APC dropping Ambode in 2019? It’s news from Mars!

Published

on

All the news we got from Mars in years past were fake, unreliable and distracting.

Now the Martians are at work again, reporting that record-breaking and amiable Akinwunmi Ambode, governor of Lagos is contemplating leaving his APC for another party because he’s being denied re-election bid.

Who will replace him? The newsmen from Mars are presenting ex-Speaker YemiIkuforiji. Pronto, the real Ikuforiji spoke up to expose the hoax newsmakers. He has not only debunked the story, but also he has affirmed unflinching support for Ambode.

Hear him: “It is important to tell the world that there is no iota of truth in it( me replacing Ambode in 2019) and I also want to point out that I am the first person in the entire APC setting in Lagos to have noticed and to have come to a conclusion that our Governor by the time he finishes the second or third year, everybody would have seen he deserves a second term and there is no vacancy in Alausa.”

But the strongest arsenal to send the Martians back to their planet is the unquestionable stellar performance of Ambode. Why would APC dump him when he is the one marketing the party? Why would he abandon the party when the whole world including foes are hailing him and asking him to go for a second term so 20 million Lagosians and million others can have more of his radiance?

Do you reject good things? Let these fake peddlers go back to Mars to ply their trade.

Fresh Trouble For Alex Otti

Alex Otti

Political troubles eventually sink all politicians. This is something which Alex Otti has found out.

Once favoured to become the governor of Abia State, that dream is yet to become a reality.

Though still hoping, the man’s chances have continued to dwindle.

Otti, recently suffered a major setback in his political ambition when he got suspended indefinitely by his party, All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), for anti-party activities.

Though there have been questions concerning the legitimacy of the suspension, the possibility of his actualising the dream of becoming Abia state’s first citizen via APGA continues to look vague, especially with talks that he is more concerned about his interest than that of the party having being raised.

Happy Times For Peter Obi

Peter Obi

 

A loss such as the office of the Vice President would make any man sober.

Peter Obi, the vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the last election is not an exception to this rule.

Since the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), declared President Muhammadu Buhari winner of the election, Obi has not had a reason to celebrate.

However, he had no choice but to clear his head of issues such as lawyers and tribunal when he added a year to his age yesterday.

Devoid of a carnival-like celebration, the shindig to celebrate the former Anambra State governor at 58 still brought smiles to his face.

Political Parties

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, on Friday, July 19 closed his case at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja.

The duo of Abubakar and the PDP closed their case after calling 62 witnesses out of the 400 earlier speculated would testify in the case.

Abubakar is challenging the outcome of the February 23, presidential election on the grounds that the result of the election was manipulated to favour President Muhammad Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Closing the case, Chris Uche SAN, informed the tribunal that they would not be calling any other witness after former Osita Chidoka, the 62nd witness had finished testifying for the petitioner.

Chidoka, a former Corp Marshal FRSC informed the tribunal that he was the National Collation Agent and Head of PDP Situation Room for the February 23, 2019 presidential election.

He admitted that he was not there when results were transmitted as well as not seening the INEC server. However, the witness told the tribunal that the INEC Chairman, Mahmoud Yakubu had consistently told them at various times during meetings that a server would be used for the purpose of electronic transmission of results.

Chidoka said he was there when the results were collated by INEC, and that it was done manually.

Though he could not disclose the serial number of the server in which results were transmitted to by party agents, however he reminded the INEC counsel that card reader was not mentioned in their meeting with Mahmood Yakubu but it was used in the election.

Responding to questions from Yakubu Maikyau, counsel to the APC, Chidoka revealed that the INEC Chairman had told him and other stakeholders during meetings prior to the 2019 general elections that they should assume the election was being conducted under the new electoral act, (which was later not signed into law).

He wondered why the commission spent a whooping N27billion on Information Technology, only to come out and tell Nigerians that it did not deploy server for the purpose of electronic transmission of election results.

Chidoka also told the tribunal that the INEC Chairman had told him that it would be immoral for the electoral body not to use electronic transmission of results after N27bn had been spent on IT facilities and equipment.

Earlier, David Nyoga from Kenya, had testified at against the election of President Muhammad Buhari.
Nyoga, an expert in information technology, told the tribunal that from his expert analysis, four websites were discovered to belong to INEC.
Upon cross-examination by counsel to Buhari, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN), the witness said his analysis was based on data supplied by a whistle blower.
The witness further told the tribunal that the information contained in the report of his analysis were extracts made from three of the four websites.

He confirmed that “Fact.Com was created on March 12, against the February 23 presidential election.

Under cross examination by counsel to All Progressives Congress (APC), Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), the witness maintained that INEC chairman can authorise access to the server.

On whether he was engaged and paid for the job, the witness answered that only the logistics for the job were paid for.
“I was not paid but logistics were paid for.”
However, he admitted that he was not granted access to the site by INEC chairman.

He also admitted that the same scientific method, without authorisation, can be used to alter the information contained on the website.
