"Many of those people attacking you online are your close friends" ---- Ugezu J Ugezu

Nollywood actor has made a comparison of Nigeria before and Nigeria now, judging that the country is worse than it was.

Taking to his Instagram handle, the actor posted a picture of a part of the city of Lagos in the 1960/70s. He opines that the city was looking more beautiful than it is now.

He blamed “men in uniform” for destroying the country. According to him, if present Nigeria is compared to former Nigeria, one would weep at the outcome.

Recall that the actor had earlier spoken against the ambition of Bola Tinubu to run for the 2023 Presidential election.

This recent post is speculated to be a continuation of his earlier post concerning the former governor of Lagos State.

2023; “I Want To Build On Buhari’s Legacy”: Tinubu Declares

Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former Lagos governor and national leader of the All Progressives Congress, has said he is aspiring to be president in 2023 so as to build on President Muhammadu Buhari’s legacy.

The ex-governor, who visited the president to discuss his political ambition on Monday, made this statement after meeting with him.

“I have the confidence, the vision, the capacity to rule, build on the foundation of Mr President, and turn Nigeria better. I have done that with commitment and unyielding, you know, in Lagos state,” Mr Tinubu said. “You’ve seen that experience and the capacity to turn things around, and that is what we are doing.”

Tinubu’s presidential ambition a huge joke -Bode George

Tinubu’s presidential ambition a huge joke -Bode George

Peoples Democratic Party stalwart, Chief Bode George, has said the presidential ambition of All Progressives Congress leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was a huge joke.

During a chat with The PUNCH on Monday, he said this in reaction to Tinubu’s decision to inform the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), of his intention to contest.

“This so-called ambition must be a huge joke. The Presidency of Nigeria is not for characters like Bola Tinubu. Look at how he mismanaged the resources of Lagos State. It is surprising that he can even dream of becoming the President of Nigeria. He is living in cuckoo land,” said George.

The former Deputy National Chairman of the PDP said the turn-out of things and double-crossing by those he trusts would shock him.

Although George admitted there were quality leaders in the South-West who could produce the next President of Nigeria, he, however, said Tinubu was not one of them.

Settling for Tinubu, he said , was an insult for the South-West, which he described as the most sophisticated region in the country.

George also said it was unfortunate that a hallowed ground like the Presidential Villa would be the location for Tinubu to declare his ambition.

Tinubu, who was governor of Lagos State, told Buhari of his intention to contest in next year’s election.

The former governor lamented that he was tired of being a kingmaker and it was time to actualise his dream.

2023 Presidency: We’ll sue you to court if you fail to contest, Group tells Tinubu

2023 Presidency: We’ll sue you to court if you fail to contest, Group tells Tinubu

2023 Presidency: We’ll sue you to court if you fail to contest, Group tells Tinubu

A group, The Disciples of Jagaban (DOJ) ,has made threats to sue to court the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, if he doesn’t contest for the Presidency in 2023.

National Coordinator of DOJ, Comrade Abdulhakeem Adegoke, made this known when being interviewed by journalists. He explained that the reason why Nigerians have to take him to court was because Nigeria had suffered enough and they know Tinubu’s capacity and strategy for change. 

“We know his capacity to change the scenario, his capacity to change things from negative to positive. “

“He has done it in Lagos state which supposed to be the headquarters of criminals and bandits, but he turned them into good persons.”

Politicians from across the North had converged on Kaduna Saturday, under the aegis of The Disciples of  Jagaban ( DOJ) ,to flag of sensitization of the electorate to the continuous voter registration ( CVR).

 Comrade Abdulhakeem Adegoke disclosed their target of boosting the support base of Asiwaju Bola  Ahmed  Tinubu.

He said that the decision to sue Tinubu if he refused to contest for election was made far back in 2019.

He said that the DOJ wanted good governance and encourages Nigerians to support Tinubu.

” Presently, the DOJ remains the first and the most widely accepted political institution for Tinubu’s 2023 Presidential ambition. We however, appreciate all other groups that cane after us because we cannot do it alone, especially with the deluge of resistance and opposition towards our principal, “he said. “

“EndSars and the Yoruba nation agitators, those who focused on our principal but hidden under something deference entirely, some of us relocated back to the South West, to make sure where ever they move to we were there to preach unity, love and harmony to all other tribes living in the Yoruba land, Today we give all glory to Almighty God all the fake and fabricated journey has come to an end, “

“As at then, some Nigerians believed it was too early; but we went ahead all the same. With the support of many trained intelligentsia and many men of God in both Faith’s in our midst, we prepared for all the attacks that happened before the criminally-minded perpetrators carried them out.”

“Just a month before the botched EndSARS protests of October 2020, DOJ called for a national prayer for our principal; but, some were looking at the request as if we did not know what we were doing at that time. When the attacks began, we stood by our principal, defending him against the hijackers of the protests that many innocent Nigerians ignorantly got involved in, without knowing the real devilish mission of some of their sponsors. We thank the Almighty God for His mercies on our principal despite the evil-minded attacks.”

“When the agitation for Yoruba nation was brewing, DOJ realized that this is going to be a completely Yoruba affair; so, we moved down to Yoruba land under the umbrella of Yoruba Welfare Group (YWG) to take effective steps to counter the attackers in Yoruba land; some innocent Yorubas were also involved because it started, hidden under the umbrella of fighting against kidnapping and banditry across Yoruba land. We followed them gently and ended up preventing them from mixing the bitter truth with their fabrication of lies. We were already aware that all these would be coming.”

“We are now calling on all Tinubu supporters to get prepared because some more are still coming. Instead of trying to manipulate others if we the leading one are not grumbling not to see other behind us, why must those who are just coming want to swallow those who have been labour before your establishment of your own. Please let all Tinubu groups be focused and stop manipulating ourselves, 

Today we in DOJ appreciate seeing many springing up behind us, we welcome you all,” he said.

Various groups and associations were represented on the occasion. 

Present at the occasion were distinguished personalities such as Senator Mohammed Sani Saleh, Engineer Muhammad Namadi, Alhaji Dangulguli, Alhaji Lawal Meyere, among others. 

Speaking in an interview with journalists on the sidelines of the voter registration sensitization exercise, Comrade Abdulhakeem Adegoke said, “From our findings, we found that millions of youths have refused to come out for the voter registration. With that, we are not safe. We need to let these young Nigerians realize that when you need a good governance, and you did not participate in the registration of those who will choose a good leader, this is totally zero. If there must be positive changes that we are talking about, its already identifying the good among the bad among us, in person of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“We are not adopting Tinubu because he  is a Muslim or Christian or Yoruba. We adopted him because he is a leader, based on  his past experience, his past achievements and past involvement…..we adopted him based on that and  there is nothing.

“Many people come out to say why Tinubu. But they’ve not come out to say this is a candidate  better than him,” he said.

Alhaji Meyere spoke on the sensitization of the youth as if they’re not sensitised to register, the nation would be losing a colossal number of the voting population. 

Engr. Namadi said they’ve begged the traditional ruler and others who were not pleased with the current political arrangement, to make themselves available and be part of the process. 

Senator Sani Saleh stressed the Importance of the voter sensitization exercise. He emphasised especially the need for youths to register.

He also said leadership needs experience which is acquired over time.

“Power belongs to the people, what is that power, it is the voter ‘s card, ” he said. 

The Woman leader, Maryam Baba  called on women and youths  to register and  participate actively in the political process, come 2023.

Major General Hassan Usman, retired, disclosed that even though he is a security consultant, the current situation in Nigeria made him restless.

He therefore called for all hands to be on deck to ensure that all youths of voting age, register and participate actively.
