What you missed about Buhari visit to Lagos before London trip

HerePresident Buhari yesterday , Wednesday 24th April 2019 made his second working visit to Lagos State in the space of one year where he came to commission a couple of projects by the out-going governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.

 

In the president’s speech, he said, ‘I am delighted to be here today to commission three key projects that reflect the drive and success of our Administration as we pursue policies and programmes that will positively impact on our citizens;.

2. The new Oshodi Transport Interchange; the Mass Transit Medium and High capacity public buses and the reconstructed Murtala Mohammed International Airport Road by Lagos State Government clearly demonstrate the need to continue to provide high impact projects for the development of infrastructure and opportunities for job creation at all levels.

3. Just as this transport interchange with three different terminals is going to change the face of public transportation, the mass transit buses totaling 820 will move the people of Lagos State in a more comfortable and more efficient manner.

4. These projects by Lagos State are perfectly aligned with the efforts of the Federal Government to improve the country’s infrastructure especially in the transport sector.

5. To compliment the Oshodi transport Interchange, the Federal Government has recently approved the reconstruction of the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway up to Oworonshoki and Old-Toll gate which was last attended to, 40 years ago.

6. We have recently commissioned the new International Airport Terminals in Port Harcourt and Abuja as well as the rail lines from Abuja to Kaduna. The Lagos to Ibadan rail line is under construction. Our government will continue to prioritise high impact infrastructure which will vastly improve the lives of our people.

Excellency, Ladies and Gentlemen,

7. This is my second working visit to Lagos state within a span of one year. I was also here in February to solicit for your votes. I thank you for supporting me. Earlier this morning, I commissioned Ayinke House at the Institute of Maternal & Child Health and also the Lagos Theatre in Oregun.

8. Your Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has performed satisfactorily and we should all commend him for his contributions to the growth and development of Lagos State.

9. I want to once again thank all the people of Lagos State for their support for our government and our party.

10. It is therefore with great pleasure that I commission the new Oshodi Transport Interchange, the Mass Transit Buses and the Murtala Mohammed International Airport road.

Thank you and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Image result for Oluwatobi IlelolawaNews spreads days ago that Fuji Music Legend, King Wasiu Ayinde Mashal, popularly known as K1 De Ultimate has thrown his weight behind Oluwatobi Ilelolawa to sponsor his education.
In what looks like a divine arrangement, Oluwatobi Ilelolawa, the 12 year-old Primary Six pupil, who sketched President Muhammadu Buhari’s portrait with pen (Biro) without alteration few days ago received accolades from the Fuji Music King.
Less than an hour after   THISDAY Newspapers’ Brands and Marketing Editor, Raheem Akingbolu published the story of the boy on his Facebook page, K1, through his publicist, Kunle Rasheed, reached out to the writer. K1, the father of modern Fuji Music said he was touched by the story of the boy and offered  to sponsor his post-primary education to the university level.
K1 described the boy as a raw talent that must  be guided, supported and not allowed to waste.
“I was touched when the story was brought to my notice and I see it as one of those things one can do to impact the society.  Education is key to success and who knows the boy we are talking about may be a governor or President in the making. He may become another Ben Enwonwu, Bruce Onobrakepya, Wole Soyinka or an international Artist of repute in the future. If the society fails to give him the needed support now, posterity will not forgive us. This is the time to lift a hand and groom a talent for posterity.”
Meanwhile, arrangements are being made  to introduce the promising artist  to his new benefactor and perfect ways through which his mentor-ship and sponsorship would  be handled.

“We campaign for them to vote for Buhari, but they refused and voted for Atiku. They cannot come here to do business again. They must follow us to vote whoever we ask them to vote for. This is just a sample for them, if they ever vote for PDP again, that will be their end”, the hoodlums threatened,” the hoodlums were heared chorusing.

Musa Congratulates Buhari On His Re-election As President

What Buhari, Tinubu, APC must know before Saturday’s presidential election – Fani-Kayode

It has been gathered that former Aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has told President Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its national leader, Bola Tinubu, to bear in mind that Nigerians have rejected them.

He said this ahead of Saturday’s presidential election.

Buhari of the ruling APC, will slug it out with Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate.

The former presidential spokesman advised APC and its leaders not to be shocked by the outcome, insisting that they had failed the people.

In an article on Tuesday, titled “Obasanjo’s expired milk and a slave dealer called Bola Tinubu”, he recalled former president Olusegun Obasanjo’s comment that “if we expose those in Buhari’s government they will not only go to jail but they will also go to hell”.

Fani-Kayode wrote: “I have no doubt that this is true. The hottest place in hell has been reserved for Buhari and his political associates who I can best describe as a congregation of incorrigible crooks and scammers and a lawless congress of sadistic and irredeemable miscreants and baboons. By God’s grace, when the time comes, they will enter into the burning flames of hell head-first.

“Given the fact that their candidate faces imminent defeat and a massive disgrace in the presidential election in a few days time, they would do well to leave Obasanjo and Jonathan alone and concentrate their efforts on asking God for forgiveness for their many atrocities and redeeming themselves before the Nigerian people.”

Read part of the statement below

“The All Progressives Congress (APC) regrets Monday’s premeditated attacks sponsored by Governor Ibikunle Amosun on President Muhammadu Buhari and other senior party leaders at the venue of the presidential campaign rally in Ogun State.

This is one act of indiscipline too many. The APC will not condone acts of indiscipline, indiscretion and anti-party activities from any party member no matter how highly placed. The party will review this gross misconduct of deliberately positioning thugs to attack and embarrass the President and the party’s leadership.

The party will take a decision on this matter immediately after the elections. It must be stated that party supremacy and discipline according to our constitution are not matters of choice but binding principles which must be adhered to by all party members.

Post primaries, the decision of the National Working Committee to uphold the wishes of party members is unbendable. Therefore, whatever means being presently deployed by persons intending to undermine the wishes of the people for personal gains will not be tolerated.

We urge our teeming party supporters and members not to be disturbed by Monday’s condemnable incident. We urge all to continue trooping out en-masse for our remaining campaigns and vote massively for all and only APC candidates in the forthcoming general elections,“ it said.
