I’m Listed On INEC Portal, Sowore Insist

Published

on

Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate for the African Action Congress, has reacted to the Independent National Electoral Commission’s assertion that his name has not been uploaded to the portal of the electoral body.

The FidelinfoNews gathered this was refuted by Sowore in a video on Wednesday, pointing out that it was untrue that his name was missing from INEC’s portal.

Recall that two political parties’ nominations for the 2023 presidential election had not yet been uploaded, according to a previous statement from INEC.

Festus Okoye, National Commissioner of INEC in charge of Information and Voter Education Committee, named the AAC and the New Nigeria People’s Party as the two parties.

Reacting, Sowore said, “It will be very clear this has nothing to do with the presidential candidate and his vice. That has been submitted and resolved and their names have been published all across the country, in INEC’s offices in the states.

We are just trying to let you know this is not correct, we have submitted over 60 candidates across Nigeria who are going to be running the election under the banner of the AAC. There is nothing to panic about and we hope INEC will take note of this and ensure that they contact us in advance or check their records before they go out and say the AAC has not submitted names.”

Sowore stated that new names of other candidates contesting other positions had even been sent to INEC, noting that he was even at the INEC’s office today to meet with the director in charge of political parties.

“We are the party of the future. We are going to beat all these guys, that is why they are putting all kinds of propaganda out there,” he added.

2023: Kwara PDP and Fake Campaign Promises- Adebayo Faruk

Published

on

Since political campaigns have begun proper, the Kwara state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has made series of fake campaign promises that Kwarans have welcomed with derision. The recent one was made by the state Publicity Secretary Mr. Tunji Moronfoye. He said PDP would restore the dignity of civil servants if given the opportunity to govern the State in 2023. In the release, he accused the Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq-led administration of making mess of civil servants’ dignity.

It’s public knowledge that it was Tunji Moronfoye’s PDP that made mess of the dignity of the state’s civil servants. PDP treated civil servants like overused clothes and made them suffer for being diligent and patriotic. It was in the Saraki’s inglorious 20 years that the civil servants were made to work for 30 days only to be paid geri-gedi salaries (amputated salaries), and sometimes no pay at all. Still, workers dare not protest the inhumaneness. Of course, Kwara PDP ruled with iron fist.

Kwara PDP didn’t only owe civil servants salaries, it also halted their promotions. PDP was in power when APC-led federal government implemented the N30,000 minimum wage but it didn’t implement it because it’s committed to desecrating the dignity of the civil servants.

Thanks to Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for revamping the dignity of civil servants since he assumed office. The civil servants are no longer in doubt if they would receive their full salaries at the end of the month. The current state government pays salaries as and when due. It implemented the N30,000 minimum wage PDP couldn’t implement. It’s promoting civil servants who are due for promotion. To encourage state’s workers, this government offers the best civil servants gifts and prizes, including a motor car.

If Mr. Tunji Moronfoye wants to be sincere with Kwarans and do away with fake campaign promises, he’ll acknowledge that the AbdulRazaq-led administration is delivering on its campaign promises to civil servants. It’s a known fact that civil servants have been better under the current state government compared to under the Saraki led People’s Democratic Party.

Like other PDP’s fake campaign promises, Tunji Moronfoye has hinted civil servants that the PDP government would return them to the sorry state Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq met them from by returning to former Governor Ahmed’s legacy of geri-gedi. This is more reason why Kwarans and most especially civil servants shouldn’t vote to have a PDP government that will inflict pains on them and comfort its party loyalists with their salaries.
