Saraki Thief, PDP Thief – Crowd Chants As Oshiomhole Leads Song Against Saraki During APC Rally

On Wednesday, The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomole led a song that was filled with chants of ‘thief’ against the Senate President Bukola  Saraki a former member of the Party until he defected back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

During his speech at the APC presidential rally in Lokoja, capital of Kogi State, Oshiomhole appeared to be set on a lengthy dig at Atiku, only for him to switch to Saraki in a flash.

“I challenge Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of PDP. We will publish the record. In his election in 20011, Atiku lost in Adamawa; he lost all the three senatorial seats,” he began, before going on to explain how three senators lost an election in 2015 only for Atiku to insist otherwise.

“President Obasanjo called me; I was in Labour; I was the real opposition. And he said, ‘listen, now listen, o ti to (it is enough)… ole, ole (theft, theft) will kill you. My own comrade, I need you to say… because when they talk of rigging and manipulation, they are the sustenance of rigging.

“One of the losers wrote a congratulatory letter to the man who won, but because Atiku felt, how can he be Vice-President and he lost his own state, he paid N100 million each to those who won for them to accept defeat. That is how those who lost, they smuggled them into victory; those who won, they paid them to accept defeat.

“Is that a man who will speak of honesty? Is that a man who can speak to integrity? Is that a man who can speak to character?

“Atiku wants to become Chairman of INEC, his Vice President wants to become Inspector General of Police. Their campaign Director-General is the man who presided over the liquidation of Societe Generale Bank after they had collected the deposits of very poor people. Bukola Saraki.”

At this point the crowd chanted ole (thief).

Oshiomhole joined in, saying: “Bukola Saraki, ole (thief).”

Oshiomhole then broke into a song during which he chants “Bukola Saraki” and the crowd respond with “ole” (thief).

At some point, he mixed it with “PDP”, to which the crowd also responded with “ole” (thief).

Okorocha’s APC Camp Ambushes Oshiomhole And Did This To Him Over Moves To Suspend The Governor

The ruling party in Imo State has moved to seek legal challenge against the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

The Imo State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress,APC, filed a contempt suit against  Oshiomhole. At a Press conference in Owerri, the Imo State capital on Wednesday, the APC chairman in the state, Daniel Nwafor, said the contempt suit was filed at the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Nwafor, who accused Oshiomhole of “working against the success of the party,”  urged President Muhammadu Buhari to “watch the national chairman closely.” He said that the contempt suit was filed in order to checkmate the “undemocratic and illegal activities” of the former governor of Edo State.

Nwafor said that Oshiomhole had no power, morally or legally, to “arbitrarily dissolve ” duly elected APC executive in Imo State, after which a caretaker committee was appointed.He said that the action was contemptuous in the sense that there was an existing court judgment which barred Oshiomhole from doing so.

Nwafor said,  “We have filed a contempt suit against Mr. Adams Oshiomhole. It is at the Federal High Court, Abuja.”In the days to come, we will publish it in the national newspapers for the world to read.We have said that President Muhammadu Buhari should watch Mr. Adams Oshiomhole closely. The National Chairman had no powers to arbitrarily dissolve a duly elected APC executive in Imo State and to appoint a purported caretaker committee.”

Nwafor also informed that the APC in the state under his leadership had suspended the “Purported caretaker committee” chairman, Marcellinus Nlemigbo and the members of his committee.

He alleged that Nlemigbo had “engaged in anti-party activities” and had not attended APC meeting in his Ezinihitte Ward in Mbaitoli Local Government Area in the last one year.

Describing the caretaker committee chairman and his members as “impostors,” Nwafor said that he would not be distracted, noting that the suspension was “indefinite.”

He said that despite the crisis in the party, APC would win in the state. According to him, the caretaker committee has no powers to summon the state governor, Rochas Okorocha and five others to appear before a “purported disciplinary committee.” He said that he remains the only person in the state who has the powers to set up a disciplinary committee and to ask anyone to appear before it.

APC IN TOP CRISIS! See How Comrade Oshiomhole Pounced At Party Chieftain

There appears to be a serious crack in the wall of the ruling party as signs have emerged to that effect.

This came as the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, lashed out at a chieftain of the party in Abia, Chief Ikechi Emenike, over his alleged romance with the Peoples Democratic Party-led administration.

He alleged that Emenike was being sponsored by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu and the PDP to cause confusion in the party, thereby weakening the chances of APC in the forthcoming 2019 general elections in the state. Emenike had on several occasions claimed to be the authentic gubernatorial candidate of APC in Abia, which the national leadership of the party frowned at.

Oshiomhole, who made this known, in his speech during the flag-off of the Abia APC Governorship Campaign held in Umuahia, the state capital, vowed to resist what it termed as evil machination of Emenike to sabotage the party leadership ahead of the March governorship election in the state.

In the words of the APC National Chairman, “Ikechi Emenike is APC in the day and PDP at night. He betrayed me in the secret and I will betray him in public. You can’t be holding broom in the day and be visiting the PDP governor at night collecting money from Ikpeazu to make sure you keep APC busy in court. “I am Adams Oshomhole, I will make sure Emenike did not see the light of the day in politics. No reasonable APC member will complain the type of primaries we conducted in Abia state. We conducted direct primaries, which Dr Uche Ogah won. And I assure all of you Uche Ogah is the next governor of Abia state”.

In the same vein, the Abia state chapter of the All Progressives Congress(APC), has restated that the suspension of Chief Ikechi Emenike, from the party, still stands. The publicity secretary of APC in the state, Comrade Benedict Godson, who made this known in an interview with newsmen on Monday, frowned at the anti-party activities of the party chieftain (Emenike).

But the media Aide to Ikechi Emenike, Mr. Mike Ozoemena, in a chat with newsmen in Umuahia, dismissed the purported suspension.

He said, “My principal remains a high ranking member of APC both in Abia state and Nigeria as a whole.

“He has never, and will never engage in any activity that may mar the chances of APC in the upcoming governorship election in the state. So, he means well for the party. Godson and co lacks power to suspend him.”

Ikechi Emenike is yet to react to this latest accusation against him.

Outburst! PDP Are People Deceiving People They Will Never Rule Nigeria Again, Oshiomhole Declares

Former labour leader and the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress(APC), Adams Oshiomhole has disclosed that the  Peoples Democratic Party,PDP, deceived the people of the South East region for 16 years the party ruled Nigeria from 1999 to 2015. Oshiomhole who stated this in Umuahia, Abia State during the flag off of the campaign of the APC governorship candidate Dr. Uche Ogah alleged that the basic problems the South East was caused by the deceit of the PDP. He urged Ndigbo to vote President Muhammadu Buhari and make the state’s contingent to federal government stronger by voting in Dr. Orji Uzor-Kalu, Sen. Nkechi Nwaogu and Chief Sir Marc Wabara for Abia North, Abia Central and Abia South senatorial positions.

“The philosophy of the PDP is ‘People Deceiving People.’ No part of Nigeria has remained more loyal to the PDP than the South East States. You’ve voted for them for over 16 years or they rigged themselves in. All they keep doing is deceit.“My friend and brother, who is the immediate past president of this country, Goodluck Jonathan, whenever he’s coming to the South East his name changes from Jonathan to Azikiwe with Ebele. The aim was simply to deceive the Igboman. Why will I change my name because of politics? We are not chameleons. We want to be known for what we are.“With PDP in power, the People of South East and South South suffered so much every year of celebration at Old Niger Bridge. Population has tripled, but road network remains same. At the eve of every election, the PDP will do a groundbreaking of second Niger Bridge. Each time they break the bridge, the ground became even weaker. Today, president Buhari without changing his name to Azikiwe has already started delivering the vision of the Zikis by constructing the second Niger Bridge.

“To PDP it is many years for the liars, 2019 for the people of truth. I’ve had you say you don’t have light; the PDP has questions to answer. But you can pay them back by switching their lights in the forthcoming elections. Just look at the way the PDP privatized power; they shared it to discos of their brothers and sisters. They signed agreement for 20 years making it difficult for any government to change the backyard contract they signed. The APC national chairman called Abia people to vote Ogah for governor and explained that with him as governor and Buhari as president, every obstacle to sustainable power supply in Nigeria would be removed.

Oshiomhole Raises Fresh Suspicion As He Reveals Where Election Results Will Come From For The Party

Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has revealed where elections are actually decided as the race for the general elections gets fiercer.

 

The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), stated that the party’s campaigns  are ongoing in states of the federation. He added that elections are not decided in Abuja. Oshiomhole made this comment yesterday while giving reasons why  governors elected on the platform of the party were absent at the inaugural meeting of the APC Presidential Campaign Council.

The governors, who are members and also state coordinators of the presidential campaign council, were all absent at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, yesterday. Speaking  to State House correspondents at the end of the meeting, Oshiomhole said the governors were busy coordinating activities in their states. “It is because they are governors; they are governing their states. Don’t forget that elections are not defined in Abuja; they will take place in the 36 states . “I’m assuring you (that) there are APC members who are campaigning for the House of Assembly, various federal House of Representatives and Senate constituencies, governorship constituencies.

So it will not be helpful to bring them to Abuja.” He explained that the meeting was about policies which would be consummated and translated into practice across the 36 states, 774 local governments and awards across the country. “The key issue was to go through the programme  of activities, calendar of campaigns, various interest groups within the country, the business community, the youths, women, people with disabilities and various special interest groups.

 

Oshiomhole further stated, “The whole country is Mr President’s constituency, so he will have to visit each of the 36 states with appropriate messages, reminding people always. You know, people in the country today , given the challenges of survival, tend to forget where we are coming from; they just look at where we are. “There is a saying that except you know and remember where you are coming from, you cannot appreciate where you are.

Even in the life of a man, those who look at those in their front will never thank God enough but when you look at your back and see those behind, then you will appreciate that you have made a lot of progress.” The APC national chairman insisted that the ruling party has “to constantly remind Nigerians of what happened in the last 16 years and what has changed over the past three and a half years, and what will change even more over the next four years, if given the mandate to continue and consolidate.”

In his address, President Muhammadu Buhari expressed confidence that the ruling party would win the forthcoming general elections. According to him, the main objective of the meeting was to serve as the forum for collective decision-making to enhance the effectiveness of the campaign effort. Buhari appealed to the members of the presidential campaign council to commit themselves to the task at hand. “There is no doubt that victory is with us: it is ours, but that shouldn’t mean we should rest even for a moment.

Even though we are confident of winning, I urge you to work as hard as you can so that we can maximise the scale and extent of our victory. “I urge you to rise to the challenge of the great expectations this party and Nigerians have for you and the confidence that I personally have in the ability of all of you to deliver,”  the president said. He further explained that the agenda for the meeting was to consider and approve the structure and operational modalities of the Presidential Campaign Council.

Oshiomhole reveals why all governors shunned Buhari’s campaign meeting

National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole has given the reason why all the 24 governors elected on the platform of the party failed to show at the inaugural meeting of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s Presidential Campaign Council, PCC.

Speaking with State House correspondents after the meeting, Oshiomhole said that the governors were absent because they stayed back to govern their states.

He said: “Because they are governors, they are governing their states.

“Don’t forget that elections are not defined in Abuja; it will take place in the 36 states and I am sure there are APC members who are campaigning for the House of Assembly, House of Representatives and Senate constituencies, governorship constituencies. So, it will not be helpful to bring them to Abuja. Here, it is about policies, it will be consummated and translated to practice across the 36 states, 774 local government areas and awards.”

Oshiomhole also stated that President Buhari will visit the 36 states because the entire country is his constituency.

Oshiomhole said: “The whole country is Mr. President’s constituency. So, he will have to visit each of the 36 states with appropriate message, reminding people always. You know in the country today , given the challenges of survival, people tend to forget where we are coming from they just look at where we are.

“Even in the life of a man those who look at those in their front will never thank God enough but when you look at your back and see those behind then you will appreciate that you have made a lot of progress.

“So, you need to constantly remind Nigerians of what happened in the last 16 years and what has changed over the past three and half years, and what will change even more over the next four years, if given the mandate to continue and consolidate.

“You know that the business of construction is even much more challenging than when you are building a complete new house,” Oshiomhole said.

$16 Billion Power Project, Oshiomhole Tasks Anti Graft Agency To Ruthlessly Deal With Atiku, Obasanjo

Adams Oshiomhole, Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has called for the probe of former President Olusegun Obasanjo and ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar tenure for allegedly spending $16 billion on power in the country with no proof that such money was spent on electricity generation.

Oshiomhole, who was the guest of honour at the flag-off of Governor Simon Lalong’s re-election campaign at Jos Township Stadium, said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) 16 years in power was a waste alleging  that Nigerians became poorer under Obasanjo regime and Goodluck Jonathan  as a result of  their failure  to put the interests of Nigerians first before any other considerations.

He accused PDP Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar of heading  the privatisation of federal government organisations under President Obasanjo eight years in power during which thousands of workers lost their jobs while few top government officials allegedly took away federal owned companies at a give-away price.

Obasanjo

According to the APC national chairman while President Buhari can travel to any country of the world, Atiku Abubakar could only afford to travel to Dubai because of fear of being quizzed by foreign security agencies.

He urged Plateau people to come out en mass in February and the month of March to vote for President Buhari  and  Governor Lalong to be re-elected as president and governor respectively at the federal and state levels of government.

Governor Lalong on his part said he has no opponent  on the Plateau because  his main challenger  Senator Jeremiah Useni  is not his match in politics, saying  PDP is dead on the Plateau now that Ambassador Chris Giwa  has  left the party to join APC in the state.

Furthermore, During the re-election campaign, some political parties in the state endorsed Governor Lalong as their candidate for  2019 governorship election.

In this light, Oshiomhole Calls For Probe Of Obasanjo,  However, report of the  Presidential Review Panel on the NIPP set up by the National Economic Council (NEC) said  as at 2007, “total project allocations/estimates for NIPP” amounted to $10.231 billion, including the $2 billion Federal Government counterpart funding for Mambilla Hydro Power project and $1.4 billion for additional nine turbines.

According to the then Governor of Benue State, Mr. Gabriel Suswam, who made the presentation of the panel’s report, “ out of these commitments, only $3.08 billion was funded and scrutinised with advance payment guarantees from “first class” Nigerian banks and Letters of Credits issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

The Plight Of Nigerians! What Obasanjo Did To Prevent Stable Electricity In Nigeria

All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, has lambasted former President Olusegun Obasanjo for his failure to fix the country’s power sector after supposedly spending $16 billion on it.

He said should President Muhammadu Buhari decide to probe the power sector that Obasanjo would not escape prosecution.

He also attacked the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, over comments on the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

He said that if given the opportunity that Atiku will sell the country, adding that Nigerians should not vote for him in the coming presidential elections.

Oshiomhole, a former governor of Edo State who was recently accused of collecting bribes in dollars during APC primary elections stated this in Jos, the Plateau State capital at the opening of Governor Simon Lalong’s reelection campaign at the Rwang Pam  Stadium.

According to him, “Obasanjo said in 1999 that if he was elected President with his Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, he would fix the power sector in six months and that there would be electricity supply all over Nigeria. Many years later, we realized what he meant.

“He and his Vice-President spent $16bn on power sector, after eight years there was more darkness in Nigeria than when they assumed office. So when President Muhammadu Buhari took over in 2015, he asked a question: where is the power? If Mr President pursues the answer to that question to its logical conclusion, he must put Obasanjo on trial.

“Atiku is from the customs and (Peter) Obi is a trader. Their ticket is part of Obasanjo’s PDP. They can never change their colours.  Already, Atiku has said he would sell the NNPC if elected. If given the chance, I’m sure he would sell the country. So, Nigerians should not vote them during the next election,” Oshiomhole said.
