‘When I was NLC president, I mobilised Lagos ‘area boys’ for protests’ – Adams Oshiomhole reveals » Lifestylenaija | Breaking Celebrity Gist | Lifestyle | Entertainments



At the presidential rally in Lagos today, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole said when he was President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), he didn’t find it difficult to mobilise ‘area boys’ in Lagos for protests.

He made this remarks during the APC presidential rally held at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Saturday. According to Oshiomhole, the 16 years the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spent in power brought poverty. He also compared PDP to “barren women” tagged as “witches”, who Nigerians should “divorce”

In his words: “I don’t think there is anything new to be said in terms of giving you report of the performance of President Muhammadu Buhari over the past three and a half years. I think that has been eloquently done by Comrade Fashola, both in Yoruba, in English and probably some Latin in-between. And of course, Governor Emeritus, our National Leader, Comrade Asiwaju ‘Jagaban’ Tinubu, has also elaborated where Lagos was.

“The first quarrel I had with Asiwaju, and later, I extended it to Fashola, was that when I was President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, I didn’t have difficulties mobilising area boys under the bridge of Ojuelegba. Once we get them out, we block the bourgeoisie of Eko, Victoria Island, and other parts of the state.

“Those who know what Lagos was before Bola became the Governor, and later Fashola, now Ambode, and by the grace of God, Sanwo-Olu is coming to continue from where they stopped, will see the beauty when a state and a people are united and [bound] together by sheer commitment to embark on sustainable growth and development.”

Condemning the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he continued: “My comrades, if you marry a woman for 16 years, no pikin, and even your brothers and sisters are dying and they say she’s a witch, and you divorce her; you marry another one, and in three and a half years, ‘he’ delivers on rail, power, giving Trader Moni, giving pensioners money, paying Biafran pensioners that have been forgotten, doing N-Power, creating jobs, infrastructure, why will any man or woman suggest the old [party] that for 16 years delivered poverty, corruption, mismanagement; why will you bring them back?”

Governor Samuel Ortom Accuses INEC Of Colluding With APC To Shift Polls » Lifestylenaija | Breaking Celebrity Gist | Lifestyle | Entertainments



he Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of colluding with the All Progressive Congress to postpone the general elections.

Ortom made the allegation on Saturday in Makurdi, in an exclusive interview with Channels Television.

“How can you just justify that for three good years you planned for an election to be held. If there are logistics issues as alleged by the (INEC) Chairman, why did it take him to the last hour to announce a postponement in an arbitrary manner?” he questioned.

According to the governor, the electoral body acted based on a petition it allegedly received, stressing that the rescheduling of the elections was done deliberately.

Ortom further stated that the masses are tired of what he described as the deceit of the APC-led Federal Government, saying it has brought untold hardship on Nigerians.

“Just about two days ago, they wrote a petition urging them to postpone the election. It is not an afterthought thing. It was a deliberate plan orchestrated by the APC to make Nigerians suffer more because they know the fate of Nigerians.

“But I want to tell them that it is a matter of postponing the evil day. It will definitely come against them because Nigerians are fed up with this deceit,” he added.

The governor’s reaction comes few hours after INEC postponed the general elections by a week.

According to the Commission, the Presidential and National Assembly elections, initially scheduled for today, February 16, will now hold on February 23, while the governorship and state houses of assembly elections will take place on March 9.

INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, announced the decision at a short press briefing at 2:44 am on Saturday.
