821 jostle for 29 guber seats
Fri, 16 Nov 2018

No fewer than 821 candidates will vie for governorship seats in 29 states of the federation during the 2019 general elections, according to a tally by Daily Trust using the data published recently by the electoral commission.

Daily Trust reports that governorship elections will hold on March 2, 2019 in all but seven states across the country. The seven states are Anambra, Bayelsa, Edo, Ekiti, Kogi, Ondo, and Osun.

Though the two leading parties – the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) – are expected to dominate the polls because of their spread and resources, other parties will likely spring surprises.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had earlier said 91 registered political parties would be sponsoring candidates for various positions across the states.

Imo State is top on the list with 68 governorship candidates, while Delta and Yobe states share a space at the bottom with two candidates each.

Sokoto, Akwa Ibom and Borno states have 41 candidates each, while Zamfara, Ogun and Enugu states have 39 candidates each.

There are 38 candidates in Kaduna, 37 in Oyo, 36 in Niger, 34 in Ebonyi, 33 in Gombe, 32 in Kwara and 29 in Abia.

These were followed by 28 in Kebbi, Taraba and Bauchi; 23 in Kano, 21 in Plateau, 18 in Jigawa. Katsina has 17, Nasarawa 11, Benue 9, Rivers 7 and Cross River 3.

INEC had on November 9 published Form CF001 (Personal Particulars) of governorship candidates sponsored by various political parties.

Our correspondents, who reviewed the particulars of governorship hopefuls pasted by INEC in state offices, report that the total number of candidates for 2019 dwarfed that of 2015 elections.

While the PDP is contesting the governorship seats in all the 29 states in the general elections, the APC is yet to have a candidate for Zamfara, where INEC disqualified the party for allegedly not holding any primaries. The party is however challenging the decision of the electoral body in court, which means Zamfara may have an addition candidate if APC wins in court.

Famous candidates, obscure parties

Our correspondents report that some famous but aggrieved aspirants who could not secure tickets in either PDP or APC have joined other less known political parties and got automatic ticket.

In Taraba State, Senator Jummai Alhassan, who resigned from the APC following her disqualification by the party, is the now the governorship candidate of the United Democratic Party (UDP).

In Kano, Malam Sagir Takai, who could not get the PDP ticket, moved to the Peoples Redemption Party (PDP) and is now its flagbearer.

You lack moral ground to ask me to leave, Oshiomhole tells Saraki
Fri, 16 Nov 2018

The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has said the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, lacks moral ground to call for his resignation after alleged corrupt activities that trailed the party’s primaries.

Com. Oshiomhole, who reacted yesterday in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Simon Ebegbulem, threatened to sue Saraki if he failed to provide evidence of inducement.

Ebegbulem described the attack by Saraki as “unwarranted, pathetic and irresponsible resort to petty politics.”

He said Saraki who “is a usurper and pretender to the position of senate president” had no moral ground to call for the resignation of the national chairman.

“It is sad that Saraki, who just woke up from slumber occasioned by his crushing defeat at the Port Harcourt presidential primary election of his party, could degenerate to such a low level.

“It is equally sad, but not unexpected, that Saraki, who is politically drowning, would make such libelous comments against the national chairman of the APC. And I challenge Saraki to mention one name of an aspirant that gave money to the national chairman or we file a legal action against him.

“Whereas, the basis on which he made those comments was tenuous and unjustifiable, it is on record that Saraki has been in the eye of investigations by the EFCC and the ICPC for sundry cases of corruption.

“That is the same man that has taken it upon himself to question Com. Oshiomhole’s credibility.

“We challenge him to mention one person who has claimed that he gave money to Oshiomhole to influence him and the decision of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) in the just-concluded primary elections.

“We are aware that part of the strategies discussed in Dubai, where the PDP leaders recently visited and held their meeting, was to continue to dish out lies against top APC leaders with a view to distract the leadership of the APC ahead the 2019 general election. But they have failed because the National Chairman and APC leaders are focused and will never be distracted.

“However, It is time these irresponsible lies stopped; otherwise, anybody who continues to make unsubstantiated allegations against the person and character of the National Chairman should be ready to provide proofs in a court of law. It cannot be just a political game to smear the character of Comrade Oshiomole by people whose track record is unenviable,” he said.

But in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Senate President described the threat by Oshiomhole to sue him over his statement that he ought to quit politics on moral grounds over the allegations against him as an empty boast.
