SDP Will Be In Aso Rock In 2023 – Falae



The founding chairman of the Social Democratic Party, Chief Olu Falae, on Thursday said that the party has what it takes to win the 2023 general elections.

The FidelinfoNews reports that Falae stated this at the official inauguration of the party’s new National Secretariat in Abuja on Thursday.

He said that when he decided to revive the party, some people thought it was impossible, but today the party had grown in number and strength across the country.

“SDP is the only party with right technology, philosophy and manifesto. We deserve to rule Nigeria and by the grace of God, we will be there.

“We have a good presidential candidate in the person of Adewole Adebayo who has not only demonstrated his knowledge of law but history, anthropology, architecture and other fields.

We need someone with broad mind and education like Adebayo to lead our country.

“The party may not have a governor today, but I have no doubt that SDP will be in Aso Rock and become governors in many states in 2023,” Falae said.

He commended the party leadership for its achievements, urging them to continue to bring back those who left the party and new members to work together to win the 2023 general elections.

Falae decried the rate at which many young men and professionals including doctors were leaving Nigeria to seek greener pastures.

“If we do not restructure and revive Nigeria, more and more young people will desert the country,” Falae said.

He said that with Adebayo as SDP presidential candidate, Nigerians have the chance to elect a president that would restructure and chart a new course for the country.

In his remarks, the SDP presidential candidate, Prince Adewole Adebayo, expressed his commitment to be a better president that would deliver good governance and democracy to Nigeria when elected.

Adebayo said that when elected, he would deliver victory to Nigerians in form of sound medical care, security and education.

“If you want to know if I will be a better president, look at the decisions that I have taken.

Of all the money bags and peoples of claim titles I have chosen a youth, a leader of change, dynamic person, banker, economist and proven integrity, Yusuf Buhari as my running mate.

SDP has the young person as the national chairman who represents the future.

“I am telling Nigerians that the alternative you have been looking for is here. The excuse that you don’t have a choice is gone.”

He advised Nigerians not to listen to pundits on the 2023 general elections saying the outcome of the election would surprise many.

The SDP National Chairman, Alhaji Shehu Gabam, said that the SDP is a moving train determined to win the 2023 general elections.

“I don’t see any party defeating the SDP, unless we are not committed. The array of our gubernatorial candidates who have contested elections before is overwhelming.

If you mention any of them, people know them and they will win for SDP. We don’t concede defeat. There is no defeat in our dictionary.”

Gabam urged party members to forget their personal issues and work together to save Nigeria.

He described the new building as a demonstration of prudent management of the party’s meagre resources by its leadership.

Gabam said it was also a demonstration that SDP would manage Nigeria’s resources well and that the party was ready for the 2023 general elections.

Alhaji Tanko Yakasai, the former Liaison Officer to President Shehu Shagari, urged the party leaders and members to go back to the grassroots and mobilise support for SDP and its candidates.

Yakasai, who was represented by the SDP gubernatorial candidate in Adamawa State, Dr Umar Ardo, advised the party to take advantage of the new Electoral Act 2022, to win elections for the party.

“2022 electoral act is an opportunity for the SDP to mobilise for the party. There is no more room for rigging and vote allocation has been tackled,” Yakasai said. (NAN).

Binani Applauds Decision To Declare Adamawa Gubernatorial Election Inconclusive



The All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in Adamawa State, Aishatu Ahmed Dahiru, popularly known as Binani, has applauded the Independent National Election Commission for its decision to declare the gubernatorial election in the state as inconclusive.

Fidel Info reports that The 18th of March election was declared inconclusive on the 20th of March by the state collation officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Muhammadu Mele of the University of Maiduguri, due to the irregularities in the votes margin.

The incumbent Governor Ahmadu Fintiri and the candidate of the the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), polled 421,524, while Binani polled 390,275.

He said, “Elections were not held in 47 wards, affecting 69 polling units. So, this gives us a margin of 31,249. The total number of PVCs collected in places where elections were not held amounted to 37,016.”

Binani alleged that violence and irregularities were recorded in 16 of the 21 local government areas (LGAs) in the state, hence the decision to declare the elections inconclusive was just.

“My position is that the INEC REC did very well by declaring the result inconclusive and my reasons are simple,” she said on Friday during a monitored programme on Channels Television .

“Whoever saw or monitored the election of Adamawa State knows that the election was marred with violence, rigging, over-voting and all manner of irregularities.”

“The figures that were deposed were really, as far as I’m concerned, concocted figures.”

According to her, several of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) devices were bypassed, allowing for over-voting and intimidation of electoral staff in a number of locations.

“[For instance] if the BVAS accredited only 10 people, you’ll find out that over 30 people must have voted. That is part of irregularities,” she added.

According to her, the only way for the Resident Electoral Commission (REC) to “come out clean” was to declare that result inconclusive.

Citing the Electoral Act, she argued that INEC has the powers to review the results within seven days to determine whether any declaration was made under duress or where it failed to comply with the electoral laws and regulations.

“I’m never afraid, but all I’m asking is that let INEC please conduct a review on this said local governments so that it will bring out the real figures for all the candidates,” the APC candidate said when asked if she was worried about winning the rerun.

“That is all I am asking, and as soon as that is done, we would be home and dry, and then we would be confident to go back to the field.”

On the possibility of becoming the first elected female governor, Ahmed said she feels great and happy.

“I’m not doing this for Binani; I’m not doing this for myself. I’m doing it for every girl child in this country. It’s for all the women in Nigeria,” she added.

BREAKING: Adeleke Reinstated As Osun State Governor



Ademola Adeleke has been reinstated as governor of Osun state once again by the court of appeal in Abuja.

Fidel Info reports that A three-member panel of justices ruled in Adeleke’s appeal on Friday, concluding that the electoral tribunal erred in finding that Gboyega Oyetola and the All Progressives Congress had proven their claim of excessive voting.

Adeleke is the legitimately elected governor of the state, according to the jury that rendered its decision on Friday.

The Osun governorship election tribunal, in January, held that Oyetola was able to prove that there was over-voting in some of the polling units.

Consequently, the majority judgment of the tribunal ordered INEC to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Adeleke and issue a fresh one to Oyetola as the duly elected governor of Osun.

Dissatisfied with the ruling, Adeleke appealed the judgment.
