There Will Be Bloodshed in 2015 If Jonathan Contest, He Should Leave it For North-Junaid
…Says Jega’s INEC too lousy to guarantee free, fair and credible poll
From: ISMAIL OMIPIDAN, Kaduna
Second Republic member of the House of Representatives and Russian trained Medical Doctor, Junaid Mohammed, has declared that blood would flow on the streets of Nigeria, should President Jonathan insist on running for the presidency in 2015.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Sunday Sun from his base in Kano, the former lawmaker, who chaired the House Committee on International Economic Relations and Socialist Bloc, argued that it was wrong for anyone to suggest that the clamour for power to return to the North in 2015, was coming from the North alone, insisting that there abound more agitators in the South-west, in this regard, than there are in the North, adding that “I can tell you today that there are more agitators in the South-west, for power shift to the North, than there are in the North. And they are doing this because they believe in justice and fairness. If you have faith in a system, you must ensure the system runs fairly and justly too. Apart from the issue of fairness and justice, the South-west knows that it has a lot to lose, should it allow the country to plunge into any political upheaval. Lagos alone, accounts for 45 percent of our national economy, and my friend, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is aware of that notorious fact. So the South-west cannot fold its hands and watch one irresponsible and incompetent leader lead the country into an avoidable political violence. Common sense tells the South-west that it would not be in their interest for this country to convulse again.” Add a comment
APC Spokesman Defends Oshiomhole’s ‘Go And Die’ Comment To Widow
The Interim National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has defended the actions of Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, who came under massive tongue-lash from generality of Nigerians following his comments, which he has since regretted and apologized, that a widow should ‘go and die’.
A video which went viral during the week, showed an unmoved Gov. Oshiomhole, about a fortnight ago, ordering the seizure of some goods belonging to a woman, who was allegedly hawking her wares on the side-walks, in contravention of existing traffic laws, even as she went on her knees, crying and begging for mercy on grounds that she was a widow.
Her claim that she was a widow only seemed to anger the governor, who retorted, “you are a widow, go and die”. Add a comment
We Will Expose 400 Northern Saboteurs – Gov Aliyu
Governor of Niger State Dr Muazu Babangida Aliyu stirred controversy last week, when he threatened to join “other well-meaning northern leaders to expose the 400 elite members who want to sabotage the region’s interest in 2015”.
Consequently, he appealed to the people to be vigilant over the growing rumours that 400 leaders who will be induced financially to compromise the chances of the north in 2015 have been shortlisted.
“We urge all of us to put our hands on deck; we must not allow them to use the electoral laws for some people to collect money. We hear rumours about some people who said that they have the list of about 400 northerners that are going to sell out; they assured that if they have settled those 400 people everything will have been OK.
“We are looking for that list so that we will tell the people that these are the 400 people who are going to sell out. If we don’t get the list, we will know that it is a rumour; if we get it we will print it so that Nigerians will know those selling off our right.” Add a comment

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Edo State Chapter, has visited the widow told by Edo State Governor,
Adams Oshiomhole to 'go and die' in her distress and has promised her 250 thousand Naira to support her business.
It would be recalled that governor Adams Oshiomhole went on a sanitation inspection tour and chanced apron a woman eking out her living by hawking her wares in the street. The governor then ordered his security details and officials to seize the property of the widow. When the widow went on her knees to beg the governor for clemency, stating that those goods were all she had, Oshiomhole told her 'you are a widow, go and die'.
Oshiomhole's comments were particularly disconcerting to the public after the video of the incident went viral with many noting that as a widower himself, he ought to have shown some empathy to the woman's plight.
But with the kind gesture by the PDP,the woman's hope for a future has now been rekindled.
