‘Don’t Defect From APC’- Buhari Begs Saraki

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Thursday made deft moves to avert an impending exodus of its bigwigs to the leading opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The peace initiative, Akelicious gathered, was being spearheaded by President Muhammadu Buhari, who Thursday met with Senate President Bukola Saraki, believed to be the arrowhead of the impending mass movement, and appealed to him to stay back in the party.
Saraki and other aggrieved top members of the APC massed in the reformed All Progressives Congress (rAPC), including Governors Aminu Tambuwal (Sokoto), Samuel Ortom (Benue) and Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara) had met with the leaders of the PDP on Wednesday in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara State, to consider the absorption of the rAPC.
Akelicious had reported Thursday that although the PDP leaders, including Governor Nyesom Wike and the party’s National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, had gone to Ilorin ostensibly to commiserate with Alhaji Abubakar Baraje, an rAPC chieftain, over the death of his mother, a meeting to discuss their possible crossover to the PDP actually held.
Buhari’s meeting with Saraki, the outcome of which was not made public, held simultaneously with another, between Ortom, who had indicated on Tuesday that he had technically left the APC, and the National Chairman, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole.
The former Edo State governor publicly appealed to Ortom not to return to the PDP.
Akelicious gathered that Saraki’s meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa Thursday was set up by APC governors, including Alhaji Aminu Masari (Katsina State), Senator Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun State) and Senator Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi State), who after initial discussions with the Senate president at his Abuja residence on Wednesday night, prevailed on the president to meet with him and persuade him not to defect from the party.
The APC National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole too, Akelicious learnt, spent much of Monday at Saraki’s house trying to straighten things out.
Oshiomhole’s effort was said to have been followed up in Ilorin on Wednesday by the Deputy National Chairman (South), Chief Niyi Adebayo, who led a delegation on a fence mending mission.
Masari, Amosun and Bagudu were said to have advised Buhari to meet with Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, to persuade them to reconsider their decision to move out of the APC as this could adversely affect the fortune of the party in 2019.
The president, Akelicious learnt, agreed with the governors and met with Saraki Thursday even as he is expected to meet with Dogara around the weekend, Although there was no statement after the presidential fence-mending, it was learnt that there was no concrete resolution as both leaders left the meeting with all options left open.

Benue State Governor Ortom Cries Out, Says Alleged Plans To Attack Him

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has cried out over alleged plan by some persons to attack him.
The governor said there were underground plans by his political enemies to launch a smear campaign against his person and office.
In a statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, the governor said some persons were not happy over the governor’s refusal to betray the people of Benue who brought him to power.
Akase said, “It has become necessary to alert the people of Benue State and other Nigerians about further plans by some persons to launch smear campaigns against Governor Samuel Ortom on various conventional and social media platforms.
“These plans are part of a grand conspiracy between some politicians in Benue State with their collaborators in Abuja, part of which was uncovered and exposed recently.
“The organised attacks which will be based on blatant falsehood are aimed at damaging the good and towering reputation of the Governor to the political advantage of the selfish individuals.
“Those behind the plot whose objectives include perpetual subjugation in all spheres are not comfortable with the courageous stand of Governor Ortom on major issues in favour of majority of Benue people.
“They have therefore chosen to demonize him.
“However, Governor Ortom reassures the people of the state that the fresh plans will fail, just like all the others, because he has no skeleton in the cupboard.
“We reassure anyone who is genuinely interested in getting information regarding government activities to make inquiries and such information will be readily available.
“The campaign to tarnish the Governor’s image would not distract him from delivering on the mandate of the people as well as pursuing justice and right causes. The campaign of calumny will only strengthen his resolve to stand by the people.
“As the state anthem says ‘though the giants may be on their way to hinder, God will surely give us victory’.”

‘We Will Not Allow President Buhari Deceive Us Again IN 2019’- Igbo Group

A social-political organisation, Igboezue International, Thursday, vowed that it would resist every attempt by President Muhammadu Buhari to deceive people of the zone again.
The group insisted that the political future of Igbo would not depend on whether or not President Buhari is re-elected in 2019.
Reacting to comments by the President and the All Progressives Congress, APC, leaders in the South-East that the political future of the Igbo rest on the re-election of Buhari in 2019, leader of the group, Mr. Pius Okoye, said equity demands that the Igbo should produce president in 2023
He said: “Despite the massive support President Buhari garnered from Igbo during his first tenure, his administration will go down in history as the administration that worsened the socio-economic woes of the ethnic nationality in terms of marginalisation, impoverishment and stagnant development.
“Under the watch of President Buhari, the Igbo were marginalised in terms of political appointments, infrastructural developments and Federal Government welfare programmes. Ndigbo should not be deceived for the second time.”

OMG!! Mother Put Baby Under Trailer’s Tyres To Be Crushed, Government Come To Rescue (Photos)

A 3-month-old baby boy whose mother, Aisha Yau, attempted to kill, by placing under the wheels of a trailer so he could be crushed, has been rescued by Kaduna state government.
According to TheNation, Kaduna State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Hafsat Muhammed, rescued the baby from Aisha.
Aisha, who stays under the popular Kawo bridge, was said to have purposely kept the baby under a trailer’s wheel with the expectation that when the trailer moves, it will crush him.
To ensure that that was done, she stood aloof and prevented people from carrying the baby while persuading the driver of the truck to start the engine.
But unfortunately for her and fortunately for the infant, a passerby quickly drew the attention of the commissioner to the scene. But the lady, Aisha said, she could not explain how she found herself in Kaduna. .
She hinted that it was the crisis in her state, Taraba, that scattered her family members without a trace of any of them, more than a year ago.
“One of my suitors in Kasuwan Baici here in Kaduna, got me pregnant but he denied the pregnancy and refused to take care of me and the baby. So, I want to kill the baby to save myself from shame”, she said.
Speaking with newsmen, the commissioner said she has directed social department in her ministry to take Aisha to the hospital for medical examination and treatment before repatriating her and her child to Taraba State.

Lagos Begins Removal Of Tankers Today On Major Roads (Details)

Lagos State Government has said it will commence the removal of trucks and tankers from highways and bridges from today.
The state, yesterday, set up a joint operation, involving security agencies and stakeholders in the maritime sector, to remove all containerised trucks and tankers parked along the Oshodi-Apapa Expressway commencing from today.
Tagged: ‘Operation restore sanity on Lagos roads’, the exercise will be carried out from early hours of today to Monday, by 1,000 policemen, 500 officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), 100 officers of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), 120 officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and 250 personnel of the Nigerian Military, including Army, Air Force and the Navy.
Apart from providing the equipment to be used for the operation, LASEMA will also deploy 20 officials, while the relevant unions within the maritime sector, such as Amalgamation of Container Truck Owners Association, Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), National Association of Transport Operators (NATO) and Association of Maritime Truck Owners (AMATO), will provide hundreds of their members to serve as task force, to work with security agencies.
Addressing a press briefing, after an emergency meeting on the chaos in Apapa axis, as a result of the gridlock, Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, said the decision to set up the operation became imperative due to the need to restore sanity and prevent complete breakdown of law and order.
“We have held series of meetings between yesterday and today and we have come up immediately with a resolve to immediately start ‘Operation restore sanity on Lagos roads’.
“Thereafter, inventory will be made. The shipping companies will be called to send their representatives to take inventory of the containers taken to the designated locations, so they can continue their activities from there,” Edgal said.
He also urged Maritime Union Workers, in the interest of the nation, to shelve their planned strike and other moves they have so far embarked on, which led to the gridlock, while also appealing to Lagos residents to bear with government, especially in the event of diversions to ensure removal of the parked trucks and containers.
A statement from Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Kehinde Bamigbetan, indicated the state government would urge the Federal Ministry of Works, Power and Housing to consider shifting the proposed closure dates for the Third Mainland Bridge to a latter date, to avoid compounding the situation, as Ikorodu Road and adjoining roads will not be adequate to cope with the traffic if the bridge is shut for repairs, at a time Apapa-Oshodi Expressway and others leading in and out of the ports are experiencing an unusual, albeit, temporary traffic snarl.
He also said while Mr. President had assured Lagos State that the federal government would tackle the matter, decisively, the latest hardship makes the much-needed intervention extremely imperative.
The commissioner expressed regrets that ongoing rehabilitation of roads in Apapa and its environs, and the efforts towards sanitising truck entry procedures have pushed the trucks to other parts of the city, all because the haulage operators have continued to illegally turn major roads to parks, thereby, using public facilities to increase their private profit.

Osinbajo Charges Traditional Rulers On Security Challenges

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday charged traditional rulers across the country to be ready to use their positions to assist the Federal Government to tackle the different security challenges facing the country.
Osinbajo gave the charge at the opening of the 10th National Development Summit of Nigerian Traditional Rulers in Abuja.
He recalled that the traditional rulers played major roles when the government was tackling bombing of oil installations by the Niger Delta militants and the secessionist agitation by the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra in the South East
He, therefore, urged them not to relent, but take up greater responsibility in order to resolve the bloody conflicts being experienced in parts of the country.
He said the monarchs’ engagements were as important as those of law enforcement agencies.
Osinbajo urged them to leverage on the respect they command among their followers in tackling the challenges.
He said while law enforcement agencies were critical elements in deterring criminality and ensuring that perpetrators are brought to justice, overlooking the place of non-coercive conflict prevention and resolution mechanisms would do a great disservice to Nigerians.
“You (traditional rulers) are also repositories of important intelligence that can be useful in detecting suspicious or criminal activity.
“The partnership between traditional authority and government is therefore crucial,” Osinbajo said.
He added, “I can say without fear of contradiction that the new vision for the Niger Delta would not have happened without the support of traditional rulers and leaders in the region.
“We have made it a priority to meet with them and carry them along, and ask for their wisdom and their support in resolving issues with stakeholders and communities.
“This was also our approach in the wake of secessionist agitation by IPOB in the South East.”

The person who was filming him had to stop immediately the car exploded.
The reason for the argument which prompted the man to kill himself in such a gruesome manner is yet to be determined.
