2019: PDP planning to win on fabricated allegations against Buhari’s government, Coalition reveals

2019: Cross River Central vow to vote against APC, PDP

A Coalition of about 100 Civil Society Organizations in Nigeria has claimed that it has uncovered dubious plots by the Peoples Democratic Party to win the 2019 elections using frivolous and fictitious allegations the Buhari administration.

The group claimed a plot that has been hatched by the PDP to manufacture falsehood and distort facts in its campaign for the 2019 presidential and other elections using some key government agencies and parastatals under the supervision of President Muhammadu Buhari .

According to the coalition, under the aegis of Save Nigeria Network, part of the plot is to smear the administration with non-existing corruption allegations in some agencies under the direct supervision of the President, Vice Preident or his close allies.

Addressing newsmen on Thursday on the development, Patience Daniel, Secretary General of SNN said the plot was initially in the realm of speculations but there is now concrete evidence with the publication by a group that calls itself ‘Get Nigeria Working Again’ of an infographic that attempted to malign the incumbent government, citing unresolved corruption in NNPC, NEMA, NHIS, PINE Fund, Bird Flu intervention, Abacha Loot and Security Vote.

She said, “The inclusion of these agencies and expenditures in the referenced publications is nothing but a calculated attempt to unleash terror on the President Muhammadu Buhari led federal government.

“This plot is in itself an insult to the sensibility of the voting population in that it seeks to play on their intelligence by exploiting the believability of printed matter. That is to say that those promoting these lies see Nigerians to swallow their lies hook, line and sinker based on the assumption that one it has been printed or published it would be considered the truth. Playing such prank on the people is the lowest form of fraud possible.

“We believe in the power of information to set the record straight, which is why we are urging Nigerians to be circumspect when processing claims being made by the PDP. A detailed background of the party and the issues it is trying to exploit are of importance in this matter. Even though the PDP elements have created the impression that they are drawing attention to germane issues, their antecedents and involvement in the same issues create suspicion.

“It must be noted that most of the instances claimed by the PDP in alleging corruption under the present administration actually have their roots in the 16 years that this party misruled, destroyed and looted Nigeria. They are now being made to appear as having occurred under the Buhari government. They have now turned around to pass the bulk simply because the present government took its time to duly ensure that investigation into what transpired in the various agencies were thoroughly concluded.

“What these treasury looters have done is to use the agents they have planted in the named organizations to produce fictitious documents upon which they based their misleading claims. They also manipulated dates so that crimes committed in the PDP years are now being presented as incidents that occurred under the present government. Unfortunately for them, Nigerians are aware that the issues raised by this group pre-date the Buhari presidency and were in reality transacted under the watch of PDP.

“Another level of the conspiracy is to activate the caucuses of the PDP in the National Assembly to conduct kangaroo probes of the said corrupt agencies and use the manipulated outcomes of such investigations to level impeachable offenses against President Buhari. The discussion among the team that activated this plot is that President Buhari would be distracted from his ongoing issue based campaign once he is served impeachment notice.

“The Coalition of CSOs for Good Governance in Nigeria therefore wishes to lay these issues on the table and to put Nigerians and the world on notice that these people who have failed in every other endeavor have now decided that the only campaign tools they have left is to tarnish the image of well-meaning Nigerians that are managing the respective agencies and programmes in their desperation to get at President Buhari. We further want to draw attention to:

“The institutional damage being done to the affected organizations as they now have to make extra efforts at confidence building among their various stakeholders.

“The destruction of Nigeria’s image in the international community as a country that does not do things right with the attendant consequence that investors’ confidence is dampened thereby denying the country of foreign direct investment.

“The potential to heating up the polity with a dud impeachment move against the President as this would further deepen the fault lines brought about by the PDP in its 16 years of misadventure.

“The distortion of the political process by basing campaign on lies that undermine activities related to the election.”

Gov. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike


The General Overseer of Omega Power Ministries (OPM), Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere has declared that Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has been ordained for a divine second term because of his projects delivery.

This is as Governor Wike stated that Christians must fully participate in the electoral process to determine the right leadership to transform the country.

They spoke at the OPM Worldwide Headquarters at Doctors Jesus City, Mbodo Aluu, Rivers State on Sunday.

Speaking at the Church Service, the General Overseer of OPM, Apostle Chinyere stated that Governor Wike has used his divine mandate to improve infrastructure across the state and deliver good governance to Rivers people.

He stated that his 2014 endorsement of the Rivers State Governor still subsists because it has not been withdrawn.

“The key to Government House which we divinely handed over to Governor Wike in 2014 before his first term is still in his pocket.

“Therefore, he will finish his second. I now hand over to Governor Wike the key to his second term. The governor will conclude his second term. Any plot against the governor’s second term will be scattered in Jesus Name “.

He said that the governor fulfilled his promise to the Church by releasing the land they acquired along the airport. He said that action has led to the expansion of OPM.

Apostle Chinyere stated that OPM will continue to support the State Government through investments in free education, rehabilitation of commercial sex and criminals .

“If all Churches operate free schools , crime will reduce. The government should enact a law that churches that fail to operate free schools should pay tax. We are also going to construct an All Girls Technical College”, he said.

In his remarks, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike stated that the refusal of Christians to use their voting strength has helped to enthrone poor leadership.

He said in 2019, Christians should effectively use their permanent voters cards to vote for credible leaders with the capacity to govern and improve the economy.

“You can only stop the emergence of a bad leader if you use your voters cards in the right direction. Don’t sit down and allow anybody to say they are more than you in number.

“When we are unconcerned and uninterested, bad leadership comes to the country”, he said.

Governor Wike agreed that his second term is secured because God has confirmed it through the voice of a leading cleric, Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere.
“If the General Overseer has given me the key to Government House, nobody can receive the key. Even if they bring a crane or submarine, the key is secured.

“They are fighting themselves while I am moving ahead . God has placed a spirit of confusion in them”, he said.
Governor Wike noted that he will continue to partner with the Church to develop Rivers State. He noted that his political strength and presence flows from the support of the church.

The governor called on the Church to pray against violent elections in Rivers State, plans by INEC to manipulate the results and plans to use security agencies to manipulate polls.

2019 presidency:Akpabio reveals first state Buhari will win, says election will end within 3 hours

Published

on


A former Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has declared that President Muhammadu Buhari will win the presidential election within three hours of voting.

The former Governor of Akwa Ibom State also claimed that the state would be first Buhari will win on February 16.

The lawmaker, who spoke in an interview with journalists in Uyo, was responding to a question on the possibility of violence in Akwa Ibom during the election following his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

According to him, the people of the state have already decided who they will vote, insisting that there is no battle ground in the state.

Akpabio said, “APC had taken over Akwa Ibom even before I joined the party. By the time I decided to join APC, by the time I landed at the airport, the whole airport was APC.

“The whole of the airport to the town was APC. The whole of the plaza in Uyo was APC, the jubilation was infectious.

“Women and men were bringing their brooms from under their bed, which means they had been hiding them because of me and they were sweeping the roads.

“A distance of 20 minutes took us over two hours to cover because of the jubilation. I was now saying that so all these people belong to APC.

“When I asked them, they said, “Sir, after you left office, the situation wasn’t the same again. We have moved to APC”. And I asked them when, and they said since 2015.

“If you ask the APC headquarters, they will tell you that we have over 300,000 card-carrying members who joined the party within six weeks.

“When I hear that Akwa Ibom is going to be a battle-ground, I laugh because there is no battle-ground in a state that has already shown direction.

“I can confidently confirm to you that the first state President Buhari will win within three hours of voting is Akwa Ibom.

“It is not because of me but because of the change that the Federal Government has started. The reason I am being attacked is just because I am a leader here and a lot of people came out boldly to associate with APC when I joined, but the people have rejected PDP before I declared for APC.”

Senator Godswill Akpabio


By Augustine Aminu

Ahead of the 2019 general elections, an international based None Governmental Organization, Global Peace Movement International (GPMI), have thrown their weight behind Sen. Godswill Akpabio’s re-election bid.

Dr. Mike Uyi, President General of the organization, in an interview with newsmen in Lagos described Governor Akpabio as an icon of democracy and a good example of what leadership should represent in Nigeria and Africa at large.

He said their support for Senator Akpabio was not unconnected with his landmark achievements in this democratic dispensation.

“Available and verifiable facts singled out Senator Akpabio as a pride of Africa, worthy of emulation”.

Dr. Uyi further stated that Senator Akpabio’s achievements in the areas of human capital development; infrastructure and quality legislation remains a reference point among lawmakers in Nigeria.

“It is on record that this Icon of democracy during his time as the Executive Governor of Akwa-Ibom State introduced free, compulsory and qualitative education policy; free medical care for pregnant women, children and the aged; and the massive infrastructural investment”, Dr. Uyi emphasized.

“We decided to throw our weight behind a man who has what it takes to represent his people and that is why we are supporting Senator Akpabio.”

“He has good track record as a politician who means well for the common man in the village. Not the politicians who are afraid to stay among their people in their immediate environment. Senator Akpabio is a grassroots man who knows the needs of the masses, and shares the little he has with them”.
