Why Kizz Daniel refused to perform at Tanzanian concert, by promoter

Read Time:1 Minute, 51 Second

The show promoter has explained why Kizz Daniel refused to perform at a paid concert in Tanzania.

The “Buga” crooner was scheduled to perform at a well-publicised concert at Warehouse, Old Nextdoor Arena, Tanzania on Sunday but failed to show up.

Fans of the singer were forced to wait until 6 am for a live performance but Kizz Daniel was absent.

The singer was reported to have arrived in the country earlier but refused to perform because of unavailability of his clothes.

But in an Instagram Live session with Daddy Freeze after the news of the singer’s arrest by the Tanzanian police went viral, the show promoter, identified Steve claimed Vado refused to perform because the luggage containing his other gold chain was delivered.

According to Uwah, although Kizz had a gold chain on his neck, yet he refused to perform because the airline had failed to deliver his luggage that contained his other gold chains; insisting he must wear all of it for the show.

 

He noted his manager, Paulo called the singer from America, crying while begging him all night to honour the show but he refused to bulge.

Explaining reason for Kizz Daniel’s refusal to perform at the concert to Daddy Freeze, Uwah stated: “He only said the airline did not bring his bag, that is why he cannot perform because his gold chain is not there and he had a good chain on his neck, one but he wanted everything.”

“And I brought him harmonised skin. I brought in different clothes. So, he said just because the airline didn’t bring one of his bags, he cannot perform without his gold on his neck.

“That show, I spent nothing less than $300,000 because the show was a premium show. I’ll send you a video of that show. That show wasn’t a joke. A table for that show was sold for $5,000 and the highest table was sold for $10,000.

“I have all the contract with Paulo. Paulo is the one who I booked Kizz Daniel directly from.

“Paulo cried all night calling from America trying to beg this guy saying, ‘please go for the show’s, but he refused.”

Is my husband loosing his libido?

0 0
Read Time:59 Second

Dear Bunmi,

I am 52 and my husband is five years older. Our sex life used to be average but, lately, he finds it difficult to sustain an erection – sometimes he can’t even get one, in the first place. As it is now, we have not had sex for months, though we both want to.

Is this normal for older men?

Feyi, by e-mail.

Dear Feyi,

Your husband is maybe suffering from what is known as erectile dysfunction, ED, which medical reports say affects one in 10 men. It was once thought to be a normal part of ageing, but physical conditions can also contribute.

Diabetes is a cause. Others include poor blood flow to the penis from furred-up nerve damage, drug abuse, medication, alcoholism, smoking, high cholesterol, diseases affecting erectile tissue and neurological and severe chronic diseases. Most importantly, Stress, lack of Finance,  worry about sexual performance, depression and sexual boredom can be factors too.

At 57, your husband still has a lot of sexual mileage in him.  His doctor can make sure there are no physical causes for his current impotence.  Most men can be treated with tablets such as Viagra.

Fani-Kayode and ex-wife, Precious Chikwendu reunite again

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 58 Second
This was a truly surreal and historical moment.
For the first time in two years, totally unexpectedly and out of the blue, and after she took our sons Aragorn, Ragnar, Aiden and Liam out for yet another beautiful outing, Mama Aragorn came to the house to visit with us.
For two years she and I had not seen or spoken to one another, but on Saturday afternoon we spent no less than four hours together in which we talked, laughed and shared some beautiful moments.
It was touching to see members of my household and staff receive her and, led by our first son Aragorn who held her tightly by the hand, usher her through the gates and into the compound as I watched in utter disbelief and surprise from the balcony.
Moments earlier, I had seen them walking down from the top of the road through the CCTV cameras and from the same balcony.
It was a small crowd, led by Aragorn and his mother. They walked slowly with radiant smiles and laughter, whilst a convoy of cars followed them from behind.
It was the dramatic return of a great and beautiful queen who was simply resplendent and who shone as brightly as the morning star.
There are some moments that words cannot capture or express, and this was one of them.
After two long years of contentious silence and acrimonious separation, she graced us with her presence and came home.
It was joy all around to see the return of this great lioness.
Every single one of the 60 people that live and work in our home was happy to see her, and some even shed a few secret tears of joy.
Mama Aragorn displayed such courage, grace, dignity & class.
This was a moment that I shall cherish for many years.
This was a triumph for all lovers of peace and sons and daughters of righteousness.
This was the day that the power of God was made manifest, that joy came to Zuma close and that the Lion of Aso Drive roared in glory, victory, power and strength.
This was a moment that proved beyond all reasonable doubt that patience, restraint, understanding and peace bring nothing but joy and blessings.
This was a moment when light overcame darkness & that the secret prayers of four handsome little Princes were answered.
This was a moment when love, mutual respect, truth and mutual forgiveness triumphed and Satan was put to shame.
Thanks for coming Mama, Aragorn.
We love and appreciate you.
Always did, always will.
And though we have gone our separate ways the bond and cord that exists between us through our four beautiful boys can never be broken.
I also offer my thanks to my loyal and faithful wife and a true Daughter of Zion Mama Remi and to Mama Folake, Nerita, my beautiful daughters Folake and Remi, my son Nicholas and my entire family and household for their collective and unconditional love, understanding, resilience, loyalty, support and patience.
You stood firm, strong and bold and you kept encouraging me even through the raging storm and darkest moments.
Love conquered all and saw us through and so it shall continue to be.
From generation to generation our circle of love, our fellowship, our family, our children and our loved ones shall rise and go from strength to strength.
In every situation and circumstance, we shall prevail and the God that we serve shall never forsake us.
So it is and so it shall be.
God bless you all.
(FFK)

According to a man who recorded a video of a couple walking naked at VGC, it could be drugs.

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 33 Second

The actions of the couple who walked naked in Victoria Gardens City, VGC on Monday night have elicited mixed reactions.

The incident occurred on Road 28, House D5.

Speaking to some residents of VGC, Vanguard Metro gathered that the couple were under the influence of a  drug known as Colorado. But, there was no one in the house who could respond as the gate was under lock.

However, one of the neighbors who pleaded to remain anonymous said: “I was around the corner and I noticed people around 11 pm on Monday.

“They were smoking. I was the one that drew the attention of other people. Then the estate management security came and they handled the whole process and then they were taken to an undisclosed hospital for treatment.”

Another resident who identified his name as Amols Zuel said: “I was the one who made the video. People who were around said the couple took Colorado.

Colorado is a dangerous substance smoked by youths to enliven their spirit and get intoxicated, most times leading to insanity. The drug is like a sweet and when anybody takes it, the person will not know what he or she is doing any more.”

Also, other residents of VGC are of the opinion that the couple were in the business of rituals.

One of the residents said: “We believe it was not a drug, but they want fast money. It’s possible, it was what the person that made the charm asked them to do.”

Another resident said: “They are not the first to have done something of this nature.

After all, we have witnessed a woman who went to have her bath at VGC roundabout. This is not new here, please. “

Meanwhile, there has been notice from one of the neighbours on the estate.

According to the notice, “Dear neighbours, greetings to you, all. Yesterday on our close, at about 11pm, the Vice-Chairman called my attention to an ugly situation whereby two adults male and female were seen walking around the estate completely naked.

“Our estate security and management personnel accosted them and accompanied them to our close (63) where the duo purportedly reside in a BQ.

“As the case may be,  the situation soon got out of hand when both adults slit their writs and neck in what seemed to be a suicide attempt, saying they will die and rise again in 3 days.

“Further investigation of their BQ apartments revealed some items such as:  illegal drugs and other substances.

“They were obviously under the influence of some substances (drug abuse).

“Thank God for the swift response of our management, security and medical team who eventually sedated the victims and took them to the hospital around 12.45am.

“Drug abuse is real! May God helps our teens and let us be observant and report anything that looks out of the ordinary within the neighbourhood,” it reads.

However, every attempt to speak to VGC Chief Security proved abortive, as the people on the ground claimed he was on a long meeting.

How I persuaded some actresses not to have cosmetic surgery —Gloria Young

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 45 Second

Gloria Young, a veteran actress, believes that women who undergo cosmetic surgery to achieve a curvy appearance do so to impress others.

“They’re trying to impress others,” she said in an interview with Saturday Beats. I’m not sure what they mean by ‘they’re doing it for themselves.’ A woman who loves herself will stick to what God has given her and make the best of it. Put on appropriate clothing.

I have actually prevented a few of my coworkers from “going under the knife.” It is completely incorrect. It will become a habit that will be difficult to break. Furthermore, money is being squandered that could be used for something else. There are many hungry people out there, but these women are spending their money on themselves. That is their prerogative.”

Responding to a question on actresses who ‘work’ on their bodies to boost their careers, Young said, “I have always been a big person and it has never stopped me from working. I am still working on my weight because of my health. I may be getting more elderly women’s roles now but it is because I am not a small girl. In this day and age, people must realise that there are roles for everybody. But, we are in the glamour age where everyone wants to look slim.

“The camera has to like the actress, including the producers and directors. So, it may seem like they prefer slimmer people. However, one also needs to be talented to stay up there (in their career). It is not just about looks but also what one can deliver.”

Speaking on the criticisms that some entertainers have got for campaigning for politicians in the forthcoming elections, the actress said, “I really don’t want to talk about politics. I feel if I veer towards a particular side, I have a social responsibility to my fans. The only thing I can say to people who watch me and love my work is that they should get their permanent voter’s cards, and be sure of who they are voting for.”

How my son ended up choosing the course to study in the university -Ikenga Ezenwegbu

0 0
Read Time:5 Minute, 4 Second

“Daddy, what course should I study in the university?” my son, about to enter his final year in the secondary school, asked me. “My son, you should study Money-Making!” I answered unequivocally. “What do you mean, Daddy? I doubt if there is a course in any university called Money-Making, but I know of Entrepreneurship,” my son said, wondering what had happened to a man he once touted as “the ever-dependable brain” of a dad. I could guess that the boy was confused, and I needed to give him a further explanation.

“My son, I mean to say that you are at liberty to choose any course you are at ease with, but you should also figure out how that course would help you to put food on your table and make enough money to shoulder your responsibilities. If you choose an Agricultural course, think about its applications to making money, like commercial farming or setting up Agro-allied industries. If you choose Medicine, think of how to own a medical facility that would provide top-notch services that would yield the kind of money you want. Do you understand?” I asked a son whose eyes had been ignited. In his eyes, I could see a riot of ideas. That was what I wanted to achieve. He needed to be fired up. He must be achievement conscious.

I told my boy that he might, by accident of history or destiny, veer off entirely from his area of study upon graduation into another field he did not study, and out of which he would make a living; that it often happened to many people. I said this because I gauged that the guy was about to remind me that I read Microbiology and ended up in banking. Children of these days could be that audacious. They say it without any fear of cane or reproach.
“My son, in your DNA, already is a money opportunity detector gene. Every Nnewi child born, truly through the phallus, of his father has that gene. The gene gives a person from Nnewi, Orlu, Abiriba, or Old Bende people in Abia State etc an exceptional ability to sense money from any endeavour from afar. However, my son, note that you do not have to make money. If that is the case, you better enter the seminary or monastery now, but I know that you love good things of life; therefore, you must fathom how to generate money to fund your needs and wants. Once you are out of school, I will withdraw my financial oxygen from you. You shall become your own man.
“Son, you need to make money for your use and to boost your confidence because “akụ na esi obi ike” meaning that a wealthy man is a confident one. You also need to make money to take care of your wife, children, mum, in-laws, and extended family.

“Listen to me, do not mind the effusive love your mum professes for me; it got sweeter when I started earning more money and giving her the comfort she craved for. I am afraid that the intensity of that love might decrease if I become poor, but she will deny it if you ask her. Verily, I say onto you my son, please believe me as your father, money is not love, but it is the salt in a love soup as it is the sugar in a love tea. Your wife will love more a successful you than a you in lack. You must also make allowance for me, your father, especially when I shall become weak and old. You now can see clearly that I am also an interested party? Of course, you need to make enough money to be able to earn relevance in the ụmụnna, our village and Nnewi assembly,” I painstakingly told my son with punctuated emphasis.
I also painted for my son the picture of hell more lurid than the Gehena painted in the Bible. I always ask him to be upright, fair and square in his quest to achieving his life’s goals; that both heaven and land of our ancestors are real and that only good souls enter there.

In this encounter and many others, I impressed on my son the need to always be alert in his thoughts and in awareness and that he must be financially responsible. He also knows that he will marry early. That, too, helps a young man to focus. I told him that all the billionaires of reckon in Nnewi with no exception married before the age of 27.
That is how we raise boys into men in Nnewi.

However, if an Nnewi son tries his best and does not create the level of wealth he craves for, “enu na ana” or “the land and the heavens” would bear him witness that he put in the best. When the outcome does not justify the inputs or when the vicissitude of life moderates the outcomes, then the victim is said to be “omebelu ma Chi ekwena”, meaning “one who did his best to succeed but it was not meant to be.” We, too, have many of such cases in Nnewi. It is a known practice till date that bachelors and married men don’t get same share of meat or drinks. Men are separated into Okokpolo (single) and Mbiuno (married) in Nnewi.

As I watched my 16-year-old son yesterday file out with his Mechanical Engineering classmates for matriculation, I prayed that God helps him achieve his desire to make a living out of cars, equipment and tools manufacturing. What Innoson is doing at Nnewi must have influenced his choice of course. I only hope he steadies his gaze and not end up becoming a banker like his father and mother, who studied Microbiology and Food Science & Technology respectively. I have just prayed and wish as a parent but the future of our children is like a pencil in the hands of God. I have done my bit.

Amaechi’s Birthday: 57 Garlands to a Visionary, Courageous, result-oriented Leader on a Mission to Rescue Nigeria

Amaechi’s Birthday: 57 Garlands to a Visionary, Courageous, result-oriented Leader on a Mission to Rescue Nigeria

…APC Presidential Ticket is the Best Birthday Gift that Suits Amaechi on this Auspicious Occasion

For the past fourteen years or so I have steadily done birthday messages on a date like this in honour of my beloved friend, brother, associate, benefactor and leader, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, erstwhile Governor of Rivers State and immediate past Minister of Transportation. On this 57th birthday, I have done a book titled, “AMAECHI: HIS FEATS, INSPIRATIONAL, REVOLUTIONARY LEADERSHIP STYLE & ITS IMPACT IN RIVERS STATE & NIGERIA, highlighting most of his feats in public life in a 30 chapter book. The book is yet to be formally presented to the public due to the very busy engagements of the ex-Minster who has been very busy, touring round the country for consultative engagements with delegates ahead of the presidential primary of the All Progressives Congress.

I have done over 500 articles and press statements on issues pertaining to this reformer and a composite gentleman but this book contains all that one needs to know about AMAECHI and his style of politics.

In the vastly informative, educating and inspiring work, I, insightfully dissected and shedded light on the genesis of my relationship with the celebrant which dates back to 2007.

 

The work did substantial justice to all the feats recorded by Amaechi as the Governor of Rivers State and Minister of Transportation and what he has gone through in the hands of friends and associates as well as his tall status in the politics of Nigeria.

 

Similarly, I made an in-depth analysis of Amaechi with a precise concentration on his feats as the first Nigerian to assume office as a State Governor in Nigeria while on self-exile and the only Nigerian to have been a two time Speaker of Rivers State House of Assembly and Chairman, Conference of Speakers of State Houses of Assembly in Nigeria, two-time Governor of Rivers State (eight years) and two-time Chairman, Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF). Two time Director General of the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation that unseated PDP from Power in 2015 and successful led the reelection of President Muahhamdu Buhari as the President of Nigeria in 2019. These feats are not very common anywhere yet they seem not to be enough in presenting him as a man ahead of his time.

 

On the work, I took time to present a comprehensive account of his efforts and success in making Port Harcourt the World Book Festival hub and UNESCO World Book Capital City for the year 2014, making it the 14th city in the world to be selected as World Book Capital and the first in Black Africa, beating 10 other great cities, such as Oxford in England and Moscow in Russia.

 

I have tried to assess the feats of this unique transformer as the only Nigerian leader to have initiated the setting up of one of the largest metropolitan areas in Nigeria when he embarked upon the establishment of the Greater Port Harcourt City covering eight Local Government Areas of Rivers State. Having dealt with his feats in the areas of education revolution, the sewage challenge in Rivers State and how he plotted the unseating of a sitting and very powerful President in Africa, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP (with all the powers of incumbency, control of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation-NNPC, The Central Bank of Nigeria-CBN, the Independent National Electoral Commission-INEC, the highly rated corrupt political and religious leaders with all the security organs/apparatus in his pocket), I will leave it to people who still ask me if Amaechi truly is a man ahead of his time.

 

Amaechi’s feats in curbing insecurity in Rivers State to the effect that for a whole year in 2010, there was no single armed robbery incident in Rivers State marked singled him out as a foresighted fellow. He initiated the Monorail magic in Nigeria, did other magical acts in the Agricultural and health sectors, and exhibited his prudent management of public finance.

 

The accounts of his survival from the onslaught of Dr. Jonathan, Dame Patience Jonathan, Joseph Mbu (then Rivers State Commissioner of Police), Nyesom Wike and Federal Government agencies, earned him a large place on the map of courage.

 

Given his personality and rare breed and coupled with the roles he played and still continues to play in the politics of Nigeria, Amaechi is placed in the mould of other great nationalists around the world. A case in point was the political war of 2007. Amaechi had won the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Rivers State gubernatorial ticket but was denied the right to fly the flag under very curious and controversial circumstances which later became the infamous “K-leg” episode. But the Supreme Court of Nigeria in a landmark judgement affirmed him as the duly elected Governor of Rivers State. That was about four months after Sir Celestine Omehia, incidentally Amaechi’s cousin, had been sworn in as Governor of Rivers State.

 

Writing Amaechi’s exploits in the politics of Nigeria would not be enough in one book but I tried hard to examine how this Ubima-born leader undertook the greatest risk, or rather a suicidal mission, to remove a party that prided itself as the largest political party/movement in Africa, destined to govern Nigeria for sixty years.

 

In summary, this book of about 350 pages covering 30 chapters with illustrative and action pictures covers the following critical issues that affect the life and politics of Rt. Hon. Dr. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi: The Factors And Basics of my Encounter and Relationship with Amaechi. It will explain who Amaechi is, his beginning and education, and his venture into Nigerian politics.

 

Other areas that the book covers include the Unity Government – The PDP, AC Example in Rivers; Amaechi and his incredible feats in Rivers State; The security situation that Amaechi inherited and how he rescued the State; His exemplary feats in Education; His feats in Agriculture; His feats in Health; and general physical and infrastructural development of Rivers State. It will also look at how Amaechi managed the resources of Rivers State, his endless persecutions, struggle for the soul of Rivers State APC, the power play and ministerial nomination and confirmation, the unseating of a sitting President and leading the Presidential Campaign on two Occasions.

 

The book also focuses on the Buhari’s struggle for presidency and Amaechi as his Presidential Campaign Director General, Amaechi and the Railway Revolution in Nigeria, Buhari and emancipation and development of the old Eastern Nigeria including some of the outstanding associates of Amaechi. Other thoughts about Amaechi, family ties, testimonies, and awards were exposed in such a way that the myth behind his person and personality of was be laid bare.

 

ON HIS QUEST TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF NIGERIA

 

Nigeria is at a precarious time in its evolution. The task ahead is enormous. Nigeria desperately needs the right leader to get the right fixes. A president who will address the hydra of insurgency, banditry and kidnapping; galloping debts, oil revenue shrinkage, freewheeling inflation, and the Venus flytrap called petrol subsidy. These are tasks demanding extraordinary competence and a surfeit of courage and a one time President of Nigeria, General Olusegun Obasanjo recently stated that Nigeria needs a madman to rescue the country from its present sad state and from the feats listed above Amaechi fits the mould of a character required for the onerous task at the moment.

 

To many opinion leaders, Amaechi stands out as the most resilient of all the presidential hopefuls in the APC and opposition parties. He resigned his appointment as Minister to trudge through an undulating and serpentine path. He makes the politically impossible seem plausible. He is the earl of possibilities; a fighter and believer. He has visited virtually all the states, seeking the support of APC delegates. Some of the Governors and APC stakeholders have publicly declared their support for him. In Plateau state, Simon Lalong, the governor, said: “You are the first presidential aspirant to come and see us, when I invited others to come, they said they can’t come to Plateau because it would be a waste of time because Plateau people will not vote for them, but will vote for Amaechi. So, you didn’t need to talk much. We want to rely on somebody that has done it before. We are telling you so that you would not waste your time to come back for campaigns. We have taken our decision. You have done a lot for our people.”

 

Muhammad Badaru, governor of Jigawa, also endorsed Amaechi for the APC presidential ticket. He said ”it’s either you or me”.

 

With the plethora of achievements Amaechi has attracted to Nigeria under the Buhari/APC government, the most befitting and suitable birthday package for his 57 birth anniversary would be the APC Presidential ticket which will definitely get to him God willing.

 

Given the result of feelers from the Consultative Tours and other strategic engagements of the Minister and his team directed by Sen. Ndume, it is crystal clear that Ndume, the Borno South Senator is versed in the business of politics and has got the right keys needed to unlock the path to Aso Rock and solve the development puzzle of Nigeria.

 

In all the visits both to the Obas, Traditional Rulers, Delegates, Opinion leaders, Stakeholders, it has been encomiums on Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and approvals for his Nigerian project for 2023.

 

With the drafting of the former Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Brutai, Senator Nurudeen Obateem, Hon Nasiru Ajanah, Mr. Sulaiman the former IGP and other great strategists lik Dr. Dakuku Peterside, Senator Andrew Uchendu, Prince Tonye Princewill, Hon. Aso Wenah to help Senator Aliyu Ndume in this onerous task coupled with the massive goodwill and supports pledged by party leadership in over 30 States, the road to Aso Rock seems to be clearer and smoother on daily basis.

 

The kind words of the Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule, gives one hope that the country is on the right path. Read what this foresighted leader said when Amaechi visited his State,

“Amaechi, your boss, your friend, the man you love President Muhammadu Buhari, has the final say. This is the man we all respect and believe in, where he goes is where we go. No governor can do otherwise,”

 

Read his further revelation: “But more than you can sell yourself, the team that is following you is intimidating. The team is a selling point. My dear brother, General Yusuf Buratai, is not one that follows people around. I know he must have heard something that l don’t know. His excellency, Amb. Yusuf Tugar is not known to follow people just like that. I’m ready to follow these your delegates.”

 

For avoidance of doubt and with the results so far recorded from his engagements with delegates and stakeholders, the dream of Nigerian to have a better, agile and well equipped President to restore Nigerias dignity and pride of place in the comity of nations seems to be realizable very soon.

 

For those who are still in doubt of the prospects of Amaechi in this struggle, let me bring in the encouraging report of my good friend, Mr. Michael Jegede, containing events of the few weeks of Amaechi’s consultative tour:

 

“Better placed as the bridge between the young and old generations, the 56-years-old ex-Rivers governor has, within the last two to three weeks, showed great vim, energy and strength as he moved with high speed from Delta to Rivers, Cross River, Edo, Bayelsa, having earlier covered the entire states in the South-West and South-East. His train moved progressively to Kaduna last Sunday from where it headed to Adamawa, Nasarawa, Kano, Jigawa, Bauchi, FCT, Niger, Benue and Plateau between Monday and Thursday.

 

The acceptability of the Ikwerre-born consummate grassroots politician, a pragmatic and visionary leader, highly respected for his courage, doggedness and strength of character, could be seen from the level of support he is getting from the delegates.

 

For instance, in Taraba State, convinced that Nigerians will be the ultimate beneficiary of Amaechi’s stewardship, the APC delegates there vowed to give him at least 90 percent of their votes on the day of the convention.

 

In Kaduna, the delegates were touched after listening to the testimony of their governor, Nasir El-Rufai, about the character and person of the former Transportation Minister and immediately endorsed him as their preferred choice.

 

While in Adamawa State where he equally got the assurances of party delegates, the Lamido of Adamawa, Alhaji Muhammadu Barkindo Mustapha, gave Amaechi his blessing and prayed for his emergence as Nigeria’s President in 2023. The monarch believed that with what he did in his eight years as Rivers helmsman, Nigerians will enjoy the true dividends of democratic governance under his leadership as president.

 

The Chairman, Bayelsa State Council of Traditional Rulers, King Bubaraye Agada the 10th, was highly elated to receive Amaechi in Yenagoa during his visit to the state to interface with delegates.

 

He said: “We are delighted to have you, you are an aspirant who has come to do the needful.

 

“You are our son, I have never seen a resume or profile of your type being two-time Speaker, two-time Governor and two-time Minister; we must give you the needed support.”

 

Governor Muhammad Badaru of Jigawa State, likewise an APC presidential aspirant, tacitly stepped down for Amaechi when he visited the state to engage the delegates.

 

According to Badaru, “One thing I respect about my big brother and friend (Amaechi) is that what you see is what you get. He doesn’t lie; he doesn’t pretend. He says it straight, and that’s the quality of leaders this country needs.

 

“So Jigawa delegates, when you think of me, think of Amaechi because we are the children of President Buhari, so on that day, it’s either I run or he runs, but for sure, I cannot run against him.”

 

In Plateau, the delegates in one accord with their governor, Simon Lalong, unanimously adopted Amaechi, as their sole candidate, while revealing that he was the first APC presidential aspirant to visit the state ahead of the convention.

 

The story is the same from state to state. Majority of the delegates are at home with Amaechi and determined to gladly give him their votes at the forthcoming APC convention. They are of the notion that the vast experience he has garnered in governance, having been privileged to have consistently remained in the corridors of power since 1999, will stand him in good stead to perform as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Like many other well-meaning Nigerians, the delegates see Amaechi as the most qualified, competent and suitable candidate for the Presidency among those aspiring to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023″.

 

Amaech has demonstrated that he is a visionary leader and has outlined his key plans for the country which includes eradicating insecurity in Nigeria in all ramifications.

 

While Amaechi will win most of the states in the presidential primaries, he will actually need more than that to become victorious. He needs Buhari’s imprimatur. He needs the president’s endorsement to sail plainly through the primaries. Buhari’s endorsement will seal it for Amaechi and thank God President Buhari is fully aware of what Amaechi has done in his political life.

 

According to this statement credited to President Buhari that has gone viral, “I stand by a man who funded me when we couldn’t hold our party the CPC convention, the one who knelt before them in Lagos to keep APC together, I stand by a true friend and a committed team player. Without his singular and committed effort, advising Mallam behind the scene and ordinary, there wouldn’t have been APC, the merger wouldn’t have succeeded, I wouldn’t have been APC presidential candidate, most especially there wouldn’t have been APC govt which all of those who want to be President.”

 

While I congratulate Amaechi as he turns 57, I am confident that God willing, things will surely work out for the Presidency of Amaechi come 2023.

 

Once again, Congratulations your Excellency and Happy Progressive Birthday!

 

Ends

 

Signed

 

Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze,

Activist, Reno Omokri

Activist, Reno Omokri has warned destiny helpers of poor people. According to him, helping a poor man who has no means of livelihood will cause a population explosion.

‘’Stop justifying giving help to a poor man because he has a wife and many kids.
Let him suffer! Such a man needs to suffer! Such a man needs to suffer so that other people see him suffer and learn not to have kids they can’t cater for. Or we will have more of such in the society if you help them.
If you keep helping men for the sole reason that they are poor and have many kids, their mentality will be: born as you like, God will use mumu people to help you train them. in case you don’t know, that is already the mentality of many low, or no wage earners, who have many children.
Your kindness is feeding that mentality and creating a population explosion, resulting in insecurity!”
