Breaking: Arewa New Agenda congratulates Tinubu, blasts Obasanjo
By Nasir Dambatta
The Arewa New Agenda, (ANA) has congratulated Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for winning the 2023 presidential election, while warning.
The group also warned former president Olusegun Obasanjo against truncating the democracy of the country with inciting press releases.
While describing Obasanjo’s administration as the worstdemocratic adherence to processes and procedures, the group fingered him as the reason the PDP became a disdainful outcast with no respect for the rule of law and internal democracy. The group said he was the chief architect of the collapse of the PDP as a formidable party and therefore, posit that he represents the worst advocate of political righteousness.
In a statement by the convener of the group, Sen. Ahmad Abubakar Moallahyidi, he urged all Nigerians to close ranks and support the in coming administration to take the country to greater heights
He also called on the good people of Nigeria to disassociate themselves from the inciting press release by former President Obasanjo as he is trying to undermine democracy that people have labored for since the commencement of the release of guidelines by INEC for the 2023 national elections as this is unacceptable, we encourage all and sundry who have issues to seek redress through laid processes.”
He challenged the former president to explain how Tinubu rigged and called to deliver Lagos. He added that “Ganduje couldn’t deliver Kano, El-Rufai couldn’t deliver Kaduna, Buhari couldn’t deliver Katsina; APC Chairman couldn’t deliver Nasarawa; Ahmed Lawan couldn’t deliver Yobe; Lalong couldn’t deliver Plateau and even lost his senatorial bid; Philip Aduda couldn’t deliver Abuja; South East Governors lost in South East, is this same election that you are vilifying as a corrupted process?
“Food for thought: Peter Obi wins Tinubu’s Lagos Atiku wins Buhari’s Katsina
Tinubu did not even win Osun, Atiku did
Kwankwaso wins Ganduje’s Kano Peter Obi wins Abdullahi Sule’s Nasarawa Atiku wins Mai Mala’s Yobe.
“What other transparency can be better than this? We of the Arewa New Agenda commend President Buhari for opening up the space for everyone to exercise his/her franchise and discharge his responsibility to the nation by voting freely. We encourage the INEC Chairman and his hardworking staff to remains stead fast and undaunted in this national assignment.
Senator Moallahyidi however commended security men and women for holding the country together to ensure peaceful election of Feb 25th 2023.
“We look forward to seeing another successful outing on March 11th 2023.
Finally, we suggest that Chief Obasanjo consider being circumspect in his speeches lest he misleads the public into assuming that he has anything good to offer.”
