The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has backed the call by the Minoriry Leader, Eyinnaya Abaribe, asking Muhammadu to resign.

Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP National Publicity Secretary, in a statement on Wednesday, said it supported the call because Buhari had displayed a disheartening dereliction of duty.

PDP recalled comments by Buhari expressing surprise at the heightened insecurity across the country as defeatist, demoralizing and traumatizing.

The opposition stated that the President directly admitted that he was overwhelmed and lacked the required capacity to articulate and implement any solutions to the escalated insurgency, banditry, kidnapping, bloodletting and increased wave of violence under his administration.

“Our party holds that such a statement from a Commander-in-Chief, who promised to lead from the front, is distressing as it further exposes an abdication of duty and shows that Mr. President is not even abreast of his major task in governance which is the security of lives and property.

“The PDP is particularly worried over this apparent display of leadership failure as Mr. President ought to be receiving a daily brief from his service Chiefs on the actual situation on ground.

“His comment therefore speaks volumes on the manner with which the security of our nation is being handled at the highest levels despite the huge resources reportedly committed to security issues by the Buhari administration.

“The PDP notes that such development has further eroded the confidence Nigerians repose on the Buhari Presidency for solutions, especially given his failures to rejig his security high command in the face of failures and demands by well-meaning Nigerians”, the statement said.

Kwara by-election: Tribunal sacks APC lawmaker, declares PDP winner

Published

By

The Kwara State House of Assembly Rerun Election Petition Tribunal , on Monday , nullified the victory of Adam Rufai of the All Progressives Congress in the by -election for Patigi Constituency .
The tribunal subsequently declared Salihu Mohammed Gada of the Peoples Democratic Party winner of the by -election held on March 14 , 2020 .
However, the Kwara State chapter of APC rejected the judgment of the tribunal which declared the candidate of PDP the winner of the recent Patigi by -election .
The seat became vacant when Rufai ’s brother , Saidu Ahmed , died in December 2019 after a brief illness .
It explained that the judgment was based on the difference between ‘ Adam ’ and ‘Adama ’ on the certificate of the candidate of the APC .
Kwara APC made the complaint in a press statement by its Publicity Secretary , Folaranmi Aro , on Monday .
The statement was titled , ‘ APC rejects , to appeal Tribunal ’ s judgment on Patigi … Says judgment a judicial subversion of people ’s mandate’.
Aro complained that PDP never called any witness from the examination body to substantiate its claim that APC candidate was not the owner of the certificate he tendered for his election .Part of the statement read, “ The tribunal did not deny that we won the election overwhelmingly . It instead hid under a feeble excuse that the names of our candidate on the two certificates he presented to the electoral body are slightly different from each other to award our mandate to the opposition .
“ It is a sad day for democracy as the judgment is a slap on thousands of the electorate who stood in the sun to make their choices .
“ This judgment is a violent attack on the position of the Supreme Court in many established cases where an alphabet was either omitted or added to a candidate ’ s name. We are definitely going to appeal the judgment because it signals danger for our democracy and amounted to stealing the mandate of the people . The judgment is a judicial subversion of the mandate of the people . ”
Meanwhile, a former , Bukola Saraki , has congratulated Yahaya over the judgment .
The former Kwara State governor tweeted , “ A big congrats to the candidate of our party @OfficialPDPNig for the State Assembly by -election held in Patigi , Kwara State on 14 th March, 2020 . Hon . Salihu Muhammad Yahaya has just been declared the winner by a tribunal. I also congratulate all our stakeholders for their steadfastness .

It’s time to imbibe politics without bitterness in Oyo ― Makinde tells Adelabu

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has congratulated a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of (CBN), Mr Adebayo Adelabu, on the occasion of his 50th birthday anniversary.
Makinde, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Taiwo Adisa, made available to newsmen, expressed gratitude to God for granting Adelabu, his opponent in the 2019 election, the grace to witness the golden jubilee of his birth.
He noted that achieving such a landmark age can only be a privilege from God.
The governor admonished the businessman, who flew the governorship flag of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 election, to see the new age as a great responsibility and a challenge to put in more efforts into serving humanity and making a meaningful impact on the society.
He further admonished him to imbibe politics without bitterness by freely contributing his quota to the development of the state without any hint of political consideration.
According to Makinde, anyone who reaches the 50th birthday landmark is on his way to becoming an elder statesman and, as such, bears more responsibilities on his shoulders.
He said: “I celebrate my brother, Oloye Adebayo Adelabu, the governorship candidate of the APC in the March 9, 2019, governorship election, in our dear state, on the occasion of his 50th birthday.

“Anyone who lives to celebrate the golden jubilee must see it as a great privilege from God and one should be grateful. It is on this note that I give gratitude to God on behalf of Chief Adelabu.
“Also, a 50th birthday is always celebrated with fanfare, because it is considered a landmark; it is the invitation to becoming a statesman and it confers on one a great respect as well as responsibility.
“I encourage Chief Adelabu to note that this is the time for politicians across all divides in the state to eschew politics of bitterness by freely contributing their quota positively to the developmental efforts of the incumbent administration, since the saying is always right: government comes and government goes but the people always remain.
“I will admonish my brother to, in the spirit of this new age, freely discharge his responsibility to the people by committing himself more to serving humanity and making meaningful impact on the society.
“It is my expectation that as he clocks 50 and with the responsibilities that come with it, Chief Adelabu will attune his mind to collaborating with the Oyo State Government to return the State to the Pacesetter status it occupied especially in the First and Second Republics.
“As he celebrates his golden jubilee, I pray to God to continue to grant him good health.
“I wish him a very Happy birthday and many happy returns.”
