Olusegun Bamgbose is a frontline legal practitioner in . He is also the of the Caleb and Greg Foundation, CAGG.

In this with DAILY POST’s Nwachukwu John Owen, Bamgbose vows to take over power when President Muhammadu concludes his tenure in 2023. He also revealed ways he intends to lift Nigerians out of poverty, accusing the current government of failing to address the issue of poverty, alleging that most Nigerians are suffering.

Excerpts:

What makes you think you stand the chance of emerging Nigeria’s President after President Buhari?

I remain the most qualified Nigerian to succeed Buhari. With all modesty, I sincerely believe that I’ve what it takes to be the next President of Nigeria. Buhari will need a builder and a man with zero tolerance to succeed him. I’m the one to fill that gap. I believe in the TEA principle of good governance, that is, Transparency, Equity & Accountability. I’ve zero tolerance for corruption. I believe Nigeria can be fixed in 24 months.

What are your objectives?

Thanks for this question. You will agree with me that the poverty level in this country is so high that something drastic and urgent should be done to nip it in the bud. It’s against this background that we have come up with the Foundation. We will ensure that poverty is minimized. We will join forces with the government and the stakeholders to achieve this.

Please tell us more on this?

Ok. We are coming up with Strategic Partnership Program, SPP. This is a program aimed at partnering with the government to drastically bring down the rate of poverty in Nigeria. We have concrete plans to cripple poverty in Nigeria. Our approach to tackling poverty and joblessness in Nigeria will be extraordinary and exclusive.

How do you intend to achieve these lofty aims?

Actually, we have on ground some pragmatic plans to actualize our objectives. We have COME, NAMES, LEAP, N- PASS, GAP.

These are beautiful acronyms, can you please decode them and tell us how they will help in battling poverty and unemployment?

Let me start with COME. It means Cash Online Made Easy, COME. This is revolutionary. It’ll be an exclusive online lending platform. This is an attempt by CAGG Foundation to make cash available to the people in time of need. No formal application, no collateral, no guarantors, above all, no interest. Hopefully, by God’s grace, this will commence in 2020. This we believe will assist our youths to meet with their needs without any burden of paying interest.

How then do recover the soft loan?

We have taken that to consideration anyway. We have our plans. Let me quickly add here that civil and public servants are not left out. Even traders and businessmen.

Thank you. Now let’s look at NAMES. National Mass Empowerment Scheme, It’s our hope that in 2020, we shall empower about 500, 000 Nigerians under this scheme. It’ll really be explosive and exceptional. Recently you must have read what a Minister said that about 90m Nigerians are living in poverty. This is really scary. Except we fight poverty like a plague, poverty will continue to plague us as a nation. Something drastic should be done to address this menace. Let’s look at LEAP. Let’s Eradicate Abject Poverty, LEAP. The United Nation has set 2030 to wipe out poverty in the world. This is achievable because the resources are available. Our Foundation will certainly partner with relevant agencies to actualize this noble aim. We have plans to collaborate with United Nation to make poverty a thing of the past on or before 2030. It’s our expectation that not less than 25 million Nigerians will join the community to Eradicate poverty in Nigeria. Moreover, we intend to use this LEAP Community to organize a coup, not against the government but against poverty in Nigeria. It’s our belief that all hands must be on deck to overthrow poverty in Nigeria. In other words, coup against poverty is imminent and inevitable.

How can you assess Buhari’s government in tackling poverty in Nigeria?

Let me tell you this, in any society where hardship and poverty prevail, crime and violence will be prevalent. Let’s tell ourselves the truth, we are not getting it right. No government in the world can successfully fight crimes without first and foremost fight poverty. Our youths are suffering. The government should buckle up. Nigeria is becoming very unsafe. Something should be done to stem this tide. Only recently, gunmen attacked military base and killed about 12 soldiers and wounded some. This certainly is not good news.

What are your parting words for Nigerians?

Together we can defeat poverty. It’s a collective effort. The fight against poverty will only be effective if it’s collective.

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no
    data backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

Amotekun: Akeredolu reveals ‘major’ agreements Southwest governors reached with Osinbajo

Amotekun: Akeredolu reveals ‘major’ agreements Southwest governors reached with Osinbajo 20200124 093655

The Ondo State Governor and Chairman of the Southwest Governors, Rotimi Akeredolu, has disclosed what was agreed upon during the meeting with the Vice , Yemi Osinbajo with regards to Amotekun.

Akeredolu said governors of the region and Osinbajo agreed on a legal framework to be established to backup the region’s security outfit.

Recall that the Southwest governors had met with Osinbajo yesterday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting is coming 24 hours after the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, said Amotekun was not a threat to national unity.

Amotekun, an initiative of Southwest Governors, was first declared illegal last Tuesday by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami

However, Akeredolu while addressing State House correspondents after the meeting, said: “We held a very fruitful discussion, the governors of the South-West were there. The meeting was presided over by the Vice President, the AGF was there and the Inspector General of Police.

“We have rubbed minds and all of us have agreed on the way forward. The most important thing is that we are going to have the legal framework to back this Amotekun. And this legal framework is going to be one in which all of us will look at and we will be sure that it goes without any hindrance.”

When asked if the agreement reached with the Vice President meant that the establishment of the outfit would be put on hold until the legal framework was developed, he said: “No. What I believe about our resolution is that Amotekan is there, you know the Federal Government is starting community policing. In essence really, it is about community. So, we are going to work together to see the community policing and Amotekan work in a way.”

Akeredolu also insisted that there were consultations before the establishment of Amotekun

“There were consultations, don’t say there were no consultations. There were consultations because we held discussions with the IG then and what has developed is what has led to this, not that there were no consultations.

“We just felt that with all these noise outside, it was better for us to sit down. Remember that immediately the noise started, I said that we were going to explore political solutions and all of us are here, my colleague, the deputy governor of Oyo State who is of the PDP, all of us are here. So, we have looked at both political and legal solutions to it and all of us will do it,” he said.
