2023: Forget About Winning In Lagos, APC Tells PDP

Published

on

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State has described as ‘ridiculous and daydream’, the thoughts that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will win the state in the 2023 general elections.

The Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Seye Oladejo, who said this in a statement on Monday in Lagos, explained that the PDP’s victory in Osun governorship election on Saturday, could not be repeated in Lagos.

Oladejo said: “Our attention has been drawn to the naive and infantile response of the Lagos state PDP gubernatorial candidate, Jide Adediran, to the outcome of the recently held Osun state governorship election.

“While we acknowledge the right to celebrate an unexpected, opportunistic and unaccustomed euphoria, as a result of the election, the excitement was taken to a ridiculous level by day-dreaming of winning the governorship election in Lagos State.”

He said the opposition party should not equate the forthcoming 2023 governorship election in Lagos, with the PDP primaries.

According to him, the PDP’s governorship ticket given Dr Olajide Adediran, popularly called ‘Jandor’ and the ace Nollywood Actress, Funke Akindele, cannot add value to PDP.

Oladejo added: “The governance of a model state like Lagos is too important to be entrusted to some daydreamers, who have absolutely nothing to offer.

“While Lagos residents celebrate the landmark and award-winning achievements of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu across various sectors with focus on the THEMES mantra, your hope to win the election can only be a mirage.

“It is certainly unnatural for the civilised and cosmopolitan citizens of Lagos to be tired of the various developmental strides, and the prospects of doing more in the years ahead.

“As we count down to the elections, the governorship/ deputy governorship debates will be an interesting spectacle.”

According to him, while the incumbents will “gleefully reel out monumental achievements in office, the opposition will play to its strength with the characteristic comedy of errors”.

“We urge Mr. Governor to remain undaunted as he strives to finish strong in the first term of his tenure of office,” the APC Spokesman said.

2023: No State Or Community Will Be Left Behind If I’m Elected President, Peter Obi Assures Nigerians

Published

on

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has promised that no state or community will be left behind in moving Nigeria forward.

He noted that if elected, his administration will tweak the security architecture, which will entail reform of security and governance. “We will restructure, re-equip and reorient the Nigerian Police: This will include 3 levels of policing- federal, state, and community,” he said.

Peter Obi disclosed this in his speech at Harvard University.

Obi said he will ensure that in moving Nigeria forward, no state or community will be left behind. Pursuant to its statutory responsibility to protect, our government will promote equity in power and resource sharing.

“The federating units will enjoy discernible autonomy. Resources will also be shared equitably. A higher derivation paid to oil or solid minerals-producing states will not be tantamount to other states not receiving federal allocations that should keep them viable.

“We will tweak the security architecture, which will entail reform of the security sector and governance. We will restructure, re-equip and reorient the Nigerian Police: This will include 3 levels of policing- federal, state, and community.

“We will build a compact, robust and ready mobile police force with rapid response deployment capabilities; and legislate the establishment of state police based on community policing. We will raise the population-to-police officer ratio to a higher level” he added.

On Nigeria’s role in Africa and insecurity, he added that we must think seriously about a leadership that is imbued with competence, capacity, credibility, and commitment. Accordingly, we will pursue intangible assets of good governance, rule of law, and the security of lives and properties.

He added his administration will ensure that they have these assets in place and stress asset optimization.

“We will strike a strategic balance that allows us to promote and protect national interest while meeting our ECOWAS obligations.

“We will rebuild Nigeria’s military power, promote economic growth, and enhance its technological prowess with a view to improving Nigeria’s diplomatic influence in sub-regional, regional and global affairs.

He added that restoring leadership will require that we reassert proactively, Nigeria’s leadership role in African affairs through constructive engagement, peacekeeping duties, and using existing sub-regional and regional forums as well as bilateral platforms for dialogue on current and emerging challenges. We will continue to enhance our sphere of influence via peacekeeping, and trade and investment initiatives.

Peter Obi Not Subject Of Soludo’s Meeting With APGA – Aide

Published

on

Anambra State Governor, Charles Soludo, has debunked reports suggesting that he ordered members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to work against the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi in the 2023 general elections.

In a statement, the Press Secretary to the Governor, Christian Aburime, denied the allegation, describing it as the handwork of faceless individuals. He said the immediate past governor of Anambra State was not a subject of the meeting with APGA members.

“The following should, however, be noted: Governor Chukwuma Soludo, CFR, only held a private meeting with his party members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA). This meeting is a routine gathering where issues concerning APGA are discussed,” the statement read.

“At no time during the meeting was Mr Peter Obi, a point of discourse. It is pertinent to note that issues discussed at the meeting were purely issues relating to APGA affairs.”

The governor also asked Anambra residents and the general public to completely ignore and disregard the publication in all its entirety.

See the full statement issued below:

Re: Soludo charges Anambra APGA to Work Against Peter Obi, dreams of Presidency after Atiku

We note with disdain the fallacious and distasteful publication of a write-up with the above heading by a faceless individual(s).

We would have chosen to ignore this mischievous and utterly despicable publication, but for the benefit of a few innocent Ndi Anambra who could be misinformed by the write-up.

The following should, however, be noted:

1) That Governor Chukwuma Soludo, CFR, only held a private meeting with his party members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA). This meeting is a routine gathering where issues concerning APGA are discussed.

At no time during the meeting was Mr Peter Obi, a point of discourse.
It is pertinent to note that issues discussed at the meeting were purely issues relating to APGA affairs
We, therefore, urge Ndi-Anambra and members of the general public to completely ignore and disregard the publication in all its entirety
