Published

jona-apcThe All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Organization on Tuesday said President Goodluck Jonathan’s claims of outstanding achievements in the education sector are empty and inconsequential.

The APC campaign was reacting to the president’s declaration that he has transformed the education sector with the establishment of several Federal Universities.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Director of Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign, Mallam Garba Shehu.

The APC campaign said instead of progressing, the Nigerian educational system has operated with huge deficit gaps.

The statement noted that the Jonathan administration is responsible for serious shortcomings in the sector and that the President should take the blame for presiding over the greatest decline ever known in the education sector so far in the country’s history.

The APC blamed the administration of President Jonathan for the present confusion in the sector, which is characterized by long strikes caused by the poor management of the sector by his appointees.

The statement partly read, “A second characteristics of the sector are the ill-equipped and poorly-staffed Universities set up by President Jonathan in 2011 for the purpose of winning votes. The Jonathan Universities are more like glorified Secondary Schools. Third is the continuous mass failure of young Nigerians in international examinations like the West African School Certificate”.

The APC Presidential Campaign spokesperson also said, it has taken note of President Jonathan’s sing-song in his recent campaigns around the country about the number of new Universities and tertiary institutions he has set up in the past six years and how he hopes that these would train our youths to take the country to the moon.

“We dare say that none of the new Universities set-up by President Jonathan meets the standard of good institutions in terms of infrastructure, adequate and well-trained academic staff and proper planning about the future growth and development of these Universities”, Shehu said.

The statement said it amounts to self-deceit to say and believe that Jonathan’s “political universities” can take Nigeria to the moon.

The statement argued that it is as a result of the lack of foresight and policy somersault of the current administration, in the area of education at all levels, the nation has continued to grapple with the problem of low standards and high rate of failure of the nation’s youths in international and national examinations such as WASC and NECO.

The APC Presidential Campaign equally warned President Jonathan to desist from deceiving Nigerians on his alleged sterling performance in the education sector, stressing that such claims are at best hollow and at worst, an affront on the sensibility of well-grounded educationists the world over.

I Received Vision That I Would Be Governor – Oyetola

Gboyega Oyetola

Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola has stated that God revealed to him in a dream that he would be Governor of the State long before he joined the race.

He revealed this while speaking at a service held to commemorate the second anniversary of his administration at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Osun Province 1 Headquarters, Osogbo, on Sunday.

Oyetola said, “I am ordinarily not one who sees visions but on two occasions, I had a strange encounter. Imagine the son of an Imam, receiving a Christian song in a dream. That was my encounter.

“All I could remember on both occasions was the last line of the song which says ‘IleriOluwa ni lati se’. Outside of that dream, I had never heard the song before. When the impression was heavy on my heart, I called one of my friends to ask him about the song, and he told me the song was the Track 2 of Timi Oshikoya’s album.

“He went out and got me the album and immediately I started listening to the track, my consciousness was restored and then I had an understanding of what God was saying to me. That revelation has continued to give me confidence of victory each time I am faced with legal and political battles since becoming governor.”

Anyim Backed Out Of Defection Over Visit to Buhari – Umahi

Dave Umahi

Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi has claimed that a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari stopped former Senate President, Pius Anyim and National Assembly members from the state from defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He made the claim on Sunday while speaking during an APC stakeholders’ meeting at the Bouquet Lodge, Old Government House, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

Umahi claimed that Anyim who served as Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) in the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, and others refused to defect because he outsmarted them all.

“They were planning to ambush me, but it is difficult to catch the air,” he said.

The governor insisted that he consulted all the National Assembly members and the elders from the state about his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), adding that they all agreed to the defection arrangement.

“Let me tell you, I’m not afraid of anybody but I respect everybody. But I have said that if God sent me, this will be the last fight in this state,” he said.

Umahi added: “All these people that came together to fight me, they collect contracts, they collect monthly pay, they collect vehicles. And when they are asked to bring people that worked for us, they will bring their wives, children and relations.

“Now, they are dressing words for us. We are in chapter one, in Chapter two, I will publish all that I have done for the leaders of this state.”
