Published

on

jonathan_2015The Presidency on Friday declared that no individual or cabal was capable of stopping President Goodluck Jonathan if he decides to seek a second term in office come 2015.

This was the position of the Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Mr. Ahmed Gulak, who spoke in an exclusive interview with SUNDAY PUNCH on behalf of the Presidency.

Gulak said only voters could decide Jonathan’s fate, adding that from the political consultations carried out so far, it was glaring that Nigerians had seen that there was no alternative to the president in 2015.

The presidential aide said Nigerians, at home and in the Diaspora, were in harmony that Nigeria was safer in Jonathan’s hands.

He said, “I have said it before and severally that it is Mr. President’s constitutional right to offer himself for second term in office. It is Nigerians that will either vote for him or not, not a cabal, not a few individuals, not those who believe Presidency is their birthright.

“The birthright of every Nigerian to stand election is there. You can see for yourself, it is overwhelming, Nigerians are calling on the man to come out and they will vote for him.

“We are just waiting for him to answer the clarion call. It is a call for peace; it is a call for unity, a call for continuous development. It is just a matter of time.

“Nigerians have seen there is no alternative to President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015. We have gone round the country; even Nigerians in the Diaspora are unanimous on the fact that Nigeria is safer in President Jonathan’s hands”.

Gulak also confirmed that the president was reaching out to all those that matter, including his estranged political benefactor, ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.

He however did not go further. “The President is reaching out to everybody, this I assure you”, was all he said.

2023 Presidency: Bode George Cautions Buhari About Tinubu

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.”
