Lying, Fake News; Atiku’s Campaign Mantra – BMO

The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has alleged that the slew of fake news, especially on social media, targeted at the Nigerian Military is the handiwork of Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Presidential Candidate Atiku Abubakar and his media organisation.  

The group stated that recent untrue claims of terrorists’ attacks on our military, desertion by Police personnel, allegations of corruption scandals in the military hierarchy and the resurfacing of a 2014 claim by soldiers of lack of weaponry are sponsored fake news by the opposition candidate Atiku Abubakar.

In a statement signed by Niyi Akinsiju and Cassidy Madueke, Chairman and Secretary respectively, BMO stated that the Atiku Abubakar campaign, having no issues to bring forward, has resorted to sponsoring fake news items aimed at tarnishing the image of Nigeria’s Armed Forces and security personnel.

“Atiku Abubakar’s desperation knows no bounds; his recent moves to sponsor narrative through fake news that paint Nigeria’s security personnel as weak and incapable of carrying out their duties, is an example of the PDP candidate’s desperation and lack of patriotism.”it noted that “the PDP campaign, finding no fault in the current leadership of the Nigerian Army, had began sponsoring old videos from 2014 with the aim of selling a narrative that suggests that the military under President Buhari has not been well-taken care of like it was during their 16 year rule of malfeasance.”

The group highlighted that a recent report by an American firm making unbacked claims that the recently slain former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Vice Marshal Alex Badeh, was killed to hide corruption under the current Defence leadership was fake news and the handiwork of Mr Brian Ballard, the United States lobbyist Atiku procured at $90,000 a month.

“It is shameful that a former Vice President of Nigeria would procure the service of an American lobby firm to sponsor fake news aimed at attacking the morale and credibility of Nigeria’s Armed Forces.”in addition to this is the hiring of foreign trolls to man their online handles in a way that is  against National interest. “The whole aim is to destroy national institutions including INEC and cause confusion after realising that they have lost the contest even before the votes are cast.

“This goes to emphasise the fact that Mr Abubakar does not have Nigeria’s interest at heart and must be kept far away from the seat of power.
“The PDP has nothing to sell to Nigerians; it has a candidate who is notorious for corruption allegations and is distrusted across the globe; asides being the candidate of a party responsible for the pillage of Nigeria’s treasury.”

The group called on Nigerians to be wary of Atiku and his party as they would begin promoting fake news items in attempts to compare the Buhari administration to their horrid past.BMO also accused the PDP Presidential candidate’s media handlers of lying when they claimed that President Buhari has a record of trafficking illicit funds. 

“It is a blatant lie that Atiku Abubakar, as head of Customs at the Lagos airport in 1984 stopped the ADC of the then Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, from smuggling in 53 suitcases of looted money. “This is a matter that was settled back then. The suitcases were the personal belonging of the then Nigerian Ambassador to Libya who was returning to the country after his tour of duty with his three wives and sixteen children.

“The late Ambassador was coming into the country at the same time as the Emir of Gwandu whose son was General Buhari’s ADC and his suitcases were falsely presented to the public as those of the Emir.”So from all indications, the suitcases which were cleared through Customs by soldiers had nothing to do with Buhari and there was nothing to suggest that illicit funds were being brought into the country.”

It consequently urged Nigerians to be cautious of the opposition party in the run up to the 2019 Presidential elections.“Nigerians must be wary in the coming weeks. The party which has no agenda to sell would continue promoting lies on the media.”It would, like one of its recent converts, begin to trivialise the impact of corruption and even attempt to normalise it, Nigerians must fight and reject this.”

Kwara APYF Raises Alarm Over Smear Campaign Against APC Guber Candidate

The Kwara State Chapter of the All Progressives Youth Forum (APYF), a youth group under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has cried out over a propaganda video tagged ‘Ramoni Dagboru’ allegedly orchestrated by Senate President Bukola Saraki.

In a press statement signed by the State Coordinator, Tunde Salau, he noted that the video portrayed the APC gubernatorial candidate, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazak as a trouble maker following the fracas that played out at the Ilorin Emirate Descendants Progressive Union (IEDPU) conference which held recently at the Emir’s palace.

The statement partly reads:

“While a response had already been given to the false accusation that the APC candidate was responsible for what transpired at that conference, judging by the fact that it was not Abdulrahman Abdulrazak’s supporters that were booing him, throwing chairs and shouting SAI LEADER; we must however make haste to expose their latest antics of pitching the APC candidate against the Alimi dynasty and the highly revered emir of Ilorin in particular.

“It is noteworthy to observe that Dr. Bukola Saraki knows the weakness of an average Ilorin person and he has always use this to a good political advantage. He knows that an Ilorin man would never joke with anything that touches the great Alimi dynasty and the Emir, being the symbol of Ilorin culture and tradition.

“This explains why during the politics of 2007, the same Bukola Saraki claimed that the late Mohammed Alabi Lawal, then the governorship candidate of the All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP) has sworn to depose the emir the moment he returns as governor. It was this falsehood, initiated and promoted by Dr. Saraki, that turned many Ilorin people against the late Governor Mohammed Lawal.

“It was therefore a familiar strategy that Dr. Saraki is again deploying when he said that Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazak disrespected the emir and forced him to leave the scene of the IEDPU event as a result of his ‘bad conduct’. This is vintage Dr. Saraki playing on the emotion of Ilorin people and turning them and the emir against the APC candidate. A desperate man will certainly result to all the strategies and formulas in his play book; and that is exactly what Dr. Saraki is doing.

“For 16 years, beginning from 2003 till date; Bukola Saraki has held unto the levers of power in our State without any commensurate development. A man who in 16 years could not repair dilapidated infrastructures across the State is certainly ‘Ada’luru’ (town spoiler). A man who in 16 years couldn’t fix our deathtrap of roads is the greatest spoiler of not only our city but also our dear State.

“A man who allegedly sponsored armed robbers to attack the State and still went about boasting that he refunded more than what the armed robbers stole, without sparing a thought for lost lives, is indeed the ‘ada’leru dona ru’ of Kwara State. Indeed, a man who in 16 years couldn’t provide drinkable water to the people he claimed to love is indeed not only ‘ada’lu ru’ but also ‘ota ilu’ (enemy of our State and its people).

“We know and it’s clear to us that no man who enjoys total control of a people’s commonwealth the way Saraki does will relinquish it without putting up a fiercest fight. We know the desperate Saraki will fight even more dirty and malign the character of the opposition candidates just to temporarily veil the people’s eyes with emotion and escape the scrutiny of his bad leadership over the years. But the people are smarter, and they can definitely see beyond the emotional and sentimental game Saraki is playing.

“For the record, we would like to remind Dr. Bukola Saraki that the ‘Ot’oge’ slogan of our campaign is no longer just a message; it is a resolve of the people to take their destinies in their hands this time and put an end to the selfishness of a few ruling class that have consistently abuse public trust and mandate.

“Saraki and his hangers on may keep attacking our candidate, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazak; but we tell them that they are focusing attention in the wrong place. This is not about one candidate or even a party; it is about the people. We would see how Saraki will win against the iron cast resolve of the people to free themselves from nearly two decades of slavery and servitude.”

Ribadu Turns In Structure For Buhari Campaign, Says Opposition ‘Gang Up’ Will Be Defeated

Pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mallam Nuhu Ribadu has said that opposition against President Muhammadu Buhari will be “roundly defeated”. 

Ribadu said the February presidential election is a referendum between a past that should forever be forgotten and a new chapter of probity and accountability. 

He spoke in Yola on Monday at a ceremony to hands off his gubernatorial campaign structure, campaign offices and vehicles to the reelection bid of President Buhari.

Mallam Ribadu aspired for the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa state but lost to incumbent Mohammed Jibrilla. 

He said he and his supporters will work assidiously to ensure sound victory of President Buhari in Adamawa State.

He appealed to APC supporters in the state to work towards doubling votes secured by President Buhari in the last election, during the February election. 

“There is consensus among Nigerians of goodwill. Nobody wants return of those faces that are synonymous with our failure as a country. We have moved on, we should not allow them to dragged us back.

“For the past 3 years EFCC and others have been struggling to recover wealth stolen from this country within just a few years. We are happy now that such wanton stealing is not happening. We should not allow those who have no problem with stealing our wealth to get back on the wheels” he said.

He said the people of Adamawa State have no reason not to support President Buhari due a number of achievements of the administration.

“This state is a farming state. Our farmers have been supported through Anchor Borrowers. We now have fertilizer all over. 

“In terms of infrastructure, Adamawa is witnessing massive revolution. A number of roads are currently ongoing in the state. We have never had it so good.” He said.

Ribadu also gave Buhari the credit for return of peace in the state which he said was not the case in 2015. 

“Many communities in Adamawa state were under Boko Haram occupation. The capital, Yola, was being threatened but today everyone is at peace, all displaced persons have been relocated to their towns. 

The former director general of the Ribadu Campaign Organisation, Alhaji Salihu Bawuro said Ribadu and his campaign council agreed to hand over vehicles and other resources donated to the Ribadu campaign to the presidential campaign of President Buhari, because of shared values. 

“Apart from our campaign directorate at the centre, and zones, we have structures of active youths, women and others in all wards of the state. We will all go out to ensure our beloved president is successful in the polls,” he said. 

Bawuro said his campaign office in the the state capital and the 21 local governments of the state have been redesigned for the new mandate.

New Year: Prepare To Take Back Your State, Uchendu Urges Rivers People

The senator representing Rivers East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Andrew Uchendu, OON, has urged all well meaning citizens of Rivers State, to prepare to take back Rivers State, to what it used to be.

Uchendu, Acting Chairman, Senate Committee on Public Procurement, who gave the charge in his New Year message to his constituents, declared that 2019 would be a better year for everyone.

He said: “I congratulate my constituents and the entire citizens of Rivers State, who, by the special grace of God, and despite the challenges of 2018, have come to see the light of 2019. I believe that, since there is life, 2019 will be a better year for all of us.

“As a young man, I watched with great excitement and admiration, the growth and development of Rivers State. Unexpectedly and sadly, as an adult, I have seen the worst of times in its history. I have seen our youths dismember body parts of fellow youths. I have seen beheaded bodies dumped in public places.

“It is my prayer that, in this new year, as a state, and as a people, we will not go through the sad experiences and commentaries of 2018.

“While we pray fervently for the grace of God, our recognised traditional rulers, the clergy, and other statesmen, must be prepared to call a spade, a spade, and courageously call erring politicians and deviant members of the society to order.

“As individuals, and as a group, we must learn to condemn that which is condemnable, and appreciate that which is good for all of us.”

The federal lawmaker wished Rivers people God’s guidance and prosperity in their endeavours, and the ability to surmount various challenges in the new year.

BMO Raises Alarm Over Atiku’s Plot To Bring In Illicit Funds

The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has raised an alarm over a grand plot by the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar to bring illicit funds into the country ahead of the 2019 elections.

It consequently wants the Central Bank of Nigeria and relevant security agencies including the Customs and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to be on the lookout for cross border movement of large sums of dollars into the country.

BMO said in a statement signed by its Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke that it is as a result of the desperation to bring money stashed abroad into the country with a view to outspending the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).  

“We have it on good authority that the PDP and its Presidential candidate are making strenuous efforts to bring in public funds stashed abroad including those from recent sales of assets in Angola which were acquired with illicit funds.

“We also know that the former Vice President has made promissory transaction commitments on a number of strategic national assets including the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and a percentage holding in the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) to a foreign syndicate.

“All these are out of desperation and as a result of his inability to raise funds from governors elected on PDP platform, many of whom are themselves locked in stiff battles for their seats”, it said.

The group explained that the move by the PDP Presidential candidate follows stringent measures put in place by the CBN and EFCC to ensure sanity in the banking sector.This BMO said is against the backdrop of how top officials of the last PDP government used some banks especially Fidelity Bank to move public funds to party officials in all states of the federation before the last election.it added “It is clear to Atiku Abubakar and PDP elements that the President Muhammadu  Buhari Administration has put in place a system that has made it difficult for the type of situation in 2015 where former Petroleum Resources Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke could warehouse $115,000,000 (One hundred and fifteen million dollars) which was then shared among party officials to influence electoral officials.

“They also know that even the EFCC is very much on the alert at local airports as seen in the manner its operatives have twice in recent times intercepted undeclared sums of money running into millions of dollars.

“So these opposition elements are now working out a more crooked way of bringing in money through the borders in order to circumvent the system before and during the February 2019 elections”.BMO consequently wants all relevant agencies to double their efforts to enforce provisions of the of the Money Laundering Prohibition Act, 2011 (as amended).

Lagos 2019: SDP Guber Candidate Vows To Build Fourth Mainland Bridge

The governorship candidate of Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Lagos State, Dr. Adetokunbo Pearse at the weekend promised to build the Fourth Mainland Bridge and complete the light rail project if elected the governor of the state next year.

Pearse, in an exclusive interview with THISDAY, stated that upon completion, the two projects would ease traffic congestion in the state.

The guber candidate noted that he had an ambitious plan to construct an alternative corridor route from eastern corridor to western part of the state to decongest Lagos-Ibadan expressway.  

“The state’s first civilian governor, Alhaji Lateef Kayode Jakande started the water transportation system. But as soon as some other governors came in, they messed it up.”

“I will renew water transportation so that we can move around Ikorodu and Badagry by water. If there is an emergency, you can move by water. The major problem in Lagos is congestion. If you want to build an economy, you improve transportation.”

He said the gridlock on the state’s roads “is destroying economy. Imagine someone who is ill being trapped in a gridlock. It happened to someone I knew who died in a car after spending three hours in the traffic and this happens all the time.

“The first thing I will do is to build drainage all over the state so that when rain falls, the water will flow into the canal, which will run into the river. Water on the roads damages the roads and create problem of traffic,” he added,

APC Raises Alarm Over Plot To Implicate Its Kwara Governorship Candidate, Others

The media unit of the campaign organisation of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, has raised an alarm over what it described as plot to implicate their principal and other top shots of the APC in the state.

According to a statement by the media tea, the plot is to import thugs and dangerous weapons into the state to disrupt the peaceful electioneering campaign of its candidate disguising as party supporters.

The statement reads “We wish to alert the general public to intelligence report that the Kwara PDP, in connivance with the state government, plans to bring thugs with dangerous weapons into the state to disrupt the peaceful electioneering campaign of Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, the APC candidate. 

The plot involves thugs masquerading as APC supporters, wearing shirts and vests branded with APC logo and name of the candidate, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, to give the impression that APC supporters are responsible for whatever evil acts they may commit. They also plot to flood the town with machetes branded with the name of the candidate to unleash violence on the state so as to portray the APC and its candidate in a bad light. 

We have resisted the temptation to dismiss these reports as mere distraction common during electioneering. However, we are mindful of the antecedents of PDP and its sponsors in Kwara State. We recall that similar underhand tactics were used in the past – especially from 2003 through 2011 – to portray their opponents as violent,  whereas they, indeed, were the ones who plotted all the evil. 

Our party and candidate are irrevocably committed to the sanctity of human life and property. We are committed to the social, economic and political uplift of the good people of Kwara State through decent and peaceful electioneering campaign, believing it is the acceptable route to secure a brighter future for our people. This is why we say O To Gé to crippling poverty and underdevelopment in Kwara State.

We therefore urge the security agencies to do everything to abort this plot to unleash violence on the people of our state.

5,000 Defect From PDP, Others, To APC In Kwara

No fewer than 5,000 people from different parties in Kwara State South Senatorial District on Saturday defected to the All Progressives Congress at a rally in Omu-Aran, Kwara, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

The defectors, majorly from the Peoples Democratic Party were received and presented with their membership cards at the APC campaign flag-off in respect of Ekiti/Irepodun/Isin/Oke-Ero Federal Constituency in the 2019 general elections.

The leaders of the new members, in their separate remarks at the event, expressed their commitment and readiness to contribute their quota toward ensuring the party’s victory at the poll.

According to them, only the APC at all levels of governance could help to actualise their yearnings and aspirations.

Dr Seyi Adigun, a PDP chieftain and defector from Ajase Ward 2 in Irepodun Local Government Area, in a remark, said every reasonable politician must be firm in taking positive decisions concerning his or her political career.

Adigun, presently a Board member, Kwara State School of Nursing, Oke-Ode, who claimed to represent over 1,500 members, said he was convinced that the APC truly represented the best interest of Nigeria and Nigerians.

“Any reasonable person or politician must know the right time to stay or quit and as far as I’m concerned the APC by every standard represents the best interest of Nigerian people.

“I have the conviction that in any free, fair and credible election in Nigeria like the recently concluded bye-election in the state, the APC will always come out victorious,’’ he said.

Also, Mr Dare Bamkole, a leader of the defectors from Oke-Ero Local Government Area and a former Special Assistant on Sports to Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed, said their defection was informed by APC’s overwhelming and people-oriented manifestos.

Mr Bashir Bolarinwa, the state APC Chairman, while receiving the decampees, said he remained the party’s authentic chairman in the state irrespective, of a recent High Court judgment nullifying the party’s state executive.

Bolarinwa urged the new members to be dedicated to the party’s principles and ideals, saying the challenges ahead required more commitment and sacrifice.

“What is important to us is that none of our party members should lose sleep over such a judgment.

“I want to make it also clear that all our candidates for the 2019 general elections remained intact and that I Bashir Bolarinwa remained the authentic chairman of APC in Kwara State,” he said.

Rep. Raheem Olawuyi, the recently sworn-in lawmaker, representing  Ekiti/Irepodun/Isin/Oke-Ero Federal Constituency and also the party’s candidate for the same slot in 2019 general elections, was optimistic of his victory at the poll.

He promised that his present and future representation would help to accelerate the desired socio-economic development of the constituency.

“We still stand by our promise to the electorate before our victory in the last bye-election that we are going to do things differently as a way of impacting our people positively.”

NAN reports that the campaign witnessed large attendance of party members and leaders across the four councils in the constituency and beyond.

APC Berates PDP Over Call For Resignation Of INEC Chairman, IGP

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has berated the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for calling for the resignation of the INEC chairman and the Inspector General of Police (IG).

National Chairman of the ruling party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, while receiving a delegation of the United States-based National Democratic Institute (NDI) and International Republican Institute (IRI) in his office in Abuja yesterday, challenged PDP leaders to a debate over their perceived fears, saying they were the ones who put some of the systems in place when they were in office.

“They want the IG of the police to be removed; they want INEC boss to be removed, but if you look at the evidence on ground, the first election conducted under this president was in Bayelsa State and PDP won. The second one was in Anambra State, APGA, a small regional party, won, and once they win, there are no issues but when they lose, there would raise the issue of bias,” he said.

Regarding the president’s refusal to assent to the amended electoral law, the ruling party leader said the APC feels it is not right to change the election rule on the eve of such elections.

Oshiomhole further alleged that the PDP’s presidential candidate emerged from the primaries through vote-buying.

Referring to what happened with the outcome of 2015 elections, Oshiomhole said a number of PDP governors, including those of Rivers and Akwa Ibom States, benefited from the non-use of the card reader machine.

He said: “the Supreme Court tried to show their own bias in favour of the PDP, the court held that INEC rule affirmed the use of card reader but because it is not in the law, it is not necessarily binding.”

2019: Opposition Parties Demanding Money To Support Buhari – Oshiomhole

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, yesterday alleged that many small opposition political parties are demanding money from APC to endorse President Muhammadu Buhari for re-election in 2019.

Speaking while receiving a delegation of the United States-based National Democratic Institute (NDI) and International Republican Institute (IRI) in his office in Abuja yesterday, Oshiomhole said there is a worrisome development being witnessed as the country prepares for next year’s elections.

He said the ruling party has been inundated with requests from many of these parties which he described as “democratic merchants,” begging to be paid money to enable them announce their support for President Buhari.

He said many of the registered political parties which said they were fielding presidential candidates are now ganging up to endorse other candidates.

“I can tell you how many requests I have received from these so-called political parties that if you pay me this, we will announce that we are supporting your presidential candidate. So these people have formed political parties as platform to trade. We do not need to focus on those who are democratic merchants, creating more confusion, generating more heat,” he said.

PDP Lawmakers Accuse President Buhari Of Selective Implementation Of 2018 Budget

Lawmakers elected under the platform of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the House of Representatives have accused President Muhamamdu Buhari of selective implementation of the 2018 budget.

The lawmakers also described the 2019 budget proposal, which was presented to a joint session of the national assembly on Wednesday as “yet another hollow ritual.”

Briefing newsmen shortly after the budget presentation, the PDP members led by the house deputy minority leader, Chukwuka Onyema said the Buhari-led government has consistently failed to fully implement national budgets since it came to power.

He added that the APC government carried out a selective implementation of the 2018 budget even far beyond 40 per cent despite huge revenues from firs, NNPC, customs and other sources.

The lawmakers faulted Buhari’s claims of achievements on security; economy and anti-corruption saying security has deteriorated under his watch as attested to by the recent amnesty international report.

In a swift response to the PDP lawmakers’ assertion, the house spokesman, Abdulrazak Namdas lauded the impressive implementation of the 2019 budget, with special regard to critical physical infrastructure. Although he admitted hitches in the implementation of previous budgets but expressed optimism that the 2019 budget will take care of critical issues, such as the new minimum wage.

12 Million Farmers Mobilise for Buhari’s Reelection, To Contribute N100 Each

President Muhammadu Buhari’s return bid would receive a hefty financial boost this evening as 12 million farmers that benefited from the Central Bank of Nigeria’s Anchor Borrowers’ Programme plan a grand reception for him at the Presidential Villa, Abuja with a pledge to contribute N100 each to the president’s campaign fund, insisting that the current agricultural revolution taking place at the grassroot across Nigeria must continue.

The pledge would amount to a whooping N1.2billion and would be put together by the farmers under the auspices of Anchor Borrowers Farmers’ Association, whose membership runs across the country, particularly the North-west and the North-east, THISDAY reported.

Saying one good turn deserves another, one of the leaders of the farmers, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said they were happy with the president for his credit initiatives that had boosted their trade.

“Baba Buhari has been so good to us. So we think contributing N100 each will not be too much a way to appreciate him,” he said.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) had in line with its developmental function established the Anchor Borrowers’ Programme (ABP) and was launched by the president on November 17, 2015.

The programme is intended to create a linkage between anchor companies, involved in the processing, and small holder farmers (SHFs) of required key agricultural commodities. The programme thrust of the ABP is provision of farm inputs in kind and cash (for farm labour) to small holder farmers to boost production of these commodities, stabilize inputs supply to agro processors and address the country’s negative balance of payments on food. At harvest, the SHF supplies his/her produce to the Agro-processor (Anchor) who pays the cash equivalent to the farmer’s account.

As at August 2018, about N150 billion had been disbursed to farmers under the programme.
