August 13th: Weekly Catch-Up On Naija’s Political Drama: President Buhari Begs ASUU; Wike Mocks PDP Senators; Tinubu Accuses Peter Obi Of Lies

Please Call Off The Strike,” President Buhari Begs ASUU.

The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has pleaded with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and other allied unions to end their strike so that students can return to the classroom.

The appeal was made by President Muhammadu Buhari, through his chief of staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari on Friday at a special convocation ceremony held by the University of Mauduguri to confer an honorary doctorate degree on business tycoon Alhaji Muhammadu Indimi.

President Buhari said, “I want to use this opportunity to appeal to the ASUU to reconsider its stance to call off their 7 months old strike, as students and their parents are desirous to see that schools are reopened. The nation cannot afford long interruption of higher education of the youths and wouldn’t undermine the development of the nation’s human capital in a strictly competitive world.”

With this current development, it appears the government’s ultimate move to end the long-lasting strike is begging.

“You Don’t Have The Balls,” Wike Tells PDP Senators.

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has thrown shades at some senators who called for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari from office.

Wike claimed that the senators, who belong to his party (PDP), advocating for Buhari’s removal lacked the “balls” necessary to carry out their plan.

On Friday, Wike gave a speech at the launching of the House of Assembly members’ official residence in Rivers State.

The governor said: “The truth has to be told at all times; today they are talking of impeaching Buhari but overriding the Electoral Act, they can’t.

“They don’t have the balls, and I told them they can’t talk.

“They think they can use Nigerians up and down, something you know you can’t do; why say it out?”

It is believed that Wike’s comment may have been stirred up by his never-ending conflict with the PDP’s 2023 presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Tinubu Blames Obi For Spreading Lies; Obi Responds.

Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party, to warn his supporters against spreading false information about him.

A few days ago, a story came out on the internet, saying that the president of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo asked Asiwaju to step down to support Peter Obi and care for his health.

The President then refuted the story on his official Twitter account, labelling it as false news and claiming it was the result of deliberate mischief with the intention of misleading the public.

Speaking on behalf of Asiwaju, Bayo Onanuga, the Director of Media and Communications for the Tinubu Campaign Organization (TCO), reacted by asking Obi to disavow his supporters for spreading false information on the former governor of Lagos State.

He said, “We have come to a point where it becomes imperative to tell Obi to show leadership and disavow his supporters who are employing fake news and disinformation as deliberate tools to deceive and poison the minds of unsuspecting Nigerians.”

Responding to the accusations, Obi through his Media Adviser Valentine Obienyem, stated that some of his opponents create fraudulent stories, published them under false identities, and blame it on him or his followers.

He stated that “Nigerians know the truth and that such gimmicks used to deceive them would no longer work.”
