Obasanjo hits Buhari and APC hard again.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has again criticised the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, maintaining that the government has failed.

 

The former president said this on Monday when he received members of the New Nigeria group at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

“The first lesson I learnt in my military training is never reinforce failure; what we have now is failure. Never you reinforce failure, let failure be failure,” he said.

Obasanjo had on Tuesday (January 23, 2018) issued a 13-page statement, criticising President Buhari’s performance and calling for a new movement to salvage the country from its challenges.

He had also warned the President against seeking re-election, alleging that the present government has failed in one of the areas it pitched as its ‘key point of action’ when it assumed office – the anti-corruption fight.

 

Incompetent Government?

Addressing members of the New Nigeria group at his residence today, the former president rated the present administration as ineffective.

He said, “The truth is this – when you have an ineffective and incompetent government, we are all victims and don’t let anybody deceive you.

“Those of you who are in business, your business could have been better today if we have a competent and effective and performing government.”

Obasanjo also accused the President of having a “poor understanding” of the dynamics of internal politics.

He warned Nigerians not to get carried away by the recent apology tendered by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as well as the reforms of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“This time, for us to make it, we need all hands on deck,” Obasanjo stated. “I have publicly said and I mean it that as a party, neither PDP nor APC can get us there; never mind about reforms and apology and all that,” he said.

Obasanjo further asked the APC to stop giving excuses that it has yet to perform better because it met challenges, noting that the party was aware of the challenges before it wrestled power from the PDP.

He then asked youths in the country to rise up to the challenge of providing the much needed new generation of leadership for the development of Nigeria’s socio-economic and political development.

The former president also asked the younger generation to take the bull by the horn, if they must effectively confront “power addicts” in their resolve to achieve the set goals and objectives of providing an alternative in the political leadership of the country.

He stressed the need for a “strong popular grassroots movement” in Nigeria, saying that’s the way to bring about the change, sustainability and stability the nation needs in its democracy

On the flip said, the former president said, “You cannot take PDP as it is, and APC as it is; but they are not all made of evil people, there are good people. I said PDP is leprous hand, APC is leprous hand, but there are some clean fingers in them.

“So, let’s take those clean fingers in them and graft the clean fingers in our own. That is the way to go and if we go that way, we will get there.

Mantu Confessed to rigging elections for PDP

During an interview on Channels Television, Mr Mantu, a former member of the PDP’s Board of Trustees, said he was actively involved in compromising election officials, security officers and even agents of rival parties to either assist in rigging candidates of the PDP to victory or look the other way in cases of obvious rigging.

“Yes, yes, I did. But I am now confessing the truth. What do I mean? I didn’t have to go and change election but you provide money. You give money to INEC boys to help; that is, they see any chance they should try and favour you. You provide money for the security. All our elections in the past, I’ve been in the game for about 20 years.Ibrahim Mantu

And I tell you each time it is not necessarily when I am contesting an election but when my party sponsors a candidate I would like that candidate to win the election. What we used to do before, we make provision for INEC, we make provision for security, we make provision for even agents of other parties so that they would not raise any objection to what we are able to get. Whether I rig myself or not, but when I provide those resources to the officials, I am rigging election.

“I believe so because if people are born again like me and refuse to do it. We the players, unless we give before somebody will take. Don’t give so you will not get a taker,” he said.

The interview has sparked outrage with people calling on the authorities to arrest and prosecute him for electoral fraud.

But Mr Mantu explained during the same interview that he decided to confess to election rigging because he was tired of the negative perception Nigerians have abroad.

“You didn’t even ask me why am I thinking this way,?” he asked the interviewer.

“I am tired of being seen as a criminal on the street of the world because you are a Nigerian. You assume that everybody is an innocent human being until being proven otherwise but whilst you are outside this country with a green passport and they see that you are a Nigerian, even if you are a pastor or an imam they will assume that you are criminally minded or you have criminal tendencies just because of where you come from. That must change,” he said.

He said he confessed because he was tired of the abundance of poverty in the country. He said he hopes that his confession will result in good governance by the election of credible people, who would prudently manage the resources of the country and ensure equitable wealth for everyone, into public office.

“I am tired of living in poverty in the midst of plenty. Even how much you have, you see people coming to you every day, my wife has given birth my relation is in the hospital. Every day. But if everybody has enough to take care of his or herself, they won’t come bordering you saying give me this, give me that.

“We have the resources that people can live decent lives without being beggars to those who have. Just because we haven’t gotten our own governance system right. So, we need good governance, good governance can only be provided by good people, good people who are truly repentant, who are actually there to serve the people, who are concerned about the well-being of the people being the primary concern. If we have such leaders, then I can tell you they would judiciously and prudently use our resources for the common good of everybody.”

RED CARD FOR FAYOSE, EKITI STATE GOVERNOR

Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on Sunday declared that he will contest to return as governor in the Ekiti State gubernatorial election scheduled for July 2018.

Fayemi,  who said he would visit the state secretariat of his party to officially declare his ambition anytime from April 14,  added that the official declaration would come after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), lifts the ban on open campaign ahead of the poll.

Fayemi, who was governor of Ekiti State between October 2010 and October 2014, spoke to journalists about his intent at a briefing at his Isan-Ekiti country home on Sunday.

Kayode Fayemi 

He said everything constitutionally, legally and legitimately possible would be done to ensure victory for the All Progressives Congress at the forthcoming governorship poll.

Fayemi said: “Do you need a rocket scientist to tell you that I am running? I was very clear that I am a process person, I am not going to jump the gun because there are rules and guidelines for electioneering.

“The body that is responsible for that has stated the obvious when you can actually start campaign. The fact that people are actually flouting the guidelines is a fault of INEC and INEC is not taking them up on it.

“That is my own attitude to it and at the appropriate time, I will tell my party because this is purely a party matter, it is not a public matter yet.

“So, I don’t really understand the level of curiosity whether I am running or I am not running. I am very clear that what we have in this state today is not what this state deserves.

“I have always been very clear that whatever it takes constitutionally, legally and legitimately to put our party in office in October 2018, we will do as a party.

“I have also gone ahead to say this meeting (held on Saturday) is our usual gathering; it is not a place to declare the intention to run but as to whether I am running or not, I am running.

“That is not debatable but I am a process person, I am not going to flout the law. You will know, you will all be invited when I decide to formally declare within the ambit of the guideline issued by INEC.”

However, Fayemi did not declare his intention when he hosted party leaders from ward to state levels to a quarterly meeting on Saturday, contrary to widespread speculations.

He had said at the meeting: “INEC has just released election notice, they said public campaign begins in Ekiti State on April 14. Let’s wait till then, whether we are sure of ourselves or not, we will know.”

But he said at the meeting that he had learnt his lessons following the loss of power to Governor Ayo Fayose in the 2014 governorship election while calling on party faithful who he had offended to forgive him.

Fayemi said Fayose cannot threaten him with any White Paper saying he has a Red Card to show Fayose at the election. He urged APC members to hold their Red Card in one hand and their Permanent Voter Card on the other hand.

The ex-governor, however, appealed supporters of governorship aspirants to stop running down others on the social media urging them to market their principals.

He added that election is not won on social media platforms,  but at the polling units.

Three (3) sure ways to make money before, during and after election in Nigeria.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE FORTHCOMING ELECTIONS IN NIGERIA

ALSO READ: Three sure ways to make money on Tooloaded NG without investment

  1. BECOME SOCIAL MEDIA ADVERTISER: The number one easiest way to make money legally in Nigeria Election period is to become an advertiser of a particular aspirant or party. Thank God to social media that made this easy though for those that could take advantage of it. Social media advert in this discuss could be in form of the two options below.

– Get gigs directly by yourself by approaching politicians around you that you could promote their advert on your social media for certain period of time and you will be paid for job well done. This could earn you millions of Naira only if you have the charisma. If you have chosen this option, please do it diligently and never take money from two opposition party’s aspirants or same party aspirants.

– Working with existing social media advert platforms or companies. I know this had cost a lot of pain to many people in the past but do not forget, if you do not loose sometimes you may not gain (no pain no gain). To those that does not know about this before, there exists a lot of companies that run social media adverts in Nigeria and they do require service of interested individual social to do this on terms of monthly payment for service. There are three things that are negatively common in the system they all operate:

i. They require registration fee between N3, 000 – N5, 000 which could be unaffordable for majority of those who may be willing to work with them.

ii. They require certain number of followers or friends the applicant has before been paid and this would be after one must have shared countless number of their daily posts. This is very bad as people tend to lose money they have worked so hard for. Also, those that mostly have this required number of followers are those that bought followers.

iii. They mostly end-up running away with people’s money. To those that have participated in one way or the other, you must have experienced this. Those that reaped-big are mostly those who first started with them, they must have gotten their money before things fall apart.

NOTE: Their running away after a while into the system is not always intentional rather it is due to unforeseen crash due to improper management, bad business forecast and finally promising people what they could not realize. (e.g paying N500 daily to more than N5000 Publishers when they are not even getting gigs up to N2M in a month. If you do the calculation you will realize where they are falling.)

There is a Yoruba adage that says “if we should close our eyes waiting for bad person to pass by, countless number of good people will also pass by”

2. PARTICIPATE AS INEC ADHOC STAFF

 It’s no more news that INEC as a body in Nigeria cannot employ permanent staffs to carry out all assignments in their official system not to talk of elections. They do not have such staff strength to organize election in Nigeria without employing short service of willing Nigerians as Adhoc staffs to help them carry out numerous form of assignment before, during and after election in Nigeria.  Although, Nigeria youth service corps members are the most category of people employed by this body but they still make use of reasonable number of non-serving personnel. You can check this link to check if you are qualified. If yes, register and make at least 26k under 2 weeks.

3. CLING TO SURE POLITICIANS FOR JOBS OR CONTRACTS WITH PROMISE OF MOBILIZING VOTERS FOR THEM.

This is very simple and straightforward as you can see. All you need is charisma and courage and prayer to meet top politicians and promise to work for them and be rewarded with job or contracts later. The contract aspect may be somehow difficult if you do not own a company to receive such contract. But not to fear about for now, you could always find way around that later as they do say “when we get to the bridge; we will know how to cross it”.
