The ‎Ogun State governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has prevailed on two traditional rulers in the state to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari to vehemently reject the emergency of Prince, Dapo Abiodun as the gubernatorial candidate in the 2019 general election.

In a release signed by the Media Director, Dapo Abiodun Campaign Organisation (DACO), Mr. Emmanuel Ojo, have it that Alake of Egbaland, HRM, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo. And Olu of Ilaro, HRM, Oba Kehinde Gbadewole Adeboye Olugbenle, were the Obas that have been successfully hoodwinked and placed on standby for the task.

He added that having failed with so many attempts geared towards legalizing illegality, which including a botched attempt to get an ex parte order at the Federal High Court Abeokuta on Friday 19th October, noted that it was quite unfortunate that Governor Amosun was using his position of authority to unduly influence and mobilize respected traditional leaders for such hatched job.

He said the act was capable of desecrating the symbol of peace and unity which the traditional leaders stands for and must be widely condemned by the concerned citizens of the state at home and diasporas, noted that the entire Ogun State indigenes was given their mandate to Dapo Abiodun as governorship candidate.

He said that traditional leaders should not be dragged into this kind of murky politics which was heavily laden with ulterior and selfish motive being singlehandedly pursued by Governor Amosun, who was frantically and desperately looking for every possible means to upturn the final decision of party members in the state, and duly ratified by the National Working Committee (NWC) of APC.

‎ He stated further that President Muhammadu Buhari was a peace loving, whose integrity could not be compromised by anyone in the country, saying that President Buhari would not upturn the mandate that had been freely given to Prince Dapo Abiodun by all members of Ogun APC, in a bid to satisfy the personal interest of Governor Amosun.

He admonished the general public and well-meaning citizens of Ogun State and Nigerians to kindly find out the real reason behind Governor Amosun’s desperate moves to install Hon. AabdulKabir Akinlade at all costs, and why he was adamant that Dapo Abiodun should not be given mandate.

NNPC dissmisses report of looming fuel scarcity

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has dismissed the speculations of an impending petroleum products scarcity in the country.

“Providing information on the petroleum products stock level became necessary to dispel suggestions that the threat of strike action by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) would result in a slip into a round of products shortages across the country,” NNPC Spokesman Ndu Ughamadu said on Sunday.

“The corporation had 39 days petroleum products sufficiency and about 25 days products availability on land, stressing that motorists and other consumers of petroleum products are assured of adequate stock to meet their energy needs,” he added.

This is coming after the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and other trade unions insisted on commencing a nationwide strike from Tuesday.

The labour union said its members were not accepting anything less than the N30,000 it said was agreed as new minimum wage at a tripartite meeting with government and private employers of labour.

However, the federal government insisted on a N24, 000 minimum wage package, while the state governors said they can only afford to pay N22,500.

The federal government on Friday secured a court injunction to restrain workers from embarking on the strike, the NLC leadership insisted that nothing can stop it from going ahead with the planned nationwide strike.

The NNPC spokesman, however, advised motorists not to panic as the corporation would do all it could to ensure the strike action does not affect negatively on fuel distribution nationwide.
