Kayode Ajulo a legal practitioner has revealed why the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, immediately resign from his position.
In a communique made available to Crystal News, Ajula stated that “It’s no news that the Supreme Court by a split of 4-3 dismissed the Petition filed by the People’s Democratic Party’s Aspirant for the 2020 Ondo State Governorship Election, Eyitayo Jegede SAN against the incumbent Governor of Ondo State and the All Progressives Congress.
“Without prejudice to the ratio decidendi of the majority decision of the Court, it is imperative to state prestissimo and very clearly too that with the unanimous position of the Apex Court that it appears the actions of the All Progressives Congress in permitting a sitting Governor as the Interim Chairman of the Party is in violation of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, it is my sincere view that the Interim Chairman of the All Progressive Congress should immediately step down.
“My humble but cosmic review of the judgment comes with an indication that the Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni has to vacate his seat, as the Chairman of APC with immediate effect.
“The provision of Section 183 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended) is clear and unambiguous to the effect that “The Governor shall not, during the period when he holds office, hold any other executive office or paid employment in any capacity whatsoever.”
“As a former National Secretary of Labour Party, I am quite aware and it is unassailable that the National Chairman and the National Secretary are the alter egos of a political party chartered with the day-to-day running of the party.
“It is, therefore, incontrovertible that the continuous stay of the Governor as Chief Executive Officer of the All Progressives Congress runs contrary to the provision of the Constitution and as such may be an albatross on the party, as all he had done before would be null and void, including the nomination of candidates within the period of his so-called Leadership of the party.
“In lending my two cents, it is apposite to assuage and hint the leadership of the party by reminding same of the decision of Lord Denning of over 5 decades in the case MACFOY v. UAC LIMITED (1961) 3 ALL E.R where the Learned Jurist held that: “If an act is void, then it is in law a nullity. It is not only bad but incurably bad. There is no need for an order of the court to set it aside.”
“Whichever way this issue is being tilted, permitting a Governor of a State to hold another executive office may create cravings in some Governors to become the State Chairman of their Political Parties as being recently tinkered by some of them.
“In order to nip this looming inglorious kismet in the bud, I thereby admonish that the acting Chairman of the All Progressives Congress should immediately step down as a stitch in time saves nine!”
Billionaire Businessman, Ifeanyi Ubah’s Wondrous Donation
No doubt, Ifeanyi Ubah, Chairman, Capital Oil, is generous to a fault. This top player in the nation’s oil and gas sector also has a large heart. Besides, he is unapologetically committed to the uplift of his community, while also helping the course of humanity.
The billionaire is fasting becoming one of the biggest philanthropists from the South East part of Nigeria has the milk of kindness running in his veins.
As proof of his fellow-feeling, the Senator representing Anambra South senatorial district in the National Assembly, has just made a wondrous donation of N500million to Anambra State, to support the fight against insecurity.
Ubah made the pledge during a visit to the state Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, at the Government House last Tuesday evening in Awka, the state capital.
The senator, however, made specifications on how the money would be spent.
Anambra State had for over a year been under the tight grip of criminals, who kidnap, kill and steal from residents until lately, when Soludo fought back.
Ubah in a statement signed by his Head of Media and Strategic Communications, Mr. Kamen Chuks Ogbonna, also explained how the funds would be used.
The senator was quoted as telling the governor that: “It takes a secure environment to sustain infrastructural development.
“I will complement your efforts with a series of interventions aimed at curbing capital flight from the zone and restore confidence in our people to return home and help in developing our economy.”
Stating how the funds would be spent, Ubah said N200million would be spent on the training of security personnel and provision of latest security communication gadgets for Anambra South vigilante groups.
He added that N300million would be for the provision of solar lights to further illuminate and strengthen the security architecture in Anambra South senatorial district.
The senator said the promise would all be implemented in the next three months.
2023: Tension In Alimoso As 3,000 Supporters Of APC Rep Aspirant Threaten Defection
”I Will Demolish Boko Haram and Banditry in 60 days if elected” – SDP Presidential Candidate, Adewole Adebayo
Presidential Candidate for Social Democratic Party ,SDP, Prince Adewole Adebayo, has promised Nigerians that he will end and demolish Boko Haram and banditry in his first 100 days in office if elected President in 2023. He also vowed that within 60 days, banditry, in any and every part of the country would have been totally wiped out from Nigerian soil.
“If the people in my government are not trying to be billionaires, the issue of banditry will be over within 60 days. Terrorism is a little complex but the Boko Haram fighters can be technically chased away from Nigerian soil within 100 days, that doesn’t mean they won’t be in the region. The strength of these Boko Haram and bandits is the ability to reinforce. That reinforcement ability is what makes look it like the Nigerian armed forces are not doing anything. They have a rapid reinforcement. If it takes you three weeks operation to dislodge them from the territory, they can use seven days to recalibrate and come back. So, my first 100 days you will be hearing Boko Haram from a long distance and the bandits, most likely will be former bandits, that is if they are alive at all”, he stated.
Speaking at a question and answer online programme “Symfoni” Adebayo said as a potential president, his vision about where Nigeria is headed and how to get there is clear in his head as men and women of character and integrity to help with the New Nigeria he envisioned, are already being sought.
Unlike his contemporaries, Adebayo said he didn’t have the luxury of having a political godfather to smoothen his path as all of them are dead, adding that, after the Almighty God, he relies on nobody.
“I am not lucky with godfatherism. Unfortunately, all my godfathers are dead. Aminu Kano, if he was alive, would have been my god father. Micheal Opara would have been another god father. Mbonu Ojike, it was who said government should serve the people. He would have been my god father, if he was alive. If I had a god father I won’t be running. The people that would have been god fathers are the ones running against me now”, he said.
Adebayo said two weeks after the elections have been won and lost, he will make public names of his ministers, not only for confirmation by the National Assembly, but for further scrutiny by the general public.
Said he: ” I will name my ministers two weeks after the elections. I assign portfolios to the ministers and allow Nigerians to judge them, question and interrogate them. I meet the service chiefs and behind to hear from them their challenges and how it can be tackled. As a potential winner of the coming election, I am already speaking with them. I don’t need to wait till when I would be sworn in before taking such action. I swing into action the moment the election is won and lost”.
Adebayo said he is not surprised about the sudden matching order given by the president to the minister of education to resolve the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU suspension of his members from classrooms, adding that its typical of the president. “Its not unusual from the president to allow issues to fester before taking decision.
I don’t want to be a president like that. It’s better not to be a president at all than allow crisis to fester for this long. Anybody who knows the president would know that he is a very good and decent man but I think he is on a wrong job, because this job requires you to know things and take action before they happen, and if they happen, to react swiftly. It is my hope that the matter is resolved. But even at that, by the time I assume office, I will cement it so that for the next 25 years, there won’t be crisis of ASUU with the Federal Government again because I will ensure there is autonomous for the sector. Remember that I went to America where I spent ten days and in the course of meetings, where we reached agreement with the black historical universities and colleges to come and assist Nigerian universities. At least, 2000 Americans professors will come to Nigeria on sabbatical and exchange to help us build up . Even if ASUU isn’t on strike , they don’t have enough equipment to produce quality graduates”.
