2023: ‘One Day Governors’ Urge Nigerians To Vote For Asiwaju Tinubu As Next Nigerian President Under APC

Published

on

With the 2023 General Elections around the corner, Nigerians have been urged to vote for the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC),
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Addressing journalists at a press conference via zoom on Sunday December 4, 2022, some past Lagos State “One Day Governors” stated that “there is no better candidate than our father, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former Governor of Lagos State as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

Five of the past “One Day Governors” who spoke at the conference, and who are successful in their various endeavours, attributed their successes to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and have promised to mobilise the youths to go out enmasse and cast their votes for the former governor of Lagos State.

They urged fellow youths “to use our example and experience to liberate themselves from the campaign of calumny of those who had similar opportunity to show love, to give care and to make effort to give youths in their states self-confidence and a secured future, but failed woefully to do so.

“A Tinubu presidency will give youths real sense of belonging and integrated participation.”

They emphasised that there is no doubt that Nigerians are preparing to set up a new democratic dispensation in February 2023, adding that elections are held every four years in line with the Nigerian Constitution to elect new representatives for the executive and legislative arms of government.

“This conforms with the principle of popular sovereignty which says the citizens must determine those to represent them.

“For power to come from the people and not, as we have had in our tragic military period, the barrel of the gun, the exercise of franchise by voting has been established as the global standard.

“We commend the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC for putting in place policies and processes which have enabled the youths to register to vote.
For the first time since the return of democracy in 1999, INEC has released figures to show that majority of voters in the new register are voters,” they said.

According to them, as expected, not less than 18 parties have put forward candidates for the offices at House of Assembly, Governorship, House of Representatives, Senate and the Presidency.

“Campaigns have also started in earnest as candidates sell their track records and manifesto of their vision to the Nigerian people.

“A boy or girl is the product of his or her experience. We are Nigerian youths. Our experience has made it an obligation to come forward at this time to address this press conference.

“The condition and aspiration of students in Lagos State primary and secondary schools went through a revolution in 2001 when, for the first time, mentoring youths and nurturing them to imbibe values of achievement took a radical dimension with the introduction of the Spelling Bee competition.

“It was the pet project of Senator Mrs Oluremi Tinubu. Her husband, our father, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu was the governor.

“Every child who has demonstrated some proficiency in English Language was invited by school managers to compete so that the school could present it’s best candidate in the inter-school competition,” they said.

They stated that the competition moved from local government education districts to state districts to the finals, adding that the best candidate to spell won.

“What values did we learn?
First, that your achievement in life is ultimately determined by your effort, not by the wealth or poverty of your parents.

“Second, that the acquisition of knowledge and skills is critical to your success.

“Third, that only a leadership that cares for the youths and facilitates their development is serious about sincerely ensuring that the youths will be the leaders if tomorrow.

“Fourth, that performance is not determined by your tribe or religion or class. It is determined by how you use your talents and skills.

“Finally, we were taught to see ourselves as products of the investment of public resources and such must imbibe patriotism, enterprise and be our brothers and sisters’ keepers,” they said.

It was emphasised that “without any fear of contradiction, I wish to say, each and everyone of us who emerged One Day Governors and our fellow winners who were deputy governors, speakers and commissioners have gone into the world and we are excelling.

“We wish to thank our father, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who, despite the fact that we were just teenagers, showed the highest example of love and humility for vacating his office for us to perform our role as One Day Governors.

“It also showed the huge respect he has for the womenfolk and our mother, Senator Oluremi Tinubu in particular, for not saying women could only function in the kitchen and not rejecting an idea that has transformed our lives
The above testimony leads us to the logical conclusion.

Wike Dares Ayu,Suspend Me And See The Repercussions

Published

on

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has dared the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Iyorchia Ayu to suspend the G-5 governors and see if the party would be able to withstand the storm that will follow.

Speaking yesterday, at the campaign flag-off rally of the State PDP Campaign Council in Bori, Khana Local Government Area of the State, Governor Wike boasted that the G-5 Governors are above the threat of suspension.

“We are above that level that you think you can threaten anybody; intimidate anybody with whatever illegal decision you have taken.”

“So, we are waiting for you to announce my own and any other of my friend. Like I have said, when a man says you will not sleep, he too, will he sleep. Will Ayu sleep? Will those his cohorts sleep? So don’t worry, we have the capacity to pay back. We have the capacity to tell you that enough is enough.”

He warned that the resort to despotism by the PDP National Working Committee would not do the party any good in the forthcoming general elections.

Governor Wike said that the reason why the dissolution of the Ekiti State working committee would be challenged in court was that there were still members of the PDP who believed in the rule of law and that the party should respect its constitution.

DON’T ALLOW PDP TO RULE NIGERIA —TINUBU

Published

on

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, on Saturday urged the people of Jigawa State to not give the Peoples Democratic Party an opportunity to return to power. This is even as he charged them to keep faith with the All Progressives Congress-led government for service delivery.

The former Lagos State governor stated this when he addressed a mammoth crowd of supporters at the presidential campaign rally held at the  Mallam Aminu Kano Triangle, Dutse, the Jigawa State capital.

He said having voted out the “jackals and hyenas” in the PDP administration in 2015, it would be disastrous to give them another opportunity back to power.

He said: “You did the courageous job of chasing away the locusts eight years ago, do not trust their deceptive promises. Do not let them back into power. Like locusts, they will devour everything in their path!

“Instead, vote for the people that have a track record of delivering prosperity to the people. We did it in Lagos and Borno, and with your help, we will do it again for Nigeria. Vote for the people with the vision, capacity, competence, and integrity to do what is right.

“Vote for responsive and responsible leadership. Vote for us. Vote for the APC on February 25 and March 11.”

He said his administration would build on the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari and bring the country to flourish.

Unveiling his plans, the frontline presidential candidate promised to revamp the agricultural sector, while also giving great attention to developing infrastructure across the country.

According to him: “Most importantly of all, we will secure our nation and defeat the menace posed by evil criminals, kidnappers, bandits, and terrorists. We will sweep them away. Broom!

“We will do so by recruiting and deploying more security personnel across the various agencies, improving their equipment and training, and deploying top-shelf technology to improve ground and aerial surveillance in key and dangerous areas.”

Overwhelmed by the tumultuous crowd, Tinubu thanked them every turn, saying ‘Nagode, Nagode, thank you, thank you.”

Jigawa Governor Badaru Abubakar expressed appreciation to the people of the State for turning out in large numbers to receive the presidential candidate and other party leaders.

He described Tinubu as his dear father who would soon be the “father of the nation.

“You know me, I know you. You know what did before and what we are doing at present. You know right from President Buhari and me your governor, we are doing well for you. Baba Asíwájú will take over from there and double our party’s delivery for you”

Muslim-Muslim Ticket: Court Dismisses Lawyer’s Suit Seeking To Disqualify Tinubu

Published

on

Justice Ahmed Ramat Mohammed of the Federal High Court Abuja, has dismissed a suit seeking disqualification of the All Progressives Congress and Bola Tinubu over the nomination of Muslim-muslim candidacy, for the 2023 presidential election.

The suit instituted by an Abuja based legal practitioner, Mister Osigwe Momoh was thrown out by the Judge on ground of lack of locus standi by the plaintiff.

Justice Mohammed held that the lawyer, not being a member of the APC and having not participated in the process that produced Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shetima cannot query them on the nominations.

The legal practitioner had in the suit prayed the Court for an order nullifying the candidature of APC and Tinubu from participating in the presidential election on the ground that the nomination of Muslim-muslim candidacy is unconstitutional and against the spirit and letters of sections 14, 15 and 224 of the 1999 Constitution.

He asked the court for an order of perpetual injunction to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from publishing the name of APC and its presidential candidate for the purpose of the 2023 election.

However in his judgment, Justice Mohammed disagreed with the plaintiff on legal right to institute the case and subsequently dismissed it in its entirety.
