PDP To Buhari: Respect our constitution…There’s more to late MKO Abiola’s honour

PDP-BUHARI-660x381

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to respect the laws of the country if he truly wants to honour the late MKO Abiola.

The party made the demand in a statement on Wednesday by their National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan.

They issued the statement hours after the President announced June 12 as Nigeria’s new Democracy Day, to honour Abiola – the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 Presidential Election.

President Buhari, who also conferred a posthumous GCFR title on the late businessman and philanthropist, explained that June 12 would replace May 29 because it is more symbolic.

But the opposition PDP believes there is more to the President’s announcement than honouring Abiola, claiming it might not be distanced from political reasons.

Amid the party’s allegations of prosecution of perceived political opponents, they said, “If President Buhari genuinely wants to honour Chief Abiola, he should do so by ending all anti-democratic proclivities of his administration and allow for the rule of law and respect for our constitution.”

They further alleged that the President’s action smacks of hypocrisy and political desperation ahead of the presidential election in 2019.

The PDP accused President Buhari of seeking to use the name and person of Abiola to gain a political capital, insisting that his action was not out of genuine reverence and recognition for the late philanthropist.

They claimed that while serving in the military administration of General Sani Abacha during the travails of Abiola, President Buhari did not associate either by words or actions with the late winner of the June 12 election.

The party also purported that history did not record the President as sympathetic to the Abiola family when his wife, Kudirat, was murdered.

“It is, therefore, a sign of political desperation for President Buhari to seek to use Chief Abiola’s name as a tool to sway Nigerians in less than twelve months to an election where he, (President Buhari) is seeking a second term.

“It is also shocking that the respectable grave of Abiola can be dishonoured by granting a posthumous award on him along with someone who denounced the June 12 mandate and preferred the company of his (Abiola’s) traducers,” the party alleged.

2019 according to Ifa oracle – Traditional religion adherents

Published

on

Traditional religion adherents under the umbrella of Ancient Religion Societies of African Descendants International Council (ARSADIC), have urged Nigerians to shun calamitous predictions by groups and individuals who have predicted that Nigeria will break up, doomed or ceased to exist after the 2019 general elections.



They made this known on Wednesday while revealing some of the messages from Ifa (divination), to Nigeria ahead of the 2019 general elections during the second annual general meeting and peace prayer service for Nigeria and Diaspora organised by ARSADIC at Oba Okunade Sijuwade Memorial Hall, Oke Mogun, Ile Ife, Osun State.

According to reports, ARSADIC which is a conglomerate of traditional religion associations across Nigeria and in the Diaspora is made up of organisations such as Traditional Religion Worshippers Association of Nigeria (TRAWSO) Oyo and Osun state chapters, International Council for Ifa religion, International Congress for Orisa Tradition and Culture and Orisa Worshippers Union among others.

 ARSADIC President, Dr. Sola Olalekan Atanda while revealing some of the messages from Ifa to Nigeria, said contrary to insinuations that Nigeria may disintegrate after the 2019 general elections, “Nigeria will not disintegrate, it was revealed that we should continue to be prayerful ahead of the general elections in 2019”.

ARSARDIC President while speaking said, “A God fearing person that believes in God must be optimistic, to be pessimistic is very dangerous, pessimism kill ambition. If you don’t have ambition, you may not have achievement. God is a great God, God will not destroy his handwork, we are God fearing people in Nigeria. A lot of people worship God in Nigeria, Christians, Muslims and traditional religion adherents, we all worship God. So, how can we now say that Nigeria will be doomed in 2019? No.

“We see prosperity and that is why we always consult God, that is why we had a divination in September this year, to ask God what we can do, what should be done to make Nigeria to continue to be giant of Africa, to give good life to our President, Muhammdu Buhari and his team.
