APC Senator Reveals Why Nigerians Should Not Trust PDP Presidential Candidate, Atiku

Senator Olamilekan Adeola, Lagos West, on Thursday urged Nigerians to give the All Progressives Congress, APC, the needed support to fix the present challenges confronting the country.

Mr Adeola gave the advice in Lagos while speaking at a meeting with traditional rulers in his senatorial district.

He said some of the problems facing the country were inherited by the current APC administration owing to what he called 16years of inept leadership of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.

Mr Adeola said that the PDP nearly ruined Nigeria with incompetent leadership, but the APC was making sincere efforts to reposition the country.

“People talk about the problems in the country but we have to understand that the present challenges of the country were not caused by the APC but inherited from the PDP.

“For 16 years, the PDP delivered nothing but bad governance; in fact, they almost destroyed the country. So, the mess created in 16 years cannot be fixed in three years.

 

“The truth is that the Buhari-led administration has made steady progress in the last three years. And Nigerians can bank on the government to address all the issues to make life better for all,” he said.

Mr Adeola said the promise of the PDP, particularly its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to make things better for Nigerians was an empty one.

He said before Mr Atiku’s promise to turn around the country could be taken seriously, Nigerians should ask him to list his achievements as Vice-president under PDP.

Mr Adeola urged Nigerians to be wary of Atiku, saying his plan to sell some national assets if elected should scare all patriots.

The senator implored traditional rulers to always criticise the present government constructively and give their support for the continued progress of the country.

He said that he believed traditional rulers should be given constitutional roles in nation-building, promising to champion the cause in the 9th Senate, if elected.

Adeola thanked the traditional rulers and the people in the district for their consistent support for him, assuring them that he would always deliver democratic dividends in the area.

The senator said as a representative of the area, he had put in place impacting programmes and interventions.

He said thousands of constituents had benefitted from his empowerment programmes in the area and his various interventions in infrastructure development.

Adeola said he had facilitated jobs for many youths in the area and had supported many in business.

The senator said he was passionate about the progress of Lagos West and urged the constituents to support him in 2019 to do more.

The News Agency of Agency reports that traditional rulers who were at the meeting include Oba Shakirudeen Kuti (Elewu of Ewuland); Oba Kamilu Isiba (Olu of Agege Kingdom); Oba Kabiru Agbabiaka (Osolo of Osolo Kingdom) and Oba Suleiman Suberu (Alajasa of Ajasaland).

Oba Nureni Akinremi (Onijegun of Ijegun); Aholu Samuel Olowolabani of Ajaraland and Oba Lasisi Gbadamosi (Onigando of Igando) were also present.

NAN reports all the traditional rulers endorsed the senator for re-election at the end of the meeting.

US special forces rescue American held hostage in Nigeria

U.S. special forces rescued an American citizen who had been kidnapped by armed men in an operation on Saturday in northern Nigeria that is believed to have killed several of his captors, U.S. officials said.

Forces including Navy SEALs rescued 27-year-old Philip Walton, who had been abducted on Tuesday from his home in neighboring southern Niger, two U.S. officials said on condition of anonymity, adding that no U.S. troops were hurt.

A diplomat source in Niger said Walton is now at the U.S. ambassador’s residence in Niamey.

“Big win for our very elite U.S. Special Forces today,” U.S. President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Fox News that the Trump administration had over the years rescued 55 hostages in 24 countries.

The Pentagon confirmed the operation but did not provide the identity of the hostage.

Walton, who kept camels, sheep, and poultry and grew mangoes near the border with Nigeria, was kidnapped by six men armed with AK-47 assault rifles who arrived on motorcycles at his home in southern Niger’s Massalata village early on Tuesday.

His wife, young daughter, and brother were left behind.

Reuters has reported that the perpetrators appeared to be from the Fulani ethnic group and that they spoke Hausa and some English. They demanded money and searched the family’s home before leaving with Walton.

Niger, like much of West Africa’s Sahel region, faces a deepening security crisis as groups with links to al Qaeda and Islamic State carry out attacks on the army and civilians, despite help from French and U.S. forces.

Four U.S. soldiers were killed in an ambush in Niger in 2017, sparking debate about the United States’ role in the sparsely populated West African desert that is home to some of the world’s poorest countries.

At least six foreign hostages are being held by Islamist insurgents in Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger. Islamists have collected millions of dollars in ransom payments in recent years. The U.S. government has frequently criticized other countries for paying.
