2019 election: Shekarau to seek PDP’s presidential ticket

A former governor of Kano state, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, has declared his interest in contesting for the presidency in the 2019 general elections under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Shekarau, 62, who is also the immediate past minister of education, said in an open letter, that his decision to seek for PDP’s presidential ticket was informed by clarion calls from Nigerians and after wide consultations.

Part of the letter stated: “As you may be aware, for quite some time now, since after the 2015 general elections, there have been various calls made by individuals and groups from many quarters, nationwide, urging my humble candidature for the contest of the presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the next general elections, due in 2019.

“I strongly believe that the people are doing so out of their conviction of contentment and satisfaction based upon the modest successes recorded while I served as the governor of Kano state (2003 to 2011), and also as a minister of education (July 2014 – May 2015).

Shekarau seeks to get the PDP ticket to challenge President Buhari in the 2019 presidential contest.


“In response to these calls, and in view of the seeming intricacies and the boundless complexities involved in such a national assignment, I have consulted across the geopolitical zones and different interest groups, who examined and appraised the issue and advised me accordingly.

“I am pleased to say, based on these wide consultations, that I am better informed and convinced that participating in the democratic process of serving humanity goes beyond party affiliations/boundaries, and also beyond just winning an election.

“I have therefore decided to accept the clarion calls, and will in due course and in accordance with the guidelines of my party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), offer my humble self for the contest of the presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria during the forthcoming 2019 general elections.”

With the declaration, Shekarau has joined the likes of former minister of special duties; Kabiru Turaki, former Vice President; Atiku Abubakar, Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo of Gombe state, former Kaduna State governor; Ahmed Makarfi and former Senate President, David Mark, among others who are reportedly seeking PDP’s presidential ticket.

Meanwhile, the national financial secretary of the PDP, Abdullahi MaiBasira has expressed optimism that his party will have a successful outing in the 2019 general elections. He stated this during an interactive session with select journalists in his office in Abuja.

The immediate past national youth leader of the party used the opportunity to advise whoever emerges the PDP’s presidential candidate in 2019 to hit the ground running immediately.

Until his sudden departure to glory on Sunday, July 1959, Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola showed no sign of illness. On Friday 24 July, he returned to Ibadan to attend the general council’s meeting slated for that day. On Saturday morning, July, Apostle Babalola conducted the morning prayer for ministers and members living in the vicarage of C.A.C. Olugbode, Ibadan and prayed for everybody. The same day, he sent two of his followers, Michael and another fellow to me at Ede that I should prepare a place for him to sleep. I never knew he was talking about his final sleep. Apostle Ayo Babalola arrived Ede around 6:30 in the evening that Saturday and he was gladly received. Before his arrival, I had prepared my bedroom ready for him. We ensured that nobody was allowed to rush into the bedroom with him; for it was Apostle Babalola’s habit that he never turned away anybody who came to him for prayer and counseling, no matter how weary he might be. After prayer, I informed him that his meal was ready. He declined to take any meal but requested to be allowed to have some sleep, because he had been holding series of meetings for the past nine days with little or no rest. He woke up three hours later and took some tea and slept off again. At 4 a.m. on Sunday, he woke up, took his bath, took some tea and had his morning meditation without any disturbance. At 6 o’clock, I went to him in the bedroom and he began to talk about a great convention which will soon be held in his hometown, Odo-Owa. He was speaking in parables, so I did not suspect that he was talking about his approaching death. He directed me to call in Prophet Babajide who was in the adjacent room. Both of us knelt down beside his bed and he began to narrate to us how he began his ministry. It was such a sublime experience. Both of us just listened; we did not utter a single word during the course of his narration. After this, we knelt down for prayer. The three of us prayed. I took the lead. Prophet Babajide followed. When it was Apostle Babalola’s turn to pray, he prayed for a very long time, praying for the church, the leaders and for us too. After the special service, people came to Apostle Babalola in my bedroom and bid him farewell before leaving for their various destinations with joy and humor. He bid everyone farewell and prayed for them. Nobody suspected through his speech or action that death was lurking in the corners. We left him alone to attend to those who were waiting to see him. Meanwhile, Michael Osabi and Samuel Oluwatusin, the two young men who used to wait on him, remained with him as he took a nap. When he woke up, he called me and returned my covering-cloth to me. His action surprised me and I asked, “Baba, why are you doing this?” He replied, “A man should sleep with his own clothes.” It did not occur to me that he was speaking of his imminent death. He advised me to go and have some sleep myself. By then, everybody else had gone to church for the evening service. Around 5 p.m. as he lay on the bed, Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola breathed heavily three times, saying after, “in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” His breathing was like the rumbling of a rain-storm and there was a great vibration in the bedroom. As this was happening, his personal attendants (Michael and Samuel) ran to call me to his bedside before he gave up the ghost. We began to pray and quickly sent for the church leaders who had gone to church for the evening service. We all prayed for his restoration. But while this prayer was on, the Lord opened my spiritual eyes to see what was happening in the heavenlies. The heavenly hosts had come to meet this great prophet and joyfully admitted him into the glory above. He had laid down his sword at Jesus’ feet. So he could not return to earth again. The church leaders and the elders who were presently arranged for Apostle Babalola’s corpse to be taken to Efon-Alaaye that same night

  • Don’t call someone more than twice continuously. If they don’t pick up your calls, that means they have something more important to attend to, or they are not near their phones at that time.


  • When your colleague/ classmate/ team-mate, neighbor, gets shouted at,  please don’t stare at them. It makes the moment twice awkward.


  • When someone drops something on the floor by mistake,  drops food from the plate or doesn’t know how to use a knife/fork don’t stare at them. The same goes for people sneezing, coughing or even letting out an uncontrollable fart. They are all involuntary actions.


  • Always skip using the washroom beside the occupied one. It makes it uneasy for the person in the occupied washroom as well as yourself if you occupy the one right next to theirs.


  • Return money that you have borrowed even before the other person remembers that he lent it to you, be it #100, #100,000 or #1, 000,000. It shows your integrity and character. Same goes with borrowed umbrellas, pens, lunch boxes or any other item you borrow.


  • Never order the expensive dish on the menu when someone is treating you to lunch/dinner. If possible, ask them to order their choice of food for you.


  • Don’t ask awkward questions like, ‘Oh, so you aren’t married yet?’ Or ‘Don’t you have kids?’ or ‘Why didn’t you buy a house?’ For crying out loud, it isn’t your problem, please! Again, it can embarrass or devastate the person. Have common sense!


  • When someone makes a wrong investment and loses their money, don’t add fuel to the flames by saying ‘I knew this would happen. You should have listened to me’. Don’t make failure seem worse for anyone.


  • Always open the door for the person coming behind you. It doesn’t matter if it is a guy or a girl. You don’t grow small by treating someone well in public or by being kind.


  • Wear earphones when traveling on a subway, car or bus. Don’t make others taste your choice of good/bad music. Don’t put them through the pain of listening to music under compulsion, no matter how good you think the song or sound is. Always assume they are not in the mood for it.


  • Don’t visit anyone/knock on people’s doors unannounced, irrespective of how close, younger or junior they are to you. Call them up and have an appointment, some days or at least a day to your visit, except it is an unavoidable emergency, that probably involves a one -on -one seeing and not a phone talk.


  • When you knock on people’s door, wait for a response before going in. Knocking means, “can I come in?” and not, “I am coming in”. Get a response from inside the house, before you know what next to do. No response? Then go back.


  • When you stretch out your hand to give or take a handshake, always, always, accompany it with a smile and a direct look into the other person’s eyes. Make your handshake firm, especially for guys.


  • The most important one! Don’t swipe left or right when someone hands over their phone to you for viewing a particular picture, except he /she permits you to. And also, don’t browse through their messages and call lists. People’s phones and the contents are their private property. Learn to respect that.


Dino Melaye speaks after failed recall

Senator Dino Melaye has reacted to the failed attempt to recall him from the Senate saying he will continue to stand by the truth. In a couple of tweet on Sunday, April 29, the embattled senator representing Kogi west appreciated the effort of his people to keep him in the senate.

He promised not to let them down.

“Every lie has an expiry date. Forces of evil will never triumph over forces of light. God is with us

“Thank you my people. God bless you all. Thank you for the confidence reposed on me. I will not let you down. I will always stand by the truth and the people at all times. God bless Kogi west.” had reported that the attempt to recall Senator Dino Melaye failed after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) verified only 18,742 of the 189,870 signatories.

Channels reports that the recall process which happened on Saturday, April 29 witnessed a low turnout as only 5.34 percent of the 351,146 registered voters in the Kogi west senatorial district appeared.


50 per cent plus one of the signatories is what is expected for the verification process to succeed. Professor Ukertor Gabriel Moti who is the declaration officer for the exercise said the result did not satisfy the requirement for a referendum.


Lyrics: Baraka Zangu (My Blessings) Rebecca Soki

Mara mingi moyo unakataa (A lot of times my heart fails me)
Hata damu unashindwa kusukuma (It fails even to pump blood)
Nikiwaza mengi nimepitia (When thinking of what I have been through)
Ila imani ndio inanisukuma (It is only faith that pushes me on)

Bado nangoja (I am still waiting) x4

Napata kizunguzungu sana (I am always faint)
Ninapata kizunguzungu (I am faint)
Sometimes maisha inakuwa ngumu sana (Sometimes life is very hard)
Hata nimekosa nguvu (That I become faint)
Lakini nakumbukuka, ahadi zako (But then I remember your promises)
Tena nakumbuka matendo yako (I also remember your work)
Uko mwaminifu ukisema unatenda (You are faithful to do what You promised)
Wewe ni mwaminifu kwa ahadi zako (You are faithful to your promises)

Zile baraka zangu, Bwana (Lord, my blessings promised to me)
Zile baraka zangu (bado nangoja) (I am still waiting for my blessings)
Na Zile baraka zangu, Bwana (Lord, My blessings)
Zile baraka zangu (bado nangoja) (I am still waiting for my blessings)
Na zile ahadi zangu, Bwana (Those promises made to me, Lord)
Na zile ahadi zangu (bado nangoja) (I am still waiting for those promises)
Zile, zile (Those, those)

Shughulika na hali yangu (Look after my health)
Nimelala sakafuni (I have slept on the floor)
Kwenye baridi mateso mengi (There is a lot of suffering in the cold)
Shughulika na hali yangu najua mwokozi (Look after my heart, you know it My Savior)
Uje mapema wala huchelewi (Come quickly, You do not tarry)

Nimehustle haswa (I have hustled hard)
Nimetokwa jasho jasho nikitegea (I have sweated while waiting)
Tena kama godi, tena kama Esta (Just like .?., and just like Esther)
Baba nakutegemea, Mungu nakutegemea (Father I depend on You, God I depend on You)


Tegemeo la moyo wangu, ni wewe Yesu (Jesus, You are the one my heart depends on)
Tumaini la moyo wangu, ni wewe Kristu (Christ you are the hope of my heart)
Nakungojea (I wait for You) x4
