Former nPDP spokesman blasts Oyinlola, Baraje over ultimatum to Buhari, APC

Former National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), Chukwuemeka Eze, has upbraided erstwhile nPDP National Chairman, Kawu Baraje, and ex National Secretary, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, over their letter to President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC), alleging marginalisation.

Eze, in a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja, expressed sadness over the letter and the ultimatum, stressing that the writers cannot speak for him and many other former nPDP members.

“After going through their letter of May 9, 2018 to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the need to straighten some of the facts raised in the letter becomes imperative to at least to douse the unnecessary tension the letter has so far generated in the polity”, he said.

“It is unfortunate that Alhaji Baraje and Prince Oyinlola could send this type of letter without recourse to me or most of the stakeholders of the movement, considering our key roles in making the nPDP the beautiful bride it turned out to be and in bringing the administration of Dr. Jonathan Goodluck down to its knees after teaming up with like minds in the mega party, APC.

“This letter has generated so much unnecessary tension in the polity that some sections of the media and polity have already concluded that this will lead to implosion of APC and probably to the downfall of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and the return of PDP to power.

“Without mincing words, I wish to assure Nigerians that the letter though engineered by some of the key actors of the nPDP looking for attention from President Buhari to negotiate for relevance during and after the 2019 general elections but using a body that has already got dissolved in the bigger body of APC, is not in order and acceptable to some of us who risked our lives in projecting the ideals and vision of the body.

“Prince Oyinola was appointed the Chairman of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) while Alhaji Baraje is occasionally given one national assignment or the other. While he has resigned to face his new political movement as one of the key actors of General Olusegun Obasanjo’s National Coalition Movement that has dissolved into African Democratic Congress (ADC) party, Alhaji Baraje probably is looking for a higher form of reward or trying to raise the stakes in negotiating with those prompting him into another political movement.

“In case some of us may have forgotten, the essence of teaming up with other progressive forces to unseat the PDP administration in 2015 was based on our collective resolve to fight corruption. Seeing how far the Buhari Administration has gone in this regard and bringing back hope to Nigerians, it becomes sad that some of us for political exigency want to go back to our vomit. Some of us should be excused from such venture because we will stay in APC to continue the struggle salvaging of our nation, Nigeria.

“The issue of marginalisation: It is unwise for anybody to think that in a setting like ours, everybody would be accommodated or assigned a political position. The claim of marginalisation easily collapses when we compare the components of APC and the key offices assigned to these components. In APC, we have Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), a faction of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and, of course, New PDP.

“While the Office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria went to President Buhari (CPC), the Vice President went to Prof Yemi Osiabanjo (ACN), Senate President went to Dr Bukola Saraki (nPDP), and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara (nPDP). Can a group occupying the third and fourth major offices in Nigeria be rightly said to be marginalised?

“In the National Executive Committee (NEC) of APC, New PDP has not less than seven members with the National Publicity Secretary of the party a member of the nPDP, so where does marginalisation come in while most of our members were elected Governors in various States, Senators, Members of House of Representatives, appointed Ministers, Chairmen and members of Boards, Ambassadors, etc?

“The only challenge is that those privileged to be appointed or assigned one office or the other abandoned most of the members of the group to wallow in poverty. Turning around to blame the leadership of APC or the government of President Buhari is a misplaced priority,” he said.

This is obviously a big lie…. Why didn’t they show us a picture with d baby still bloodied and directly out of his mother’s womb?? In this picture they were obviously doing the naming ceremony, dropping money for d child and anyone could hv placed that Koran image in its hands….. People stop forming ignorance like this na…..haba

I’m muslim but having a hard time to believe this… Allahu akbar! And Nigeria is indeed a country with miracles and mysteries

well am very wit various comment,some are believed it why some are saying it in possible,to me all what i know is,almighty Allah have already said in d same Qur’an that gave it to that baby, He said: We will show Our sign to them in every where till they will see the truth one, if God want guide them to right part they will believe it,but those who will go astray will definitely go astray, may God continuing guiding us to the right part. ameen.

infact, we Muslim must give thanks to almighty ALLAH all the single moment of our life because he has sent and show so many miraculous way for the other religion to believe that there is no other god but GOD and it also show that islam is the best i thanks GOD for my life and my religion fellow

infact is incredible, anyway i believe dat there nothin dat is impossible it might be truth.

 Some of you are fools…. God sent him to us to repent our sins and some of you are claiming that is not true… If its not true then go and fight with God that sent him to us… when Jesus Christ was pregnated by hollyspirit none of you can against the possibility. we need to watch our mouth. God is the same be u christian or muslim.

This is further confirmation of the divinity of the holy Quran and its originaty, Mohd( PBUH ).May Allah guide and guard us. May HE bless Nigeria with sustainable peace,wise and God-fearing leaders as well as peacefull, united and obidient followers.

Mhmm I only pity Lagos Pastors. They have a lot to explain come

u guys are just sayin dis n dat, dnt u knw both Allah n God is d same n means d same, even d muslims dnt knw anytin anymore, we are all 1, i attended a muslim school, prayed d muslim prayer, so wats d big deal abt wat u guys are turnin it 2, its nt worth it. my brother is a muslim, so should i say i shouldn’t talk 2 him bcos he is nt my religion? Religion is the name, our heart is the temple, think abt it n stop all these talks. 

we are the same in human being but not serving the same God at all…. Muslim os different from christian,we all know that.but we are still friend..

I am one of the people that do not have impossibility in their dictionary. Yet I need to confirm this as it is still  a mystery  to me.

 gat some fools here will still dont believe that Allah is the greatest..Eitch…Ya Allah ..Oluchi Olivia Okakpu u are such a big fool and co

This shows how gullible nigeria can be. If you believe this then you would believe anything

Am a Muslim and i believe in Jesus Christ cos no Muslim is a Muslim if he doesn’t believe in Jesus cos is a prophet. Proud to be a Muslim……Fuck u haters…Allah is the greatest

when both Christian and Muslim stronly believed how Jesus Christ was Born then why can’nt we just believed how the little Baby was Born with Holy Quran on his hand. Vivian Hailsham, Angel Amaka, isOlufemi Fasure, Jennifer Uzoamaka Ozor and Osundare Kolawole i believed if you guyd where born at the regime of Jesus christ you guys will be among of people that would not believed him. Believed or not, Muhammed is the last Prophet and you must accepted him as you accepted Jesus Christ, there is a Prophet before Jesus christ and when Jesus Christ came people accepted him. I believed if you guys where born at the regime of Jesus christ you guys maybe thinking it maybe some one that pregnanted Jesus christ mother. BIG SHAME TO U ALL. ALHAH IS GREATEST. This is not the first symbol of Alhah and it will not be the last okay.

That  is the work  of  ALLAH ,, The HOLY QURAN was sent to  the  baby”s  hand spiritually by GOD  not specifically ..TO SHOW THAT  THERE  NO  OTHER  GOD EXCEPT ALLAH ,,, ALLAHU AKBAR ( ALLAH IS GREAT) 

 And [had you been present],
you would see the sun when it rose, inclining away from
their cave on the right, and when it set, passing away from
them on the left, while they were [laying] within an open
space thereof. That was from the signs of Allah . He whom Allah
guides is the [rightly] guided, but he whom He leaves astray
– never will you find for him a protecting guide.(Q18:17)

yea this is not news but an instrument to deceive people who are of little faith but remember those that endure this to the end shall receive the crown

All of us we will surely get too presence of our God,whether Christ is the Way or Allah.

Allah Akbar….Ina Dinah ind-ah lahi all Islam…There is no true way to heaven expect ISLAM.This is a wonderful sign to all our christian and Muslim brothers and sister in the global world.Accept Islam today and be free.

This tells us that christians and muslim are one. This also implies that muslims should stop their hatred against christians. we don’t own ourselves but God

as for i don’t hate Christians,before we can say we are one is only when we dramatics what is written in the holy Quran or Bible….
