Your Tenure Expires On May 29, 2023′ – PDP To Buhari

The Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) on Friday has re­minded President Muhammadu Buhari that his tenure will expire on May 29, 2023.

Welcoming President Buhari back from his med­ical tourism in the United Kingdom, the party, which rejected his declaration that Nigerians should expect ‘continuity,’ asserted that the statement by the All Pro­gressives Congress (APC), that President Buhari has been “re-energised” after his medical treatment, is a confirmation that Mr. Presi­dent had been incapable and lethargic, leading to the inef­ficiency, disorganisation and general misrule that has be­deviled his administration.

PDP, in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondi­yan said, “while Nigerians are at a loss on the import of President Buhari’s decla­ration upon his return that what they should expect is ‘continuity,’ our party wish­es to remind Mr. President that he was elected for a last term of four years which will end on May 29, 2023.”

The PDP holds that what­ever purpose his frame of mind on “continuity” was made to serve, it must not detach from the finality of his leaving office on May 29, 2023.

“This is especially as the comment by the APC had al­ready confirmed that our na­tion has indeed been on au­to-pilot leading to shambolic state of affairs in the nation, escalation of violence and insecurity, wrecking of our national economy, policy in­consistency, entrenchment of corruption and impuni­ty, with no hope in sight,” the party said.

The PDP said that while it recognises the humanity of all, it advises that those at the helm of affairs must be honest enough not to take up assignments that are be­yond their capacity.

“Now that Mr. President is ‘re-energised,’ his handlers have no further excuses on his failure to lead from the front as he promised, in the fight against terrorists and insurgents, whose activities escalated under his watch.

“Our party therefore expects the ‘re-energised’ President Buhari as the Commander-In-Chief to immediately proceed to Zamfara, Borno, Kaduna, Adamawa and other states where terrorists have prac­tically taken over commu­nities on account of the fail­ures of his administration.

“Mr. President should also immediately address the nation on how he in­tends to pay back the huge foreign loans his adminis­tration had collected in the last six years, for which the future of our nation has been mortgaged.

“The ‘re-energised’ Pres­ident is also expected to forcefully commence the recovery of over N15 tril­lion reportedly stolen by APC leaders from govern­ment agencies including the NNPC, NEMA, EFCC, NDDC among others.

“Our party insists that Mr. President must hence­forth take responsibility and end his excuse of not always being aware of is­sues in our country,” the PDP said.

PDP’s Call To Restructure Nigeria Waste Of Time – APC

Published

The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum meeting held in Ibadan, was a waste of time, with no substance.

Recall that PDP Governors had called on President Muhammadu Buhari to restructure Nigeria and convene an emergency meeting on insecurity.

They also advised Buhari to immediately send an Executive Bill to the National Assembly to amend the constitution to devolve more powers to states.

This, they said, would help states work out modalities for proper policing and also help to improve general security architecture.

But reacting, Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), in a statement said it was unfortunate that the PDP governors chose to engage in misplaced name calling and abuses.

According to him, the PDP also failed to seize a golden opportunity provided by the meeting to offer meaningful and patriotic contributions to the state of the nation.

He said it was disappointing that the supposed PDP governors’ consultative meeting turned out to be “a political jamboree and its outcome a waste of time, with no substance”.

He stressed that the efforts and records of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government on revamping the economy and devolution of powers was visible and unmatched.

He added that the administration’s efforts at upgrading the country’s security architecture, governance and electoral reforms, addressing perennial farmers and herders clashes,and public sector reforms were also visible.

Akpanudoedehe recalled that President Buhari on May 20, 2020, signed an executive order on the implementation of financial autonomy of state legislature and Judiciary, which was rejected by the PDP governors.

He assured Nigerians that the Buhari-led government would continue to identify and partner with patriotic and well meaning individuals and interests in its determined efforts to make the country better while addressing its challenges.

Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has said he has no connection with a certain online group mobilising support for him ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

Mr Osinbajo, who made this known in a statement issued on Monday through his spokesperson, Laolu Akande, has asked members of the public to disregard the group.

“The attention of the Office of the Vice President has been drawn to a website: supportosinbajo. ng that is calling on Nigerians to join a volunteer group mobilising support for Osinbajo ahead of the 2023 presidential election.”

“Details of this website and the solicitation of the group are currently trending on WhatsApp with a suggestion that Osinbajo has “quietly” declared interest in the 2023 election.”

“The Office of the Vice President is not in any way connected to this website or the group behind it and considers such an enterprise an unnecessary distraction.”

“Osinbajo has not declared any interest whatsoever in the 2023 election; but he is rather focused on working in his capacity as vice president in the current administration to address all the compelling issues in the country and concerns of Nigerians, including finding effective and lasting solutions to the security challenges.”

“Therefore, we ask that people desist from such unhelpful permutations while we all deal together with the challenges confronting us as Nigerians, and resolve them for the benefit of our people, peace, and prosperity in the land,” he stated.

Osinbajo was picked as the running mate of President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2015 and 2019 presidential elections.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has denied releasing timetable for its Congresses and National Convention.

National Secretary APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee, CECPC, John Akpanudoedehe, disclosed this in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

“Our attention has been drawn to obviously coordinated and syndicated misinformation being circulated in some sections of the media on purported plans and timetable for Congresses and National Convention of the APC.

“This is the handiwork of political jobbers parading themselves as media sources.

“The media, party members and indeed the general public should be wary and completely disregard the misinformation, antics and schemes of these fifth columnists,’’ Mr Akpanudoedehe said.

He said the APC had never lied about its activities and had no reason to lie.

Mr Akpanudoedehe said that the consultative leadership style instituted by Governor Mai Mala Buni led CECPC had institutionalised the APC as a party of processes and internal democracy.

He said the committee was focused on delivering its mandate to recover, rebuild and reposition the APC ahead of 2023 poll.

Mr Akpanudoedehe said the committee was also focused on achieving peace and ensuring true reconciliation within the party to give a sense of belonging to all members.

The APC National Executive Committee, NEC, at its meeting Dec. 8, 2020 meeting gave the Buni-led CECPC until June 30 to conduct congresses and the National Convention.

The CECPC which was constituted in June 2020, following the dissolution of the Adams Oshiomhole-led Nation Working Committee, NWC, was initially given six months to reconcile various factions of the party.

The committee was also to ensure that aggrieved members of the party in court withdrew all litigations as well as conduct a National Convention for the emergence of a new NWC.
