Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, on Wednesday opined that it was “all over” for President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain said he hoped both Buhari and Oshiomhole don’t suffer “heart attacks” as a result of the massive defection.
Fani-Kayode said this while reacting to the latest defection that hit the APC.
The Deputy Governor of Kano State, Hafiz Abubakar was reported to have defected from the APC.
Reacting, Fani-Kayode in a tweet wrote: “Congrats to Dep.Governor Hafiz Abubakar of Kano for dumping the Association of Pedophiles and Coprophiliacs (APC) and joining the resistance and the forces of liberation and freedom.Let us hope that by the time all this is all over Buhari and Oshiomole do not have heart attacks.”
Atiku has declared his interest to run for president in 2019. He is currently in the PDP and is working towards becoming the presidential flagbearer of the party.
Speaking to Premiumtimes in an interview on Friday August 3rd, Obasanjo said God will never forgive him if he ever supports Atiku’s presidential bid.
“How can I be on the same side with Atiku? To do what?“If I support Atiku for anything, God will not forgive me. If I do not know, yes. But once I know, Atiku can never enjoy my support. It is not a question of working with or not working with an individual. If you are working for the good of Nigeria, I am working with you. If you are not working for the good of Nigeria it does not matter who you are I am not working with you.
“Most of you do not understand the way I operate,” Mr Obasanjo said. “And I thought your own paper will understand better. I know Atiku very well. And I have mentioned my position with Atiku. My position has not changed,” he said.
On a personal note, he added, “If my children are getting married, he has sent representatives. If his children are getting married, I have sent representatives. That is social. That is not political. But on political ground, my position has not changed. If I support Atiku for a political office other than the one I supported him in the past when I did not know him,” maybe, but not “now that I know him, God will not forgive me.”
Obasanjo and Atiku came into power in 1999 with Atiku serving as his Vice President. They started on a good slate but later fell out after the former President accused Atiku of massive corruption.

Basketball star Lebron James, who briefly put the Internet on fire with his recent choice to depart the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Los Angeles Lakers, has built a new public school in his home town and it will be completely free.
I Promise School built in Akron, Ohio, opened on Monday July 30th. The school will provide everything for free, including:
Free bicycle and helmet
Free transportation within 2 miles
Free breakfast, lunch, and snacks
Free pantry for families
Job placement services for parents
Guaranteed tuition to the University of Akron for every student who graduates.
The public school is considered the first of its kind and will serve low-income and at-risk students in Lebron’s hometown.
Lebron has done a lot to give back to his community but the I Promise School will be King James’ crown jewel. The 240-person population of third- and fourth-graders is made up of students “identified by Akron Public Schools as behind in critical academic areas and other factors.”
James insisted that his institution be a public school, as he could relate to the pitfalls that Akron youth must face.
The school boasts a 20-to-1 student-teacher ratio, year-round programming and a 9-to-5 school day to keep its children engaged.
Lebron’s kind act has earned him the praise of many, including that of Michelle Obama.
Reacting to the opening of the school, Michelle wrote: “@BarackObama and I are so proud of @KingJames and @IPROMISESchool. Kids in Akron and across the US are lucky to have you as a role model on and off the court. Keep using your platform for good and giving our kids a chance to shoot for the stars. ?? #ReachHigher #BetterMakeRoom”
Proud of still maintaining majority with 53 senators, the All Progressives Congress (APC) caucus rose from a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday and ordered defecting Senate President Bukola Saraki to resign.
The National Chairman of APC, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, called for Saraki’s resignation when he emerged from a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Oshiomhole told State House correspondents in Abuja that the Senate President should as “a matter of honour leave the crown in the house that the crown belongs”.
Some senators elected on the platform of the APC led by the Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan were also at the meeting held with the President Buhari at the Presidential Villa.
“But whatever is the reason, we can decamp from the party but we can’t decamp from Nigeria.
“The only thing is that there are other consequential issues that every man or woman of honour, who had taken such decisions would be expected to follow through.
“I mean you should not collect a crown that belongs to a family and wear it on behalf of the family if for your personal reasons which he has enumerated that he has gone to another family. It is just a matter of honour to leave the crown in the house that the crown belongs to,” Oshiomhole said.
He maintains that the ruling party still has the largest party in the Senate.
“As it stands even now, APC is still the largest party in the Senate, we have 53 senators, that is much more than PDP has, or APGA has.
“I have been consistent with that during the campaign, I have been consistent since I was sworn in. I have made the points in my acceptance speech, I have emphasised this when I met with the Senate caucus and speech.
I have emphasised this when I met with the House of Representatives caucus, that we are ready to do justice to anyone who is genuinely aggrieved and whose grievances are such that we can deal with them provided we enthrone justice, fairness and all sides purge themselves of any arrogance.
“To the best of my knowledge, all senators, house of reps members were happy, the ones that are not negotiable, there is nothing we can do about it.”
Oshiomhole also claimed that the defection is not surprising. According to him, the defectors had previously given clear signs before now.
“Nobody in the APC will be surprised about the development, in fact, they have stayed a little bit longer than we thought.
Last week the Kwara has State Governor was alluded to have said he was leaving but he didn’t say when.
“So, we are not surprised at all.”
Saraki defected to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday he party he and some of his supporters, including five governors left in 2014.
He said his return to the party after winning the senate president’s seat on the platform of APC, according to him was to enjoy a greater sense of belonging and in the interest of a greater number of Nigerians.
Similar to what happened in 2014, Saraki has left APC with governors of Kwara, Sokoto and Benue state for now also with his protégé APC Spokesperson Bolaji Abdullahi.
Revealing this in a statement on Wednesday, Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said:
“President Muhammadu Buhari begins a 10 working days holiday from August 3, 2018.
“In compliance with Section 145 (1) of the 1999 Constitution, a letter has been transmitted to the President of the Senate, and the Speaker, House of Representatives to that effect.
“While the President is on vacation, the Vice President will be in acting capacity as President.
“President Buhari will be in London for the holiday.”
He also said the link between Igbo nation and Nigeria’s presidency is President Muhammadu Buhari.
He then called on has therefore called on people of the nation’s south-east to support the president’s re-election or have their hope of leading the nation dashed.
