Nigeria’s 2023 presidential election which was held on Saturday, 25th of February 2023 is arguably one of the most controversial elections that have taken place in the African continents recently. The candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu emerged as the winner of the election in the most questionable way, and till now, there are still several court cases portraying uncertainty about his rule as president of Nigeria. In Nigeria, religion is always a huge factor when it comes to elections and we all saw how that played out in the recently concluded elections with several prophets giving prophecies about who will win the election, how the winner would emerge, and some of the circumstances that will surround the victory of whoever wins. Arguably, there were more than 50 Prophets from mega-churches that gave their predictions regarding the election but among all, Primate Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church stood out with the unique presentation of his prophecies on the presidential election. Unlike others whose prophecies favored either Tinubu, Atiku or Peter Obi, Primate Ayodele’s prophecy neither favored anyone nor put any of the candidates in a bad light. Primate Ayodele gave a detailed explanation of how the three of them can win, he analyzed the region, strategies, and characters that can give them victory in the election. As a matter of fact, Primate Ayodele started talking about the presidential election one year ago, hence, there were several prophecies he released up until the election eve when he declared God’s choice for Nigeria. However, one of his prophecies that stood out among the other ones was captured in a video shared on his social media account. In the video, he was heard talking about how desperate and ready Tinubu was while alerting the opposition parties to immediately wake up to avoid being cheated and

Engr Razaq Obe, the Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources in Ondo State, has appealed to the Federal Government and president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to sustain the Presidential Power Initiative (PPI). He made this call in an interview with Outlook Media on Thursday at the just concluded Nigeria International Energy Summit in Abuja (NIES2023). According to him, the federal government must fulfill its promise to significantly improve the country’s power sector. He noted that realising the PPI would impact Nigeria’s power sector meaningfully. Obe said the country’s power supply capacity would increase from 4 gigawatts to 25 gigawatts if the initiative is fully implemented. “The presidential power initiative is one of the most successful initiatives by this current government. We want to encourage the incoming government to ensure that by 2025, the 25 gigawatts promised is delivered to Nigerians. “We are happy to see all those transformers coming from Germany to Nigeria; we are happy to see them installed at different substations. We are appealing to the federal government to make this come through. It will grow Nigeria’s available power from 4 gigawatts to 25 gigawatts which will be a quantum leap for our country. We appeal to the federal government not to relent”. This year’s NIES with the theme, ‘Global Perspectives for a Sustainable Energy Future’ kick-started on the 16th and ended on the 20th of April 2023. The PPI is a £63 million deal between the federal government and Siemens to boost Nigeria’s power capacity. The Federal Executive Council approved it in December 2021.

As the race for the leadership of the incoming 10th National Assembly in both the Senate and the House of Representatives gathers momentum, strong indication has emerged Senator Godswill Akpabio may have dropped his ambition to run for Senate President.In the alternative, Akpabio has decided to pursue a ministerial appointment in the cabinet of the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. It will be recalled that Akpabio, a former Minority Leader of the Senate and immediate past minister of Niger Delta Affairs in the government of President Muhammadu Buhari resigned his portfolio following the provision of section 84 (12) of the Electoral Act of 2022 to contest the presidential primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC). But at the convention ground, Akpabio stepped down for Tinubu’s who later won the party’s ticket and also went ahead to win the keenly co-tested February 25, 2023 presidential election.Vanguard gathered from reliable sources within the party hierarchy and the National Assembly on Sunday Akpabio’s decision to drop his Senate presidential ambition was informed by the decision of the party to zone the slot to the South East. One of the sources who pleaded anonymity said that barring any last minute eventuality, the party leadership will soon announce the zoning arrangements of all the presiding and principal offices both in the Senate and the House. The source said that Akpabio who was also a former Akwa-Ibom State Governor has since escalated consultations to return his ministerial position specifically the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs where he resigned from in May 2022 to contest for the APC Presidential primaries. Another possible push is also in the Ministry of petroleum where it was learnt the governor minister had vested interest too. It was learnt that the Senate-elect has since informed his loyalists to tone down their campaign for his senate presidential ambition in
Nigeria's President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is one of God's gift to Nigeria, the most populous black nation on earth, Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, has said. Dr. Obasa said this in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Eromosele Ebhomele, congratulating Tinubu who clocked 71 on Wednesday, March 29, 2023. The Speaker said Tinubu, 'a puzzle too hard to crack', equates with great men around the world whose stories show great passion and undying love for their countries and citizens. According to him, the recent presidential election won by Asiwaju Tinubu is an icing on the cake for the President-elect, who has never shied away from being of service to God and humanity. The Speaker recalled the sacrifice Tinubu made to take Nigeria back from the military and entrench democracy in the country, noting how difficult it is to find individuals with such level of patriotism. "For a man whose thought at all times is about salvaging the country from economic and social bondage, victory at the recent polls came at the right time. "There is no way Nigeria's political story can be written without Asiwaju featuring prominently as a result of the positive roles he played before the current democratic dispensation and up till this moment. "We believe that Almighty Allah has a reason for giving him to us in Nigeria, especially at this time of the nation's journey. We have no doubt in his capacity to deliver. He has done it before. "With a birthday that comes exactly two months to his oath-taking as President of Nigeria, it is not out of place to say Asiwaju is a blessing to us, one sent to put things right and lay the foundation upon which modern Nigeria would be built. "On behalf of my family, members, staff and management of the
...Says 2023 Election Free, Credible Members of the Lagos State House of Assembly on Monday congratulated Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kashim Shettima for winning what lawmakers described as a free and credible 2023 presidential election. The House also congratulated Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Deputy Governor Obafemi Hamzat while calling Speaker Obasa a 'record breaker' for being re-elected a sixth time to represent Agege Constituency 1 at the House. The lawmakers further resolved to send congratulatory messages to the President-elect, the Governor of Lagos State, and the elected members of the National Assembly, while the House would send a commendation letter each to President Muhammadu Buhari, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the security agencies for their roles at ensuring a peaceful general election, especially in Lagos State. While commending the electorate for voting during the exercise, the House further admitted that the election has become an opportunity for elected official to learn some lessons going forward. "I think this is an opportunity for our political scientists to x-ray the situation. This was an election where some sitting governors lost to opposition. "The election has come and gone but there is a need to look again at ourselves to see what we have left undone and what we need to sustain, how we can manage the social contract we have with the people," he said. Dr. Obasa noted that even the United States that is considered a leading democracy still conducts elections that some some candidates challenge as not perfect. "I am saying this to those who have been beating drums of war and anger. We must learnt to endure and accept the outcomes of election but that does not mean we cannot legally challenge the outcome. We need to be more patriotic, we have a nation that we must protect, we have had an election and
The Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, [APC] Presidential Campaign Council (APC-PCC) and Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Finance, Hon. James Abiodun Faleke, has made it known that his decision not to participate in the 2023 gubernatorial race in Kogi state was out of national interest. A group of Kogites from the three senatorial districts had put money together to purchase governorship nomination form for Hon. Faleke last month, urging him to throw his hat into the ring as the most acceptable candidate at the moment. But Faleke in a chat with Journalists on Sunday, urged those that bought the form for him not to lose hope of a better Kogi without him, adding that he will still add value to the state in many other ways. “I am of the opinion that my personal interest must not override that of national interest. I, alongside several other supporters worked hard for the election of our leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as President-elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It would be out of place for me to jump out of the team to start pursuing personal goals. “The people that bought form on my behalf meant well and I appreciate them and I am pleading with them and my other numerous supporters in Kogi State to see the larger picture and to note that I am still with them in spirit, body and soul and will continue to contribute to the development of the state,” he concluded.
Nigeria’s President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has travelled to Paris in France to undertake rest, lesser hajj, his spokesman, Tunde Rahman has said. “After a very exhaustive campaign and election season, President-elect, Asíwájú Bola Tinubu, has travelled abroad to rest and plan his transition programme ahead of May 29, 2023 inauguration,” Rahman said in a statement on Wednesday. According to him, the President-Elect left the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ikeja for Europe on Tuesday night. “The President-elect decided to take a break after the hectic campaign and election season to rest in Paris and London, preparatory to going to Saudi Arabia for Umrah (Lesser Hajj) and the Ramadan Fasting that begins Thursday. “While away, the President-Elect will also use the opportunity to plan his transition programme.”
The Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council has described the endorsement of the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi by former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, as ‘Worthless’. The statement signed by Bayo Onanuga, its director of Media and Publicity, called on Nigerians not to take the endorsement ‘serious’. The statement read; “We read with amusement the endorsement of Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party Presidential Candidate by former President Olusegun Obasanjo in his New Year message on Sunday.” “Following calls by journalists from various media houses who asked for our reaction we decided to make this preliminary statement, though we didn’t consider the so-called endorsement to be of any value.” “We respect the democratic right of former President Obasanjo to support and endorse any candidate of his choice in any election.” “Except that he made it known formally in his new year message, any discerning political watcher in Nigeria knows that Chief Obasanjo’s preference for Peter Obi is expected. He had earlier stated his position at various public events, the last being at the 70th birthday anniversary of Chief John Nwodo, former President of Ohaneze Ndigbo in Enugu.” “We make bold to say that our party and candidate, Asíwájú Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not lose sleep over Obasanjo’s move, as Obasanjo is notorious for always opposing progressive political forces, as he did against MKO Abiola in 1993.” “The endorsement is actually worthless because the former President does not possess any political goodwill or leverage anywhere in Nigeria to make anyone win a Councillorship election let alone win a Presidential election. He is a political paperweight.” “He is also not a democrat anyone should be proud to be associated with.” “We recall that in 2003 and 2007 general elections when he was a sitting President, Obasanjo used all the coercive instruments of State at his disposal to railroad people into
