I’ve No Plans to Switch Parties, Says Obaseki

Published

on

Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has again said he has no plans to join another political party, reassuring that his party affiliation will not alter development plans for the state.

Obaseki, who spoke yesterday during a Banquet in Benin City, as part of activities for this year’s Alaghodaro Summit, said his government is committed to ensuring a progressive and prosperous Edo State where all citizens will live life to the fullest.

The governor said, “No matter the persuasion to join any political party, I will not. I will continue to provide leadership for all Edo people. We don’t need to join another political party to develop Edo State to become a home for all.
“Our goal is to position Edo where it should be, as our State has been created to provide leadership for this country; that is how it has been and will always be.”

Obaseki said the Alaghodaro Summit has become a platform which his administration is using to prepare the youths of the Edo State for tomorrow’s leadership position.

According to him, “Our politics is being driven by data. We will continue to do our best as a government to make life better for our people who trusted us with their votes.

“In the last five years, we have been in the foundation laying the stage for the development of Edo State. That era has passed and now, it’s time to move as fast as possible in developing the State as the challenges and barriers have been taken care of.”

Earlier, former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Governor of Edo State, John- Odigie Oyegun commended Obaseki for curbing irregular migration among Edo youths.

According to him, “Today, our youths are no longer traveling through the Mediterranean Sea as you have curbed the menace of irregular migration. Our youths are now being prepared for the future with the use of technology.

“When Edo prospers, the nation will prosper; our artifacts are all over the world, our achievements are all over; this is what Alaghodaro is all about.”

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.

Nigeria attracts $10.1 billion diaspora remittance in six months 2022

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
