Jonathan visits Buhari’s hometown, denies pushing for Interim Govt.

President Goodluck Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday in Daura, Katsina State, said the Interim National Government (ING) being touted by some politicians was alien to the Nigerian constitution and such the call is “treasonable”.

The President said this when he paid a courtesy visit to the Emir of Daura, Umar Faruk Umar, with members of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, top government functionaries and prominent Northern leaders.

Daura is the hometown of All Progressives Congress’ Muhammadu Buhari, Mr. Jonathan’s main challenger in Saturday’s presidential election.

The president warned those speculating about an interim government that their action was treasonable as it contravened the constitution of the country.

He added that such persons will be dealt with in accordance with the law.

“Anybody planning ING or is linked with ING must be dealt with by law because it is treasonable.

“ING is not known to our constitution; it is treasonable,” he said.

President Jonathan said that rather than fomenting trouble with such calls, Nigerians should prepare to go to the polls on March 28 and April 11 to elect credible leaders across the country.

“Nigerians should go and vote for those who will bring about development to the local, state and federal government levels.’’

The President told the Emir that his administration was part of the Emirate council as he Jonathan was a title holder in the Emirate.

“I will continue to do what is good for Daura, Katsina State and Nigerians.’’

According to him, within the past four years the administration has achieved so much in transforming the country and was ready to do more in the next four years.

“Within this time, we have done quite well but we have not reached where we want to reach yet.

“We have developed education at various levels and in Katsina alone we built 28 Almajiri schools to create a future for the youth.

“We are working with the Katsina State Government to improve education in the state, now and in the future.

The president said his agriculture intervention was robust as the Federal Government had changed the state of Nigerian roads, railways and health sectors.

He also mentioned the successes recorded in the eradication of polio, guinea worm and Ebola, adding that at the tertiary health level, Nigerian institutions were carrying out successful heart and kidney surgeries.

Mr. Jonathan said that after more than 30 years of being in limbo, the rail transport sector had been revived.

Mr. Jonathan said that it was the intention of his administration to link all states of the federation with railways to improve transportation, save travel time and cost as well as reduce road accidents.

“My administration is totally committed to improving the lives of Nigerians.

“We will also continue to bring peace to the country.’’

He commended the Emirate and the subjects for working together to ensure peace in the country.

The president further promised that in the next dispensation, his administration will implement the decisions of the just concluded National Conference to raise the standard of the traditional institutions in the country.

“As a member of your emirate council, I will not disappoint you,” he told the emir.

The Emir, in his response, thanked the president for the visit and told him to always count on his support and counsel.

Mr. Umar also told him to ensure there was peace throughout the country during the forthcoming general elections.

Among the president’s entourage were the National Chairman of PDP, Adamu Mu’azu, and the Director-General of the Presidential Campaign Organisation, Ahmadu Alli, among others. (NAN)

  • Mr white Ahmed

    The people of Katsina state will vote en masse for president Jonathan cos he has done well for them.Coupled with the building of 28 almajiri schools for them,the only federal university in Katsina state(the home of Buhari),he built it.Education we all know is key to improving the quality of life of a people.Well done Mr President!

    • burning spear

      The president tarred the road leading to the village of Buhari the certificate forger–in Daura his adopted viallge—where sadly he has no relations–no grandfather or great grandmother—–cause he is from Niger republic——————–how can u claim to come from a village where none knows your great grandfather? haba

      • Onike24

        Now he is from Niger? You people are truly beneath contempt.

  • ConScience

    If only his so called supporters were as earnest and told him the truth then maybe Nigerians could have forgiven and helped him repeat his tour of duty. But when you claim he is the best President Nigeria has ever had using all forms of media platform for the past 2 years then it goes to show how demented his supporters are. Let your accomplishments claim your greatness. Unfortunately there is none from this administration other than making corruption and Olympic Sports. Even FIFA, Russian and Brazilian Govt cringe at the levels of corruption our current Govt exhibits.

    Mr President went to Daura, Katsina home of the major opposition party Presidential aspirant to campaign peacefully but yet APC cannot campaign peacefully in the hometown of our ‘beloved’ First Lady a Mama of Peace. Irony anyone?

    • burning spear

      rubbish was Jonathan not stoned by APC thugs during his last visit————-to katsina state and his posters and billboards burnt in that same state–also?—show me one place in bayelsa or rivers where buhari was pelted with water sachets—–as the APC thugs did to Jonathan in the North——–liars with no fear of God in their blood stained souls

      • Ask jonathan madam because she is a lecturer in the department of throwing stones

  • Jonathan is a bad product. No matter how pdp package or publicise him, he may be popular because of the office he occupied.Nigerians have rejected him and will not buy.

    • burning spear

      at least there was no stone-throwing exercise this time around cause tinubu was nowhere near katsina state–

      • No need to stone Jonathan today because he went to the wrong zone to campaign.

      • Seyi

        Just wondering if you remember that Patience Jonathan spoke the mind of Goodluck Jonathan when she abused Northerners of having SHILDREN they do not take care of. Tinubu did not say that.

  • burning spear

    In an interview with a national newspaper (not Vanguard), last weekend, Mohammed, while claiming that all ethnic groups in Nigerians would not vote for President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015, said only the Ijaw and Igbo, who he said were for sale, would vote for the President.

    “The Igbo are mercenaries, they are there for sale. If the devil were to come today to say, ‘I am the devil about whom the Bible and the Quran have spoken, I am prepared to give money, the Igbo will take the money and vote for him,” Mohammed said.

      And Richard Grenell said “Buhari’s election as head of state would be a disaster for Africa. It would also signal trouble
      for the West’s fight against the Islamic State (ISIS) and terrorism throughout the Middle East. The decision by the 73 million registered Nigerian voters could have a profound impact on the future of Africa.”

      Based on Mr. Grenell’s analysis, I would prefer to be either Igbo or Ijaw instead of a sheepish hausa/Fulani or a double-tongued Yoruba man. Just speaking the truth

  • There is a massive, widespread, and pervasive corruption affecting all levels of government under president Jonathan.

    • Nonsense

      …had you prosecuted, incarcerated and/or executed those who pioneered public office stealing (otherwise known as corruption) at ITT in the early 70s, it would certainly not have lived to this day talk less of being pervasive. This is why Bros Jona told you people that Corruption is not stealing. And you people could not understand his parable.Stay there and very soon, you too will become pervasive together with your ideas.

      • Jonathan and his gang of cabals have stolen so much that there seems to be no money to steal anymore. Jonathan’s government is incompetent, callous, and very corrupt

  • richkid

    Even in his opposition place, he is highly recognised!

      By the paid ppl, right? They will take our money he stole from us and then vote his ass out next week Saturday.

  • Shape Sharpe

    Duncee’s Daura – a desert land stricken with dust with cattle rearing as the main occupation. Daura ranks as the state with the least IGR and GDP out of the 36 states in Nigeria and it has ZERO contribution to National GDP bcos of its perennial net deficit position. And this is the state that presents a 73yr old man which they brand as Change. It is ridiculous.

    Imagine a conglomerate in distress and then you begin to consider a 73yr old who has ZERO equity share holding as CEO of such a company. A 73yr old who has failed to win 4 times before. After failing 4 times in a row, he suddenly becomes change. Is this possible? This is craziness.

    The Yoruba ‘leaders’ want to be in power at all costs like the Hausa. For them a second fiddle will be ok as long as the East is kept at bay. But they only postpone that day –

    • May be you should ask your principal what took him to a state like that.

    • Dr.Kelechi Ifejiagwa – MA, USA

      In the same vein that ur master a so called “President” was asking about a part of his country attacked by terrorists in “Where is this Gwoza sef”, You (whatever your name is) are here classifying Daura town (a LG hqtr and an Emirate) as a “State” in Nigeria…Yet, you call yourself a Nigerian and wants to comment on Nigerian issues. SHAME on YOU…Go back to ur community primary school please, for U are colossal disgrace to the Igbo people…ONNIARA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • True Nigerian

    Jonathan, the habitual liar. It’s incredible. People who don’t know him will think he has just declared the truth. But this is a president who spent 5 years on telling Nigerian Christians the lie that boko haram was created to bring down his so-called “Christian presidency”. He played silly bloody politics while rag-tag terrorists slaughtered his own citizens like chickens right in his own territory.

    I am a Christian, and I can say that the Christian faith should be ashamed of national leaders like Jonathan. A christian president who has corrupted the church more than any muslim president.

    Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State has expressed disgust over what he described as the level of threat some northerners were facing for not supporting the presidential ambition of the former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari, warning that the type of siege mentality being inflicted on the people was the beginning of the failure of the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, at the polls.

    “The fear of Buhari is the beginning of leadership failure; therefore Nigerians and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, government must stand up to its mandate,” he said.

    Lamido, who spoke during the party’s presidential campaign in the state, however, warned that the siege mentality under which the people were currently experiencing in the north because of Buhari would backfire.

    According to Lamido, any northerner who is not supporting Buhari was being threatened an seen as an infidel.

    Apart from northerners, Vanguard investigations also revealed that most residents, who wear caps depicting them as natives of some southern parts of the country were being molested by street urchins as “infidels.”

    • burning spear

      Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State has accused the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC), Major-General Muhammadu Buhari, of divisive campaigns in the northern and southern parts of the country.
      Stating this yesterday at the Malam Aminu Kano Triangle during the official declaration of the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state and a former chief of staff, Malam Aminu Ibrahim Ringim, alongside his running mate, Dr Nurudeen Mohammad, Lamido noted that a critical look at the situation on the ground exposes people like Buhari as being insincere in both intent and purpose.

      Elaborating, Lamido alleged that when Buhari talks to the electorate in the North, he usually plays up the religious card, but once he is in the South, he plays it down by harping on the unity of Nigeria.

    As the controversy continues to trail the production and supply of the permanent voters’ cards (PVCs) for the elections, it has emerged that a Nigerian company, ACT.Technologies Limited, was awarded a N2.6 billion contract by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to produce the PVCs, which was in turn sub-contracted to a Chinese firm.

    This is coming as the Chairman of the commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega, on Thursday decried the antics of politicians ahead of the elections, noting that their actions were becoming a threat to the conduct of peaceful polls.

    Based on the electronic payments exclusively obtained from INEC by THISDAY, the transfers showed that over N2.6 billion was paid to the Nigerian company for the production and supply of over 68.8 million PVCs within a period of seven months.

    It was further gathered that the PVCs were expected to be produced at a unit cost of N65.

    THISDAY gathered that the electronic payment mandate for the production of the PVCs was routed through two banks, an Islamic Bank – JAIZ Bank – and the First City Monument Bank (FCMB) Limited between 2013 and 2014, which showed that ACT.Technologies charged with the production of the PVCs had been fully paid, but is yet to supply all the PVCs for the elections.

    A breakdown of the payment mandate showed that INEC on February 14, 2013 paid the sum of N489,937,500 to ACT.Technologies, being part payment for the production of the PVCs. The money was paid through JAIZ Bank.

    Once a Duncee, always a Duncee. You do not expect Prof Jonathan to behave like it. Do you? We are talking of someone who scored F9 in arithmetic. Don’t you know F9 means he scored 2mrks out of 100 marks? This is what Faka meant by ‘brain don die pata pata’, and PT misinterpreted it to mean ‘Brain dead’.

    ‘him brain don die pata pata’ in Pidgin means the person is incapable of logical reasoning and not ‘brain dead’. This is why PT should employ one of the indigenous Pidgin speakers to interpret whenever Faka or anyone speaks in Pidgin.

    PT should know that there is an armature Dictionary of Pidgin English written by one Prof in Nigeria. Despite the fact that the Dictionary hvs over 13,777 errors, it would be of use to PT, at least as a first line of translation.

    “Let me use this opportunity to make a statement again because
    sometimes I read in the papers of people talking about interim
    government. Even yesterday some people were making
    pronouncement that some people are planning interim
    government.

    And I will say that anybody who is planning or who is linked to
    anything that has to do with interim government must be dealt with
    according to the law. It is treasonable and government will not allow it.

    So, if people get arrested or are being prosecuted,
    people should not say government is haunting people.
    There is no reason why people should talk about interim
    government that is not known to our constitution.
    It is treasonable. I advise Nigerians to keep away from it”.

      “It will be a disaster for all of Africa if Buhari is elected”

      Mr. (Muhammadu) Buhari’s election as Nigeria’s head of state
      would be a disaster for Africa. It would also signal trouble for the
      West’s fight against ISIS and terrorism throughout the Middle East.
      Western foreign policy observers, pre-occupied with the rise of ISIS
      of ISIS in the Middle East should wake up to the reality unfolding in Nigeria.

      Opposition candidate General Buhari wants Sharia law throughout Nigeria.
      In fact, he wants it everywhere. “I will continue to show openly and inside
      me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over
      Nigeria,
      ” Mr. Buhari said. “God willing, we will not stop the agitation for
      the total implementation of the Sharia in the country
      .”

      Agitation? Is this an indication that Mr. Buhari supports violence because
      the end goal of the terrorist attacks throughout Nigeria and Africa is an
      Islamic state? It is a legitimate question that should be asked by
      leaders of the Obama administration.

      The nature of the interim government wants to pretend it’s not really a military intervention.

  • Moe

    Some folks here are saying things that don’t make sense.
    They quote a northern Governor Lamido of jigawa State saying ” that when Buhari talks to the electorate in the North, he
    usually plays up the religious card, but once he is in the South, he
    plays it down by harping on the unity of Nigeria.”

    Why would Buhari need to play any card in the north? Why waste the limited time and funds APC has on campaigning in the North of Nigeria? Especially if you consider it from the perspective of the things Patience Jonathan has been saying about Hausa’s?

    To clarify, let me borrow from Senator Adefuye, Only a Bastard Hausa would vote for Jonathan!

    So, now that we have established that ‘only a bastard Yoruba would vote for Jonathan’, and concluded that ‘only a bastard Hausa would vote for Jonathan’, Ndigbo…..you are up next!.

    Lets make it a WAZOBIA thing so by the end of 24Hrs we can draw the final conclusion and summarize this ‘our thing’ into a neat little phrase….yeah,,,,you guessed right.:
    ONLY A BASTARD NIGERIAN WILL VOTE FOR JONATHAN!

      It’s all their fault for being so local and nearly daft. They elected Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu
      who did not go to a provable school as their governor for 8 years to RUIN your lives, and,
      they did so with their eyes open, right? What did you expect should happen to Lagos?

      They knew that this same Bola Ahmed Tinubu has all along been on U.S court records as a
      plea-bargained drugs-running criminal. Next to that, you should ask: what did they do
      to mitigate their losses. Nothing sensible!

      Like drunken mariners they trooped out 8 years later, this time against the facts to elect
      Alhaji Raji Fashola (on the say-so of the same Bola Tinubu) who on his own part had
      struggled through a 3rd rate Birch Freeman Secondary school in Lagos, not so?
      Surely, Lagosians can’t be classed as bright or intelligent for so doing but will rather
      be classified as either dull or daft.

        ………….(2) Why the Yoruba will vote en masse for President Jonathan

        What did you expect should happen with those serial blunders? Of course, it is exactly the
        messiness you see in Lagos where Raji Fashola banned FREEDOM OF INFORMATION; and,
        did not get slapped in protest for it – not even on the wrist – therefore confirming Lagos
        state today as a colony of slaves.

        It is a fact that 99% of Lagosians did NOT know anything about Raji Fashola or ever saw
        or heard him before or read anything he ever wrote showing his values or thought-process.
        Lagosians can now see the huge cost of their stupidity and will surely avoid it on 28th March.

        Lagosians now groan that between Bola Tinubu and Raji Fashola, ALL of the $40 billion
        Lagos state revenue got since 1999 have either been recklessly blown or majorly stolen.
        On top of this baleful legacy of the duo in Lagos state is the matter of un-precedented debt
        of $3.7 billion now owed by the Lagos state government.

        To tell the truth, Lagosians deserve swindling for being retards for it was so easy for
        the duo of Tinubu and Fashola to dupe the 17 million Lagosians with only a broom
        and without firing any shot to rob them all in broad daylight. What a people!

        I am concerned with my own people. I am talking about Yorubas. It is only the few bastards among us who will vote for Mr. Goodluck Jonathan on March 28. We Yorubas spoke on this in Ibadan on March 19. Does that help you?

    • burning spear

      Maybe it was Jonathan who asked Akintola to fight with Awo-and have the Fulanis murder him later after using him—————-to achieve their goals———Again was-Abiola not used by the Fulanis to insult d same Awo?—And did Buhari not spend money from PTF to assassinate–kudirat via SGT Rogers—? The money for their operations came from PTF which Buhari headed mumu—————time for the Yorubas TO ASK WHY THE POST OF SPEAKER WAS HANDED OVER TO THE FULANIS BY TINUBU–and stop blaming Jonathan for their own mistakes

      • Babawale Akinola

        Presdient Jonathan alias burning spear-Whatever your name you call yourself-burning spear or burning hoe, the point is that I am talking about my own people and NOT your people. We know a few Yorubas you gave money to-the ọmọ ọdọs -boy boy servant- among us. Some are the hungry thug Gani Adams who you gave oil pipeline contract to. But the Youbas spoke in Ibadan on March 19, and we the Yoruba people said it is only the few Yoruba bastards -omo ale among us who will vote for you-Goodluck Jonathan on March 28. Finally, may I remind you -Goodluck Jonathan that you freed Al Mustapha the head of the Abacha butchers-who killed Kudirat Abiola. Does that help you? It is only the omo ale among us the Yorubas who will vote for Goodluck Jonathan who freed the killer of Kudirat Abiola.

    Richard Grenell, a former envoy of the United States of America, has warned Nigerians not to elect former military dictator, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), of The All Progressives Congress in the March 28 Presidential election.

    Buhari

    The former spokesman for four United States Ambassadors to the United Nations, noted that Buhari if elected will be a diaster for Nigeria and Africa, stressing that he will signal trouble for the West’s fight against ISIS and terrorism throughout the Middle East.

    He urges Nigerians to re-elect President Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

    He made this known in an article titled, Nigeria on the brink and published on Washington Times, of Thursday, March 19, 2015.

    Nigerian company, ACT.Technologies Limited where Tinubu the leader of APC, has a substantial interest, was awarded a N2.6 billion contract by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to produce the PVCs, which was in turn sub-contracted to a Chinese firm.

    This is coming as the Chairman of the commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega, on Thursday decried the antics of politicians ahead of the elections, noting that their actions were becoming a threat to the conduct of peaceful polls.

    Based on the electronic payments exclusively obtained from INEC by THISDAY, the transfers showed that over N2.6 billion was paid to the Nigerian company for the production and supply of over 68.8 million PVCs within a period of seven months.

    It was further gathered that the PVCs were expected to be produced at a unit cost of N65.

    THISDAY gathered that the electronic payment mandate for the production of the PVCs was routed through two banks, an Islamic Bank – JAIZ Bank – and the First City Monument Bank (FCMB) Limited between 2013 and 2014, which showed that ACT.Technologies charged with the production of the PVCs had been fully paid, but is yet to supply all the PVCs for the elections.

    A breakdown of the payment mandate showed that INEC on February 14, 2013 paid the sum of N489,937,500 to ACT.Technologies, being part payment for the production of the PVCs. The money was paid through JAIZ Bank.

    This is the most sensible and balanced article I have read in a long time. Unfortunately, most victims of ethnic violence are the innocents and the beneficiaries are the political elites that derive power from ethnic divisions. It is easy to commit atrocity against a demonized group, and the Fulani’s are truly demonized, and most of the people responsible for the demonization are Fulani political leaders stupidly displaying their ethnic chauvinism, base on ignorant ethnocentrism. A good example is El Rufai saying that “anyone that kills a Fulani takes a hundred year loan”. Does he understand that a five year old Birom with an AK 47 will do as much damage as a 20 year old Fulani with the same.
