North Group Demands Medical Evidence To Stop Tinubu

Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has called on Nigerians to come out with convincing evidence that national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, is not fit to contest the Presidency in 2023 on health ground.

The Arewa leaders said without such evidence, Tinubu should be allowed to vie for the office.

Spokesman of ACF, Emmanuel Yawe, stated this, yesterday, against the backdrop of the APC stalwart’s declaration that he would run for the country’s top job.

According to the group, Nigeria must be saved the agony of having any President with health challenge to run the country.

“If people have issues or evidence about his (Tinubu) health, let them come out and speak. Let them provide evidence that he is not strong enough to contest for the Presidency or hold the office.

“The people, who have the evidence that Tinubu is not strong enough for the office of Presidency, should save us the agony of having a sick President in office. They should speak out,” ACF stated.

It cited the late President Umaru Yar’Adua, who was sick and died in office, leaving the country in constitutional crisis.

Ernest Shonekan: The end of a democracy traitor, Omoyele Sowore

Chief Ernest Shonekan: The

When I learned of the death of Chief Ernest Shonekan today at the age of 85. I could not hold my anger at the reporting (including at Sahara Reporters) that claimed he was a “Nigerian leader.”

Truth is that Chief Shonekan wasn’t a leader, he was a traitor who betrayed Chief Moshood Kashimawo Abiola and a betrayer of Nigeria’s quest for genuine democracy before and during the June 12 1993 era.

Also, Chief Shonekan wasn’t an “Interim Leader” as reported in many news outlets, the illegal contraption he headed known as the “Interim National Government” which was put together by an equally evil traitor, General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida was appropriately nullified by a Lagos High Court also in 1993 after he occupied the office of “President” only for 84 days.

Nigerians should courageously address the sins of these bunch of wicked people when they are alive and when they die. The people of Chile recently treated the death of Lucía Hiriart, the widow of the Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet with scorn even though she died at the age of 99.

2023: More Pressure On Tinubu, Atiku As Age Leads Criteria For Presidency

Two of the leading aspirants in the 2023 presidential election, Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar will be in their 70s by 2023.

Mr Tinubu will be 71 years old in 2023, while Atiku Abubakar will be 77 at the same time. The recent comment by President Muhammadu Buhari that at his age, he is struggling with the rigour of the office, has brought the question of age into the front burner of the national discourse on the 2023 race.

The 79-year-old President had said, “And about my age, yes, I see my colleagues, they are now resting and I assure you that I’m looking forward to the next 17 months when I too would have to be less busy.

“The age is telling on me. Working now for 6, 7, 8 hours a day in the office is no joke.”

In previous elections, rotation and religion were two predominant factors during elections. But the experience of Nigerians with President Buhari, who has had a series of visits to the hospital and long delays in government response which earned him the nickname “Baba go slow” have made age a focal point.

Despite the issue of rotation, Atiku, a northerner is expected to clinch the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, while Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State already has political machinery mobilizing for him across the country. If these two are given the ticket, one of them would be replacing Mr Buhari who would be in his 80s by the time he leaves office.

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani Kayode, an ally of governor Yahaya Bello, last Friday raised the issue of age during an interview on Channels TV.

“Of course, you have some that are younger than one another, you have some that are more dynamic than others. You have some that are more focused than others, you have some that are stronger and more decisive—I am a friend and believer of Yahaya Bello—there are others there,” the controversial politician had said,” he said.

This view on age is not only shared by Mr Fani-Kayode. Osita Okechukwu, a staunch supporter of President Buhari had in December appealed to Tinubu to back a “young Southeastern for 2023”, which will unite the south and the entire country.

The 69th birthday of Mr Tinubu became controversial in 2021, as many Nigerian expressed doubt on his real age. Wikipedia had to remove the editing option on Tinubu’s page.

Not just age that has become important, pandering to youths has become more important. As it stands, most of the candidates are above 50 years, hence, there has been a concerted effort to appeal to youths, particularly on social media.

The position of the present government on Twitter and cryptocurrency, in which the government placed different forms of restrictions, has spurred the desire to have a young President or someone who understands these issues.

In this review, Daily Post looks at the aspirants in the 2023 presidential race

Atiku Abubakar (75)

The former vice president will be riding on his market economy stance.

Perhaps to deflate from the issue of age, Mr Atiku has been very active on Twitter, commenting on issues that appeal to the youths. And sometimes, jump on trending lingos and slangs despite being 75 years old. In the last election, he had Peter Obi as running mate.

Mr Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, was really popular among youths because of his pro-market stance.

Bola Tinubu (69 years)

At 69 years old, coupled with the recent hospitalization and the EndSARS resentment, Mr Tinubu appears to be unpopular on social media, however, his political structure remains strong.

The recruitment of Abdulmumin Jibrin, a former member of the House of Representatives from Kano seems to be paying off in terms of mobilization.

But recently, there appears to have been division within the APC supporters on Twitter. The group, popularly known as BMC or E-BMC are divided between those supporting Tinubu and those supporting Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President.

Bukola Saraki (59 years)

No politician within the 2023 race has pandered to youths like the former Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

Mr Saraki, a former governor of Kwara State remains popular among the youths, mostly for his record as Senate President where he opposed Buhari’s administration.

His ability to relate with social media influencers have played well. In 2021, his meeting with Chinonso Egemba, popularly known as Dr Aproko, a popular influencer with over a 1.2million followers, trended for a whole day.

Yemi Osinbajo (64)

The Vice President is another name on the 2023 possible running list. While he is just 5years younger than Mr Tinubu, the law professor is popular with young people on social media.

While his continued loyalty to President Buhari could have earned him some backlash, he is still popular.

Yahaya Bello (46)

The governor of Kogi State is currently one of the youngest persons in the possible list of aspirants.

Mr Bello’s proxies, like Fani Kayode, have predicated Bello’s interest in youthfulness. It is unknown if youthfulness will make up for the allegations of lack of performance as governor of Kogi State.

We must blend youthfulness and competence….

Bashir Madandola, Leader of Kwara South Youth Stakeholders’ Forum, said it is not enough for the next president to be a youth, but must have the required track record and experience.

“Nigerian youths have the requisite experience and competence to rule this country. After 8years of Buhari’s rudderless leadership, we need a young and dynamic leadership. Take, for instance, former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has both the youthfulness, competency and exposure.

“For us, this blend is important as we plan for 2023,” he stated.

Nigerian Actor Advised Men: Before giving money to Girls make sure you give to your mum first – says Actor Alexx Ekubo to Men

A Nollywood actor, Alexx Ekubo, has advised his male fans to give money to their mothers before giving same to their Female Lovers.

Ekubo made this call in the shared video of himself and his mum as an evidence that her Mother was “eating” his money.

In the video caption, he advised fans to take care of their parents as the latter “won’t be around forever.”

He wrote, “Dear everyone, always take care of your parents. Sadly, they won’t be around forever.

And to those men that give babes money, that’s awesome. Just remember that before you give Obianuju, give mumsy, because ‘Thank you my son’ is greater than ‘Awwww baby’.

Referring to the video, the actor said, “Video evidence of my mum agreeing that she is ‘eating’ my money.”

I Will Establish Evidence Of Massive Cover-up, Falana slams Lagos police commissioner over Dowen College saga

Human rights lawyer Femi Falana has warned Lagos police commissioner Hakeem Odumosu to steer clear of making “outlandish” claims over the death of Sylvester Oromoni Jnr.

Sylvester was the 12-year-old student of Dowen College who died after, according to his parents, he was brutalised and poisoned by colleges who wanted to force him into a cult.

An autopsy report backed the parents’ claim that their son was murdered, but another report conducted in Lagos apparently dismisses the allegation.

Odumosu, on the premise of the Lagos autopsy, recently declared that Sylvester died of natural causes and urged those who disagree with that conclusion to seek redress in court.

But Falani warned the police chief against making such claims as he isn’t a medical doctor.

“There is law in Lagos State. In the event of a violent or suspicious death, only the state’s coroner can determine the cause of death,” the lawyer told Channel TV’s ‘Sunrise Daily’ on Monday.

“Is Odumosu a doctor? This matter is before the coroner. Why is he preempting the coroner?

“We are going to establish evidence of a massive cover-up,” he vowed.

coroner’s inquest will begin on January 15.

Another Child Dies in Boarding House Due to Alleged Negligence

St Michael’s Boys College, Ozubulu, Anambra State, has lost a boarding student, Chimdalu Onyekwuluje.

His death comes over a month after the death of Sylvester Oromoni, also a boarding student of Dowen College, Lagos.

Onyekwuluje, an 11-year-old JSS 2 student at the school, was reported to have died as a result of the school’s incompetence in not calling his parents to pick him up when he became ill.

He has since been buried at Uzoakwa, Ihiala, Anambra State, in his family compound.

Even when the student’s health had completely deteriorated, the management insisted he stay behind to finish his exams before being released, according to his parents, Prince Cornelius and Ogochukwu Onyekwuluje, who spoke to journalists during his son’s burial, said the decision was the reason for his death.
He died on December 17, 2021, nine days after his parents picked him up after a cousin of the dead borrowed a phone to warn them to the boy’s illness.

Onyekwuluje said: “My son, Bright Chidalu Onyekwuluje died out of negligence on the part of the school. He was sick, and they refused to tell us. It was my son’s cousin that borrowed a phone to call his mother to tell us to come and pick Bright that he was dying.

“He told us he has been the one backing him from the school hostel to the classroom every day, to sit for exams.

“Even after the call, I reached the guardian of my son, but he lied to me that the boy was okay and that it was nothing serious. I insisted on coming from Port Harcourt, Rivers State where I live to pick him, and they insisted it was nothing serious.

“When I insisted I must see him, I was surprised the boy looked so bad that he was already dying. I asked the guardian if this was the boy he said was alright, but he did not answer. Now I have lost my only son,” he cried.

Meanwhile, the principal of the school, Rev Fr Romanus Ike Muoma has denied that the school management delayed in releasing the student to his parents.

Fr Muoma said: “The boy was seen here in school moving about with other students, days before his father came. What we have here (college) is not an auxiliary nurse, but a qualified nurse from Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital Nnewi, and we pay heavily for his services.

“The boy was diagnosed with malaria, and was immediately put on treatment, and afterwards, he was okay. When it was found that the boy was ill again, it was the guardian that called the parents to come and take him.”

When told that the deceased’s cousin who had called the parent to alert them of the illness was punished by the school for doing so, Father Muoma said the boy was only made to kneel down for some minutes, saying it was against the rule for students to call parents, as calls are only made from a central point by the management.
The Onyekwuluje family has however indicated its interest to pursue justice for their son. Mr Ben Onyekwuluje, elder brother of the deceased’s father said a petition has been sent to the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, and the family will stop at nothing until justice is served.

Why I always act as Odunlade Adekola’s mother in movies – Madam Saje

Fausat Balogun, popularly known as Madam Saje, has revealed why she always acts in Yoruba films as the mother of the top actor Odunlade Adekola.

In an interview with City People, Madam Saje said that although they are actors and must portray their positions in such a way as to make it authentic, she enjoys some sort of understanding and relation with Odunlade.

“I act his mother, often in movies, and that is because, we both understand each other a lot, without even talking, I know his next actions in movies. He is my son, and we understand each other a lot. So with him as my son in movies, be rest assured that the interpretation will be perfectly done,” she said.

On acting with her husband, she said:

“My husband has never acted my husband in any movie at all, he often takes up the role of an elderly man. At times, if I don’t interprete my roles well, he scolds me and frowns at that. He is still my teacher,” she said.
