”Anyone who voluntarily leaves the country and promises not to return not only to the Czech Republic but to the EU will be eligible for the money,” the report said.

”Allocation for the program amounts to 60 million CZK, 75 percent is to be covered from the European Asylum, migration and integration fund. Each individual could get funds ranging between 40,000 and 100,000 CZK. First funded returns should be processed in the third quarter of 2019.”

Buhari And APC Are Frustrated Over Atiku's Successful Trip To US - PDP

Buhari And APC Are Frustrated Over Atiku's Successful Trip To US - PDP
President Buhari and Atiku
 
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is frustrated over the successful trip of its presidential candidate, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, to the United States of America.
 
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, who stated this, yesterday, at a press briefing in Abuja, stressed that this is the reason the federal government has resorted to mudslinging at the former vice president.
 
The PDP spokesman was reacting to a statement by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed that Atiku will be questioned over his alleged involvement in the collapse of Bank PHB, once he returns from his US trip.
 
Ologbondiyan, who is also the director of Media and Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation (PPCO), said Atiku has no hand in the issues that allegedly led to the collapse of Bank PHB. He stated that the Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) should know that Nigerians have seen through their lies, fabrications and frustration, noting that the plot against Atiku is dead on arrival.
 
“The world already knows that this attempt to mudsling our presidential candidate is coming out of President Buhari’s frustration over Atiku Abubakar’s successful outing in the United States, for which the Buhari Presidency has gone into full hallucination. While we understand that President Buhari and his dysfunctional All Progressives Congress (APC) are jittery over Atiku Abubakar’s soaring popularity ahead of the elections, it is reprehensible that Mr. President will descend abysmally low to fabricate outright lies and falsehood in a bid to discredit a more qualified and acceptable presidential candidate.

“The PPCO makes bold to state that Atiku Abubakar has nothing to do with the alleged issues leading to the collapse of Bank PHB, but is an honest and hard-working Nigerian who has no skeleton of any sort in his cupboard, unlike President Buhari, who is now entangled in series of corruption allegations,” he stated.
 
The opposition spokesman noted that even the Chairman of President Buhari’s Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay, had said the Presidency has searched everywhere and could not find anything incriminating against the former vice president.
 
Ologbondiyan noted that, “if anything, the PPCO will want President Buhari to open the books and provide explanation for the N9 trillion stolen under his watch as Minister of Petroleum Resources as detailed in the leaked NNPC memo.

“President Buhari should as well, allow an open inquest into the alleged involvement of his relations in the N1.032 trillion alleged corrupt acquisitions in 9Mobile and Keystone Bank PLC.”

Oshiomhole
 
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and Governor Nasir El-Rufai of  Kaduna State, yesterday derided the celebration in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the US trip of its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
 
Oshiomhole and El-Rufai said in Kaduna that instead of the celebration, Atiku should explain to Nigerians why he could not go there over the last 12 years.
 
They both spoke at the presidential campaign of the APC.
 
El-Rufai said: “It is disturbing that, people in the PDP are celebrating instead of crying.

“So, all of a sudden, going to America is now an achievement. Mr. President, I first went to America when I was 22 years old. So, it is not an achievement. “Nigerians will not vote those who will take their money to America. Nigerians will not vote those who will go to America to seek Trump’s blessing before they will come and contest in Nigeria.

“In fact, he should come and explain to Nigerians why he could not go to America in the last 12 years.”
 
On his part, Oshiomhole hoped Atiku’s US trip is not about selling NNPC if he wins the presidential election.
 
The party chairman said: “The fundamental issues of the campaign are the pronouncements by the PDP presidential candidate to sell the NNPC just as they sold out NITEL, NEPA, Nigerian Airways and other government agencies.”
 
Oshiomhole alleged that “it was under the watch of Atiku as Nigeria’s Vice President that all the textile and other factories in Kaduna closed down. He has even said that, if he is elected, he will sell NNPC refineries.

“He thinks Nigerians are stupid, but we are not,” he said.
 
El-Rufai  promised President Muhammadu Buhari 90% votes in the forthcoming general elections.
 
‘In Kaduna in 2015, the President got over a million votes but the masses will give the President 90% votes this year by God’s grace. The 16th of February is my birthday, therefore I urge you all to present me with votes for the President as my gift,’ he said.

“PDP will be happy if you make mistakes during the polls. President Buhari has lived all his live a hero and you owe him that duty of returning him to power,” Amaechi said.

Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari narrowly escaped another embarrassing scenario after he almost fell while trying to take a seat at the just concluded All Progressives Congress rally in Kaduna.
 
Recall that just two days ago, Buhari slipped during an APC rally held in Kogi State and just on Thursday, he goofed at another rally held in Delta state where he handed his party's flag to yet another phantom 'APC presidential candidate'.
 
The latest gaffe by Buhari has led many people to believe that all is not well with the President as 2019 election gets closer. Many Nigerians are worried about the true status of his health.

Atiku Grants First Interview In US, Reveals Why He Stayed Away From America For Over 10 Years
Atiku
 
In an interview with VOA Hausa Service in Washington DC, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar said stories that he was banned from the United States was ‘disinformation’.
 
He spoke on Thursday, after his arrival to the US capital, where he lodged at Trump International  Hotel.
 
Here is the transcript of the interview conducted by VOA’s Aliyu Mustapha Sokoto 
 
VOA: What has been in the news for many years has come to past right now I’m together with the former Vice President of Nigeria and the Presidential flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after he had just returned from some interactive session with some high ranking Congress Men and Women. Your excellency, now that you have visited Washington D.C, does it have to do with those who said you cannot come to the United State of America or the visit is for what purpose?
 
Atiku: Aliyu I told you before that my coming to the United State is in the hands of Americans if they decided to issue a Visa to me I will definitely come and if they refused to give me I cannot come. And now they have issued it to me and I am here. I’m having some positive discussions with some of the officials.  I was in the Congress and I had discussions with some high ranking Congress men and Women about Nigeria and how Nigeria intends to improve her relationship with the United States of America.
 
VOA: After visiting the Congress, do you intend to meet with some other people?
 
Atiku: Yes, by tomorrow (Friday)  I will go to the State Department in order to have vital discussions with some of their officials.
 
VOA: Will you also meet with the members of the United States Chamber of Commerce?
 
Atiku: Yes, I will meet them tomorrow (Friday) by the Grace of God.
 
VOA: Who invited you to the United State?
 
Atiku: I was invited by many organizations in United States.
 
VOA: Before some people are saying that you cannot come to the United States of America but now you are here people will stop doubting.
 
Atiku: The whole thing is about misinformation
 
VOA: What do you mean by misinformation?
 
Atiku: Because for a very long time they have been lying to them (Nigerians) and they agreed; I tried to explain to them but they refused to listen. And I hope now people are going to understand.
 
VOA: Your coming to America has shown that you are going to have some interactions with some top officials of the United State are they in support of your candidacy?
 
Atiku: Yes.
 
VOA: Are you convinced that the United States Government are in support of your candidacy?
 
Atiku: There is no doubt because the United State is ready to support any country that is practicing democracy.
 
VOA: People know you as a businessman; do you think that your business background and experience will influence the United States Government to support you?
 
Atiku: One good thing is that Nigeria is a country that is practicing democracy and everyone knows that we have played a significant role and have done a lot to sustain democratic governance in Nigeria and it is very important.
