Homos-exual Governors Declare War On President Jonathan Over Anti-gay Bill

Fresh and authentic news filtering in social circle indicates that a group of powerful politicians, who are prominent in the act of homosexuality, are the force behind the seemingly unpopular agitation against the anti-gay bill, which was recently signed into law by President Goodluck Jonathan.

At the forefront of this group is a very powerful oligarchy, which has seen it all in the business circle having been on the board of many viable companies including a bank owned by a very powerful chief from the South West.

Governors to confront Jonathan over $49.8bn oil revenue

Nigerian governors are poised to confront President Goodluck Jonathan on the alleged refusal of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to remit $49.8bn to the Federation Account.
The governors based their decision on the revelation  made by the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria,  Mallam  Lamido Sanusi, in a letter issued by him, that the NNPC had failed to remit the money, which was said to be the proceeds from crude oil sales between January 2012 and July 2013.

Nigerian Police: Now Armed Wing of PDP
The Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) hereby registers its dismay that for the second weekend in a row, officers of the Nigeria Police illegally stormed and disrupted a meeting by seven governors and other Nigerians going about their constitutionally guaranteed rights of association.

The police action is not only alarming but also demonstrates clearly that the force, instead of carrying out its constitutional responsibilities of maintaining peace and order in the society has become no more than the armed wing of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

VIDEO: Police DPO Disgraced By G7 Governors

Contrary to reports that the police officer held the G7 Governors of the new Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, hostage, he was disgraced at the Kano Governor’s Lodge.

Atiku Abubakar Rejects Automatic Tickets For President, Governors

FORMER Vice President Atiku Abubakar has again rejected plans by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to tamper with the party’s constitution, with a view to granting automatic tickets to elected officers, particularly the president and governors.

In a statement, signed by the Atiku Media Office, Saturday, the former Vice President said he would challenge any procedure, either “consensus arrangement” or “adoption” that is contrary to transparent elections to produce candidates for all elective offices, including the presidency.

Atiku was responding to another kite being flown by Chief Tony Anenih, chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees, who has advocated that the party should give an automatic ticket to President Jonathan in 2015.

The former Vice President recalled that he was repeatedly in courts to challenge this undemocratic arrangement and that the courts ruled that the policy is alien to the PDP and Nigerian constitutions.

Atiku said the principle on which he opposed this unjust policy, which he describes as a “travesty of democracy”, has not changed since then.

Video: Gov Rochas Okorocha Opens Up On Governors Forum Saga

The Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha has expressed displeasure over the crisis that erupted after the Nigeria Governors Forum election that returned the Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Ameachi as the Chairman of the Forum for the next two years.
Lambasting the PDP for their desperation to bring Amaechi down, Okorocha said:
“I can’t imagine it in my life that anybody will come up and say we did not conduct an election. There was a free and fair election and the winner of that election was Amaechi... If you [PDP] don't want Amaechi for some reasons please say so and stop telling lies.”

Warning that the lingering crisis could snowball into something that could consume Nigeria's democracy if not well managed, Governor Okorocha insisted that all Governors must come together and sue for peace and unity for the sake of the nations future.

The governor made the call while speaking at an event in Owerri, the Imo State capital.

Northern Governors Set To Dump Jonathan and PDP

The political atmosphere in Nigeria is highly combustible at the moment and OluFamous has gathered from top political players in Abuja that a powerful tsunami is coming. There is going to be so many casualties in the "explosion" but President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP will most likely be the losers.
My source, an insider, said they are now ready to ensure that PDP crumbles...
In their reaction to the suspension on Monday of Governor Rotimi Amaechi, northern governors on the PDP platform were said to have made "serious" contacts and those of them who are bold enough have decided that the best option is to see to the collapse of the PDP as soon as possible.

My source said the Norther Governors who are ready to move and join the opposition are well aware that it was President Goodluck Jonathan that gave the orders for Amaechi's suspension and information available to them was that some of them will soon be suspended and ridiculed too.

Security Aides Shut Bishops, Nigerian Governors Out Of Achebe’s Burial Service

Overzealous security officers on Thursday shut invited bishops, ministers, as well as state governors out of the burial service of Chinua Achebe.
This happened moments before the arrival of President Goodluck Jonathan, who was accompanied by his Ghanaian counterpart, John Dramani.  At the end of a moving sermon in which he highlighted Achebe’s immortality, Rt. Reverend Ikechi Okafor said that he “deliberately” left the matter till the end of his preaching. “If these priests are not here, Achebe will not be buried.
The security men broke the rule of order of service by locking the bishops outside. Without the men of God, everybody will be seated here doing nothing,” said Rev. Nwosu, the Archbishop of Aba, who represented Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, Primate of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion. While half of the priests were standing at the altar awaiting the others to join them, the other half were locked out alongside Governors Peter Obi and Theodore Orji of Anambra and Abia States respectively.
