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



“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 but in the comfort of their homes,” he added, citing the “unfortunate incident of the Governor’s in-law who was taken in the comfort of her home".



He said government officials have met with eight front-line local government chairmen to keep them abreast of the security situation. He also gave the assurance that government would do all possible to see to the final onslaught on the bandits and kidnappers in the state.



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

The eight LGs are Jibia, Batsari, Safana, Dan-Musa, Faskari, Sabuwa, Dandume and Kankara. Some of the LGs share boundaries with Zamfara State, which is under constant attacks from bandits and kidnappers.

The commercial banks have been deducting the sum of N50 on every deposit with a value of N1,000 and above since January



“The commercial banks have been deducting the sum of N50 on every deposit with a value of N1,000 and above since January 2000.



“At the moment, the total sum of N33bn had been realised through the collection of stamp duties, which falls far below the expectation of stakeholders. It is expected that at the end of the exercise, over N100billion will be recovered.



“The commission has concluded arrangements to engage the services of reputable forensic audit firms to carry out the probe of the banks. The probe will be comprehensive as it will cover the affixed stamp used on cheque books prior to the introduction of electronic transactions.”

Any patriotic Nigerian will know that when the polity is overheated the way it is being done now, at the end of the day there will be violence; there will be massive




"Any patriotic Nigerian will know that when the polity is overheated the way it is being done now, at the end of the day there will be violence; there will be massive movement of people from where they are legitimately working and earning their living to their hometowns.




"After decades of independence, we ought to be beyond this kind of ramshackle government, where if you ignite a match, people will start scrambling to go back to their homes.



"People used to go to their homes to vote during elections, but this time it was a big progress as people stayed where they live to vote.




"I’m about 70, and when I was growing up, election was like a mad house or a psychiatric home. Once election was approaching everybody was going to railway station to but ticket to travel to their homes, but this time around, people stayed behind to vote. This is a big progress and I hope it will continue. Why will I leave Kano to Port Harcourt to vote? It doesn’t make sense.

We have written a petition on the electoral fraud in Rivers State to the INEC chairman, stating the actual results




“We have written a petition on the electoral fraud in Rivers State to the INEC chairman, stating the actual results, but Professor Yakubu will not take action.”'


He urged his supporters to remain calm stating that the result would be challenged and he would “reclaim the stolen mandate”.




“I want Rivers people to be calm. We are going to reclaim the stolen mandate. We should not be troubled and we should never opt for violence.


Pension should be paid as and when due but 99 per cent of contributory pensioners, they allow us to die, while some have not received their lump sum payment  



“I want Rivers people, especially my teeming supporters, who are being pained by what they are seeing, to keep hope alive. Victory is certain. We are going to bring back the stolen mandate,

When they observed that I was leading and they saw the danger coming, they quickly moved on March




Not the collation agent of AAC in INEC office, Port Harcourt. Dr. Chuku is the duly-nominated collation agent of AAC, but he was prevented by security personnel at the gate of INEC’s office in Port Harcourt from moving to the collation centre.



“I have the unit by unit results of the March 9, 2019 elections in Rivers State. When they observed that I was leading and they saw the danger coming, they quickly moved on March 10 to save Wike, by suspending the collation of the results, which they resumed on April 1. 

The allegations are baseless and outright falsehood from the pit of hell. The objective of these lies and their sponsors is to dent

As at the time the collation was suspended, I had 281,000 votes, as against Wike’s 79,000 votes. So, they (INEC officials) quickly came to his rescue.



“We have written a petition on the electoral fraud in Rivers State to the INEC chairman, stating the actual results, but Professor Yakubu will not take action.”

Both the President and the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria are Muslims and our appeal is to let either the Senate President or the Speaker be a Christian to address the religious dichotomy



“Our quest becomes imperative due to the existing order in the two other arms of the government. Today, both the President and the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria are Muslims and our appeal is to let either the Senate President or the Speaker be a Christian to address the religious dichotomy.



This will give all Nigerians a sense of belonging irrespective of their religious affiliations. And a critical study of Chapter 14 (13 and 14) of the 1999 Constitution (As Amended) underscores this truth. 

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

The composition of the government of the federation or any of its agencies and the conduct of its affairs shall be carried out in such a manner as to reflect the federal character of Nigeria and the need to promote national unity, and also to command national loyalty, thereby ensuring that there shall be no predominance of persons from a few state or from a few ethnic or other sectional groups in that Government or in any of its agencies.




“The composition of the government of a state, a local government council, or any of the agencies of such Government or council, and the conduct of the affairs of the government or council or such agencies shall be carried out in such manner as to recognise the diversity of the people within its area of authority and the need to promote a sense of belonging and loyalty among all the people of the federation.”

I do not suspect any foul play. I can only say what I know but honestly, this is the handiwork of the Buhari Federal Government



Definitely, if I had brought my passport today, they would have impounded it; that is what it is. There are no two ways about it, but the passport is with the Court. But even if they decide to do so, like I said, the passport is a property of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, so they can request for it.



Do you suspect any foul play?


I do not suspect any foul play. I can only say what I know but honestly, this is the handiwork of the Buhari Federal Government.


What actions are you going to take now?


Honestly, there is nothing I can do, I am already in court, we have challenged Order 6 and all the Orders that are there. I am a citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and it is through my own sweat that I went for treatment.

Now, I don’t care. But if you want to use my work, you pay for it. Of course, he paid for it. And he paid heavy for it.”


“When Keyamo came to discuss Deji’s matter, he heard my new song that I was working on, and I know his head was calculating what he was going to do with the song.


Now, I don’t care. But if you want to use my work, you pay for it. Of course, he paid for it. And he paid heavy for it.”



“Everybody wanted a part of that money, including Deji and for me; I don’t mind sharing...”

At the beginning, I didn’t know it was document of a property but I later got to know when the EFCC invited me





“At the beginning, I didn’t know it was document of a property but I later got to know when the EFCC invited me and I had to contact Mr. Abiodun Agbele,”


“As an adult, will you tell a lie, if you are told to lie?”

Shocking speech: Our candidate had just been accused of spending time in a mental home and spraying fake dollars in a Nite club in the United States

“In the first statement, I didn’t say the truth because of the relationship between me and the person.”



“If you are told not to say the truth, you will not say the truth.


“I was trying to help a friend. I lied to help a friend at the time. But when the lawyer asked me, I went back to say the truth based on my conscience.

Frequent use of offensive and abusive words, which secondary school students get to read, very often, is unhelpful. It is advisable for every political party




“Only last Thursday, the Commission presented certificates of return to senators-elect and House of Representatives members-elect; including PDP members. Nevertheless, the Commission will comply when the due process is followed.




“But, let me also say this. The PDP needs to show some decorum in the way it composes its press statements. The INEC chairman and Commission members deserve some respect.

“The PDP’s frequent use of offensive and abusive words, which secondary school students get to read, very often, is unhelpful. It is advisable for every political party to show good examples and a deep sense of responsibility in the way it composes statements for public consumption.”

I do not believe Sanwo-Olu won a clear contest. I am going to court. I have overwhelming evidence and will get lawyers that handle electoral matters




“I am not accepting the results of last Saturday's gubernatorial election as it is complete fraud on the people of Lagos State. The election is full of many machinations as many voters were intimidated and lot of multiple voting occurred in many polling units. The collation fraud was huge as the ruling party did everything to discredit the candidate of AD and relegate us by putting us in the sixth position.

 “I do not believe Sanwo-Olu won a clear contest. I am going to court. I have overwhelming evidence and will get lawyers that handle electoral matters to look into these irregularities committed against my party in the just concluded election.



“It is very easy to win the case when you have enough evidence. We will follow the matter to a logical conclusion and we believe we will get justice.”

The fear is that Ajimobi’s appearance at Adelabu’s campaign rallies will be damaging for the party

     

“The belief of Tinubu and other APC leaders is that it is Ajimobi that the people are angry with — not APC — therefore he should stay away from campaign activities,” an APC source very familiar with the development




“The fear is that Ajimobi’s appearance at Adelabu’s campaign rallies will be damaging for the party.



In fact, there is a jingle of the party begging the people, explaining that Ajimobi, not the party, is the fall guy. Since the presidential and national assembly elections, Adelabu has been campaigning on his own — without the Governor’s involvement.”

But we want to assure him that his threats will not deter us from defending the interest of workers



But we want to assure him that his threats will not deter us from defending the interest of workers in Ogun State whose rights he has been trampling upon. 




"This is especially on the following issues: the non-remittance of statutory deductions from workers’ salaries for pensions, cooperative, ileya, Christmas, etc., over a period of one hundred and five (105) months.




“To make matters worse, Governor Amosun sacked the Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress from his employment for standing firm in the defence of the rights of workers in Ogun State.

it shows that Atiku is working hand in glove with people within INEC as to know where machines are imported from





The implication of this is that assuming without conceding that this allegation is true, it means Atiku is working hand-in-hand with the ICT unit in INEC to know the kind of machines that are deployed to where. 



"We recognise that INEC is independent. I am not able to determine the type of card readers that it will deploy. I am not in the position to identify where they were imported from. 

But If Atiku has all of these details, it shows that Atiku is working hand in glove with people within INEC as to know where machines are imported from.

The particular commissioner you are referring to, whose name was mentioned on social media, is as we speak currently in his office in the commission



No commissioner of the commission was picked up by any security agency no house of any commissioner of INEC was raided; no any commissioner of INEC has been picked by the security agency,” he said.



“The particular commissioner you are referring to, whose name was mentioned on social media, is as we speak currently in his office in the commission. 

Similarly, no six directors were picked up by any security agency.

How much is your money that I’ll embezzle? You can’t match my pocket. I told them so


“They said I used my mouth to speak anyhow. However, that rough-handedness paid off in Osun. 

They claimed that we brought candidates from Lagos to become governors in Osun; people like Aregbesola and Oyetola. 


If we train your children, and they become experts in their fields, won’t we ask them to come home to make things better? How much is your money that I’ll embezzle? You can’t match my pocket. I told them so, and their traditional rulers were seated.

Oshiomhole lied to the gathering by the fraudulent announcement. We wish to state for the record



"We were embarrassed to hear the Chairman announce that we have collapsed our political structures into the APC, to support Governor Bindow's reelection bid," the candidates said in a statement.


"Oshiomhole lied to the gathering by the fraudulent announcement. We wish to state for the record that we attended the flag-off based on invitation, 

the same way we've attended flag-off of other contestants, who are members of the 'New Generation Governorship Candidates' Forum (NGGCF).

Where is the money? We will follow them; eventually, God willing, we will catch them and get our money back



“The previous government mentioned on their own that they spent $16billion on power, 


but you are better witnesses than myself; where is the power? Where is the money? We will follow them; eventually,


 God willing, we will catch them and get our money back.”
