Saraki said “We have all seen how the last four years have gone. It is time for Nigerians across the nation to choose economic growth over poverty.

“Choose security over the growing and fast spreading insecurity; and choose competent leadership over leadership that is outdated.

“If you have ever questioned if Nigeria can be better, coming out to vote and bringing your friends and relatives who have PVCs out to vote next Saturday will be your answer.

“It is not enough to tweet about this government or share WhatsApp broadcasts, the time has come for all Nigerians to take their future in their hands and vote for visionary leaders, Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, and the PDP slate of candidates who are promising a Better Nigeria and are ready to make Nigeria work again.

“The more people that come out to vote, the less likely it is for those that want to manipulate the results to do so — its a simple mathematics. It is the numbers of registered voters who failed to come out and vote that the riggers seek to manipulate in inflating votes for a candidate or group of candidates.

“I urge you all, take this election seriously, and together, we can make history together by saving Nigeria’s future.”

The presidential election is scheduled to hold on Saturday, February 16, 2019.

National Assembly can reorganize Nigeria, I believe in devolution of powers- Muhammadu Buhari

Published

on

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that  the issues of reorganizing the country can only be dealt with by the National Assembly.

Buhari described reorganizing as a serious issue, adding that in whichever forms it comes be it true federalism or devolution of powers, it remains a constitutional matter.

The President, however, talked on devolving more power to the people.

 

Buhari said this when he accepted members of the Nigerian Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) led by Co-Chairmen, Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar and President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Samson Supo Ayokunle, at the State House on Friday.

“On the contentious issue of restructuring or true federalism or devolution of powers, like you all know, this is a constitutional matter with which only the National Assembly can deal.

“I remain an unapologetic believer in devolving power to the people and that is why I signed the Executive Order granting autonomy to State Legislature and Judiciary,” Buhari said.

Buhari pointed out that autonomy to State Legislature and Judiciary met with some resistance at the state level, leading to a more than two months’ strike action that has cost the country so much.

 

Buhari said that he believes and hopes that the review of the constitution previously going on at the National Assembly would treat some of the agitating issues in the minds of our people.

COALITION OF CONCERNED IRU – VICTORIA ISLAND RESIDENTS

 

IRU VICTORIA ISLAND 2021

APOCALYPSE SET TO LOOM THE RULING
ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS IN IRU V/I LAGOS BASED ON CERTIFICATE FORGERY BY THE INCUMBENT CHAIRMAN OF IRU VICTORIA ISLAND LCDA.

Opposition parties set to hijack Lagos using Iru- Victoria Island LCDA

APC IS SITTING ON A KEG OF GUN POWDER IN LAGOS.

Attention Pls:
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu
Mr. Femi Pedro (Chairman screening)
Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwoolu
Dr. Obafemi Kadri Hamzat
Alh. Tunde Balogun
Oba. Gbolahan Lawal
Alh. Hon Omoba Murphy Adetoro

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.

A Chieftain of the All-Progressives Congress, who doubles as a serving Supervising Councillor for Budget & Planning Iru V.I Lcda and also Chairmanship Aspirant in the same Iru Victoria Island Hon. Akinwunmi Bayode also demanded the cancellation of the Saturday May 29 2021 APC PRIMARIES. He said it was a Shady primaries called election in Iru – Victoria Island area of Lagos State.

He called the *CHAIRMAN a CLOWN* and the primaries a sham, pre-arranged, hijacked and a total political fraud.

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…

WE ARE COALITION OF CONCERNED IRU – VICTORIA ISLAND RESIDENTS AND WE HAVE THE STRENGTH.

 

Signed:
COMRADE OLATUNDUN BOLAJI TAIWO
COALITION OF CONCERNED IRU – VICTORIA ISLAND RESIDENTS.
