A coalition of Niger Delta militants has warned President Muhammadu Buhari over the withdrawal of $1billion from Excess Crude Account to fight Boko Haram insurgency in the North East.
The militants, under the auspices of the Reformed Niger Delta Avengers warned that they “will not take this but resist it with our might.”
In an open letter to Buhari, they described the plan to withdraw the $1bn as wicked and insensitive.
The letter signed by self-styled, Major General Johnmark Ezonbi, said the federal government disregarded the peace accord signed with the people of the Niger Delta.
The RNDA also warned the government not to take the present ceasefire agreement for granted.
The letter partly read, “Through the ceasefire, the country is enjoying daily crude oil production of between 2.2 and 2.4million barrels of crude production which amount to billions of naira daily for the Federal Government. It also helped the country to get out of recession. So, the government should not take our patience and silence for granted.
“We want to state categorically that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government is insensitive and practically negating the principles of natural justice by using resources derived from a neglected region to combat insurgency in the North-East in the senseless Boko Haram war to the tune of $1bn from ECA.
“We will not take this but resist with our might. This broad day light robbery against the Niger Delta people will not be accepted by us. We are going to resist this perpetual injustice against our long-neglected people in the region.”
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of planning to be a sole presidential candidate during the 2019 elections.
PDP said for that reason, the All Progressives Congress, APC, was bent on causing trouble in the PDP ahead of 2019.
The National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, told reporters that those who opened an “illegal office” of the party at the Asokoro District of Abuja were being deceived by the ruling party.
The former ruling party however said such plot would fail, adding that its members would not be deceived by the ruling party.
He said, “They are so unsettled that the PDP is progressing and progressing progressively . That is why they are using some people to cause confusion in our party but we have gone beyond that.
“What is more important now is that we are embarking on membership drive to win more members back to the PDP.
“President Buhari wants to be the sole candidate in 2019 ; that’s why they (APC) want to cause crisis in our party.
“We are going to stand as a party and we are going to fiercely contest elections in 2019 . Our doors are open to Nigerians and anyone who is interested in contesting an election in 2019 can come in.
“I can assure you that majority of people still hanging around in the APC are coming back home , the PDP. APC is going to the next election as an empty party.”
He added, “Recall that after our convention, the APC attempted to inject disagreements and rancour among our members, particularly in the South-West, but also failed.”
The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, have reportedly shut out fourteen governors of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in several meetings ahead of the 2019 election.
The governors are angry that they were deliberately not invited to two meetings organised by El-Rufa’i and Amaechi all geared towards the 2019 elections.
According to Daily Trust, the 14 governors are demanding to know why they were left out of consultations, the source said.
Two of the meetings, according to the newspaper, were held in October and December, this year at the Abuja residence of Amaechi, who hosted the meeting together with Governor El-Rufa’i.
The meetings were meant to extract a pledge of allegiance to President Muhammadu Buhari to emerge as APC’s candidate for the 2019 presidential election.
The newspaper reports that the first meeting which took place in October was attended by Governors El-Rufa’i, Yahaya Bello of Kogi, Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano, Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi, Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa and Ibrahim Gaidam of Yobe State.
El-Rufa’i and Amaechi were said to have prevailed on the governors to pledge allegiance to President Buhari in 2019.
According to the report, Amaechi and El-Rufa’i invited another batch of APC governors to the Transport Minister’s Abuja residence.
Those who attended the second meeting were Governors Simon Bako Lalong of Plateau, Mohammed Jibrilla Bindow of Adamawa, Samuel Ortom of Benue and Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi. This meeting took place last Monday, December 18, 2017.
Daily Trust reports there are speculations that Governors Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos, Rauf Aregbesola of Osun, Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo and Godwin Obaseki of Edo State were probably shut out because they are believed to be loyal to APC National Leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, whose loyalty to Buhari in 2019 is not certain.
Also, Governors such as Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun, Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara, Kashim Shettima of Borno, Aminu Masari of Katsina, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo and Owelle Rochas Okorocha of Imo, who are also known to be loyal Buhari supporters, were kept in the dark by El-Rufa’i and Amaechi.
The source noted that these governors are also known to be close to Buhari and that Okorocha has publicly endorsed Buhari for 2019 on several occasions.
The sources said Governors Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara and Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger “were probably left out because they are believed to be close to Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki,” who is thought to nurse presidential ambitions.
Governors Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto and Muhammad Badaru Abubakar were also excluded from the meetings.
The headquarters of the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC), has been engulfed by fire.
The office is located at Olusegun Obasanjo Way, Wuse Zone 7, Abuja.
It was gathered that the fire started at about 6:20 a.m. and the fire service officials arrived late.
At the time of filing this report the cause of the fire is not known.
