Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Saturday says the Federal Government maintains its confidence in the ruling party because members are not thieves. He says the party is different and that the ultimate desire is to serve the people. He notes that the difference between the present administration and any other government is that those of them in the saddle this time will not steal government money.

He assured all Nigerians that every citizen would share in the benefits that would accrue as the present administration continues to serve. According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr . Laolu Akande, the Vice President spoke while monitoring the ruling All Progressives Congress Ward congresses in Eti Osa Local Government Area of Lagos State.

He said, “We came to find out how things are going, to hear the good news that all our ward congresses are going on very peacefully without any rancour and problems. “We are confident in our party and the reason we are confident is that we are not thieves, we are different and we want to serve the people and the people know we want to serve them.

“With everything we have, we would serve the people. We will make sure we provide everything necessary. “And I pray that everyone of us will see and benefit in the goodness of this land. None of us would be left behind. We would all see the blessings together. “Our party is a great party and it will become greater and greater still.

“What we must achieve in Lagos and other parts of the country is that we must be the best, in everything we do we must be the best. “In terms of progress, whatever we do must be the best, our schools, hospitals and roads must be the best. So we have to put in the resources. And we can do that, very very possible. “As I have been saying all over the country, the difference between us and any other government is that we will not steal the money. We must be confident”.

The Vice President noted that with the decline in the oil prices, the present administration has been earning 60 per cent less than the previous government. This notwithstanding, he said, “God is helping the present government as it gets more hopeful. “With that, he said Nigerians would see the changes they hope for, so that everybody will see the benefits. He then commended the party leaders in the local government for the peaceful conduct of the exercise.

“I have seen that we held these congresses peacefully. I am very happy to be here, to see that our party is making progress and is doing very well. “The Lord God Almighty will help us, He will help your children, we will see the goodness in this land, in our own lifetime. We will enjoy, suffering must end, progress must continue,” he said.

APC Reacts To Atiku’s Visit To US, Says ”A Thief Remains A Thief Anywhere”

Published

on

The US chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has condemned the recent visit of former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar to Washington DC.

Atiku, who is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), visited the US after 13 years, and for the first time since he left office as Nigeria’s vice-president.

But the party in a statement issued by Adeshegun Labinjo, chairman, US chapter of APC said the visit does not absolve Atiku of the purported corruption allegations against him and he should still be held accountable.

The statement read: “the questionable character of the individual does not evaporate because he has stepped on the soil of America

“A thief remains a thief no matter where he or she visits. Obviously, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku has every reason to have kept off the USA given the cloak of corruption he is wearing,” the statement read.

“After a long spell of noticeable absence and factual concerns about Alhaji Abubakur Atiku’s antecedents in the USA arising from his dealings with former Congressman William Jefferson of Louisiana, who was convicted and served a jail term on account of bribery resulting from a telecommunication transaction in Nigeria, Atiku is now here again in the US.

“Congressional records point to the fact that Atiku engaged in money laundering through his wife who was then resident in the USA.

“We see Atiku, who is the 2019 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of Nigeria, as a self-centered corrupt Vice President under President Obasanjo’s regime.

“Certainly, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku‘s entry and presence in the USA is a mockery of President Bush Presidential Proclamation 7750 which affirms the denial of US visa to foreign officials involved with corruption and other supporting legislations by the congress. APC-USA believes that Alhaji Abubakar Atiku should be held accountable for his involvement in money laundering.”

Amaechi Behind Plot To Destroy CJN, This Evil Will Consume Him —– Wike

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, has said that the Minister of Transportation was behind the plot to destroy the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Onoghen.

Addressing thousands of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, supporters during the PDP State Campaign Rally at Eleme, yesterday, Governor Wike said that the Minister of Transportation made the confession at a meeting with an All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain in Abuja.

He said: “At that meeting in Abuja last Monday, he confessed that he was the person behind the illegal crisis facing the CJN.

He bragged that he will destroy the CJN the way he brought former President Goodluck Jonathan down.

“He wants to destroy the nation’s judiciary. This particular evil will finally consume Amaechi.”

The governor wondered why Amaechi would say that PDP was a party of thieves when he was Speaker for eight years under the PDP and eight years as governor under the PDP.

Reacting to Wike’s accusation, an APC Chieftain, Prince Tonye Princewill, said “People have learnt to disregard what Wike says and this gibberish is no exception.
“Many of us can remember when he called a press conference over missing money in Ikeja, Lagos and his ultimatum to the Federal Government. The man is not worthy of a considered response. Good luck to anyone who takes him seriously.”
