Celebrating Chibok’s recapture ‘a disgrace’ – Oyegun

APC Chairman John Odigie Oyegun

The National Chairman of the All Progressives congress, APC, John Oyegun, has asked all presidential aspirants in the party to be prepared for the serious task ahead if they eventually emerge as the flag bearer of the party for the 2015 presidential election.

Mr. Oyegun informed APC presidential aspirants that they are seeking to lead a country that is “seriously in need of redemption”.

“Every day that passes, the need for change becomes evident in this country, and the urgency for change becomes manifest,” he said.

The APC Chairman said the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is simply concerned in how to retain power at all cost, thereby exhibiting serious forms of impunity that the country cannot afford to continue to bear.

“Just this morning, seven members of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, met and purportedly impeached the Speaker of a twenty six member House of Assembly.

“This is the kind of lawlessness that is leading us into the multitude of problems that we have in this country today, and it is due to the lack of payment of any form of reasonable attention to the true
priorities of this country,” he said.

Mr. Oyegun also said the PDP has inflicted so much havoc on the country and has no time to even see what the insurgent group, Boko Haram is doing to the nation.

He said it is a disgrace that a country like Nigeria is celebrating the recapture of Chibok from the insurgents, saying, “Boko Haram drove you out of Chibok, and you manage to reinforce and come back to retake it and you are celebrating? What is there to celebrate?” he asked.

He said such action has shown the extent to which Nigeria has degenerated, adding that “it is the kind of responsibility that falls on your shoulders.

“All our aspirants should have it at the back of their minds that you are dealing with a nation that needs salvaging and we are dealing with a ruling party that just does not care,” Mr. Oyegun said.

In a brief remarks earlier, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar said he was at the secretariat to return his expression of interest and nomination forms after “being the first to collect the forms and also the first to return them duly completed”.

Mr. Abubakar assured the Chairman and members of the National Working Committee that he will continue to be a dedicated and loyal party member no matter the outcome of the selection process.

    Well said Oyegun, Sometimes I wonder how many battalions the so called boko haram insurgents has that they take over a whole town that is under emergency rule.
    Is really pathetic and all I can say is that CHANGE is serious needed and an end to the boko haram activities in Nigeria.

      Stop displaying graphic s+upidity online. Who’s “we” and who appointed a drunken Aborigine like you Nigeria’s vuvuzela… eh? The most senior satanic acolyte in Nigeria today is CAN thug, Oletsejafor… Dumbo is his cohort in their perpetration of mass murder in our North East. Creek crooks. After 2015, they, along with evil miscreants & urchins like you are headed for The Hague to face criminal charges for abductions of Chibok girls, rape, human trafficking, mass murders, terrorism… and hundreds of counts of graft. Throughout Northern leadership by the Hausa/Fulani, did Nigerians wake up to the news that a Hajia had lifted $20bn from any ministry? Takes a dazed & senseless animal like you to come up with such silly comment, a “pet” is a cat, dog, birds & fish… and have no business thinking out loud. Again, animals cannot be allowed to mingle with humans, Aborigines must go back to Papua New Guinea! DRUNKARDS!!!

        Why are you Yorubas hellbent on insulting anybody east of the Niger who makes any contribution to this blog? You people believe that once you knock off Great Jonah and install your Fulani master Imam Buhari unprecedented peace and prosperity will reign in Arewa and your Odduwaland. Not so, buddy.

      If FG is living up to expectation, by now, they should have caged those criminal elements in APC. Forget politics, invite them, question them and possibly detain them whenever they say or do anything that suggests their advance knowledge of bomb blast. Then others will learn.

  • Mr. Abdin

    I like the courage of the APC chairman for coming out to tell Nigerians the truth there is nothing worth celebration capturing chibok. The security has deteriorated that was why Atiku was calling for self protection.

    This is the worst Governor of Edo stae. Oyegun that show Governors how to loot. This corrupt man is going about delivery his master Tinubu message

    PARTY of failures cannot rule nigeria

  • Joseph Ubiagba

    I totally agree. It is scandalous, the height of Nigerian military failure. The army is here in Niger delta collecting big allowances from malfeasing companies, harassing public, drink beer and pepper soup in the cities. Whereas, Nigerians are being mangled in the north by their own people. Its a shame for our now turned city and township military.
