedola, who was chairman of the oil firm, had announced plans to sell off his 75 per cent stake in the company to “maximise the opportunities in refining”.

In a message he posted on Instagram on Wednesday, he confirmed that the process is now complete.

According to Otedola, he is now prepared to focus on his investment in the power sector.

“A few years ago, my team and I embarked on an arduous task of transforming a moribund petroleum marketing business, African Petroleum Plc (formerly British Petroleum) into Forte Oil Plc; a leading integrated solutions provider with solid footprints in downstream petroleum marketing, Upstream Services and Power Generation and one in which we built intrinsic value to the benefits of our shareholders.

“In line with my principle of business focus, we have divested from our marketing and upstream businesses and shall from now on focus and consolidate on the gains of our power generation business, Geregu Power Plc. We wish our successors the very best and urge them to build on our legacies which have been established since 1964,” he wrote.
