PDP to Tinubu: Don’t curry relevance with our party, mocks ‘his trip to Mecca’

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Tuesday berated the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for allegedly resorting to
hauling insults against the opposition party to curry political relevance.

It also alleged that Tinubu was ostensibly attacking the PDP for his selfish pecuniary interests.

PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan said this in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja.

He said by travelling to faraway Mecca, at this Ramadan period,
just to meet President Muhammadu Buhari and engage in gossips, invectives and diatribes against the PDP, Asiwaju Tinubu has further demonstrated nothing to offer towards the development of our
nation.

“It is atrocious that at the time other leaders are in the Holy Land offering prayers and supplications for our nation, Asiwaju Tinubu is in Mecca for photo-ops, playing dirty politics and hauling insults at other Nigerians just to curry relevance before President Buhari.

“The party noted that nothing but sheer hypocrisy would push Asiwaju Tinubu to engage in unholy praises of a failed administration in desperation to avert the purported threats by certain agents of the Buhari Presidency to expose him.

“This is the same Asiwaju Tinubu, who, in January 2018, at the 15th Annual Daily Trust Dialogue, berated the Buhari administration for its nepotism, incompetence, corrupt oil subsidy regime; blaming it for the high-level poverty in our country and counseled Nigerians to be guided by their conscience in electing leaders in the 2019 general elections.

“Asiwaju, in criticizing the Buhari administration held rightly that “too
much political and economic power resides in the hands of too few. This result in a society described by too much of unemployment, inadequate infrastructure, too little food, yet too much poverty,” he said.

“He added that under President Buhari, “rather than becoming a joyous nation, Nigeria has become a cruel playground where the fears and concerns of the average person get exploited but their interests never get promoted.”

The PDP, therefore, lambasted Tinubu for allegedly making allusion to its determination with Nigerians to retrieve Atiku Abubakar’s stolen Presidential mandate at the court, adding that no amount of blackmail can detract from this resolve.

Further, PDP said, “The party cautioned Asiwaju Tinubu to call himself to order,
particularly as Nigerians, including members of his party, the All
Progressives Congress (APC), have seen through his power-grabbing antics
and are now determined to give him the back seat treatment”.

MASSOB backs Obasanjo, accuses Buhari of planning to destroy S/east, S/south regions

The leadership of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign
State of Biafra (MASSOB) on Tuesday accused the federal government lead by President Muhammadu Buhari of alleged plot to destroy both the south-east and south-south regions.

The group made this known through a statement signed by the
Director of Information, Mr. Edeson Samuel and forwarded to DAILY POT in Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State.

MASSOB, however, applauded former President Olusegun Obasanjo for revealing the plans of President Buhari to use Boko Haram and ISIS to actualize the agenda of Islamization and fulanization of Nigeria.

The statement read, “Chief Obasanjo should not be crucified or condemned because he exposed the intended evil President Muhammad Buhari led Federal government is planning to unleash on people of southern and middle belt regions of Nigeria.

“MASSOB have conferred that the likes of Loretta Onochie and Alhaji Lai Mohammed have mortgaged their consciences for their selfish desires, presenting falsehoods to the citizens because they want to be relevant to the President Buhari’s administration.

“MASSOB commends Obasanjo for been courageous and eloquence in
revealing this unwanted truth, which the present government doesn’t
want to hear.

“It will be recalled that MASSOB have earlier exposed this Islamization agenda of President Muhammad Buhari in pursuit, projection and actualization of the grand command of Othman Dan Fodio which is to islamize/fulanize this geographical entity called Nigeria and destroy the entire southern Nigeria but nobody believed us.

“MASSOB has gathered many secret plans by the northern political and religious leaders against the southern region through Biafra Intelligence Agency (BIA).

“In early 1960’s, the north through Tafawa Balewa and Ahmadu Bello used Chief Akintola to destabilize the Western region, today they want to use Bola Tinubu to destabilize the political structure of the Southern region. That was the recent meeting of some northern leaders
in Saudi Arabia.

“MASSOB wishes to make it clearer again that there is no difference between Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen, the terrorist herdsmen where sent to go and destroy the South and Middle belt while the Boko Haram will carry their acts of terrorism in the northeast.

“That is why President Buhari can never declare Fulani herdsmen, a terrorist movement or even to condemn the killing of the innocent citizens by these foot soldiers of Islam called Fulani herdsmen,” the group stated.
