Eze Blasts Atiku’s Lawyers, Media Aides for luring Atiku into the unnecessary battle

Published

Justice

Erstwhile media aide to Atiku Abubakar, the PDP Presidential candidate and former National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze has hailed the affirmation of the electoral victory of President Mohammadu Buhari by the Supreme Court.

In a unanimous judgment delivered on Tuesday, October 29, 2019, the apex court had struck out the appeal brought before it by Atiku/PDP challenging the victory of President Mohammadu Buhari/APC for lacking in merit, thereby affirming the earlier decision of the Presidential Election Tribunal which confirmed the authenticity of the victory of Mohammadu Buhari and APC in the last presidential election.

In a statement circulated to media houses, Eze said the judgment has laid to rest all speculations and uncertainties expressed by the PDP and media jobbers on the fate of Buhari and the APC at the Supreme Court. He described the victory as monumental, stressing that Nigerians were never perturbed about the security of their confidence on the Presidential Appeal Panel led by the CJN, Ibrahim Tanko.

Chief Eze, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress commended the steadfastness and commitment of the judiciary to manifestly serve justice on the matter amidst the massive and intimidating threats from those he said do not mean well for the country. Recall that the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) in connivance with the PDP and the PDP caucus at the HOR had mounted a stiff opposition against the Supreme Court on the constitution of members of the panel to hear the Atiku/PDP appeal for excluding a justice of the apex who has been hired to do their bidding.

“Gone are the days when judicial officers are stocked like pieces of furniture and receive orders and prohibitions from politicians to serve their whims and caprices. President Buhari has given the judiciary free hand to operate and Nigerians have since moved on with him,” Eze said.

Eze berated Atiku’s lawyers and  media aides for luring him into the needless legal battle even when they knew he had no good case. He said Alh. Atiku Abubakar would have saved himself some resources and embarrassments if he had listened to his wise counsel contained in an earlier statement wherein he made it categorically clear that he had very little or no evidences to prove his claims before the court.

He said “the Supreme Court judgement has vindicated my position that Alh. Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party have no case”. Eze further said the PDP would have long accepted defeat at the polls and responsibly move on with their roles as opposition, constructively criticising and offering advice to government where necessary.

He commended Nigerians for their continued support for the APC led federal government and urged them to be committed to national ideals, stressing that President Buhari mean well for Nigeria. He tasked the youth to tap into the very many opportunistic possibilities embedded in the schemes and programs of government to turn their fortunes for greater good.

Eze informed Atiku and the PDP that a lot of progress have been made in the fight against corruption and terrorism; strive for food sufficiency, Transportation and other sectors under the APC led government. He said the president’s commitment in strengthening bilateral ties with key economies is thoughtful and strategic to national development.   He added that Buhari’s recent visit to Sochi and his trip to Saudi Arabia will be of immense benefit to the country.

Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze urged Atiku to  work in synergy with Mohammadu Buhari in his quest to reposition the country and set her on the path of progress through friendly policies and programs.

Kogi West Rerun Election: I Reject Factitious Result In Totality-Dino Melaye

Published

on

Result

Senator Dino Melaye has rejected the results of the Kogi West Senatorial District rerun election which held on Saturday November 16.

Melaye who described the election as “helicopter election”, told newsmen that it was marred by compromise, extreme violence, and rigging.

According to Dino, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should have stopped the collation of results following the violence recorded in the election.

“The innovation is that what we had is what I have christened ‘Helicopter election’. For the first time, rigging has been advanced to the level that now the use of a helicopter in perpetuating this electoral atrocity manifested yesterday,” he told newsmen in Abuja.

“Helicopter hovering around Polling units in Lokoja, dropping bullets on innocent, harmless citizens and electorate; and as I speak, yesterday, teargas being fired from this helicopter.

“Despite the fact that this helicopter was used in harassing, intimidating and firing innocent electorates, the votes of those places were carted away and taken to the government house, stuffed and brought back to the collation centre and they have been accepted and admitted and collation is ongoing.

“They brought mayhem on my own community and even killed my nephew, we are waiting to see what INEC will do, but I reject in totality, this fictitious result and I want to say that all these are not about the election, it is about Dino Melaye,” he said.

Recall that the election that saw Melaye emerging as the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District was nullified by an Appeal Court on October 11.

Who Will Save Adams Oshiomhole?   

Published

Oshiomhole

 

Trouble has a way of finding its allies. This is a fact.

One person who should agree with this position is the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.

Known for his controversial style as a union leader several years back, Oshiomhole adopted the same pattern as the governor of Edo State.

Many would also recall how he found his way to the exalted office of the National Leader of his party taking over from John Oyegun.

However, like the proverbial saying “karma is a bitch”, it is trouble that is set to mark his fall from grace.

Already suspended from Edo State’s APC, Oshiomhole is facing another trouble with the Governors’ Forum, who called for the convening of a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting or his resignation.

INEC Clears APC For Bayelsa Gubernatorial Election

Published

Secretary

The All Progressive Congress (APC), has been cleared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to participate in the governorship election in Bayelsa State slated for Saturday.

INEC spokesperson, Festus Okoye, confirmed the party’s participation to Premium Times on Friday.

Recall that a Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa had ruled on Thursday that the APC governorship primaries in Bayelsa was conducted arbitrarily outside the rules of the party.

According to the court, the primaries which held on September 4 was thus null and void.

The court consequently nullified the nomination of David Lyon as APC’s candidate in a suit filed by Heineken Lokpobiri, one of the aspirants that sought the party’s ticket.

Prior to that, a Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday disqualified APC’s Bayelsa deputy governorship candidate, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, from participating in the election.

Mr Degi-Eremienyo was disqualified on grounds that he provided conflicting information on the documents he presented to INEC.

Mr Okoye, however, said that the courts only voided the candidacies of the two flagbearers, adding that the rulings did not stop them from including APC in the ballot papers.

APC will participate in the election in Bayelsa State. Court ruling does not say APC should not participate in the election. APC will be on the ballot paper. The court only says the two candidates are not eligible. But we don’t have candidates on the ballot papers. We only have logos of parties and those are what will be there.

“All the sensitive materials are already leaving the Central Bank (in Yenagoa) for the RACs,” he said.
