Tinubu tamed, PDP regroups, Buhari baffled… and other takes from Tuesday Thriller

It was a development foretold but it was equally an eloquent testimony to the veracity of that ageless axiom: history has a way of repeating itself.

Before appraising the emergence of Abubakar Bukola Saraki as senate president and the crowning of Yakubu Dogara as speaker of the house of representatives, you have to rewind to early June 2011. The then ruling PDP had zoned the speakership to the south-west.

BAN ON AIT FOR COVERAGE OF PRESIDENT ELECT GENERAL BUHARI'S ACTIVITIES:  Francis Erhuen, just like I have noticed, noticed the hypocrisy of PDP on Buhari decision on AIT....
When I read the story by PDP published on online premium Times on April 28, 2015 titled: AIT BAN DANGEROUS FOR DEMOCRACY—PDP, I was wondering if some people listen to themselves whenever they talk and could just forget recent past so soon.

2015: Buhari upbeat about defeating Jonathan if INEC conducts credible election

Former Head of State and a frontrunner for the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential ticket, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), has expressed confidence in defeating President Goodluck Jonathan in next year’s election if only the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) would make the election free and fair. He however added that his emergence would also depend on the choice of Nigerians.

The presidential aspirant, who also maintained that he is qualified to contest, spoke in an interview with Sunday Sun where he insisted that he had won past presidential elections he participated in and blamed his seeming defeats on the way the elections were conducted, saying he has been getting it right.

His words, “For example, look at what happened in the Supreme Court in 2007. There were three justices of the Supreme Court who presided over the appeal from the Court of Appeal. And the justices, three of them, said there should be another election because the election was not conducted according to law. Three justices said well, there were flaws in the election, but all the same, the ruling party has won. And then, the Chief Justice, decided to cast his vote with the three justices that said that yes, there were flaws, but all the same, the ruling party could have won. So, if the Supreme Court justices can be split, that means the election was controversial.

“We gave the evidence and the decision of the three justices that annulled the election arose from the facts. We collated them from the field and got them. That shows the contradiction with the Electoral Act. And that was why they annulled the election. The justices were led by retired Justice Oguntande; himself and the previous Chief Justice, Muktar, and one justice from Delta State,” he said.

Reacting to calls for him to step down for a much younger aspirant, Buhari referred to the Constitution and the Electoral Act which did not put an age limit for anybody seeking elective office even when they stipulated that such a person must be 18 years and above.

However, he jokingly told those insisting that he steps down for a younger person to go ahead and vote for whoever they consider to belong to the younger generation.

The Governor in reacting to the visit to Obasanjo by five governors of the Party said the visit was unwarranted, unnecessary and uncalled for, stated that “nobody should be treated as being bigger than the party.”

Governor Fayose made his stance known to journalists in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital on Friday through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, advised the PDP to stop condoning indiscipline.

He called on the party’s leadership to set up a panel to probe Obasanjo for anti-party activities and for castigating President Goodluck Jonathan on many occasions in recent times as this would dissuade other members from emulating him.

According to him, Obasanjo does not appreciate and deserves no respect, adding that, “no amount of mudslinging from him will stop President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election.”
