President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has warned potential troublemakers to stay away from ballot boxes on October 10 in Ondo State.

At an emergency caucus meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja on Monday morning shortly after the visit of Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu together with Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State to the Aso Villa, the President warned that anyone who foments trouble in Ondo State during the gubernatorial election, especially by carrying ballot boxes, would be doing so at the “expense of his life.”

”Anybody who decides to snatch boxes or lead thugs to disturb the election will not live to explain it. I have given the military and police the order to be ruthless.”

”I am going to warn anybody who thinks he would lead a body of thugs in his locality to snatch boxes or to disturb the voting system; he would do it at the expense of his/her own life,” the President said.

Mr Buhari stated that recently, Nigeria’s internal election has attracted international communities and this has made us to reiterate our commitment to ensuring that the wish of the masses prevails.

“As much as we will support our party’s flag bearer in Ondo State Rotimi Akeredolu SAN to win the governorship election in the State, we will also ensure that the victory is honourable and well deserved. APC will never allow any form of electoral fraud whatsoever”, the President said.

A source, very close to the presidency who sought anonymity, revealed that Mr President is not happy with Governor Rotimi Akeredolu because of the anti-party he played during the last presidential election.

The national caucus meeting, which was initially scheduled to be televised for about 30 minutes, was cut off live broadcast after the president’s remarks.

Journalists were also asked to leave the venue to allow for a closed-door session.

Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said politicians must begin to prioritise the vehicle of governance to benefit the people, adding that political leaders must remain selfless for Nigeria to attain its full potential.

Speaking to journalists in Benin City, Obaseki said he is not in government to be famous or make money at the expense of ensuring development that will benefit the people.

The governor noted that there is need for a mechanism to be put in place to ensure transparency in government, noting, “Only few persons in government are held accountable for their decisions in government.”

According to him, “I am not in government to make money; I am not in government for fame. I am in government to serve. The youths are the reasons why I am in government. If I cannot serve you, I will quit.”

He added: “The issues of better government, proper governance and transparency are what we are emphasising. When we have younger people who can use technology in government, we will have transparency and accountability, which informed my decision to have many younger people working for my government.

“For things to be working in Nigeria there are structural challenges that we must fix. Let us not gloss over the cracks. Let us go to the foundation and begin to fix the conditions because the cracks are expanding so wide.”

Obaseki continued: “In a democracy, you need an institution that will ensure law and order and that is why we have the security agencies.

“Our security arrangement in the country must reflect our federal system as I can’t be a governor of a state and not able to hire and fire my Commissioner of Police, but #ENDSARS protests have helped us start the process.”

‘We won’t Accept Extension For Buni’s Caretaker Committee’ – Kaduna Based APC Chieftaincy

An All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain in Kaduna State, Yusuf Ali, has cautioned Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni, who is the party’s Chairman, Caretaker/Extra-ordinary Convention Committee , against extending the six-month tenure prescribed for the committee to hold an extraordinary convention to elect new leadership.

Ali, who made the call while speaking with reporters in Kaduna yesterday, said the report making the round that the Buni-led committee might seek an extension to reform the party, would be counter-productive.

“Majority of the party members indeed welcome the Buni-led caretaker committee with open arms and the committee also enjoyed widespread support across the party especially when it began the reconciliation of aggrieved party members and leaders.

“However, four months down the line, there are speculations in the media on alleged moves by the Buni-led committee to seek an extension. I am appealing to them not to follow that trajectory even though the committee hasn’t refuted the media report.”
