Fani-Kayode Backs Aliyu For 2015 Presidency

Published

on

The search for a standard-bearer for the yet-to-be registered All Progressives Congress may have started as former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has urged the Niger State Governor Babangida Aliyu to contest the 2015 presidential poll.

Fani-Kayode, who spoke with reporters on Monday in Minna, said he was in the state to “consult with important people about the Nigeria project.”

He said, “Nobody can ignore Niger State, nobody can ignore Minna; anyone that ignores the state does so at his or her own peril.”

Though not confirmed, Fani-Kayode reportedly held talks with former military heads of state, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida and Abdulsalami Abubakar.

The former minister, while recommending Aliyu for the country’s presidency in 2015, said, “The governor is honest, straight forward and courageous.”

Fani-Kayode, who recently defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the APC, said the people of Niger State should be proud of Aliyu because “despite all challenges, he has come out to do what is right.”

The former minister said, “When you want to consider the bright stars of Nigeria for 2015, consider Governor Aliyu.”

He added, “If the PDP fails to pick Governor Aliyu as its presidential standard-bearer for 2015 election, the opposition will be delighted to have him. Any group of people that will be privileged to have Aliyu should be grateful.

“For 2015, we need forthright men that will stand against tyranny and injustice. We need men that will fight for democracy.”

Fani-Kayode also explained why he left the PDP, saying the party had lost focus and abandoned Nigerians.

He alleged that the PDP-led Federal Government had since 2007 squandered the nation’s resources, resulting in the depletion of its foreign reserves, and the excess crude account.

The aviation minister in the former President Olusegun Obasanjo administration added that there was increasing corruption, security challenges and high unemployment rate in the country.

Noting that he had advised Obasanjo to leave the PDP, Fani-Kayode said there was the need for people of like minds to come together to save the country from the party.

He added that if President Goodluck Jonathan continued as president beyond 2015, “Nigeria will be worse than Zaire.”

Canvassing a change in the nation’s leadership, Fani-Kayode said the PDP-led Federal Government, which he thought would bring about progress, had only succeeded in bringing retrogression to the polity.

He also described the suggestion by the chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees, Chief Tony Anenih, to give automatic ticket to Jonathan and the governors seeking second term in office as “dangerous” and a plan to turn Nigeria to communist “China and Socialist Republic of Russia.”

“Marrying Adesua is the second best decision I made in my adult life” – Banky W

Published

on

Banky W and Adesua Etomi-Wellington are marking their third wedding anniversary today and the couple left sweet posts on Instagram.

The singer shared a video from their wedding and spoke of their love journey.

He wrote:

3 years ago, Susu and I made the decision to love each other forever. But the only reason forever is even possible, is because we made the decision to make God our foundation. And while a foundation is the part of the house that people don’t see, it’s by far the most important.

Because you can fix cracks in the walls, refurbish the rooms and repaint the halls, but you can’t get the foundation wrong if you want any chance of the house standing at all. The structural integrity of a house requires a foundation that is built to last.

I recently heard a Pastor say that love can’t keep a marriage going… he said it takes God and commitment. I think maybe he had a bit of a misunderstanding of what love really means. Because… well, God IS love. And love is commitment. Without both, it certainly isn’t love and it definitely won’t work. People sometimes think Susu led me to God. But it’s not true. God led me to Susu. And He has kept us through it all.

Marrying @adesuaetomi is the 2nd best decision I made in my adult life. The best was re-dedicating my life to Christ.

Susu, I am thankful for you, and grateful to you. You are everything I want and much more than I deserve. You mean the world to me and I intend to spend the rest of my life proving it. I love you now more than ever.
3 years down, I’m looking forward to forever.

I love you. Happy Anniversary Shuga.

“Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast. It is not proud…It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
– 1 Cor 13:4..8

“… and the rains descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.”
– Matt 7:26

Adesua shared the same video on Instagram and told Banky that apart from Jesus, he is the light of her life.

She wrote:

Three years? Seems like yesterday. Seems like forever.
Three years with my bestie.
Everyone knows you’re my husband but today I want to thank you for being my best friend.
The most attentive, loving, funny, caring, inspiring friend I have ever had.
I thought I knew how to love but omo, you have schooled me.
I never knew it was possible to be with someone this long and not have it be riddled with tons of fights. I’m glad for our low voiced intense conversations. Lol
You don’t make me feel crazy, I don’t have to yell before I’m heard. I don’t have to worry. I don’t second guess how you feel about me. I know I’m valued, as I should be.
Thank you bubz, for just being a correct human being. For the heart that you have. For being quick to be sorry when you’re wrong (whispers…even when you’re not. Lol) (I do the same sha)
For not putting your ego before us. For giving me a home that’s my safe haven. I’m grateful for the home we have built. I always look forward to coming home and it takes a lot to even get me out of the house. Lol.
God has done the most marvellous things these past 3 years. May he continue to be the 3rd cord in this threefold cord. As long as he lives and he shields and we keep him part of our lives, we will never be easily broken.
Apart from Jesus, you are def the light of my life.
May that light continue to shine brighter and brighter.
You, my darling are a force to be reckoned with and the world will remember your name.
@bankywellington I love you doesn’t seem to suffice anymore but I’ll say it anyway. I love you with every fibre of my being. Let’s do this till we’re old and grey and maybe in heaven too?
