Tinubu 2023 Presidency Would Be Illogical, Most Disruptive-Bode George

Published

on

The former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bode George has described a 2023 Tinubu presidency as illogical and most disruptive.

George said this during an interview with Punchng.com published on Sunday, February 16.

Bola Tinubu

“It would be the most illogical and most disruptive issue to have him (Tinubu) elected as President,” he said.

The PDP stalwart, who intends to contest the 2023 presidential election attacked Tinubu, adding he was throwing an open challenge to him.

George, who acknowledged the fact that PDP required remodelling and confirmed that the party would be beaten stupid at elections if it continues as it is, stated that if the PDP’s zoning formula for the presidency points to the South, it should be given to the Southeast because they have never had it, adding that if the name Tinubu pops up in the APC, he would go all out to contest with him.

He also said that he would dump Nigeria for Togo if the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, wins the presidential election in 2023.

“If this happens, I will disown Nigeria to take the citizenship of Togo or any other country. Look, what this fellow did in my state, all the lies and the most painful thing was that on the day of the election (2019 election) two bullion vans drove in the daylight to his house and what did Professor Itse Sagay say, that he (Tinubu) had been a very wealthy man before. Where was he wealthy?”

“Diri had cause to visit me before the elections and received my blessings and counsel.

“I am fully satisfied that he has what it takes to make Bayelsa the ‘glory of all lands. His intellect, personality, and character, are a credit to Bayelsa and the PDP,” he said.

“Finally, I urge the supreme court to show consistency in its judgments and find the resolve to always deliver just judgments no matter whose ox is gored.

“The people of Nigeria are behind the apex court in whatever they do to free themselves from the dominance of dictatorial forces,” he added.

Party Constitution Permits APC To Inaugurate CTC Where Needed, Eze Enlightens Aguma

Published

on

Aguma

…. Advises those seeking peace with him to forget the idea

…. Says Aguma Has Abused Amaechi’s Political Generosity To Him

Former Spokesman of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party, and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has offered a tip to Mr. Igochukwu Aguma, over his continued display of ignominious and stack ignorance in the express provisions of the party’s constitution, especially, the law, as regards the setting up of a Caretaker Committee to oversees the affairs of the party in a state, as is the case in Rivers State.

Igo Aguma had recently approached the court in Rivers State to stop scheduled Congresses of the APC in the state and to declare the NWC constituted Caretaker Committee of the party illegal.

In a recent interview, Igo Aguma, reiterated his position, stressing that the constitution of a CTC is alien to the party constitution and therefore illegal and a nullity. What a blunder.

Aguma’s reason for making such ridiculous, laughable, contemptuous and untutored remark cannot be hastily fathomed. It however, has some obvious undertone; it could be that Ugochukwu Aguma does not own a copy of the party’s constitution to peruse through or he is constantly in a state of cultural amnesia, or he is just ignorant and unteachable.

Having learnt that Aguma needs a rudimentary training on the workings of the party, I volunteer to tutor him a little bit on the position of the constitution of the All Progressives Congress, touching on the setting up of a CTC.

Article 13.4 (xvi) of the APC Constitution unambiguously provides thus:

“The National Working Committee SHALL have the POWER to set up a CARETAKER COMMITTEE in place of any organ where there exists in the opinion of the National Working Committee a lacuna by virtue of any act or omission done in furtherance of this Constitution.”

This is the position of the constitution and nothing more pretentious. While I counsel Igochukwu Aguma to withdraw his ignorance from public display and allow some peace in the Rivers APC, I urge those seeking peace  with him and his likes to be properly guided, as his reason for fighting the party has been made bare.

Eze finally reiterated that the plot to destroy and weaken APC in Rivers State by Aguma and his cronies and their misguided sponsors will come to nothing as Rivers State people are too knowledgeable to be deceived by their evil plot to dismantle and destroy the best political product ever from Rivers State in the person of Rt. Hon. Dr. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi.

Eze counsels Aguma to retrace his steps and allow peace to prevail in the party as his present position will surely nail his political fortunes and future and should understand that he is nothing politically without Amaechi no matter whatever those that don’t mean well for the State are telling him to continue to pursue a case he is sure that he will never win.
