Arsenal’s Mkhitaryan To Miss Europa League Final Over Safety Fears

Arsenal’s Mkhitaryan To Miss Europa League Final Over Safety Fears

Arsenal’s Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will miss the Europa League final against Chelsea in Baku amid fears over his safety.


Mkhitaryan’s well-being was a concern for Arsenal due to the tense political dispute between Armenia and final hosts Azerbaijan.
Arsenal’s Mkhitaryan to miss Europa League final over safety fears
The Premier League club have decided against Mkhitaryan travelling with the rest of Unai Emery’s squad for next Wednesday’s game.

We are very disappointed to announce that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will not be travelling with the squad for our UEFA Europa League final against Chelsea,” an Arsenal statement announced on Tuesday.
“We have thoroughly explored all the options for Micki to be part of the squad but after discussing this with Micki and his family we have collectively agreed he will not be in our travelling party.”

Azerbaijan’s ambassador to the UK, Tahir Taghizadeh, had insisted Mkhitaryan would be free from any threat of violence, but it was reported the star didn’t believe he would be safe on the pitch.

“Having considered all the current options, we had to take the tough decision for me not to travel with the squad to the UEL Final against Chelsea,” Mkhitaryan tweeted.
“It’s the kind of game that doesn’t come along very often for us players and I must admit, it hurts me a lot to miss it. I will be cheering my teammates on! Let’s bring it home.”

Mkhitaryan had featured in 11 games during the Europa League campaign and his absence will be a big blow as Arsenal look for the victory they need to qualify for next season’s Champions League

“We have written to UEFA expressing our deep concerns about this situation,” the Arsenal statement added.
“We’re also very sad that a player will miss out on a major European final in circumstances such as this, as it is something that comes along very rarely in a footballer’s career.

Micki has been a key player in our run to the final so this is a big loss for us from a team perspective.”

Armeria captain Mkhitaryan skipped the Gunners’ Europa League fixture against Qarabag in October because of tensions caused by a dispute over the Nagorny Karabakh region.

Azerbaijan and Armenia have feuded over Nagorny Karabakh since Armenian separatists seized the territory in a war that claimed about 30,000 lives in the early 1990s.

A ceasefire was agreed in 1994 but the two countries remain locked in a bitter dispute with frequent exchanges of fire, and tensions are such that Mkhitaryan also did not travel to Azerbaijan with former club Borussia Dortmund for a Europa League match against Galaba FK in 2015.

City Player Of The Season Bernardo Makes UCL Pledge To Fans

City Player Of The Season Bernardo Makes UCL Pledge To Fans

 City Player of the Season Bernardo makes UCL pledge to fans
Bernardo Silva vowed that he and his treble-winning team-mates have their sights set on the Champions League after being named Manchester City's Player of the Season at the club's trophy parade on Monday.

Silva enjoyed a fine campaign, nailing down a spot in the starting XI despite Riyad Mahrez's arrival and excelling in a number of different roles, including on the wing and deputising for the often-injured Kevin De Bruyne in midfield.

The Portuguese trickster's haul of seven goals in the Premier League helped City retain the title, while they also claimed the Carabao Cup and FA Cup, the latter of which they won in a 6-0 hammering of Watford on Saturday – a record in the competition.

City announced Silva had topped a fan vote for the individual honour during Monday's celebrations, with the winner declaring his intention to help secure European success next term after falling to Tottenham at the quarter-final stage in the 2018-19 campaign.

"Thank you very much everyone," he said. "The way you pushed us this season. You made it real for us. Without them [the fans], it wouldn't be possible. Next season, we'll come back, trying to give you more titles.

"A lot of hard work has been put in. We're very tired! It's been a long season, a fantastic season for us, but with four trophies [the Premier League, Carabao Cup, FA Cup and Community Shield] for all squad and staff, it's been amazing.


"Hopefully, we want to do better, try and go for European trophies as well - it's what we're missing. The supporters need to demand more from us. European trophies - we need that. Let’s go for it!”
Manager Pep Guardiola will be delighted to hear the 24-year-old's rallying cry, with the two-time winner of the competition not having lifted the coveted trophy since 2011 with Barcelona despite the embarrassment of talent throughout a hugely expensive Man City squad.

Indeed, the Catalan coach was only able to reach the semi-final stage in three consecutive years with Bayern Munich, while failing to navigate past the quarter-finals during his time with the Premier League champions.(Goal.com)

Nigerian Doctor Wins “Brain Tumor Research” Award In U.S.

Nigerian Doctor Wins “Brain Tumor Research” Award In U.S.

Nigerian Doctor Wins “Brain Tumor Research” Award In U.S.
A US-based Nigerian Doctor, Dr Chibawanye Ene has won the 2019 Ronald L. Bittner Award on Brain Tumor Research.

A statement from the Clinical Department, Applied Radiation Oncology U.S., said Ene received the award at the 2019 American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting held from April 13 to April 17 in San Diego.

Ene who is from Akpugo in Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State, won the award with his research work on ‘Anti-PD-L1 Immunotherapy Enhances Radiation-induced Abscopal Response in Glioblastoma’.

It was reported that Immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that helps immune system fight cancer.

The immune system, made up of white blood cells, organs and tissues of the lymph system, helps the body fight infections and other diseases.

The Clinical Department stated Immunotherapy is a type of biological therapy.

Also, Glioblastoma, known as glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), is the most aggressive cancer that begins within the brain. Initially, signs and symptoms of glioblastoma are non-specific.

They may include headaches, personality changes, nausea, and symptoms similar to those of a stroke.

Immunotherapy for glioblastoma has been largely unsuccessful in part, because molecular heterogeneity drives selective elimination of only a subset of tumor cells.

According to the statement, it appears that therapeutic success in patients would require achieving an abscopal effect, where following focused radiation therapy, non-targeted tumor cells are attacked by the immune system.

The statement further revealed to Freshreporters News that it remains unclear how glioblastoma respond to focused radiation in terms of failure location and whether immunotherapy could amplify the immune response to tumor outside the radiation field.

The result of the study’s experiment show that radiation combined with anti PD L1 therapy induces an immunological response to unirradiated glioblastoma.

The researchers are currently optimizing other treatment combinations that could also be readily assessed in phase I human clinical trials.

CBN Gov Sets Up Panel To Revive 50 Textile Firms

CBN Gov Sets Up Panel To Revive 50 Textile Firms

CBN gov sets up panel to revive 50 textile firms
The Central Bank of Nigeria is targeting to revive at least 20 textile companies before the end of the 2019 fiscal period.
The move is contained in the technical cooperation proposal for revamping the cotton, garment and textile sector in Nigeria.

The proposal was made available to our correspondent shortly after the inauguration of the textile implementation committee.
The committee was inaugurated by the CBN Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, on Thursday in Abuja.

Present at the event was the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, and the Deputy Governors of Kaduna and Jigawa states, among other stakeholders in the CTG sector.

The committee, according to the proposal, is saddled with the responsibility to resuscitate at least 50 textile firms by the end of 2023. The committee is also expected to collaborate with stakeholders to identify, name and shame textile smugglers in Nigeria as well as develop a framework for the eradication of smuggling and dumping of textile products into Nigeria.

The committee would also facilitate the production of 200,000 hectares of cotton fields by 2020 and maintain an annual increase of 100,000 hectares over the next three years.

Other tasks of the committee include to determine power requirements by the textile hubs in each state; develop a framework for the production, transmission and pricing of power within the hub; and facilitate collaboration among all related agencies to ensure compliance with regulations.

It is also expected that the committee would work assiduously to deliver a minimum of 50 megawatts of captive power to CTG firms in the interested states by 2021, and facilitate the effective pricing and delivery of gas, black oil and diesel to CTG firms in Lagos and other interested states.
This is expected to enhance their power generation and consumption.

Speaking at the event, Emefiele noted that the CTG sector within the last 20 years had suffered a lot of difficulties.

He gave the key challenges affecting the CTG sector to include low cotton production, poor power and transport infrastructure, obsolete production lines, smuggling and counterfeiting, inadequate local patronage, high cost of production, and multiple taxation , among others.

The apex bank boss said while farmers and processors had had to deal with low-quality seeds, rising operating cost and weak sales due to the high energy cost of running factories, smuggling of textile goods, and poor access to finance were having a negative impact on the growth of the sector.

For instance, he said smuggling of textile goods alone had been estimated to cost the nation over $2.2bn.

He said,
 “It’s no secret that the past 20 years have been very difficult for the cotton, textiles and garment sector.
“Today, most of the textile factories have all stopped operations and the workforce in Nigeria’s textile industry stands at less than 20,000 people.
“In addition, a large proportion of our clothing materials are imported from China and countries in Europe.

Griezmann Jeered As Atletico Draw With Levante

Griezmann Jeered As Atletico Draw With Levante

Griezmann Jeered As Atletico Draw With Levante
Antoine Griezmann was jeered during his last game for Atletico Madrid and Rodrigo might have scored his final goal for the club as they came from behind to draw 2-2 against Levante in La Liga on Saturday.

Griezmann received whistles at the City of Valencia Stadium from the visiting fans, who were also heard chanting “out, out, out” before goals from Sergio Camello and Rodrigo ensured Atletico at least ended the season with a draw.

Diego Simeone has dismissed fears of a mass exodus, despite both Diego Godin and Griezmann already announcing their departures, with the likes of Rodrigo, Juanfran and Filipe Luis all expected to follow.

If this was to be their farewell outing for Atletico, it was an underwhelming finale as Levante, who only secured safety from relegation last weekend, claimed a deserved point.

They might have been disappointed not to take all three after leading 2-0 at half-time thanks to goals from Erick Cabaco and Roger Marti before then playing against 10 men for the best part of 40 minutes after Angel Correa was sent off.

But Atletico fought back, Rodrigo firing into the top corner before 18-year-old substitute Camello scored his first goal for the club, finishing at the back post.

Griezmann was unable to add to his tally of 133 goals in 257 games across all competitions in what became a bitter end to his five successful seasons for the club.

Godin was given a rousing goodbye ceremony at the Wanda Metropolitano last weekend but the timing of Griezmann’s announcement, perhaps deliberately, meant he avoided a last meeting with the Atleti fan

But those that made the trip to Valencia were determined to make their displeasure known and it was noticeable that Griezmann made a swift exit after the final whistle.

Camello, born in Madrid and a product of Atletico’s academy, delivered a more positive message for the future and a timely reminder of Atletico’s ability to endure in recent years, despite the departures of their biggest stars.

Levante took the lead through a brilliant opener from Cabaco, who flicked in with the back of his heel after a header back from Ruben Vezo.

Roger doubled the advantage shortly before half-time, intercepting a loose pass from Thomas Partey before skipping over Rodrigo and firing past Antonio Adan, who was standing in for the injured Jan Oblak.

Atletico’s task became more difficult when Correa was sent off for a petulant kick on Chema but Rodrigo gave them hope with a stunning strike into the top corner, before Koke’s shot fell kindly for Camello at the back post.

Osun Election: Adeleke Approaches Supreme Court Over Oyetola’s Victory

Osun election: Adeleke approaches Supreme Court over Oyetola’s victory
Senator Ademola Adeleke, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the September 2018 governorship election in Osun state has approached the Supreme Court, demanding a reversal of the decision of the Court of Appeal that declared candidate of All Progressives Congress, Mr Gboyega Oyetola, as the winner of the poll.

Adeleke Campaign Organisation, obtained by our correspondent in Osogbo on Saturday, said Adeleke in his appeal, wants the apex court, to uphold his victory at the tribunal, which nullified Oyetola’s election – Punch news reports.

It will be recalled that Osun state Election Petition Tribunal had ruled that Senator Adeleke was the rightful winner of the 2018 governorship election.

But Appeal Court reversed the ruling and set aside the decision of the tribunal and reinstated Gboyega Oyetola as the winner of the election.

According to the statement, six Senior Advocate of Nigeria, led by Dr Onyeachi Ikpeazu, as well as, 17 other senior lawyers, filed four appeals against each of the four majority judgements of the Appeal Court.

Other Senior Advocates of Nigeria that will appear with Ikpeazu include;  Chief N.O.O Oke, SAN; Dr Paul Ananaba, SAN; Emeka Etiaba, SAN; Emeka Okpoko, SAN; and Kehinde Ogunwuminju, SAN.

Other senior lawyers in the team are Niyi Owolade, L.N.Iheanacho, Edmund Biriomoni, Wole Jimi-Bada and 13 others.

The statement reads,
The appeals were against majority judgement in favour of Gboyega Oyetola, All Progressives Congress, the Independent National Electoral Commission and the striking out of the cross appeals of Senator Adeleke.

“The first Appeal was against the majority lead judgement delivered by Justice J.H.Sankey, it is premised on 13 grounds. Senator Adeleke is seeking the following reliefs from the Supreme court; To allow the appeal, set aside the judgement of the Appeal Court delivered in favour of Oyetola, and dismiss Oyetola’s appeal against the decision of the Tribunal.

“The second appeal is against the judgement delivered in favour of the APC, is premised on 31 grounds of appeal. Senator Adeleke listed particulars of errors committed by the Appeal Court and sought the following reliefs from the Supreme Court: To allow this appeal, set aside the decision of the Appeal Court and dismiss the appeal of the respondent against the judgement of the tribunal.

“The third judgement appealed against was the ruling in favour of INEC, it is based on 17 grounds Senator Adeleke listed particulars of errors committed by the judges of Appeal Court and sought the following: An order of the Supreme Court allowing his appeal,
an order of Supreme Court setting aside judgement of Court of Appeal and restoring the judgement of tribunal delivered on the 22nd of March.

The fourth judgement appealed against was that against the cross appeal based on 13.

While listing particulars of errors committed by the Appeal Court, Senator Adeleke seeks the following reliefs from the Supreme Court namely; an order allowing this appeal and setting aside decision of lower court which dismissed the appeal; an order granting reliefs sought in appellate case in the cross appeal, an order restoring the paragraphs struck out from appellate replies to the 2 and 3 respondents replies; a declaration that the appellant won the election in issue by a wider margin than what was found by the lower tribunal in view of the substantial non compliance with the electoral act 2010 as amended;

 and a declaration that the rerun of 27th was null and void and of no effect as the appellant had already won the election in issue upon conclusion of the 22nd September election – punch news reports

FG To Spend N14b On New Murtala Muhammed International Airport
It has been revealed that the Federal Government of Nigeria is looking forward to construct a new Murtala Muhammed International Airport after they might have pulled down the existing one.

Freshreporters News was a ble to gather that the project would be handled by Julius Berger at the cost of N14b.

The terminal in use which was built in 1979 has outlived its usefulness – Hadi Sirika, Minister of state Aviation says

 Dog Saves Newborn Baby Buried In A Field – Thailand

Dog Saves Newborn Baby Buried In A Field – Thailand

A dog in Thailand has been applauded and called an hero for detecting and saving an infant who was allegedly buried in a field by his teenage mother.

Freshreporters News was able to understand that the newborn was lying under a layer of dirt near a farm in the Chumpuang district of Nakhon Ratchasima province but was found the same day (May 15th) by a curious canine named Ping Pong.

The dog dug around the area and began barking, alerting his owner a cattle herder, who went to the site.

I don’t think it was long after his mother buried him before the dog found him,” case officer Panuvat Udkam told AFP.

He added that the boy was healthy, was recovering in hospital, and was so young he had not been named yet.

The teenage mother was charged with attempted murder and abandonment of children.

Officer Panuvat said the suspect was 15 years old and had tried to dispose of the child because she was afraid her parents would get angry.

So after she delivered the baby by herself she buried it,” he said.

Local media coverage hailed the achievement and social media users praised Ping Pong’s good deed.

A dog is the “best friend” of human beings, a Facebook user commented on the page of media outlet Khaosod English.

The men are also guilty of this hence they wife the lady who isn't sexually satisfying and keep numerous girl friends then the moment u both are Comfortably married, the man moves on to start having numerous girls friends then years down the line the woman realises how sexually frustrated she is and might start having flings too.

The Investigation Of Saraki's Corruption Case Not Personal – Magu

The Investigation Of Saraki's Corruption Case Not Personal – Magu

Mr Ibrahim Magu, Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Tuesday said the ongoing investigation of the President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, is not personal.
The Investigation Of Saraki's Corruption Case Not Personal – Magu

Magu stressed that contrary to allegations that Saraki was being witch hunted, his investigation was no different from others as the EFCC only “invite people who have committed crime, people who are corrupt”.

He said this while receiving award for Outstanding Leadership in Public Service by Euro Knowledge Group.

The Euro Group Award is a highest recognition for individual achievement and is awarded annually.

The award acknowledges and celebrates exemplary leaders that have made significant contribution and positive impact in their specific industry.

No,  no, it’s not personal. I am not after anybody.

“Please, I don’t want you to personalise this. It is not different from other investigations we are doing,” he said.

When asked to comment on the statement  by Saraki that he was being witch-hunted,  Magu said  “never.

“You invite people who have committed crime, people who are corrupt.
“If you are not corrupt, you are not here.
“We do our homework very

well: sometimes we conduct preliminary investigations for up to six months and such persons won’t even know we are investigating them,”
Magu said.

He described corruption as “a national disaster and mother of all evils.

If you remove disaster (corruption), you have a peaceful country.”

He said banditry, Boko Haram nuisance and other crimes were “caused by corruption and sustained by corruption.

“It is been funded by stolen and laundered funds, that’s why it is being sustained.”

The acting chairman, however, said that if corruption was tackled, banditry and kidnappings would be sorted out.

He called on Nigerians and stakeholders to take ownership of the fight against corruption, saying that it was not a job for one individual alone.

Magu, expressed gratitude for the award saying it would spur him to do more in the fight against corruption.

Mrs Olayinka Fayomi, Chairman, Foreign Investment Network (FIN), who presented the award on behalf of Euro Knowledge, said the award was in recognition of those who had impacted the economy.

“It is also in recognition of those who have impacted the system from which ever sector they are operating from, and the EFCC is one of them.

“Ever since the period Magu had been acting, there has been a tremendous improvement in the fight against corruption,” she said.

She said that with the award,  Magu had become one of the African Change Agents.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Saraki had recently come under pressure from the anti-graft agency.

The EFCC had confirmed reports that it had opened a fresh investigation into Saraki’s stewardship as President of the Senate as well as a probe of his earnings as governor of Kwara from 2003 to 2011.
Tony Orilade, acting spokesman, EFCC,  said in a statement that EFCC was obligated by law to enthrone probity and accountability in the governance space and had supremely pursued this duty without ill-will or malice against anyone.

“It is in the interest of the public and for Saraki’s personal good that he is not only above board, but be seen at all times to be so.

“Indeed, all the instances in which the EFCC have had cause to sleuth into his financial activities either as a former governor or President of the Senate were driven by overarching public interest and due process of the law,’’ he said.

In his reaction, Saraki insisted that the action of the EFCC was a witch-hunt.

“Our attention has been drawn to the fact that the EFCC has marked certain property belonging to President of the Senate, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, obviously under the claim that they are subject of investigation.
“The action of the EFCC only reinforced our earlier stated position that their current investigation is mischievous, contrary to the tenets of the rule of law and only aimed at settling scores.
“The EFCC’s move to investigate him is a mere witch-hunt exercise, aimed at settling scores, laced with malicious and partisan motives,” Saraki’s Media Adviser, Mr Yusuph Olaniyonu, said in a statement

Gabriel Jesus Should Leave Man City – Rivaldo

Gabriel Jesus Should Leave Man City – Rivaldo

Gabriel Jesus Should Leave Man City – Rivaldo

The Brazilian legend, Rivaldo, has adviced Gabriel Jesus to quit Manchester City this summer so as to get more regular playing time elsewhere.

Recall that Grabriel Jesus joined Man City from Palmeiras in 2017 and his current contract will be active until 2023.

The 22-year-old striker has actually featured in 46 competitions this season but started just 20 of those, scoring 19 goals as his side retained their Premier League and Carabao Cup crowns but slided-out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage.

Although Jesus described Manchester as his "home" in January, but latter in April he admitted that he has been frustrated by his fluctuating role in Pep Guardiola's team.

Read Jesus' statement:
 "I always want to play. Of course it frustrates me but in a good way, it makes me want to train and work hard... I have always made it very clear that I always want to be with the team."

"As a young prospect he could continue and keep evolving with Guardiola, hoping that more chances come, or he could leave for another club of similar stature to try to become a regular starting 11 player.

"I see the second option as the best solution. He already gained experience and maturity at City and looks prepared for a new challenge in a team where he could be more important for the team."

5 Days After Installation, Kano Court Declares Ganduje's Appointment Of New Emirs Null And Void

A Kano state high court located at Ungogo has declared the appointment and the installation of four new emirs by the state government as "null and void".

The court the ordered a return to status quo pending the hearing of the suit against the appointment of the emirs.

It was further gathered that the state Gov. Abdullah Ganduje had on Friday, May 10, defied the court order and issued appointment letters to the new emirs. It was also gathered that between May 11 and 12, the governor presented the new emirs with their staffs of office.

VIO Officials Allegedly Kill Ebonyi Elder Statesman

Mgbada who was until his death the Secretary of Ebonyi State Elders Council, was said to have been driving with his wife when he was accosted by the VIO officials.

He was rushed to the Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki where he was confirmed dead and his remains deposited in the hospital’s mortuary – LIB blog reports

Reacting to Mgbada's death, the state governor, Dave Umahi, in a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Emmanuel Uzor, described the death of the elder statesman as callous and ordered a full investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death.

 The statement reads:

The Governor on hearing about the death of Chief Mgbada expressed great sadness and ordered the Commissioner of Police to arrest and prosecute the suspects who paraded themselves as VIO Officials. Let it be known that the Governor in a town-hall meeting with Ebonyians proscribed all task-force agents working under any guise using the state government as cover.

“In the proscription order, the Governor also dissolved all revenue and tax agents in the state at all levels with a promise to convoke another town hall meeting where a new tax and other revenue will be deliberated and agreed upon and the Governor is yet to convene this meeting before this ugly incident.

“The Governor is saddened by this careless death and wishes to dissociate the state government from the illegal activities of the VIO and other task force agents in the state and directs for immediate arrest and prosecution of such illegal tax or revenue agents.“

Three members of the VIO team were immediately arrested by the anti -kidnapping unit of the Nigeria Police while the leader of the team, an old man was equally arrested.

Kim Kardashian Secures Release Of 17 Prisoners

Kim Kardashian Quietly Funded Fight To Free 17 Federal Inmates

An American media personality, Kimberly Noel Kardashian West, has worked towards the release of 17 prisoners in the United States(U.S)

Freshreporters News recalled that she has also successfully impelled 19 prisoners who were detained for lesser crimes to be freed in the past 90 days.

The News Agency of Nigeria had reported that a few months ago, Kardashian hinted that she was deep into her new found love for criminal justice when she helped foot the rent bills for a man who was recently released from jail.

According to reports, the reality TV star and mother of three has been spending a lot of money to help secure the release of inmates, who have been doing time.

Defense counsel to Kardashian, Brittany Barnett, in partnership with MiAngel Cody of The Decarceration Collective. has worked closely with her to make this a reality.

The lawyers had gotten all the legal documentation to get the inmates to have fresh start to life while Kardashian had been footing the bills.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that Kim has been getting all the inmates free while trying to keep it away from the media.

Kardashian is reportedly paying  five years rent for Mathew Charles, a man released from jail.

It is reported that Kardashian read about his plight and took it upon herself to help him secure accommodation.

Mathew Charles, who had served 20 of his 35-year sentence for a non-violent drug and weapons charges was the first to be released under new prison reform laws.

Kim is said to have reached out to Charles and his friend privately on  March 10 and generously offered to pay his rent and to help him find a stable place to live.

Charles was recently released from jail after serving 25 years and would be living in a rent free house for the next five years courtesy of Kardashian.

However, it is no news that Kardashian has a special interest in prison reforms in the U.S.

Her interest in making the reforms made her pay a visit to the President of the U.S., Donald Trump, back in 2018.

Omoyele Sowore Has Reacted To The Suspension As National Chairman Of AAC

 The NEC has announced the suspension Sowore today in Abuja, who also replaced with Leonard Nzenwa as the new National Chairman.

Read the statement :

“Since our party was registered, fellow party men and women, it has failed to hold the constitutional mandatory meetings. Huge monies, millions of naira and dollars have not properly been accounted for, particularly, hundreds of millions of dollars raised for our party’s presidential candidate.

“Allegations of foreign funds which were allowed to flow into the party in contravention of the provision of the 1999 constitution and the Electoral Act and were utilised by the party’s presidential candidate and certain individuals without knowledge of the party have been clearly established by all. We cannot be seen to be doing what the people we’re criticising are doing.”

Now, seeing Sowore's reaction, he revealed in a statement that it is actually the members led by Nzenwa that were suspended.


See Sowore's statement:

These members, led by Leonard Nzenwa, former national secretary, who was suspended for financial impropriety and anti-party activities, have demonstrated by their actions that they have never been, and have never shared, the core beliefs that those of us in the African Action Congress hold.”

Kano Governor Ganduje To Emir Sanusi – Resign Or Be Sacked

Kano Governor Ganduje To Emir Sanusi – Resign Or Be Sacked

Resign or you will be sacked - Ganduje reportedly tells Emir Sanusi

It's of high possibility that the ongoing probe by the Kano state government’s anti-corruption agency has being the gateway to the charges being filed against the Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II.

Sanusi’s status as the only first class emir in the state was whittled when the state government broke the emirate, carving out four new emirates and appointing first class emirs to rule them – Daily post reports

Freshreporters News gathered that the exercise which lasted only two days, fuelled speculations that the government was going after the emir over his rumoured support for the opposition during the recently concluded governorship election. The fresh investigation by the Kano state public complaints and anti-corruption commission as well as the bid to appoint new first class emirs by the state assembly kick-started almost simultaneously last week.

According legit.ng, the source in the commission, who craved for anonymity, on Saturday, May 11, said that the ongoing probe on by the commission was targeting the emir, noting that, ''it will reach to a point where the commission will transfer the case to court for the emir to defend himself. After our findings, whoever is found wanting in misappropriating the public funds will be dragged before the court.

” It also stated that a government source disclosed that Emir Sanusi, after sensing trouble at the turn of events between the state government and the palace lately, sent business tycoon, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, to beg the governor to have a change of mind.

“I can confidently tell you that when the probe was renewed and the move for creation of four new emirates in the state started, the emir sent the renowned business mogul, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, to Ganduje to plead with him to stop the two moves. 

“However, Ganduje in his response told Dangote to go back and tell the emir that he should choose from three alternatives: To resign on his own or be removed from office or the government will create additional emirates in the state.

 “Ganduje assured Dangote that one of the three options must be implemented by government since the emir will not stop playing partisan politics against him. If not for the quick intervention by Dangote, Ganduje would have dethroned the emir,” the source revealed.

However, the source added that even though the governor has spared the emir being removed from office, there is likelihood that after the turbaning ceremony of the four new emirs, Ganduje will transfer the emir to another emirate and replace him with one of the newly appointed emirs.

The JAMB registrar disclosed that 116 exam centres had been blacklisted, including a Computer-based Test centre in Akokwa in Delta State which bribed exam officers with N1.7m.


We have recovered the payment voucher and the concerned staff are being investigated,  but they claimed that they received the bribe because their lives were in danger,” Oloyede stated.

He noted that the exams recorded multiple registrations, pointing out that a candidate, for instance, registered 23 times for the examination.

Oloyede said, “A total of 116 centres have been de-listed or suspended. Out of this number, 18  have been sanctioned by the Governing Board of JAMB with suspension for between one and three years for registration-related misconduct.”


He directed candidates to send ‘RESULT’ to the short code, 55019, on their handsets, adding that they did not need to patronise a cyber cafe to check their results.

 Senator Ademola Adeleke's Arrest Is A Recipe For Crisis – PDP

Senator Ademola Adeleke's Arrest Is A Recipe For Crisis – PDP

PDP condemns arrest of Senator Ademola Adeleke, says its a recipe for crisis

The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has condemned the arrest and detention of its member, Senator Ademola Adeleke.

The party made this declaration in a statement released by Kola Ologbondiyan, the spokeman, thereby saying that the arrest is a recipe for crisis.

Read the full statement below :

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) informs the nation that the police today Monday, May 6, 2019, arrested and detained our victorious candidate in the Osun Governorship election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, in total disregard for the extant order of the Federal High Court.

This is highly provocative, an invitation to anarchy and recipe for a very serious crisis not only in Osun but also in the judiciary and our polity as a nation.
The arrest and detention of Senator Adeleke is a direct act of violence against our laws, the institution of the judiciary and the 1999 Constitution (as amended).



This is part of the grand plot by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to coerce Senator Adeleke to relinquish the mandate that was freely given to him by the people of Osun state, which was further established by the election petition tribunal.



The plot is to drag Senator Adeleke before an ostensibly compromised magistrate court, over the same issues of alleged forged school testimonial that is already before the Federal High Court, with a view to using such corridor to secure a stampeded trial and hurried conviction, and put him out of circulation, over trump-up charges.



The heinous calculation by the APC is to ensure that Senator Adeleke is not free to be sworn in as governor of Osun state as they know he will surely obtain justice and retrieve his stolen mandate at the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court.



The police arrested Senator Ademola on the guise of an invitation despite the direct orders of the Federal High Court, restraining it or its agents from arresting and detaining him on account of statement of result and testimonial duly issued by the Ede Muslim Grammar School, Ede, pending the determination of the originating summons pending in the court.



Senator Adeleke, as a law-abiding citizen, honoured an invitation by the police only for him to be arrested and detained in a dingy facility in Maitama, in direct affront to the order of the Federal High Court.

The PDP holds that any arraignment of Senator Adeleke in a magistrate court, for a matter that is already being heard by the Federal High Court, is a calculated plot to cause crisis in the judicial system, enmesh the matter in unnecessary controversy as a pathway to truncate the course of justice in his matter.



The PDP therefore demands forthwith, the immediate and unconditional release of Senator Adeleke by the police.
This demand is predicated on fears already in the public space that there are plots by certain elements to poison him in detention.

The PDP therefore cautions those playing the script of the APC with regard to Senator Adeleke to retrace their steps and allow the people of Osun state to move ahead with their preferred governor. Nothing, not even these heinous plots, will subvert this reality.
