\"\"

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu says Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the right and best man for the job, as processes begin for who succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari.

Sanwo-Olu, who said 2023 will be a difficult year as Tinubu aspires to be president, stated that it is time to work to ensure all the successes in Lagos is replicated at the national level by helping Tinubu to actualise his goal.

Sanwo-Olu, who said this at the 17th Executive-Legislative parley themed “Mobilizing Citizens as a Social Capital Towards 2023 General Elections”, today, stated that it is the important that all stakeholders work together as one, especially as 2023 approaches.

“There is a whole lot that we can achieve together as a united bloc. Therefore, I enjoin you all to come together and let us rally round our father and leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as he gives the nation’s presidency a shot.

“He has unselfishly given himself to the good people of the state and Nigeria as a whole. This, indeed, as someone has rightly said, is the time to pay him back with our unwavering support. He is, no doubt, the right and best man for the job. He knows the issues plaguing our nation like the back of his hands and he has the magic wand to fix it. I, therefore, urge everyone to come together and rally behind this great man of history. Let us rally behind our great party. Let us speak with one voice. Together, we will give our nation a new lease of life.

I thank you all for listening. God bless you.”

The governor, who noted that the theme for the year’s parley is apt in view of the giant strides that his administration has made in the area of inclusive governance, said: “Without a doubt, the remarkable strides that our administration has attained in the last two and a half years would have been impossible, but for the efforts of everyone gathered here today.

“We have been able to achieve results because of the consistent support that we have received from everyone gathered here. We are in the Greater Lagos project together and your contributions toward the overall success of this administration will never be underestimated.

“From the outset, this administration did not delude itself into thinking it had the monopoly of knowledge with regards to finding the right solutions to the myriad challenges confronting the state. This explains why we have consistently thrown our doors open to diverse opinions and views from various sources, and, this forum is an integral part of our steady effort towards rubbing minds with all critical stakeholders with a view to achieving the Greater Lagos of our collective desire”.

The governor said the goal of his government seeking the input of critical stakeholders through public fora such as the parley is to create strategic ways to determine the means of evolving ideas that will alleviate the sufferings of people and improve their quality of life, as well as their economic development.

“The past year was particularly remarkable for us in our aspiration to improve infrastructure across the state. Many of which have been commissioned, thus giving Lagosians a new lease of life. That is why we christened the audacious Y2022 Budget “Budget of Consolidation”; With this budget, now, more than ever before, our destination is in sight.

This year is a special year for us as an administration, because it will be the final full year of the four-year mandate that Lagosians gave us in 2020.

“Distinguished leaders of our great party, as a forward-looking government, we are more focused on the present and the future than the past, because, no matter the level of successes it had brought to us, the past is no longer as important as the present and the future.

“As a way of attaining the future of our collective aspirations, this administration has remained committed to achieving great success in the various sectors of the economy in line with our T. H. E. M. E. S. Agenda.”

News Update?Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Sitting Begins October 26

Latest Politics updatein nigeria

Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal will on October 26 begin a full hearing of the petition filed by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) against the declaration of Senator Ademola Adeleke as governor-elect.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that the tribunal made this pronouncement after concluding the pre-hearing session on Thursday.

The tribunal was asked to dismiss the applications of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), seeking the discontinuation of the petition brought to it by Governor Oyetola.

Counsel for Oyetola and the APC, Lasun Sanusi, SAN, at the sitting of the tribunal argued that Adeleke’s, PDP’s and INEC’s reliance on a Federal Court High judgment was nothing but an abuse of court process.

Sanusi argued this while replying to separate applications of the trio, seeking the dismissal of the petition based on the already appealed Federal High Court judgment disqualifying Oyetola from contesting the election.

Citing Supreme Court decisions in the case of Jegede Vs INEC, 2021, 14NWLR, Pt 1797, page 409, the counsel said the court had ruled that the signatories to the letter conveying the nomination of a candidate were not the nominators; rather, the nomination was done by party members at the congress, hence, the judgment could not stand.

Meanwhile, the counsel for INEC, Prof. Paul Ananaba, SAN; counsel for Adeleke, Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN and counsel for the PDP, Dr. Alex Izinyon, SAN, agreed that any decision the tribunal would take on the matter would have to wait until the Appeal Court and the Supreme Court decided on it.

They noted that they just decided to argue the applications to have it on record, a position which the tribunal agreed with and put on record.

Also, in other applications totalling nine by the three respondents, they asked the tribunal to strike out some paragraphs of the petition on the grounds that they were either lumped together or not related to the 2022 election.

In response to each of the applications, Sanusi said all the cases cited by the respondents were misconceived, adding that they were not applicable in the instance case.

He cited the case of INEC Vs Otti, 2016, 8NWLR, where the Supreme Court hinted that INEC was supposed to be neutral, arguing that all the processes filed before the panel have not portrayed the commission’s neutrality.

Sanusi further argued that the applications filed by the respondents were only meant to prevent the tribunal from focusing on hearing the petition on merit, asking the panel to dismiss the applications.

Subsequently, counsel for all parties in the matter agreed to begin the full hearing starting with the calling of witnesses on October 26.

In his ruling, the tribunal declared the pre-hearing session concluded and announced that the pre-hearing conference report would be presented on October 17.
