EXCLUSIVE: No plan to field Muslim-Muslim ticket – APC

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, John Odigie-Oyegun, has dismissed insinuations that the party was planning to field a Muslim-Muslin ticket in the February 2015 presidential election.

He described as “very unfortunate,” but unnecessary the controversy which trailed the interview granted an online newspaper, The cable, by a leading presidential aspirant of the party, Muhammadu Buhari, in which he said he would keep an open mind on the issue of his party’s presidential candidate and running mate.

Mr. Buhari, a Muslim, had in the interview, said he had demonstrated to Nigerians in the past that he was not a religious fundamentalist by picking Christians as his running mates in the 2003, 2007 and 2011 elections in which he ran.

“Nigerians will always uncover impossible room for manoeuvre for politicians. I had to face one of the governors during one of our party’s meetings [over the issue of religion],” Mr.Buhari, Nigeria’s former head of state between 1983 and 1985, said.

“In 2003, I chose Okadigbo as my running mate. He was a Roman Catholic. He was an Igbo. In 2007, I picked Ume-Ezeoke. He was a Roman Catholic. He was an Igbo. And in 2010, I chose even a pastor. Pastor Tunde Bakare.

“Honestly, what do Nigerians want me to do? If they don’t believe I’m not a fundamentalist, what else can I do?”

He recounted that the late Moshood Abiola, a southern Muslim, picked Babagana Kingibe, a northern Muslim, as his running mate in the 1993 presidential election.

The Muslim-Muslim ticket won the election generally considered the fairest and freest election in Nigeria’s history.

There had been speculations that Mr. Buhari might be looking in the direction of Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola, who is also a muslim, or his predecessor, Bola Tinubu, also a Muslim as his as his running mate, if he picks the APC ticket in the December presidential primary of the party.

However, a former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Sunday warned parties against fielding candidates of the same religion, saying it was dangerous for the country.

“Sensitivity is a necessary ingredient for enhancement of peace, security and stability at this point in the political discourse and arrangement for Nigeria and for encouraging confidence and trust,” Mr. Obasanjo said.

“It will be insensitive to the point of absurdity for any leader or any political party to be toying with Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket at this juncture,” Mr. Obasanjo said.

“Nigeria cannot at this stage raise the spectre and fear of Islamisation or Christianisation. The idea of proselytisation in any form is a grave danger that must not be contemplated by any serious-minded politician at this delicate situation in Nigeria, as this time is different from any other time.

“Therefore, disregarding the fact that there are fears that need to be allayed at this point will amount not only to insensitivity of the highest order but will also amount to very bad politics indeed.”

But Mr. Odigie-Oyegun said the APC had never contemplated fielding a presidential and vice presidential candidates who belong to the same faith and that the current debate over the matter was just a distraction to the party.

He explained that the party was pre-occupied with the process of choosing its presidential candidate and that it had not toyed with the issue of who becomes the running mate yet.

“You know what triggered these things. It is very unfortunate. We are trying to get a presidential candidate now. Once that is sorted out, the issue of running mate becomes a simple matter,” the APC national chairman told PREMIUM TIMES in a telephone interview on Monday night.

He said Mr. Buhari might have been misunderstood on the matter, stating, “It is his usual way of speaking. You know he is a straightforward man. It (running mate) is not an issue. But that is his own way of putting it and should not be misunderstood.”

Mr. Odigie-Oyegun said the APC has a mission of rescuing the country from alleged mis-governance and therefore would neglect any segment of the country by being insensitive in the choice of candidates for the elections

According to him, “We want to rescue this country; we want to save this nation. And so we will not do anything to make us loose votes, especially from a very large segment of the society. That is the simple truth. We don’t have to.

“We are looking at somebody who will contribute to winning the election. These things are commonsensical things that will be taken care of when we get to that bridge.”

On the reaction of Mr. Obasanjo to the issue, the APC national chairman said the former president’s comment on the matter was a non-issue for his party but generally okay.

He stressed, “We, as a party, haven’t gotten to that bridge. People shouldn’t forget that we are a new party. We do not want these distractions. We are taking all those issues gradually.”

Asked if the party was planning to pick a former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu, as the running mate to Mr. Buhari, Mr. Odigie-Oyegun said, “I’m the national chairman. Whoever we will choose as our presidential candidate, whether it is Buhari, Atiku, Kwankwaso, Rochas Okorocha or any other person, the party will then sit down with him and say this is the type of running mate that will contribute maximally to the success of the party in the election.”

He denied claims that the party was reluctant to address the issue and that an official of the party was mandated to clear the air on the issue, but refused.

      Check up the posts on this forum, whenever you are sober from whatever they give you guys to sniff at the amnesty camp, and you would realise, Nigerians can’t be decived again. Perfomance is the key, far above religion and ethnicity. If your Dumbo likes, let him sleep and fast in Israel, he will solely be judged on his perfomance since 2009 and his electoral promises NOT on his faith !

    I’m a Southern Christian and I know that majority of Nigerians want accountability. A Buhari / Fashola ticket is a winning team sure enough to bring the change we need.

    • Chima

      when was the last time you where in Church till the end of service? I know a lot of people who claim Christianity but not practicing and these people who can wager to left or right depending on wetin dey happen.

      • Kay-J

        When did my being pious or not have any impact on the matter at hand? Stick to the subject matter.

        Nigeria is being run aground by a Christian at the helm. If the logical solution is with a Muslim, why would I play a religious card and not support the truth?

        Even Jesus was ruled by Caesar.

        So in your Christian practice, you cannot be ruled by a Muslim? Wake up and smell the roses!

        Religion is also a means of harmonious coexistence despite the beliefs of your neighbor.

        • Chima

          It has become customary these days for non-christians to claim membership just to argue their warped position against the church. So I ask.

  • Tugbi

    I read Buhari’s interview he never supported Muslim-Muslim ticket but said Nig problem is lack of performance and sincerity. he said he had always preffer xtian as his Vice but Nigerians keep saying he is fundamentalist

  • Look the average Southerner hates Buhari but will overwhemingly vote APC if it is a Buhari-Fashola ticket. OBJ is correct but not right. Nigerian is in desperation today.Buhari symbolises anti-corruption while Fashola is an epitome of a true administrator.Fashola singlehandedly won the South west for APC.The local woman in Oyo, Sagamu, Ajegunle, Oshogbo was voting Fashola when they voted APC. Buhari talked about electoral value when he refered to having used a Catholic, a Pastor etc in the past. APC should conduct a Poll between the following persons- Fashola, Oshiomole, Professor Pat Utomi.The number of votes APC will lose if Fashola is not on the card will be massive.With Fashola on the card, the enlightened will be motivated to participate.For your information are Yoruba muslims truly muslims.Forget it, they are nothing but JAIYE -JAIYE MUSLIMS.THAT EXPLAINS WHY THEY
    MARRIED BEAUTIFUL CHRISTIAN WIVES.Tinubu,
    Fashola, etc, Christian Wives.IF FASHOLA IS NOT ON THE TICKET, MOST NIGERIANS WOULD RATHER BEAR JONATHAN TILL 2019.

  • Alhaji Lai Mohammed

    DON’T MIND THEM ………… THE SAME WAY WE GAVE THEM A CEREMONIAL CHAIRMAN ……. IS THE SAME WAY WE WILL GIVE THEM A CEREMONIAL VICE PRESIDENT

    WHAT THEY DON’T KNOW IS THAT APC HAS ALREADY SETTLED FOR A MUSLIM – MUSLIM TICKET IN DISGUISE BY MAKING SURE THAT ALL THE KEY NATIONAL EXECUTIVE POSITIONS ARE ASSIGNED TO MUSLIMS

    MOREOVER, FOR DAY TO DAY RUNNING OF GOVERNMENT BY OUR JIHADIST BROTHER BUHARI AND THE MUJAHEDDIN ….. THE POSITION OF A VICE PRESIDENT IS NOT REALLY AS IMPORTANT IN OUR EXECUTIVE PRESIDENTIAL MODEL OF DEMOCRACY.

    THIS IS REALLY WHAT MATTERS:

    APC AS AT TODAY THURSDAY OCTOBER 16, 2014 ………….. WOULDN’T YOU RATHER VOTE FOR US !!!

    APC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES:

    Presidential Candidate No. 1 ……… Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari ……… Muslim
    Presidential Candidate No. 2 ……… Alhaji Atiku Abubakar …………….. Muslim
    Presidential Candidate No. 3 ……… Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso ………. Muslim
    Presidential Candidate No. 4 ……… Alhaji Aminu Tambuwaal ……….. Muslim

    APC NATIONAL EXECUTIVE OFFICERS:

    “Ceremonial” National Chairman………..Odigie Oyegun………Traditional
    National Secretary………….Alhaji Ibrahim Bala Gubi………………………Muslim
    National Legal Adviser………………………Alhaji Muiz Banire……………..Muslim
    National Treasurer………….Alhaji Bala Mohammed Gwagwaruwa…….Muslim
    National Financial Secretary……..Alhaji Tajudeen Olawutan Bello……Muslim
    National Welfare Secretary………Alhaji Dika Umaru Lada……………….Muslim
    National Publicity Secretary……..Alhaji Lai Mohammmed………………..Muslim
    National Youth Leader…………….Alhaji Ibrahim Dasuki Jalo……………..Muslim
    National Women Leader………….Hajia Ramatu Tijani………………………Muslim

    These are all the key National Executive Positions, (I mean ALL as in ALL) and they are all assigned to Muslims.

    The remaining positions are Deputy this … Deputy that, Vice this … Vice that ……Zonal this …. Zonal that ….. Assistant this, Assistant that, ……….. these remaining positions are not usually functional and most of them must by nature be occupied by persons who are from the specific zone specified.

    Please observe that all the key positions are assigned to Muslims …….. also observe that Christians are not assigned any key position while Northern Christians are completely excluded.

    NB: I am aware that inconsequential positions were assigned to persons from the South-East who are not practicing Christians viz: Senator Osita Izunaso and Mr George Moghalu ….. Organizing Secretary and Auditor respectively.

    APC …….. WOULDN’T YOU RATHER VOTE FOR US !!!

    • Ade

      Reno Omokri, please stop this nonsense. It won’t help your clueless and divisive president. All you are insinuating is that your president can get reflected without the votes of Muslims. This is highly unrealistic. Don’t turn Nigeria to Rwanda. I think your Oga should call you to order.

    • Pastor Jones

      No Comment,

      Yoruba Christians lack knowledge, wisdom and understanding. That means they are not Christians, actually, but pretenders to the Scriptures. They are so obsessed with oneself – as individual – that they can’t think straight with a strong sense of community. The selfish obsession has got so bad and gone beyond inordinate lust after posterity that each Yoruba Christian does not mind to elbow out a fellow Christian; not just in pursuit of wealth but also elbow out the next Christian sitting next on the pew out of the kingdom of God. By so doing – and by being so obsessed only with oneself as individual – a Yoruba Christian is now worse than an idol worshipper, by becoming so irresponsible as to let rot the kingdom of earth, in violation of this world as the trust property of Jehovah intended to be kept nurtured, with proper values rather than abandoned to rot in the hands of Islamic murderers.

    • aladeadekunleoluwaadeshinaola

      I am of the opinion that you are wrong in your take, there is no Jihad in Nigeria, what we have is terrorist hiding under a religion, being a christian, it is my opinion that we should help the people of the North fight this enemy because it is disrupting our economy. The job of the president is first to secure us. If you or anyone have enough prove that some people are sponsoring terrorism, they should be picked up, no one is greater than this country. I support the APC because they are doing their job as opposition, in criticizing this government each time it fails in its responsibility. I have spent several years in Northern Nigeria to know how important that area is to Nigeria.

  • Enough_is_Enough

    YORUBAS AND SOUTHERNERS …………. SHINE YOUR EYES !!!

    It is a record of fact and history that Yorubas featured prominently with respect to the exalted position of Chief Justice of Nigeria.

    But since the Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani used the same Yorubas (the role of Obasanjo is instructive) to capture the position of Chief Justice of Nigeria ……… no Yoruba man has ever again occupied the position of Chief Justice of Nigeria.

    The last Southerner that occupied the position of Justice Justice of Nigeria is Justice Gabriel Irikefe who served as the Chief Justice of Nigeria briefly from 1985 to 1987.

    It is instructive to note that since 1987 (a period of over 28years to date) all who have served as Chief Justice of Nigeria are all Northerners

    In fact, apart from Justice Aloysious Katsina-Alu (2009 – 2011) ….. all who have served as Chief Justice of Nigeria are all not only Northerners ….. they are Muslims …….. specifically they are Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani.

    • Holy Warrior

      @ Enough is Enough:

      That is a fact. Well done sir! Let those who have eyes but cannot see now be told this fact; again and again!
      Let word go out that southern born-again Christians are the ones aiding an Islamic state of Nigeria.
      All Pastors and Bishops in Yorubaland will deserve no help against genocide from Boko Haram when the time comes.
      This raft of un-thinking Pastors, Bishops and Prelates are the ones misleading Christendom to genocide in Nigeria.
      They will have to account for the blood of over 20,000 Christians killed under their watch as Christian shepherds.

        Ai>Mr. Odofin:

        Solve this cancerous rash of Islamism first, and, every other good thing will be added unto you.
        Islamism is a dangerous ideology. It asserts supremacy of Muslims – whether educated or not.
        It authorizes mass murder of all others. Islamism spreads round Nigeria, from Lagos to Borno.
        Islamism is on the move to Port-Harcourt, after an attempt of mass killing at Winners Chapel, Owerri.
        Democracy crumbles under Islamism because Islamism is apartheid – the ideology of religious supremacists.

        Islamism is banned in Saudi Arabia – the spiritual headquarters of global Islam, and also banned in Egypt –
        the intellectual capital of global Islam – because enlightened Muslims recognize Islamism as most dangerous. But, alas, Nigerian Muslims, far less educated and far less enlightened, hoist this same pernicious Islamism
        as the standard-bearers, with the suicidal Christian community in Nigeria doing nothing to stop it but looking on – as genocide enters all the Christian neighborhoods with devastating blood-letting.

          “Those who unleashed Boko Haram on the nation [Nigeria] are not poverty stricken.
          They are politicians ….desperate for power, intelligent enough or perceptive enough
          to recognise that the cocktail of politics and religious fundamentalism can only yield
          them dividends. They think they have nothing to lose.”

          “The foot soldiers have been indoctrinated for years, from childhood, and they
          believe that their religion [Islam] is in danger….but Islam is not in danger. It is the
          pervert followers who are being used and who use others and proclaim that they
          are fighting for Islam. Look at the histories of the world: Boko Haram, if not contained,
          and eradicated, will be found in the heart of Lagos (Nigeria) before you know it.”

      You are wrong,Kutugi is from Niger, Nupe by tribe, Alfa Belgore is from Kwara state, though i agree that the other three are from kaduna and kano but take it from me that we have yoruba chief judges from 1958 to 1985, it was only between 1975-1979 that we had a foreigner. The Judiciary is not political, it is professional based on seniority and every region is represented but unfortunately but the south also have been chief judge for about the same period. Please let us not continue to disunite Nigerian.

        Kutigi is a Northerner and a Muslim …….. Alfa Belgore is a Northerner and a Muslim ……. what then is your point different from what I said above ……. you are shamefully brainless.

        • aladeadekunleoluwaadeshinaola

          Since 1958 to 1987, the southerner were Chief Justice of Nigeria. In the judiciary, the most senior judge becomes the chief judge, it is a phase which would return back to the south again. But I detest people who choose to be abusive instead of concentrating on the debate. We always politicize everything, you said the hausa fulani had been chief judge for 28 years, just shown you that only 4 hausa fulani have been chief judge spending about 16 years while the we have had two nupe tribe as chief judge. I write base on facts, if you have a superior argument, let me hear it.

  • Words on Marble

    IS APC AN ISLAMIST PARTY; YES, OR, NO?

    The Action Congress of Nigeria [ACN] which last year morphed as APC
    has NEVER presented a Christian as governorship candidate in Yorubaland.
    So, the question is: why did APC never do so? Alhaji Lai Mohammed –
    the APC Spokesman – said it is because APC chooses its candidates ‘on merits’.
    So, what does Lai Mohammed’s explanation mean?

    Very simple, it means as far as APC is concerned, Yoruba Christians have no merits
    to hold top government posts but they could be appointed either as assistants to Muslim overlords;
    or, as Commissioners taking instructions from a Muslim governor.

    Fact two: APC was formed with 100% Muslim national executives and registered as such with INEC –
    the National Electoral Commission. What does this second fact mean? Very simple, it means
    morning shows the day. Not only does APC consider Yoruba Christians useless,
    APC; by starting out with 100% Muslims as interim national executives, invariably deems
    all Christians in Nigeria as worthless.

    In the light of these two clear facts the next logical question is this: “What is an Islamist Party?”
    Very simple – again. An Islamist Party is an association registered as a political party but which internally
    decides the question of ‘merits’ for its members based solely on Islam by pre-judging every non-Muslim;
    and in particular a Christian member, as un-qualified for top government position on its party platform.
    Therefore, is APC an Islamist Party? The answer is, yes!

          If Yoruba unity ends up being destroyed for these religious reasons, the Yoruba Muslims must take 100% of the blame. The Muslims’ new but insidious and un-enlightened ‘ideology of separateness’ – close in practice to apartheid – is tearing up the fabric of Yoruba society, forever.

          That is the truth educated Yoruba people are too bashful to confront. But whilst they hide
          their heads in the sands; like ostriches at noon, Yorubaland now fissures so badly
          that communal peace is now being violently threatened.

          I beg, please don’t misunderstand me O!. I DO NOT EVER want to be told of the tenets of Islam – never. Based on the mass murders i see the Hausa/Fulani and Kanuri committing in Nigeria, Islam is bad enough reason to be repelled forever from Muslims who equate their religion with genocide.

      • Public Tribune

        “Just as it is un-acceptable for the Leader of Boko Haram (Mujahedeen Shekahu Abubakar)
        to select the Archbishop of Lagos, so it is un-acceptable also for Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu,
        or his thick as thieves Islamist satrap – Oba Akiolu of Lagos – to endorse or pretend to select
        a successive Christian governor of Lagos state in the year 2015.”

        All ploys by both men, as Muslims, to personally choose a successive Christian
        governor is no more than a clever by half exercise in futility and a dumb plan

        which should be ignored and rejected by all right-thinking Lagosians.

    My hope and ambition is actually not to cut anybody’s head, but just to give fearful jitters to others.
    Can i be advised on how to go about converting from this emollient Christianity to militant Islam?
    Conversion to Islam will also help me quickly get a job (as an un-employed graduate) in Lagos state.

    BEWARE!!!! Do not let Reno Omokri and his army of Internet trolls paid by Goodluck Ebele Jonathan with your money change every discussion to an ethnic and religious one. This is the ONLY way they think they can compete since they are struggling to defend how they have governed in the last 6 years. They have left the country worse than they met it with 15000 dead and counting, corruption at record highs, impunity unbelievable up to the point that voters are intimidated by masked goons who claim to work for the state, ethnic and religious division at its worst since the civil war, national balance sheet deteriorating with declining revenues, reduced payments to states and mounting debt, poverty increasing in leaps and bounds, infrastructure worse or just as bad as he met it after 8 additional years of earnings at record oil prices. Let us not even talk about unemployment and healthcare which have regressed even more. The only things that “improved” are the number of private jets, the increase in the number of militants who are official advisers to The President, an increase in the number of churches, upstart ministers that say the order from a sitting president to stop kerosene important was merely an advice, the unexplained disappearance of billions from the national treasury, etc. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has been a MONUMENTAL DISASTER for Nigeria. No amount of spin, religious and ethnic division, red herrings or obfuscation can change that.

      If Lagos is really the worst state to live in, then the PDP should be ashamed at the urban mass migration in her direction.

      Say all you want, Fashola is the best governor in Nigeria as at present. He may not be perfect, but he’s made a positive impact on responsible Lagosians lives in one way or another.

        RAJI FASHOLA IS THE WORST GOVERNOR EVER IN NIGERIA

        Alhaji Raji fashola is actually the worst governor Nigeria has ever had. A state governor who who refuses to render accounts when asked in accordance with law, is not a governor but a rogue. Accountability is the first definition of responsibilty. And insofar as Raji Fashola refuses to account to the people he is an irreponsible fellow.

        Alhaji Raji cannot run city transport system with competence. The Lagos BRT bus system has all but collapsed in just three [3] years due to official theft of the scheme’s operating funds. Ditto, Raji Fashola cannot run a sensible school system – with Lagos recording 80% school cert failure rate every year.
        A governor who can’t run city transport or run a school system is an incompetent failure on all else.
        Or what else is a state governor supposed to do – is it foreign policy; or, what?

            It is true Lagos is badly degraded; without communal peace, anymore. Un-informed opinion is
            all that covers up the rot and sets false standards for those entrusted with public treasury
            to continue to ride roughshod over the populace. That’s why Raji Fashola had the audacity
            to declare publicly to all Lagosians that they have no right to freedom of information.

            Not even General Sani Abacha – infamous as the worst dictator ever – dared say such
            insulting nonsense to the public. But what did our mushrooming civil rights groups say in retort,
            let’s even say in pretence to upholding their own self-given creed? Nothing but absolute silence
            – in pure conspiracy! And, the journalists in Lagos, what did they say? No objection – just quiet.

            And how about the self-described civil rights activists and the so-called constitutional lawyers –
            what did they say? Nothing – just the same evil, conspiratorial silence. So, you can see.
            Anyone wondering when the rains started beating Lagosians into a hardscrabble place
            of illiterates – where folks now behead one other in the afternoon at Fadeyi area;
            right in the centre of the city – must date the time when cash bribes from Alausa secretariat
            of the Lagos state government overrode all journalists and media houses into horses of
            instruction and finished off the scrum of civil and human rights groups;

            Yes O. Me too can remember that in 1999 Gani Fawehinmi rightly
            exposed Bola Tinubu as ‘a plea-bargained drugs-running criminal’

            who perjured himself on oath as having attended the University of
            Chicago, which he never did.

            But rather than join that fight for decency in public office, Femi Falana was railing
            baselessly in newspapers against Gani Fawehinmi, just to cover up Bola Tinubu.

            Whereas, America’s permanent court records indeed show Bola Ahmed Tinubu

            as a plea-bargained criminal who later perjured himself on oath in Nigeria as

            having attended the University of Chicago – which he never did.

            “Coming on the heels of its defeat in Ondo, the APC rout in Ekiti is
            conclusive proof that Tinubu’s fabled stranglehold on South-West
            politics has ended. Lagosians are disgusted that Tinubu has privatized
            their politics. His wife, daughter and even son-in-law have been steam-rolled
            into vantage political positions.”

            “The state’s finances are tied to Alpha Beta (Ltd.) With the contempt for the people that
            has come with years of monarchical control over the ACN, Bola Tinubu presumes

            just because his burning ambition to become the vice-president of Nigeria now
            demands it. But what this has achieved is to show that Bola Tinubu’s ambitions

      Truth is a Muslim sees the world in absolute terms of such non-responsibility.

      No matter how Mahatma Ghandi for example pleaded with the Pakistani people –
      to remain inside India as common citizens of one indivisible country – it did not work.
      But by the time the illusion of ‘national unity’ cleared, not less than one million folks
      lay dead in the bloody partition of Muslim Pakistan from Hindu India.

      History must not repeat itself inside Nigeria. The Hausa/Fulani/Kanuri north is
      Nigeria’s own Pakistan. There is no need to nurse the illusion that somehow
      Pakistani Muslims could have lived as Indians. There is no need to repeat the
      one million deaths in India inside Nigeria. The Pakistani solution can be
      peacefully done in Nigeria with a flag, a military parade, a farewell handshake,
      after just two signatures. Yoruba Muslims can then join the new Islamic Republic,
      if they want.

      • Pointblank

        Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Raji Fashola are the two Muslim
        Mujahedeens who destroyed Yoruba unity. Lagos state government has earned $40
        billion plus in revenues between 1999 and now. The money – less salary and
        running expenses – was partly shared between Bola Tinubu, and Raji Fashola
        under corporate guise in the worst scam ever in modern Yoruba history.

        Last year, Lagos state floated a loan bond of about 80
        billion Naira and got public investors to subscribe for repayment with interest
        but once the bond was fully subscribed, Raji Fashola took 40% of that money –
        about 35 billion Naira or so – and handed it over in cash to Bola Tinubu, via a
        bogus corporate front.

        This patently corrupt deal was ostensibly to buy back Lagos
        state ‘concession rights’ on the Lekki tolled Expressway, according to Raji
        Fashola. But what the corrupt and clever by half Raji Fashola did not say is
        that the land at issue belongs to Lagos state and was never sold to Bola
        Tinubu’s company in the first place. Or did Bola Tinubu’s company invest 35
        billion Naira developing the road.

        • Pointblank

          …………………..In other words, by sheer fraud, Raji Fashola paid Bola
          Tinubu 25 years profit upfront without any further work. A lien was then
          imposed on Lagos state allocation of federal revenue for the next three [3]
          years to pay for this 80 billion Naira debt by all Lagos residents. This
          transaction must count as the worst fraud ever in Yoruba history since Nigeria
          became independent on October 1, 1960.

          In fact, On May 21st, 2014, the Lagos State Commissioner for
          Finance, Ayodeji Gbeleyi, confirmed that Lagos state debts, as at May 2014,
          stood at N435 billion – including N275 billion in bonds – equivalent to 2.7
          billion United States dollars. Now, discounting monthly interest rates on the
          commercial portion of this debt, the gross Lagos state government debt is now
          equal to all of the expected federal revenue allocation to Lagos state in the
          next three and half years, at $3.7 billion, without equivalent benefits on the
          ground to show for it – dollar for dollar.

      • Uncle Garry

        Well, in my own view, what people are saying here shows there’s still a breathing democratic spirit surviving the Muslims’ rampaging onslaught in Nigeria. The All Progressives Congress party [APC] must take responsibility for its misdeeds. Democracy means exactly this.

        Each government is assessed on its attitude to others to whom it owes legal duty of care under the Nigerian 1999 Constitution. APC can’t evade this assessment which has so far been negative due to the party’s Islamic lenses by which it sees Nigeria but misses to see the 80 million Christian citizens. I think APC should be really ashamed by what people are exposing here as massive thefts plus the party’s un-disguised Islamic fundamentalism, especially in Lagos state.

    All you that nuture falsehood and propagate it have nothing to achieve. The question I have to ask you guys “is PDP a Christian Party” ? Whether you guys like it or not, change must happen- a positive change for that matter. We have endured misrule for over 15 years in the hands of PDP. It is even worse now that President Jonathan has no direction, seem confused and very incompetent. Corruption abound, insecurity created by PDP for their own selfish benefit, lack of respect for Nigeria in the committee of nations. Our problem in Nigeria is not a Muslim or Christian party (which we all know does not exist). If you guys say APC is a muslim party because Jonathan (who is not even qualified to contest having sworn oath of office twice) has been nominated to run for Presidency, what happens after Jonathan, when a northern muslim will become PDP’s presidential flag bearer and a southern/northern christian, APC’s flag bearer? Will you guys turn around and call PDP a muslim party. I pity you all crumb eaters, who have sold their conscience to the devil. Nigeria’s problem is not whether you are a christian or muslim but the character of those christians and muslims on the sit of power. We should be clamouring for disciplined, incorruptible and upright leadership, not the type we are currently witnessing under PDP and Jonathan. I conclude that by Abati and Reno Omokri unleashing you people to peddle falsehood here, is a sign of jittery and people running out of steam. APC has come to stay whether you guys like it or not. They are the opposition today and parade the characters that can change things for the common good. Enough.

    Have you noticed the high cyber traffic in defense of GEJ and PDP since the voting earlier on this month. Seems they’ve gotten serious about social media.

    Please just don’t bungle it again like with that Reno person.

    Also, kindly stick to facts and stop causing rancor amongst ordinary citizens. The religious undertones should please be stopped. 170 million lives are balanced on these pages.

    Cheers

    A cowardly retreat ?……..or a tactical retreat? The leopard cannot change it’s spots “once a fanatic,always a fanatic !!

    This is the most troll-infested article I’ve ever seen on the Internet!

    They’re not even pretending to have conversations.. Just pasting the same messages over and over, untill the whole discussion board is blacked out with propaganda!

    The mission is to stoke up religious/ethnic hatred, in the hope that it will somehow benefit their lord and master – Goodluck Jonathan.

    They’re starting a fire, but hope it will somehow blow past their master’s house and leave him unscathed.

    One thing I wil give Jonathan – he knows how to recruit criminals with the right experience to get the job done. The only ‘job’ he ever cares about is reelection and these yahoo-yahoo boys are doing a fine job.

  • Look the average Southerner hates Buhari but will overwhemingly vote APC if it is a Buhari-Fashola ticket. OBJ is correct but not right. Nigerian is in desperation today.Buhari symbolises anti-corruption while Fashola is an epitome of a true administrator.Fashola singlehandedly won the South west for APC.The local woman in Oyo, Sagamu, Ajegunle, Oshogbo was voting Fashola when they voted APC. Buhari talked about electoral value when he refered to having used a Catholic, a Pastor etc in the past. APC should conduct a Poll between the following persons- Fashola, Oshiomole, Professor Pat Utomi.The number of votes APC will lose if Fashola is not on the card will be massive.With Fashola on the card, the enlightened will be motivated to participate.For your information are Yoruba muslims truly muslims.Forget it, they are nothing but JAIYE -JAIYE MUSLIMS.THAT EXPLAINS WHY THEY
    MARRIED BEAUTIFUL CHRISTIAN WIVES.Tinubu and Fashola both have Christian Wives.IF FASHOLA IS NOT ON THE TICKET, MOST NIGERIANS WOULD RATHER BEAR JONATHAN TILL 2019.

      My friend, the Loans Fashola obtain which Lagos State would pay in the next twenty years or there about covers all services and shoddy infrastructure he has provided so far.

      Where then has his over N40 billion monthly average IGR and FG allocation gone into? His pocket and that of hid master.

      That is the saint who will garner all votes along with one of the earliest national treasury looter independent Nigeria ever knew – Buhari who stole Nigeria money as Federal Commissioner of Petroleum in the Ninety seventies?

      We would rather stay with the devil we know rather than vote for the angels of darkness!
      Jonathan is the great guy!

    The Presidency of Nigeria is not the exclusive preserve of the North and West, neither are the South and East allergic to presidency. ..anything more than Jona in 2015 will be direct unstoppable invitation to secession nd withdrawal of our SS&SE resources. Pure & Simple

    • fayrouz

      We should vote for him so that he can kill us all abi? Have you ever heard nigeria is broke before? I know your answer is no thet ahve hide the money for election all I want u to tell GEJ people don’t want him we trusted him and he break the trust he don’t have pity for the mases. As at 2012 he remove fuel subsidy which I know even you as his supporter suffered. Every time we on our radio or television station we would hear billions of naira missing or Arm robber attack a bank, kidnappers, baby factory nd ritual
