Buhari will Defeat Atiku in 2019 – Re-elect Buhari Movement

Buhari to attend NDA graduation on Saturday

 

A pro-President Muhammadu Buhari group, Re-elect Buhari Movement (RBM), has said the emergence of former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 2019 general election is the strongest indication that the president will win the election on a platter of gold.

Congratulating the president ahead of the election, the RBM, in a statement by its convener, Mr. Emmanuel Umohinyang, boasted that President Buhari would give the former vice-president a bloodied nose in the coming poll, adding that the ratification of the president as the sole candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the election is a reward for good performance over the last three years.

According to the group, the president has lived up to his billing in the delivery of the three cardinal programmes he promised.

“First, we must thank God that the ratification has been done. We also appreciate the APC for giving Nigerians yet another opportunity to re-elect Buhari in 2019. On the cardinal programmes, he promised he has done excellently well and it is only proper that he be rewarded.

“The President came on board with an unblemished record of public service, and he has justified the confidence that some of us reposed in him in 2015. He will better his past record. We are happy he did not disappoint.

“We want to assure Nigerians again that since he did not disappoint in his first four years, he will not do it going forward. Among the 12 aspirants that jostled for the presidential ticket of the PDP, we do not think anyone of them can match the president in a free and fair election. The good thing about them is that they have been in public service and their antecedents are well known.

“The propaganda that their party has been rebranded is not true. PDP, we have always said, can never change. They are used to corruption. It is in their DNA. What therefore is before us in 2019 is not a contest between President Buhari, and Atiku, it is a contest between darkness and light,” the group said.

It added: “We have seen the 16 years of PDP, which Atiku was a part of, and we have seen over three years of President Buhari’s administration. Atiku’s emergence has even made the job easier for the president in 2019.”

Fayose denies report that he’s opening up to EFCC fraud allegation against him

Fayose submits self to EFCC

 

The former Governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose has denied reports that he has started opening up on allegations of corruption made against him by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

He said the reports are misleading and feeble attempt by the anti-graft agency to sustain its lies and campaign of calumny against him.  Read the statement below…

“Report by a section of the media that Fayose, had started opening up on allegations of corruption made against him by the EFCC is false, misleading and a feeble attempt by the anti-graft agency to sustain its lies and campaign of calumny against the former governor.

No amount of sponsored media reports will change the fact that as at today, the EFCC does not have any evidence to prosecute Fayose in court.

Fayose will only defend himself in the law court because EFCC has demonstrated that it is out to persecute him ostensibly because of his criticism of the President Muhammadu Buhari led APC government.

It is a fact that Fayose wrote to the EFCC on September 10, 2018 notifying the commission of his decision to make himself available on October 16, 2018. The EFCC replied by asking him not to wait till October 16 and that he should come on September 20, 2018.

Therefore, isn’t it funny that the same EFCC that was desperate to have Fayose report on September 20 is still keeping him in detention, four days after he willingly submitted himself?

Isn’t it now clear to all discerning minds that EFCC is only acting as an agent of persecution against perceived enemies of the APC and it is helping to keep Fayose out of circulation as desired by the powers that be?

Very soon, the public will still be fed with stories like; “Fayose writes confessional statement and eats it,” “he weeps in detention,” “begs to return loots among other familiar lies of the EFCC.”

Nigerians should just ignore the EFCC sponsored lies and continue to ask why the anti-graft agency has failed to charge Fayose to court despite the overwhelming evidence it claimed to have.

Most importantly, Nigerians should be rest assured that Fayose will not be intimidated even if he is detained for as long as the EFCC will be ready to take him to court. He won’t say more than what he has said which is denying the EFCC allegations.”
