Jonathan ready for Buhari, election, says PDP

Image
The Peoples Democratic Party has said President Goodluck Jonathan is ready to face Maj.Gen. Muhammadu Buhari(retd.) on March 28 for the Presidential election.
While Jonathan is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Buhari is the candidate of the main opposition party, the All Progressives Congress.
The APC has alleged that both Jonathan and his party were planning to scuttle the elections as they were alleged not to be ready.
The opposition party claimed that both the President and the PDP were afraid that they would be defeated during the election.
Responding to this, the Director of Media and Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, said that it would be foolhardy of anyone to say that President Jonathan was not ready for elections.
He also debunked the claim that the ruling party and the president were sponsoring some lesser political parties to shift the elections, especially in the North-East.
Fani-Kayode said, “How can anyone say we are…

Jonathan challenges Buhari to debate in Chatham House

Image
President Goodluck Jon­athan has challenged the presidential candi­date of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to a presidential debate at the Chatham House, London.
Jonathan, in a letter to Buhari through his Non-Governmental Organization, the Wind of Hope Foundation, signed by its Na­tional Coordinator, Mr. Ono Akpe, said he was ready to spon­sor Buhari to participate in the debate.
The APC presidential candi­date had earlier rejected taking part in a debate put together for presidential candidates for the forthcoming general elections by the Nigerian Elections Debate Group (NEDG), citing the com­position of the body as reason for his refusal. However, his recent outing at the Chatham House, where he outlined how he would fix Nige­ria, has generated controversy in the polity.
Jonathan said Buhari’s pre­sentation finally acknowledged the achievements of his admin­istration in growing the nation’s economy to becoming the larg­est in Africa, with a Gross …

Female Suicide Bomber Beaten To Death By Crowd In Bauchi

Image
A crowd beat to death a teenage girl accused of planning to be a suicide bomber and then set her body ablaze Sunday, according to police and witnesses at a northeastern Nigerian market.

Accordng to AP,a second suspect, also a teenage girl, was arrested at Muda Lawal, the biggest market in Bauchi city.



In Bauchi, the two girls aroused suspicion by refusing to be searched when they arrived at the gate to the vegetable market, said yam vendor Mohd Adamu. People overpowered one girl and discovered she had two bottles strapped to her body, he said. They clubbed her to death, put a tire doused in fuel over her head and set it on fire, he said.
It seems doubtful the girl was actually a bomber as she did not detonate any explosives when she was attacked, said Police Deputy Superintendent Mohammad Haruna. He described her as the victim of "mob action carried out by an irate crowd."

Image
Another block buster press release from Ekiti state governor. Read below... Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has called on Nigerians, especially Northern leaders to save the All Progressives Congress (APC) , Major General Mohammadu Buhari (rtd) from former Lagos State governor, Senator Bola Tinubu and his cabal in the APC.
The governor, who said he was worried that Tinubu and his cabal were pushing Buhari too much because of their selfish interests,  pleaded that; "Nigerians should appeal to Tinubu and his cabal to allow Buhari attend properly to his health." Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor said; "since last week Thursday, that Buhari appeared for less than two hours at the Chatham House where he said his doctors certified him fit and that he was returning to Nigeria for the 'final onslaught on the PDP,' he has simply disappeared from public glare."
He queried; "Isn't it strange…

APC also responds to FFK's Tinubu/Osinbajo allegation

Image
Find the APC press statement below... Our attention has been drawn to a statement credited to the Director of Media of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode on the All Progressives Congress and its leaders.Fani-Kayode alleges that Asiwaju Tinubu would become president by asking the Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo to resign after six months in office in the belief that the. President Muhammadu Buhari may have terminal health challenges.

That the message came through Mr. Femi Fani- Kayode who, just a few days ago, was brought to answer corruption charges, makes the message incredulous. The whole world knows the other reasons for the incredulity of any message delivered through him.

However, to the uninformed, there is no iota of truth in such allegation. It is the product of infantile, wild imagination of a convoluted, distorted and warped mind
In the APC, we do not indulge in oath-taking, pact-signing and such other rituals that the PD…

Jonathan plans to freeze Tinubu, Amaechi’s account — APC

Image
The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council on Saturday condemned an alleged plot by the President Goodluck Jonathan-led Peoples Democratic Party to cripple the campaign of the party’s presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd).
This was contained in a statement signed by the Director Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential campaign, Mr. Garba Shehu, in Abuja.
He said the APC Presidential campaign condemned the plot by the Jonathan-led ruling Peoples Democratic Party to clip the electoral success wings of the opposition APC, through a proposed grounding of aircraft and freezing of bank accounts belonging to stalwarts of the party.
According to him, the plot to destabilise the APC and cripple its flag-bearer, General Muhammadu Buhari, may be linked to the global attention on its candidate’s performance at the United kingdom’s Chatham House last Thursday.
The statement partly read: “The hint we gather from sources is that the government, through its agents, …
