'Buhari and I are not in government to deceive Nigerians'' Osinbajo says

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has said that himself and President Buhari did not come into office to deceive Nigerians and then steal their common wealth. Osinbajo said this when he appeared on a programme on Human Rights radio in Abuja. According to the Vice President, himself and Buhari are in office to better the lives of every Nigerian.

“The focus of our government is on how things can be better for the common man. We are not in the business of trying to deceive Nigerians. You can accuse me and the President of anything, but you will never find us deceiving Nigerians.” he said

Speaking further, Osinbajo said ''The President has ensured that nobody steals money from the treasury. The major problem Nigeria had before now was the fact that people stole from the nation’s coffers. Once the country is able to stop corruption, it would be better.

Presidency reacts to PDP going to court over President Buhari's certificate

The Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has described attempts by the PDP to go to court over the certificate of President Buhari, as a waste of Time. Read a statement he released below

We have read that the failed Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is going to court to challenge the President’s West African School Certificate (WASC).

This is a waste of time because we have the record of this and of higher qualifications obtained by hard work and truly merited by Mr President.

This certificate story is an old one. As Femi Adesina stated clearly, it is a settled issue in the courts. To approach the court to pursue a matter long settled by the temple of justice is an abuse of the judicial system. It is shameful, disgusting and disgraceful.

It is clear to all at this time that the PDP, facing an imminent humiliating defeat wants to sow division and chaos by seeking the destruction of the institutional structures that support our young democracy.

They are attacking the courts and the police, they are molesting INEC commissioners. They are theatrical in spreading falsehoods against persons including the President.

By doing these, they assume that they can take away attention from the discussions on issues gaining momentum in the country; the issue of internal security which has been jeopardized by years of near-zero investment under 16 years of the PDP; the provision of long-delayed infrastructure which the President is pioneering; corruption to which the PDP is incurably tied and the sustenance of the prevailing good days in the economy, a business-friendly government working day and night, creating more jobs and affordable life for the poor.

This election isn’t about the settled issues of certification.

No matter how honeyed their sweet words, don’t believe them.

Their evil record can never be washed away. The PDP set a record of murdering opponents of government and corruption on a scale never seen anywhere before.

They put the national security at stake by diverting huge budgetary allocations to service their greed. Don’t believe their honeyed promises.

A life that makes young people think outside the box, strategize and work smartly hard towards achieving their goals".

On being a woman, she said "Everyone will attest to the fact that women are more meticulous, passionate and make good leaders. I believe this emanates from the usual approach of motherhood duties at home. I may not be able to do a long comparison because they are two different worlds. However I will mention the likes of German chancellor, Angela Merkel who some people have said is using ‘breast milk' to lead not just Germany but the whole E.U. which has earned her the nick name "MUTTI (mom). This, I believe is due to her calm but stern motherly approach to tough issues. She is like a mother to many presidents. British Prime Minister, Theresa May is another example of strength in womanhood especially at these times of lack of sleep (possibly) due to the Brexit crises which I contributed to anyway, when I had an invitation from the UK Independence Party to speak prior to the British referendum.

'There is great anger in our country caused in part by inaccurate, fraudulent, reporting of the news' - President Trump

In the wake of the recent bomb threats against opposition figures in the United States, President Trump has once again blamed the 'Fake News' media for causing the anger in the country.

According to the President, 'there is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame of Anger and Outrage and we will then be able to bring all sides together in Peace and Harmony. Fake News Must End'.

He went on to call out CNN saying, 'CNN and others in the Fake News Business keep purposely and inaccurately reporting that I said the “Media is the Enemy of the People.” Wrong! I said that the “Fake News (Media) is the Enemy of the People,” a very big difference. When you give out false information - not good!'.

'The Fake News is doing everything in their power to blame Republicans, Conservatives and me for the division and hatred that has been going on for so long in our Country. Actually, it is their Fake & Dishonest reporting which is causing problems far greater than they understand!'
