Ahead of this Saturday’s governorship election in Ondo State, President Muhammadu Buhari will not attend today’s grand finale rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
A presidency source told our correspondent that the president who has a very busy itinerary today will be represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Our correspondent also gathered that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the party, will also not be in attendance.
A top party source and close associate of the former Lagos State governor said while he is in total support of Akeredolu’s reelection, his decision to stay away from the rally “may be due to precautionary measures owing to the COVID-19 pandemic”.
He, however, said several serving state governors, deputy governors, former governors and serving ministers will be led to the rally by Governor Mai Mala Buni, who is chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of the party and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, who is the chairman of the National Campaign Council of the APC in Ondo State.
Tinubu was present during the flag-off of the party’s campaign in September where he also commissioned some projects completed by Akeredolu.
The rally will mark the end of campaign activities of the party’s candidate, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and his running mate, Lucky Ayedatiwa.
“The president will not attend the rally and that has been communicated to the APC leadership in Ondo State. He will be represented by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo”, our source stated.
In a related development, Ondo State Commissioner for Information, Donald Ojogo, has said residents of the state will be making a very wise decision by re-electing Governor Rotimi Akeredolu for second term in office.
Speaking with Daily Independent, Ojogo noted that the reelection of Akeredolu for a second term of four years would allow the governor to consolidate on his achievements and deliver on his campaign promises to the electorate.
Ojogo, who said Akeredolu is contesting on a tripod of hard work, performance and integrity, added that the people of Ondo knows the governor as a honest and forthright politician who will not promise what he cannot do.
He said replacing the governor will amount to abandoning major ongoing projects in the state such as the Deep Sea Port and other laudable projects the governor couldn’t complete in his first term.
“Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has performed creditably well in his first term in office. He is determined to do more if given the opportunity to come back for a second term.
“The administration of Governor Akeredolu has initiated the process of establishing a deep sea port in Ondo State. Only his return for a second term can drive this process through. Else, all the progress made on the deep sea port will be abandoned by another governor just like Mimiko abandoned it for eight years.
“There are new projects that cannot be finished in his first term. There is a need to return him for a second term so that these projects will not be abandoned. Despite the various projects he has completed, Governor Akeredolu is still initiating new projects”.

The palliative materials that were delivered to all the states of the federation for distribution to vulnerable citizens following the Covid-19 challenges and which have become subject of mass action in some states, have long been distributed in Borno by the pro-people government of Professor Babagana Umara Zulum.

The materials were delivered to the states by the federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.

Videos being shown in many states point to angry and hungry citizens storming warehouses where such palliative were stored and carting them away in a manner that suggest a new dimension to the #ENDSARS protest in parts of the country.

The news is that in Borno state, all the warehouses of the palliatives have long been emptied and promptly distributed to the needy and other vulnerable citizens.

The Governor, Professor Zulum has wasted no time in given orders that the goods be given out through a modality that had been used overtime in different platforms on IDPs all around the states.

The Governor had established an equitable, transparent and foolproof method of distributing materials to displaced persons and other vulnerable groups who have, in the last ten years, been rendered destitute by the activities of the insurgents.

20201023 124650 BlendCollage Advice and Awareness to President Buhari - Prof. Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia

Prof. Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia said President Muhammadu Buhari had made a mistake in accepting that he was being called a good man.

Prof. Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia, the P.R.P candidate for governor of Katsina State, made the announcement on his Facebook account.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has made a big mistake by accepting to be called an honest man, and today he has been denied by God, because God is truthful.

“After all, in his words he shows that he is the most talented person in the world, while God is the Expert!

In the same way, Buhari criticized everyone’s work, and then God made him tired too!

Then he showed the Southerners the full Love, forgetting that the Southerners were not experienced!

Finally, whose city is it?

As long as Buhari does not repent to God, despite his failures, and admit that he made a mistake, and seek God’s help, he will never succeed again, except to reap losses!

I Aliyu Abdullahi Jibia, by God willing I will continue to inform him this, until the end of my life, until he changes!

I will do this, because with my gums this government had been set.
