PDP Crisis: Get On Your Knees And Beg Obasanjo, Fani-Kayode Tells Jonathan

Published

obasanjo-and-jonathan1Controversial former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has revealed that the solution to the crisis presently rocking the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, lies in President Goodluck Jonathan listening to the advice by former President Olusegun Obasanjo that he should not seek re-election in 2015.

”The only hope left for the PDP is if President Goodluck Jonathan listens to former President Olusegun Obasanjo and those behind him and drops his 2015 ambition. Failing that, the fight in the PDP will never end”, Fani-Kayode said in a statement.

Recalling the fate of those who dared to lock horns with the former president, Fani-Kayode stated, “The truth is that Obasanjo is one of the greatest political strategists that Nigeria has ever known and he is an extremely dangerous adversary. I know him well and his ways are deep. Ori Baba le ga ni (he’s very strong-headed). Go and find out what happened to all those that betrayed him or tried to kill him. Their end is never good.”

Calling on President Jonathan to swallow whatever pride he has and “get on his knees and beg his political mentor,” Fani-Kayode added, “Only Obasanjo, with the help and support of President Ibrahim Babangida and Vice President Abubakar Atiku, has the power, authority and moral gravitas within the PDP to call the dissidents to order and rally their support. Without that, President Goodluck Jonathan is finished and he should just wave goodbye to his 2015 re-election ambitions.

“The APC, with the support of the PDP dissidents, will form the next Federal Government of Nigeria. That is the way to go. PDP as we once knew her has gone forever. The ship has hit the rocks and she has sunk to the bottom of the sea. She is dead and buried and my prayer is that her soul rests in perfect peace”, the former minister concluded.

Peter Obi

Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has called on his fellow politicians to put issues of 2023 aside and focus on how to rescue the country from the current economic crisis.

Obi also blamed President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration for not adequately preparing Nigerians for the impact of COVID-19, stating the monies borrowed by this government were not properly put to use.

“Every other country is discussing the recession and how to pull their people out of poverty.

“So what we should do now is to concentrate on the monetary and fiscal policies to start pulling people out of poverty,” Obi said.

Recession: Nigeria Is Broke, Can’t Afford 2021 Budget – Atiku

Atiku Abubakar

Former Vice-President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has expressed that the Federal Government should reconsider the 2021 budget owing to the recession.

Nigeria officially entered into its worst economic recession in 33 years after the nation recorded a GDP contraction of 3.62 percent in the third quarter of 2020.

He stated that Nigeria is broke and cannot afford the luxurious items in the N13.08 trillion budget proposal.

Atiku in a Twitter thread on Sunday stated that COVID-19 only complicated an existing economic problem.

Atiu went on to express that had President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration listened to advice, the recession could have been avoided.

“We could have avoided this fate by a disciplined and prudent management of our economy.”

“This could have been avoided had this administration taken heed to the patriotic counsel given by myself and other well-meaning Nigerians on cutting the cost of governance, saving for a rainy day, and avoiding profligate borrowing,” Atiku said.

He further said that now is not the time to trade blames but to focus on ways to manage the situation and called on Buhari’s government to “swallow its pride, and accept its limitations, so that they can open their minds to ideas, without caring who the messenger is.”

I Won’t Join Political Enemies To Shoot Down Tinubu – Fayose

Ayo Fayose

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has described Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as one of the greatest builders of men in Yoruba land and Nigeria at large.

The chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said this in Ado Ekiti on Saturday while speaking with journalists as part of the events commemorating his 60th birthday.

Fayose stated that Tinubu has paid his due politically, hence he vowed not to join political enemies of the former Lagos State Governor to shoot him down.

“I am not championing the course of Tinubu, I am not in the position to do that, but there is no denying the fact that Tinubu is a prominent Yoruba leader, whether in APC or in PDP. There is no gainsaying that fact. Fayose is a prominent son of Yoruba nation. Governors Nyesom Wike, Ifeanyi Okowa, Okezie Ikpeazu, are prominent sons of southern Nigeria.

“What I am trying to say is that we can’t hide their identities and goodwill for political reasons. We can’t deny their contributions. Other leaders from the North like Ahmadu Bello Sardauna, they made different impacts not necessarily like Awolowo. So, Tinubu has paid his dues. I have paid my dues, Okowa has paid his dues, Wike has paid his dues, we need to acknowledge them.

Fayose also insisted that he won’t dump PDP despite the crisis rocking the south-west caucus of the party.
