3 Days To Go: Nigerians Knock APC On Campaign PromisesContinue Reading>>>

 

With a few days to the end of the eight-year tenure of the APC-led administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, feelings have been expressed over key promises upon which Nigerians voted for him.

There are also questions as to the desirability of the continuation of the APC at the national level and whether the incoming administration of Bola Ahmed Tinubu will make any difference.Continue Reading>>>

Buhari defeated a sitting President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, during the March 2015, presidential poll after securing 15,424,921 votes against Jonathan’s 12,853,62, as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Riding on the crest of the “change” mantra, Buhari and his APC had in the build-up to the poll unveiled their plans for the country and Nigerians as encapsulated in the party’s manifesto.

Nigerian voters threw their weight behind the candidature of the Daura-born military general- turned politician and that of his running mate, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, and ushered them into office.

The Court of Appeal, Abuja division, on Thursday, imposed the sum of N40m fine on an Abuja-based lawyer, Mr Abrose Owuru, for filing a frivolous suit which he had sought to prevent the May 29, inauguration of the President-elect Bola Tinubu.

A three-man panel of the court, led by Justice Jamil Tukur, unanimously held that the appeal filed by Owuru and his party, the Hope Democratic Party, amounted to an abuse of the court processes.

Justice Tukur held that the appeal was an invitation for the court to review its earlier decision, which it cannot do.

He said the issues in the appeal had earlier been determined by the court while sitting as an election petition court after the 2019 election, with a judgment given on August 22, 2019.

Justice Tukur stated that the Supreme Court had also heard the case and pronounced it with a judgment given on October 28, 2019.

He held that the case, having been litigated up to the Supreme Court, it was an abuse of the judicial process for Owuru and his party to seek to want to have the matter litigated all over.

Brig.-Gen. Bashir Adewinmbi, (rtd), the Commander of Amotekun in Osun says President Muhammadu Buhari has performed excellently well in tackling insecurity in the country.

Adewinmbi said in an interview on Thursday that the Buhari administration had provided needed support to relevant security agencies to discharge their duties.

According to him, the quantum of security challenges facing Nigeria when Buhari assumed duty in 2015, have greatly reduced.
