Buhari Will Campaign At Akwa Ibom International Stadium, Federal Govt Insists by akinblog: 5:44am On Dec 25, 2018


The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on National Assembly, (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, on Monday insisted that Godswill Akpabio International Stadium would be used for the inauguration of the All Progressives Congress’ presidential campaign on Friday.

Governor Udom Gabriel Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State had rejected the application for the use of the stadium, citing the Nigeria Premier football league season that would start soon and the closure of the stadium by Julius Berger, a firm handling its maintenance.

But speaking at a media briefing in Uyo, Enang said the party would use diplomacy to ensure that Buhari use the stadium for campaign.

He, however, said that if diplomacy failed it would have no option but to still go ahead to use the stadium.

Enang said, “The Akwa Ibom State Government had stated that it was preserving the field for the football match coming up next year, and that the Godswill Akpabio Stadium will not be used for the campaign.

“We will continue to use diplomacy but if diplomacy fails, we will still use the stadium. It is public facility, a collective heritage of the Akwa Ibom people, Buhari is the President of Nigeria and nobody can restrain him from using any facility anywhere in the country. The President has been fair, kind and generous to Akwa Ibom people.”

Acknowledging that Udom had some measure of immunity, Enang said such immunity should stop where the right of the people started and where the collective sovereignty of the Federal Republic of Nigeria was involved.

He said the APC would resist every attempt by Udom to blackmail the state.

Enang, who said the APC 2019 presidential campaign would take off on December 28, added that Buhari would present the party’s flag to its governorship candidates in Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Delta, and Rivers states during the event.

“President Muhammadu Buhari and the 2019 presidential candidates of the APC will be in Akwa Ibom State on Friday, December 28, 2018 for the take off of his 2019 presidential campaign.

“The President is coming with the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, national leaders of the party, national officers and all the serving governors under the platform of the party.

“The governorship candidates of Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Rivers and Delta states will be officially presented with the party’s flag,” Enang said.

He explained that the campaign would kick off in the state because Akwa Ibom people had accepted the President and that the state was ripe for harvest because “the governor has performed below average.”

Wow!
This is so emotional now.
Every sane and honest Nigerians love President MUHAMMADU BUHARI.

Acknowledging that Udom had some measure of immunity, Enang said such immunity should stop where the right of the people started and where the collective sovereignty of the Federal Republic of Nigeria was involved.

They cannot heed to the rejection of use, because they're a government of tyranny and nepotism. It's in their genetic makeup to go against what is right.
If they can choose to disobey court orders, who is Udom they won't disobey.

Watch as their paid goons without consience come here to spew their regular thrash.

Before I am labelled an IPOB yoot, I want to declare it first pe "Omo Yoruba ni mii, ko kan si aye lati ma fi ami si oro mi". I voted Mr. President - General Mohammed Buhari - in 2015, and that's perhaps the second worst decision I ever made in my life. The first being campaigning for him.

The APC led federal government has failed and have no business at the helm of state affairs.

Firstly, As far as I know the Stadium is owned by the state, but the federal government plans to use it forcefully "if diplomacy fails."

Secondly, is Buhari going there to campaign in the Capacity of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria or as the presidential Flag bearer of the APC? If the latter is the case, why can he not be restrained from using public property for his personal/party business?


Thirdly, if Atiku was the one being denied use of the stadium, on what grounds would he have stood upon to make utterances such as the Federal Government has made?

"Acknowledging that Udom had some measure of immunity, Enang said such immunity should stop where the right of the people started."

Lastly. Buhari and his cohorts lack the capacity to speak of 'Rights of the People:' the concept is alien to them. Thesame man who has El-ZakZaky and others locked up; and wants to "Forcefully" use a facility for his Campaign has no business speaking of rights.

Buhari is Just too Arrogant.

Buhari is a failure whose only achievement in office is to gallivant round the world and take pictures...

A man described by POTUS as lifeless
A man described by Putin as brain dead

Buhari is a disease to the country
A man described by his wife as not being in control of his own government...

Buhari is a terrorist
Everywhere is tainted with blood... If Boko Haram is not killing... The Army must be killing unarmed civilians..

Only fools support this cow government

No governor can restrain Buhari from using any facility of the government. Buhari is not Jonathan that did not know his left and right. When Obasanjo was ceasing allocation of the state because of one person Buhari will not do that because he is for the people not for a single political juggernaut. Akwa ibom state stadium is build by public funds.

So the president can use state facilities by force?

Is that not a clear abuse of power?

The CEO of the state does not want you to but you want to force your will on the people.

Udom should do a press conference and tell his people how the FG is infringing on his constitutional mandate entrusted on him by the akwa ibom people as governor .

Play him as a tyrant and a dictator.

And the entire purpose of his visit would be defeated.

This kind of thing happens because of the system of government we practice. Udom should understand we practice federal system of government, whether he likes it or not, Federal government must use it.

This same thing happened during PDP in rivers state. Campaigning doesn't gaunrantee winning, same crowed that attended PDP campaign, will still attend APC campaign cos we are all hungry and looking for free money. So, he should chill and open the gates for them.
