What We Expect From Buhari In 2020 —Afenifere, ACF, MASSOB

A cross section of socio-cultural groups in Nigeria has given their expectations of the regime of the President, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), for 2020.

Afenifere, Arewa Consultative Forum and the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, in separate interviews with our correspondent, said the performance of the Buhari regime over the last four and a half years had left a lot to be desired.

Among the areas enumerated for improvement by the Federal Government were the rule of law, Federal Character, education, agriculture and health.

Afenifere’s National Publicity Secretary, Yinka Odumakin, stated that the current regime had been characterised by unmerited appointments and disregard for the rule of law, more of which he said could be expected in 2020.

Odumakin said, “If the past four years have been anything to go by, we expect more nepotism in terms of appointments, concentrating every critical appointment in a section of the country. Don’t forget that he (Buhari) just promised some two weeks ago that he could now afford to be reckless.k

Igbo Presidency in 2023 is Non Negotiable

Igbo Group Insists On Rotational Presidency

A group, Igbo Presidency Project Movement , has asked Northerners not to truncate the political arrangement that has engendered seamless rotation of Presidency of the country between the North and South .

It said the system was one of the factors that had sustained the country ’ s democracy .

The group’ s National Coordinator , Arinzechukwu Igboeli, stated this at a press conference in Awka, Anambra State on Sunday .

His reaction followed a statement credited to the leader of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, Yerima Shettima , that the North would again produce the President of the country in 2023 .

Igboeli described the statement as insulting to the sensibilities of the 365 ethnic groups in the federation .

He said, “ Nations are not held together by force but by a sense of justice , fairness and equity .

“ Thus , it is important for young Nigerians like us who believe in the unity of Nigeria based on fairness and equity to immediately react to statements made by the coordinator of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, Yerima Shettima , which clearly called for power to remain in the North after the incumbent President , Major General Muhammadu Buhari( retd .) , would have exhausted his eight -year tenure in 2023 .

“ Such a statement smacks largely of ignorance or contempt of the attempt by those who fought to restore our democracy and preserve the fragile unity of Nigeria by reaching the conventional notion of zoning which encouraged the rotation of the Presidency between the North and South .

“ This trend has been followed almost religiously with the exception of the Goodluck Jonathan era which was brought upon us by the demise of President Umaru Yar’ Adua in office but was immediately corrected in 2015 when these progressive forces brought change .

“ Shettima not only made the call for the Presidency to remain in the North but also in a hubris-like manner dismissed the morally backed agitation of Ndigbo to produce one of its own for the office in 2023 .”

With Revocation Of My Father’s Land, ‘Abdulrazaq Has Crossed The Line’, Says Saraki

Forrmer Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has said Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, has crossed the line of decency with his recent efforts to erase the legacies of his late father, Dr. Abubakar Olusola Saraki.

Saraki, in a statement he personally signed and made available to THISDAY, stated that the war of attrition waged against the legacy of his father and everything that belongs to the late politician simply portrayed the governor as a man who lacks the sense of history and set out only to fight the Saraki family but not to serve the interest of Kwarans.

He said, “Yesterday night, the Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq finally showed his true colour when he announced his decision to revoke the ownership of a property rightfully held by my late father, Dr. Olusola Abubakar Saraki on Plots 1, 3 and 5 Ilofa Road, GRA, Ilorin popularly known as Ile Arugbo, (Old People’s home) which since the Second Republic, has always been used to host the weekly gathering of a multitude of aged people in the society who are provided food, money and health services, as part of the social welfare programme sponsored by the late politician. The tradition has since been maintained.

“Before now, this same Governor had invited all the members of the State House of Assembly and directed them to commence the process of amending the law to change the name of the State University which the last administration renamed after my late father, Dr. Abubakar Olusola Saraki. He then followed up on this act of vengeance by initiating a bill to rename the University and expunge the name of the late Dr. Abubakar Olusola Saraki. Now, he has decided to also revoke the titles of the landed property which belongs to the late politician. May be, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq thinks his will be the last administration in Kwara State but definitely, this is self delusion”.

The former senate president said that the property had been rightfully allocated to his late father under the name of one of his companies, Asa Investment Limited, since the 1980s and contrary to the claim of the Governor, the land was properly allocated and a Right of Occupancy title issued on it.

He explained that It should be noted that the excuse given by Abdulrazaq in his revocation order holds no water since it was clear that this was the height of his vengeance against him and his late father, Dr. Olusola Saraki.

“Till today, many Kwarans have been wondering what problem the Governor has with the late Oloye Abubakar Olusola Saraki or what the late politician did to offend him. It is surprising that of all vacant plots of land in strategic places across Ilorin township, the one that Abdulrahman found useful for his vengeful plan is the one owned by late Dr. Saraki. It is beyond comprehension why a Governor would set as his main agenda the objective of undermining and waging a war of attrition against a man who is no longer around”.

The former senate president said that “This action is clearly a manifestation of vengeance and it shows that this Governor is not out to serve any public purpose or pursue any development agenda. In his narrow-mindedness, he believes his victory at the polls is an empowerment, entitlement and enablement to settle scores, provoke and pursue inter-family rivalry. Those who voted for the party in power in Kwara State and Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq obviously did not vote for the man to enable him wage war against Dr. Olusola Saraki and his legacies. They expected development and fulfillment of promises”.

He said if the governor believes people were not taking stock of his misguided and deceptive actions and that because he is in power, he could do whatever he likes, he must be a joke. stating also, that “this war against the Sarakis will not successfully veil his unpreparedness for governance and divert people’s attention from the glaring lack of visionary, clear-cut plan to deliver on his empty promises to the people. He definitely cannot get away with all the atrocities he has been committing”.

Saraki who was governor of Kwara state for eight years, said, “Since the outcome of the elections in March, despite the fact that there are clear grounds to challenge the results in court, I have decided to demonstrate maturity, statemanship and sportsmanship. I have chosen not to make comment on the policies, programmes and actions of the administration in Kwara State or that of its head. Also, I deliberately stayed away from the State to avoid creating any distraction for the administration. My decision is borne out of a genuine restraint to enable the administration settle down and fulfill its numerous promises to the people of our state.

“However, seven months down the line, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has shown that its cardinal Programme is to wage war against my late father and I. He has demonstrated that his only competence and astuteness is in the area of viciously assailing the late Oloye Saraki and I. Definitely, he is a man with no sense of history. Enough is enough. Now, he has crossed the line”.

According to the former senate president, “Perhaps, I should let it be known that if Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq thinks he is taking all these actions to get at me, he is only deceiving himself. There is no basis for competition between us. Our paths cannot cross because the status that he is struggling to attain, Almighty Allah has given it to me many years before now. I became Governor 16 years before him and served out my constitutional limit of eight years. Within the period, I was Chairman of Nigerian Governors Forum. I have moved on to serve in the federal legislature and by the grace of God, I headed the National Assembly as the number three man in the country. No matter, how well he tried to rewrite history, it is on record that I left Kwara State a lot better than I met it. In fact, the University that he is struggling to rename was established by my administration as just one out of many legacies we left behind. This Governor needs a lot more efforts, years, Intelligence and resources to attain the level Allah has taken me, not to talk of my late father, Dr. Olusola Abubakar Saraki, the Senate Leader in the Second Republic. As Governor, I used the position to serve the people and during the period I did not dishonour his own father or anybody’s father for that matter”.

He explained that “Just as I did after the election, my advise to Gov. Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq that he should devote his time and energy to providing good governance and genuine development of the state.

“It is well known to the Governor that I fear nobody, except Almighty Allah, the ultimate owner of all powers. With all his subterranean and open moves against my family, person and property, I remain unmoved. However, his open antagonism against my late father and his legacies is unwarranted and will not be tolerated. He has definitely gone beyond bounds as he cannot be allowed to ride roughshod on the deceased. In this war against my late father, he will not win.

“This Governor has shown that he is not a man who wants peace, co-operation and development. He believes that a constant attack on my family and I is all that he needs to win the hearts of Kwara people. The need to provide good governance is secondary to him.

“However, it should be made clear to Abdulrazaq and his administration that their attack on my late father cannot erase the legacies of Oloye. No evil design, negative plot or propaganda can successfully rewrite the history of Kwara State. This plot against my late father will not stand. And I will like to make it clear that we will contest this petty, malicious, dubious and bias action of a parochial, vicious and vindictive administration through all legal means. We are sure this is not an action taken in public interest. Rather, it is done in pursuit of a selfish and devious objective”, Saraki stated.

Not even party differences matter to the people and government of Anambra State any more. For instance, when former Vice President Alex Ekwueme was buried in January, 2018, the weeklong funeral rites were led by Governor Willie Obiano. This was in spite of the fact that while Governor Obiano belongs to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Dr Ekwueme was a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). In fact, Dr Ekwueme’s first child, Mrs Chidi Onyemelukwe, was the PDP deputy governorship candidate in the November 17, 2017, gubernatorial election which Chief Obiano won overwhelmingly in each of the 21 local government areas in the state. Though the election was held only two days to Dr Ekwueme’s passage, Governor Obiano displayed no bitterness towards the former vice

By Ogbuefi Comr Harris Chuma

The government of Anambra state led by His Excellency, Chief Dr. Willie Obiano has done well with the sustained empowerment of the law enforcement agencies in the state so that they will have the means to wage relentless war against criminals in the state.

My sincere advise to the  opposition elements in the state is that they should restrain from playing dirty politics with issues that affect our lives.

Applaud your media attacks on the personality of the governor, reigning insults on his wife, abusing his nativity, and prying into his domestic life? No, it's not how best to play
