Permanent Trouble” in the eyes of the Presidency, and how, despite having been praised to high heavens by APC, both in Benue and Abuja



“Permanent Trouble” in the eyes of the Presidency, and how, despite having been praised to high heavens by APC, both in Benue and Abuja, as a jewel of the party and endorsed for its automatic ticket for his re-election bid, he became overnight the worst thing to have happened to the party.




“All of these couldn’t have been just that the Benue State Governor lacked the capacity to understand the difference between Nigerian Fulani and their neighbouring West-African kith and kin, or that he didn’t appreciate the age of the conflict between Fulani and farmers in his state.





Shocking News: These bandits strike at will, maim at will, destroy lives and property at will. In other parts of the state, we also have kidnappers who not only take people on the road

“Rather the parting of ways between the Buhari Presidency and Gov. Ortom was and still is to be located in the fundamental divergence in the view of the president and his advisers, who are mainly of his Fulani ethnic stock background, on one hand, and on the other hand the governor and his Benue people who are the victims bearing the brunt of the brutal bloodletting and pillaging in their

Celebrating their defeat in the polls. Because of their evil infested minds, defeat for APC amounts to victory for them



“It is truly pathetic that Okorocha and Nwosu are celebrating their defeat in the polls. Because of their evil infested minds, defeat for APC amounts to victory for them.



 This crooked reasoning only goes to confirm what is already in public domain which is that he and his father-in-law set out from the beginning to destroy APC in Imo


consequent upon which they colluded with the PDP to exclude the votes cast for the party in the elections, from the final collation,”

The sad thing is that in the midst of talking of about 20 Nigerians on death roll, even as eight had been executed



The sad thing is that in the midst of talking of about 20 Nigerians on death roll, even as eight had been executed, just yesterday another Nigerian, Wahid Somade, was arrested at Jeddah airport with about 1,138g of cocaine.



“The latest one would be added to those that could be executed. We keep appealing to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to ensure for trial is fair. 





We keep begging Nigerians to obey the laws of other countries and Saudi has replied us officially, saying their law is their law.

How does the frog-eyed, pot-bellied Creek Haramite feel? The truth is that he was never fit for power in the first



Now that he has been disgraced in his Rivers state how does the frog-eyed, pot-bellied Creek Haramite feel? The truth is that he was never fit for power in the first place because he was born in the gutter. He crawled out of that gutter but the gutter never crawled our of him.




“His houseboy background has always haunted him and he has no class or character. All the virtues in God’s heaven and on earth are alien to him and he cannot possibly comprehend them let alone espouse or imbibe them. That is why he has always behaved like an animal.



“A creature from hell that orchestrated the arrest, detention and murder of hundreds of his own Rivers people by outsiders in a futile attempt to win power in Port Harcourt and capture the state is not worthy of public office, honor, decency or respect.




“He and his ilk are a sad reflection of what politics and politicians have turned into in Nigeria. I would not put him in charge of my dog kennels or horse stables let alone a Federal Ministry or a state.



“They took the beast out of the bush but they could not take the bush out of the beast. When a pig wears lipstick it still remains a pig and it still stinks to high heavens.

Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, to forcefully and violently take over control of the state against the wish of the people




“The victory reinforces the confidence of the people in the resoluteness of asserting their democratic choice of leadership as well as standing in defence of their mandate to the end.



“It also demonstrates that the will of the people will always prevail against every form of suppression as were eminently manifested in the desperation by the APC leaders, 


They also failed to consider the fact that Senator Ademola Adeleke himself decamped from APC to PDP and clinched PDP’s Osun West

particularly, the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, to forcefully and violently take over control of the state against the wish of the people.”

We understand the desperation of the sponsors of this campaign of calumny to get power through the back door after the crushing defeat they suffered




“Our attention has been drawn to the politically-sponsored allegation against the APC Kwara Governor-elect, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, that he forged the SSSC he presented for election.'



“We understand the desperation of the sponsors of this campaign of calumny to get power through the back door after the crushing defeat they suffered from Kwara electorate in the last general elections.


No man born of a woman can fraudulently snatch away the victory given to him by God  



“While it is the right of the rejected opposition and their proxies to approach the election tribunal relying on their flimsy and false claims, we assure Kwarans that it is an exercise in futility,”

The south supported us to rule for eight years, it will be bad if we in turn, betray them and still retain power in the nort





“As a party with vision for equity and fairness, the APC has already planned to shift power to the southern part of Nigeria.
“It is worthy of note that some political elements in the Northern Nigeria are opposed to the arrangement.



“They worked against APC during the last governorship elections with the aim of allowing the opposition PDP to win more states.



”This was done to build the PDP to be formidable to wrestle power from APC in 2023 against the interest of the south.
“I am urging the leadership of the party at the national level to review the last governorship elections with the view to identifying those elements and wield the stick on them.

His case seems on the wayward side because innately, he brooks no opposition to his views and parades a fake aura of superior wisdom



In Nigeria or African generally, septuagenarian or octogenarian ages are like a double edged sword. It could be a curse or a blessing to someone depending on how he utilizes this special favour from God Almighty in spending these rare years of grace.


“They can be treasures of wisdom in their communities or nations. But the worse experience is when such people bow to the strings of senility and the instinctual drive of incoherence.

He should be ashamed today that he connived with the PDP to rig

“The latter category is the problem with Nigeria’s former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo (OBJ). And his case seems on the wayward side because innately, he brooks no opposition to his views and parades a fake aura of superior wisdom.

It is not just going to be a Senate for only the APC members. It is a Senate that will consist of the APC, PDP, and YPP




“We are reaching to all our colleagues, regardless of their political persuasions after all we are supposed to work together.


“It is not just going to be a Senate for only the APC members. It is a Senate that will consist of the APC, PDP, and YPP.



“Therefore, we need everybody to support the genuine and laudable course of making Nigeria better.

Urged the IPOB to “resist any temptation of allowing Nnamdi Kanu to return to Nigeria, as the healing process of those slaughtered during the first arrest and python Dance



Urged the IPOB to “resist any temptation of allowing Nnamdi Kanu to return to Nigeria, as the healing process of those slaughtered during the first arrest and python Dance has not been completed.


“There’s no need to escalate the tension already established in the Southeast over the menace of herdsmen ravaging some parts of igbo land; there’s no need to compound our loss by allowing Nnamdi Kanu return now until Igbo Christian and Traditional leaders intervene in the process.

Shocking statement: They should ask them where they got those certificates from. We didn’t issue certificate to anybody. I saw some funny certificates that were not signed

“We are pleading With President Buhari as the father of the Nation to grant Presidential Pardon to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, as a way to show compassion to Ndigbo. We are aware of the Presidential release of over 500 inmates of suspected Boko Haram detainees in Kano Prisons.


“Presidential Pardon to all Biafra agitators, including Nnamdi Kanu will save a lot of Billions of Naira that would’ve been used for peacekeeping, in the imminent collapse of peace and civil disturbances that will follow immediately if he’s re-arrested.


“Such billions can be used on alternative Road Projects in southeast, because Aba, Port Harcourt, Asaba, Abakiliki, Enugu, Onitsha, Nnewi and Owerri may become ungovernable as we witnessed during the last arrest of Nnamdi Kanu.

I was shocked when I was told to give money, I said money for what? Money to the committee that visited us?



When I came to NAFDAC, there were a lot of things that were wrong. Take oversight function or whatever that is done, I was shocked when I was told to give money, I said money for what? Money to the committee that visited us? The health care services committee of the house of representatives. 




“This was 2017 December, not even a month to my resumption. We don’t have another country, this is Nigeria. I was shocked first because this was the same day I went for a Powerpoint presentation… we don’t have equipment, about 70 percent of our equipment need to be upgraded.



Shocking Politics speech: I have told you the options; defend yourself, get a new counsel or I’ll appoint a legal aid counsel for you

“We don’t have vehicles and you use vehicles to go after the bad guys or to ensure compliance. Our directors didn’t have computers, laptops, it was shortly after that, they then asked me (and said) we need welfare.

Campaign Council in the state denied the allegation, wondering where will Wike get such huge amount from to offer Awara



“I had earlier turned down an offer of N3b, Gov. Wike offered to me some days ago through his associates. I discussed this with my running mate and outlined why we must not succumb to the lure from the governor or any interest group. 




“I was convinced that we were in agreement because he neither expressed nor alluded to a difference in opinion on the matter.”



However, PDP’s Campaign Council in the state denied the allegation, wondering where will Wike get such huge amount from to offer Awara.

“I can confirm that Mr. Sanwo-Olu and Governor Ambode are in constant touch with each other. They are working quietly behind the scene to come up with a smooth transition. 


‘’They are talking majorly about the composition of the transition committee that will work on the seamless hand-over on May 29th this year. There is no rift of any sort between the Governor-Elect and the sitting Governor.


Shocking words: Justice has not been done to our people in this election because there was massive rigging and electoral shortcomings

“I can speak authoritatively that the Governor-elect does not think about all that happened during the campaign period, rather his mind is fixed on the future of Lagos State.

“You should have known that it was all in preparation for the election. So, even if Alhaji Atiku Abubakar had been declared winner, are you sure the incumbent would have agreed to step down?

Why allow an odious fellow like Festus (Stephanie Otobo) Keyamo rubbish what you have built over the years? Why sell out so cheaply?



And as for you Charlyboy, I admired you when I was a child. You have built up such a formidable mystique. Why allow an odious fellow like Festus (Stephanie Otobo) Keyamo rubbish what you have built over the years? Why sell out so cheaply?



“When you, Charlyboy were a star in the 80s, where was Festus (Stephanie Otobo) Keyamo? You used to be a respected legendary icon. Who should be bribing who between you and that ambulance chaser called Keyamo? Oh, I am so disappointed!

Shocking statement: “The two officers who went there on Monday did so incognito and found the allegations to be false. The officers were served without any questions or discrimination. They also took photographs without being noticed.....



“Charly Boy, I went to your concert at Trade Fair Complex as a teenager in 1990. I saw you physically. I spent my pocket money on you. I can still sing 1990, your hit 1989 song. Why have you chosen to make me ashamed of you in my middle age AreaFada?
