Tinubu’s Camp Speaks On Atiku’s Crisis With Wike

 

Festus Keyamo (SAN) the Minister of Labour and Employment and Chief Spokesperson of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign in an interview with DAILY INDEPENDENT said aside Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and his allies, other governors in the PDP are not on the side of Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the PDP.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to him, he strongly believes that the aggrieved PDP stakeholders will support the presidential bid of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC flagbearer as none of the other presidential candidates can match him in terms of sagacity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He said “We don’t need to name names, but it is obvious to all discerning minds that not all the Governors in the PDP are with Atiku Abubakar, but even those outside the G-5”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“And the next port of call naturally should be support for the APC because not a single candidate comes close to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in terms of sagacity”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“However, we are not relying on the weaknesses of the PDP in planning for our elections; we are depending on our own strength so that even if there is a last-minute rapprochement in the PDP, we shall still be ahead of them”.

Top officials of the ministry had attributed the delay in salary payment to the failure of some agencies to submit their salary schedule on time.

FHC Verdict: Adekoya hails judiciary, says 'no victor, no vanquished'

FHC Verdict: Adekoya hails judiciary, says ‘no victor, no vanquished’

 

 

 

 

The Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, on Wednesday, 30th November, 2022, struck out two suits challenging the May 22nd, 2022 primary election which produced Rt. Hon. Abdel-Majid Adesegun Adekoya (ATTACKER) as the House of Representatives candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for Ijebu-North/Ijebu-East/ Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency in the February 2023 election.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reacting to the judgement, the Deputy Minority Whip of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Abdel-Majid Adesegun Adekoya (ATTACKER) commended the judiciary for taking into consideration what is right and serving justice, appropriately.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I was truly overwhelmed by the judgement. This is what our law institutions should do -always standing by what is right at all times to avoid the miscarriage of justice. The judiciary has once again justified the confidence we reposed in them”, Adekoya said.

 

 

 

 

Speaking further, Adekoya appealed to the duo of Hon. Tele Ogunjobi, Mr. Kenny Bello and other aggrieved members of the party to sheath their swords, noting that it is a “no victor, no vanquished” situation. He maintained that as members of the same party, there is bound to be disagreement but it does not make them enemies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I shall be visiting my brothers – Hon. Tele Ogunjobi and Mr. Kenny Bello very soon to iron things out and map out strategies to ensure our party emerges victorious in 2023. There is no champion for ever. Someday, I’ll vacate this seat and I see them both as perfect successors. As it is usually said that success without a successor is a successful failure. By that time, I shall be willing to offer my utmost support to whoever gets the mandate between them” ATTACKER concluded.

Adeleke Reverses Self On Sack Of Civil Servants, Monarchs

Published

on

Adeleke said yesterday his administration has not sacked any worker and dethroned three monarchs. Adeleke spoke against the earlier announced Executive Order 3, 4 and 5, which stated nullification of employment, appointment made by former Governor Adegboyega Oyetola from July 17, 2022 till his inauguration and vacation of the throne of three monarchs appointed by past administration. The order states: “All employments in the service of Osun State Government made in any capacity into any capacity in all the ministries, departments, agencies, commissions, boards and parastatals after July 17, 2022 are hereby nullified. “All appointments in the service of Osun State Government made in any capacity into any capacity in the ministries, departments, agencies, commissions, boards and parastatals after July 17, 2022 are hereby reversed. “All appointments of traditional rulers made by Osun State Government after July 17, 2022 are hereby ordered to be reviewed to ensure there was strict compliance with due process of chieftaincy declarations and native law, custom and tradition relating to such chieftaincies. In the case of Ikirun, Iree and Igbajo, to avoid further breakdown of law and order, the appointments of Akinrun of Ikinrun, Aree of Ire and Owa of Igbajo are hereby put on hold pending review. Subsequently, the palaces of Akinrun of Ikirun, Aree of Iree and Owa of Igbajo should remain unoccupied, while security agencies are hereby ordered to take charge.” However, the governor through his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, speaking yesterday on a private radio station, Rave FM, in Osogbo, during a talk show programme, ‘Frank Talk’, said Adeleke had not sacked any worker. He said the appointment and employment made by the Oyetola administration would be reviewed to ensure legality and due process, stressing that nobody had been sacked, the executive order was misquoted. All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has described the setting up of review panels by Governor Adeleke as an afterthought designed to arrive at predetermined outcomes. The party urged the governor to settle down to study the handover notes, so as to prevent the blunders he was committing. In a statement signed by its Director of Operations, Sunday Akere, APC said: “We told you from day one that these people have nothing to offer. We can all see from their first action that they are even confused. “They had told us long time ago that they were coming to sack. They came and announced it. Why set up a panel after taking a decision? What they are doing can be likened to doing ablution after observing prayers. Who does that?” Governor Adeleke has ordered the dissolution of non-statutory boards.
