2019: Obasanjo, IBB right to lead battle against Buhari – Gen. Temlong

This was contained in a congratulatory letter by the former Head of State to the President ahead of his 76th birthday.

President Buhari will turn 76 on Monday, December 17.

General Babangida, in his message, said:

“As we get over our mid-seventies, we can say with all sense of modesty that we should celebrate every birthday anniversary with prayers in order for us to thank Allah for all the blessings and the bounties He showered upon us.

“It is only fair that we pause and reflect in our own different ways on all the life’s challenges we face day by day and the positive strides we have been blessed to attain.”

He added that “a typical day in the life of a Nigerian President requires faith, poise, patience, tenacity, experience, strategic thinking and quality character for one to get through it.”

General Babangida stated that Mr Buhari has been “an excellent role model to many young aspiring politicians and even to the not too young, because of the way and manner you have managed to sustain the survival of our country as an indivisible one nation albeit in the face of many daunting diversions.”

The former leader was positive about the Buhari administration, citing and commending the president’s signature anti-corruption campaign.

“You achieved great success in the fight against corruption, terrorism and other forms of insecurity in addition to getting our country out of economic recession.

“It is heartwarming that at 76, in spite of the numerous onerous challenges of leadership, you have managed to remain focused and have shown tremendous energy and vibrancy in running the affairs of state with your acknowledged patriotism and commitment to serve our nation diligently with honesty and sincerity of purpose.”

“I wish to congratulate you for all the achievements you have recorded in your lifetime and particularly for your humility, deep sense of honesty and faith you have shown in the various aspects of governance, politics and democracy as our President.”

“I join the first lady, Aisha and all your children and grandchildren in wishing you many happy returns of your birthday. Aisha’s loyalty and support, as the home front commander, is invigorating since by our age we require much comfort, care and affection at home. Welcome to our club of the over 75,” the message concluded.

Exposure! New Documents Unveiled, Aso Rock In Laws Tearing Nigeria Apart

VIOLATING THE LAW
The procurement irregularities by the BCDA are a violation of federal contracting provisions, and were even acknowledged by the agency’s executive secretary who told PREMIUM TIMES he had no scruples blurring procurement regulations to “support small or upcoming firms” who may otherwise have been unable to secure contracts on the accounts of insufficient personnel, finances or other regulatory constraints.

But the Public Procurement Act (2007) does not permit federal agencies or their leaderships to manipulate laid down rules in favour of any segment of the society.

Section 23 (1) of the law says, “Where a procuring entity has made a decision with respect to the minimum qualification of suppliers, contractors or service providers by requesting interested persons to submit applications to prequalify, it shall set out precise criteria upon which it seeks to give consideration to the applications and in reaching a decision as to which supplier, contractor or service provider qualifies, shall apply only the criteria set out in the prequalification documents and no more.”
By listing companies that have no annual tax turnover of N50 million in 2015, 2016 and 2017, the BDCA is in violation of extant procurement law.

 


The law did not enumerate the requirements an agency must list for contractors, but it strictly emphasised that once an agency set its requirements in a public tender process, it must play by that rule till the end of the process.

No amendment or discretion could be exercised in the middle of the process.Nigeria’s public procurement processes have for years been dogged by abuses and violation of the enabling law.

But coming under an administration that promised to bring sanity into public service, including procurement process, the shortlisting of unqualified firms by the BCDA could further dampen the hope of anti-corruption campaigners that President Muhammadu Buhari’s government would be different.

“The fight against corruption is more potent when it is effective at the prevention stage,” anti-corruption activist, Lanre Suraj,  “The public procurement in Nigeria is reputed to be responsible for 70 percent of corruption that has taken several trillions of naira into the hand of fraudulent individuals.”

Junaid Abdullahi, executive secretary of the BDCA, told PREMIUM TIMES the agency used its discretion in giving special concessions to some firms in violation of the law.

“We cannot be demanding a tax clearance of N50 million per year from a company that is small and bidding for contracts of N2 million, N5 million,” Mr Abdullahi said. “As long as it is done across board and no one is excluded” from benefiting from the relaxed rules.”

When reminded that the eight contracts scrutinised by PREMIUM TIMES ranged between N120 million and N250 million, Mr Abdullahi struggled to muddle up the matter, saying this newspaper was referring to a separate tender, a false claim he held on to despite repeated clarification by this reporter.

Mr Abdullahi, son-in-law to President Buhari, was not the head of BDCA during the controversial prequalifications. He assumed office towards the end of October following his appointment by the president, but has carried on with the flawed process.

 

Mr Suraj said those involved in prequalifying companies without due tax documents should be prosecuted for violating procurement regulations.
“If someone can breach what has been clearly and publicly listed as requirements in the invitation to tender, then the person should be arrested and prosecuted,” Mr Suraj said.

“You cannot change the rules midway into a bidding process, it is a criminal offence to violate the Public Procurement Act in such a manner.”The anti-corruption campaigner said federal lawmakers who nominated a large chunk of projects being executed by the BDCA are often responsible for nomination of contractors.

TRYING THEIR LUCK
A spokesperson for Ferab Hilltop Nigeria Limited, which has an annual average turnover of just N1.2 million, told PREMIUM TIMES the company knew it might not qualify for the project based on set out requirements, but tried its luck nonetheless.

“We bidded for so many things, even when you know that you do not have everything, but you could still try your luck, this is Nigeria,” the Ferab representative told PREMIUM TIMES by telephone. He declined to give his name.

“We have a lot to do and we do not have enough time.”

Great Jubilation In PDP Camp, As Strong God Father Receives The Greatest Commendation Ever

The Governor of Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, have been extolled for the political peace and development strides in the State.

The commendation came from various speakers at the fundraising dinner in Enugu organised by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Enugu West Senatorial District, to support the party’s candidates for various offices in the 2019 general elections.

They noted that unlike previously, Enugu was heading into a major election without crisis.

The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RICO Groups, Sir Eric Chime described both leaders as agents of peace, political stability, and good governance in Enugu State.

He observed that the synergy between the state government and the state’s federal lawmakers had translated to massive grassroots development in Enugu State.

He said: “The synergy and sincere brotherhood shared by Governor Ugwuanyi and Senator Ekweremadu has brought peace, unity, political stability and good governance to our State. Enugu State has witnessed purposeful, responsive leadership and massive infrastructural development, which have uplifted the living conditions of our people.

“This is exemplified in all sectors- economy; road infrastructures, water projects, health, education, among others. Our choice is to support them to continue the good work because we cannot change a winning team”.

Also speaking, the Zonal Chairman of the PDP in Enugu West Senatorial District, Ozo Okey Ozoani, said both men had given governance a human and for being youth and sport-friendly.

“I will not end this speech without mentioning the Governor’s impact in sports development, which has earned the Rangers International both the league title and the AITEO Cup in the last three years”.

“In the same vein, Senator Ekweremadu has also committed himself to sponsoring of the annual youth sports competition, which has also contributed immensely in enriching the Rangers International feeder team and development of various sports talents”.

The fund raising dinner witnessed a large turnout of friends and well-wishers, who called for support for PDP candidates in Enugu West Senatorial District and beyond.

Shocking Uproar, As Osinbajo Breaks Silence, Finally Opens Up On The Subsidy Controversy

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has finally broken his silence on the controversy currently trailing the removal of subsidy from fuel.

Nigerians have been lamenting following the announcement of the deregulation of the oil sector, which jerked the price of the product from N86 to N145 per litre.

Reacting to the development, the Vice President stated that the best thing that could happen to the nation was the bold step taken by the President to remove subsidy from the product.

In a statement issued on Friday, Osinbajo explained why the presidency decided to take the ‘harsh’ decision, which would eventually benefit Nigerians.

His statement reads in full:

“I have read the various observations about the fuel pricing regime and the attendant issues generated. All certainly have strong points.

“The most important issue of course is how to shield the poor from the worst effects of the policy. I will hopefully address that in another note.

“Permit me an explanation of the policy. First, the real issue is not a removal of subsidy. At $40 a barrel there isn’t much of a subsidy to remove.

“In any event, the President is probably one of the most convinced pro-subsidy advocates.

“What happened is as follows: our local consumption of fuel is almost entirely imported. The NNPC exchanges crude from its joint venture share to provide about 50% of local fuel consumption. The remaining 50% is imported by major and independent marketers.

“These marketers up until three months ago sourced their foreign exchange from the Central Bank of Nigeria at the official rate. However, since late last year, independent marketers have brought in little or no fuel because they have been unable to get foreign exchange from the CBN.

“The CBN simply did not have enough. (In April, oil earnings dipped to $550 million. The amount required for fuel importation alone is about $225million!).

 

“Meanwhile, NNPC tried to cover the 50% shortfall by dedicating more export crude for domestic consumption. Besides the short term depletion of the Federation Account, which is where the FG and States are paid from, and further cash-call debts pilling up, NNPC also lacked the capacity to distribute 100% of local consumption around the country. Previously, they were responsible for only about 50%. (Partly the reason for the lingering scarcity).

“We realised that we were left with only one option. This was to allow independent marketers and any Nigerian entity to source their own foreign exchange and import fuel. We expect that foreign exchange will be sourced at an average of about N285 to the dollar, (current interbank rate). They would then be restricted to selling at a price between N135 and N145 per litre.

“We expect that with competition, more private refineries, and NNPC refineries working at full capacity, prices will drop considerably. Our target is that by Q4 2018 we should be producing 70% of our fuel needs locally. At the moment even if all the refineries are working optimally they will produce just about 40% of our domestic fuel needs.

“You will notice that I have not mentioned other details of the PPRA cost template. I wanted to focus on the cost component largely responsible for the substantial rise, namely foreign exchange. This is therefore not a subsidy removal issue but a foreign exchange problem, in the face of dwindling earnings.”

Tragedy! APC Goes Into Massive Mourning As A Candle Blows Out

The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was thrown into mourning on Saturday as Mr. Tope Osatoyinbo, former Senior Special Assistant on Mobilisation to Kayode Fayemi,

suddenly died of cardiac arrest.
Osatoyinbo, who was a senior staff of the National Orientation Agency (NOA) before his demise, was Fayemi’s aide on mobilization in his first term in office between 2010 and 2014.

He later returned to NOA as a career officer after Fayemi lost the 2014 governorship election to Mr. Ayodele Fayose.

Osatoyinbo was said to have suffered attack at his residence at Omisanjana around 9pm on Friday and was rushed to Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital(EKSUTH) for medicare.

According to one of his political associates, the Ado Ekiti born NOA boss was aged 56 and was said to have lost his wife barely six months ago.

The State Director of NOA, Mr. Dayo Famosaya , who spoke with journalists in Ado Ekiti on Saturday , revealed that the deceased was at his duty post at his office located within the premises of Fayose estate along Ado-Afao road on Friday and exhibited.

Famosaya said: “He was at the office yesterday(Friday), because he was the next officer to me. He worked till around 4pm before we parted ways.

“Though before the close of work, he told me around 3.30pm that he wanted to attend the wedding ceremony of the daughter of the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adeyeye , which he did.

“Tope told me he would be attending the ceremony in company of few friends and he actually attended the function which took place at the palace.

“I called him around 9pm after he returned home and we discussed some issues. It saddened me to hear this morning that he was rushed to
EKSUTH yester night after suffered certain sudden ailment and died in the hospital”.

Famosaya described the death as shocking and devastating in view of the quality services the former NOA’s boss had put into building his career in the federal government agency.

Osatoyinbo’s body has been deposited at the EKSUTH morgue in Ado Ekiti metropolis.

Crisis! Aso Rock Unstable, As Group Sets To Tear Buhari’s Plan Apart

President Muhammadu Buhari’s plan to present the 2019 budget proposal to the Joint Session of the National Assembly on Wednesday may not be achieved.

This is because of a four-day warning strike to be embarked upon by the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN)

In a letter of notification sent to the leadership of the National Assembly on Friday, the association stated that all its members would stay at home for four days beginning from Monday.

The letter signed by the association’s chairman, Musa Bature Muhammed, reads:

“Sequel to our earlier notice of strike action as contained in the Communique dated 29th November 2018, the Congress of Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN), National Assembly Chapter, unanimously resolved at its emergency Congress held on 14th December, 2018 to embark on a 4-day warning strike commencing from Monday, 17th to 20th December, 2018.

“By this notice, be kindly Informed that the entire Members of PASAN shall stay off their respectlve duties on the above mentioned dates”

In a letter to the National Assembly leadership, President Buhari had last Thursday hinted that he would be at the National Assembly on Wednesday to present the 2019 budget proposal before the two houses of the National Assembly.

Buhari’s letter had read: “May I crave the kind indulgence of the House of Representatives to grant me the slot of 11 hours on Wednesday, 19th December, 2018 to formally present the 2019 appropriation bill in a joint session and lay before the NASS the 2019 budget proposal.”

I’m Nobody’s Spare Tyre, I Have My Roles, Osinbajo Speaks On Role As Vice President

Clarifying his position and effectiveness in the Buhari administration, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says he is not a spare tyre to the president, even as he emphasis his importance as number two man.

Osinbajo said this during the vice-presidential debate organised by the Nigerian Elections Debate Group (NEDG) and the Broadcasting Organisations of Nigeria (BON).

He said this differs from the constitution of other countries.

Asked how taking the job of the vice-president has been since he assumed office over three years, Osinbajo said the demand of the role has since increased his grey hair.

He, however, said despite the herculean nature of his job, it has also been rewarding.

“I am sure that those who know me quite well know that my hair was not this grey when I started out in 2015. So really, it has been tasking,” Osinbajo said.

“And it has also been an incredibly rewarding experience especially looking at it from the point of view of the ability to do the things that one wanted to do all along as an individual.

“The role is one where you are in many senses the chief adviser to the president of the country and possibly the one person that would represent him when when he is absent for a meeting and even when he is absent for a longer period.

“So there is a sense in which the role of the vice president is one that very closely mirrors the role of the president in very profound ways.

“But our vice-presidency is different from that of other countries. Because unlike other countries, even countries that have similar constitutions, our own constitution actually specifies role for the vice president. The vice president is the chairman of the national economic council…that is a constitutional role.

“In some senses, those who say the role of the vice president is like a spare tyre have it wrong because they are probably looking at other jurisdictions. In our jurisdiction, there are specific roles that the vice-president is entitled by law to perform.

“The vice president is also the chairman of the NCP, that is the national council of privatisation , the vice president is also statutory chairman over 22 parastatals and agencies and these are defined by law.

“That role is one that a good degree of trust is required between the president and the vice president. The role of the vice-president is one which also requires, I think, a great deal of patience because you may not always agree with the policies.”

I Will Be Fighting To The Finish, There Will Be No Stopping Buhari Gives Nigerians Another Christmas Promise

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday declared that the war against Boko Haram “is a fight to the finish”.

Buhari made the declaration while addressing the extraordinary summit of Heads of State and Government of the Lake Chad Basin Commission and Benin in Abuja.

The President lamented that the Boko Haram crisis had worsened the already bad situation in the Lake Chad region.

He lamented that the “Lake Chad region has suffered decades of neglect and poor infrastructural development.”

Stressing that the neglect has been worsened by Boko Haram attacks, Buhari called for cooperation from the leaders to tackle insurgency.

He stressed that “the time has come for the evil of Boko Haram to be brought to a definitive end.”

Buhari urged the leaders to “remain resolute and committed in our collective efforts at attaining peace as well as eradicating terrorism and violent extremism from the sub-region”.

“The time has come for the evil of Boko Haram to be brought to a definitive end.

“I am sure that this summit will take the right decisions in this regard. This is a fight to the finish. We must, and we will, by the grace of God, wipe out terrorism from our sub-region,” he said.

2019 Elections: Still The Best Team Around…Group Says Buhari/Osinbajo Still The Best Ever To Happen To Nigeria

A civil society organisation, the Patroitic Conscience for New Nigeria has commended the performance of the Vice President at the Vice Presidential Debate  which held yesterday in Abuja.

In a statement made available to newsmen and signed by its national coordinator, Salisu Mohammed Sani, the group stated that the Buhari/Osinbajo ticket remains the best option for Nigeria given the myriads of achievements the present administration has recorded in the past three years.

“From the performance of the vice president, it becomes obvious that Nigeria is indeed on the path to greatness when compared to the 16 inglorious years of PDP misrule that indeed set the country back donkey years.”

The statement further stated that for the PDP vice presidential candidate, Peter Obi to state that “Nigeria is in the current situation because of lack of jobs, and Atiku Abubakar is a man that could deliver on this and bring Nigeria out of the misery if elected” is most uncharitable and a clear indication that Peter Obi is either ignorant of the ignoble role Atiku Abubakar played in ruining the economy of Nigeria between 1999 – 2007 while he was vice president and head of the economic management team”

“For Peter Obi to assume that Atiku Abubakar can deliver and bring Nigeria out of its economic misery is nothing but an indication that history is indeed in short supply and how gullible he thinks Nigerians are. This is on the heels that Nigerians are in the know of the atrocities committed against Nigeria by Atiku Abubakar who as head of the Economic management team enriched his pocket and that of his cronies.”

“Peter Obi would want to tell Nigerians why former president Olusegun Obasanjo fell out with Atiku Abubakar between 2003 and 2007 when he, Obasanjo realized how Atiku Abubakar abused the trust reposed on him by engaging in acts inimical to the progress of Nigeria. Perhaps the recent statement by former president Olusegun Obasanjo that “If I support Atiku for a political office other than the one I supported him in the past when I did not know him, maybe, but not now that I know him, God will not forgive me.”

“To, therefore, imagine that the same man who is renowned for questionable means and was in power for eight years in now suddenly the messiah that Nigeria needs beats common sense. It goes further to corroborate the fact the Atiku/Obi ticket is not in tandem with present realities either by omission or commission which the true enemies of Nigeria are. This debate has indeed confirmed the true motives of the agents of the PDP that sees Nigeria as their cash cow that must be milked to death, to say the least.”

The Patriotic Conscience for New Nigeria reiterated the need for Nigerians to look beyond the deceitful product that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is trying to sell to members of the unsuspecting public. “A leopard cannot change its skin. The worst years in the annals Nigeria were from 1999 to 2015, and this much can be verified by the discerning mind and those that have the interest of the country at heart.”

“Since 2015, when President Muhammadu Buhari assumed leadership of the country, Nigeria has witnessed phenomenal growth and development. This much was corroborated by the brilliant outing of vice president Yemi Osinbajo in the vice presidential debate where he reeled out the numerous achievements of the Muhammadu Buhari led administration. For instance, Nigeria’s SMEs have grown consistently since the administration came on board, with several policies specifically targeted at SMEs at several institutions currently underway.”

“We are therefore not surprised with the illogical postulations of Peter Obi whose history is akin to that of a salesman who would go the extra mile to sell a product to members of the unsuspecting public to make ends meet not minding whose ox is gored. But Nigerians are wiser and not fooled by the antics of “businessmen” who see things from the prism of their selfish interest.”

“The Patriotic Conscience for New Nigeria is of the opinion that the Buhari/Osinbajo ticket is in the interest of Nigeria and capable of leading Nigeria to the promised land and the best option for 2019.”
