National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has been nominated to recieve fellowship award of the Federal Polytechnic, Bida, Niger state, having led his party to victory against the People Democratic Party (PDP) in the last general elections.

Revealing this Tuesday during a courtesy visit on the National Chairman, the Rector of the institution Dr. Abubakar Dzukogi, who led other management staff members to the APC house, also said Odigie-Oyegun’s choice was informed by many successes recorded by the APC-led administration.
“We have taken into consideration, your (Odigie-Oyegun) contribution to education generally, both in and outside government. But more significantly, being a national chairman of a party that brought in this government, it wasn’t an easy task but you succeeded because you are a master strategist. Having put in place this government, the government has been doing wonderfully well to the acceptance and admiration of Nigerians.
“For instance, in the area of security, it only in one or two places you hear the menace of Boko Haram and other security challenges. In the area of economy, this is a government that came when oil prices crashed, but as a result of various economic measures taken by this government, we are out of recession. The credit has gone to this government. Without your party producing people who can perform, we cannot be talking of achieving.”
Responding, Chief Oyegun who thanked his visitors for the honour bestowed on him, said despite difficulties and challenges, the President Muhammadu Buhari APC-led administration is delivering on its election promises.
He also said that president Buhari has been a focused President who can not be distracted by opposition parties in the country.
“I am particularly pleased by your recognition that inspite of difficulties, challenges the government of the APC is delivering on its promises to the Nigerian people. That is important for me and I really see this award as coming to me on behalf of the government and party. It is the passionate leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari that has made it impossible for opponents to distract and derail the administration.
“Yes, there are still challenges in the land, there is no question about it and as you rightly said, we took over in very difficult circumstances including a fundamental problem of the collapse of the price of crude oil. Conditions were such that we needed an extraordinary man of courage to be able to lead the country out the crisis that we inherited to the increasing economic stability and progress which this nation clearly is beginning to attain.”

The hostile political relationship between Kano state governor, Umar Ganduje and his predecessor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso is now a major cause of worry for Kano indigenes and Nigerians in general. However its effect have been seen rubbing off on the infamous Kano underage voting picture and videos which was circulating in the public sphere recently, hence threatening the integrity of the 2019 General Elections.
Though many Nigerians are in the know about the feud between the Ganduje and Kwankwaso, but AljazirahNigeria can reliably state that a lot of untold stories lies behind the pictures of underage voters which emerged after the Kano local government elections. So many intrigues, manipulation and blackmail are now threatening the 2019 election and the future of the nation’s democracy.
Our sources reveal that while the Ganduje camp avoided due process and intimidated opponents out of the race to get ‘100 percent votes’ at the council elections, the Kwankwaso camp made sure it did all it could to further harm the reputation of an already flawed process. Unfortunately, the infighting between both men in state is now a recipe for doubts on the integrity of the 2019 general elections.

Political Crack Between Gov Ganduje and Senator Kwankwaso:
Fight between one time god-father and god-son is no more a hidden secret, however to worsen the matter the duo’s security outfits and their stand offs have heightened the tension in the most populated city in Nigeria. In the February 10th local government election in the state, Kwankwaso camp feared the governor wanted to manipulate the polls in effort to take control of the party structure in the state. Hence two major security groups (Kwankwasiyya and Gandujiyya) are now established in Kano according to political followership.
Just in the last 24 hours Kano State Government trained 3,500 vigilance members on basic literacy and distributed uniforms worth over N200 million to various vigilance groups with a view to enhancetheir operations. Another move believed to be in line with Gov. Ganduje’s efforts in solidifying his footsoldiers
