APC UK backs Osinbajo over removal of Daura


The United Kingdom chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the removal of Mr Lawal Daura, Director-General of Department of State Services (DSS), by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo as timely.

The chapter, in a statement by its spokesman, Mr Jacob Ogunseye, on Wednesday in Abuja, said that Osinbajo’s decision to remove Daura was a right step aimed at strengthening the nation’s democratic tenets.

It added that Daura’s removal came at the right time, especially at a crucial time when the 2019 general elections were a few months away.

The group described Osinbajo as bold, strong and worthy of representing his principal in taking desired decisions.

“The invasion by operatives of the DSS was undemocratic, irrespective of the motive.

“It is absolutely not part of our great party and therefore, the party would never have been part of the orchestrated plan to block the entrance to the national assembly.

“Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has shown his stuff, as a bold and intelligent leader that follows the pursuit of perfection in putting the country on the right path,”
it said.

It added that it was now very clear that the combination of the two men at the helm of affairs had put Nigeria on the pedestal of strength.

According to the group, the synergy of efforts show that Nigeria is now stronger as a country.

“We are quite delighted at the hand-in-glove working relationship between Buhari and Osinbajo, definitely the next four years will be great for our party, the APC and the country at large,” it said.

It advised international communities to be wary of their reactions, especially on the domestic affairs of other sovereign countries.

The group also reminded the communities that Nigeria was a sovereign country, adding that diplomats should be careful and guided when interfering in its domestic affairs.

“Making categorical statement on domestic issues affecting any nation should be guided by accurate information and the standards of such.

“We reiterate our unwavering support as an organ of the governing party in the Diaspora.

“We assure Nigerians that the APC-led government under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari will not relent in the continuation of delivering on its promises and people-oriented solutions as it had been doing ” it added.

    Indeed Vice President Yomi Osibanjo ‘SAN’ has lived up to the expectations of many Nigerians in sackn Alhaji Daura. The impunitive arrow head of the Cabals holdn Nigerians hostage, since the assumption of leadership of Naija by PMB led Fed Govt. Is welcome Deve & gd step,which the people of Nigerian ve long bn anticipatn. Wt this laudible action by the VP.The massess of Naija earnestly request the VP to follow this Internationally acclaimed Democratic action by dismising every officer,no matter his/her religious belief or trbe. Those who has bn found Guilty of Corruption or indischarge of duties. Above all, the Case of Mr Magu must be revisited,Since the DSS Opratives ve indicted & found him unsuitable to hold the position of Chairman of EFCC. And has bn equally disqualified by the Nationally Assy. The arm of the Fed Govt sadled wt the approval & disqualification of Names submited by the Fed Govt to the National Assy for Confirmation or otherwise of the lists forwarded. One wonders why the case of Mr Magus case should be treated differently by the Presidency. .Nigerians are watchn wt keen interests know why the Presidency should insist on Mr Magu being the Chairman of the EFCC. As if there’s no honest & qualified Nigerian the Presidency could re-submit his name to the National Assy for Screening as the Chairman of EFCC, NIGERIA CALL OBEY!
