…Says Muslim-Muslim ticket deceitful

By Achadu Gabriel, Kaduma

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Kaduna state, said they’ll sincerely revisit the over bearing increase in school fees in Kaduna State university (KASU), built by the party, when it assumes power in 2023 under Rt. Hon. Isa Ashiru’s leadership.

The party also vowed to revisit the sacked teachers, destruction and demolition of peoples shops and houses, revocation and reallocation of the same plots of land to other persons under the El-rufai led administration of the All Progressive Congress (APC) party in the state.

The state party secretary Ibrahim Aliyu Wusono made the promises in an interview with newsmen at Senator Ahmed Mohammed Markafi guest house in Kaduna, in as much as PDP cannot decide for APC, same faith ticket is improper and unfair.

“We cannot decide for APC on Muslim -Muslim ticket but we know it’s not proper. Nigeria is for both Christian and Muslim and even those without religion.

(In governance every parties need to be present and participate when decisions that’ll affect them are being taken.

“Even at the level of presidency, for the president to take decision on what affect one faith without their presence in unfair. So if one is a Christian , the other one should be muslim and vise versa.”, he said.

He also noted that even thought the Muslims -muslin was used in Kaduna to favour APC party, the repercussions are so obvious and deceitful.

“They use muslim -muslim ticket and deceive Muslims to go and vote for them. Of course they voted for them and claim to have won the election. Even though we know they didn’t win, they did what they did to retain the power but after claiming the victory, what benefit does Muslims derive from same faith ticket.

“Muslims doing Qur’anic recitation were being denied it. Muslims for the first time in history were denied going to mosque to perform there 3 times Friday prayers for 14 weeks which is first since Islam came to African.

“Again, they did not select the shops of Christians and destroyed it and exempted that of Muslims shops when they were destroying shops and houses.

“They increase school fees of KASU under the regime from about N25 or 30, 000 to over N180,000 to about N200,000, Is that what Islam.

“So they only used Islam to deceive people. Our Ulamas, Utzas , or Sheikhs or Islamic scholars used to campaigns for same faith ticket, a lot of them are being chased out of their houses.

Even from the Mosques where they said is not proper to stop Muslims from performing their prayers just because of corona virus, were being sacked from those mosques, Is that Islamic.

“How many masque were being destroyed or demolished here in Kaduna under same faith ticket. So is just for deception and not/in the interest of the public.

“We’ll also revisit houses being collected from people, destroyed and reallocated to some people, those sacked from work premature we’ll be revisited, those aged will be paid their entitlement due to them.

“Common men whose shops and stores destroyed and who cannot go to farm for insecurity, sacked from work and paid nothing, and the increase of school fees affect their children, where are they going to pay from. that’s is even the causes of this insecurity in our society.

“So definitely PDP will revisit a lots of policies introduced by this APC government if elected and in power in 2023′, hr lamented.

According to him, APC has history of sacking of teachers right for the Col. Hameed Ali retired the current customs service boss now in APC, adding that “Col. Hameed Ali sacked many workers while in office as military governor but when PDP came, under Governor Makarfi he reversed the sacked workers.

ANTI PARTY ACTIVITIES: Esan Central APC, Suspends Nine Leaders, Appoints Bello



Nine Leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Esan Central LGA have been suspended at an extraordinary meeting held this evening at Irrua, the LGA capital.

The suspended leaders include APC State Vice Chairman, Chief Francis Inegbeniki, Esan Central foremost Party Leader, Prince Willy Shaka Momodu, Ward Leader, Hon Abudu Ugbesia, among six others.

The suspended nine APC leaders are alleged to have held a clandestine meeting at a hotel in Eidenu, Irrua on the eve of the House of Assembly election and resolved to work against their party candidate for the House of Assembly election, Hon Victor Edoror. It is alleged that they were induced by the ruling party and their grand conspiracy to disallow Hon Edoror to get into the House and become the Speaker which might scuttle their agenda for Esan governor candidate from Esan Central LGA.

The meeting which was attended enmass by angry members and party executives of the party across the LGA appointed former LGA Councillior, and House of Assembly election aspirant, Hon. Bello Oyaziwolo, as the acting Leader, to oversee the affairs of the party pending the determination of the investigation into the degree of involvement of each of the suspended leader.

Interestingly, the Deputy Leader of the Party in Esan Central LGA and former Vice Chairman of the LGA, Hon Francis Ubene, was exempted from suspension because preliminary investigation revealed that he was in the meeting allegedly called by Chief Inegbeniki, but he refused to agree with their alleged plan to sabotage the election for Hon Edoror because according to him “I have forgiven him and if I have forgiven him, I cannot work against him or the party”.

Speaking with Hon Bello, after the appointment, the new LGA Leader said he was not interested in Leading the party for selfish reasons but would commit himself to helping the party rid itself of betrayals and inept leaders in the LGA and hopefully allow a free process to produce the next LGA Leader.

Press Release



Senator Ovie Omo-Agege Rejects INEC’s Declaration of Oborevwori As Winner of Delta Poll

A while ago, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Delta State announced Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, gubernatorial flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the governor-elect following the March 18 governorship election.

The declaration was made despite the myriad of infractions and acts of impunity on the part of the PDP in the course of the election. These were brought to the attention of INEC with incontrovertible proof.

The March 18 election was characterized by massive fraud, unprecedented vote buying and voter suppression perpetrated by the PDP in the course of the election.

The fraudulent nature of PDP’s so-called victory are just too damning and daring for it to be acceptable in any decent society. Most of those infractions are on the public domain and known to INEC officials and the security agencies involved in superintending the election.

In the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections, the results pointed to an unequivocal rejection of the PDP. Of the three senatorial zones in the state, APC won two while PDP controversially edged out the Labour Party in the Delta North Senate race.

It was an unadulterated verdict of Deltans on how they have fared under 24 years of governance of their state by PDP.

On the basis of the factors listed and more that will come later, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, governorship candidate of the APC in Delta State as well as the leadership of the party, unequivocally reject the declaration by INEC of Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori of the PDP as winner of the March 18 governorship election.

We will challenge this fraudulent result using all legal means.

As a democrat and Deputy President of the Senate, Omo-Agege will explore all lawful avenues to reclaim the mandate freely given to him by the good people of Delta State.

To the numerous supporters of APC and the entire public that share in Omo-Agege’s vision of building a new Delta State, we urge you all to remain calm, peaceful and law abiding.

I can assure all our teeming supporters and all Deltans that the PDP pyrrhic celebration of a stolen mandate will be short-lived.

By the grace of God and the clearly expressed wish of the people, this electoral heist will be reversed and Senator Omo-Agege will be sworn in on May 29, 2023 as the lawfully elected Governor of Delta State.
