Lagos – The ambition of Senator Oluremi Tinubu, lawmaker representing Lagos Central Senatorial District, to become the Deputy Senate President in the 9th National Assembly may not materialise as her husband, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), is opposed to the move.

 

 

According to Daily Independent findings, Tinubu is more interested in Lagos State producing the incoming Speaker of the House of Representatives, a position Femi Gbajabiamila, the incumbent Majority Leader of the House of Reps, is seriously eyeing.

Credible sources said it was impossible for Lagos State to produce both the Deputy Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives in the same dispensation.

Tinubu’s efforts to ensure Gbajabiamila emerges the speaker in the current dispensation hit a brick wall when the lawmakers, in concert with their colleagues in the Peoples Democratic Party (APC), elected Yakubu Dogara, the incumbent speaker, to lead them.

Speaking on the latest development, our source, an elected member of the House of Representatives, said Tinubu was leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that what happened in June 2015 when the National Assembly elected their leaders did not repeat itself.

“Yes, the desire of Senator Oluremi Tinubu for the Deputy Senate President position is real, given her experience as a ranking female lawmaker, but it is also clashing with the desire of her husband to ensure Lagos State produces the speaker of the House of Representatives.

“It is likely that the APC will zone the speakership position to the South-West as they did in 2015, and our preferred candidate is Femi Gbajabiamila, the current Majority Leader.

“Asiwaju (Tinubu) is not really keen about his wife becoming the Deputy Senate President as this may jeopardise his desire to have Gbajabiamila occupy the position of speaker.”

Another party chieftain also said Tinubu had not discussed the issue of Senator Oluremi’s ambition with them, adding that “it is not feasible”.

“He is more interested in Lagos producing the speaker. As it stands, Remi Tinubu’s ambition to become Deputy Senate President is not feasible,” the party chieftain said.

In a related development, Prince Tony Momoh, a former Minister of Transport, on Tuesday said President Muhammadu Buhari would not interfere in the process of choosing leadership positions in the incoming National Assembly.

Speaking with Daily Independent, Momoh, one of the national leaders of the ruling APC, said it was unfair for anyone to try to decide for the legislative arm of government its leaders when, by the constitution, they were an independent arm of government.

He said: “The fact is, there are three arms of government: the legislature, the executive, and the judiciary. Each has its own internal operations and operates independent of the other.

“There is the tendency for each one to aspire, develop, or evolve a personality of its own.

“In the National Assembly, you have all the parties coming together to make laws for the country.

“In the making of that law, they have their own ways of choosing their leaders. Nobody can impose leaders on them because, historically, imposed leaders never last.

“In 1999, when we came in as the ruling party (I was in PDP then), we had a preference for the late Chuba Okadigbo as Senate President.

“Unfortunately, someone that the then president, Olusegun Obasanjo, wanted emerged as president of the Senate.

“His name was Evan Enwerem. But because the lawmakers didn’t want him, it was just a matter of time before Okadigbo came.”

The witness said he only heard about a “central server” from the INEC chairman.


Former Aviation Minister, Osita Chidoka, says he has never seen the server used by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for collation of results.

Chidoka, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is also witness in a case challenging President Muhammadu Buhari at the 2019 presidential election.Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, had claimed that he defeated President Buhari with at least 1.6 million votes according to data obtained from the INEC server.

Speaking at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja on Friday, July 19, 2019, Chidoka said he does not know what the server looks like.

Chidoka, who was a collation officer during the election, maintained that the INEC chairman had said that results would be transmitted from card readers to the central server.“I have not seen the server but INEC consistently told us of the server and the INEC Chairman at the national collation of results of the election acknowledged the existence of the server,” he said.

“I was there when the results were collated,” Chidoka emphasised.
He acknowledged that collation of results was also done manually

“Kogi deserves better,” Melaye tells voters to elect him as Kogi State Governor.

Senator Dino Melaye (Kogi West – PDP) has urged voters to elect him the new Kogi State governor because the state deserves better than it’s currently getting.

The lawmaker, who was recently re-elected to the National Assembly, had officially joined the race for the November 16 governorship election earlier in June 2019.

He said he cannot look away from the struggles of the state which he noted can be corrected with the right leadership.

“I cannot look away when poverty is ravaging our dear state as if we don’t have resources to turn the fortune of the people around. 

“How can I look away when violence, hooliganism, and intimidation is fast becoming the order of the day.

“I cannot look away when the hope of the average person is being destroyed against the wish of the founding and patriotic fathers and mothers of Kogi State.

“If I look away, then I’m not the Dino you’ve come to know,” he said.

Melaye blamed many of his legal troubles with the Police on Bello whom he’s accused several times of plotting to kill him.

Melaye referenced these troubles in his video, noting that his persecution was a consequence of speaking up for the common man.

“The time to speak is over. It is time to act and bring the people of this great state the progress we’ve spoken about for too long.

“I may not know much, but this one thing I know – that Kogi people deserve something better than what they have right now.

“If you feel the same, then this is your ambition. Let us all rally round and change the sorry state we’ve become. This is the people’s agenda.

“Kogi State is definitely going to be better with Dino Melaye,” the 45-year-old said.

PDP Looting Govt Properties In Imo – Okorocha Claims

Published

on

Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has accused the State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of embarking on a looting spree, ahead of the May 2019, inauguration.

This was made known on Friday, in a press release signed by Sam Onwuemeodo, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Okorocha.

The statement reads in full:

“We want to inform the general public and Imo people in particular, that the members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the State, have embarked on systematic and violent looting of properties owned by the State, and brought or installed by Governor Rochas Okorocha. In doing that, they have adopted various unconventional tactics.

“They have removed most of the solar street lights and other beauteous installations in the State capital. They have removed expensive seats kept in public buildings. They have also begun to snatch official cars, especially from the women appointees. And they operate mostly at night.

“They have formed themselves into Property Recovery Committees and Task Forces, and they claim to have been set up and inaugurated by Chief Emeka Ihedioha, who was declared winner of the March 9, 2019, Governorship election in the State.

“And they have continued to accuse the outgoing government of looting. And in doing that, they have not been able to associate any government functionary with any of their false claims or show evidence of their claims.

“We have also been informed that they clashed with one of the Contractors, over some construction materials at the Heroes Square, when they prevented the Contractor from conveying the materials to his site and had tried to move the materials, but the Contractor resisted them.

“The PDP members have not changed and will never change, with their awkward attitude this time. The irony also is that, in doing these absurd things, they do not care how the generality of Imo people feel. This is regrettable.”

I’m Still A Bonafide Member Of APC And I Have No Plan To Dump The Party — Okorocha

Published

on

Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has said pictorial image being circulated on the social media, depicting his discussions with some officials of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to join the party, is not true.

Okorocha has been placed on suspension by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In his reaction, at the weekend, Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Sam Onwuemeodo, urged the public to disregard such picture, accusing his political detractors as being behind such postings, clarifying that the picture in question was taken long ago.

The governor believed the declaration of PDP candidate as the governor- elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), was wrongly done.

The statement said:

“This photograph is as old as the APC government in 2015. But those who were declared winner of the governorship election in lmo with votes from the three local councils of Mbaise have been making fruitless efforts to blackmail Governor Rochas Okorocha to see if that could help them go free with their electoral fraud. They posted this picture on social media with badly written statement and falsely claiming that the governor was in a PDP meeting today. ”

Okorocha said he was optimistic that any stolen mandate would be retrieved at the appropriate time.
