Oyo State government shuts down the business premises of Obasanjo located in Ibadan

Oyo state government on Tuesday shut down the business premises of Obasanjo Farms, located in Oluyole Industrial Estate, Ibadan.

The enforcement order was executed by the state’s inter-ministerial enforcement unit being coordinated by the Board of Internal Revenue.

Other companies affected by the order included Black Horse, Heinemann Educational Books, Lister Flour Mills, Evans Brother, Butterfield bakery, Chicken Republic, MRS oil and Rasmed Publicity.

Chairman of the board, Bicci Alli, told journalists that the order became necessary after the failure of the companies to comply with the state tax laws’ directives despite being served reminders on several occasions.

Stressing that the enforcement will be continuous, he warned all corporate organizations in the state to do the needful and be corporately responsible in line with the laws of the land.

He said:

“the exercise we carried out today is not something new and not outside the law. It is within the law. We went to restrain some corporate organizations that failed to pay what is due to Oyo state government after giving due notices, demand notices and even public notices to that effect and they failed to pay.

“So we went to those places to restrain them from having access to their premises and it’s going to be a continuous exercise, all through the week and even next week.

“What they are guilty of is the payment of the environmental development levy. Some of them owe about two years. We wrote to them and gave them notices to pay, they refused to pay. It was as a result of their failure to pay that we now embarked on the needful.

“But it’s so sad that not until we have to take this step against the firms that they are now actually coming out to pay.

“Government is not interested in disrupting the business of these corporate organizations; the business of government is to create an enabling environment for business to thrive which Oyo state government has done tremendously well in the last few years and that’s why you see businesses springing up on daily basis in Oyo state. The government cannot disrupt their businesses unless where it is absolutely necessary.

“The focus now is that we will collect every kobo that people are owing the state government, we did publication on August 13, in two widely read newspapers, drawing the attention of corporate organizations and individual residents of Oyo state to pay all their taxes, dues and levies that are supposed to be paid to the state government within 14 days.

“But that was like a reminder, prior to that: we served demand notices in line with extant laws on corporate organizations, individuals to pay their taxes.

Some of the taxes are due early January, February, March, depending on the position of the law. However, when they failed to pay, we did the reminder in line with the position of the law and we now did a public notice on 14th August, giving them 14 days to be able to pay. So, nobody could tell us that they were not informed.”

9-year-old daughter of Kenyan Senior Magistrate kidnapped, tortured and murdered

Maribel Kapolon, the kidnapped 9-year-old daughter of Kenyan Senior Magistrate has been found dead with her body dumped in a forest.

Maribel Kapolon was kidnapped on September 6, while walking to her home with three other pupils of Consolata Primary school shortly after she was dropped by a school bus.

The deceased who is the daughter of a Senior Resident Magistrate of Githongo Law Courts, Ms Caroline Kemei, reportedly rushed to the car of the stranger leaving the other children.

“The man called to her and she rushed to him shouting “habari uncle”. There was no commotion, hence her fellow pupils and those in nearby shops would not have suspected anything sinister.” says the report.

According to the Police, the daughter of Kenyan Senior Magistrate had been called in a similar manner by people said to be her relatives. Her abductors killed her after demanding a ransom of Sh500,000, which was not met by her family.

The decomposing body of the little girl still dressed in her school uniform was found on September 15, by locals visiting a giant Meru Oak, a popular tourist attraction in Imenti forest, about three kilometers from Meru town.

Though the police are yet to establish the motive of the kidnapped and subsequent killing, it was gathered that family members are being questioned by detectives as they try to solve the crime.

The corpse of the little girl had one shoe, body bone signs of torture, cuts on her thighs and an arm burned by acid.

“We don’t know if it’s related to her parents’work or it was a domestic issue. We are investigating to know if the killers made demands,” said an officer.

Pro-marijuana activists cheer as South Africa’s highest court legalizes the use of cannabis by adults in private places

In a unanimous ruling, judges also legalised the growing of marijuana for private consumption. Before now, South Africa’s governments had opposed its legalisation, arguing the drug was “harmful” to people’s the health.

Three cannabis users who had faced prosecution for using cannabis brought the case, saying the ban “intrudes unjustifiably into their private spheres”.

In his judgment, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo said: “It will not be a criminal offence for an adult person to use or be in possession of cannabis in private for his or her personal consumption.”

It will, however, remain illegal to use cannabis in public and to sell and supply it. The Cannabis Development Council of South Africa welcomed the ruling and called on the government to drop charges against people found in possession of the drug.

Jeremy Acton, the leader of the Dagga Party, which campaigns for the use of cannabis, said the ruling should have gone further to legalise the carrying of marijuana in public. Cannabis is referred to as “dagga” in South Africa.

More people have access to mobile phones than toilets in Nigeria – UNICEF

A new report from UNICEF revealed that more people have access to mobile phones than toilets in Nigeria.

Speaking during a two-day media dialogue on European Union (EU) Niger Delta Water Project in Port Harcourt, River State, UNICEF’s Chief of Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Zaid Jurji, said 140 million people in Nigeria have cell phones, while only 97 million have access to improved sanitation.

Quoting a 2018 report by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), the UNICEF Chief of WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) noted that the sanitation sector in Nigeria is severely under-resourced, as sanitation is only 19 percent of WASH budget.

According to him, only 39 percent of Nigerians use an improved toilet that is not shared by more than one household. He added that 46 million people still practice open defecation in Nigeria, with 32 percent living in rural areas and 12 percent in urban areas.

Zaid concluded his speech, by stating that the figure is far from the Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG) target by 2030, which aims at achieving universal access to drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene.

At the event, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who was represented by the principal information officer of the ministry, Toye Falayi, urged media partners to sustain advocacy for improving water sanitation and hygiene.

 

Ambode Storms Osogbo With Wife To Continue Begging Tinubu

Embattled Lagos Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has stormed Osogbo, the Osun State capital with his wife, First Lady Bolanle Patience Ambode and an entourage; as he doubles down on peace moves with APC godfather Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu aka The Jagaban.

Tinubu is backing 53-year-old Managing Director of the Lagos State Property Development Corporation (LSPDC) Mr. Babajide Sanwoolu, ahead of the Lagos APC governorship primary election.

Tinubu has reportedly fallen out with Ambode who has since acquired the N22.5million APC governorship nomination form.

APC chieftains and President Muhammadu Buhari will converge on Osogbo today, Tuesday, September 18, 2018 to campaign for governorship flagbearer in the Osun election, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola.

Down on bended knees

“Ambode arrived Osogbo with his wife, full convoy and entourage which is unusual because he’s never one to attend political rallies in the past. He doesn’t really care about rallies and has conveniently missed the APC’s many rallies,” one APC chieftain told Pulse over the phone.

Pulse has also learned that Ambode’s task on the sidelines in Osun will be to continue pleading with Tinubu and ask other APC chieftains, including President Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, to beg Tinubu on his behalf.

One source told Pulse that after Tinubu and Ambode met at Jim Ovia’s book launch on Monday, Mrs. Ambode literally rolled on the floor to beg Tinubu on her husband’s behalf.

“I really don’t know whether she was trying to beg Tinubu to provide a soft landing for her husband in the event that he doesn’t get a second term ticket or beg Tinubu to back her husband instead of Sanwoolu. But like you know, The Jagaban has always told Ambode that the situation is now beyond him, that he can no longer help him at this point”, the source offered.

Preferred APC governorship candidate for Lagos, Jide Sanwoolu, has also arrived Osogbo with his own foot soldiers and supporters to counter whatever plot Ambode intends to execute, Pulse was told.

Mum is the word

Ambode’s representatives have opted to say little to the media. Repeated inquiries on the current intrigues in Lagos politics have elicited no response from Alausa—the seat of government in Lagos—or from the governor’s representatives.

The Mandate Movement, the political structure which answers to Tinubu and which is headed by Osun Governor Rauf Aregbesola, has openly declared its support for Sanwoolu.

All 57 local council chairmen in Lagos have also thrown their weight behind Sanwoolu.

“Ambode has no structure behind him at the moment and you can’t win a primary election in a state like Lagos without a political structure behind you. The best thing for Ambode to do now is go home or go down fighting like a man. If I were in his shoes, I’d choose the former”, said Segun Adeyemi, a political pundit.

 

He is a madman and a scammer-KWAM 1 Shades Governor Ambode

Legend Fuji musician, Wasiu Ayinde aka Kwam 1 in a recent event, openly declared that the governor of Lagos state is a ‘madman’ and a ‘scammer’ who scammed him for 3 and a half years.

He made this declaration in a viral video. According to the veteran singer, Ambode has done no good thing for Lagos state, all the good things being enjoyed in Lagos state are courtesy of the former governors of the state (Tinubu and Fashola)

“All the good things in Lagos were seen during Tinubu and Fashola’s regimes. This other madman only does his mouth like this. He scammed me for 3 and a half years. I campaigned for him when he had nothing. Now he has gotten money from the government, he now turned himself to God” He said.

Sokoto State governor and PDP presidential aspirant, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, said on Tuesday that he would accept the outcome of the party’s presidential primary scheduled for between Oct. 5 and Oct. 6 in Port Harcourt. Tambuwal

“I had left PDP for APC in view of the situation we found ourselves under PDP in the last government and joined APC for our conviction and presumption that the party would do the expected,’’ he added.

He promised to address the security challenges in Zamfara, Birnin Gwari in Kaduna, Benue, Taraba as well as Kebbi if elected the president.

Earlier, the Deputy State Chairman of the party, Alhaji Musa Argungu, assured Tambuwal that party members would support his aspiration.

Who Am I To Speak After The Jagaban Has Spoken- Ambode To Tinubu

The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Monday jokingly asked if he was qualified to speak after the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, had addressed an audience at an event.

“Actually, I didn’t prepare to come and say anything here and who am I to speak after the Jagaban has spoken?”, he questioned.

He made the comments while addressing the audience at the launch of the new book of the founder of Zenith Bank, Jim Ovia.

Speaking about the new book, ‘Africa Rise And Shine’ the governor said he was certain that the wealth of experience shared by the author will serve as a compass for young entrepreneurs in the country.

He said, “I am certain that the wealth of experience shared will serve as a compass for young entrepreneurs who dare to dream and redefine the African narrative”.

The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, was also at the book launch.

Other dignitaries at the event include foremost chartered accountant, Akintola Willams; CEO Channels Media Group, Mr John Momoh; Chairman of Heirs Holdings, United Bank for Africa, Tony Elumelu.

Cocacola To Produce Cannabis Drinks

Coca-Cola is said to be close to a deal that could see it infuse cans of soft drink with cannabis.

The US giant is said to be in ‘serious’ discussions with a cannabis producer as it looks to grab a slice of the burgeoning marijuana market.

A deal with the firm, Aurora Cannabis, could lead to Coca-Cola selling drinks infused with marijuana, which is said to have health benefits such as easing inflammation, pain and cramping.

The conglomerate is likely to use cannabidiol, known as CBD, to develop the drinks. CBD is the non-psychoactive ingredient found in cannabis that is said to help ease pain but without the buzz or high some users seek.

According to US-based Bloomberg news, sources close to negotiations said Coca-Cola and Aurora are ‘pretty advanced down the path’ of doing a deal. ‘It’s going to be more of a recovery drink,’ the source added.
If Coca-Cola seals a contract with Aurora it would be the first major soft drinks firm to make a move into the marijuana market.

Canada is set to legalise the recreational use of cannabis next month as more states across the US make it legal.

Akinwunmi Ambode meets his political godfather Bola Tinubu for the first time since news emerged that both men had fallen apart

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode was all smiles as he posed with the Jagaban of Nigerian politics, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who has been described in the media as his stalemate.

Last week, news made the rounds that Mr Tinubu, a former governor and de facto political godfather of state, had given his blessing to a former commissioner of the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, instead of Mr Ambode, who he helped make governor.

Though Mr Ambode has denied any rift with Mr Tinubu, many acolytes of Mr Tinubu have already pledged their support for Mr Sanwo-Olu, who will be competing for the party’s ticket.

Both men were sighted at launch of “Africa Rise and Shine”, a book by Jim Ovia, chairman of Zenith Bank. At the event, Mr Ambode sent the audience reeling with laughter while acknowledging Mr Tinubu.

The crowd erupted in uncontrollable laughter when the embattled Governor of Lagos state Akinwunmi Ambode quickly walked down to pose beside APC chieftain Bola Tinubu.

It was a sight to behold following recent reports of a fallout between them.

It remains to seen what will be the fate of the embattled Lagos state Governor following reports of mediations by political heavy weight in the country.

Mr Ambode told the audience after he was given a chance to speak that he did not prepare to give one

“Actually, I didn’t prepare to come and say anything here… And who am I to speak after the Jagaban has spoken?” Mr Ambode asked.

But after the laughter subsided, he went on to shower praises on Mr Ovia.

“But obviously, the truth is, there is no person that has actually gone through the profession of accountancy that would not have had anything to do with Uncle Jim, and that is the truth.”

Court jails Kidnapper Evans and his gang members for 41 years

Two former Evans gang members have been sentenced by an Ikeja High Court sitting in Lagos State yesterday, to 41 years in prison.

According to a report by The Guardian, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo sentenced the convicts, 32-year-old Kelvin Emenike Ukoh and Emeka Obasi, 33 over the abduction of one Ugoje Jude, a shipping agent, and his employee, Miss Piriye Gogo, on August 3, 2012.

The convicts were arraigned in 2013 alongside three others: Uche Igbani, 28, Chibuzor Osuagwu, 33 and a 36-year-old woman, Onowu Ngozi, on a 14 count-charge bothering on conspiracy, kidnapping, armed robbery and murder.

The gang had kidnapped Ugoje and Gogo who were taken to an unknown destination by their leader, Evans.

While stating the fact of the case before sentence, the prosecution team, lead by Mrs. K.O. Sarumi, told the court that the convict and other defendants committed the crime in August, 2012 at about 8:00p.m. in Festac Town, Lagos.

Narrating her ordeal before the court, Gogo said the three men accosted them with rifles on their way home and that she was almost raped inside the car, but was saved by her monthly menstrual period.

While being led in evidence before the court, Gogo disclosed that during the abduction, one of the kidnappers, Obasi, came into the car, after dragging her boss out for negotiation at an undisclosed location, and started fondling with her breast.

Gogo said:

“He came into the car, tore my clothes, pulled down a side of my bra and began caressing my breast.

He thereafter started dragging down my shirt and I began begging him. I begged him until I had nothing else I could plead with.

I begged him intensely for mercy and even told him that I was menstruating.

It was as though all my pleas fail on deaf ears, I had to insert my hand into my vagina just to show him.

The blood I showed him prevented him from raping me. It was a terrible experience.

“He, thereafter, asked whether Jude was the owner of the company. And I replied that we were just clearing agents.

They also seized our mobile phones, jewellery and money.

They blindfolded Jude, brought him back into the car, asked me to face down with my eyes closed, and then drove off to another location.

They spoke Igbo almost all the time so I could barely understand what they were saying.”

Also testifying, Jude said his abductors initially ordered him to pay N10 million for his release but after negotiations, they collected N5 million.

After listening to them, the trial judge convicted and sentenced Ukoh and Obasi to five, 15 and 21 years for conspiracy, kidnapping and armed robbery respectively, while the other three were discharged and acquitted by court.

The judge held that the prosecution could not prove that those acquitted Igbani, Osuagwu and Ngozi were linked to the alleged charges of murder, conspiracy, kidnapping and armed robbery.

Davido reportedly escapes gun shot attack during rally in Osun state

Don’t use my song to campaign for Saraki- Wasiu Ayinde warns

According to Sahara Reporters, Fuji legend, Wasiu Ayinde, popularly known as K1 De Ultimate, released a statement through his media manager, Kunle Rasheed, on Sunday, threatening to sue anyone who uses his song to campaign for Saraki, noting that “he is already talking with his lawyers to seek redress on the matter”.

The statement read:

“The only person he is rooting for to become the president in 2019 is no other than President Muhammadu Buhari. This he has shown by telling the world where his loyalty belongs at every occasion lately.

“K1 has also on countless occasions granted interviews to several media organizations that he is for Buhari till 2023.

“K1 is also using this medium to sound it clear that he will never ever endorse someone who has acted as a betrayal to his party right from when he assumed the office till the time he left the party for the opposition.

“I will liken that to artifice. I am highly disappointed that someone like the senate president can be involved in such a fraud because it is evidently clear that the only person I am rooting for to become the president in 2019 is no other than President Muhammadu Buhari.

“The only time I had an encounter with the senate president was at the marriage ceremony of Mohammed Mustapha’s son in Ilorin in 2015.

“So, he has no right to circulate any song without his approval; doing so amounts to fraud.

“I remain a strong party member and the only person I support to become the president in 2019 is Muhammadu Buhari.”

Dele Momodu Admits To Spreading Fake News About Davido And The Adelekes’ Accounts Frozen By EFCC

Ovation International CEO, Dele Momodu, last week, confirmed that the EFCC froze the bank accounts of singer, Davido and that of his uncle, Senator Ademola Adeleke…

He’d sent in tweets about the allegations on the EFCC, writing,

“I refuse to believe that anyone, in the name of politics, would freeze the bank accounts of a hardworking family THE ADELEKEs including that of this young icon DAVIDO who has done our country very proud… God save our dear beloved nation… I pray it is fake news…”

Adeleke family accounts frozen; source of information unimpeachable. I repeat, the accounts of Adeleke’s family were FCMB Frozen….. you heard me? FCMB

… later on, after the EFCC released a statement, stating that they didn’t freeze the Adelekes’ accounts, Dele Momodu tweeted,

When news of the freezing of family accounts of the Adelekes was going viral, The Boss made a few calls to those who should be in the know and our source confirmed the story and even mentioned the accounts were in FCMB. We hereby withdraw it with sincere apologies…

Journalists must still trust their sources no matter the risk of error… No human is above mistakes. Only those who managed nothing in their lives are always perfect…

His tweet of course, got reactions…

2019 presidency: I’ll do to you what your father did to me – Babangida tells Saraki

Bukola Saraki, Nigeria’s Senate President who recently visited Ibrahim Babangida as part of his nationwide campaign tour for the forthcoming Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, convention, got a positive nod from the former head of state.

Former Nigeria Military Head of State, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida told Bukola Saraki, that he will support him in his bid to become president just the way his late father supported him during his failed presidential ambition.

“It is my turn to do what your father did to me”, Babangida said.

“I will rightly observe that you are my son, for coming to pay a courtesy visit.

“I remember when I was still in office, I spoke with your father, Oloye Saraki who was always providing advises on a number of things attached to this country.

“He always made himself available to me, to give advises and encouragement which will move the country forward.

“Your visit today is historical, now it is your time and turn to come to me and I will do just that.”

“You mentioned three things that are very dear to us as military, and we fought to get them to preserve them.

“They are unity of the country, the security of lives and the economic development.

“The security of the people and their well being of the ordinary man are the right objectives for campaign and leadership for this country.

“I commend you, you have my support for these three reasons you have itemised and I hope the people will listen to you.”

Saraki will rule Nigeria for 4 years – Primate Elijah Ayodele

Renowned Nigerian prophet, founder and spiritual leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, with headquarters in Lagos, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has in an interview with Vera Wisdom-Basey, spoken on the 2019 elections and other expectations in Nigeria.

He dropped a bombshell prophecy while answering questions as he said, presidential aspirant and Nigerian senator, Bukola Saraki will rule the country for four years.

He was asked;

You are so particular about Saraki, what is his mission?

“He will rule for just four years and put the country in order. I am talking as a prophet of God. I said in 2015 that so many things will happen in Buhari’s administration and it has happened. If PDP puts their house in order; that is what will defeat any party.

“If PDP wants to do well, let them be united, and know what they are doing and do the right thing. I don’t belong to any party.

“Most people who are defecting will still land in jail because judgment is coming to all Nigerian leaders. Those who are defecting now are not seeing the consequences ahead of them.

“The fore-fathers of this nation are not asleep; they want to revenge, we have done a lot of blood sacrifice and that is why things are happening like this.

“Another set of three different Boko Haram is coming to Nigeria; let’s just watch and see what will happen. I fear nobody because God has sent me; anything that happens, let the will of God be done. Nobody is talking about the economy? There is poverty and hunger in the country; nobody is talking about it.

“It is politics everywhere. They are just doing packaging; nobody is talking about anything that is happening to Nigerians, or how they feel.

“I am not giving any opinion; there is poverty everywhere and because of this, people will vote against their conscience because this is the election of the highest bidder. People will not want to vote for the people they want, but they will vote for a temporal bail out, and that will not settle the case.”

“Return our stolen assets, then see how well we will do.” Buhari to UK bank

THE Presidency has rebuked international banking giant, HSBC, for saying that President Muhammadu Buhari’s second tenure would spell doom for the nation’s economy .

The president in replying the UK bank, stated that the bank was keenly supporting the looting of the nation’s treasury as the bank has soiled its hand with ‘‘millions of US dollars yet-to-be-recovered Abacha loot’’.

According to the press statement, HSBC has laundered more than USD 100,000,000 for the late General Sani Abacha in Jersey, Paris, London and Geneva.

The Presidency in a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu called on the bank to return all Abacha loots and stop the doomsday prophecy.

Read the press statement from the presidency:

“The Presidency wishes to make clear to all Nigerians, and particularly the global banking giant HSBC which said the second term of President Muhammadu Buhari would stunt the economy, that what killed Nigeria’s economy in the past was the unbridled looting of state resources by leaders, the type which was actively supported by HSBC.

A bank that soiled its hand with ‘‘millions of US dollars yet-to-be-recovered Abacha loot’’, and continued until a few months ago to shield the stolen funds of one of the leaders of the Nigerian Senate has no moral right whatsoever to project that a “second term for Mr. Buhari raises the risk of limited economic progress and further fiscal deterioration.”

Rather, we ask them to heed President Buhari’s constant refrain: return our stolen assets, then see how well we will do.

From the facts available to our investigation agencies, HSBC’s put down on President Buhari is no more than an expression of frustration over the administration’s measures put in place which has abolished grand corruption, the type which this bank thrives on in many countries.
They may also just be out to discredit the President out of the fear of sanctions and fines following the national assets that are stolen.
With the coming of President Buhari, it is not a secret that corruption, corrupt individuals, banks and other corporate entities that aided corrupt practices are under investigation for various offenses.

For many of them, including their friends in the media, they would rather have President Buhari out of their way, for business as usual to return.
Our investigation agencies believe that HSBC had laundered more than USD 100,000,000 for the late General Sani Abacha in Jersey, Paris, London and Geneva.

Among these accounts on the records are: AC: S-104460 HSBC Fund Admin Ltd. Jersey ($12,000,000); AC 37060762 HSBC Life (Europe), U.K ($20,000,000) and AC: 38175076 HSBC Bank Plc. U.K ($1,600,000).
The bank is also suspected in the laundering of proceeds of corruption involving more than 50 other Nigerians, including a serving Senator as earlier indicated.

In a book, “Secrecy World: Inside the Panama Papers Investigation”, published in 2017, Jack Bernstein told the story of global money laundering highlighting the unenviable place of the HSBC.

This is a bank that states and federal authorities in the U.S. forced to pay $1.92 billion to settle charges of money laundering; fined $1.2 billion in Hong Kong for “systemic deficiencies” in bond sales and was made to pay $100 million in currency rigging settlement as reported by The Telegraph of 18th January, 2018.”

Nigeria is not ripe for youth president – MKO Abiola’s son

The winner of 1993 presidential election, Chief MKO Abiola’s son, Abdulmumuni Abiola, has said the country is not ripe for a youth president.

Abiola told journalists at the maiden national youth summit organised by The Zealous Kwara Youths in Ilorin, Kwara State, on Saturday, that though he was hopeful that a youth could become president someday, it was imperative to give President Muhammadu Buhari a second chance, The Punch reports.

He said:

“I do believe that there shall be a time, just like in Canada and France, when we have somebody that is around 30 in power. I don’t just think that time is right. I think there is a reason why Buhari is there and I would want us to be patient to see him through.

We should give him another four years and he will handover power to the youth.

“I do not have anybody else to campaign for. Somebody after 20 years honoured my father and did what other people refused to do, so I am supporting Buhari for a second term.”

The President of the ZKY, Mr John Adegboyega, said it was necessary to sanitise Nigeria of corrupt practises.

Adegboyega added that 2019 was not yet time for a youth to become president.

He said the youth should participate actively in the political process and elect people who would deliver good governance and move the country forward.
