Tension in the Villa as Buhari Threatens to Dump 2nd Term Bid on Health Grounds

Published

A high powered tension pervaded the Aso Rock Villa few hours after the decampment of senators and some members of the house of Representative contrary to the façade sold to Nigerians about the prsident wishing the decamp es well in their sojourn to a new party.

Daily Watch Sources in the villa confirmed that the President Mohammadu Buhari was so miffed with the shift by several Senators and members of the house pf representatives and threats of several others that he almost dropped the idea of a 2nd term pursuit by telling Nigerians he is opting out as a result of his health and age.

Daily Watch investigations confirmed that the president and his wife had both agreed to toe that line of honor having realized the dismal decline in his popularity base and the possibility of a defeat staring him in the face if he goes ahead with the gamble of 2019.

According to Daily Watch Sources, the President was totally disorganized and pissed with the strange decampment in spite of the overwhelming assurances given by the APC top hierarchy that the situation was under control and the fervent assurance of his Political Caucus and Cabal in the seat of Power here in Abuja.

Daily Watch confirmed that it took the suave intelligence and unrivaled Pressure of members of the Cabal,Babagana Kingibe (Head of the Buhari Political Caucus) and several others in the seat of Power to stop the President from towing the line of honor like Mandala by opting out of the 2019 elections following the tsunami that saw Senators and Res members vacating the APC for the PDP.

The President was said to have mellowed down after several hours of assurances,plea and convincing by his close associates that the move by the Reps members and senators does not affect his Political base as the masses were still solidly behind him and tht they too would prove it in the days ahead with tenable evidences among the populace of Nigeria.

Daily Watch findings confirmed that the plot by Buhari to drop his 2nd term bid received overwhelming support of the wife who who said to have totally supported the idea but was shocked on the recanting of her husband following unrivaled and uncommon pressure mounted on the President by the Cabal and other very close associates who were able to convince him against that line of action by creating a picture of Political invisibility which gave the almost demoralized President some form of invigoration again.

Daily Watch Attempts to reach out to the President Spokes men on the reported threat by the President to jettison his 2nd bid on the grounds of health and age after the decampment of several APC stalwarts was not possible as all text messages to their numbers were not responded to

After Meeting NGF Chairman, Akpabio Apologies To state Governors Over N30bn Claim

Published

on

The President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has finally apologised to the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) under the leadership of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State over his comment on the N30bn allowance allegedly given to them to cushion the effect of inflation in food prices.

This was coming after the Senate President held a meeting with the NGF Chairman and some of his counterparts in Abuja yesterday.

Akpabio had, at a plenary sitting last Tuesday, said an “unverified report” indicated that state governors received N30bn each from the Federation Account to cushion the effect of inflation and the high cost of food prices.

The statement has generated controversies in the public space, with some commentators asking governors to come clean about the money they did not collect.

However, on Monday, Akpabio in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Eseme Eyiboh, retracted the statement, saying the SP held the governors in high esteem.

The statement reads below:

“During the session, the President of the Senate commented on the payment of an unverified cumulative sum of about N30bn to the sub-national governments by the Federal Government for various interventions to ameliorate the food situation of our citizens at the sub-national governments.

“The unfortunate conjectures to take away the kernel in the material facts of FAAC payment are rather regretted. In considering the well-intended motive of urging state governments to collaborate with the Federal government of President Bola Tinubu to facilitate strategic interventions to mitigate the prevailing economic situation in the country remains the underpinning motivation in the comment.

“The President of the Senate is not oblivious to the fact that state governments are functional partners in all the efforts of the current administration of President Bola Tinubu and are also valuable stakeholders’ in the various legislative engagements of the legislature in creating the nexus between the legislature and the people.”

Eyiboh added that Akpabio has always demonstrated commitment to team building and shall not do less in the circumstance.

He, therefore, urged the sub-national governments not to be distracted by any misunderstanding of the context and true meaning of the statement.

He added, “The President of the Senate recognises and appreciates the current efforts of the governors at ameliorating the adverse effects of the current inclement socio-economic environment and therefore invites more hands on the plow to complement the renewed hope agenda.”

No Community Should Be Asked To Pay For Transformers, Cables, Poles -Minister Warns Discos

Published

“It is the responsibility of the distribution companies to provide transformers, cables and poles to communities so that power supply can improve.

“A situation where communities buy transformers, cables and poles must stop. I know that you have these centers but how effective are they to ensure that customer complaints are attended to?

“As a minister, I don’t want to hear news of communities being asked to purchase electric transformers, cables and poles. If the consumers are paying for the electricity, then it is the responsibility of the distribution companies to provide these items.

“There must be improvement in power supply. That is what the government planned to do. People should not pay for darkness. When people have a 24-hour power supply, they can pay double for electricity because you have saved them the money to power generators.

“We don’t want to hear the news of communities buying transformers, cables and poles for themselves again. The federal government frowns at it. You see what we have done in Kaduna. Service to our people is paramount. It is the responsibility that Mr. President has placed on us. You are not number one, two or three, you are struggling to be number four on the rating.” -Adebayo Adelabu, Power Minister At Meeting With IEDC Mgt
