The 75-year-old said he would seek his party’s presidential ticket to contest elections in February 2019 during a closed door meeting of the national executive committee of his All Progressives Congress (APC) party. He flew to Britain for talks with Prime Minister Theresa May a few hours later.
APC has three endemic problems: It’s policies are unpopular. Its policies don’t work. The APC led federal government hate everybody who does not agree with it games and scams. Its a party of incorrigible liars. The PDP wants to come back for another heist. Love or hate it, it’s time to face this reality: APC Satan and PDP Lucifer are finished!
Whatever may be their relationship, the Kano local election has added a sense of urgency to tackling the problem of underage voting. It is a nationwide problem, but more prevalent in the north. The recent remarks by Professor Lai Olurode, former INEC Commissioner for South west between 2010 and 2015, were poignant.
The statement read: “As part of on-going efforts to improve cohesion within the All Progressives Congress (APC), President Muhammadu Buhari has designated Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to lead the consultation, reconciliation and confidence building efforts. “The assignment will involve resolving disagreements among party members, party leadership and political office holders in some states of the Federation.”
President Muhammadu Buhari said: ”There is something that hit me very hard and I am happy I hit it back at somebody. “Seven states of the North are only represented in my cabinet by junior ministers, ministers of state. In Southeast, I got 198,000 votes but I have four substantive ministers and seven junior ministers from there. You are closer to the people than myself now that I have been locked up here, don’t allow anybody to talk of ethnicity. It is not true.”
