Here are the top 5 stories that drove conversation today:
Apparently, President Muhammadu Buhari had a filled day. After meeting with Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano at the Presidential Villa over the upcoming state election, he still found time to ‘endorse’ Kaduna governor Nasir El-Rufai’s re-election for 2019 — or so El-Rufai claims.
However, not everybody believes Buhari is who he claims to be. Weeks ago, the pro-Biafra group leader Nnamdi Kanu claimed the president was not in Nigeria and the person posing as Buhari was actually someone person from Sudan who had undergone plastic surgery to make him look like Buhari.
Restating Kanu’s outrageous claim, former Niger Delta militant leader, Asari Dokubo, has dropped another shocker that President Buhari was indeed cloned while he was in London.
Meanwhile, controversial ex-petroleum minister Diezani Alison-Madueke is ready to put up a fight. She has told the court that she wants to return to Nigeria to defend the corruption charges against her.
While it’s only fitting, considering the plethora of corruption charges laid against her since she left office in 2015, she goes ahead to explain why, here.
Despite finally splitting up, the tension between the estranged twins Peter and Paul Okoye has continued. The most recent jab coming from Paul Okoye who said on Tuesday that the hit song “Bank Alert” was his debut solo song. Also, he said he had some regrets. Here’s his claim.
In the United States, President Donald Trump, speaking on the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas that left over 50 dead and 500 injured, described the shooter as ‘sick and demented’, seemingly avoiding using the ‘Terrorist’ word, which many believe can be attributed to the fact that the shooter was a white man.
