Akinwunmi Ambode Goes Dirty





When a man is pushed to the wall, there is only one direction he can turn.

This is the situation of the erstwhile governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode.

Said to have severally ignored the invitation of the Lagos State House of Assembly (LAHA), to answer to financial infractions that took place while he was governor, some maintain that the man is being hounded like a rabid dog.

Some insist that members of LAHA have been going about affairs concerning Ambode’s too personal.

However, there is a limit to what a man can take, and this is what has seen Ambode fighting back, as he seeks redress in court.

Trained in the act of fighting dirty before the All Progressive Congress (APC), Primary Election that saw him losing out on his second term bid, Ambode appears to be set to bring the experience to bear, as he begins a fight against his common enemies.

Kogi West Rerun Election: I Reject Factitious Result In Totality-Dino Melaye




Senator Dino Melaye has rejected the results of the Kogi West Senatorial District rerun election which held on Saturday November 16.

Melaye who described the election as “helicopter election”, told newsmen that it was marred by compromise, extreme violence, and rigging.

According to Dino, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should have stopped the collation of results following the violence recorded in the election.

“The innovation is that what we had is what I have christened ‘Helicopter election’. For the first time, rigging has been advanced to the level that now the use of a helicopter in perpetuating this electoral atrocity manifested yesterday,” he told newsmen in Abuja.

“Helicopter hovering around Polling units in Lokoja, dropping bullets on innocent, harmless citizens and electorate; and as I speak, yesterday, teargas being fired from this helicopter.

“Despite the fact that this helicopter was used in harassing, intimidating and firing innocent electorates, the votes of those places were carted away and taken to the government house, stuffed and brought back to the collation centre and they have been accepted and admitted and collation is ongoing.

“They brought mayhem on my own community and even killed my nephew, we are waiting to see what INEC will do, but I reject in totality, this fictitious result and I want to say that all these are not about the election, it is about Dino Melaye,” he said.

Recall that the election that saw Melaye emerging as the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District was nullified by an Appeal Court on October 11.

Who Will Save Adams Oshiomhole?   





Trouble has a way of finding its allies. This is a fact.

One person who should agree with this position is the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.

Known for his controversial style as a union leader several years back, Oshiomhole adopted the same pattern as the governor of Edo State.



Many would also recall how he found his way to the exalted office of the National Leader of his party taking over from John Oyegun.

However, like the proverbial saying “karma is a bitch”, it is trouble that is set to mark his fall from grace.

Already suspended from Edo State’s APC, Oshiomhole is facing another trouble with the Governors’ Forum, who called for the convening of a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting or his resignation.

INEC Clears APC For Bayelsa Gubernatorial Election




The All Progressive Congress (APC), has been cleared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to participate in the governorship election in Bayelsa State slated for Saturday.

INEC spokesperson, Festus Okoye, confirmed the party’s participation to Premium Times on Friday.

Recall that a Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa had ruled on Thursday that the APC governorship primaries in Bayelsa was conducted arbitrarily outside the rules of the party.

According to the court, the primaries which held on September 4 was thus null and void.

The court consequently nullified the nomination of David Lyon as APC’s candidate in a suit filed by Heineken Lokpobiri, one of the aspirants that sought the party’s ticket.

Prior to that, a Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday disqualified APC’s Bayelsa deputy governorship candidate, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, from participating in the election.

Mr Degi-Eremienyo was disqualified on grounds that he provided conflicting information on the documents he presented to INEC.

Mr Okoye, however, said that the courts only voided the candidacies of the two flagbearers, adding that the rulings did not stop them from including APC in the ballot papers.

APC will participate in the election in Bayelsa State. Court ruling does not say APC should not participate in the election. APC will be on the ballot paper. The court only says the two candidates are not eligible. But we don’t have candidates on the ballot papers. We only have logos of parties and those are what will be there.

“All the sensitive materials are already leaving the Central Bank (in Yenagoa) for the RACs,” he said.
