1. Like a thief in the night, 11 lawmakers and their Speaker, Adewale Omirin attempted to steal the mace…but they were stopped in their tracks. This is what the PDP in Ekiti state wants you to believe about the sidelined All Progressives Congress lawmakers of the state assembly.
2. After publicly coming out as gay in a country where it is illegal, it is safe to assume that Orange academy founder, Kenny Brandmuse has relocated to some gay-friendly nation.
While that remains to be ascertained, there is no stopping him, as yet again, he said on Facebook: “One day, very soon, it will no longer be news that some us are gay because the next generation will regard all mankind with dignity, irrespective of sexuality.
3. Apparently, Sokoto is a no-nonsense state, or they simply don’t fancy electioneering season.
First, they tell politicians not to use sirens during the election period, and now they have embarked on the removal of bill boards illegally erected by politicians in the state. According to the Chairman of Sokoto State Task Force on Illegal Structures, Aminu Bala, “We are not out to witchhunt any candidate or political party, the aim is just to sanitize the city and make sure that nobody tramples on the sokoto master plan.”
4. Mr President, if we are touts, then you must be a pick-pocket and thief.
Spokesman of Northern Elders Forum, Professor Ango Abdullahi, has reacted to the recent comment of Jonathan, by saying: “President Jonathan should know that, in a motor park, there are touts and there are pick-pockets, so if some past leaders are touts, some sitting leaders are pick-pockets and thieves. So, you have to make your pick from that.”
5. The land belongs to Delta state government, but 300 motor mechanics, who have been using the property, are irate over their ejection.
They have held a demonstration against what they described as the “dehumanising administrative style of the Chairman of Sapele Local Government Area, Mr. Ejaife Odebala and the Majority Leader of the state House of Assembly, Chief Monday Igbuya, to render us jobless and turn us into miscreants by forcefully and unlawfully sacking us from our workshops.”
6. The unidentifiable Jomo Gbomo expressed MEND’s support for Buhari, but another ex-militant of MEND, Reuben Wilson says the endorsement is a scam of the APC.
The militant-turned-pastor says: “MEND ceased to exist from the day we all keyed into the amnesty programme of the Federal Government. We challenge the Jomo Gbomo to show his face on a national television the way we will do, as we have always done.”
7. Buhari’s people would like to announce that he did not collapse, he only tripped on his wrapper.
An aide of Muhammadu Buhari denied reports that Buhari collapsed in Calabar while addressing party faithful at a stadium.
