The South-East Leadership Development Initiative, SELDI, has faulted the recent call by former President Olusegun Obasanjo for the Igbos to contest the presidency in 2019.

The group said the North should be allowed to complete its tenure in 2023.

SELDI’s convener, Mr. Ikechukwu Modebelu, told Vanguard that Igbo would likely become the country’s president after the north had completed its tenure.

He warned that no Igbo man should be deceived into running for the office as there was no vacancy in 2019.

He said: “Our region remains one of the major regions that has not had power. We must get prepared for the position by building our own leaders.

“Our region needs industries and that is why we are talking about the think-home policy.

“We need to also encourage our people to invest at home to create employment for our youths, who feel discriminated against in the country.

“We must assuage the feelings of young Biafrans that Ndigbo are being treated as if they are not Nigerians by dousing their agitation.

“Our elders must have the wisdom of to douse the agitations of our youths by informing them that we are still part of this country between now and 2023 for us to get our people prepared for the position before we can meaningfully campaign for the presidency in 2023.”

Yakubu Dogara confirms receipt of Buhari’s resumption letter

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on Monday confirmed the receipt of President Muhammadu Buhari’s letter, informing the National Assembly of his resumption to duty.

Sources had earlier reported that the President formally transmitted a letter to the National Assembly, informing them that he has officially resumed his duties as President.

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Turaki Adamu Hassan, Dogara admitted receiving the letter from the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly matters, House of Reps, Hon. Suleiman Abdurhaman Kawu Sumaila.

The statement sent to DAILY POST quoted the Speaker as saying he will read the letter to his colleagues during plenary on Tuesday since the communication was meant for them.

Dogara said, “Tomorrow (Tuesday) I will read this to my colleagues on the floor of the House and thereafter make comments from there.

“However, permit me to thank you for working hard to ensure that there is harmonious working relationship between the Executive and the National Assembly.”

“In your own case I can say it was an appointment that we can truly say amounted to putting a round peg in a round hole or a square peg in a square hole.

“So no wonder we have seen to some extent some form of understanding between the National Assembly and the presidency.

“We promise that we will cooperate more than we fight like I said before; we will always fight and that has been the practice in all climes and ours cannot be an exception but we will cooperate more in the interest of our people rather than fight.”

REPORTS: Apostle Suleman buys posh car for actress Daniella Okeke [Photos]

This is the report from Sahara Reporters concerning a posh car Apostle Suleman bought for Daniella Okeke below…

Johnson Suleman, the controversial Nigerian pastor at the center of an adultery scandal gave a $76,000 brand-new Mercedes-Benz 450 GL to Nollywood star Daniella Okeke in 2016, an official Lagos State website shows.

 

Ms. Okeke was previously named by Stephanie Otobo, Apostle Suleman’s estranged lover, as being one of the other women in his life. For her part, the actress in 2016 proudly displayed the Mercedes-Benz SUV GL 450 on her Instagram page in front of a brand-new house where she parked it.

After her name was revealed by Ms. Otobo at a press conference covered extensively by Saharareporters, some Nigerians invaded Ms. Okeke’s Instagram questioning the source of her wealth given that she has not featured in any prominent movies in recent years.

The more inquisitive among them took advantage of a new website for vehicle registration in Lagos State which unveils the ownership of any vehicles by its number due to a bug on the webpage, and discovered that one of Ms. Okeke’s most prized possessions, the posh Mercedes-Benz car, is registered to “Apostle Suleman Johnson.”

This discovery is the second window into the pastor’s private life following the one opened by Ms. Otobo, but he has vigorously denied the amorous relationship she claims to have had with him. Last week, Ms. Otobo was arrested and detained by Apostle Suleman, who procured some federal police officers to rough up the woman. She was behind bars for a few nights.

Ms. Otobo had insisted that Apostle Suleman impregnated her following sex romps in Italy, New York and Nigeria. The pastor denied the allegations and threatened to sue SaharaReporters for reporting the story.

On Thursday, he also threatened Festus Keyamo, whose law office in Lagos is representing Ms. Otobo, demanding an apology and the payment to him of N1bn for blackmail and injury.

In a rebuttal on Friday, the law office denied that Mr. Keyamo, its Head of Chambers, was actively involved in the matter, as he has been in Abuja. It described the pastor’s allegations of a conspiracy against him as pathetic, ludicrous and a nonsensical smokescreen. Among others, the chambers revealed that the pastor paid millions into Ms. Otobo’s account and that it has pictures of him exposing his private parts, evidence of which it said would emerge in court.

It also stated that other victims of the pastor have started to come forward to tell their stories, armed with proof.

Xenophobic Attacks: Why South Africans are targeting Nigerians – Dabiri-Erewa

The Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa has said that the xenophobic attacks on Nigerians in South Africa was driven by hate speech and misinformation by South African politicians.

The President’s Special Assistant, who made this known during a television programme tagged: ‘The Osasu Show’, pointed out that politicians fueled the attack by telling their citizens that foreigners, including Nigerians, were taking their women and jobs.

The former lawmaker, who frowned at the attacks on Nigerians and the looting of their properties, in South Africa, admitted that though there were foreigners who commited crime in the rainbow country, and could be dealt with, it was not by discriminating against Nigerians or any other race or country.

Dabiri-Erewa said, “These attacks happened in the past and this is the seventh time. The last one was in 2015… the king of Zulu made some remarks that were inciting, that led to the last attack.

“This particular one, fine, there are economic issues everywhere in the world. Politicians are campaigning and telling their people, ‘you know what, drive these criminals away, they are taking your jobs, and they are taking your women too.”

She advised South African companies operating in Nigeria to do more to educate their people on the need to stop attacks on Nigerians.

She noted that MTN, DStv and other South African companies could initiate a campaign against xenophobia by educating citizens in the former apartheid enclave.

“Imagine MTN sending text messages to everyone in South Africa, saying Xenophobia is bad, don’t do this and that. They should embark on some corporate social responsibility.

“Those multinationals should get up and do something. DStv should be doing various jingles on why xenophobia is bad, they should take over the awareness campaign,” she stated.

Why Buhari will conveniently win 2019 election – Oshiomhole

The immediate past Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has given reasons why President Muhammadu Buhari will be conveniently re-elected if he seeks for a second term in office come 2019.

He said the Buhari-led administration would have further consolidated on its numerous giant strides by 2019.

He added that by then, comparisons would be made by Nigerians as to the messy situation the country was in 2015 and the changes that were recorded afterwards.

The former Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, President, who spoke to journalists, said against the rhetoric of critics who no longer have access to stolen and cheap money, the truth remained that the country was gradually undergoing an unprecedented change that had put it in the path for greatness and real success.

He said, “If the Peoples Democratic Party were still at the center, I bet you it would have been case closed for Nigeria.

“Boko Haram got up to Benin and had a base in Kogi, who wants to return to that path?

“Who wants to go back to the era when Nigeria Army were said to be running away from battle?

“Who wants to return to the era of abuse of subsidy?

“Again, in all fairness who wants to return to the era of crude oil theft?

“I had asked former President Jonathan as a member of the security committee with governors how crude oil were been stolen in tankers and the Nigerian Navy was not aware. Were the tankers flying?

“Why are we not hearing such stories again, he queried.Who was in government when companies such as Michelin, Dunlop, and Nestl etc started relocating to Ghana.

“Here in Nigeria, a government spent $16bn on power and at the end of spending the last dollar the country degeneration rated from from 4,000 megawatts to 2000 megawatts.

“Who wants to return to an era where in the name of privatization, the PDP government handed over sensitive national assets to brothers, friends and cronies who neither have the competence nor the wherewithal to invest in power distribution which has further compounded our problem today.

“So who wants to return to such time.

“So honestly for me, the facts and choice is clear ahead and of course will be in 2019, “the former Edo governor stated.

While welcoming the President Buhari back from his sick leave, Comrade Oshiomhole applauded the President on the way and manner he handled his vacation, saying it was unprecedented.

He added, “President Buhari is not the first to fall ill, he just happens to be the first in the history of Nigeria to acknowledge that he was ill and hence going on vacation and also to seek medical attention.

“And as required by law, unlike in the past, he duly wrote to the National Assembly and requested that his vice acted as stipulated. What more did Nigerians expect.”
