Buhari has scared and bothered the private segment, assaulted the National Assembly and now illegally and rashly assaulted and threatened the legal executive to dairy animals them to accommodation.
“I was a casualty of Abacha’s monstrosities against Nigeria and Nigerians – high and low. At the stature of Abacha’s urgency for unending force, he didn’t stream any analysis since Nigeria was viewed as his own property.
“You should oblige him or be demolished. All establishments for guaranteeing security, welfare and prosperity of Nigeria and Nigerians especially the police, the military and the Department of State Services were manhandled and abused to manage faultfinders of Abacha and non-conventionalists with Abacha.

The EFCC, the police and the Code of Conduct Tribunal are additionally being similarly abused to manage those Buhari sees as adversaries for scrutinizing him or as the individuals who may not do his offering in controlling decision results. Analysis, decision and being distinctive are characteristic trademarks of majority rules system. On the off chance that majority rules system is wrecked or prematurely ended, rebellion and dictatorship will consequently pursue.
“Today, as in the day of Abacha, Nigerians must ascent up and do what they did in the season of Abacha. Holy places and Mosques implored. Worldwide people group remained by us Nigerians.
“Divine force of Nigeria is a living God and a supplication noting God. Nigerians must shout out to God to convey Nigeria. Here once more, I have been compromised with capture and eradication however I won’t surrender to terrorizing or dangers.”

He encouraged Nigerians to prevent INEC from wrecking the vote based system through its activity.
“The reputation of the present INEC is genuinely corrupt and all people of altruism and devotees to majority rule government must be set up for the most exceedingly bad from INEC and their encouragers and how to get Nigeria out of the constituent slough that the commission is driving us into. To be cautioned is to be forearmed. A fight since quite a while ago admonished does not entangle the disabled person nor get him unprepared,” he said.
The previous President likewise approached the worldwide network to oppose Buhari’s supposed arrangement to fix the coming races.

It is the sole reason he has explicitly declined to sign the modified Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill into law.
“His colleagues are working nonstop in cahoots with security and decision authorities to consummate their arrangement by processing results ideal from the ward to neighborhood government, state and national dimensions to apportion him with what will resemble an avalanche triumph regardless of the genuine circumstance for a competitor who may have completed as a substitute presidential discussion and battles.”
He, in any case, educated the Chairman regarding INEC, Prof. Yakub Mahmood, to stand firm and complete his obligations with fitness and rigid lack of bias.
Talking on the disputable INEC official, Amina Zakari, Obasanjo said the lady had turned out to be too questionable a figure to have the capacity to give affirmation of free, reasonable and believable races for INEC.
We are examining the article – INEC
Whenever reached, the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi, stated, “(Response) not quickly my sibling. We are considering the paper and we will react fittingly at the correct time.”

He can’t envision it is feasible for a legislature to permit INEC the statutory freedom that it has.”

On the off chance that someone had said the race would be a ‘do-or-pass on’ undertaking and it was ‘do-or-bite the dust’ issue and the recipient of that race turned out to state that the decision that conveyed him to control was damaged; presently for that individual to claim that races were not going to be free and reasonable, would they say they were free and reasonable when he led his own?”
On the charge that the security emergency in the nation was disintegrating, Adesina stated, “Under Obasanjo was the point at which we had the Odi slaughter; under him was the point at which we had the Zaki Biam slaughter; under him there were bunches of conflicts including the OPC and other ethnic gatherings, there were Shari’ah revolts under him, and a great many lives were lost even under his organization.”
Additionally, in an announcement by another media helper to Buhari, Garba Shehu, the Presidency said Obasanjo required “a great specialist for good treatment and to state to him, “Get well soon.”

Be that as it may, I have additionally tested Buhari and the hoodlums around him to set up a test on similar charges and I will face such a test openly. In any case, I realize that these hoodlums can’t withstand a police request not to mention clinical test on the past open workplaces they held. My intense supplication is that President Buhari may live to see the will and motivation behind God for Nigeria.”
He, be that as it may, lauded the President for respecting well known objection “to give the previous Inspector-A chance to general of Police, Ibrahim Idris, go.”

WHY SHOULD THE RULING ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS A SACRED AND HIGHLY REVERENED PARTY ENCOURAGE CERTIFICATE FORGERY IN IRU-VICTORIA ISLAND LAGOS AND EXPECT TO WIN?
THIS HAPPENED 2017 IN IRU VICTORIA ISLAND LAGOS AND IT`S NOT POSSIBLE AGAIN IN 2021; BECAUSE WE WONT FOLD OUR ARMS TO SEE IT REOCCUR.
IT IS CALLED BROAD DAY POLITICAL ROBERY.
THE RULING PARTY ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS SHOULD REMEMBER THAT *“ENDSARS* – *END BAD GOVERNANCE“* ISSUE IS STILL VERY FRESH IN THE MIND OF OUR PEOPLE AND *UNFORTUNATELY LEKKI TOLL GATE* IN IRU VICTORIA ISLAND WAS THE *MASSACRE POINT.*
DESPITE ALL THAT WAS DONE WITHIN IRU VICTORIA ISLAND LCDA DURING THE *“ENDSARS* – *END BAD GOVERNANCE* *PROTEST“,* OUR CHAIRMAN BECAUSE OF HER LOW LEVEL OF EDUCATION, EXPOSURE AND UNDERSTANDING COULDN’T ADDRESS A PRESS CONFERENCE OR EVEN APPEAL TO THE YOUTH.
WE ARE NOT AGAINST THE DECISION OF THE PARTY TO RETURN HER FOR 2ND TERM, WE ARE ONLY CONCERNED ABOUT HER CREDIBILITY AND INTEGRITY.
IT IS OPTIMUMLY CLEAR THAT SOMEONE WHO FORGED HER CERTIFICATE TO BECOME CHAIRMAN OVER US IN 2017 WOULD DO WORST IN 2021.
FOUR YEARS IN OFFICE AS CHAIRMAN OF IRU VICTORIA ISLAND AN AFFLUENT AREA, THE MAIN BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL CENTRE OF LAGOS STATE, NIGERIA.
VICTORIA ISLAND IS ONE OF THE MOST EXCLUSIVE AND EXPENSIVE AREA TO RESIDE IN LAGOS, WE CAN’T CONTINUE TO BE FOOLED BY A SET OF MICRO SCOPIC MINORITY BECAUSE OF PERSONAL INTEREST.
FORGERY IS CONSIDERED A FELONY: THIS IS AN ACT PUNISHABLE BY A RANGE OF PENALTIES INCLUDING JAIL OR PRISON TERM, SIGNIFICANT FINES, PROBATIONS AND DISQUALIFICATIONS.
WHY MUST THE CASE BE DIFFERENT IN IRU VICTORIA ISLAND?
HON RASHEDAT ADU THE INCUMBENT CHAIRMAN IRU – VICTORIA ISLAND LAGOS ALLEGATION OF CERTIFICATE FORGERY, IMPOSITION OF UNQUALIFIED CANDIDATE AGAINST THE POPULAR & CREDIBLE CANDIDATES BY APC LEADERS ARE TOP ON THE LIST OF MANY ISSUES ON GROUND IN IRU VICTORIA ISLAND AHEAD OF THE FORTH COMING LOCAL GOVERNMENT & LOCAL COUNCILS ELECTION IN LAGOS.

He also mentioned the issue of certificate forgery by the incumbent Chairman of Iru Victoria Island LCDA Hon. Princess Rashedat Adu.
He pointed two former local government Chairmen ( *CHIEF RILWAN ALESHINLOYE & ABAYOMI DARAMOLA* ) who are supposed to be seen as Fathers, fountain of wisdom and peace shocked us by descending to the lowest level of thuggery with violent behaviours.
This is another vital issue.
The Chairman forged certificate succeeded in 2017 but she cannot escape the hammer now in 2021 as *Security agencies are already close on her and her* collaborators.
The party leadership should do the needful by disqualifying her and declare any other successfully screened and credible candidates within the Party.
We must not allow local champions, warlords and cultists to have control of APC in Iru Victoria Island.
This will expose the ruling party to more political dangers.
More also the party must be aware that other Political parties are watching and waiting for this apocalypse to loom the ruling All Progressives Congress for them to leverage on to canvass, cajole and win any election.
It is better the Leadership of the party APC look into this before its too late…
