PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation To Sue APC Over Buhari’s Health

APC-vs-PDP

The Ogun state chapter of the Goodluck Jonathan Presidential Campaign Organisation has said they will be taking APC to court over the state of mind and physical health of their Presidential candidate. The organisation maintained that Buhari is sick, and urge the All Progressives Party not to drag the country back into the Yar’adua days. Here’s part of what the statement signed by its director of media and publicity, Steve Oliyide says;

“In light of these and in conformity with section 137 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended), we hereby wish to make public of our resolve to challenge the state of mind and physical health of General Buhari in a competent court of law and demand that a thorough medical examination be carried out on him to ascertain if he is capable of holding the highest office in the land in line with the provisions of the constitution.

“It is even more worrisome that in spite of the embarrassment the nation recently suffered with the Yar’Adua saga, the APC that is busy hallucinating about taking over power at the center has not found it expedient to come straight on this germane matter.

“We wonder why the opposition party is spending so much time and resources to conceal the true state of health of the former dictator. Moreso, we find it rather ridiculous and a grand insult to Nigerians, that the opposition party has continued to play “hide and seek” whenever the issue of General Buhari’s health comes up.”

“But history as taught us that the presidential position comes with lots of physical challenge and huge mental demands and as such a proposed occupant of such position must be at least 90 per cent healthy and of a very sound mind.”

10yr old Nigerian girl accepted on university course in the UK to study maths degree

She spends her spare time in a similar way to many other ten-year-old girls – playing with Barbie dolls and making loom bands. But the key difference between Esther Okade and other children her age is that she has been accepted to study for a university maths degree – despite not going to school.

Esther, from Walsall, West Midlands, has enrolled on an Open University course months after she passed her A-levels – and wants to study for a PhD before running her own bank.

The girl, who gained a C grade in her maths GCSE aged six, has joined the course which started this month. Her younger brother Isiah is already studying for his A-levels – also aged six.

The siblings are both home-schooled by their mother Omonefe, who has converted the living room of their semi-detached, three-bedroom house into a makeshift classroom.

Mathematician Mrs Okade, 37, said: ‘Esther is doing so well. She took a test recently and scored 100 per cent. Applying to the university was an interesting process because of her age.

‘We even had to talk to the vice-chancellor. After they interviewed her they realised that this has been her idea from the beginning. From the age of seven Esther has wanted to go to university.

‘But I was afraid it was too soon. She would say, “Mum, when am I starting?”, and go on and on and on. Finally, after three years she told me, “Mum, I think it is about time I started university now”.’
Mrs Okade added that Esther – who will study for her degree at home – was ‘flying’ and ‘so happy’ when she was accepted by the university, and wants to be a millionaire.

She said: ‘For now we want her to enjoy her childhood as well as her maths. By the time she was four I had taught her the alphabet, her numbers, and how to add, subtract, multiply and division.

‘I saw that she loved patterns so developed a way of using that to teach her new things. I thought I would try her with algebra, and she loved it more than anything.’
Esther stunned her parents last year when she achieved a B grade in her pure maths A-level.
She applied to the Open University last August – and after a phone interview, an essay and an exam, she was told in December that she had been accepted onto the course.
Her father Paul, 42, a managing director, added: ‘I cannot tell you how happy and proud I am as a father. The desire of every parent is to see their children exceed them, and take the family name to great heights, and my children have done just that.’

CAN DENIES BRIBERY ALLEGATION

CAN

 

 

 

 

Following the widespread allegation by Pastor Musa Dikwa that some respected Christian leaders in Nigeria collected bribe to campaign against APC’s presidential candidate, the Christian Association of Nigeria has denied the alleged N7bn given to its president, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, by President Goodluck Jonathan, to campaign for his re-election.

CAN, in a statement signed by its secretary-general, Rev. Musa Asake, said that the Christians body is not a political party and does not get involved in partisan politics, saying that members of CAN belong to different political parties, and it is therefore surprising to hear that CAN is campaigning for one presidential candidate.

Asake said that, ordinarily, they would have ignored what he described as “baseless and worthless” allegation, but they could not ignore it presently, because of the vulnerable public which believes in anything, no matter how incredible the source could be, especially in this era of politics.

Asake said: “For the avoidance of doubt, CAN has no knowledge of any N7bn transaction as alleged by Musa Dikwa who claims to be the executive director of a non-existent group, Voice of Northern Christian Movement.

“Revered men of God, including CAN President, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, , Bishop David Oyedepo of Winners Chapel and Pastor Bosun Emmanuel, secretary-general of National Christian Elders Forum, are too upright to be linked with any such deal. CAN is, therefore, not surprised to see Musa Dikwa doing a yeoman’s job the next day through his allegations. This is the hand of Esau but voice of Jacob.”

CAN said the allegation by Dikwa was master-minded by those who were not happy with their recent press statement in which they denounced the endorsement of the presidential candidate of the APC, General Muhammadu Buhari by a group of people using the name of different Christian organisations to perpetrate fraud.

“We still insist that Buhari has fallen into wrong hands, because his endorsement for the March 28 general election by Northern Christian Leaders Eagle-Eye Forum led by Aminchi Habu is fraudulent.

“We are, therefore, calling on security agencies to commence investigation into the activities of this Voice of Northern Christian Movement and Musa Dikwa to unravel the N7bn mystery which is intended by their sponsors to throw the country into serious crisis.

“We repeat, for emphasis, that neither Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, Bishop David Oyedepo, Pastor Bosun Emmanuel and CAN was given any money by the Presidency, let alone N7bn. The allegation is the height of mischief and desperation.

“Unfortunately, our psyche as a nation has been bastardised and abused by the institutionalised corruption introduced by successive military rulers (in uniform and out of uniform) that we no longer believe that anyone can speak the truth without financial inducement or gratification. Fortunately, there are still people in the nation who act without financial inducement,” CAN stated.

ABUAD Students Cry Out Over Hike in School Fees

abuadStudents of Afe Babalola University Ado Ekiti (ABUAD), have sent a save-our-soul message to some prominent media houses in the country, over what they described as undue hike in their school fees.

See what they wrote here…..

“Behold the most expensive university in Nigeria. In view of the current hike in fees which is really bizarre, we as students have expressed our sincere disappointment but this is not a single battle. Initially, the fees was approximately N1.7m but rose overnight to N2.6m. Our parents are complaining and we are feeling their pains because they want us to achieve our dreams.

We really need the social media to join us in this battle. This exploitation must stop. We can’t protest because we will be expelled

Another student wrote;

“I a 300level Medical Student at the Afe Babalola University. I would like to use this medium to inform you that there was an increase in the fees of medical students at the clinical level today by over 1.4 million Naira totaling the fee to about 2.6 million Naira.

There had been an outrageous and unacceptable outcry by the students. Please your support in this fight against extortion and exploitation would be so much appreciated by the entire student community.”
