Prince Adewole Adebayo, the Social Democratic Party SDP standard bearer in the 2023 general elections said there is nothing mystical about Nigeria and her leadership except that Nigerian leadership have not allowed the fear of God to dwell in it. He said the continuous spate of insecurity in the country showed the insensitive nature of the country’s leadership.

 

The presidential hopeful was bearing his mind yesterday when he, his running mate, party executives and supporters visited the president of Christain Association of Nigeria, CAN, Reverend Samson Ayokunle over insecurity in the land, among other national issues.

 

The Federal Ministry of Education few days ago ordered the immediate closure of the Federal Government College, Kwali, in the federal capital territory (FCT) over security threats.

Security breach of security in communities around the school is attributed for the closure.

For the Prince of Ondo Kingdom, “Before the schools were shut down, the first thing that was shut down was the presidency. The presidency has been shut down for the past seven years. The government has shut itself down. If we are not careful, the government will be the bandits and the bandits will be arresting the government. We need to be serious and the do the work. We need our people in security to pay attention, we need the president to protect us and be the Commander in Chief”.

He said until there is honest and purposeful leadership ,the country might just still continue grappling with almost the challenges it is presently facing, adding that only the person with capacity and capability can bring the country out of the woods. ” All the problems the latest of which is banditry, our debt servicing is bigger than our income is all arising from the deficit of our dishonesty that we are not honest people, that when we are given authority to exercise, we don’t do it honestly. If we change our ways, God’s blessing will be upon us. There is no mystery about leadership in Nigeria. It is just that the right leader must come with the right heart, with the right people”, he stated.

For Reverend Ayokunle, there is need to elect the right leader who will make Nigeria work better.
“There is need to elect the right person who will make Nigeria work better and transform its fortunes for the benefit of all. We need as many people as God has touched to contest for the presidency so that people have ample opportunities to chose from”.

… assures all of Victory at the Polls Come 2023

A chieftain in the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Segun Adewale aka Aeroland, has clinched the ticket in the just concluded primaries to bear the flag of the PDP for the Lagos West Senatorial Seat in the coming elections. The elated philanthropist and politician in his victory and appreciation speech, laid emphasis on the need for all members and well-wishers of the Party to rally round and ensure victory at the general election come 2023.

The speech reads;

Hi, My name is Segun Adewale, people call me ‘Aeroland’. I just won the Lagos West Senatorial District’s Peoples’ Democratic Party primaries.

 

I would like to first and foremost appreciate the National Working Committee of our great party which has selected, recruited and deployed professionals to conduct the just concluded Senatorial Primaries in Lagos State. I would also like to appreciate the delegates for the enormous privilege and honor reposed in me by conducting themselves well and casting their votes diligently, you have my utmost respect.

I’m grateful to the leaders of our Party, who found me worthy to be presented to the delegates after a thorough screening exercise.

We have come a long way in choosing and putting our best foot forward in this race. Our focus has always been people-driven, our goal and objective are to serve with dignity and ensure better living for the common man. These I have always shown in my character and deeds in times past and won’t stop now.

According to Napoleon Hill, ” Victory is always possible for the person who refuses to stop fighting”. It is a known fact that I have contested the seat of the Senate twice before now and I am doing so again. I have learned my lessons and believe it is high time we win the seat back for the people.

The job has just begun and this time we will do a lot of things differently and by God’s grace at the polls we will obtain victory, not just for me or the Party, but for all residents of Lagos West Senatorial District who yearn for a wind of change daily.

I want all party members to know that this victory at the primaries , is a victory for all. This simply implies that the challenges ahead will be overcome if we continue to stand united.

The battle is half won and there is still a lot of work to be done. Let’s keep up the enthusiasm, encourage more people to get their PVCs and ensure we all come out en mass to support Aeroland and in general, all PDP candidates come year 2023.

No victor… No vanquished

Thank you and God bless.

SEN EMMANUEL BWACHA’S CAMP IS IN DISARRAY AFTER A LEAKED DOCUMENT INDICATES HIS INVESTIGATION BY FINANCIAL CRIMES AGENCY

Published

The political camp of Sen Emmanuel Bwacha representing Taraba South at the red chambers is currently witnessing a serious crisis, after a leaked document indicates that his finances are under scrutiny by both anti-graft and financial regulations agencies, after a query-run investigation on his finances by a special squad raised between these agencies to put a searchlight on Politically Exposed Persons (PEP). This special monitoring squad has come to understand that there are transactions of Sen Bwacha, his companies, and his cronies which have crossed the redlines of financial regulations, into hundreds of billions of naira.

This financial investigation bombshell is coming on the heals of a court case already instituted by Sen Bwacha’s former Party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), over the Senator’s decamping to the All Progressives Congress (APC), apparently seeking a gubernatorial nomination in Taraba State. The Suit No. FHC/JAL/CS/9/2022 is instituted in the Federal High Court, Jalingo Judicial Division, with the PDP as Plaintiff, while four others are mentioned as the Defendants. The four defendants are: Sen Emmanuel Bwacha, the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and the President of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The core of the Suit is that the PDP is seeking the determination of the honourable Court, in the provision of Section 68(1)(g) and (20) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (As Amended), whether Sen Emmanual Bwacha should be compelled to vacate his seat, as the Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, representing Taraba South Senatorial District.

PDP seems to be premising its case on the fact that the courts have recently been deciding these type of cases against the defectors, on the grounds that votes garnered during elections belong to the Party, but not to the contesting individual, thus making it impossible for individuals to cross platforms with their original victories. In the case of Sen Bwacha, his current battle with the courts is seen as a flexing of muscles pushed forward by Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku, of Taraba State, who is running a political struggle with Sen Emmanuel Bwacha. With Gov Darius in the firm grip of the PDP in Taraba State, it is easy to see how and why the PDP is there in Court with the aim of shattering Sen Bwacha’s ambition.

In the same vein, observers are suggesting that it is the same hands of Gov Darius Ishaku which have provided some of the financial transaction information available to the anti-graft and financial regulatory agencies, which are currently on good report to indict Sen Bwacha of financial recklessness and financial crimes. In the leaked investigation document, Sen Bwacha is linked to some eight operating and active bank accounts, in both corporate and individual names. However, an expert conversant with this particular investigation says that the main document contains more than twenty accounts linked to Sen Bwacha. What has been leaked “seems to be a summary” of the actual document.

According to the leak, four bank accounts are largely the operating arena of Sen Bwacha’s irregular and clandestine financial dealings. Two of the accounts are corporate accounts, resident with Zenith Bank. The third and fourth bank accounts are in the individual name of Emmanuel Bwacha, resident in Polaris Bank, with Account No. 1767700993 and 0071772656 respectively. According to this leaked document, on January 25 this year, Bwacha’s PolarisAaccount No. 1767700993 received a large scale funding of N500 million. Beeds Ent Nigeria Ltd, with Account No. 2096715983 at Zenith Bank made the N500 million funding to Sen Bwacha’s Polaris Bank Account. Initially, Polaris Bank recorded this transaction under a Suspense General Ledger account, which authorities view as a diversionary stunt by Polaris Bank to exonerate itself from complicity in any wrongdoing on this transaction.

Then, two days later, on the 27th of January 2022, Sen Bwacha moved the whole of this N500 million, in two tranches of one hundred million Naira (N100,000,000.00), and four hundred million Naira (N400,000,000.00) from this account to “a ghost account” of his in this same Polaris Bank, with Account No. 0071772656, which investigators see as a Savings Account. Investigators have noticed that this seeming savings account “is not queriable at bank counter level”, so they tag the account as “ghost”, or “structured down”. It is noteworthy that “structured down” accounts are not reachable by external auditors and inspectors. Thus, according to a query on this leaked document, Sen Bwacha, with the active connivance of Polaris Bank, has successfully hidden N500 million from prying eyes. It is from this “ghost” account that Sen Bwacha funds his clandestine activities.

The other two corporate accounts are: Eloheem Properties Development Limited, with Account No. 1015365504 at Zenith Bank, and the Eloheem Suites Limited, a hotel business outfit, with Account No. 1013165470, at the same Zenith Bank. Sen Emmanuel Bwacha and his wife, Deborah Bwacha, are found to be signatories to these accounts. In Particular, Deborah Bwacha is seen to be the chief operating officer to the Eloheem Properties Development Limited account. According to the transactions present on these accounts, investigators believe that these accounts are not run by the businesses registered for them.

According to the leaked document, investigators have alerted security agencies to track and follow certain of these transactions as they seem to be pointing towards “terrorism funding”, which is sometimes passed through money laundering. Investigators have noted that both Terrorism Funding” and “Money Laundering” are serious crimes committed with ill wealth gotten from public treasuries. By this flagging of these bank accounts, it is evident that the scrutiny on Bwacha’s money is going to involve a lot of people as one source confides that there are more than twenty bank accounts belonging to Sen Bwacha that are under investigation.

For instance, the leaked document has also indicated the flagging of about seven bank accounts belonging to Sen Bwacha’s friend and ally, Engr Ahmed Yusuf, popularly known as Gamaliya. Three of Engr Ahmad’s flagged accounts, according to the leaked document, are in Zenith Bank, while two each are in Access Bank and Guarantee Trust Bank. Engr Ahmed Yusuf’s flagged accounts in Zenith Bank include account numbers 5070110338, 10001271** and 54500579*. Those in Access Bank include account numbers 07012808* and 07011619*. Those in Guarantee Trust Bank include account numbers 00456765* and 00456765**. Investigators are querying the fact that Engr Ahmed Yusuf has no less than nine individual accounts in Guarantee Trust Bank alone.

Both Sen Bwacha and Engr Ahmed Yusuf have worked under Taraba State Government in the past, which makes it easy for inspectors to obtain information from State government sources.
