2023: Again, Naja’atu Mohammed Attacks Tinubu, Says Ex-Lagos Gov Has No Blueprint To Tackle Insecurity In North



…Insists She Can Never Support Peter Obi

A former All Progressives Congress, APC, Campaign Director on Civil Society Organization, Naja’atu Mohammed, has disclosed what the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu told her about insecurity in the North.

Naja’atu disclosed that Tinubu told her he had no blueprint for tackling insecurity in the North during a meeting in London.

She disclosed this while alluding to why she resigned from the ruling APC.

On Arise Television’s programme, Morning Show, Naja’atu said: “I met with Tinubu in the North and he told me “I don’t have a blueprint for tackling insecurity in the North; if I have I might be killed.

“Having a blueprint for tackling insecurity in the North would mean I will be stepping on so many toes.

“He has been urging me to take the appointment and I refused.”

A few days ago, Naja’atu resigned her appointment with the APC and Tinubu’s campaign team.

However, Tinubu’s campaign team claimed she was sacked for being a mole.

Meanwhile, Naja’atu Mohammed, has explained why she would not support Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, for the presidency. 

But while speaking further on her choice of Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as her preferred candidate for the forthcoming presidential election, Naja’atu said she is choosing between a devil and the deep blue sea between Tinubu and Atiku.

She said, ”I am not doing Atiku today for anything. I gave my reasons, and my reasons I said, Peter Obi is a movement, I said that. And I also said this is the first time the Nigerian youths have a voice and are coming together to form some kind of movement; it is not even about Peter Obi. This movement will outlive Mr Peter Obi. What I said is that they have a structural problem.

”I will give you an example; Buhari, since 2003, was getting 15 million votes, but he could not be president. Why? Despite the cult followership the North gave to Buhari, why didn’t he win? He did not win because he had structural problems and could not build bridges. It took the alliance, which he had rejected severally with the Southwest in particular, that he was able to become president; that is the only reason. And what I will also say is this, I have no luxury of time; there is no luxury of time, and that is why I said I am choosing between a devil and a deep blue sea.”

Tinubu: ‘Big Lie, I Can’t Endorse Feb 25 Illegitimate Outcome Of Flawed Process, Atiku Clears Air



Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar has denied endorsing Bola Tinubu’s victory.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential flagbearer defeated Atiku and Peter Obi of the Labour Party, LP, and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP.

In a statement on Saturday, Atiku said his attention was drawn to a fake press release attributed to him, “purportedly giving legitimacy to the widely rigged presidential election”.

Atiku stressed that it did not emanate from him and should be treated with repudiation because it was contrived “by those who illegally appropriated the mandate of the people”.

The former Vice President said his lawyers still have been mandated to challenge the outcome of the February 25 poll.

Atiku reiterated his outright rejection of the “pre-determined outcome of the February 25 election” and vowed to continue to challenge the legality.

Calling it the “worst election in our democratic history”, the Wazirin Adamawa said his fight was not for personal interest but for the interest of Nigeria and its citizens.

“It is aimed at deepening democracy and ensuring that we do not confer legitimacy to an outcome of illegitimacy,” the statement added

#ENDSARS: Sanwo-Olu Orders Payment Of N5m To Assaulted Uber Driver



The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has ordered the payment of N5 million compensation to an Uber driver, Adedotun Clement, who was assaulted by security operatives during an #ENDSARS anniversary rally in the state in October 2021.

Justice Ambrose Lewis-Allagoa of the Federal High Court, Lagos, had on March 14 ordered the state government and Nigeria Police Force to pay the sum while ruling on an application filed by the driver.

Clement was assaulted by police operatives and members of the Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Agency during a rally to mark the first anniversary of the #ENDSARS protest near the Lekki Toll Gate in the state.

The governor, who confirmed the development on his Twitter handle on Saturday, said he had directed the state’s Attorney- General and Commissioner for Justice, Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN) to set up a meeting with the driver and pay him the compensation awarded by the court.

He reaffirmed his commitment to the rule of law in the state.

Sanwo-Olu wrote: “Good evening Lagos, as governor, I’m committed to upholding the rule of law and protecting citizens’ rights with empathy and authority.

“I recently became aware of the case involving Mr. Clement Adedotun and the judgement by the Federal High Court, and I understand the impact this legal battle has had on him.

“After reviewing Mr. Clement’s case, I’ve directed the Honorable Attorney General to set up a meeting and pay him the compensation awarded by the court.”

The governor, who confirmed that the state government has appealed the ruling, said he ordered the payment of the compensation for the good of the society.

“Although the State Government has appealed the ruling, I’ve interceded in this instance in the interest of the public good and requested that the State’s Attorney General comply with the court’s ruling.

“As a strong advocate for the rule of law, I commend all parties for seeking justice through the appropriate channels, and I remain committed to upholding the rights of all Lagosians,” he added.
