PDP Dares INEC, Re-open Presidential Campaign On Monday / Poll Shift: Oshiomhole Dares INEC, To Resume Campaigns Despite Restriction / WAEC Has Confirmed Adeleke’s Certificate, Show Yours – CUPP Dares Buhari (2) (3) (4)
|CUPP Dares INEC, Asks Opposition Parties To Resume Campaign For Atiku by escodotman: 1:36pm On Feb 17|
The Coalition of United Political Parties on
Sunday asked member parties to shun the
directive by the Independent National Electoral
Commission and resume campaigns ahead of
the Saturday’s presidential election.
Chairman of INEC, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, had
during an interactive session with stakeholders
in Abuja on Saturday said political parties could
not resume campaigns despite the
postponement of the presidential election
earlier scheduled for February.
Answering a question raised by a former
Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka, who
represented the National Chairman of the
Peoples Democratic Party at the session,
Yakubu had said since campaign for the election
ended last Thursday, parties could not resume
But CUPP, in a statement by its national
spokesman, Imo Ugochinyere, on Sunday said
Yakubu’s position was unconstitutional.
Ugochinyere said the nation’s Electoral Act
stipulated that shall end 24 hours prior to the
day of election.
He argued that since the presidential election
had been shifted to Saturday, political parties
are at liberty to resume campaign till midnight
He, therefore, asked member parties to
resume campaigns from Sunday and mobilise
voters for the presidential candidate of the
Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku

The statement read, “In view of the provisions
of the Section 99 of the Electoral Act, the over
51 member parties of the Coalition of United
Political Parties hereby direct all members to
return to the campaigns fields and
recommence campaigns and end by midnight
of Thursday, February 21, 2019 as required by
“Section 99(1) of the Electoral Act provides that
public campaigns shall end 24 hours prior to
the day of polling. “It is, therefore, wrong to
expect that political parties will stop campaigns
on February 14 for polls that will open on
February 23. “It is unlawful and statutorily
wrong to curtail the clear intendment of this
section of the Electoral Act which is clear and
“Campaigning until 24 hours prior to the day of
polling is a statutory right of parties and cannot
be taken away, curtailed or abridged by any
executive fiat. “INEC cannot, on its own accord,
limit the period of campaigns as it is regulated
by law. “Member parties are hereby directed to
continue campaigns from today (Sunday) and
focus on voter remobilisation and ensure that
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is elected and declared
winner of the presidential election.”

Whether they further campaign or not, majority of Nigerians have already made up their minds to vote for Atiku.

Trouble makers everywhere. These guys are no respecter of law, and should be ready to face the consequences.
Buhari has won this election anyway, so their childish antics really does not matter.
But let it be on record as it is now, that Atiku and his cohorts(supporters)wants there to be violence in Nigeria.

HOW OBASANJO and ATIKU MADE NIGERIANS JOBLESS.
A. NigerDock is the largest ship fabrication yard in West Africa sub region. When it was so JBld, its Ex-MD Engr. Nkpubre Okon, openly stated how "Mr Job Creator" ignored the Transport Ministry then to Open bid for NigerDock.
Atiku's preferred bidder, 'Global Energy' that agreed to increase NigerDock's workforce from 4,800 to 6,000 as part of privatization agreement dismissed 2,200 immediately it took ownership. Jagal Group that took over after Global Energy lost out on power play also sacked 1,400.
B. Nigeria Port Authority reform was purely contrived to grab landed properties. 10,000 workers were sacked & 133 bids opened for NPA properties consisting of 68 properties in Apapa, 28 houses in Ikoyi. The highest reserves bid was for a property in Ikoyi fixed at N390.4 Million.
C. NIGERIA RAILWAY
Did Atiku forget how 7000 railway workers were sacked in 2005 without compensation to reduce its workforce to 6,300? Another 1,260 were fired in 2006. When ATIKU and his Headmaster were leaving in 2007, they left ~N5 Billion in unpaid Railway pension arrears.
D. FEDERAL SECRETARIAT IKOYI
In 2006, Babalakin's Resort Ltd acquired this 15 storeys prime asset overgrown with weeds from atiku and OBJ through a Development Lease Agreement (DLA) for N7.2Billion. A Court has asked Buhari to pay N54 Billion to Babalakin for that blunder.
The DLA, dated October 10, 2006, granted Babalakin Resort Ltd a 99-years lease to redevelop the Federal Secretariat complex, that OBJ & ATIKU had abandoned for 7 years into 480 luxury apartments. This was at the eve of their departure from government. The transaction was one for the road.
The DLA hit the rocks when Lagos State Govt in the interest of the public indicated willingness in acquiring the Federal Secretariat complex. LASG insisted it should be accorded right of first refusal since LASG is the Issuing Authority of the C of O, coupled with other reasons.
Finally, lets compare OBJ & Atiku's first 3yrs in power to the first 3yrs of PMB that hasn't retrenched one civil servant, but has bailed out states on salaries. Lets not forget Atiku was in charge of the economy and OBJ gave him free hand until Galaxy Backbone scandal happened.
In 2002, first 3yrs of the Obasanjo/Atiku, manufacturing accounts for 6% of GDP. Nigeria's GDP fell by half for d first time in 20yrs. This was d year all textile factories in Nigeria closed down and unemployment was 28% within d formal sector alone; I repeat, alone!!
In 2002, UN estimated that 70% of Nigerians live below poverty line compared to 48.5% in 1998 under a military rule. Life expectancy fell from 54yrs to 51yrs. Two-fifth of every child below age 5 were malnourished and only 50% of the 128Million Nigerians have access to clean water.
FACTUAL REPORT ON HOW ATIKU SUPERVISED THE SALES OF OVER 145 FG INVESTMENTS AS A VICE PRESIDENT !!!
Please any or all ATIKU supporters or his campaign structure are free to deny these submission with facts not sentiments.
“As Head of National Council on Privatization (NCP), from 1999, atiku dug Nigeria's economic grave for today's extreme poverty and unemployment.
There were over 600 federal assets when Atiku's NCP started selling.
Atiku should tell us who bought what and what was left for the country when he left power.
To who did Atiku sell the following companies:
Transcorp Hilton Hotel
NICON Luxury Hotel
Sunti Sugar Ltd
Bacita Sugar Ltd
In 2007, Onigbolo Cement operating at 500,000 tonnes per annum was sold to Dangote at N1.7Bn �
To those selling Atiku, let me remind you of Senate public hearing of August, 2011 which succinctly captures how Atiku through retinue of cohorts, fronts, shell companies, ring fenced over 70% of FG's assets through a brazen daylight robbery privatization that he supervised.
This is nothing sensational. Its real life facts and all the Senators are alive today.
The 2011 privatization Senate committee was made up of Senator Ahmed Lawan – Chairman, Senators Babafemi Ojudu, Philip Aduda, Mohammed Ndume, Ifeanyi Okowa, Hope Uzodinma and Mohammadu Magoro.
Lets look at Aluminium Smelting Company, ALSCON, that Atiku privatized.
ALSCON which Nigeria built with $3.2 billion, was sold to a Russian firm, Russal, for $130million. As of the time of sale, ALSCON had received $120million for the dredging of Imo River, but was never done.
When the Senate Seating of August, 2011 asked the Russian company the whereabouts of the $120million dredging money, the company's Deputy Managing Director, Vitaly Kuzrestov, said that the money has been used for Environment Impact Assessment."
FG's Five percent share in Eleme Petrochemical worth USD27 million was never presented at the National Council on Privatization before it was sold to Indorama.
Indorama recovered this amount selling Polyethylene and Urea to the entire west Africa sub-region in just 14 months.
The Atikulate Business Theory: Sell to yourself Government assets that leaves millions in penury, to set up personal businesses that provides for a few. Atiku didn't employ the few hundreds he employed because he likes them, he needs them to work to preserve what he took from Government
A man who supervised sales of over 145 federal investments as a vice president, without a thought for today wants to be president.
He didnt revitalize them.
He didnt resuscitate them.
He sold them to whomever agrees to his personal terms
If 9ja fail na u and I go suffer ram...

Sowore, his fake presidental campaign is being jointly sponsored by Aso Rock and Tinubu . Sowore's role is to be allocated more votes than he actually garnered in the swing SW region to provide a cover of legitimacy to his campaign and also to reduce votes to Atiku. But Sowore's grand act scene is reserved for when INEC announces Buhari as winner in an obviously rigged election . Sowore is then expected to congratulate Buhari for winning the polls and from there he will use his rag sheet Sahara Reporters to discredit and dismiss any grievances by the PDP.
If you intend voting this morally bankrupt airhead Sowore , why not just vote Buhari instead since Sowore, just like that fraud Nnamdi Kanu and that Moloch priest Father Mbaka are all working for a Buhari's election for their own selfish gain.
