APC Harvests 500 PDP Members In Abia

Featured Image

No less than five hundred members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from Ndume Ibeku ward in Umuahia north local government area of Abia state have defected to the All Progressives congress (APC).

The aggrieved decampees also decried the alleged failure of the Governor Okezie Ikpeazu-led administration to deliver dividends of democracy to the people, vowing to ensure the sack of PDP-led government in Abia state come 2019.

Speaking at Ohokobe Mbaocha Square, venue of the declaration ceremony in Umuahia, the state capital, leader of the PDP decampees, Mr. Chukwudi Orji said their decision to dump their former party to APC was borne out of the commitment and determination of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to transform Nigeria.

Orji further stressed that the current federal government has laid solid foundation for the total economic development of the country.

He said that they were defecting to the governing party with over five hundred PDP members and pledged on behalf of other defectors to work collectively for the success of APC in the forthcoming 2019 governorship election in Abia state.

According to Orji, “It is obvious that PDP government has failed to provide democracy dividends to Abians. In Abia today, one can not boast of any tangible projects.

“Workers from local government level to state are being owned salaries. The unemployment rates in Abia has increased. No job for Abia youths.

“All the whole state owned infrastructures has completely gone moribund and the government has failed to resuscitate those industry that would offer jobs to many unemployed youths.

“So, today, we are saying Enough is Enough to the PDP misrule in Abia. Abians have been subjected to hardship and penury. Nothing works in the state.

“We defecting to APC because of the good vision of APC-led federal government towards repositioning the country for economic and infrastructural development. So, today, you can see mammoth of PDP members that here,over five hundred of us going APC.”

While welcoming the PDP decampees, the APC Ndume Ibeku ward chairman, Mr. Nnamdi Ohaeri said that the door of APC was always open for people who have interest of the masses at heart, assuring the defectors that they would be fully carried along in the affairs of the party.

He urged the defectors to shun any negative tendencies that may jeopardise the affairs of the party in the state and harped on the need for all APC members to close ranks and work together in the interest of the party.

UTME 2018: JAMB Explains Reason For Removal Of ‘Some’ Results From Its Portal

Featured Image

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed that the candidates who sat for the 2018 United Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and could no longer access their results might have had their results withheld.

This disclosure was made by the Board’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin during an interview with newsmen on Monday in Abuja.

Some candidates had earlier cried foul following the removal of their released results from the website of the Board, after initially accessing it.

The candidates complained that the site displayed, “You do not have any result yet” or “you did not write the examination,” after such results were earlier published.

However, the JAMB spokesman disclosed that the board may reschedule the examinations for some whose cases are exceptional but some results may have been withheld.

“Once you don’t see your result after a while it means it has been withheld.

“However, there are exceptions and the board intends to reschedule the examinations for those who fall in that category but they would be contacted before then.”

He explained that the board was still working to release other results.

He also noted that the board would continually give an update to the general public on its latest developments as time goes on, especially if there are any changes in the system.

Benjamin also enjoined those who intend to change their choice of institutions before the 2018/19 admissions process begins, to visit the board’s site and follow the procedure as displayed.

He said the process has been ongoing and costs N2, 500 only and can only be processed online, just like every other process of the board.

Buhari Explains Why He’s Running For Second Term (Full Speech)

Featured Image

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, April 9, told the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that he will be seeking the party nomination to fly the party flag in the 2019 presidential election.

IT’S OFFICIAL: Buhari Declares To Run For Second Term

His office issued the statement below on the announcement giving further details on the president’s decision.

See full statement below:

REMARKS BY HIS EXCELLENCY, MUHAMMADU BUHARI, PRESIDENT, FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA, ON THE REPORT SUBMITTED BY THE ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS NATIONAL EXECUTIVE TECHNICAL COMMITTEE 9TH APRIL, 2018

I am delighted to welcome you all to this very important meeting in the affairs of our party and our country. I want to specifically thank members of the Technical Committee for a job well done within the limited time frame.

2. It shows a great sense of commitment to the ideals of our party with a view to consolidating and positioning the party to continue delivering good governance in the overall interest of Nigerians.

3. With the present state of the party and based on the report submitted by the Technical Committee, It is important to focus on how to move the party forward by avoiding actions detrimental to the interest of the party. Considering that politics is a game of numbers, we must not be a house divided against itself and must try to note, appreciate and accommodate our differences as far as the law permits.

4. Upon my review of the Report, my position is to ensure that the party tows the path of unity, legality and cohesion and not that of division.

5. Therefore, I am stressing that we should strengthen our internal democracy by organising the Party’s Congresses and Convention where election of National Executive Committee members would be held. This will automatically end the cases filed by members seeking orders of Court compelling the party to hold its Congresses.

6. I also believe that the current executives should be free to vie for elective positions in the party if they so wish as permitted by our Party constitution.

7. However, considering the provision of Article 31(1)(iii) of the APC Constitution which requires any serving officer desirous of seeking re-election to resign from office 30 days before election, I am not sure of the practicality of present serving officers’ ability to meet this condition.

8. Accordingly, the party may consider granting waivers to party executives at all levels so that they are not disenfranchised from participating in the elections should they wish to do so, provided this does not violate our rules.

 9. Necessary waiver(s) should also be extended to executives at the Ward level whose tenures may have elapsed, and indeed to anyone knocking at our doors from other political parties. This is in the spirit of the Right to Freedom of Association guaranteed by the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended).

10. In this circumstance, the party should officially issue a statement on the above Waivers so that our house may be full. We all must not be ignorant of the times, and the journey that is ahead of us.

11. Just like our party symbol; “the Broom,” which typifies strength in unity, let us strive to remain united in our purpose. Victory is sure by the Grace of God, and together we must continue to sanitize Nigeria’s political environment.

12. Once again, I welcome you all to this meeting with the hope that we will, in our deliberations today, conduct ourselves without rancour and promote the highest interest of the party and the nation.

Thank you.

#BBNaija 2018 Day 70: Housemates And Their Unique Personalities

Featured Image

Despite the constant quarrels that appear to be slowly bearing fruits of division in the #bbnaija House, the Housemates have created a somewhat effective rhythm of tolerance and seem to get along quite well, be it pretence or not.

The differences in the personalities of the #bbnaija housemates has allowed each of them to define their positions in the House and whether they choose to admit it or not, an Evictee’s absence will always be felt. Week 10 saw 6 of of the #bbnaija Housemates get put up for Eviction and at least one of them will have to kiss their 25 Million Naira dreams goodbye.

Besides her bold hair, Alex had displayed an even bolder personality and her loud-mouth qualities have seen her fearlessly defending her own honour. There was a time when she let herself go and could only truly find solace in her silence but if she had to be Evicted before the end of the show, the #BBNaija dance floorwould mourn her exit, not to mention her partners in all crimes, Miracle and Tobi.

Cee-C is perhaps the least understood of the #bbnaija Housemates and her fierce, tell it like it is attitude hasn’t help her one bit. Despite being the Housemates with the highest altercation tally, she’s managed to show a soft side.

While there seems to be a lot of whispering in the #bbnaija House, her absence will equate to the absence of loud and explicit realness.

It seems none of the Housemates expected Lolu to survive this long due to his awkward intelligence and ‘too good to be true’ demeanour. His reasoning skills have seen him extinguish a number of unnecessary wild fires and bring order when chaos abounds. His exit may see rationality leave with him.

Miracle is arguably one of the most evolved of the #bbnaija Housemates, as he has grown from weakling to extremely competitive, boasting of one of the highest winning tallies in the House. His exit may result in a hit on the competitiveness in the house.

Nina, just like Miracle, has evolved. From silent victim to vocal opponent, she’s been able to find her voice and made it known that she would no longer swallow any insult thrown at her. She has however managed to maintain a level of softness, something that would be very rarely found in the House, should she be Evicted.

Rico Swavey has managed to keep his hands clean even when the #bbnaija House went agog with drama. Despite his goofy personality, he’s managed to display a more serious face when calling the Housemates out on their food wasting habits, twice. If there’s one thing the House will lack should he leave, it’ll be a neutral point of view and comix nature.

Liverpool Are A long Ball Team- Fernandinho

Featured Image

Fernandinho has described Liverpool as a ‘long-ball side’ ahead of Tuesday night’s Champions League clash at the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool demolished Manchester City in the opening 90 minutes of the quarter-final tie, scoring all three of their goals in the space of 19 first-half minutes.

Fernandinho claims that City have a plan to haul Liverpool back, though, as long as their most experienced players put in a positive performance on the night.

Speaking at Monday’s pre-match press conference, the Brazilian said: “They are a team that like to play long balls. They try to keep the players around the middle.

“I hope we can solve all the problems we had, especially in the first half, in 10-15 minutes we conceded three goals. Then we can apply our type of game. Our focus is on the second leg against Liverpool and the only way to play good football is to be positive.

“Now’s the time for experienced players to take over and take charge. Of course we know two defeats are not easy but that happens to the best teams in the world.

“What we have done this season is amazing and we have a chance to go through in the Champions League. It won’t be easy. They are a team who fight for the ball and try to keep the players in the middle but we will be ready for tomorrow’s game.”

France

RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano has long been linked with Manchester United going back to 2015, and now those rumours are re-surfacing. The 19-year-old has spoken out, saying: “…when you’re young you dream of a move to Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United.” The price would be an eye-watering €100m (£87m) for the teenage centre-back. (Telefoot)

After links with Roma yesterday, it’s time for a link closer to home for Marouane Fellaini. Liverpool are reportedly interested in the Manchester United midfielder and have drawn up a three-year-deal for the Belgian. They face stiff competition however, with PSG and Monaco also keen on the 30-year-old. Fellaini is out of contract at Old Trafford this summer and has turned down a new deal already. (L’Equipe)

Italy

Former England coach Fabio Capello has once again reiterated that taking the Italy job is out of the question for him. The 71-year-old insists his time with Jiangsu Suning was his final spell in management and continues to bang the drum for Roberto Mancini to be the next Azzurri coach. (Radio Anch’io Sport)

He has been linked to many of Europe’s giants, but is it all getting too much for Roma’s goalkeeper Alisson? There are question marks over whether the Liverpool target is feeling the pressure after a string of apparent errors, the latest being his inability to close down Gio Simeone for Fiorentina’s second goal as Roma were defeated at the weekend. (Corriere dello Sport)

Juventus forward Paulo Dybala has emerged as a target for Liverpool this summer. The Argentine has previously been subject of Barcelona transfer rumours. (Mediaset Premium)

Germany

It was supposedly a casting for the next Bayern Munich coach, but there was no winner as Robert Kovac’s Eintracht Frankfurt drew 1-1 with Julian Nagelsmann’s Hoffenheim at the weekend. It means that the search for the Bundesliga giants’ next manager continues with Jupp Heynckes not prepared to continue his interim role. (Bild)

Borussia Dortmund will reportedly collect as many as €148m from Ousmane Dembele’s sale to Barcelona last summer. The German side reportedly put a number of stipulations in the deal and will cash in at a series of points including in 10 games, with a windfall of €5m. Even if he doesn’t reach those milestones – or leaves Barca – Dortmund can still reportedly claim the full €20m amount.

Spain

Sevilla are looking to steal a march on the rest of Europe for the next big thing to come out of the Eredivisie. Feyenoord winger Steven Berghuis has hit 18 goals this season and the Spanish side see him as the ideal player to be their marquee signing. Berghuis, who was a flop at Watford previously, has a contract until 2021. But with a reported release clause of just €9m he is seen as a bargain in the current market. (Estadio Deportivo)

Out-of-favour Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes says he is not thinking about his future, despite reports he is a Manchester United transfer target. “Right now I do not think about that,” he said. “I am enjoying myself and living the dream that all children want to live.” (Barca TV)

#BBNaija 2018 Day 70: What If Nominations Were Open And Known By All?

Featured Image

Despite the fierce competitiveness fuelled by the grand price and the respective expectations of the #bbnaija Housemates’ post-win, the big brother format promotes cross-ideological interactions and tolerance.

However, it is difficult to defuse the fact that drama and cut-throat altercations are the feed to the viewers’ entertainment gardens. Basically, the sharper the claws, the better. As such, it will be nothing but chaos if ‘anonymity’ was stripped away from the Nominations!

Everyone has seen how absolutely shook Evictees become after discovering which of their fellow #bbnaija housemates Nominated them and consequently led to their game’s demise.

Asides believing that they could have been the most ‘authentic’ of Housemates, their shock stems from that fact that the biggest of knives stuck on in their backs are those of ‘friends’ turned ‘foes’.

It’s one thing for the #bbnaija Housemates to know who wants them out but it would be a whole different ball game if they had to find out why was responsible for shoving them towards the Eviction doors.

We’ve had quite a number of quarrels in the #bbnaija House, during which insults were hurled and those involved became sharply confrontational; but judging by the observers’ sly smiles and venomous giggles, the battles might have been limited to the participants, but the war was deemed collective. Especially when the least liked Housemates were at the receiving end.

The amount of ‘gossip courage’ the #bbnaija Housemates seem to have, especially when gisting comfortably with other ‘foes’ dressed in ‘friend’ skins is enormous; even as they label others as weak and point fingers left, right and centre, totally placing themselves on high pedestals.

While all 20 of the #bbnaija Housemates have done this lightly or explicitly, there is no disputing the fact that the House would turn into a war zone and it might be difficult for the Housemates to contain themselves if Nominations had to be made open over-lunch Dining table discussions.

Imagine the housemates saying, “I don’t like you because a, b, c; I think you’re fake and I’m better than you; you’re weak so bye; I don’t like you as much as you like me.” Surely, the chaos would have been difficult to contain, which is why we are glad that Big Brother has rules in place.

Klopp: Man City Are Not Vunerable

Featured Image

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool will not be guarded against Manchester City, as they have lost two big matches in a row.

Liverpool trounced them 3-0 in the first leg of the UCL quarterfinal, scoring all goals in the first 31 minutes.

Manchester City expected to be champions when they faced United, only to lose 3-2 after going 2-0 up at halftime.

“No [City are not vulnerable],” Klopp told a media conference on Monday. “When we played City and we lost 5-0 [in September], everyone saw the quality of City, even though we were one man down.

“We all know about Pep, the best coach in the world, and it was clear they are outstanding, but there’s no perfect football team in the world.

“You have moments, situations, days, sometimes only minutes, but they have been the most consistent, that’s why they’re champions at the end of the season.

“There are tough moments for all teams – I don’t think even Barcelona think they are through against Roma [at 4-1 up] because that’s football. Nothing is fixed.”

“I’ve been part of an Atletico side that is always able to fight for titles and it’ll always be my home. It has been for my whole life.

“This is my last season at the club – it was not an easy decision, but under the circumstances it’s maybe for the best.

“I want to continue playing somewhere else. I feel good.”

At 34 years old, however, the striker is ready to move on.

“When I joined Atletico I was 10 years old and it’s my house. I was lucky to debut, to play, to score goals… it’s always been my home. I can have many houses, but only one home,” he said at a promotional event for LG.

“I’ve been part of an Atletico side that is always able to fight for titles and it’ll always be my home. It has been for my whole life.

“This is my last season at the club – it was not an easy decision, but under the circumstances it’s maybe for the best.

“I want to continue playing somewhere else. I feel good.”

Kanu Nwankwo Denies Contesting For Nigeria’s 2019 Presidential Election

Featured Image

Former Arsenal star and captain of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Kanu Nwankwo has distanced himself from the rumours making the rounds on the internet that he is campaigning for the 2019 presidency, saying he does not know where and how his name has been linked to the race for Aso Rock Villa.

Goal wrote an ‘April Fools’ article revealing that the former Super Eagle was inspired to follow in George Weah’s footsteps to help provide a better life for his fellow countrymen.

But despite the article stating it was an April Fool joke, and it being written by “Loof Lirpa”, it was taken seriously by multiple media outlets who then reported on it as fact.

This then generated heated argument across several media platforms on whether the former Champions League winner had what it takes to lead the country. 

But in a chat with Goal, Kanu is shocked at the way the ‘April Fool’ article quickly went from hoax to fact.

“This is meant to be a joke but people haven’t seen it that way,” he told Goal.

“I think there is a need to inform them that it is just April Fool.

“My immediate concern is using my vast contacts and experience to develop the Nigerian youth through sports.

“I also want to keep saving lives through the Kanu Heart Foundation.”

In the same vein, Nigerian Guardian also quoted the ex-footballer, fondly called Papilo, as saying that he was surprised to see his poster on the Internet campaigning for the Presidency.

Speaking in Lagos on Friday, Kanu said: “I have not in any capacity announced such ambition. I do not know where such story emanated from.

“As a Nigerian, I will be glad to be in such a position if it is God’s will. I also will make official declaration if such idea comes my way. At this point in time I am not seeking any political position.”

Kanu was in Lagos for the launch of the Ultimate Football TV Reality Show, which he was unveiled as the ambassador.

He said his desire to be part of the project was because part of the proceeds from the programme would be used to fund the Kanu Heart Foundation, adding that the Ultimate Football Fan TV Reality Show will also help in increasing the awareness of the game at the domestic and international levels.

The Nigerian Air Force has disclosed that its Special Forces in conjunction with some Nigerian Army troops, successfully foiled a suicide bomb attack by Boko Haram Terrorists at the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID), Borno State, on Sunday night.

Drama As UI Ejects Medical Students Using Unofficial, Undated Letter

AVM Olatokunbo Adesanya, NAF’s Director of Public Relations and Information, confirmed this in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

According to him, “The BHT suicide bombers tried to gain access into the University but were quickly detected by the NAF Special Forces.

“Meanwhile, the vest on one of the suicide bombers detonated before they could gain access into the hostel, leading to a commotion.

“However, there was no reported fatality except for the suicide bomber, whose counterparts immediately fled, when the NAF Special Forces and the NA troops opened fire on them.

“The NAF Agusta Light Utility Helicopter then went in pursuit of the fleeing BHTs, following which an additional suicide bomber was identified and neutralized.”

Adesanya said the NAF Agusta LUH was still searching for the other fleeing terrorists  as of the time of filing this report.

The NAF spokesman also warned members of the populace, especially those around the University premises to be very vigilant.

#BBNaija 2018 Day 70: A Recap Of Week 10

Featured Image

The Game has stiffened considerably of late, and the #bbnaija Housemates have been left to fend for themselves and dodge shots that seem completely invisible to them.

Thanks to last week’s Eviction twist that saw the unanticipated end of Bambam’s journey, followed by Teddy A’s exit, the #bbnaija Housemates have had to hold on for dear life. It wasn’t all dry leaves and thorns though because Biggie managed to spice the 10th week up for them.

The #bbnaija Housemates’ early mornings took a huge turn around thanks to the presence of fitness expert, Lawrence. After weeks of lazing around and only really exercising when the stars aligned, Biggie’s new introduction left the Housemates very uncomfortable to say the least.

Thanks to Easter graces though, the #bbnaija Housemates were able to sweeten up during the egg hunt that saw Khloe emerge head if house, to further stiffen the game’s cords.

More twists continued as the Housemates were almost completely occupied. The Yes Challenge was probably one of the most interesting as the Housemates were thrown in and out of their comfort zone. Alex went on a dolling spree and turned the guys into her personal mannequins.

On the brighter side of things, after Biggie’s disciplinary hearing, following Cee-C’s dress cutting episode, the #bbnaija Housemates were allowed to let out their inner creatives by redecorating their personal space and Anto even had her butt canvassed by Lolu.

The week was sweetened further when the #bbnaija Housemates managed to bag their Wager, despite Biggie’s unconventional trialling methods; and for the umpteenth time, Miracle banked the Million during the Payportes games.

With an Anto and Lolu kiss, as well as the party to seal the deal, the tenth week was pretty much an eventful one for the #bbnaija housemates.

Seye Ogunlewe Misses Out On Bronze Medal At The Commonwealth Games Despite Finishing The Race At The Same Time As Yohan Blake

Featured Image

Nigeria’s Seye Ogunlewe has agonisingly missed out on a podium finish at the 2018 Commonwealth Games

Jamaica’s Yohan Blake was forced to settle for bronze in the men’s 100m final at the Commonwealth Games, with South Africa’s Akani Simbine and Henricho Bruintjies claiming gold and silver respectively.

Yohan Blake was played catch-up throughout the race as South Africa claimed a memorable one-two at Carrara Stadium.

Simbine – a fifth-placed finisher at the Rio Olympics in 2016 – tore clear of the rest of the pack to post a time of 10.03s, 0.14s quicker than his closest challenger Bruintjies.

Bruintjies, who failed to even make it through his heat in Rio, crossed the line in 10.17s, beating Blake to silver by the narrowest of margins.

Yohan Blake also almost missed out on a medal entirely, finished in exactly the same time as Nigerian Seye Ogunlewe in fourth.
