Won’t Return To Aso Rock If I Lose On Saturday – Buhari / Aisha Buhari Speaks On Arrest Of Her ADC, Sani Baban-Inna Over N2.5Billion Fraud / Aso Rock Will Be Shutdown If Obasanjo Is Touched - ADC (2) (3) (4)
|We Will Shutdown Aso Rock If Obasanjo Is Touched - ADC by Penalty82(m): 2:36pm On Jun 09, 2018|
The African Democratic Congress , which has been adopted by Obasanjo , has warned the Federal Government that it will shut down the Presidential Villa if Obasanjo is harmed.
The Chairman of the ADC, Chief Okey Nwosu, said this during a telephone interview with our correspondent on Friday.
Nwosu said having failed to deliver on its campaign promises , the Buhari - led government had resorted to hounding opposition members into submission.
He said when Obasanjo was supporting Buhari during the run- up to the 2015 general elections; he was described as an advocate of change by Buhari and his supporters, but the same man was now being treated as a criminal because he was speaking against the government.
The ADC chairman said, “ What we are witnessing is the desperation of a failed government. When you have mediocre persons that are not focused on handling state power , they often go to dictatorial levels to try to achieve their aim but this time, the people of Nigeria and God are on our side and we will do what our country needs.
“ President Obasanjo cannot be touched. When in 2014 and 2015, he was in the vanguard of trying to effect change because of the situation then, they were applauding him as the champion of a new Nigeria .
“ Now that things have gone wrong in the area of security and economy and he is speaking out, they are now chasing the champion of new Nigeria . We will mobilise the whole of Nigeria to take over Aso Rock Villa if the government steps out of line.”
But two civil society organisations, Socio- Economic Rights and Accountability Project and the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights, said Obasanjo should be ready to face trial if there was any evidence of financial mismanagement traced to his administration .
The SERAP Director , Adetokunbo Mumuni, said the former President ’s alarm of a witch- hunt by President Buhari was unnecessary as the anti -graft agencies must carry out their statutory responsibilities .
Mumuni said, “ The truth of the matter is that Buhari should not be the one to set the EFCC against anybody; the anti -graft agency should do its job , investigate allegations of crime against anybody and begin prosecution. That Obasanjo is crying foul will not stop the agencies from going after him , if indeed there are admissible evidences against him .
“ I don ’t think we should listen to Obasanjo . Rather , we should let the EFCC do what is legally appropriate and prosecute anyone who is supposed to be prosecuted . If Obasanjo has a case to answer , he should be ready to have his day in court under the due process.”
Also the CDHR President , Malachy Ugwummadu , said, “ Obasanjo should not play to the gallery. For me, it will be a huge positive development if this government can muster enough courage to take on Obasanjo .
“ If the government has credible information or evidence to take on Obasanjo , it will clearly show that all the people in the league of former presidents can be taken up .”

THE MOVE OF A DESPERATE PRESIDENT
Umar Ardo, Ph.D
The desperation of President Buhari to retain power at all costs has again manifested itself in his illegal act of both changing the National Democracy Day and the investiture of National Honours of GCFR posthumously to late MKO Abiola and GCON to Amb. Babagana Kingibe. Having realized that he has lost public support across the country as a result of his dismal performance in office, and poor handling of issues affecting his Political Party, the NASS, the Judiciary and key stakeholders of the country, particularly the Senate President, the Speaker, Presidents Obasanjo and Babangida, the president ill-advisedly came up with the so-called idea of making June 12 as Nigeria's �� Democracy Day and giving National Honours to Abiola and Kingibe.
There're two issues wrong with this move - i.e. legal and moral. Legally, the president has no powers to confer National Honours on anyone without the deliberation and advice of the National Council of States. The Third Schedule of the Constitution of Nigeria (as amended) at Section 6(a)iii confers on the NCS the powers to advise the president on the award of national honours. The fact is that the NCS didn't meet to deliberate and advise on this so-called investiture.
Secondly, the National Public Holidays Act has listed 29 May as a National Holiday being the country's Democracy Day. This means that the president can only change the Democracy Day if the Act is duly amended. And to the best of my knowledge this Act has not been amended. Therefore the president's pronouncement is unlawful and of no moment. The only thing is that his action has but further affirmed the president as a no-respecter of due process of law and constitutionalism.
On the moral side, the president cannot honour Babagana Kingibe on the basis of June 12 because Kingibe had abandoned Chief Abiola and the June 12 mandate when he joined his kinsman, General Abacha, and took a ministerial appointment in that regime. It's morally repugnant to now honour him for such an unsalutary act.
Besides, June 12 had never featured in Buhari's politics. He worked with Abacha who incarcerated Abiola and denied the actualization of the mandate and he never raised the issue of June 12. In his electioneering campaigns in 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015, June 12 was never in Buhari's political lexicon. For 3yrs as president he never uttered the phrase June 12. Even last week when he addressed the nation on May 29, June 12 was not mentioned. So how come all of a sudden, like a bolt out of the blue, June 12 became the new political darling of the president? There're three answers to it that I can harzard:-
1. President Buhari has realized that he has lost the support of the Nigerian people, particularly in the Southwest, and so he was tricked into making this palliative in the vein hope of reganering support to his fledging presidency;
2. That he is now at opened war with IBB who annulled the June 12 election and OBJ who is the main beneficiary of the resolution of the June 12 imbroglio, he is made to believe that with this move he would regain his support in the Southwest at the same time rubbish the two former presidents; and
3. Unknown to him, he's playing the political script of Babagana Kingibe and his kinsman, the COS to the president. To all intents and purposes, the two are scheming a succession move to Buhari himself where, in the event of Buhari's leaving office, Kingibe would've been well positioned to succeed him as president. Clearly, in the Northeast, no politician has Kingibe's profile. He was a Permanent Secretary, Ambassador, National Chairman of the SDP, Abiola's Running mate, Minister of Internal and External Affairs and Secretary to the Federal Government. Already, through their scheming, Kingibe has taken over the DNI, SSS and the villa. All they need is to resuscitate the spirit of June 12 to which Kingibe would be the major beneficiary. With the GCON conferred on him, the benefits have started dropping. This is a highly sophisticated political scheming that President Buhari wouldn't perceive.
Nevertheless, the president is so engrossed with the trapping of power and its retention that he could fall for anything. And how big has he fallen! What a great pity for Nigeria ��!! What a great pity!!!

PointZerom:Eyaaa. See someone who said he's a millionaire with containers littered in Lagos containing plumbing materials and how he goes on vacation to the UAE with his wife and kids. Yet, 24 hours a day, he's on the forum, begging for attention, mentioning those he craves to be like while all we do is totally ignore the thing.
Your idleness and loneliness is just beginning. You have a loooooooooog road to walk son.

The military arm of the rats republic shutdown Aso Rock last year and chased Buhari out.
The ADC wouldn't be trailblazers, unfortunately.

Even though it is glaring to all that the fight against corruption is a mirage... And a way of gagging the opposition...
I think Obasanjo should be held accountable for all the atrocities during his tenure... Same goes for Jonathan...
Enough of this media hogwash and go after them... Nigerians want to see them in prison....
But I don't think it's possible because of the insincerity of the current administration... A president that doesn't see Abacha as corrupt... I think he lacks integrity

Igbos and chest beating, the same tiny chest they beat in 1967, at the end of the day over 3 million of them were used for pepper soup and suya while their most beautiful wives, daughters, cousins and nieces were used as sex slaves by Yoruba/Hausa/Fulani/Nupe/Kanuri soldiers. 50 years after, one of the stubborn goats called Cownu Nnamdi beat his tiny chest again. The Python paid him a visit, now nobody knows where he, his father, his mother and his whole family is. Now, they have started beating the same drum that plunged them into disgrace. Don't they ever learn? If you do anyhow, you will see anyhow

Both Buhari and Obasanjp are theives. Buhari should explain how his wife gets billions and how his son gets millions for power bike etc. Corrupt Buhari refused to tell us how much he spends on medical tourism after billions spent on State house clinic.
Obasanjp should explain how he became a billionaire after just 20k to win Presidency.
Eventually the APC that he midwifed into power must destroy his reputation.
Pro-Biafrans please rejoice cos the zoo is falling.
