24 Hours After MoU, PDM, 19 Others Disown Coalition
Wed, 11 Jul 2018

Barely 24 hours after the major opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and 34 other political parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to wrestle power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), some of the parties in the PDP list have distanced themselves from the opposition coalition. On Monday, 39 opposition political parties were said to have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to field a single candidate for the 2019 presidential election.

The political the parties under the aegis of Coalition of Unity Political Parties (CUPP) also resolved to enter into a covenant with the Nigerian people by commencing work on a blueprint manifesto. But some of the political parties, including the People’s Democratic Movement (PDM) and Accord Party (AP) yesterday disowned the PDP coalition, alleging that they were fraudulently included in the list to deceive Nigerians. Accordingly, a total of 20 political parties under the auspices of Coalition for Progressives Political Parties (CPPP) have formed an alliance to back President Muhammadu Bihari’s re-election bid.

Addressing journalists yesterday in Abuja, chairman of PDM, Alhaji Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim, said the CPPP coalition is “made up of like mind political parties who believe in the unity and stability of the country”. He noted that the coalition which was formed in 2014 ahead of the 2015 presidential election aligned with the presidential candidature of the current president, emphasising that the coalition was resurrected to counter the “orchestrated PDP coalition” against the APC-led government. While berating the PDP coalition, he stated that the parties were driven by selfishness and hunger to capture power in 2019.

He explained that the 20 parties that formed the coalition and those who abstained from the PDP charade believed in the drive to building a new Nigeria. The PDM chairman alleged that most of the parties in the PDP list were fraudulently included to sign the MoU to deceive Nigerians. He noted that, while the Accord Party chairman, himself and other parties abstained from the PDP meeting, their party names were found on the list without their consent. Noting that this alone raises doubt about the credibility of the coalition, he said, “, we woke to a new development where PDP outside power has now managed to create another coalition. As facts continue to emerge, they listed 36 political parties. Our analysis of that coalition reveals that a number of political parties were included in that coalition fraudulently.

“Part of the 42 political parties they listed is Accord party and the chairman of the party is here with us. If you are creating a coalition, you need to be honest about it as to who and who are members of the coalition. “As of today, the membership of that coalition is in doubt. Two members also listed at that coalition are here. We are not part of that coalition because we represent a type of politics, which is in total contradiction of what they are doing. “We do not believe that our country should be governed by people whose only objective is to capture power. Of what purpose is that coalition built? Is it for the purpose of taking Nigeria back to 1999 and 2015 or is it for the purpose of building a new Nigeria? “That purpose has not been stated, even in their memorandum. The only thing in their MoU is to agree to capture power in 2019. Their programme has not been made known to the Nigerian public. We will not be part of a coalition that does not have a programme for Nigeria.”

Herders / Farmers Clash Political Blackmail Against Me – PMB
Wed, 11 Jul 2018

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday accused politicians of using the various clashes between herdsmen and farmers across the country to blackmail him. He, however, promised that the federal government was putting in place measures that would bring a lasting solution to the clashes. The president made this comment yesterday at the All Progressives Congress grand rally held in Ado Ekiti ahead of Saturday’s gubernatorial election in Ekiti State. He said, “On the herders/farmers’ clashes, many people have been blackmailing me about it. But I can tell you that measures are being taken to ensure lasting solution.”

The president also expressed delight to be in the midst of Ekiti people. “Ekiti people are dear to me. My interaction with Ekiti State dates back to decades ago and I have always known them to be people of discipline and integrity,” he said. President Buhari, who described Ekiti people as honourable and intelligent, urged them to embrace the change agenda of APC.
He said the APC-led federal government under his leadership had executed many projects in the state to generate employment and put food on the table of the residents of the state.
He declared that the federal government had initiated and almost completed 13 projects in Ekiti State, valued at about N766 billion, including the Ikere-Ekiti road, the Ifaki-Ikole-Omuo road, the Ifaki-Ido road and the rehabilitation of the Ifaki-Otun Ekiti road, adding that the contract for a federal secretariat in Ekiti State had been awarded to accommodate federal workers in the state.
He said, “Several other roads, including Ado-Ifaki, Efon Alaaye-Erinmo-Iwaraja were rehabilitated. The federal secretariat complex, national housing programmes of the federal government are ongoing. These have provided gainful employment for the people of the state.

“Our social intervention schemes, like N-Power, the school feeding programmes and micro credit are also in place; this we do without putting into consideration the political affiliation of the state.” President Buhari restated the commitment of his administration to the security of lives and property of all Nigerians. While urging Ekiti people to vote for APC and its governorship candidate, Dr Kayode Fayemi in next Saturday’s election, the president said with him (Fayemi), “a meaningful development is guaranteed.” Buhari continued: “Despite that the government in Ekiti and the federal government belong to different parties, the APC administration has ensured that Ekiti got its fair share of allocation from the federation account. Don’t allow yourselves to be bought over by stomach infrastructure.

“Your future and the future of the generation yet unborn is in your hand; you must vote aright and not get carried away by the stomach infrastructure they are offering you. Don’t waste your votes on Saturday, vote for Fayemi.” The grand rally, which was the first major national assignment undertaken by the APC new national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, was witnessed by the APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; Chief Bisi Akande, 11 APC governors, among who were the governors of Zamfara, Adamawa, Niger, Kogi, Oyo, Ogun, Ondo, Kebbi, Borno and Nasarawa states, Atiku Bagudu, Jibrilla Bindow, Yahaya Bello, Abiola Ajimobi, Ibikunle Amosun, Rauf Aregbesola, Rotimi Akeredolu, Atiku Bagudu, Kashim Shettima and Tanko Al-Makura respectively. The governors of Bauchi and Edo states were represented by their deputies, Audu Sule Katagum and Phillips Shuaibu, respectively. Ministers in attendance include those of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige; Transport, Rotimi Amaechi; Mining and Steel Development, Bawa Bwari; Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu; Interior, Abdulrahaman Danbazzau; Works, Power and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, and Communications, Adebayo Shittu.
