Rivers APC: Court of Appeal Ousts Decision of Justice Omereji’s Court, Orders Stay of Execution



A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress APC in Rivers State has optimism over the Court of Appeal ordered stay of execution of the Judgment of Justice Omereji which installed Hon. Igo Aguma as Chairman of the Rivers APC Caretaker Committee.

Nwuke in a statement circulated to journalists said, ‘it has come to our notice that the Court of Appeal has ordered a stay of execution of the Judgment of Justice Omereji which installed Hon. Igo Aguma as Chairman of the Rivers APC Caretaker Committee.”

According to him, “that pronouncement made by the Court upstairs simply means that under the gaze of the law, Hon. Aguma cannot act or parade as the Chairman of the Caretaker Committee within the pendency of the matter before it.”

Continuing he said, “Statutory members of the Rivers APC are happy with the decision of the Court of Appeal. We believe that their Lordships who are presiding over the matter weighed the issue on a judicial scale before issuing the order to stay the execution of the lower Court”.  

The statement further reads, “It gives us hope as true Democrats that there are still people within the judiciary who are impartial, incorruptible, courageous and upright. While salute their Lordships for standing on the side of justice, we commend members of our great party for their patience, prayers and support.

“Accordingly, we urge all right thinking members of society to ignore whatever may emanate from the desk of Hon. Igo Aguma which he may purport as representing the views or aspirations of the APC in Rivers State. 

“We hope that as a man of honour, Hon Igo Aguma would restrain himself from acting outside the dictates of the law. We recall that Aguma has held the APC in contempt and demonstrated gross disrespect for party directives emanating from NEC.

“Finally, we appeal to Rivers people who have faith in the vision and mission of the APC as well as our teeming party supporters spread across the State to remain calm. We want to assure  you of our collective resolve to ensure that justice is done.” 


Hon. Ogbonna Nwuke

For: Statutory members,

Senator Elisha Abbo Dumps PDP For APC



Senator Elisha Abbo has announced his defection from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Senator who is representing Adamawa North in the Senate announced his defection in a letter addressed to the House.

Senate President Ahmad Lawan read the letter during Wednesday’s plenary session.

In the letter, Senator Abbo explained that his decision to defect to the APC is because of the mismanagement of the PDP in Adamawa state by Governor Umaru Fintiri.

Senator Abbo has been in the news for assaulting a woman in an adult toy shop in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory sitting in Maitama, earlier in September, awarded N50 million damages against Senator Abbo, to be paid as compensation to Osimibibra Warmate, a female attendant at a sex-toy shop, whom he assaulted.

Justice Samira Bature gave the order in her judgment on the fundamental rights enforcement suit instituted by Warmate against the senator.

Earlier on July 3, 2019, the lawmaker was caught on camera physically assaulting a woman in Abuja, two months after he allegedly committed the act.

2023 Zoning: Let us respect agreement…Fashola



Ahead the 2023 general elections, the Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola, has strongly advised the leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to respect and honour agreement reached at the formative stage of the party.
He also said that the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) lacks the strength of taking over from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) come 2023.
Fashola who while chatting with newsmen covering the ruling party (APC Press Corps) in Abuja on Tuesday admitted there was an agreement on zoning which he said should be honoured.
When asked on the zoning arrangement, the former Lagos State governor said, “the truth is that what makes an agreement spectacular is the honour in which it is made not whether it is written. If it was written there would be no Court cases of breach of contract because it’s document that is written and signed that go to court. But the private agreement you make with your brother and sister should not be breached, it must be honoured.”
Though he argued that zoning may not feature in the party’s constitution but noted that party leaders at the formative stage entered into agreement which must be honoured.
According to the Minister, “All political parties are clubs where you write agreements just like a social club and we can decide that it is the youngest person who will be the Chairman of the Club or we can decide that it is the oldest person or the next female or the next male, that is the matter of agreement between people.”
On whether the ruling party can still retain its governing status come 2023, Fashola vehemently dismissed the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as no match to APC, arguing that they will have to think better to unseat the ruling party come 2023.
“Our opposition (PDP) has to think better than us in order to defeat us, right now they are not doing that. When it’s election time they should come and meet us.
“Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics. If you do what you said you will do even if you don’t do 100 percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish somewhat you started.”
He also called for support for the Governor Mai Mala Buni led Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Committee (CECPC) noting that the Committee was a product of necessity following the leadership crisis that engulfed the party.
“It was a crisis that led us to have a caretaker committee, we must respect the caretaker committee, let it do its job. Those of us who didn’t contest party positions, let’s focus on our jobs too and stop getting in each other’s way.
“Let’s be ready to support one another, every support that the caretaker committee requires, we will provide if it is within our means to do so. At the end of the day, we are governed by rules.

new obas’ market in Ado-Ekiti.

three months to know what went wrong.
