Exclusive: Fresh Plots To Impeach PMB, Inaugurate Osinbajo As President Revealed 




Ghenga Daniel Point News

Less than three weeks after President Muhammadu Buhari saw through an attempt to embarrass him by members of the House of Representatives and declined their summons, facts have emerged that there’s a fresh plot to impeach the President by a new set of legislators.

The President, about three weeks ago, declined to honour a summon by the House of Representatives over a purported need to hear from him on the security situation in the country as it was discovered that there was a ploy by opposition members of the House to boo the President as the first step towards galvanising other members towards moving for his impeachment.

The fresh plot, this time, has been hatched at the Red Chamber of the National Assembly and is being spearheaded by a former Governor from the Northeast who is curently a serving senator.

The aim of the plot according to reliable sources, is to either have the President removed or heat up the polity and cause sustained confusion ahead of the build up to the 2023 elections so that the presidency would be in disarray and lose focus on who to support in the next dispensation.

This is because the chances appear slimmer for a presidential hopeful from the Southwest who is hell bent on succeeding Buhari but is being haunted by his sordid past.

Recall that elder statesman, Mamman Daura had stated earlier this year his personal opinion against zoning the presidency to a particular zone which shut the door against this political godfather from the Southwest.

Our investigations revealed that the former governor from the Northeast is being supported by this powerful political godfather in the Southwest who is known to be eyeing the presidency for long.

The plan is to push forward the candidacy of the political godfather who has seen that he does not stand a chance in the current calculation and have him pair up with the former governor from the Northeast as his running mate in 2023.

The duo had embarked on a similar plan in 2016 but did not go far as President Buhari’ s return to the country cancelled that plan.

Part of the 2016 plan was hatched when President Buhari was admitted at a hospital in the United Kingdom and the then Northeast Governor used his state resources to lobby the political godfather to put in a word for him so he would be picked as vice president to Yemi Osinbajo incase President Buhari fails to make it out of the hospital.

The former governor had even gone to the extent of mobilising  lawmakers to recreate a different version of the doctrine of necessity to enable the Vice President take over while he is named as Vice President.

Though that plan failed, our investigations have revealed that the former governor hasn’t given up and is working round the clock using the resources he made while serving as governor to oil the plot.

As the first step towards the realization of this plan, the former governor caused his political protege, who took over from him as governor, to rubbish the security architecture in the country and to call for the involvement of foreign mercenaries to fight the Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists operating on the fringes around the Lake Chad region.

This was carefully thought out to make the President and the Service Chiefs appear incapable of handling the security challenges in the country and so as to set citizens up against them.

The former governor as a follow up to the plot, granted an interview calling for the removal of the Service Chiefs and capped his insolence to the President by remarking that Buhari is no God.

Since the initial plan to use the House of Representatives had failed, the current plan is being hatched from the Senate because of the access the former governor has with his colleagues in the Red Chamber where he has deployed his enormous resources to recruit senators especially those of PDP extraction to impeach the President.

Our sources have it that moves to reach out to the House of Representatives with the plot hit a brick wall and not been successful as the leadership of the House turned down an offer of financial inducement to execute the plan.

A reliable source, has it that the Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila rejected the $1m offer made to him to mobilise the House and bluntly told those that approached him to allow Buhari complete his second term.

It was at this stage that the former Governor and his godfather resolved to concentrate on the Senate for now.

The current plan were to approach Senate President Ahmed Lawan as it was agreed that Lawan would be more agreeable to the plot since he was partly helped to the Senate Presidency by the Southwest political godfather and owes him allegiance.

About six senators mainly from the opposition party have been recruited and have been meeting to fine tune the plan.

They include a Senator from the Northcentral, another from the Southeast and another from the Southwest.

The Senator from the Northcentral who is also a former Governor has been promised the juicy position of FCT Minister if the plot succeeds, in the same manner Bala Mohammed was rewarded by then President Goodluck Jonathan for his support and helping to make him realise the presidency.

While the other two are to be adequately compensated if the plan pulls through.

The choice of the PDP Senators leading the plot is also to make this plot look like an opposition response to the insecurity situation across the country and to cover up the real actors behind the plot.

Our correspondent also found out that the former governor has also recruited some columnist to defend his aggression against the President and make his outbursts look like mere criticism of government policies while the plot  is being executed.

Attempts by our correspondent to speak with the former governor failed as he was not responding to calls.

A reliable source in the Senate when contacted however said ‘we have heard something like that,” when contacted.

Attempts to reach the Speaker of the House  of Representatives were also not successful.

Buhari Claims #EndSARS Protesters Wanted to ‘Remove’ Him




Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday claimed the #EndSARS protests against police brutality that took place in the country last October were aimed at ousting him from office.

Buhari blamed the protests on the dwindling inflow of foreign direct investment to the country.

He insisted that Nigeria’s army of young people that participated in the protests have made it unattractive to investors.

The President stated this Thursday in an exclusive interview on ‘Good Morning Show’ on ARISE News Channel, a broadcast arm of THISDAY.

Obasanjo Slams Agitators of Secession




Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has condemned agitators of disintegration of the country saying that that it will be “almost idiotic” for Nigeria to disintegrate at a time like this when Africa is trying to reintegrate for political, social, and economic development.

He insisted that the country is better together for all the ethnic groups in the country to remain together as one indivisible nation with fairness and equity and where all Nigerians will feel proud, rather than for each tribe to go its separate ways.

The former Nigerian leader spoke at the luncheon and investiture organised by the Nigerian Institution of Surveyor, Ogun State chapter, held at the premises of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Abeokuta.

The former President called on all agitators for the disintegration of the country to shelve the idea and work for the unity and oneness of the country.

While admitting that the present situation in the country is not palatable, he stressed that calling for the disintegration of the country is not the solution.

He expressed the optimism that, Nigeria will come out stronger from all the challenges currently confronting it if all citizens shelve their personal interests and work together for the unity and progress of the country.

The former president who cited Pakistan, Yugoslavia, and Sudan as countries who have broken away, but are yet to find solutions to their problems, said Nigerians should blame themselves for the country’s woes rather than blaming God.

“If there is any Nigerian who does not feel apprehensive on the situation of the country, the person is a human being without being human.

“Any Nigerian who is human will be apprehensive, if not frustrated with the present situation in the country. We are apprehensive about security situation, apprehensive about economic situation, apprehensive about our political situation and the drum we are hearing is that of disintegration of the country.

“I am a strong believer of one Nigeria, but not one Nigeria at any cost, but one Nigeria where every Nigerian can feel proud that he or she has a stake in this country.

“No Nigerian is born a slave in this country. No Nigerian is born to be oppressed in this country and those of us that have shared part of our blood and sweat for this country, we did that because we wanted a country that every Nigerian can claim as his or her own.

“One thing that gives us strength is our diversity. If all that we have is Republic of Oduduwa for those who said so, their position is understandable. If that is all we have, members of that country will be diminished compared to be a citizen of Nigeria. Citizens of Oduduwa Republic or any other republic from Nigeria will be diminished compared to citizens of Nigeria.

“In this age and time that we are talking about the reintegration of Africa for economic development, disintegration of any country will be almost idiotic if we have Igboland as an independent country, Yorubaland an independent country and Fulani/Hausaland an independent country.

“And as a friend of mine in the military used to say then, what will become of the over 300 minorities – the Jukuns, the Gbasamas? Where will they belong? The only reason they can raise up their heads is because they belong to Nigeria. Are we thinking of them or are we are just being selfish? It doesn’t matter what we do, we will still be neighbours.

“We had seen it before, India was broken into India and Pakistan, they are still at war till today. Yugoslavia was broken into how many countries, they haven’t sorted it till today. Sudan was broken into Sudan and South Sudan, I don’t believe South Sudan is better for it and that is the truth.

“I believe it will cost us less to work for our unity, there are many things wrong, but those things are correctable if we make efforts to correct them and hold us together than what it will cost us to break up and be perpetually at war and all our money will be spent in building an army. I know what an army contains, I know what it means to keep an army, an army that may not be productive, let us think about it”, Obasanjo stated.

Speaking on the importance of survey to national development, Obasanjo said, the entire country should be surveyed to achieve economic development and transformation.

He, therefore, charged the national body of the Nigerian Institution of Surveyors to draft a proposal on the national survey of the country to the Federal Government.

“When I was the president of the country, the project of surveying the entire country began, but it got stuck and I don’t know where the project is now”, Obasanjo noted.

Continue Using Twitter – NASS Joint Minority Caucus Urges Nigerians




The Joint Minority Caucus of the Senate and the House of Representatives has met over the ban on Twitter by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government and has restated its condemnation of the embargo as draconian and unacceptable.

This position was contained in a communique signed by Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe the Minority Leader of the Senate) and Hon. Ndudi Elumelu the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives.

In the statement, the Joint Minority Caucus also dismissed threats by the APC-led government to arrest and prosecute Nigerians using Twitter and calls on Nigerians to go ahead and use their Twitter as they would not be contravening any law in Nigeria or any international statute.

The Joint Minority Caucus recognized the provisions of Articles 19 and 20 of the United Nations Charter on Fundamental Human Rights, which Nigeria is a signatory to, as well as provisions of Sections 39 and 36 (12) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), and notes that by these provisions no one will be violating any law for using Twitter in Nigeria.

As lawmakers, the Joint Caucus said it is pained by the anguish Nigerians, especially the youths, who find the use of Twitter as a means of livelihood and genuine social interaction, are passing through just because the APC-led Federal Government feels slighted that an individual’s post, was deleted by Twitter for ethic violation.

The joint caucus, therefore, called on Nigerians to use various opportunities offered by technology and continue making use of Twitter since such does not violate any law in our country.

“It is agonizing that Nigeria and Nigerians have been losing billions of naira on daily basis since the ban on Twitter. This is completely unacceptable as it is worsening the already biting economic hardship and frightening unemployment level in the country.

“Moreover, the ban on Twitter in Nigeria appears to be in favour of criminal and terrorist elements, whose activities fester in an environment of suppressed information flow.

“The Joint Minority Caucus sympathizes with the organized private sector, manufacturing and service providing companies, small and medium enterprises, online business owners and other hardworking entrepreneurs across the country, whose genuine business and means of livelihood have been crippled by the unwarranted ban on Twitter by the APC federal government,” the statement partly reads.

The caucus also identified with our students, research-based organization, media houses, the organized civil society, faith-based organizations, community groups among others, whose information-based activities have been violently disrupted by the ban.

In the same vein, the Joint Caucus sympathized with regional, states, local government as well as members of the international community, whose genuine and constructive activities have been crippled by the prohibition of twitter in Nigeria

It also identified with traditional rulers, who have even found Twitter as a means of communicating with the constituents, especially in this era of insecurity in the country.

The Joint Caucus vehemently berated the APC-led government for abandoning its duty of addressing the serious economic and security problems confronting our nation to rather focus on dissipating energy victimizing Nigerians over their disagreement with Twitter for deleting a post by an individual.

The Caucus counseled the Federal Government to swallow its pride, accept its misdoing and go and settle whatever issue it has with Twitter instead of this resort to inflicting pains on Nigerians.
