The controversy over the Yobe North senatorial ticket has split APC members into different camps with some declaring their support for Machina and others backing Lawan. Machina, who won the primary election held in the district last month, has come under tremendous pressure to step down for the Senate President.

2022: Osun APC, PDP’s Campaign Outcome

By Isaac Olusesi  Globally, defection and re-defection by politicians only point up the dialectics of political equation and dynamics of electoral calculus.This underscores the wave of ideological particularism or inclination in advanced democracies; but, in Nigeria, it tells so much about the tide of the political elite’s personal economic pursuits, calculating what goes into the stomach with mathematical exactitudes. Defection, re- defection is rather the politician personal aggrandizement which is the subjective condition, oft-garbed in over bloated electoral value. However, for all practical purposes, decamping or re-decamping, secretly or overtly is the contextual after-effect of electioneering campaigns for the upcoming governorship poll in Osun State. And it is aimed at securing quality large support for the political parties and their candidates for the governorship election, saliently competitive and determinable by such factors as partisan strength, campaign issue

10 Reasons Why I Support the Atiku-Okowa Ticket

Dear citizens of Nigeria,  Our party has finally picked an able Vice Presidential candidate in Governor Ifeanyi Okowa. As it stands, we now have the most  balanced ticket in Nigeria. It is Muslim-Christian ticket. It is a strong Northern-Southern ticket. We are for secularism, where religion is separate from government. We have a VP with one leg in the Southeast and the other in the South-South. Nigerians, we are ready, and we humbly beg for your votes.  So, why should  you vote for Atiku as President on February 25, 2023? I will give you 10 reasons. 1.  Support Atiku because he creates jobs. He co-founded INTELS, one of the largest oil and gas/ports logistics firms in Africa, in the 80s. His Priam group employs more people than most state governments. Creating jobs for Nigeria’s youth will end insecurity! 2. Support Atiku because he is a lover of education, who established the American University of Nigeria, Yola. Through that institution, he gave scholarships to indigent students, in

FREE YOURSELF FROM SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS AND HYPNOTISM: YOUR CHILDREN AND PARENTS ARE NOT WITCHES AND WIZARDS

Reads........... Opinions, As I write this piece a lot of families are in disarray because of allegations, accusations and counter allegations and accusations of witchcraftcy and others.  Some men and women have rejected their children and parents based on false prophecy of some miserable self ordained, self-acclaimed and self-called pastors and prophets and prophetesses.  Unproductive and unsuccessful Minds always look for persons to blame for their woes like Unoka the father of Okonkwo in the famous and award winning novel 'Things Fall Apart' who always blamed his chi (god) for his poor annual farm yield whereas his woes and high indebtedness was as a result of his laziness and inability to go and farm in far/distant fertile lands, his mates farmed and recorded high yield.  Some parents have buried their children alive same way some children have killed their parents simply on the suspicion and prophecies of some evil pastors that their children are witches and wizards, same

Senate moves to establish Police Pension Board,…seeks equity in pension payments between police, military

By EgbemaVoice, The Senate on Tuesday considered a bill seeking to establish the Police Pension Board. The bill which scaled second reading on the floor was sponsored by Senator Elisha Ishaku (Adamawa North). The bill was read for the first time on June 14th, 2022. Leading the debate on the bill, Senator Ishaku noted that the current pension arrangement of the Nigeria Police is under the Pension Commission by virtue of Section 5(1) of the Pension Reform Act 2014.
