Nigeria2015: I’ll support the best candidate irrespective of party, Obasanjo tells Buhari

FILE PHOTO: APC leaders pose for photo ops with former president Olusegun Obasanjo after the meeting.

A former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Tuesday said he adjusted his itinerary to suit and honour the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, who was in Ogun State for his campaign ahead of the February poll.

Mr. Obasanjo made this known when Mr. Buhari led chieftains of the party on a courtesy call to him at his private residence in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

“But let me in a special way welcome Muhammadu,” Mr. Obasanjo said. “Our paths have crossed on a number of occasions and when I was told you are going to be coming to Ogun State, I wasn’t sure whether you will come here or not. But I told my boys -I said well, whatever programme we have outside Ogun State for today, let us shelve it just in case Muhammadu and his party and his team decide to call here.

“You will remember when you decided to contest you wrote me a letter this time around. And I replied your letter. When you became the flag bearer of your party, you wrote me another letter. And I replied your second letter because I believe that you have honoured me by writing and I should of course reciprocate by also responding to your letter.”

The former president said what was paramount to him was who would make Nigeria better irrespective of the party the candidate belongs to.
Mr. Obasanjo, however, declared that he remained a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

“I have always said that party or no party, what is paramount for me is Nigeria. And that will remain paramount as far as I am concerned. There is no political party in the world that is made up of saints and our own political parties in Nigeria will be no exception. All the political parties have saints and devils among them. But because what you are campaigning for is the votes of saints and devils to be able to win an election, and I wish you well,” Mr. Obasanjo said.

Mr. Obasanjo added that politicians should do away with trivialities and face issues, to tell Nigeria what would be done to better their lots.

“I thought that I should say it today. I will just beg all of you who are contesting to add one to it; you mentioned economy, you mentioned corruption, and you mentioned security. All of you, I will beg of you, to add infrastructure. It’s very important. You may take it as part of economy but I will take infrastructure as special and give it special attention.

“For all political parties that are trying to woo us to vote for them in the coming election; let’s go away from red-herring, let’s go away from trivialities, let’s face issues and tell the people of this country what we will do to deal with these crying problems of our country. Having said that, I will also say that while a party must be microcosm of a nation – and in a nation you will have near saints, devils, rapists, armed robbers and a good party must have all this in them.

“But what matters is that when that party has to go into government, it must look for men and women of character. And we have them in all parties; we have them throughout the nooks and crannies of this country. Again, I wish you well as you go around. I thank you for this visit. I cannot end without reminding you, even though I saw some old faces, but some of us will remain firm at least at the ward level where I am very active in my party.”

In his speech, Mr. Buhari said he came to appreciate the roles Mr. Obasanjo played in his career. He said he needed to further solicit for his support.

“When I set about the programme of going round the states‎, it was decided that we should be taking two states per day. I think we have so far succeeded in doing the South-South and the South East. Whether we can maintain that success I don’t know. But somebody had the temerity to ask me that when I come, shall I call on Chief Olusegun Obasanjo? I don’t think I answered the man. I just looked the other side. I think that I should not come here in whatever capacity without calling to pay my respect.

“Sir, it’s a fact that you know more than all we know about the problem that we are in. But what we’ll do is ‎try to convince you to believe us that we are going to do better. We expect your understanding and support, although you insist in remaining in PDP. I have reached a certain degree of frustration in my attempt for you to try to shift a bit but you have refused.

“Briefly, we have been going around three fundamental issues: security, economy, corruption. This vicious circle is what the APC is determined to break. Because without security, there is no way the country can settle down not to talk of living in it. So many people, educated and uneducated, some said up to 60 per cent, will say Nigeria is sitting on a keg of gun powder.

“And then corruption; we believe that if we are able to stop corruption, a lot of resources will be available to invest in infrastructure, get the factories to reopen, get jobs, and get goods and services. So security, economy, in terms of employment, production, manufacturing, goods and services, and then agriculture will again give impetus to employment. We have to be systematic and work to make sure that the vast land we have is cultivated not only to produce food, but to produce raw materials for agro-allied industries, which used to be very viable but which we allowed to die because everybody has concentrated on getting oil money.

“Now the oil money is dwindling rapidly; I think we better come back to our senses. Sir, briefly, this is what we intend to do and this is contained in our manifesto. We are not going to be inflexible the way some people accused us of doing it. We are going to be dynamic as we go along and that’s why I said we are here to seek for your understanding, for your support, in spite of the political card you hold.”

After the visit, Mr. Buhari led his political train to the campaign ground at Moshood Abiola International Stadium, where he and other chieftains of the party emphasised the need for voters to cast their votes for the party at both states and national levels.

    Enough of this swan dance by Baba Iyabo, he has only one vote and the right to cast it for his Party’s flag bearer, fact remains: Obj cannot influence the outcome of the sealed faith of Dumbo and his PDP thugs in the South-West in particular, and Nigeria in the broader sense. While I agree with him that a nation has all sorts of characters within, I beg to disagree with his a good political Party must have, “devils, rapists, armed robbers” as members biko. The devils and treasury robbers are full in the PDP…OBJ may represent the “rapist” of his son’s wife to know the make-up of a “good” Party…He-Goat!

      BUHARI GETS NOTICE OF DIS-QUALIFICATION LAWSUIT

      There may be just one serious candidate left. EMERALDS ATTORNEYS AND SOLICITORS has today
      notified the Chief Judge of Abuja of its court papers for filing to prove in court that Buhari does NOT
      meet the constitutional standard in the 1999 Constitution by not being educated to school cert level
      and also for his lacking equivalent education.

      • Richard

        It doesn’t matter the level of conspiracy against Buhari, one thing is clear that there is a body that is saddled with the responsibility of screening the candidates. These busy bodies should let the process works itself out. I’m quite sure it is not the courts that will carry out the screening. Change we’ve been waiting for is around the corner.

          “Charge and bail lawyer” Okafor is playing true to type and showcasing his naivete. But the GMB “CHANGE” train has left the station before the PDP saboteurs got there and is now cruising to the Feb. 14 victory.

      • Newsbreak

        …Besides, Emeralds Lawfirm has requested ‘special dispensation’ by asking the Chief Judge, Abuja,
        to override the current judicial workers’ strike by “…empanelling a court to commence the hearing
        of this suit”
        .

        The court case is to determine if Muhammadu Buhari’s prima facie non-completion
        of primary and secondary school meets the requirement of the 1999 Constitution
        of Nigeria, which states as follows:

        • A person shall not be qualified for election to the office of President if he has
        presented a forged certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission.

        ……SECTION 137 (1) 1999 CONSTITUTION

        • Rommel

          Its not necessary stupid,the man is qualified,the problem we have now is for Jonathan to show us his asset declaration forms as well as evidence of his ivory tower claims,we have reasons to be believe that his academic credentials were dubiously obtained

    • Alfred

      I couldn’t agree less. Partisan sentiments aside, OBJ is still a formidable force in the grand scheme of things. Write him off at your peril.

      • Wähala

        No doubt his voice carries weight, but he should get off the fence and allow the campaigns to move on instead of sneaking into weddings at night, and shouting Nigeria first during the day.

        • endingNaija

          Thanks wahala. Na so I think ooo!

        • Wale

          they go to him, he had to make himself available at times.

          • Wähala

            ???

    • TrueNja

      @ Wahala – often times your comments are like someone who is on drug or demented. Baba Iyabo (OBJ) is an “Iroko” tree. Baba is the only person in Nigeria who know all these presidential candidates well enough and he can influence the outcome of this election. This is the reason why all of them want baba blessing. GMB is surrounded himself with vultures. As baba said and I quote “The former president said what was paramount to him was who would make Nigeria better irrespective of the party the candidate belongs to. All the political parties have saints and devils among them. But because what you are campaigning for is the votes of saints and devils to be able to win an election, and I wish you well. But what matters is that when that party has to go into government, it must look for men and women of character. And we have them in all parties; we have them throughout the nooks and crannies of this country.” We are voting for GMB integrity not APC as a party.

      • Wähala

        I said, “Obj cannot influence the sealed faith of Dumbo in the South-West in particular, and Nigeria in the broader sense” – How does that sound demented to you? Does Baba Iyabo have two votes with all his influence? This race is about two horses and OBJ cannot be sneaking into night parties with one candidate and talking rubbish during the day… who doesn’t know Nigeria is paramount thus, above any Nigerian? I know your grouse and sickness pal, you are a RAPIST as I’m certain that’s what hit your nerves. But guess what? I have more brains in my little finger nail than you have in all your kain-kain damaged head because in the end, you ended up making no sense. Punk!

      • endingNaija

        TrueNja, wahala is correct. Read him properly and not in a haste.

      • Gideon Orkar

        LWKMD!!! Your first line just cracked me up. Comedy gold!!!! It is so true Wahala be like person wey im head dey touch!

        But I disagree with the rest!

    • Wale

      GEJ was at the same residence of OBJ last night till bout 9:30 pm on the 12th of Jan; GMB showed up the next day at the same house presenting his case in points to the same man, and you think that’s just for one (1) vote.

      Those guys knows who and what Obasanjo is, I also belief that the western world trust OBJ than any other African leader at the present time, actually it’s been so for a while.

      Listen to Buhari, (do not forget that GMB was also OBJ’s petroleum minister in the late seventies)
      “Sir, briefly, this is what we intend to do and this is contained in our manifesto. We are not going to be inflexible the way some people accused us of doing it. We are going to be dynamic as we go along and that’s why I said we are here to seek for your understanding, for your support, in spite of the political card you hold.” Friend this is not for one vote.

      The most important phrase in that statement is “in spite of the political card you hold.” Buhari knows that US and her friends would listen to OBJ’s opinion before any Nigerian President, so here, he’s making a case for himself and his party for OBJ to take to his friends.

      One of many misconceptions in Nigeria is that IBB made OBJ the president in 1999, not so, Remember that IBB contested and lost in the primaries, not once but twice to Jonathan, why and how? OBJ’s support. The point is U.S helped made OBJ the president right out of Jail not IBB. How could he have made somebody else the president and unsuccessfully to make himself an elected president just once.

      On your last point, “rapist” of his son’s wife to know the make-up of a “good” Party…He-Goat!”

      If or when your son decides to date and marry your ex concubine, I think you should also be labeled as a RAPIST.

      • Wähala

        Listen!
        OBJ is canvassing for ING (interim national governmet) which is supported by the US purely for their need to obviate a bloodbath since it has become obvious no side will accept defeat at the polls. Pointer: APC’s threat to form a parallel government should the PDP rig themselves back to power. Fact is, OBJ cannot and will not come out and tell anyone to vote for Dumbo after all he said/wrote recently, sane people will think he has gone mad… and he cannot openly ask Nigerians to vote for the opposition’s candidate while still in the PDP. Thus, my “swan dance” and “sitting on the fence” analogy. But, OBJ’s vote is clear to discerning minds after he received those women, his book, his allegations and now: “Vote for the best candidate that will move Nigeria forward”, simply means: Vote for GMB because he is the best candidate out there who can move Nigeria out of her present predicament. This is the short and long of it… kapisch?

        • Wale

          I got your point, mine is, the man should not be rubbish after all he has done for the betterment of Nigeria.
          And you as an educated and enlightened person should not fall into the category of thrash talkers or be bamboozled into one.

          • Wähala

            Go read my vehement defense of Baba Iyabo on Sahara Reporters after his famous 18-page letter to Dr. Dumbo. I was abused even accused of being Fani-Kayode. More insults rained on me after I again grabbed Baba’s waist after Iyabo wrote her trash letter to her dad. So, while I’m no fan of his, I also respect his intellect and intentions for Nigeria. Afterall, no soldier who fought for his nation would sit back and watch a fake PhD holder destroy what he toiled to build. Simply put pal, we’re on the same side… Respect!

  • Awarawa

    OBJ was tactically telling Buhari that though he has credibility but most of his backers are killers, fraudsters, drug dealers…

    • Wähala

      You mean Fayose, FFK and Buruji?

      • endingNaija

        ati Mimiko!

    • Onike24

      Let’s analyze shall we?

      Kashamu- wanted by the US for running a drug cartel
      Obanikoro suspected arsonist
      Fayose- accused of Murder and impeached for embezzlement
      Omisore – accused of murder. Won senatorial seat from prison
      Bode George- convicted for Corruption

      If you want to talk about criminals, the PDP south west is the poster boy of everything wrong with that party.

      • Okey

        Obj’s govt sent a representative to the London court to testify that Buruji was not a drug dealer. On that account, London refused to convict Buruji or bundle him to the U.S. But when Buruji had disagreement with Obj, Buruji became a drug baron. That can only make meaning to maggot infested brain.

        • Wähala

          Shut-up dia and check with the DA office in Chicago to see if Buruji is still on their Most Wanted List of drug barons. Yours is agidi brain if you support an inmate being elected into the Senate while still in prison. In sane societies convicted felons cannot run for elective office, but not in that animal kingdom you live and run your dirty mouth from. The London Court was confused by Buruji claiming it was his late brother who was the wanted drug baron, something that has come to light as lies from hell… stop talking beyond your mental capacity: Thinking is not for everyone, some people must be banned… you qualify! He-Goat… anu nchie !!!

          • Okey

            BH, on the strength of Obj’s testimony, the U.K. court told America, “Sorry, you have requested for the wrong person – Buruji,” we won’t deliver him to you, he is innocent. Buruji therefore has no case with America. It may interest you that America has not demanded Nigeria to deliver him. So we cannot adopt your Boko Haram way to him.

      • Wähala

        Thinking is not for everyone… stop watering stone!

  • just kennie

    God bless Buhari. His worst is better than Jona’s best.

We want to place your so called transformation agenda side by side with available resources. No more red-herring! Let’s get real and face issues as we campaign for votes.

  • Musuru

    This old man is our surving devil in Nigeria!!!

  • sahara

    If Jonathan had given us 2 million jobs, if he had tamed corruption, if he had improved security, this election would have been his own.
    But after 6 years he is asking for 4 years to do what he could not do for 6 years.

  • Okey

    El Rufai in his book told us what “best candidate” and “national interest” means to Obj. He recounted that in 2011, Iyabo, Obj’s daughter, came out of the Ogun State PDP Senatorial primaries floored. Obj sent El Rufai & co to contact Gen. Buhari for his (Obj’s support); that such is “national interest” as he had found Buhari to be the “best candidate” of them all. But Jonathan got wind of his plans, set machinery in trend which saw Iyabo re-emerging as a Senatorial candidate from Ogun State. Obj, according to El Rufai, turned round to tell them that Jonathan has become the “best” candidate for the nation.

    Now Kashamu Buruji and Genga Daniel have taken Ogun State structure of the PDP and Jonathan for reasons that would appear now to be justified refused to coerce them to hand over the structure to Obj. This is a mortal spite to Obj. Long before then, all his boys – Oyinola, Segun Oni, were routed from PDP Exco and every attempt by Obj to have control of both Ogun and national PDP Exco proved abortive. Little wonder, Buhari again, has re-emerged, in the Obj book of politics as the “best candidate” and in “national interest.”

        @ Newsbreak,

        Wow, this is nightmare. Buhari is in soup. What is he going to say now?
        He has already sworn on oath that his credentials are with the Army Board.
        The Army has refuted that by saying it NEVER keeps original certificates.

        Which new excuse can Buhari tender to court on vigorous cross-examination?
        John Oyegun has even almost spoilt the case by saying General Babangida
        sent troops to Buhari’s house in 1984 or thereabouts and that those troops
        destroyed Buhari’s certificates in the process of vandalism.

        But where are Buhari’s testimonials of school attendance in lieu?
        Did General Babangida’s soldiers destroy those ones too? Haba!
        These are very childish lies, i beg! Even Tunji Abayomi spun his
        own yarn the other day. He said Buhari should be compared in public
        to a very brilliant student who always came first in class but just a day
        to his WASC exams, the brilliant student went and raped the daughter
        of the English teacher. Well, well, after this rape narrative by Tunji Abayomi,
        the public reacted with such revulsion that Buhari doesn’t look the same again.

    BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS!! LISTEN ATTENTIVELY TO THE VOICE OF REASON: NOT A JOKE.

    “Reports are flying that Northern leaders who had hitherto supported Buhari may be making a U-turn in the February elections after reports that the general may be having a serious health problem.

    This is following the online rumors that Buhari collapsed during his presidential campaign rally in Calabar.

    Even though the APC denied the report, it has given cause for worry, and the North has become wary, after they were ‘sidelined’ after Yar’Adua died in May, 2010 before completing his tenure, a development which led to the abrupt shift of power to the South-South under the rulership of incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan.

    “The North is beginning to rethink the promised support for Buhari in view of reports that he is suffering from a certain ailment which is believed to be wearing him down. There are also reports that the elders are pushing to cut a deal with Jonathan to complete his tenure in 2019 but extract a promise that power would be returned to the North via a younger and energetic Northerner,” a source said.

    “If anything happens to Buhari, power will return to the South-West less than a decade after President Obasanjo left Aso Rock. The prospects are grim, both for the North and even the South-East that is queuing for their own turn,” another Northern top personality is reported as saying” —NIGERIAN BULLETIN

    Those saying corruption is the only problem of Nigeria are only displaying their lack of proper understanding of the problem. I beg to disagree and say that ignorance is rather the number one problem. Boko Haram is simply a problem of ignorance. If people received better education. ,it will be easier to explain certain things to them. Nigeria is certainly not as rich as many of us think. With a total states and FG annual budget of about $45billion including internally generated revenue and a population of 170 million people. We are not actually rich .Meanwhlie, there is a lot of infrastructure to be provided including Power, running into several billions of dollars if not trillions. Compare our budget with other advanced countries whose budget is in trillions of dollars and a population less than us and they regulate population growth .We simply do not have enough to meet all our needs now. Accusing each other of baseless corruption is not the solution. What we need are ideas.

    • Shuaibu Bola Victor

      Good talk. Issue based argument. This is not barbs. I like this type, constructive!

    • Ajayi Ifayemi

      Your post makes a lot of sense until you got to the point where you said corruptions is baseless. Please corruption is not baseless. It is not our only problem, agreed. However, if we have budgets of trillion dollars like you mentioned and people continue to steal 70-80% of the money, as they do now, of what benefit will the trillion dollar budget be for us. All of what you mentioned are important to deal with, including corruption, maybe, especially corruption.

      • GEJ

        Ajayi pls go straight to the point. Abeg ooh

    • Yusuf

      $45B is alot of money if spent properly, it is not showing everything that we have as a nation but what we can spend for development of basic infrastructure and administration of the state for d year

      • GEJ

        Bless your heart Mr yusuf.

      • warry

        By our revenue allocation arrangement, half of that amount is spent by out states and local Govts. The erroneous impression created by power hungry politicians and believed by some Nigerians is that the corruption they are seeing is at the federal level meaning the states are making good use of theirs .if that is true then 50% of the problems we are discussing everyday ought to have been taken care of by now. I believe we have to continue to do the right things by preventing corruption and adopting the right policies and we shall develop steadily from year to year. ,not completely developed overnight because the available money becomes meagre compared to what is to be achieved.

    ALL PERJURY CONGRESS (APC)

    Excuse me please, is APC an ALL PERJURY CONGRESS? The party chieftains are wholly either
    full time perjurers, or, abettors of perjury. But nothing in Islam supports perjury, or, does Christianity.

    The APC party parading Jihadists, Imaams, Alhajis, Deacons, Prelates, Pastors and Bishops,
    has no fear of God or even basic respect for truth. They all look like morally dissolute creatures
    without knowledge of right and wrong. None of the APC members – not even Pastor Yemi Osinbajo,
    a Professor of law – has the two round inhabitants of a scrotum to cry havoc in the face of perjury.

      “Some people call themselves statesmen but they are
      NOT statesmen. They are just ordinary politicians.
      For you to be a statesman it is not because you have
      occupied a big office before but the question is:
      what are you bringing to bear?

      Are you building this country or are you a part of
      the people who tell lies to destroy this country,
      to create enmity and make people who ordinarily

      @ Yusuf: You are on point. The only knave who doesn’t know Obasanjo’s stance is
      Mr. Goodluck Jonathan who made a mess of himself yesterday by visiting Obasanjo.
      Predictably, Obasanjo took the opportunity to disgrace Jonathan as toxic and useless.

      • The Navigator

        “Under the watch of Goodluck Jonathan,
        government has become legalised and protected robbery.
        Before the presidential election in 2011, Jonathan
        surreptitiously invited Bola Tinubu, lifting him at night
        by presidential aircraft from Lagos to Abuja to
        hatch a plan for Bola Tinubu to support one PDP presidential
        candidate (Jonathan), at the expense of all other
        PDP candidates for any office in Lagos state.

        If in the past corruption was in the corridors of
        power, it would seem now to be in the sitting room,
        dining room and bedroom of power. Whatever amount
        of money was given to Bola Tinubu to procure
        votes for (PDP) in the 2011 presidential election
        election in Lagos state was, to say the least, unnecessary.
        What made this phenomenon particularly bad was
        that government had raised the money from
        government transactions which fuel corruption.”

    BREAKING NEWS: Happening Now!!! Defections Earthquake Hit Ondo PDP, as 48 PDP leaders in Ondo leads thousands of their supporters to dump PDP for APC

    All former Speakers in Ondo State House of Assembly, five Commissioners in Mimiko’s administration and eight local government chairmen in Ondo State are right now at a defection rally in Akure where they dumped PDP for APC. Scores of councillors are also part of the defection train.

    They are being led by former Chief of Staff to the late Governor Segun Agagu, Mr Femi Agagu.

    The greatest shock at the rally is the defection of former Speaker Victor Olabimtan, a director in President Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation and also a current member of the Federal Civil Service Commission.

    In all, 48 PDP leaders in Ondo are leading thousands of their supporters to dump PDP for APC at a ceremony currently taking place at APC secretariat along Oyemekun Road, Akure.

    The defection earthquake has forced Jonathan Campaign Organisation to cancel tomorrow campaign in Akure, the Ondo State capital, as majority of known supporters of the President have defected to APC or have traveled out of town.

    All mobilization efforts for the rally have crashed, forcing PDP leaders to opt for cancellation of Akure rally tomorrow, according to PDP sources in Ondo State…

    NIGERIAN MORNING NEWS: A PROACTIVE MEASURE

    “Reports
    are flying that Northern leaders who had hitherto supported Buhari may
    be making a U-turn in the February elections after reports that the
    general may be having a serious health problem.

    This is following the online rumors that Buhari collapsed during his presidential campaign rally in Calabar.

    Even though the APC denied the report, it has given cause for worry,
    and the North has become wary, after they were ‘sidelined’ after
    Yar’Adua died in May, 2010 before completing his tenure, a development
    which led to the abrupt shift of power to the South-South under the
    rulership of incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan.

    “The North is
    beginning to rethink the promised support for Buhari in view of reports
    that he is suffering from a certain ailment which is believed to be
    wearing him down. There are also reports that the elders are pushing to
    cut a deal with Jonathan to complete his tenure in 2019 but extract a
    promise that power would be returned to the North via a younger and
    energetic Northerner,” a source said.

    “If anything happens to
    Buhari, power will return to the South-West less than a decade after
    President Obasanjo left Aso Rock. The prospects are grim, both for the
    North and even the South-East that is queuing for their own turn,”
    another Northern top personality is reported as saying” —NIGERIAN

      Please tell Mr. GEJ to stop the empty campaign promises. There is a golden chance for him to show he can walk the talk. Creation of 2m jobs annually, fighting corruption, fixing energy and stamping out insurgency and terrorism with 45% gap in budget funding for 2015 (benchmark price of USD65/barrel, price of crude is hovering around USD46/barrel). Where is he going to get the resources. For a start. let him reduce the pump price of petrol from N97/liter, since the increase was initially based on increase in international price of crude oil that affected the landing cost of imported fuel. Where is the N100/liter differential on the price of kerosene to show he cares for women so much? Let PPRA show us the new template for product pricing. If he cannot do this when the ball is yet is his court, he should shut up his mouth and face in shame as total failure. After all, he has accepted the failing of his generation.

    Breaking News:

    BUHARI GETS NOTICE OF DIS-QUALIFICATION LAWSUIT………..

    There may be just one serious candidate left. Emeralds Attorneys and Solicitors has yesterday
    notified the Chief Judge of Abuja of its court papers for filing to prove in court that Buhari does NOT
    meet the constitutional standard in the 1999 Constitution by not being educated to school cert level
    and also for his lacking equivalent education.

    • Newsbreak

      ……….(2) BUHARI GETS NOTICE OF DIS-QUALIFICATION LAWSUIT

      Besides, Emeralds Law-firm has requested ‘special dispensation’ by asking the Chief Judge, Abuja,
      to override the current judicial workers’ strike by “…empanelling a court to commence the hearing
      of this suit”.

      The court case is to determine if Muhammadu Buhari’s prima facie non-completion
      of primary and secondary school meets the requirement of the 1999 Constitution
      of Nigeria, which states as follows:

      • A person shall not be qualified for election to the office of President if he has
      presented a forged certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission.

        @ Newsbreak,

        Which new excuse can Buhari tender to court on cross-examination?
        John Oyegun has almost spoilt the case by saying General Babangida
        sent troops to Buhari’s house in 1984 or thereabouts and that those troops
        destroyed Buhari’s certificates in the process of vandalism.

        But where are Buhari’s testimonials of school attendance in lieu?
        Did General Babangida’s soldiers destroy those ones too? Haba!
        These are very childish lies, i beg! Even Tunji Abayomi spun his
        own yarn the other day. He said Buhari should be compared in public
        to a very brilliant student who always came first in class but just a day
        to his WASC exams, the brilliant student went and raped the daughter
        of the English teacher. Well, well, after this rape narrative by Tunji Abayomi,
        the public reacted with such revulsion that Buhari doesn’t look the same again.

        • bikky

          sit don dey look,your eyes go clear.

      • Obum O Obum

        Having listened to Rotimi Fashakin on Channels TV this morning, I have come to the full understanding of what I prefer to call ‘The Case of the General’s Certificate.’
        Soldiers, presumably sent by General Ibrahim Babangida, reportedly raided General Buhari’s home after his overthrow and carted away some of his belongings including original copies of his certificates. Remember that the army spokesman recently accepted that they have Buhari’s certificates but insisted that Buhari must apply for them. Well, Buhari has stoutly refused to do any such thing given that the army have no business holding his documents in the first instance. But he needs those documents to vie for elections. So to get out of the conundrum, he swears to an affidavit stating that the documents are with the army and gets on with the election.
        Submitting the affidavit satisfies the Electoral Act, and anybody who thinks the contents of the affidavit are false is free to head to court to challenge it as stated by the Electoral Act and advised by INEC recently. The Court shall compel the Army, under subpoena, to produce Buhari’s documents, without him having to beg for it in the name of application.
        Fela would have called this a ‘stalemate.’
        The PDP being fully aware of this fact has no intention to go to court because they know it will be in Buhari’s interest. So they do the next best thing and decide to try him in the court of public opinion of people who do not have the facts, and then politically milk the situation for all it is worth.
        Buhari does not have to apply for certified true copies of his certificates from the schools he attended because the documents are not missing. I bet the APC leaders must have piled enormous pressure on him to apply to the army for the documents, but being who he is, he’ll do no such thing. Sort of a case of when you are tired of holding my documents, you return them to me.
        Vintage Buhari!
        Politics is ordinarily an interesting phenomenon but the Nigerian version is the bomb. Lol!

    In the same vein, the APC presidential candidate,a former military dictator, General Muhammed Buhari during his 1983/84/85 junta
    cannot boast of any investment in agriculture. Today, with the unique
    intervention by President Jonathan, Nigeria’s food import has declined by $5.3
    billion between 2013 and 2014 even with our increasing population. Our nation
    now ranks as one of the biggest food producers in Africa with our food
    production expanding by an additional 21 million metric tonnes, between
    2011 and 2014, a record exceeding the nation’s set target of 20 million metric
    tonnes set for 2015.

        The population of Nigeria during 1983-84 was smaller to compare with the population explosion we have today.

That was one of the reasons Obj made sure Abiola was killed—If u believe the fake stories from obj u can believe anything—there is no way—the presidential team of the Night Soil Men—in APC will arrive Ogun state without Obj being informed via a letter from the governor of the state that Buhari will be paying him a courtesy call————–PDP should ignore this man obj and Jonathan should hence forth distance himself from obj—-and let the heavens fall-he is of no use to the president and the party—Obj is now a full fledged APC agent—like tambuwal——

    Your plan with Tinubu your brother to do another american wonder on the north has been exposed,we are supporting Goodluck until 2019 when we will bring our own candidate and have our own uninterrupted 8yrs.We now know Buhari is sick

    • tundemash

      cl0wn .. why not bring that your own candidate when PDP was looking for Presidential aspirants? A creek monkey masquearding as malik !

    • Tunsj

      How do you know that Buhari is sick? You sound ignorant and blind to see that your hero, Jonathan, has been in office for six years and nothing to show for it. I will tell you this, hearing your hero’s name makes me regurgitate.

    OBJ na funny man, MUHAMMADU, lol!

  • Aisha

    Why is the north becoming a victim of Yoruba political shenanigans. OBJ deceived us and gave us a sick Yaradu. Again Tinubu is giving us another sick northern candidate, and plotted his political houseboy Osibanjo who will take over in the event of eventuality.
    north be wise, north be wise, north be wise.
    why is the south using us this way.

    • Paiko

      You can bear whatever northern name you want, it won’t work. Decision has been taken and BUHARI is the man. Go and hang yourself!!!

    • bikky

      Aisha,so you can determine who will die tomorrow? I pray you will not die in next four years and see what God can do through Buhari if he is elects.

    • objective

      Aisha, Is it northern interest or something else? I think you should be more forthcoming with the truth. The issue is not with Buhari’s age. Who can predict who lives and who dies? That is the sole prerogative of the Most High. The issue is more like, some people writing to preserve their pot of soup. And as it is, Jonathan is seen as a pot of soup by so many people around him. Where do you stand?

    • objective

      Aisha, from your spelling of Yar’adua, you appear not to be northern to me.

  • Anene Mercy

    look at the Candidates that our 21st century youths are campaigning for. what is wrong with our Nigerian youths?

    • objective

      What has integrity, openness and intellectualism got to do with your looks? People never cease to amaze me.

  • Aisha

    where are the northern leaders who are keeping quiet now. Tomorrow you will start blaming south for not returning power to south. Buhari is old and cant stand the pressure and stress of the office of president.
    it is either we support GEJ for 4yrs or we do something now.
    No more yaradua trick on us again.
    Buhari is a secret option for south west to get to power. that’s why OBJ is rooting for Buhari.

  • sam funso

    Warry your comments are appreciated. But you have to look at overall solution to Nigerian problems. Education laded with Corruption, weak governance and lack of basic infrastructures will lead no where. We need to attack the present spates of Corruption and lack of do nothing. I read many of the comments and I am concerned that you can see tribalism festering high again among commentators.

  • bikky

    Baba Obasanjo, I will continue to give one million and one respect to you sir,even at your age you have good judgement in most of all your decisions,not like some young men/women that suppose to think right and speak truth but chosen to be tribalistic and religious in their decisions taking. Whoever that love Nigeria and Nigerians and is ready to move it up in the comity of Nations is our next President God willing, not somebody that could not decide which shoe to wear since Nigeria provided shoes for him,how can such a person take a decision that will save the country and her citizenry. Kudo to you Baba.
    Buhari Muhammad is an Option for now,vote wisely. God loves Nigeria and Nigerians.

    In the same vein, the APC presidential candidate,a former military dictator, General Muhammed Buhari during his 1983/84/85 junta
    cannot boast of any investment in agriculture. Today, with the unique
    intervention by President Jonathan, Nigeria’s food import has declined by $5.3
    billion between 2013 and 2014 even with our increasing population. Our nation
    now ranks as one of the biggest food producers in Africa with our food
    production expanding by an additional 21 million metric tonnes, between
    2011 and 2014, a record exceeding the nation’s set target of 20 million metric
    tonnes set for 2015.
    GEJ I do, GEJ man of the people, GEJ we will vote.
