PDP, Nigeria’s only hope – Tambuwal



PDP, Nigeria’s only hope – Tambuwal

Aminu Tambuwal, Sokoto State Governor and Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum, has said that the party is the only hope Nigeria has to salvage it from its current challenges, assuring that it will bounce back in 2023.

He said this on Sunday at a grand reception held at the Government House, Bauchi, in honour of the PDP governors who are in the state capital for a meeting.

Tambuwal said that it was obvious that it was only the PDP that had the solution to the various challenges the country is currently facing.

Represented by Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku of Taraba State, Tambuwal lamented that the country was going through a hard time in the face of insecurity ranging from insurgency and banditry to kidnapping, as well as unemployment, poverty, among others.

The PDP Governors Forum Chairman assured that the PDP has what it takes to deliver Nigeria from its problems.

“We have no hope except in PDP. We will live in the PDP and salvage whatever the country is left off when we regain power in 2023.

“If you look around, all the PDP states are where there is work ongoing and I am sure, I am speaking the facts and minds of many Nigerians.

“Those who are running and leaving PDP to where their sins are forgiven, so if you are a bad and corrupt man, come over to APC where your sins are forgiven. We do not agree and believe in intimidation, we will remain in PDP. We will capture power, change and improve Nigeria.

“Those who said that they were going to conquer and remove Boko Haram in six months, it is now six years and they are still there, they cannot do it. It is getting worse, there are now several Bokos, not one Boko Haram. It is now herdsmen Boko Haram, herdsmen Haram,” Tambuwal said.

He, however, appealed to Nigerians to give PDP another change in 2023, assuring that the party would change the narratives within the shortest time if given the opportunity in the next general elections.

“I assure that we will do it again, give us the mandate. We are all coming back in 2023.We assure you that this time for real that in six months, we will change the terrain; we will change the narratives. We will make Nigerians happy again,” he said

Speaking earlier, the governors’ host and Bauchi State governor, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, said that PDP had the experience to take Nigeria out of the blues, having done it before.

“PDP has done it before. We have all the structure that is required and we have the experience from 1999 till date and that is why I must thank our leaders, the governors for bringing this initiative, where we are going from state to state, zone to zone to discuss our problems and challenges and the problem of governance,” Governor Mohammed said.

According to him, those defecting from PDP were doing so because they were either being pursued by something or something was pursuing them, declaring that their defection might be better for the party after all.

“I know there has been a prevalence of defection that is worrying so many people, those that must go must go. They are either pursuing something or something is pursuing them.

“So if they go, it may be better for us. For some of us that you see here, there is no where to go, PDP is the only answer for Nigeria,” he said

Festus Keyamo: Federal Government Cannot Borrow N1.1 Trillion to End ASUU Strike



Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for Labour and Employment, said on Friday that borrowing money to end the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ months-long strike was unrealistic.

He made the remark during an appearance on one the television channels.

“Should we borrow to pay N1.2 trillion a year?”

“You cannot allow one sector of the economy to hold you hostage and then blackmail you into borrowing N1.2 trillion for overheads when our total income would be around N6.1 trillion.” And you have to build roads, health centers, and other sectors.”
The Minister urged parents throughout the country to petition ASUU.

“Those who know them, like the President said the other time, appeal to their sense of patriotism,” he said.

“Let them go back to school.” They are not alone in Nigeria. They are not the only ones who benefit from federal funds. The nation cannot come to a halt because we want to meet ASUU’s demands.”

ASUU’s Demands

On February 14, ASUU began a four-week warning strike.

On March 14, the union extended the strike for another two months in order to allow the government to meet all of its demands. On May 9, a 12-week extension was announced.

The union has been on strike since May 9, vowing to continue until its demands are met.

Academics want better working conditions, the revitalization of public universities, and academic autonomy, among other things.

One point of contention for academics is the non-payment of N1.1 trillion in university revitalisation funds.

However, the Federal Government has stated that it does not have the funds to pay such a sum, citing low oil prices during the administration of Muhammadu Buhari.

According to reports, the agreement was reached in 2009.

Another issue is the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

The University Transparency and Accountability Solution was proposed by academics as an alternative payroll system (UTAS).
