Beware of fake foreign agencies that promise work abroad. They process your papers, pay for your tickets and then take you abroad




“Beware of fake foreign agencies that promise work abroad. They process your papers, pay for your tickets and then take you abroad in pretense that they want to get you a job there, Attah said.
“Instead, they end up killing their victims and harvesting all the valuable body parts.




“A lot of people were offered jobs in the Middle East but up till now, their family members cannot trace their whereabouts.



“The body parts’ black market business is booming in Middle East. One kidney now costs $262,000, heart costs $119,000 and liver costs $157,000. Let our children and grandchildren be aware of these evil devices.”

Our people are being killed like flies and it does not seem to matter to anybody, so that is why we are here and that is why we are marching



 Yari only cared “about the people of Zamfara when it comes to politics.”

“Our people are being killed like flies and it does not seem to matter to anybody, so that is why we are here and that is why we are marching,” she said.




“As far as I am concerned, that governor is the most useless in the history of Nigeria. This is a governor whose reaction to the killings in his state was to resign as chief security officer. 




He went on the record to say that he cannot be chief security officer. I don’t know what he is still doing in office.

“President Buhari and Oshiomhole should wake up to the fact that the National Assembly belongs to no political party but to all Nigerians

 


“It is therefore laughable and amounts to empty grandstanding and self-delusion for President Muhammadu Buhari and the factional National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, to posture as if the presiding offices and Committee Chairmanship in the National Assembly are exclusive rights of the APC”, he said in a statement.




“President Buhari and Oshiomhole should wake up to the fact that the National Assembly belongs to no political party but to all Nigerians, who exercise their control through their elected representatives.



“For emphasis, Section 50 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) is clear in providing that “There shall be:- (a) a President and a Deputy President of the Senate, who shall be elected by the members of that House from among themselves; and (b) a Speaker and a Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, who shall be elected by the members of that House from among themselves”.

it is becoming absolutely clear that it is not an either or, it is not whether its PDP or APC, especially when you have margins that are so narrow

     


“With recent elections in Nigeria, it is becoming absolutely clear that it is not an either or, it is not whether its PDP or APC, especially when you have margins that are so narrow,”




“Elections are becoming more competitive, people are winning elections with 300 votes. We need to be looking in the direction of collective engagement, whether you call that pro
 portional representation or  you call it joint government

Shocking statement: Are in constant touch with each other. They are working quietly behind the scene to come up with




“Ultimately, you cannot win an election with 300 votes and take all, and the person who loses that election with 300 votes gets nothing, it is a recipe for disaster, and as a country, we need to start looking in another direction.”

Crisis in the State using the platform of our promising Party. “I was forced to sign an un-dated letter of resignation as the Deputy Governor



“Please note also that by this notice, I cease to be the Deputy Governorship Candidate of our Party, the AAC, for the 2019 Governorship Election in Rivers State.



“My decisions were informed by the complete hijack of the structure and administration of our Party by a faction of the APC in Rivers State led by the Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, for his personal political ambition.

Shocking words: it is becoming absolutely clear that it is not an either or, it is not whether its PDP or APC, especially when you have margins that are so narrow



“Furthermore, the Rotimi Amaechi led faction of the APC is not letting in its determination to subvert the will of Rivers people and cause crisis in the State using the platform of our promising Party.



“I was forced to sign an un-dated letter of resignation as the Deputy Governor of Rivers State to pave way for Rotimi Amaechi to nominate another person as Deputy Governor.

He lost very badly, even though about 100,000 votes he claimed to have got were added because elections conducted without card reader


Let me say this without any fear of contradiction, since President Buhari started contesting for the presidency since 2003, he has never lost Kaduna. So, PDP has never won elections in Kaduna from 2003, even with a sitting governor in 2003, 2007, 2011, 2015. It has never happened.



“I don’t know what will happen that Atiku will win Kaduna in this elections this time. He lost Kaduna, he lost very badly, even though about 100,000 votes he claimed to have got were added because elections conducted without card reader in some parts of the state, that’s how he even got up to the 400,000 that he got.

Shocking speech: children under the age of five are more than 20 times more likely to die from diarrhea-related deaths linked to lack of access to safe water and sanitation



“He has lost Kaduna, he will always lose Kaduna, he will lose Kaduna 10 more times because he has never won Kaduna in any presidential elections.”

The hoodlums didn’t just stop at that; they went to the INEC office and were shooting sporadically at policemen who were on duty there



“We only heard gunshots and nobody knew what actually happened until Wednesday morning,” he said.

“The divisional police officer, alongside three other officers who were on duty were killed on the spot, inside the building.

“The hoodlums didn’t just stop at that; they went to the INEC office and were shooting sporadically at policemen who were on duty there. Election materials and a police van at the INEC office were burnt by the hoodlums.”

I said why do you want to go abroad and discuss the affairs of an electoral process outside Nigeria? Why do you want me to enter aeroplane and go to where?



 “The very people who wanted me to compromise are the ones who are accusing me. They are the ones who wanted me to travel abroad to hold a secret meeting with them and I said no.


“I said why do you want to go abroad and discuss the affairs of an electoral process outside Nigeria? Why do you want me to enter aeroplane and go to where? If you want to have a meeting with me, come to my office.



Read also: We will not allow this to happen. We will not surrender the mandates that were freely given to us by Nigerians to the enemies of democracy in the country

“Since I have been in this state, anybody who says he has given me pure water, let him or her come forward and say so. All those who contested the elections whether in PDP or APC or any party, I don’t know them other than their lists of the names.



“As I speak to you, I don’t have their contacts, even those who won. If I see them on the way, I won’t recognise them.”

I’m not convinced that my vote will count. You can see a very low voter turnout


“Suddenly, I’m not convinced that my vote will count. You can see a very low voter turnout. I believe the last elections were marred by a lot of malpractices,”.


“I particularly abhor the participation of the military in electoral process. It’s absolutely unconstitutional and unlawful.”



“It requires the coming together of all Nigerians and the leadership to be able to redress all the challenges we face in the last elections.”

it is President Buhari, who has not been able to offer any explanation on the looting of over N14 trillion from revenue generating agencies



“President Buhari and his All Progressives Congress (APC) should know that the PDP and Nigerians are focused and will not be distracted by any sort of blackmail in the pursuit of the mandate and we are confident that our justices will never allow an illegitimate government to sit over the affairs of our dear nation.




“Moreover, if anybody has a question to answer on the administration of the nation’s resources, it is President Buhari, who has not been able to offer any explanation on the looting of over N14 trillion from revenue generating agencies in a space of three years under his direct supervision.


“We ask; was it the PDP that siphoned over N9 trillion, through underhand contracts, as detailed in the leaked NNPC memo, in the same sector President Buhari directly supervises as Minister of Petroleum Resources?


“President Buhari must note that Nigerians are no longer interested in his incompetence and blame game and this is the very reason they voted massively against him on February 23. He should therefore end his diversionary tactics and get ready to meet the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in court.”

In the wee hours this morning, I got a call that one of the areas offices has been gutted by fire


“In the wee hours this morning, I got a call that one of the areas offices has been gutted by fire. So we had to call the fire service, and the DPO around that area,” .




“So they all moved in there, and responded, and there were able to evacuate the entire ballot papers that had been delivered to the local government, intact.


But because the storeroom behind the building is very close to the fence, obviously we saw some footprints, because it rained yesterday, it was very clear where they came in through to do the sabotage.

Buhari’s “renewed attack” on the PDP is a ploy by the president to “divert public attention from the overwhelming evidence that he rigged the elections


Buhari’s “renewed attack” on the PDP is a ploy by the president to “divert public attention from the overwhelming evidence that he rigged the elections.”



“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) charges President Muhammadu Buhari to stop gloating and showboating on Nigerians with the stolen 2019 Presidential mandate, as the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar would soon retrieve it from him at the tribunal,” the opposition party said.




“The party further describes President Buhari’s renewed attack and blame game on PDP administrations as a lame attempt to divert public attention from the overwhelming evidence that he rigged the elections, as well as from the plots by his Presidency to obstruct the clear winner, Atiku Abubakar, from going to the tribunal to reclaim the mandate freely given to him by Nigerians.

to have done the killing were arrested. And one of them is a candidate of one political party



whether you are a candidate or not, you are expected not to break the law.


He said: “The group of people that were suspected to have done the killing (in Kwara) were arrested. And one of them is a candidate of one political party. So because he is a candidate in the election, should we allow him go without facing the law?


“He has been arrested with others for him to defend himself. It is not just because he belongs to a political party; it was because of the murder that took place.”

shocked to hear General Buhari live on national television threatening to kill people for an offence

We were shocked to hear General Buhari live on national television threatening to kill people for an offence where no such proscription exists under law.  
The last time we looked the death-penalty was not a sanction of the 2010 election act,” he said.
“In fact, threatening people with death in the context of an election is incitement to electoral violence, which is an offence under that act.

They pretend that they do not know what corruption is. But Nigerians know what corruption is


Corruption has negatively affected our political, economic and social life.  

Those opposed to our fight against corruption berate us for our focus, determination and single mindedness.  


They pretend that they do not know what corruption is. But Nigerians know what corruption is.  Ordinary people know what corruption is and they support our effort and determination to fight it.

By this action the President has lost all his integrity and fitness to govern, and should not remain in office


”President Buhari’s suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria from office is, in itself, a most condemnable subversion of the Constitution, but his statement while announcing it to the public makes the action so absurdly subversive,” the statement read.

“By this action the President has lost all his integrity and fitness to govern, and should not remain in office.


”The ‘administration’s avowed respect for the Rule of Law’ and for obedience of court orders sound like a deliberate perversion of truth, as witnessed by Dasuki’s continued detention four years after a court of law ordered his release on bail, and same as Ibrahim Yaquob El Zakzaky two years after he was granted bail.”

We don’t have money to give everybody. We will use the money for the provision of infrastructure


“Let them feel they are important enough as Nigerian citizens. Therefore, we need their support and cooperation, let them come and vote for us.

“We don’t have money to give everybody. We will use the money for the provision of infrastructure – we will try and do your roads, we will try and do the rail and we will improve on power.


“I assure you that I go to bed and wake up thinking about Nigerians and Nigeria.”

Where are the roads and other infrastructure to justify the huge resources that have accrued to the state?


What has happened to the commonwealth, which has been cornered by a single dynasty at the expense of the people.

“Where are the roads and other infrastructure to justify the huge resources that have accrued to the state?


“If you follow a path for so long, and it leads you nowhere, won’t you try another path? These are the issues.”

they couldn’t talk today because they are minority leaders. They are not even supposed to talk in the first place



the lawmaker said the two presiding officers have become minority leaders.
He said the All Progressives Congress (APC), the party which he joined in August, has majority lawmakers in both chambers of the national assembly.


Asked to comment on the inability of Saraki and Dogara to control the lawmakers who disrupted the president’s speech,


“Yes, they couldn’t talk today because they are minority leaders. They are not even supposed to talk in the first place. They should therefore do the needful and resign honourably or face being booted out of office,” he said.
