Gulak: Any Niger Deltan Against Jonathan’s Second Term Bid’s Not A True Son Of The South-South

Although the 2015 general elections is still two years away, the Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Dr. Ahmed Gulak, has launched a passionate appeal to the leaders and people of the South-South region of the country to give maximum support to the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.

 

Gulak, who was speaking while receiving a delegation of the Niger Delta Leaders’ Assembly in his office, said no indigene of the region in his right senses would stand against the realisation of the president’s second term ambition.

 

He said. “Anybody from the South-south and the Niger Delta who is against Goodluck Jonathan’s second term in office is not a true son of the Niger Delta. Whoever he may be, I believe every son of the Niger Delta must make every sacrifice for the success of Goodluck Jonathan”.

 

In a veiled reference to the purported no-love lost relationship between President Jonathan and the Rivers State Governor, Mr. Chibuike Amaechi, Gulak said it is only people with sinister agenda that would want to bring down their brother just because the opposition is cheering them on.

 

“We have seen very few of them who are hostile, who are recalcitrant, who are devilish, who are vicious, who want to bring down their brother because the opposition is clapping for them. The drummers are inside the bush and we have seen them dance naked.

 

“Those that said Jonathan will not be shall be put to shame. Those that hate President Jonathan with passion have failed to understand that God gives power to whosoever He wants; and that He can take away from whomever He wants and whenever He wants. But this time around God has given power to President Jonathan and all of us would have to put our hands on deck to help him,” he said.

 

The presidential aide, who explained that the president was doing his best to tackle the issue of insecurity in the country, added that the problem was a global phenomenon.

 

In his words, “It is not limited to Nigeria alone but the President is facing the challenge and we are succeeding”.

    This guy is almost Socrates, Plato and Aristotle combined. Lets extend it. Every North North man should stand behind Buhari, every true East East man should stand behind Ojukwu or Uwazurike or whosoever, every West West should stand Tinubu. Preaching the gospel of ethnicity and sectionalism. Please stop giving newspaper space to people who cannot contribute to the growth of this country.

In his letter, Senator Abbo explained that his decision to defect to the APC is because of the mismanagement of the PDP in Adamawa state by Governor Umaru Fintiri.

Senator Abbo who is a first-term lawmaker was elected in 2019 to the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Meanwhile, the name Senator Elisha Abbo became popular amongst Nigerians last year after he made headlines for slapping an attendant in a sex toy shop for ‘disrespecting’ him.

2023 Presidency: Bode George Cautions Buhari About Tinubu

Bode George, Tinubu

Chief Bode George, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against supporting Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress for the 2023 Presidency.

Bode George made this remark in a statement titled, “The jamboree visit to the Villa: My Birthday Offering.”

The former National Port Authority boss warned Buhari against falling to the antics of those who would ignore the issues of Lagos State to engage in a needless scheming in partisan engagement.

Bode-George also condemned the recent visit of some APC chieftains, Chief Bisi Akande, Prince Tajudeen Olusi, Dr Yomi Finnih, and Chief Segun Osoba to the State House, Abuja.

The PDP chieftain said: “The visit of Chief Bisi Akande, Prince Tajudeen Olusi, Dr Yomi Finnih, and Chief Segun Osoba to the seat of power in Abuja is needless, unnecessary, veiled in some poorly hidden agenda that is woven in apparently self-serving ulterior personalised desperation.

“It is easy to discern that the visit is stripped of any patriotic progression, lacking in balanced national leadership, voided of a spirit of sacrifice and developmental vision. The very absence of Bola Tinubu from the jamboree screams to high heavens that the meeting itself is a covert placatory softening of the ground for Tinubu himself. I am pretty certain that in his very absence, Tinubu occupies the centrality of the discussion.

“I will advise Baba Akande who governed Osun State with principled, incorruptible leadership to kindly help us drop off Bola Tinubu at Iragbiji as he makes his way back to Ila-Orangun, rather than engaging in fruitless pleading sessions for a man who is fixated on a warped pipe-dream about governing Nigeria. He should pay restitution for the egregious stripping of the Lagosian coffers.”
