Why PDP and APC disagree over Awolowo. A People’s Democratic Party chieftain in Ogun State, Chief Olukoye Ijaduoye, has said that presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), will not win in the state during next year’s presidential election. Ijuduoye said that Buhari’s military government brutalised Yourba sons upon assumption of power, stressing that the people of the region will not vote for the former Head of State on that account. The PDP chieftain, who spoke in Akure on Sunday said, “The people of Ogun State and the entire South-West will reject the former dictator with our votes for detaining Chief Obafemi Awolowo.” Ijaduoye also lamented the detention of a former governor of the state, the late Chief Bisi Onabanjo.

The crisis in All Progressives Congress in Ogun State deepened on Sunday as one of the special advisers to the Governor Ibikunle Amosun, Mrs. Abimbola Lanre-Balogun; defected to the Peoples Democratic Party. Lanre-Balogun, was Special Adviser on Environment to the governor until Thursday last week, when she resigned her appointment. Explaining the reason for her defection, at a PDP stakeholders meeting at the Goodluck Jonathan Political Centre in Ijebu-Igbo, Lanre- Balogun, said she was tired of enduring the style of governance being adopted by Amosun, which she described as “family affair.” She further alleged that Amosun was “running a government of me, myself and my family.” Lanre-Balogun told journalists shortly after her defection that her passion to work for the good people of the state necessitated the action, alleging that the Amosun-led administration had made her redundant. She said, “I have been in this government (Amosun’s) since inception. I was sworn in as Special Adviser on Envi ...

Those responsible for insurgency should be identified –Kaka by AYO ESAN | Sunday Mirror Newspaper May 18th 2014 | Pages 10&55 Alhaji Adegbenga Sefi u Kaka is the Senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District. In this interview with Ayo Esan, he speaks about the crisis rocking the Ogun State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC; the insecurity facing the country and the ongoing National Conference, among others. Excerpts: How do you see the crisis in Ogun State Chapter of All Progressives Congress, which has lingered for almost fi ve months or more? Maybe, it’s misunderstanding or whatever. So far, so good. It has resulted in what some people are referring to as parallel congresses and we are only hoping that the National Executive Committee, NEC, will come in appropriately to ensure that all the rough edges are smoothened so that we would be able to emerge from the crisis stronger as a united political family. That is what we are waiting for. But some of your members who are aggrieved a ...
2015: NIGERIA WILL BE RESCUED FROM THE HANDS OF CLUELESS PDP SAYS TINUBU National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, said the party would not falter in its legitimate struggle to “rescue Nigeria” from the “rudderless and clueless” Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) government at the centre come 2015. “There was a time I was alone, but today we have 16 governors on a rescue boat. We shall rescue Nigeria as a whole. We shall succeed in this crusade to save Nigeria. As Moses crossed the Red Sea, no going back to Pharaoh again. “The PDP-led administration at the centre is demolishing democratic structures without any plan to rebuild it.” Tinubu, who gave the assurance while speaking during a traditional function in Ogun State on Saturday, stressed that the progressives would provide the country with “purposeful and quality leadership” needed to pull it away from the brink. Speaking on the resolve of the Progressives to develop Nigeria, Tinubu said, “We will prov ...
Since the outbreak of the civil war in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), there has been unease in some quarters (at times openly expressed) that unless the crisis is resolved in time, it may lead to disintegration of the Federal Republic. That is cheap blackmail unconsciously or even deliberately aimed at reducing the Nigerian Federation to mere PDP.   Nigerians must, therefore, be bold enough to resist any idea that PDP is Nigeria to the extent that anytime there is a crack, it must be patched at whatever cost. The PDP is just one of the numerous political parties in Nigeria and if the party dies, the Nigerian Federation will stay afloat.   The raging civil war in PDP is like a time bomb due, all along, to explode at one time or another. There was no way the party could have continued in its previous form indefinitely. Neither would the party return to its business as before. If ever there were some altruistic ones among them, such were overwhelmed by the others (the majority), who c ...

Obasanjo Calls Okorocha A Failure: Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is known for not letting people go scot free if he feels insulted by their words or actions. A show of his person came again on Saturday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital when he described Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha as a failure. Obasanjo said this just as the Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, likened the current crisis rocking the ruling party as a “surgery” which must bring some pain to members. Obasanjo who was responding to guests who spoke during the grand finale of a civic reception organised in his honour by the South West Zone of the PDP said there was no way he could associate with Okorocha who had jokingly referred to the former President as his “colleague.” The Imo governor had earlier in his speech talked about his days as Special Adviser on Inter-Party Affairs to Obasanjo, saying he gave the ex-President advice that resulted in the good decisions that Obasanjo took while i ...

Already, the groups loyal to former Governor Gbenga Daniel; former Minister of Commerce, Senator Jubril Martins-Kuye, and party financier, Mr. Buruji Kashamu, met on Saturday in Lagos and Sunday in Ijebu Igbo, Ogun State.

Jonathan, Obasanjo part ways? The emergence of President Goodluck Jonathan on the highest seat in the land has been largely credited to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, but the frosty relationship between the duo in the last one year is giving their loyalists a cause for worry, It took the surprise visit of the Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, to the hilltop residence of former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta, Ogun State, to arouse any suspicion that indeed, all may not be well between President Goodluck Jonathan and Obasanjo. A further proof that Obasanjo may have distanced himself from the president was the widely reported outcome of the meeting between the former president and former military leader, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, in Abuja. A joint statement issued by the two former leaders had suggested on the way forward to addressing the incessant security challenges in the country, while albeit insinuating that the president seems incapable of providing the right leadership at th ...
“Wolf Crying As Tactics Won’t Help You”, Lagos ACN Tells PDP The Lagos State chapter of the Action Congress of Nigeria has lambasted the People’s Democratic Party for its criticism of the conduct of the Local Government election in Ogun State. The party says that the PDP is on a fool’s voyage if it feels that deliberately crying wolf whenever they lose election where it has no foothold would make the ACN lease unearned space for it. In a release in Lagos, signed by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary of the ACN, Joe Igbokwe, the party says that the impending resolve of Nigerians to fight electoral fraud is meeting the PDP at its very worst stage because the party cannot live outside electoral fraud. It advises the PDP to quit clowning and face the hard reality of impending extinction, which it brought on itself through monumental misrule, election rigging, gargantuan corruption and impunity. “It has become so fashionable these days for PDP to trade specious and outlandish claims that prove the ...

Good Morning: On my mind this morning is the GEJ Decision to RENAME UNILAG. GEJ’s advisers ought to have advised him to name the Democracy Day after Abiola if truly they believed that he was the martyr of democracy. Both former presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, a kinsman of Abiola from Ogun State; and the late President Umaru Yar’Adua had ignored calls forthe immortalisation of the late businessman who contested the 1993 poll on the platform of the defunct Social Democratic Party.
