2023: Peter Obi’s Momentum, Spectacle Won’t Guarantee Him Victory, Umahi Speaks On Labour Party Rallies

Published

…Insists Tinubu Does Not Need To Show Any Proof Of Life To Anyone.

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has said that the Labour Party’s initial wave of momentum and spectacle doesn’t guarantee victory at the polls, adding that his party, the All Progressives Congress will soon commence its rallies and mobilisation nationwide.

The governor, who is the South-East Chairman for the APC presidential campaign, said there are still many months for campaigns ahead of the 2023 general elections and there is nothing to worry about the delayed inauguration of the APC Presidential Campaign Council.

Umahi spoke on Monday when he featured as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme.

With the official commencement of campaigns on September 28, supporters of Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, have stormed major cities across the country to declare support for the former governor of Anambra State.

Obi’s supporters known as ‘Obidients’ on October 1, 2022, held peaceful rallies across the country just as Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has been seen crisscrossing states in the country to mobilise support ahead of February 2023 polls.

Told on Monday that the Labour Party and the PDP have flagged off campaigns and rallies whilst the APC is yet to do so, Umahi said, “We have many months to elections and we have many months to campaign. The first to start does not translate to the first to finish. So, the APC is a bank and they are coming up with programmes. It will soon happen.

On what he meant by the APC being a bank, the governor clarified that the ruling party is a bank “in terms of mass mobilisation, in terms of acceptability”.

APC had released a 422-man Presidential Campaign Council list and scheduled inauguration for September 28 but postponed it indefinitely as some aggrieved members of the ruling party including the National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, allegedly said Tinubu did not carry the party’s National Working Committee along before the release of the list.

In the same vein,Umahi  said that Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC, has life and does not need to show any proof of life to anyone.

He disclosed this early morning today while fielding questions on the Channels TV Morning Rise Program.

Recall that there have been speculations that the APC’s candidate may be battling some health crisis following his absence at the recent signing of a peace accord agreement by presidential candidates of political parties.

Reports later emerged on Thursday that he is currently in London, United Kingdom.

However, Tinubu has also shared a video of himself working on a fitness bike to prove that he’s strong and healthy.

However, he failed to state why he was absent.

Reacting to the speculations, Governor Umahi stated that people asking about the health of the country’s leaders, including that of his party’s candidate, are being petty.

“Nobody is totally well, and nobody is totally sick; this is one point. Another point is that Nigerians are petty; some of us are petty.

“A man doing his workout, you know, is being videoed and circulated on social media without his knowledge.

“And so, a man that has life does not need to show any proof of life. Asiwaju has life, and he doesn’t need to show any proof of life, and you can see that.

“I think we should concentrate on tangibles because life is like being on the bus, and you don’t know where the next bus stop is.

“Some of the people talking about the health of the leaders of the country don’t even know when their bus stop is coming. So, we should rely on tangibles. Every life and health rests in the hand of God; that is how I look at it”, he said.

‘How Fake Zenith Bank Agent Stole N141,000 From My Account’, Hairstylist Narrates

Published

on

Mary Ajah, a hairstylist in Osun State, has narrated how a fraudster posing as a Zenith Bank representative defrauded her of N141,000.

The hairstylist said the scammer succeeded in his scheme because she was desperate to resolve a problem she had with her current bank account.

She said she chatted with the bank to find out what she could do to receive alerts via text messages and her email address but she was told to reach out to them via their social media handles or email addresses as they were not receiving calls at the time.

According to Ajah, this problem of not receiving notifications from her account had been going on since October, immediately after creating a current bank account.

“I sent an email to Zenith Bank, but they didn’t respond on time, so I chatted with them via Twitter. I got a number from the Twitter account and was asked to chat with them on WhatsApp,” Ajah said.

“I didn’t realise on time that the number I received was from an impostor. While we were chatting, the scammer said he wanted to help me link up my savings account to my current account so I could start getting notifications.

“Then I got a number from Twitter to chat with on WhatsApp, but I didn’t realise that it wasn’t their number.

“He requested my card details, which I gave him. But immediately after that, I noticed that they withdrew N141,000. It was then that I had to tell my account officer what had happened.”

Ajah stated that she reached out to the bank after the ugly incident occurred but nothing could be done to salvage the situation.

2023: I Rescued You From Obasanjo’s Onslaught, Tinubu Fires Atiku

….Your Continuous Gaffes, Miscues Are Effects Of Your Failing Health, Ex VP Replies Asiwaju

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has claimed he “rescued” the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar from former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Abubakar, who served as vice-president under Obasanjo, had a running battle with his former principal for years.

Both men reconciled ahead of the 2019 general election.

However, Obasanjo has since thrown his weight behind Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) for this year’s poll.

Speaking on Monday during a campaign rally in Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom, Tinubu said: “I am the one that rescued him from Obasanjo who wanted to roast him like goat meat.

“He ran away to Dubai, and when the election came again, he (Atiku) came for stomach infrastructure. We rehabilitated him in Lagos and gave him a ticket but he wasted it and used it to collect money.

“He faced Obasanjo, faced Buhari and failed. He failed with Jonathan. He failed in all his subjects.”

Meanwhile, the camp of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar said the “constant gaffes” of All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate Bola Tinubu were embarrassing.

Tinubu has made over 20 gaffes publicly since he declared his intention to contest, Atiku’s special assistant on public communication Phrank Shaibu indicated on Monday.

A statement he signed said in Tinubu’s rally in Akwa Ibom, the APC flagbearer goofed about making Atiku a Senate President though his opponent never contested any legislative election.

Shaibu noted that the former Lagos governor’s gaffes and miscues are “effects of his failing health” which present danger to national security.

The aide recalled Tinubu’s comment on recruitment of 50 million youths into the Army to solve the unemployment problem, advice to Nigerians to renew their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) before they expire, among others.
