R-APC National Assembly members plot mass defection July 31
Sun, 08 Jul 2018

BUY OR SELL OLD AND NEW CARS, PARTS, CAR MATERIALS AS CAR MART NG LAUNCH IN NIGERIA

Members of the All Progressives Congress in the Senate and House of Representatives may defect en mass to the Peoples Democratic Party shortly before July 31, SUNDAY PUNCH has gathered.

Investigations on Saturday showed that the Reformed All Progressives Congress split from the main APC, on Wednesday, was the first phase of the plot ahead of the mass defection.

It will be reminiscent of a similar mass defection by the new Peoples Democratic Party to the APC in the run-up to the 2015 polls in 2014.

Findings indicated that in spite of the belittling of the strength of the R-APC by the APC, many lawmakers were aggrieved and would leave the latter.

One senior source among the lawmakers told SUNDAY PUNCH that though he had chosen to stick with the APC for “personal reasons,” he was aware that many of his colleagues would spring a surprise soon.

Fighting with govs over 2019, power sharing cause of split

The source added, “A lot is happening but the whole truth is not being told by the APC. There is this impression that because the party has many supporters in the North-West, there is a guarantee for them.

“Members are not happy. Politics is about self interest. When governors collude with party officials to snatch the return tickets of members, you know they will seek survival elsewhere.

“Return ticket is the issue. In the APC, many of them have been told to forget 2019. If they will get it in PDP, then that is the aim of the planned mass defection. There are consultations across board and before the end of the month, they will make the defection come through.

“With the split, the R-APC has fulfilled the provision of Section 68(1)(g) of the 1999 Constitution. There are sufficient grounds to leave the APC today with the division created by the split.”

The section reads, “A member of the Senate or House of Representatives shall vacate his seat if “being a person whose election to the House was sponsored by a political party, he becomes a member of another political party before the expiration of the period for which that house was elected – PROVIDED that his membership of the latter political is not as a result of a division in the political party of which he was previously a member…”

It was learnt that as many as 80 Reps were on standby, in the first instance, to defect to join the alliance with the PDP.

The source added, “Take it or leave it, the APC can no longer beat its chest to say it has the loyalty of members in many states, particularly in the North-Central states, where herdsmen kill villagers at will, and with no action by the Federal Government.

“States like Plateau, Benue, Nasarawa, Kogi, Kwara, Taraba contributed in swinging the votes in favour of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

Ekiti poll: Tension rises as security deployment worries residents
Sun, 08 Jul 2018

Residents of Ekiti State have expressed deep concerns over the tension currently building up in the state following plans by the Federal Government to deploy about 30, 000 security personnel for the Saturday’s governorship election.

A cross-section of stakeholders, who spoke to our correspondent, said the development was heightening tension and creating fears in the minds of the people.

A commercial car operator in Ikere, Ajibola Idowu, described the idea of moving such large number of security agents to the state as ill-advised, arguing that it would automatically give an impression that there would be unavoidable clashes on Election Day.

He said, “I have made up my mind to relocate my family members to Ita-Ogbolu in Ondo State on Thursday so that they can stay with my sister there. Nobody can guarantee that security men will not maltreat innocent people before or during the election.”

A trader in Akure, Mrs. Bisola Ilesanmi, said the security operatives would want to justify the essence of their deployment by creating tension.

[better-ads type=”banner” banner=”13566″ campaign=”none” count=”2″ columns=”1″ orderby=”rand” order=”ASC” align=”center” show-caption=”1″][/better-ads]

“Many of them can even decide to harass law abiding residents as a result of overzealousness just to impress their bosses that they are working,” she stated.

A 70-year-old retired headmaster, Mr. Ade Ashaolu, who lives in Oye-Ekiti, told our correspondent that he would remain indoors with his family throughout the day of the election.

He said, “My fear is that the politicians are too desperate to win this election and in such a situation, they would try to play smart. The heavily armed security personnel drafted to maintain peace may want to resist such illegality.
“Once that happens, some overzealous personnel may decide to embark on massive arrest and apprehend innocent people in the process.”

The Mega Party Chairman in Ekiti, Dare Adekolu, however welcome the idea of deploying security personnel to the state.

He said, “It is a good development if they are coming to secure live and property. You can only enjoy dividends of democracy when you are alive. What I will not support is when they resort to intimidation and harassment of the electorate.”

Forget 2019 elections if Ekiti gov poll is rigged ‘ Secondus
Sun, 08 Jul 2018

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus, speaks with OLUSOLA FABIYI on national issues, especially the governorship election in Ekiti State and security problems confronting the nation

A few days ago, the Presidency released the number of people killed as a result of insurgency and by herdsmen, claiming that more people were murdered when the PDP was in power than those killed in the last three years of the All Progressive Party government. What’s your reaction to this?

The primary duty of any government is to protect lives and property. Without safety, there would be no development. So, this government has failed in this area, which is the most critical of all its duties. It is worrisome that instead of waking up to its constitutional duties, it is busy comparing the government that has the worst case of avoidable killings than its own. That analogy is barbaric and it is absolutely wide off the mark. It is sad that the government is politicising killings in this country.

Politics apart, do you agree that more people were actually killed when the PDP was in power or not?

If we go back down memory lane, it was only in the North-East and Borno State, in particular, that we had security problems. But now, things have gone worse. The killings are going on unchallenged everywhere. From Plateau to Benue, from Zamfara to Kogi, from Adamawa to Borno, people are being killed and the Presidency is busy taking inventory of its citizens killed under its leadership. Is that not shameful and ungodly? For any government to do any comparison is a total failure on its part.

Can the killings be stopped at all?

From 2015, we can see that the President appointed his cronies to sensitive security positions as service chiefs. You can see the display of nepotism, display of loyalty to the President instead of Nigeria. That means the security architecture that he came on board with has completely failed. Things must change. Governors have called for a change; the National Assembly has called for a change and eminent Nigerians and even ordinary people on the streets have called for a radical change.

Is the President listening?

He seems not to be perturbed. So, something is off beam. This is why I’m calling for an international inquest into the killings so that the international community can come unbiased. This is because the Federal Government has started blaming politicians for the killings. This is the same government that said the killers are from Libya, and that they are part of Boko Haram. They have now changed the narrative. They are now saying politicians are herdsmen. It is just a mere ploy to frame politicians and get them locked up. They even do that to members of their political party who do not share their ideas. They are doing that to us as well. They have left the substance and are now diverting attention from the truth. This country has collapsed in the hands of the President.
