Think for Before You Vote


Nigerians need to reflect on where the country was in 2015 when he took over power and where the country is today, before deciding on who to vote for. Here are the situations then, and now:



1. In 2015 fuel was N87/litre and now N145/litre



2. In 2015 exchange rate was N187/Dollar and now N360/Dollar



3. In 2015 a bag of rice was N7000 and now N18000 a bag



4. In 2015 a mudu of gari was N120 and now N600 per mudu



5. In 2015 kerosene was N50/litre and now N350/litre



6. In 2015 killings were limited to North East now it's everywhere.



7. In 2015 Fulani herdsmen were hardly heard of, now they are reigning, killing at will in Taraba, Benue, Plateau,  Enugu, Nasarawa, Kaduna, Katsina, Zamfara, Sokoto, Niger, etc.



8. In 2015 we hardly heared about a group called Miyetti Allah. But today Miyetti Allah reigns supreme; they boast of extra-judicial killings.



9. In 2015 Nigeria was the fastest growing economy in Africa but today Nigeria is the poverty capital of the world



10. In 2015 Nigerian youths were described as great, intelligent and innovative but today they are described as lazy Nigerian Youth.



11. In 2015 freedom of speech and rule of law were taken for granted by Nigerians but now these are rare, threatening our hard earned democracy.



12. In 2015 Nigerians were much more united, but today Nigerians are more divided than ever



13. In 2015 youths were being offered jobs, but presently 4 million Nigerians who had job, have lost their jobs and no replacement.



14. In 2015 all sections of the country were represented in the nation's security council, but now it is almost 100% one ethnic and one religious group all from the North.


Conclusively this another opportunity to decide who will rule again for next four years. Vote wisely.



Kingsley Moghalu Reacts to Professor Soyinka’s Endorsement


Professor Soyinka, a professor, had announced  the decision of his Citizen Forum to throw their weight behind Mr Moghalu, describing the YPP candidate as the most qualified among the presidential candidates.

However, the presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party, Kingsley Moghalu, has described the endorsement of his candidature by Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka, as “humbling.”

Mr Moghalu, a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, said in a statement Saturday that the endorsement was important because of Mr Soyinka’s reputation and the “elaborate process” his Citizen Forum went through before reaching their decision.

“Our party – the Young Progressives Party – and I, salute the courage and the good judgment of the Nobel Laureate and icon of democratic struggle in Nigeria,” Mr Moghalu said in the statement.



DINO MALAYE, SAYS APC IS SICK

Upon resumption of plenary on Wednesday, May 30, after battling with police and being on admission in the hospital, he had opted to sit with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmakers, a decision which resulted in rowdy at the Red Chambers.

Senator Dino Melaye has criticised the current state of the All Progressives Congress (APC), noting that the party is sick and "suffering from a dreadful continental abnormality." Melaye said further that he does not have a problem with the APC, "but my party may have a problem with Nigerians because of the way it is presently being run.

In reaction to the question on which platform and the political party he would be contesting to retain his seat in 2019, Melaye said, "When we get to that bridge, we shall cross it." We can partner to make Nigeria progress but there is not supposed to be any romance," he said, adding that the role of the national assembly to check the excesses of the executive.

AISHA ALHASSAN -APC WILL RULE NIGERIA FOREVER

Crisis is normal in a big party like APC,” she said. “Once we can do our national convention, then we face the opposition PDP and I assure you that APC will win more states like Taraba in 2019. “I will make sure that in my zone, I follow up and by God’s grace Gombe and Taraba will be taken over in 2019. And don’t even talk about Nigeria because it’s already APC and it will continue to be APC forever.”

Alhassan also disclosed her intention to contest the Taraba State governorship election in 2019, saying: “I won the election in 2015 but I wasn’t destined to be Governor.


Aisha Alhassan is the Minister of Women Affairs, believes that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will rule Nigeria forever. Alhassan said this in Abuja on Monday while addressing journalists shortly after the inauguration of state chairmen of the party. She maintained that despite the wide-ranging rancour in the party, nothing would stop it from retaining power in 2019 and beyond.
