The pan-Yoruba socio political organisation, Afenifere, has backed former President Olusegun Obasanjo on the need to work together to birth of a new Nigeria in 2019.
Obasanjo specifically asked for Afenifere’s support during a private visit to its leader, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, at his residence in Akure, Ondo State, yesterday.
The former president urged Afenifere to ensure that they play vital roles in Nigeria’s rebirth, through the 2019 general election.
 
His visit to Fasoranti’s residence came two weeks after the collapse of his political pressure group, Coalition for Nigerian Movement, (CNM) into the African Democratic Congress (ADC)
Obasanjo noted that  Afenifere has been in the forefront of fighting for the interest of the Yoruba nation while he has been working towards the interest of the country as a whole.

The former president recalled how he visited the leadership of the group some 20 years ago, seeking their support for his election but said he was rejected by the group.

He said: “I remember visiting Pa Abraham Adesanya thrice in Lagos, before the election, and I was asked to join Afenifere and the Alliance for Democracy (AD) then, but, I told them that the AD was not my choice of political party.
“Pa Adesanya told me if I joined, things would change but I refused to join them.
“I went back the second time but they refused to work for my emergence.
“I went there, again, the third time, but, Afenifere maintained their stand; they refused to vote for me but I secured my votes outside Yorubaland, although they supported me in 2003; for my re-election.”

Former governor of Edo State and aspirant for the national chairmanship of the ruling All Progressives Party (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has visited former governor of Abia State and chieftain of the party, Dr. Orji Uzo Kalu, with a promise to strengthen the organs of the party.
APC, said Oshiomhole, should be a party with an identity and a character with core values that will be a yardstick for whoever is coming from other parties.
 
Oshiomhole made this declaration when he paid a courtesy call on Kalu, who, in turn, assured him of his support, so long as his ambition enjoys the support of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“You are a strong candidate, we shall continue to pray that you prevail, but, any one who will not support president Muhammadu Buhari, who has offered to continue his service to this nation, I will not support. I will only support whomever Mr. President supports,” Kalu said.
Oshiomhole admitted that the former Abia state governor is a strong politician with the capacity to mobilise delegates, hence, the need to pay him a visit.
“You are a delegate on your right and you have the capacity to mobilise. You are doing this in the business world which everybody can see. If I have your support, I know I will have the votes of several others,” the former governor said.

He noted that APC, as the party in power, at the centre, should provide the lead for other parties but that the leadership to make such happen is lacking, as what the party could offer by its present leadership is a mere platform for elections.
“We need party leaders that can negotiate and protect weak members.
“I believe we need leaders like you, I believe we can work with you to make our party great.
“With leaders like you, people should know where APC stands; we should be able to say no to people who are coming from outside, who do not believe in what the party stands for,” he told the former governor.
Oshiomhole said it is not in the interest of the leadership of the party to be lukewarm when institutions like the National Assembly and the Executive are having issues, and assured that under his leadership, the APC will stop being a spectator.
He added that the party under him will rally support for the president to offer the nation good governance, and commended the doggedness of Kalu, as Abia state governor, which ensured that that there was no face-off with labour unions in his eight-year rule.

A coalition of Arewa youths has called on President Muhammadu Buhari and former vice president, Atiku Abubakar not to contest the 2019 presidential election.
The group said the duo should rather leave the stage for more competent, younger persons between the ages of 18-60 years to contest and steer the affairs of the country.
In a communique issued at the end of a two-day summit in Kaduna, and read by the group’s spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, it noted that it is not the first time they would advise people in their 70s and above, particularly, President Buhari, to quit the presidential stage for younger generations.

“We have advised him (Buhari) to look for a younger person who has the same integrity like his to run for the presidency.
“Anybody above 70 years of age should give way to the younger generation.”
The Arewa youths also urged that the recommendations of the committees set up by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Northern Governors Forum on restructuring be “discredited and abandoned.”
The communiqué said its advice to Buhari and Abubakar is in recognition of the reality that Nigerians, within the age bracket of 70 years and above have “participated in debates which gave birth to the current national arrangement that is largely acknowledged as having failed our national aspirations.”
The communique further said: “This is in recognition of the reality that Nigerians within this age bracket are growing worried that the nation has not fared well by being on the same political and economic lanes for 58 years (1960-date), resulting in no meaningful developmental impact.
 
This shall, therefore, eventually form the cornerstone for a platform for Nigeria to deliberate, decide, design and develop a roadmap for an ultimate generational power transition.
“Frustrated young Nigerians, having paid their dues in the national developmental effort, have been left to suffer the suffocating consequences of the prevailing exclusive and defeatist leadership selection process being imposed on the country over the years, by successive ruling elite.
“It is time they formed a rallying point from which younger Nigerians can make a strong demand for a new political order, to usher in a generational power shift, as  reparation for past marginalisation in the nation’s political leadership.”
It also frowned at, “the mistake about to be committed by the present crop of northern political leaders in accepting a proposal that could mortgage the region’s coIlective interest and its future.
