We are remaining in APC – nPDP
Tue, 22 May 2018
Alhaji Kawu Baraje, Leader of the new Peoples’ Democratic Party (nPDP) which fused with the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said that the group will remain in the ruling party.
He stated this on Monday in Abuja while speaking with newsmen after a closed-door meeting with the members of APC’s National Working Committee (NWC).
 
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Baraje and the group recently submitted a four-page letter of grievances to the APC leadership and gave it seven days to address the issues.
The group alleged that its members had been badly treated, sidelined and persecuted in the APC.
Baraje told newsmen that the group had begun sorting out its grievances with APC leadership.
“As you are aware, we requested to see the party leadership, and the party, very sensitive and responsible, responded to our requests adequately and we think it is a very encouraging time,” he said.

He explained that the leadership got across to the group last week, asking for a meeting which could not hold because of some logistics.

“We couldn’t come until today; we begged the party to shift the day till today and today we have seen our party.
“We are party members, this office is ours; we have only come home to discuss those observations; the meeting was very beautiful,” he said.
Baraje, however, said that discussion of the issues would continue, explaining that “when talks begin, you can’t say it will end on a particular day, it goes on and on.
“It may please the party to say let’s shift the meeting to another venue to discuss with other stakeholders; so far, we have started talks.
“But, it is a good start, it is a good beginning,” he stressed.
On the splinter nPDP that recently countered his group’s demand on APC, Baraje said such was bound to happen in politics, adding that the group he represented was 95.9 per cent intact.

Tue, 22 May 2018
Ohaneze Ndigbo, a socio-cultural umbrella of Ndigbo, has called for the adoption of a six-year rotational single tenure for the president and governors of 36 states in the country.

These were some highlights of the resolutions tagged, “Ekwueme Square Declaration 2018’’, which members of Ohaneze Ndigbo reached during their one-day summit in Awka on Monday.
Prof. Charles Soludo, the Chairman, Planning and Strategy Committee and Organising Committee, read out the resolutions.
Soludo further said Ohaneze want the Federal Government to adopt the report of the 2014 National Conference.
He said that the resolution already ratified by all the component arms of Ohaneze, equally demand that the current Constitution of Nigeria, which he stated was the product of the military, be redrafted.
Soludo added that Ohaneze recommended that a constituent assembly for the drafting of a new constitution be constituted and thereafter a referendum be held, adding, “whatever recommendations of the group would be sent to National Assembly’’.
He said that group also demanded for the scrapping of state of origin and its replacement with residential rights whereby a Nigerian would have full right in any place he or she resides for 10 years.

On the six years single tenure, the group noted that six vice presidents from each of the six geo-political zones should be elected, while the governorship seat would be rotated among the senatorial districts.

On his part, Chief John Nwodo, the President-General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, said the summit was organised to enable Ndigbo articulate major challenges affecting the country.
Nwodo claimed that the present constitution of the country was skewed against Igbo people and should be redrafted to give Igbo peoplevfair treatment.
The Deputy Senate President, Chief Ike Ekweremadu, challenged the Ohaneze leadership to convince those yet to support the restructuring of the country to back the idea.
Ekweremadu assured that he would table any bill on the restructuring of the country whenever the Ohaneze present it at the national assembly.

Be ready to accept defeat, PDP tells Buhari
Tue, 22 May 2018
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to  be prepared to accept defeat in the 2019 general elections, claiming that all indices showed that Nigerians are no longer at home with him. The PDP in a statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, also claimed that ‎Buhari had not fulfilled his campaign promises, a situation which, he said, led to acute poverty, hunger and starvation in the country.
“This is in addition to his disconcerting aloofness to the plight of citizens, his failure to initiate and implement any development project in any party of the country and the refusal to fulfil the littlest of his 2015 campaign promises.
 
“Today, the electorate have come to terms with the fact that the promises by President Buhari and his APC are all a big scam. In fact, our investigations have revealed that President Buhari never intended to fulfil any of his promises. 
“It is a notorious fact that our dear nation and our citizens have not had it this bad since our independence in 1960, leading to the general indignation against the Buhari Presidency,” the statement said.
