TY Danjuma, Northern Leaders Conspired Against Jonathan’s Re-election – Umeh

Published

Victor UmehNational Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor Umeh, has said leaders in the northern parts of the country conspired and sabotaged the second term ambition of President Goodluck Jonathan.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, Chief Umeh said though there are some good Northern leaders with good intentions for Nigeria, he said some sycophants, who never supported Mr. Jonathan’s reelection bid, are the ones now praising him for conceding defeat.

“Thank God that President Jonathan was not desperate for power, for 48 years the Igbo have been held down, and they never bothered who rules the country. For over 30 years, a section of this country was ruling and believed that power rest with them (and) just few years they were out of power they started complaining and some threatening war if power did not come back to them.

“I wondered why President Jonathan visited Gen. Theophilus Danjuma, who did not support his reelection bid. All the Northern leaders conspired to sabotage Jonathan, Danjuma inclusive.

“I don’t know what he went to his house to look for. He may have deceived the President to believe that he supported him, but I am telling you, all the Northern leaders ganged up against the President”, Umeh said.

Nonetheless, the APGA chieftain urged President Jonathan to concentrate on his job for the remaining days of his administration and ignore the ‘pretenders’ who never supported him and made things very difficult for his administration.

    This guy is blind and deaf to the yearning of the majority of the masses. No one conspired against president Jonathan. His woeful performance coupled with those around him who failed to tell him the true situation of the masses feeling made him to lose the election.

    Danjuma can never receive GCFR,so he is junior to Jonathan.We knew him before,what he meant for the southerners;who he was and who he still is.He is also inferior to the southerners!He can’t be rated number 2500 in Nigeria in all ramifications.It is a pity all Nigerians hate him because he is not a reliable man.He can’t get 2 votes in the presidential election.He should stop seeking the face of GMB,as Buhari is a currupt-free leader.In a decent society,he can not be an ordinary teacher in KG.He is currut and demonic.

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.”
