    Tinubu’s departure at Chatham House was embarrassing; He should go home and rest-Atiku

    The Atiku/Okowa Campaign Presidential Campaign Organization has described as shameful the presentation of the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, at Chatham House, London.

    The PDP campaign noted that the exit not only confirmed, but showed Nigerians and the world that the APC candidate had no business contesting the 2023 presidential election.

    Atiku-Okowa's presidential campaign spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, who made this point in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday, alleged that Tinubu intended to transfer the onerous task of leading the nation to proxies and a cabal that did not seek Nigerian votes.

    Ologbondiyan said: “Nigerians, including supporters of the APC presidential candidate, were deeply ashamed to see Asiwaju Tinubu, who previously bluffed with a written speech, go blank on the world stage in a tragic display of emptiness and inability to personally address the questions posed to him about economics. , security and other challenges facing our nation.

    “Our campaign finds it appalling that a candidate who aspires to be president of a nation as complex as Nigeria should exhibit an embarrassing inability to coordinate his own thought process to the point where he could not personally think about and address the issues, but instead that he had to direct them. questions asked of him, including those about his health and politics, for others to answer."

    Maintaining that Nigeria cannot afford to have a president who cannot take responsibility for running the country, Ologbondiyan said that the APC Nominee ended up becoming the butt of international jokes as he could not provide any clues on the issues. critics of economy and security.

    “Asiwaju Tinubu has confirmed to Nigerians and the world that he does not have to contest the 2023 presidential election; that he is grossly incompetent, completely unprepared for leadership and intends to transfer the onerous task of leading our nation to representatives and a cabal that did not seek the votes of Nigerians.

    “Of course, Nigerians cannot afford to have a president who cannot take responsibility for leadership but is intent on shifting the burden to others ostensibly to find scapegoats to blame for his inevitable failings.

    “The APC presidential candidate ended up becoming the butt of international jokes, as he was unable to provide any clues on the critical issues of the economy, security, youth development and foreign policies, despite the notes he they were passed to him at the event by his supervisors.”

    The PDP campaign asked Nigerians to remember that they had earlier warned Bola Tinubu and his handlers not to embarrass our nation by displaying their constant mistakes on the international stage at Chatham House.

    He subsequently ordered Tinubu's controllers to stop embarrassing him by always pressuring him to make public appearances, even when they are aware of his gross incompetence.

    Ologbondiyan stressed that “what Nigerians hope is that the Tinubu/Shettima presidential campaign will apologize to the nation and stop embarrassing its director with misspelled appearances.

    “Now that APC presidential candidate Asiwaju Tinubu has confirmed his lack of preparation and ability in the world state, we urge you to immediately collapse your campaign, stop wasting resources, go home and rest.

    “In any event, Nigerians are determined to support PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, who has continued to exhibit unprecedented leadership ability and readiness, as also seen in his Arise TV town hall meeting.”

    Why I prayed naked for Tinubu on the beach — Actor Olaiya Igwe

    Veteran Nollywood actor Ebun Oloyede, affectionately known as Olaiya Igwe, has broken his silence regarding his viral nude video which has sparked controversy, especially in the Nigerian social media space.

    It should be remembered that Olaiya was seen in a video, naked and praying that the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu wins the next elections.

    The filmmakers generated much controversy for their action, as several Nigerians condemned their act stating that it was unnecessary, shameful and inappropriate.

    In the midst of the controversies, the actor appeared on the popular TVC television program, "Tu Mirada", where he talked about the reason why he was naked on the beach. According to Olaiya, the reason for his action was a spiritual call, he also added that it was a voice that had told him to pray for Tinubu on the beach.

    The actor said, “I was asked to stand up and do it spiritually. I have a gift of revelation from Almighty God. Sometimes, I see what God planned for me before it happens. He was sleeping that day and the voice came to me and he said please get up, you said you love Asiwaju and he has been helping you. I said yes. Get up, go and do this for him.

    In addition, he mentioned that he does not owe anyone an apology. “It was an intentional action because I heard the voice asking me and I don't regret it. I can do anything to support Asiwaju as long as he believes this has nothing to do with anyone else, I can go as far as it takes,” he said.

    Olaiya further debunked various claims that he was paid to do what he did. “I deliberately recorded that event for people to see. It's not for money," the veteran actor clarified.

    Olaiya Igwe is among several other Nollywood actors who have decided to open their support for Bola Ahmed Tinubu, among others; Fausat Balogun, Yinka Quadri, Jide Kosoko, Taiwo Hassan, Faithia Williams, Femi Adebayo, Shola Kosoko, and Saheed Balogun.

    Why I campaigned naked for Tinubu — Olaiya Igwe

    Days after campaigning nude for All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu, Yoruba film star Ebun Oloyede, also known as Olaiya Igwe, has explained the reasons for his actions.

    In an Instagram video, the actor, who once said Mr. Tinubu saved his life after he was diagnosed with nephrolithiasis (kidney stones) without knowing him, invoked the river god amid thunder and lightning.

    His page was initially suspended by Instagram shortly after he posted the video, but the page was later restored with the images still present.

    However, in an interview on the breakfast show 'Tu Vista', which aired on Continental Television on Monday, Olaiya, who did not apologize, gave the reasons for his actions.

    During the interview, Olaiya, who has made headlines for his unusual gratitude to his benefactors Mr. Tinubu and MC Oluomo, said that he was acting on divine instructions.

    According to the actor and theater practitioner, he says he has a gift of revelation from Almighty God and sometimes sees what God plans for him before it happens.

    He said: “I was sleeping that day, and the voice came to me and said, please get up. You said that you love Asiwaju, and he has been helping you.

    "Stand up. Go and do this, this, and this for him. I'm an artist but a little political. But professionally, I'm an artist. So I said okay, as an artist, I can do it."

    Olaiya, who hails from Ogun State, said he could do anything to support Mr Tinubu's candidacy as long as he believes it will not negatively affect others.

    He compared his actions to those of those who visit traditional doctors, known in Yoruba as Babalawo,

    According to the actor, these native doctors sometimes instruct people to follow specific instructions in public places.

    “There is no difference between that and what I did. I did it deliberately, and I have no reason to regret it. When I was in college, they taught us a subject, Mass Communication. They call it individual differences.

    “As long as I'm doing what I'm doing and it can't affect anyone else, I think I have the freedom. So Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu is a big fish in my life. And I know that this will be the president of this significantly great nation, he said.

    no political favors

    Asked if he did it to secure a political appointment or some form of gratuity, the actor said he's been very open about what Tinubu has been doing for him.

    “Whatever the thought, my decision is my decision. I did it deliberately to support Asiwaju. It's a show. I needed to be naked.

    “That was the instruction. I didn't show my private part. I showed my back. I am a theater person. I did not indicate what people expected to see. People are upset about this particular election. Some people who are speaking are from other parties.

    “Asiwaju can be described as a product. I'm a seller. I can sell my product the way I want,” he said.

    He further explained that his actions do not have any religious background.

    “I am an Alhaji, which means I am a Muslim. Islam does not allow that. But forget about religion this time. I heard a voice. Put religion aside for now," Olaiya said.

    Background

    Last Saturday, the veteran actor broke the internet when he made a nude video of himself campaigning for Mr. Tinubu.

    Uploading the video of himself on a beach, the actor offered prayers for Tinubu's victory.

    The video captured the veteran actor from behind, naked. He then turned around and was caught in a headshot while praying to the ocean for Mr. Tinubu's victory.

    Olaiya has been in the Yoruba film industry since the 1970s after joining the Abeokuta-based Musbau Shodimu Theater Organization.

    APC officially flags off Sanwo-Olu’s re-election campaign

    The APC Governorship Campaign Group in Lagos State on Wednesday, officially flagged off the re-election campaign of the incumbent governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu.Speaking at a media briefing to herald the flag-off at Ikeja, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotoso said the theme of the 2023 re-election campaign for Sanwo-Olu and his Deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat is: ”A Greater Lagos Rising!

    ”.

    Omotoso said the theme indicated the continuation of what the present administration promised in 2019 and had been implementing.

    ”We promised our people A Greater Lagos.

    What do we see around us?

    Abundant evidence of a new city rising from the womb of time.

    We do not make a false claim of having reached the zenith of our journey.

    ”Our contextual usage of the word is as an adjective that suggests an upward swing, an increase and an upward movement.

    These are the signs the people of Lagos state can see all around the state,” he said.

    According to him, the campaign is not about Sanwo-Olu and his team alone but it is a tribute to all the youths who are putting Lagos on the global map.

    He said the campaign was a celebration of the collective progress made in the last three and half years, against all odds.

    The commissioner said that from the social motivational perspective, the idea of rising captured the essentialism of the spirit of thousands of ‘creative and tech rebels’ who call Lagos home.

    He said that the creative and technology experts were changing the false narratives about Nigeria with music, movies, fashion, sports and technological innovations, hence, putting Lagos state on the global map.

    According to him, they are the ones helping to announce the rising of Lagos city on distant shores, they are the Made-In-Lagos brands to whom the campaign is also dedicated.

    Also speaking, the Director-General of, the Sanwo-Olu-Hamzat Campaign Committee, Sen. Ganiyu Solomon said that Sanwo-Olu deserved a second term as he had touched on every aspect of his administration’s T.

    H.E.M.E.S developmental agenda.

    ”It is during his time that we witnessed the COVID-19 pandemic, and it was during this time that the EndSARS situation also occurred, and all these did not stop him from performing and from ensuring that the T.

    H.E.M.E.S agenda is followed,” Solomon said.

    The Commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning, Mr Sam Egube said that Lagos had not made any mistake in choosing the right governor.

    “The greater Lagos is indeed rising with Sanwo-Olu. ”When you hear our leaders in the entertainment industry shout for joy, then you know that today that scripture is fulfilled, that when the righteous are in authority that the people shout for joy.

    When we see those things, indeed, we say that Lagos is true, rising.

    ”When we see the health facility, the Mother and Child care centres in Epe, in Ajah, in Badagry, in Igando come alive, you cannot but agree with me that the Greater Lagos which we talked about, is indeed rising.

    Femi Kuti frowns at Tinubu, APC over unauthorised use of Fela song for campaign

    The family of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti frowned at the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its presidential candidate Bola Tinubu for the use of the late artiste’s song for the 2023 election campaign.

    Femi Kuti in a “disclaimer and notice of use without consent” for the Fela Anikulapo-Kuti family said the use of Fela’s popular song “Eko Ile” during one of its campaign activities for their 2023 presidential campaign was unauthorised.

    The Kuti family said it wished to continue to be politically neutral.

    “We the administrators of the estate of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti issue this disclaimer.

    We wish to state here for clarity, that the permission of the estate was not sought for the use of Fela’s music, Eko Ile, in the All Progressives Congress social media campaign currently making the rounds,” Fela Anikulapo-Kuti family said.

    “We do not involve Fela’s music in any political campaign at home or abroad and choose to remain neutral.

    “While we wish all candidates the best, we demand that the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria are abided by and intellectual property rights are duly respected.

    Signed the estate of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.”Tinubu and the members of the APC presidential campaign council held a rally last Saturday at Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos State.

    Fela’s popular song “Eko Ile” was used in a video recap of the rally by Tinubu on Twitter.
