Buhari Should Have Been Executed For Overthrowing Shagari - Atiku’s Spokesman, Ibe Paul Replies Festus Keyamo





Media Adviser to PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has fired back at Barrister Festus Keyamo, spokesman of the Buhari Campaign Organisation, for saying Atiku should have been in jail over corruption charges.

Recall that on Wednesday December 26th, Keyamo in a lengthy statement, said ''if the system of government in Nigeria was working well, Atiku should have been in prison before Buhari came into power in 2015''.

Responding to Keyamo’s statement, Ibe in a tweet posted on his twitter handle, said if Nigeria had an effective system, President Buhari should have been killed long ago for overthrowing the democratically elected government of President Shehu Shagari in 1983.
”Festus Keyamo should be careful what he brings on himself and APC campaign. If Nigeria had a working system, Muhammadu Buhari should have been executed for overthrowing a democratically elected government in 1983.” his tweet read

Here Is Lionel Messi's Response To Cristiano Ronaldo's Challenge Of Joining Him In Italy





Barcelona and Argentine superstar, Lionel Messi, 31, has responded to his arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo's challenge.

Ronaldo, 33, who made a £100m move from Real Madrid to Italy's Juventus last summer, ending their rivalry in Spain, said in a previous interview: 'I played in England, Spain, Italy, Portugal, in the national team, while he is still in Spain. Maybe he (Lionel Messi) needs me more.

'For me, life is a challenge, I like it and I like to make people happy. I would like him to come to Italy one day. Like me, accept the challenge.'

Now Lionel Messi has responded to Ronaldo's suggestion saying he won't be joining him in Italy.

'Accepting Ronaldo's challenge to join Italian football? I don't need any change,' the Argentine told Marca.

'I'm at the best team in the world. My challenges are renewed year after year.

'I do not need to change teams or leagues to set new goals. I am at home and I do not need to change.

2019: Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Endorse Buhari’s Re-Election Bid





Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the Miyetti  Allah Cattle  Breeders Association of Nigeria,  has declared its support for the re-election of  President Muhammadu Buhari.

The endorsement which came during the Association’s  5th General Meeting held in Abuja on Thursday had in attendance over 2000 of its members from different parts of the country.

National President, MACBAN, Alhaji Muhammadu Kirowa, said the association’s decision to support the President was because ” no administration had looked into our plight the way  President Buhari has done since the inception of the association.”

Kirowa stated that the President had made significant efforts towards reviving grazing reserves across the country, thereby impacting directly the lives of MACBAN members.

He said, “We appreciate government’s programmes aimed at transforming the social lives of Nigerians through empowerments, agricultural development particularly the livestock sub-sector where pilot programmes of developing water and pasture in long-neglected grazing reserves have commenced.”

Speaking earlier, the  National Secretary, MACBAN, Alhaji Baba Ngelzarma, who pledged the association’s continuous loyalty and support for the President, appealed to members of the association to be law-abiding, avoid friction and utterances that were capable of causing chaos in the country.

He also appealed to the media to avoid labelling herdsmen as ‘killers and unwanted citizens.’

Ngelzarma noted, “MACBAN frowns on the sensational and negative stereotyping of herders, who are doing legitimate economic activity that contributes to the gross domestic product of the country and are ensuring food security.

“We represent over 20 million members across the country, here in attendance we have over 2000 people who have come from all corners of the country; We  have representatives from each local governments, and you heard their views; They have declared their interest in President Muhammadu Buhari.”

“This is the decision of the majority, we as leaders, don’t have any option than to follow,” he added.

Boko Haram Sacks Military Bases Carts Away Guntrucks, Ammunition, Rocket Launchers





Boko Haram sacked two military bases in northeast Nigeria overnight as the jihadist fighters battle for control of a strategic town on Lake Chad, military sources said Thursday.

Jihadists from the IS-supported Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) overran a naval base and a multinational joint task force (MNJTF) post in the fishing town of Baga after a fierce battle, the sources told AFP.

Boko Haram has repeatedly struck military outposts in the region in recent months. Fighters in several vehicles stormed Baga and engaged troops in intense fighting at the MNJTF base which hosts units from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon.

The insurgents also sacked a naval base in Mile 3 which lies five kilometres from Baga, a military source who asked not to be identified told AFP.

“The troops were overpowered and forced to withdraw,” the source, adding that “the terrorists carted away guntrucks, ammunition and multiple rocket launchers from the base.”

Troops from the two bases withdrew to another naval base at Fish Dam on the shores of Lake Chad, the military source said. That base was well secured, and resisted several attempts by Boko Haram fighters to overrun it, the source added. The jihadists then retreated and the troops decided not to pursue them to avoid running into an ambush, a strategy Boko Haram often employs against the military, the officer said.

Nigerian army spokesman Sani Usman confirmed the attack in a statement which said the assault began at about 7:00 pm local time (1800 GMT). “The troops along with their Nigerian Navy counterparts put up a very determined fight” all night, he said, adding that one navy personnel was killed. Troop reinforcements were in pursuit of the Boko Haram fighters, he said. Residents of the regional capital Maiduguri reported seeing six fighter jets flying towards Baga on Thursday.

In January 2015, Boko Haram overran the MNJTF base and took control of Baga after killing hundreds of residents and forcing thousands to flee to Maiduguri. 

The town was later retaken, but jihadists continue to attack the military and civilians in the area, which is an ISWAP stronghold. Its fighters occupy camps on many islands in Lake Chad. Boko Haram’s nine-year insurgency has killed 27,000 people and displaced two million others, sparking a dire humanitarian crisis in the region. The fighting has also spilled into Nigeria’s northern neighbours Chad, Niger and Cameroon.

If The System Were To Be Working, Atiku Would Be In Jail By Now Instead Of Contesting For Presidency - Festus Keyamo





Spokesperson of the Buhari Campaign Organization, Festus Keyamo, has said that former Vice President, now PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, would have been in jail at the moment and not contesting for presidency, if the ''country's system were to be working''.

Keyamo said this in a statement released on Wednesday. Read below.

    IF THE SYSTEM WERE TO BE WORKING BEFORE PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI TOOK OVER IN 2015, ALHAJI ATIKU ABUBAKAR WOULD BE IN JAIL BY NOW INSTEAD OF CONTESTING FOR THE PRESIDENCY.

    Our attention has been drawn to a statement credited to the Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar disputing the assertion by President Muhammadu Buhari that the system in Nigeria allows corruption to thrive because the system is slow in tackling corruption. Alhaji Atiku Abubakar further blamed President Muhammadu Buhari for perceived failure in addressing some instances of ‘corrupt practices’ under his watch.

    Let us remind Alhaji Atiku Abubakar that he is one of the greatest beneficiaries of the failed system in tackling corruption that was in place before President Muhammadu Buhari took over in 2015. We know he is aware of this, hence his latest diatribe against President Muhammadu Buhari amounts to nothing but disgusting grandstanding and an attempt to mock the system.

    If the system in Nigeria was indeed working, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar would not have acquired substantial shares in INTELS in clear conflict of his duties as a Customs Officer whilst in office. Those shares would have belonged to the Nigerian people by now.

    If the system in Nigeria was indeed working, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar would not have run a monopolistic company called INTELS all these years, ripping off the Nigerian people and the Nigerian State before Muhammadu Buhari came and broke that monopoly.

    If the system was working, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar would have been prosecuted and jailed for various acts of corruption and abuse of office after he left office as Vice President, some of which are:

    (a) For himself and his boss, President Olusegun Obasanjo, granting themselves licenses to build universities as President and Vice President whilst in office in clear breach of the Code of Conduct for Public Officers. Those Universities would have been probed, seized and transferred to the Nigeria State and the Nigerian people by now.

    (b) Laundering slush funds to the United States of America using phony companies, part of which was used to fund his present American University in Adamawa State through which he is also extorting Nigerians through exorbitant fees. It is public knowledge that this indictment is contained in a US Congressional Report that has led to the prosecution and conviction of his accomplices in the US, which are William Jefferson and Siemens. They were convicted under a system that works, whilst he has been walking free in Nigeria and even aspiring to the highest office in the land. It is also public knowledge that his ban from entering the United States was as a result of these indictments.

    (c) His indictment and recommendation for prosecution by the Report of the EFCC over the PTDF scandal whilst he was Vice President.

    We have also read with keen interest the case filed against Alhaji Atiku Abubakar by some public spirited Nigerians alleging that he never paid his Personal Income Taxes as at when due, yet he wants to ‘get Nigeria working again’. In this regard, we are also challenging Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to publicly display his Personal Income Tax receipts for the 3 years preceding 2018 to show that he did not just run to FIRS in 2018 to pay his backlog of Personal Income Taxes.

    For the information of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, President Muhammadu Buhari’s gallant efforts in tackling corruption headlong has led to the conviction of the President’s own party men and ex Governors who served under PDP and for acts they committed whilst in PDP. 703 persons and institutions have been convicted by the EFCC under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari since 2015. The biggest recoveries of stolen public funds in the history of Nigeria is being carried out by President Muhammadu Buhari. These recoveries were made from principally his party men who now wish to lead Nigeria with him. Some of these recoveries/seizures/forfeitures (interim and final) are:

    (a) 407 Mansions since 2015.
    (b) N794 Billion, over $261 Million Dollars, 1.1 Million Pounds Sterling, 8.1 Million Euros,
    (c) 259 Automobiles.
    (d) A fully functional hospital, St. Solomon Health Care Centre at 24, Adeniyi Jones Street, Ikeja Lagos e.t.c.

    There are so many other instances too numerous to mention. These are a world apart from the few instances of the reluctant fight against corruption that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar claimed happened under his watch as Vice President. During his time, there was a competition for corruption between himself, his boss and public officers.

    We also urge the PDP to stop making wild, unsubstantiated allegations of corruption without a modicum of proof. We have no time to respond to any allegation by the PDP without the backing of some kind of document or proof. When we see some scintilla of proof, we shall respond appropriately. And that is how we have treated the recent allegation of acquisition of shares in Etisalat and Keystone Bank by some supposed ‘family members’ of the President. No name was mentioned and no document was shown.

    Alhaji Atiku Abubakar latest adventure in trying to stand shoulder-to-shoulder in matters of integrity with President Muhammadu Buhari is a political suicide mission from which we thought his handlers would have tried to steer him away. But alas! They have decided to test the waters. Locally and internationally President Muhammadu Buhari stands several miles away from Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in matters of integrity. When the President used all his life in public office building a reputation and a name, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar used all his life in public office to build mansions and acquire personal wealth. Now Judgment Day has come when the credential needed by the Nigerian people for the highest office are not the buildings and wealth but the simple quality of integrity.

    Alhaji Atiku Abubakar cannot eat his cake and have it.

    Thank you.

    FESTUS KEYAMO, SAN, FCIArb (UK)
    Director of Strategic Communications (Official Spokesperson)
    President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organization.
