… political hate speeches take control
… bullion van allegations
…court threats reign supreme
The manifestations of political dislocations, court threats and unbridled political hate speeches in the last one week reigned supreme in Nigeria’s political landscape.
TheNewsGuru.com, (TNG) in this news analysis will take a close look at the dangerous red signals engulfing Nigeria and how Nigeria while searching for credible leadership may end up producing a Supreme Court president in 2023.
The signals are clear and the APC led government may properly help to fan the embers of destruction to retain power in 2023 despite the stark nakedness of poverty staring the middle class each day they woke up in the morning.
First bus stop in this analysis is the oldest political party in Nigeria today, the PDP that has chosen to carry an elephant on its head at the same time searching for crickets to feed its grand children while great grand fathers dance ‘buga’.
In the next 24hours Nigerians will know whether the party will even campaign as the feelers from the grandfather party are not palatable.
THE PDP CHILDREN V THE GRANDFATHERS:
Dr Iyorchia Ayu and his men made the greatest challenge when they tagged Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, Seyi Makinde, Okezie Ikpeazu and the rest children, people even suggested that as serving governors they should be expelled from the party.
This is happening days before NEC meeting primarily designed to help cool tempers is about to to play chess game as the aggrieved parties are still boiling after torn agreements.
Ayu on the other hand poured kerosene, pms, aviation fuel and lit the bomb after the presidential primaries of PDP for simply hailing a serving Governor from the North West as the hero of the convention.
Wike and the other grandchildren decided to wage a war against the grand fathers who think they own the party and grand children cannot dictate for them even if they pour faeces on their faces.
The matter is still snowballing and it may just eventually send PDP to the graveyard.
Feelers squeezed out from an unwilling top notcher of the party by TNG clearly point out that “even if Ayu resigns the crisis will still continue because the next person that will take over is from the north.
“There are two deputy chairmen, one from the north and the other one is from the south and if you ask Ayu to go because from all indications is like Atiku wants him to remain, another man from the north takes over.
“So the bottom line is that Ayu and his men should pack and go because if they continue they will conveniently midwife PDP into another failure in 2023.
“It’s sad because Atiku is carrying an elephant on his head at the same time searching for crickets to roast to give to his children.
“By the time the elephant falls from his head while he’s busy searching for crickets then it’s all over for PDP for good.
COURT CASES HANGING ON PDP:
From all indications, by the time campaigns commence and the grand fathers and the grand children start throwing tornadoes more court cases will become wrapper which the party will be adorning on a daily cases.
“What does it take to call the children as christened by Ayu to order and they’re are not even looking at the court cases that are flying from different corners which simply connotes all is not well with PDP.
“By tomorrow (Wednesday-Thursday) NEC will meet and if the matter is not adequately handled it will spell doom for the party.
THE MYSTERY MAN CASE:
The mystery man case was the first to emerge and the accusation finger was pointed at Wike who later denied speculations that he was not behind it but the presidential candidate of PDP, Atiku.
Then suddenly from no where a Sunday Ndukwe claimed the suit was his own.
FHC/ABJ/CS/782/2022, Wike and a chieftain of the PDP, Newgent Ekamon, were listed as plaintiffs. In the originating summons, the PDP was said to be listed as the first respondent while the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was the second respondent. Tambuwal and Atiku were listed as the third and fourth respondents respectively.
Ekamon asked the court to determine eight points including whether the transfer of Tambuwal’s votes to Atiku in the primary was illegal and void.
He said he decided to take Atiku and PDP to court for gross violation of the party’s constitution on zoning.
The erstwhile presidential aspirant argued that PDP had over the years enshrined zoning in its constitution and observed the same for equity and justice but expressed shock that the party for no justifiable reasons decided to jettison zoning in choosing its presidential flag bearer for 2023.
The former Chief of Staff to Abia State governor said he had before the primaries gone to court to challenge the refusal of the party to zone its presidential ticket to the South.
Another suit by a former Rivers Commissioner, Chukwuma Chinye who was also Principal Secretary to former Chairman of PDP last week reared its head still on PDP and this time he is asking the courts through his lawyer, P .T. Akon to seek among others:
“A declaration that the removal and replacement of Prince Uche Secondus then National Chairman and his replacement by Elder Yemi Akinwumi, was illegal and breach of all constitutional provisions of the party.
“Deputy National Chairman and his exclusion and ousting from office for lawful reason or any just cause and without regards to the provisions of
Constitution of the 1st Defendant is unlawful, unconstitutional and of no effect whatsoever.
“A Declaration that in the absence and deliberate exclusion of Prince Uche
Secondus, the then National Chairman from presiding over the conduct of holding of the National Convention and on the 30th and 31st day of October, 2021, when the National Convention was held, the said National
Convention, the outcome and all matters, resolutions, decisions and steps
including the election/adoption of the 2nd and 20th Defendants as National Chairman and Members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the 1st Defendant is null and void and of no effect whatsoever by reason of it being improperly constituted.
“An Order setting aside the proceedings of the National Convention of Defendant that held on the 30th and 31st day of October, 2021 including
resolutions, steps taken, including the election/adoption of the 2nd Defendants as National Chairman and Members of the National Working
Committee as same was not properly constituted and consequently null a
and of no effect.
The above case is fresh and is threatening the whole foundation of PDP hours to NEC that may tear apart PDP if Atiku does not drop the elephant from his head.
To be on the safer side, PDP as a matter of urgency needs to factor a way to quickly sort out these cases because some may go to Supreme Court and this could run into the elections next year.
SUPREME COURT PRESIDENT LOADING:
The APC, Labour Party and the PDP so far last and this week had a field day distributing hate speeches across Nigeria from one event to the other.
Leading the pack is the ruling APC that has a powerful and tested media men that can apply all manners of media mechanism to get desired results.
The Labour Party was given a label of allegedly sourcing monies from abroad and the LP replied that they do not have bullion van experience with which to share money.
The PDP from the blues hammered their presidential candidate that he was a paper weight politician after they(PDP) were declared a dead party.
Too many unprintable graffiti that space cannot even contain to start taking all the hate speeches being disseminated in the name of politics.
With the plethora of hate speeches on a daily basis even before campaigns formally starts and after elections next year Nigerians should not be surprised if a Supreme Court president does emerge, after all, this APC administration has produced a Supreme Court governor.
