We can’t keep blaming PDP forever, APC group writes Buhari, Tinubu


Apparently afraid of the possible consequence of the lingering economic woes in Nigeria since the coming in of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in 2015, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Rebirth 2019, has demanded that the ruling party urgently turn things around.

This was as the group noted that the APC led Federal Government should not deceive itself to think that “Nigerians will forever reason with us that the prolonged social-economic meltdown in our country is entirely the fault of others.”

APC Rebirth 2019, is a support group within the ruling party. It lamented that the country has continued to sink under President Muhammadu Buhari in an “unprecedented” level and wants the party to turn things around before the 2019 general elections.

The position of the group was stated in a letter it sent to Buhari and some APC leaders including Bola Tinubu. The letter was signed by Tony Akeni, the group’s national president.
The letter reads in part, “As the ruling party at the centre and in the majority of Nigerian states, we have two choices before us.

“To our own detriment, we can choose to bury our heads in the sand from blame, like the preposterous ostrich and flaunt aimless growth and boom statistics like PDP is expert at and used to do in its hey days before its empire fell from its arrogant peak.

“Our second choice is to have the courage and soul-searching sober reflections to enable us evolve a sweeping change of fortunes for Nigerians in general, and to do so urgently, diligently and pragmatically with everything it takes in the short time remaining in our hands.

“The most fruitful channel to achieve the latter, which is the sensible choice, is the immediate convocation of an APC national political and economic retreat. Where we are in Nigeria today, we cannot afford to continue to wallow in the sympathy mentality that Nigerians will forever reason with us that the prolonged social-economic meltdown in our country is entirely the fault of others.

“Unlike political retreats we have seen convened in the past by the anti-masses opposition PDP, which consolidate on their avaricious leaders’ well-being and mending party stable cracks to facilitate safe looting of our country, the proposed APC retreat should evolve through three stages.

“The overall outcome of such retreat will accelerate decision processes from the president’s desk to the least APC administered local government council in Nigeria, and help us to put behind us the better part of the last two years during which decisions on virtually everything have been a nightmare of excruciating sluggard pace and beggarly delays.”

The APC has continuously blamed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the economic woes in the country which apparently worsened under the present administration.

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
