Jonathan, 2015 and threats by fire-spitting militants

At the presidential level, Goodluck Jonathan has taken the Oath of Allegiance and the Oath of Office on three occasions — first as the vice-president, as the acting president and again as the substantive president.  These pledges were taken, not as a sectional or ethnic leader, but as a national leader. But in recent times, particularly within some Ijaw enclaves, many act as if Jonathan is the President of the Ijaw ethnic group.

2015 Elections: No zoning in our constitution –APC

The All Progressives Congress has said that its presidential candidates will emerge through transparent primaries.
  The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who stated this in a telephone interview with one of our correspondents, said the party would neither give preference to any zone nor fix positions for candidates from any part of the country for the 2015 general elections.

 Mohammed was reacting to a report that the APC had zoned the presidency to the North and the vice-presidency to the South-East. The report  had said that  the party  zoned the vice-presidency to the South-East to break the stronghold of the Peoples Democratic Party in the area.

Bisi Akanda talks about Buhari, Jonathan, Amaechi and 2015

You were quoted as saying that the All Progressives Congress is not so keen on the presidency come 2015. What then is your focus?
I will rather say I was misquoted. How would there be a major party in 2013 and such party will not be keen about 2015? We are very much keen about 2015. The only thing I said, maybe, beclouded the one I did not say. What I said was that our preoccupation as an interim leadership of the APC was to mobilise and register members, to conduct congresses and convention to establish a good structure, a durable structure for the new party and that the priority now is the Anambra election and possibly, the Delta State senatorial election which will come up anytime from now.

2015: Buhari to contest APC presidential primary

Fomer Head of State Maj.-Gen. Buhari is likely to contest presidential primary of the All Nigeria Peoples Party.  His loyalists told SUNDAY PUNCH that despite the anti-Buhari lobby in the APC, the general would contest the primary.

SUNDAY PUNCH gathered that the anti-Buhari lobby in APC is made up of two groups. The first group consists of senior Northern politicians who want the general to bury his ambition in order for a younger northerner to contest the presidential primaries. This group is also said to be shopping for a guarantee that the general will support whoever emerges as the presidential candidate of the party.

A veteran presidential candidate and a major stakeholder in the newly-registered All Progressives Congress, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) on Tuesday said the new party was determined to push out the ruling Peoples Democratic Party in 2015.
“The APC is focus-driven to push the PDP out of power by 2015,” Buhari told members of the Democratic Emancipation Movement who paid him a courtesy visit in Kaduna.

But the PDP said on Tuesday that Buhari, who ruled Nigeria as a military Head of State between 1983 and 1985, was day-dreaming.

Deciphering 2015 Cryptic Code: Find GEJ!

In 1588, King Philip II of Spain launched the Spanish Armada against Britain, This fleet of 130 ships  carrying more than 24,000 men, sailed up the British Channel, only to suffer defeat  by the British Navy and to fall victim contrary winds and fierce Atlantic storms. This event marked the decisive passing of Naval superiority from Spain to England.

Is PDP falling victim to contrary winds and fierce APC storms and it's lacked of internal democracy mechanism? APC should not dither to cash on these loopholes. Welcome to Wadata Plaza, PDP headquarter, an Amphitheater of Dreams for PDP chairmen. For PDP chairmen the seat remains the most unsettled and uncertain. Wadata Plaza remains a nightmare for it’s would be occupants.
