Atiku Bitter He Doesn’t Have Access To Wealth As Before – APC

National Publicity Secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, has reacted to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) claims that President Muhammadu Buhari executed anti-people policies.

Recall that the PDP’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, while addressing party supporters in Sokoto State, stated that: “I am a politician, I am a businessman, I am into many things, I am also a farmer and knows exactly what the problem of Nigerians are. I have more than 1,000 cows in my farm. Please, we should not allow someone whose cows have not grown from 150, year in, year out, to come and tell us lies and propaganda again.”

But, Onilu, in a swift response, stated that the opposition party is aggrieved because the system is very difficult to compromise.

His words: “Funny enough, we sympathise with the PDP for saying so. It has become obvious that their anger is because people can no longer steal money the way they did; under 16 years of PDP rule. Is it because Atiku does not have access to compromise the system the way he has been doing that made him the richest Africa on the planet earth without any visible, practical business?

“He is embittered that this government has deprived him of those privileges he has been enjoying. Their position is understandable because the people Atiku and co referred to as people are the elite who are less than zero percent of the population that took all the money to buy and enjoy private jets, which they cannot afford now. It is really a pity for them.

“Which of the policies do they describe as anti people? Is it the several social investment programmes, is it the conditional cash transfer, the road projects that are ongoing that are anti-people policy?”

Atiku Is The Man That Can Bring Food To The Table – Saraki Tells PDP Supporters

Senate President Bukola Saraki says the presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is the one capable of bringing food to the table.

Saraki said this on Monday during the launch of the 2019 PDP presidential election campaign in Sokoto.

His words: “The man that can bring food to the table, the man that can fight security, the man that can unite Nigeria is Atiku Abubakar.”

He added that the PDP has come to make situations better and uplift the life of Nigerian citizens.

“Now, they will deceive you to say that this election is about Atiku Abubakar and President Muhammadu Buhari. But, the election is not between the two of them. The election is about you, it’s about you women, it is about you, the young people of Nigeria. It is about every Nigerian citizen who is suffering untold hardship on account of lack of leadership.

“So, we want to review a lot of things. For instance is your lives better now than in 2015? Is security better now than it was in 2015? Are we more united now in Nigeria than we were in 2015? So, these are the things that are on the ballot paper.

“It is not a contest between Atiku Abubakar and President Muhammadu Buhari.”

Bindow made the declaration at the inauguration of the 2019 APC campaign team for Yola North Local Government Area.

2019: Sanwo-Olu Replies Agbaje, Says Lagos Not In Bondage

Lagos State All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has refuted claims made by the the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Jimi Agbaje, that Lagosians are in bondage.

Sanwo-Olu stated this yesterday at the Palace of Akran of Badagry Aholu De Wheno Menu Toyi 1 during a consultative visit to the traditional rulers in the Badagry Division.

The APC guber candidate stressed that Lagosians are free citizens and not enslaved under the APC-led administration.

He said: “Some have started talking about freedom and insinuated that Lagos is in bondage. Unfortunately, we cannot begin to talk about freedom in the 21st century. This is insulting to humanity and the people of Lagos, especially because slavery and bondage were abolished in Badagry several decades ago. When they talk about freedom, we ask them freedom from what? We have had our freedom and everyone in Lagos is free. We have since moved away from the era of slavery, to era of prosperity with deep-seated aspiration for greater Lagos.

“We are aware of the challenges facing the people of Badagry on the rehabilitation of the expressway and we are promising that our administration would immediately hit the ground running and ensure the completion of that important road immediately we assume office by your votes.”

Sanwo-Olu reminded the royal fathers of the economic importance of tourism to the GDP of the state, maintaining that he would ensure a speedy completion of all projects that will improve the quality of lives of the people.

“It is no brainer that once we fix infrastructure, it will automatically jump-start development in the area.

2019: Oshiomole Stole The Mandate Of Imo APC, Okorocha Alleges

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has insisted the crisis rocking the state’s chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) may be irreconcilable considering various steps he had taken to address the situation.

Recall that Chairman of the reconciliatory committee the APC set up to look into the grievances in Imo State, Alhaji Abdullahi Ganduje, had assured that the first task of their mission, which is to ensure Governor Okorocha remained in the party had been completed, emphasising that the second phase of discussion which he said would be indoors would be favourable to APC members in the state.

However, Okorocha, in his response, said: “There shouldn’t have been crisis in the party because of the affinity of the members, we are like one big family. When we came in 2011, it was a miracle, the who is who in Imo politics were against us but we won that election. We moved from APGA to APC because of the name of President Muhammadu Buhari, which is synonymous with integrity. I am a foundation member of the APC. I suggested the name APC.

“When we started, we were called names, we were made to look like aliens in our state, this is the only state you have elected office holders that are of the APC extraction. Those Oshiomole gave the tickets were not APC members, the worst political injustice in the history of Nigeria happened in Imo.

“The only reason these people are here is because of Buhari, not because they have benefitted. The issue we have is with Adams Oshiomole, he stole the mandate of the people and gave it away for reasons best known to him. The people here are concerned because the name of the person on APC ticket is not the candidate of their choice. The situation at hand has gone beyond what we can manage.”

In the letters, both lawmakers made references to irreconcilable issues relating to the party primaries as part of the reasons for the resignation and defection.

Kazzim stated that “god-fatherism” played a vital role in the emergence of candidates to represent the party in the 2019 general elections.

The legislators said after due consultations with their constituents, it was time for them to part ways with the APC.

2019: Nigerian Masses Are With President Buhari – Campaign Organization

National Coordinator of the Buhari Campaign Organization (BCO), Alhaji Danladi Pasali, has warned there is no vacancy in Aso Rock as masses are set to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari at the 2019 presidential poll.

Pasali said this in Akure while inaugurating the Ondo State Chapter of the organization.

According to him, the current administration has reduced insurgency in the North East to the lowest level within the shortest period.

“Buhari will come back in 2019; it has become history already. In those days people are afraid to go to their churches and mosques due to insurgency, but it has now become a thing of the past because we have stopped it tactically.

“Imagine, the money meant for security was used for election under the PDP administration and many people also lost their lives to insurgency.

“Buhari made insurgency to become history in Nigeria.

“Those clamoring for former Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, to be released are not sincere,” he said.

Pasali said that the Buhari’s administration had improved the economy through empowerment programmes for youths and market women.

He said that PDP made Nigerians to lose over 10 million jobs through the sale of government properties.

Alhaji Gidado Ibrahim, the BCO Director of Communication and Strategic Planning, said that APC was not biased against any other political party, but wanted to engage in issue- based campaign.

“We are not against any political party, we have taken up the presidential campaign here from Ondo.

“We advised other political parties to campaign on issues and not to attack our president,” he said.
