JUST IN: Fayose breaks silence on Ekiti poll, asks Buhari to bury his head in shame

Published

on

Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to bury his head in shame over the outcome of the governorship election in Ekiti.
Kayode Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC) defeated Kolapo Olusola, Fayose’s preferred candidate in the election.
Olusola ran on the platform of PDP.
Reacting to the election in a series of tweets on Monday afternoon, the governor alleged that the federal government used security agencies to rig the poll.
He expressed optimism that his party would retrieve its “stolen mandate”.
“Buhari should bury his head in shame for using the police, army, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and INEC to snatch the mandate given to Olusola and deliver it to Fayemi whom Ekiti people rejected,” he said in a statement which Idowu Adelusi, his chief press secretary, issued on his behalf.
“I am Peter Ayodele Fayose , I hold with my head high . I can never be suppressed. I don ’ t lose battles and I will not lose this. I will laugh last .
“The president should note what the Bible says which applies to him . ‘He that wears the armour should not boast as he that removes it.’
“It is only Buhari that will pride himself with the security shooting sporadically at polling centres, scaring people to pave the way for the APC thugs to snatch ballot boxes.”
Fayose said what Buhari had won as referendum from Ekiti people , Nigerians, and international community “is shame .”
He added “If APC has truly won, why is it that there is no jubilation in Ekiti ? The victory of Kayode Fayemi is pyrrhic. We will reclaim the stolen mandate in the court by the power of God.”
“The president should bury his head in shame for using the police, army, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and INEC to snatch the mandate given to Olusola and deliver it to Fayemi whom Ekiti people rejected.”

Tinubu to Obasanjo: You have spent your own time… leave Buhari alone

Published

on

 

Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has asked ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo to leave President Muhammadu Buhari alone.

Tinubu said this while addressing party members at a stakeholders meeting in Lagos state on Tuesday.

The APC leader condemned “frequent attacks” on the current administration by the former president.

He said the criticisms of Obasanjo were in bad faith, adding that he (Obasanjo) could not stop Nigerians from reelecting Buhari.

“Our president, President Muhammadu Buhari has done well, he deserves another term, and we will support him to win because he is our man,” he said.

“Forget about Obasanjo’s letter and his frequent attacks on our president, he cannot stop the president because Nigerians would re-elect him.

“Obasanjo has spent his own time; he should leave Buhari alone and face his business because he cannot tell us who to vote for.

“He is part of some of the challenges we are facing in the country today, because he did not lay the right foundation when he was president.”

Tinubu added that the exit of some members of the APC would also not stop the reelection of Buhari, saying the party was unshaken by the defections and was on course to recording victories in the 2019 election.

He said the results of the bye-elections in Kogi, Katsina and Bauchi states, in which the APC was victorious, were a “precursor to the pattern of the general election”.

“I congratulate the winners in the election and their victory is proof that our party is getting more popular by the day,” he said.

“Those who want to defect can defect, that is their problem. APC remains unshaken and these people will know the reality in the elections.”

 Obasanjo in closed-door meeting with another PDP presidential aspirant

The Governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Dakwambo, is currently in a closed door meeting with the former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Mr Dakwambo, a presidential aspirant under the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) arrived his host’s private residence located inside the premises of Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta and shortly entered into the meeting.

The meeting comes less than 24 hours after Senate President Bukola Saraki also met with Mr Obasanjo. None of the officials spoke about the details of their meeting which held few days after Mr Saraki also met with ex-military ruler, Ibrahim Babangida.

Mr Obasanjo also recently played host to another PDP presidential aspirant, Kabiru Turaki, and visited ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.

The meetings are believed to be in preparation for the 2019 elections with Mr Obasanjo pledging to spearhead a coalition to oust incumbent President Muhammadu BUhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mr Obasanjo supported Mr Buhari’s election in 2015 but has since fell out with the president.

See full list of ’57 APC Senators’ as of August 13, 2018

There are currently 54 APC senators, and 49 PDP senators. There are other two; one each from the All Progressives Grand Alliance ( APGA) and the African Democratic Congress (ADC).

However, there are two vacant seats from Katsina, Kogi and Bauchi states, which had been won by APC candidates in the Saturday’s by-elections conducted in the two states, but the winners are yet to be sworn in.

It would also be recalled that one APC senator from Plateau State, Joshua Dariye, was recently sentenced to prison. Although he was said to have appealed the judgment, he has been out of the Senate ever since.

When the three new Senators are eventually sworn in, that would bring total number of APC Senators to 57, but if you discount Dariye, that would be 56.
