Accept outcome of elections, Sultan charges Jonathan, Buhari




A TOP Islamic organisation in the North, Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) under the leadership of the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, has urged both President Goodluck Jonathan and the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Major-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), to accept the outcome of the election in good faith in order to deepen democracy in Nigeria.

In the same vein, the Sultan called on other political office seekers to avoid any political wrangling that may plunge the nation into crisis during the polls.

In a statement by the JNI Secretary General, Sheikh Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, the Sultan remarked: “JNI implores the political gladiators to take the outcome in good faith and be sportsmanly,” saying: “This is so because, if Allah spares our lives, we shall witness many more elections in Nigeria.

“The polity should not be overheated and the fragile peace in Nigeria should not be jeopardised. All forms of irregularities should be appropriately directed to the competent courts of law, which is in tandem with best-known practices across the globe.

“In the same vein, all Jumu’ah mosques Imams are implored to centre their respective Khutbah-sermons for this coming Friday, March 27 on violence free election and offer special prayers to that effect.”

JNI also called on parents, guardians and other stakeholders to monitor their children and wards before, during and after the elections.

Meanwhile, the chairman of Arewa community in Lagos, Alhaji Kabiru Ahmed, has alleged that thugs suspected to be Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) supporters were behind recent attack on Hausas in Lagos State.

However, reacting to the allegation, Lagos State PDP Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, said it was a sponsored blackmail by the APC and challenged the party to provide proof.

Ahmed, who disclosed this yesterday while addressing newsmen at the All Progressives Congress (APC) secretariat in Lagos, said that the attacks weres a result of the support given by Arewa to the APC in the coming general elections.

According to him, “Since we had the mega rally at the Agege Township Stadium, there have been incessant attacks on Arewa people in Lagos.”

Gani said: “APC is jittery because of the elections, they are the ones killing themselves. They should leave us out of it, we are more concerned about the coming polls”

still on the election, an Igbo group under the aegis of Association for the Defence of Igbo Interest in Lagos (ADIIL) has called on Igbo indigenes not to be deceived by the PDP that their interest will be protected if Jonathan is re-elected.

While addressing journalists in Lagos, Chairman of the group, Prof. Chris Nwaokobia said the PDP-led Federal Government is frantically inciting Ndigbo to fight their hosts, the Yoruba for selfish interest of winning the election.

    “Aisha Buhari was born on September 29, 1979. As
    of today, Mrs. Buhari is only 35 years of age. She was married to Buhari in
    August 13, 1989, at the age of 9. This means that Buhari at age 47, in 1989 was
    having sex with Aisha Buhari at the tender age of 9, an underage according to
    the constitution of Nigeria. So Mrs. Buhari is a victim of sustained childhood
    rape and her outbursts are understandable”, she said. Speaking further, Mrs.
    Obozuwa said: “How Buhari got Aisha Buhari pregnant at age 13 is a chilling
    story of a Buhari who defiled Aisha as a little child while she was visiting
    Zulai, Buhari’s eldest daughter who was her playmate. It is ironic how such a
    traumatized woman now stands at the vanguard of stigmatizing fellow women…Calling Edo women prostitute.

      He is a pedophile then. Child molester, dictator and autocratic leader. He forgot something that he was coming back for after 32 years cow. What does Aisha knows as to insult the whole women of Edo state.

    There should be no cause for alarm, It should not be individual targets but all corrupt officials should be ready to face the music. My concern is the ability to do and keep the covenants made with the whole Nigerians, for I believe in the ability of General Buhari as God had previously helped him along with Idiagbon to do the unthinkable good job by eradicating corruption and indiscipline. Now that there is no more Idiagbon, I
    am hoping that Osinbajo will propel the action that will surpass Idiagbon’s
    achievements. It is possible to eradicate corruption by recovering the stolen funds in cash and assets of those culprits and utilize it in fixing power, to tackle insurgency, revive agriculture, for good education-by making sure that children of everybody in power keep their children in Nigeria schools, infrastructure, revamp health system by
    ensuring that nobody including you go abroad for treatment. To also ensure that
    we refine our petroleum in Nigeria and stop importation thereby reducing fuel pump per liter to N50 for petrol N40 for diesel and N30 for kerosene.

    To deal with corruption in such a way that, there will be no more kickbacks and over-invoicing in all the contracts to be awarded, to also ensure that fake or substandard products are eliminated from our markets and to
    send strong signals to countries that are known for cheap and substandard
    products to desist from allowing such products to be exported to Nigeria.

    To curb extortions from Police, FRSC, Army and any other law
    enforcement agencies (To establish special Patrolling Task Force) to arrest any

    To foster independent/special court for EFCC & ICPC in
    order to accelerate trials of corrupt officials and to instill fear that will
    scare people away from any forms of corrupt practices.

    There is urgent need to change currency because a lot of
    Government officials must have stuffed the embezzled monies underground, in the
    tank, in the ceiling e.t.c.

    All Government landed properties and Treasures taken over or
    cheaply awarded to cronies should be recovered in all the three ties of

    This will just mark the beginning of a new era of freedom to
    press, religion and association in a tranquility environment that is free from

    The man had spoken and it shall be so, the source of the
    funds is so simple, it is just to recover all the funds stolen by corrupt men
    and women at the helm of affairs since 1980, by seizing their assets and funds
    tashed away in the foreign accounts, in ZURISH, UK, DUBAI,USA, SOUTH AFRICA,
    even the mansions buit with stolen money in LEKKI, VGC, IKOYI,ABUJA, PH,
    REFINERIES in African countries, apart from private jets, shares acquired in

    Buhari MUST be counselled to accept the outcome of the elections if he looses. No more killing of Youth Corp volunteers and the destruction of properties of the Ibos in the North. Our people are often scared of telling the truth. Buhari’s antecedents show that he is always a grumpy looser. His disposition is to always stand by and watch his thugs maim and kill whenever he looses an election. Jonathan, on the other hand, has stated over and over again that no elective office is worth the blood of innocent Nigerians. Why are our people unable to distinguish between light and darkness?
