Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has said that a Tinubu presidency in 2023 would accelerate national growth and development.

Mr Ganduje said this on Wednesday while accepting an appointment as the patron of the APC National Integrity Movement (ANIM) at the Government House, Kano.

“Tinubu’s track records and pedigree shows that he can propel Nigeria to greatness if elected as president.

“Asiwaju is a man of integrity and a good product. He has contributed greatly to the growth and development of our democracy.

“He is a consummate democrat and the leader of progressives who fought to bring the democratic rule that Nigerians are enjoying today,” Mr Ganduje said.

He urged ANIM to consolidate their support and advocacy for Mr Tinubu after the presidential election in 2023.

Mr Ganduje expressed appreciation for the recognition by the group and promised to work hard for the election of Mr Tinubu as president.

Bayelsa govt reacts to Diri, Dickson reported ‘division’

Gov. Douye Diri of Bayelsa has dismissed allegations that his deputy, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, is disloyal.

The governor, in a statement issued by his aide, Dr Kola Oredipe, also denied any rift with his predecessor, Sen. Seriake Dickson.

Diri reaffirmed that he has implicit confidence in Ewhrudjakpo, describing him as a worthy partner in the governance of the state.

A group in the Bayelsa Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Bayelsa Progressive Vanguard (BPV), had on Sunday decried the activities of the deputy governor.

The group had alleged that Ewhrudjakpo was working against the interest of the governor.

In a statement signed by its leader, Erepadei Ebiowei, the BPV said it had observed with dismay that most of the actions of Ewhrujakpor were unbecoming of a deputy governor.

The group alleged that the deputy governor was running a parallel administration within the government despite the latitude he enjoyed from the governor.

It also accused Ewhrujakpor of hobnobbing and meeting with aggrieved members within the ruling party and opposition party candidates of the Social Democratic Party (SDP).

The group called on the leadership of the PDP in the state and at the national level to probe the deputy governor.

According to the BPV, if unchecked, the deputy governor will constitute the greatest threat to the fortunes of the party in the 2023 elections.

Pat Utomi dares Tinubu to take medical test, make results public

Pat Utomi and Bola Tinubu

Pat Utomi, a former APC chieftain and political economist, has challenged “ailing” presidential candidate Bola Tinubu to undergo a medical test and publicise the result to convince Nigerians he is capable of being the next president.

“Tinubu is not fit. Physically, you can see he is ailing. You can see it. Let’s be true to ourselves. Let him go through a medical that will be made public in Nigeria,” said Mr Utomi on a Channels TV programme Monday evening. “American presidents go through medicals that are made public. Let him go through a medical with Nigerian doctors.”

The former Lagos governor, in May, had deflected words against his failing health, insisting that “governance is not about wrestling,” that “it’s about thinking” and “about the brain.”

Mr Tinubu, according to the politician sympathetic to the Labour Party presidential flag bearer, Peter Obi, should not seek an elective position at an old age, especially at the nation’s highest office where physical fitness was a non-negotiable requirement.

“I don’t think the ambition of Tinubu is for the good of Nigeria. If I was his age, I wouldn’t be seeking political office at his age. Certain things are good for certain times. Why is it his turn? What about other people in Nigeria?”

Deriding Mr Tinubu’s “emi lokan” (It is my turn) outburst, Mr Utomi asserted it was not the APC presidential candidate’s turn to be president and that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo would have made a formidable candidate for the ruling party.

“If there is any ‘emi lokan’ that is wrong, it is the ’emilokan of emilokan’ because ‘ko’kan’ (Not his turn),” Mr Utomi declared.

He added, “Our country has suffered so much from having ailing leaders, and that was why the vice president stepped up because he thought there was a challenge to that principle and direction.”

APC brought hardship on Nigerians, says Akeredolu’s ex-commissioner, defects to PDP

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s former ally and ex-water resources commissioner Yetunde Adeyanju has urged APC members to leave the ruling party, accusing it of bringing hardship on Nigerians as she and scores of APC supporters in Ondo defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Mrs Adeyanju led the decampees at an event on Monday held at the PDP secretariat in Ore, Odigbo local government.

“The APC has brought so much suffering to the people, and anybody with sympathy for the people must exit the party,” Mrs Adeyanju said.

Receiving the defectors, the PDP chairman in Ondo, Fatai Adams, said the party would be willing to receive more people into its fold ahead of the election.

Mr Adams expressed optimism that the PDP would return to power in 2023 and advised the defectors to support the party in their local areas.

Mrs Adeyanju, a prominent grassroots politician, resigned in July from Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s cabinet after being moved from the water resources ministry to the planning and urban ministry.

She was the leader of the women’s groups for Mr Akeredolu’s campaign during the 2016 and 2020 governorship elections.
