Gbadamosi, who disclosed this in a statement on Friday in Lagos, declared his support for LP presidential flagbearer, Peter Obi.

The statement read in part, “The exit of Peter Obi from the PDP and his subsequent emergence as the Presidential candidate of the LP, and his brilliant choice of Mallam Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed as running mate have rekindled my hope.

“I hereby publicly declare my resignation from the PDP and wish all the remaining members well.”

He added, “By the same token, I also hereby publicly declare my support for the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.”

2023: He’ll Overcome Tinubu Without Spending N50bn, Peter Obi’s Camp Replies Fayose’s Brother

Published

on

The camp of Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi has informed Isaac Fayose that he is living in the past.

The brother of ex-Ekiti governor Ayo Fayose had stated that Obi would need N50billion to defeat Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a rejoinder on Wednesday, the LP flagbearer’s media office said those obsessed with structure and money politics are refusing to face the reality.

It said that what is required is not N50 billion or “procured structure”, but human beings who are the victims of the previous “so-called structures”.

“The Obedient Movement is powered by human beings as represented in the Labour Party logo – Father, Mother and Child – not money. Human beings are far more bigger resources.”

The office drew Fayose’s attention to the Kenya presidential election where 55-year-old William Ruto of the young United Democratic Alliance defeated 77-year-old Raila Odinga of the Orange Democratic Movement formed in 2005.

The statement noted that Ruto’s party has no member in the Senate of 67 lawmakers, and only one member in the 349-member Assembly.

“Odinga’s party has 20 members in the 67-member Senate and 76 of 349 Assembly members but these structures could not deliver him above the rookie party of Ruto.


“Ruto had human beings and social media structure behind him while Odinga had the support of the ruling party, backing of the President and government of Kenya, their entire structures and money.”

Obi’s camp said the huge lesson from Kenya should prove to Fayose and all those thinking like him that “age is a factor, money is not; social media is a factor and structure is not”.

The media office added that the LP candidate and his running mate Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed are on a mission to dismantle political structures that have held Nigeria down over time.

2023: PDP Engaging In Propaganda To Discredit APC, Says Adamu

Published

on

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdulahi Adamu, has lamented that the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is engaging in propaganda to discredit the ruling party ahead of the 2023 elections.

Adamu stated this Tuesday when a group of APC Professionals led by former Governor of Bauchi state, Isa Yuguda, visited him at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja.

Adamu decried that most of the programmes of the APC-led administration were not getting to the grassroots because leadership at that level was driven by those who are not educated.

His words: “One thing which I want to make some reference to is the fact of the position of your forum itself. If you listen to our political activities, one thing you may wish to take a serious look at and see how best you can be of some assistance to our effort is the activity of the party at the grassroots where it mattered most.


“Leadership at this level is being driven by those who are not educated, they are very vulnerable, very, extremely vulnerable.

“So, we need to imbibe the culture of an enlightened leadership driven by knowledge. We don’t all have to be graduates or diploma holders, but an enlightened mind is open and it is a bit narrow for now. This is missing in our effort to get people to appreciate who we are as a party, what we are doing as a party, how we can be appreciated as a party


“We are having the misfortune of the effort of this government not getting to the grassroots – positive publicity of what this government is doing. All that those who care to talk want to say is about the negative aspect of government

“We know that all over the world,the opposition is seen as the underdog and so there is apparent sympathy for them. I have no quarrel with this. Go and sympathize with them but call a spade a spade. Don’t give a dog a bad name in order to hang it.

“This is what we are experiencing. This is what we are experiencing. All the good things that have happened thus far in this administration have not received the kind of publicity it deserves.”

Why Wike Must Apologise To Amaechi -HURIWA

Published

on

Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has told the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike to apologise to his predecessor and former boss, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi.


HURIWA said Wike should apologise to the former Minister of Transportation for what it described as needless political war of vendetta to Amaechi, who entrusted key offices to him whilst he (Amaechi) served as Governor.

On September 14, 2015, Wike had vowed to implement the recommendations of the judicial commission of inquiry probing the sale of the State’s valued assets by the Amaechi administration.

Also, the Justice George Omereji seven-man commission of inquiry concluded its proceeding on the matter over the weekend, warning that the former Minister and some members of his administration who shunned the panel should be prepared to bear the consequences of their action.


HURIWA accused the Commission of reaching predetermined conclusions and indicting Amaechi without hearing his own side of the story.

In a statement by its national Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko,, HURIWA said it thinks “the politically motivated witch-hunt using certain forces in the judiciary against Amaechi is the source of the current political troubles and ‘karma’ afflicting Wike.”

HURIWA also stated that Governor Wike, in the last eight years, has become anti-workers and dictatorial.


Wike had on Monday said that some aggrieved losers in the People Democratic Party, PDP, governorship primary for 2023 which produced former State Accountant-General, Sim Fubara as candidate, were leading an Abuja plot for his downfall.

Wike during activities to celebrate former Governor Peter Odili at 74, pointed at some of the party leaders who, on his 2021 birthday, indicated interest to fly the ticket, but failed in the end, as spearheading the gang up against him.

HURIWA counselled Wike “to put an end to his cantankerous political warfare against his kinsman- Amaechi and end his administration as a democrat and not a quarrelsome tyrant.”
