The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has made clear their readiness to turn things around come 2023.
This is even as the party’s National Publicity Secretary; Kola Ologbondiyan said the former ruling party was ready to take over power through the ballot box in 2023.
This declaration was made by Ologbondiyan while appearing on Arise Television.
He added that the challenges of banditry, kidnapping and terrorism are a clear indication that Nigeria needs to be rescued.
In his words; “Our party is the hope of Nigerians as we speak today. The acts of terrorism, banditry and kidnapping have subsumed our nation.
“It shows clearly that Nigerians are thinking of who will rescue our nation.
“The PDP is ready and prepared to take over the mantle of leadership through the ballot box in 2023.” He concluded.
Nigeria Has Become A Giant Killing Field – PDP
The National Caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has decried the current security situation in the country, saying Nigeria has become a giant killing field.
In a communique read by the national chairman of the party after a meeting of the caucus at the Akwa Ibom Governors’ Lodge in Abuja, the party said Nigeria was fast descending into anarchy, with the security of lives and property “practically non-existent.”
“Terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling, rape, arson, mindless murder of citizens and even security agents are ravaging the land. Criminals have taken complete control of most aspects of our lives unchecked. The government seems powerless to act. Nigeria has become one giant killing field.
“The meeting also noted the unrestricted expansion of Boko Haram into newer and inner territories close to the seat of government in Abuja and expressed alarm at the capitulation of the security agencies and President Muhamadu Buhari’s APC government. In the view of the meeting, President Buhari has failed the people at a time of grave national crises,’’ part of the communiqué reads.
Makinde vows to recover money from failed contractors
The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has announced on Friday that his administration would track state contracts and recover state funds in the hands of contractors who failed to deliver projects.
The governor made his intention known during an inspection tour of the newly renovated Jericho Nursing Home, Jericho, Ibadan, stating that the previous contractor handling the project did not complete the work.
According to him, under no circumstances would he allow the state’s fund to be frittered away. He said his administration would ensure that the people of the state get the desired value for their money.
He said, “Every kobo of Oyo State money that people have taken without delivering value to the people, they will give it back to us.
“Well, for the ones that we did, yes I am satisfied. But the previous contractor, we can all see, did not finish the work.
“We went round to look at the transformer but it is not yet energised and it is just really unacceptable. People may think we are not going to go after them but I can give you the assurance that we will.
“Basically, I am here to see the renovation work that has gone on in here and also listen to them about the challenges they are having.
“As you probably must have known, health is one of the major pillars of this administration. We have to keep working to ensure that the health care in Oyo State is well delivered.”
Presidency responds to Mbaka, Angry, He Didn’t Get Contracts
The presidency has responded to the comments on the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari by Father Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry Enugu, saying the cleric had demanded the resignation of Buhari because he couldn’t get contracts from the administration.
Mbaka in a video that had gone viral, said Buhari has failed Nigeria woefully and that he should resign or be impeached by members of the National Assembly.
He also warned members of the National Assembly that if they fail to impeach President Buhari and “they begin to fight Father Mbaka, something worse than what they ever imagined will befall them.”
However, Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, in a statement said Father Mbaka had asked for contracts as compensation for his support for Buhari’s election when he visited the president.
Shehu said the refusal of the president to accede to Father Mbaka’s pecuniary demands necessitated his recent outbursts.
He said, “an outsider distilling the avalanche of verbiage, will be surprised that after supporting the President two times to win the presidency, Father Mbaka has made a complete U-Turn, preposterously asking President Buhari to resign or be impeached.
“Here is the point of departure: Father Mbaka asked for a meeting and to the shock of Presidential Aides, he came accompanied by three contractors. The President graciously allowed them in, and to everyone’s surprise, Father Mbaka asked for contracts as compensation for his support.
“Anyone familiar with President Buhari knows that he doesn’t break the laid down rules in dealing with contracts or any other government business for that matter. He requested the appropriate authorities to deal with the matter in accordance with laid down rules.
“Inside the Villa, discretion prevailed, that if those pictures and requests were made public, the followers will turn against the religious leader. None of it was released. Now, this is what is eating Father Mbaka,” he added.
