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.”

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.”

PDP Gov Goes On A Rampage, Executes Shocking Decision

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has sacked the Board Chairman of the Ebonyi Broadcasting Corporation (EBBC), Mrs Patience Ogodo.

Mr Emmanuel Uzor, Umahi’s Chief Press Secretary, who issued a statement to NAN on Saturday, said that the sack was sequel to Ogodo’s suspension as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees.
Uzor alleged that PDP’s National Executive Committee (NEC) had suspended Ogodo for acts inconsistent with her mandate which included: absenteeism and other anti-party activities.

”Consequently, Ogodo is directed to hand over all government properties in her possession within 24 hours to the closet person on the board.
”The governor wishes to stress that Ogodo’s suspension was in affirmation of the PDP’s NEC which tried and found her guilty of anti- party activities and other sundry actions.

”This was unbecoming of a board of trustees member from a highly disciplined party like the PDP as it acted in line with the party’s constitution,” the statement read.

The statement further stated that the governor wished her well in her new political journey.

Umahi entered public service in 2007 as the acting chairman of the Ebonyi State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party. From 2009 to 2011, he served as state chairman of the party. During that term, he served a year on the governing board of the Federal Medical Centre in Asaba as its chairman.

In 2011, Umahi became deputy governor of Ebonyi State on a ticket with Martin Elechi. In 2014, Governor Elechi supported Onyebuchi Chukwu, Minister of Health, as his successor, which Umahi stated violated an understanding that he would take that role. Umahi defeated Chukwu in the primaries. The remainder of Elechi’s term was chaotic, with arson hitting the House of Assembly in February 2015 and motions taken to impeach him later that month over alleged unconstitutional gross misconduct, misappropriation of funds and anti-party activities.

Umahi was elected to the role of Governor on 12 April 2015 in an election that has been challenged by the Labour Party, All Progressives Congress and All Progressives Grand Alliance on the basis of “widespread irregularities, killings, and wanton destruction of property”. In October 2015, the legitimacy of the election was upheld by the Governorship Election Tribunal.

All Round Pandemonium In Dunamis Church, As El Rufai Burns Paul Eneche In A Most Terrible Way!

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has threatened to ‘get’ Dr. Paul Enenche, the Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre (DIGC), over an alleged incitement.

El-Rufai said this on Thursday when Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, paid him a visit in Kaduna.

The governor was reacting to a recent message by Enenche where he blasted El-Rufai for not doing enough to end the killings in Kaduna State.

He said, “The recent crisis we had in Kaduna metropolis in Kasuwan Mageni was largely as a result of hate speech. The second round of crisis was because rumours started circulating that the abducted chief of Agada had been killed and within an hour 22 people were killed and it was totally false,” he said.

“By the time you create a lie like the case of these 22 people, consequences will follow. Even though the ransom was paid and he was freed, before he got to the road, the kidnappers shot and killed him.

“What was the story? The story circulating was that I invited the chief to a meeting and told him that his chiefdom will become an emirate and he disagreed with me and when he was abducted, it was implied that I arranged the abduction. This is what started the crisis and it is totally false.

“I have never invited any chief except when they write to see me. I can depose him. Why will I threaten him? I can abolish his chiefdom or emirate under the law. But this was the story circulating and it raised tension and many people were killed. The programme you launched against fake news is commendable and should be sustained.


“There was a clip going round, a pastor in Abuja that said I was the one that arranged the abduction and murder of the agom of Kachia. I have filed a complaint to the IG. We intend to bring him to Kaduna to try him.

“The clip was circulated in Kaduna and he is in Abuja, we will get him. We know the agents of this kind of careless statements and what is most unfortunate is that the guiltiest are people that we assume should be responsible, pastors, imams and very important people in the society.”

He described fake news and hate speech as fundamental problems confronting the society.

“It is not only the president that was said to be cloned. I am also someone from Mali. Somebody went to my Wikipedia page and changed my birthplace to Bamako, Mali. That the real el-Rufai died when he went on exile in 2009,” the governor said.


“These things are becoming common, you have a whole range of gullible people. We must do something otherwise we are all in danger.”

Election Debate! Fayose Speaks, Gives Shocking Take On The Participants

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has commended the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Vice Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, for demonstrating a high level of understanding of issues relating to the economy at the Vice Presidential debate which held in Abuja on Friday.

It was reported that on Friday night, five candidates contesting for the vice presidency, engaged in a debate.

Those who participated were, Yemi Osinbajo (APC) Peter Obi (PDP) Umma Getso (YPP) Alhaji Abdulganiyu Galadima (ACPN) Khadijah Abdullahi-Iya (ANN)

Their responses and opinions drew mixed reactions from Nigerians.

Reacting, Fayose on his official Twitter Page wrote, “Delighted that our VP candidate, Peter Obi demonstrated high level of understanding of issues relating to the economy of this country.

“In PDP, we have brains in abundance, while in the other party, they have lies in abundance. We will surely get Nigeria working again.”

Fayose became the second governor of Ekiti on 29th Of May, 2003, after defeating the then incumbent Governor Niyi Adebayo in the gubernatorial elections. Fayose could not complete his tenure as a result of an impeachment on 16th Of October, 2006.

During the 2014 Governorship election in Ekiti State, Peter Ayodele Fayose was again the PDP nominee. He won the election and was declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission as the new Governor of Ekiti State; he was inaugurated on 16th Of October, 2014. Fayose is now the only Nigerian to defeat an incumbent two times.

Fayose has publicly declared his intentions to run for president in Nigerian general election, 2019. Though his party, The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has admonished the Governor, against his ambition to be the party’s presidential candidate in 2019 but has recently withdrawn his quest.

An army intelligence officer Captain Sagir Koli of the Nigerian Army 32nd Artillery Brigade, secretly recorded a vote-rigging plan on June 20th, 2014 when he was asked to accompany his then commanding Officer, Brigadier General Aliyu Momoh, to a meeting at Spotless Hotel in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State.

The 37-minute audio recording was attended by the eventual “winner” of the election, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State; Senator Iyiola Omisore of Osun State; a member of the National Assembly Abdul Kareem; the Minister for Police Affairs Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan; the former Minister for Police Affairs and navy captain Caleb Olubolade; the Minister of State for Defense Senator Musiliu Obanikoro and PDP Anambra chieftain and failed senate candidate Chris Uba, as they bribed army Brigadier General Momoh with a rank promotion for his assistance in carrying out election fraud in Ekiti State.

A Great Fall Is Coming! APC’s Ajimobi And Other Strong God Fathers Make A Shocking Revelation

Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State on Friday declared that opposition political parties in the state were doomed for failure and are bound to lose the forthcoming general elections because they are in disarray.

Ajimobi made this declaration during the flag off of the campaign of the gubernatorial candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Adebayo Adelabu held at the Oke-Ado state secretariat of the party in Ibadan, the state capital.

In attendance were the deputy governor, Mr Moses Adeyemo, APC Chairman, Chief Akin Oke, Senator Fatai Buhari representing Oyo North among others.

Ajimobi while speaking, said that there were many reasons the APC will replicate its 2015 victory across the state in the 2019 election.

He pointed that there were three major signs that showed that opposition parties were bound to lose in the forthcoming elections.

Some of the signs, he said, were the fact that just like in 2015, all other parties challenging the ruling APC were in disarray.

According to Ajimobi, opposition parties were doomed for failure from the outset owing to their lack of a cohesive front, various misunderstandings among their members and instability.

He added that evidences that God was with him and the APC was the fact that the opposition political parties was in disarray.

Ajimobi while speaking further, remarked that the APC will ride on the divisions among the opposition parties.

He added that he was also sure for Adelabu because he had a traceable and renowned family history, noting that the family house of several other governorship candidates, especially those from Ibadan, could not be traced.

Igbo Connection! Atiku Exposes Buhari’s Desperate Moves To Win Election

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has cautioned the people of the South-East against allowing themselves to be deceived by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress, APC, that they would produce the next president in 2023.

Abubakar said the claim that the region will produce the President in 2023 if they support Buhari’s re-election bid, was a pack of deception.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Boss Mustapha had said the South-East will produce the next President if they support Buhari in 2019.

But speaking through his campaign spokesperson, Segun Sowunmi, in an interview with Independent, the Waziri of Adamawa said Buhari and his party had demonstrated over the years that they don’t keep to their promises.

He said, “A man that cannot be trusted on simple things, is it that man that will be relied upon to fulfil a promise he made now in 2023?

“In one breath, the presidency is deceiving them that it will go there in 2023 if they support Buhari now; in another breath, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, is telling them that it will go to the South-West in 2023. Nigerians are wiser than that.

“The Igbos are more intelligent than they think. What the people of the South-East needs is equal access to the play.

“Atiku has given them that equal access by giving them the vice president slot in the person of Peter Obi.

“Definitely, if he does well, there is every opportunity for anybody from the South-East to be president, and he will be supported.

“What is important is that we restructure Nigeria so that people will not be killing themselves because of the presidency, but they will go and deliver value where people need it most which is the local government and the state.

“Nigeria under Atiku is going to grant autonomy to local governments.

“They will get their funding directly and they will be able to do more for themselves.

“States will be encouraged to generate more monies for themselves and they will be given more powers to do a whole lot more, especially in growing the economy and their IGR.

“We have gone past the rhetoric of we are going to give presidency to a region in 2023 or not.

“The same Buhari who said he is going to do one term, why can’t he say he is not seeking re-election but will give the ticket to an Igbo man if he is that sincere?

“Somebody who reneges on his statement that he will only do one term, is that the one who will now promise the Igbos presidency and they will believe him?

“The Igbos know their friends and the friends of the Igbos know the Igbos,” he declared.
