APC's embarrassing “NextLevel” reelection campaign has erased all lingering doubts that the Buhari presidency is a veritable graveyard of creativity, intelligence, and basic decency. The NextLevel campaign logo and slogan, as most people know by now, are unoriginal. They are also the product of willful intellectual theft. More than that, though, the campaign's symbolism portends a frightening future for Nigeria.
Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar has said that President Buhari has violated the constitution of Nigeria by suspending Justice Walter Onnoghen as the Chief Justice of Nigeria. Atiku said by doing so, that President Buhari has rubbished the Nigerian constitution by “crossing the immutable line that divides the Executive from the Judiciary.”
1. Last Saturday, the Commission, after extensive review of our preparedness for the 2019 general elections, decided that if was necessary to reschedule the elections by one week. As I explained to stakeholders, we were constrained to shift the polls due to severe challenges and lapses we experienced with arrival and distribution of sensitive materials, as well as the fires that gutted some of our offices in quick succession, destroying several election materials.

Before now the All Progressives Congress, APC, has created the impression of wanting to take over the leadership of the State to improve the welfare of the people. By employing all manner of lies and half-truths, they created a world of make-believe which expectedly has won for the party a lot of victims.
I am sure it came as a rude shock to most of us when we first got the news about the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the February 16 and March 2nd 2019 general elections despite its repeated assurances to the contrary.
